Detour | Another Beer Bread Variation

Cooking with Gas, Part 1B
 
 
 
This series is about cooking with hard liquor. The vodka quinoa muffins were the first post. This recipe is related by virtue of being alcohol. I used the last of the crappy (for this beer cannot be mentioned without being ridiculed) Redbridge I bought in April. Then I fed the bread to my coworkers and GF friend. Talk about curse reversing…or dispersing. They all said it was dry, and I do not wonder why (besides the obvious, that teff is a very thirsty flour) . Dead hypotheses’ dessicated limbs, to use a little William James terminology, break under the weight of live friends.

Advocatus Avocado | Avocado Banana Bread

Avocados are a polarizing ingredient, like cilantro. Either you think it’s the bee’s knees or you think it’s the devil’s hooves. Wednesday’s Foodie Call challenge ingredient was avocado. It’s nice to have over 200 recipes from which to choose (and that’s just my blog right here). I Vitamixed some avobachoco. As my student job supervisor said when I made it in 2012, many customers confirmed that it would be a great baby food. Funny, I forgot that it contained almond butter until I checked the recipe just now.

Mix CDs and Porridge Bread

For weeks now, I’ve been wanting to give yeast bread a go at the Abbey in order to test a jar of yeast, to see if it was still active. Bread creation satisfies me on many levels. This is hardly a new observation.
 
Something I also find satisfying is making playlists and burning them to CDs.

Slippery Supper: Devil’s Tentacles Pasta with Lemon and Arugula

Tofu shirataki noodles and I have a contentious relationship.

At 20 calories per serving (40 calories in the entire bag), what’s not to love, you ask? (If I may put words in your mouth…)

Another Chapter in the Quickbread Chronicles

 
Another day, another dollar, another job application, another recipe…lest this gets boring, remember that you are alive, you can move, and you have the use of your five senses and third eye. Reverend Justin Terry’s take-home message from the Sunday evening service at Arlington Metaphysical Chapel was,
 
God is blessing you, whether you can see it or not. But it’s always there.
