I looked through the catalog and didn't find one (forgive me if there is and I missed it) so I thought I'd make one. Post recipes, cooking tips, talk about cooking, etc.

I'll start. I'm pretty young (recently turned 18) and have only been cooking for a couple years. I learned because no one else in my family knew how to cook and it turned into one of my favorite pastimes. I particularly love baking deserts and cooking Asian recipes such as Thai chicken.

Pic is raspberry cheesecake that I saw on google.

Your best bet is to go to an Asian grocery store, preferably Japanese or Korean. I've never seen it cut that thin, or the precise kind of cut, in other stores. Obviously that's not much help.

Some people recommend using chuck, ribeye, or even boneless short ribs. You definitely want it fatty. And if you have a friendly butcher at your local store they might be happy to cut something extra thin if you ask. It's definitely hard on your own.

Gonna make this with strawberry whip cream on the side for Valentine's dessert. What kind of flour should I use for max fluffy? I've read some say bread flour and some say cake flour?

No. 514739


For a really fluffy cake my grand ma would use self raising flour which I think is cake flour in usa add a teaspoon of vinegar to the batter and then let the cake batter sit by a window with a wet tea towel over the top of the bowel for at least 3 hours . She said the batter had to ferment . Her cakes were very fluffy . Oh , the vinegar is to stop crumbling . Hope it goes well anon .

No. 514747

>bread flour
hell no. you want to use cake flour. bread flour has high protein/gluten in it for bread making (hence the name) and thus more dense. cake flour is the exact opposite. less gluten/protein and less dense, makes for light and fluffy cakes. self-rising flour isn't really flour a type of flour, it's just standard (all purpose) that has a rising agent added. for something really fluffy you want to make a chiffon cake which is the what meme japanese cheesecake is (which btw, are only "wiggly" when they are still warm before they set). chiffon cakes make use of meringue so they're a bit harder for a first time baker but they make a light and pillowy cake.

I keep having dreams of halloumi burgers from Burger King.
Like, fucking why? out of all the things.
2 weeks ago, I tried a halloumi burger, I really liked it. Before this, I hadn't had any fast food for 3 months. I had one real life conversation about it with a friend who was curious about the taste, and I told her to try it.
Since then, I have now had 3 dreams where I sell people the idea of how amazing the halloumi burger is.

I just woke up from a dream where I was spitting up parts of my spine. It was odd.

No. 514554

from dream moods

To dream about yours or someone else's spine, represents your support system, your strength, stamina and responsibilities. You need to keep your head high even in difficult times. Alternatively, the spine suggests that you need to stay true to your own convictions and be firm. The spine is symbolic of strength. The dream may be one of the contrary and thus suggests that you are "spineless."

To spit in your dream signifies an aspect of yourself that you need to get rid of. Spitting represents anger, spite and contempt. Alternatively, the dream implies that you have something that you want to say. Spit it out!

No. 514024

Your local cigarette shop should have a good amount of glass options, with spare parts as well. Surprisingly cigarette stores have more glass than weed stores. Also you could try 420science.com or hemper.com they have pieces around 50$-40$. I’ve had most success getting pieces from smoke shops personally, Online can be pretty expensive

No. 514029

Same anon, sorry. Buuuttt you will most likely get a piece that has a nail with it, titanium nails are less breakable than quartz or glass but they don’t taste as clean and hold heat longer. Be careful not to get your glass or quartz nail wet because heating it will cause it to burst. Also don’t take your dabs red hot let your nail cool for 30seconds just so your not hurting your lungs or burning up the oil too quick. Keep the nail clean by wiping the inside with a q tip right after dab or just burning the residue off with your torch. Lots of people say quartz nails are better than glass, but don’t worry to much about that just get a glass rather than titanium.

A hot take from a moid, considering that moids straight up murder gay men with impunity on a mere suspicion that they might rape them (gay panic). I sure hope that one day I can just waste a scrot because he's sexually attracted to women and would thus target women in case he decided to rape.

If (hopefully) he gets raped he will immediately proceed to screech about how horrible it is, how much worse it is for scrots and how women need to fix it for him. Disgusting shitdick.

I go on facebook and the first thing I see is some cuck whining about how he's "afraid to date women now" cause some guy got killed over muh fake rape accusations. Women go through way worse shit from males, on a way more frequent basis, yet you don't see women saying they're afraid to date men unless they've been abused by them before. These faggots truly live life on easy mode, how they don't notice it is beyond me.

I barely see any insects flying around anymore compared to my childhood. I remember seeing butterflies quite often but now I don't even remember the last time I've seen one.

No. 513853

It's no secret insect populations are down I believe. However it depends on what area you live in as well probably. I live in an urban area but a forest starts right behind my house so I see more butterflies than ever now.
I remember seeing an article about people noticing less trouble with insect splatter on their windshield which is probably correlated with less insects.

very late reply, but sometimes when I'm walking in my city, I'll usually see men in suits throw their cigarettes on the street while walking. I wish I had the balls to pick up the butt that they didn't even put out and just smear it onto their suits or grab their face and shove it into their eyes. I already hate smokers for just stinking up the air around me, being inconsiderate assholes who litter too is just the cherry on top.

No. 514263

I'm living in a central european country with lots of agriculture, and the decrease of insects in the past few years is so obvious it's pretty scary.
no surprise tho, since most of the landscapes are insecticide soaked monoculture fields without any wild spots. some farmers tend to have 'green areas' inbetween their fields, but they're mostly so tiny it's a joke.
Some people I know have an industrial canola plant next to their property, and there isn't growing or living ANYTHING in between the canola plants.nothing. no mosses or tiny weeds or whatever stubburn small plants who normally always grow somewhere inbetween.
since there have been bans on a few specific pesticides, the only plant other than canola which survives there now is a bit of wild chamomille.

No. 514265

addition, this is a bit of a rant:
Farmers are'nt getting any support from the government in terms of changeing their agriculture towards being more sustainable for the environment.
Lots of them can't even afford to fulfill the bureaucratic requirements to be certified as an organic farm even if they wanted to. (not that the state of 'organic' solves all those problems but insects and soil fertility are key factors for a working ecosystem).
For a wealthy country, with the resources to improve or even secure their sustainability to not fuck up your ecosystem permanently which you're absolutely dependent on, this is literally retarded.

Jaahas, tälläinen lanka täällä. Suomessa nyt ei ole oikein mitään kunnon lolcoweja, ellei lasketa näitä joitain bloggaajia. Tosin ei tarjoa samanlaista contettia kuin jenkkien. Myös Jodelin snäppijuorut, blogijuorut ja blogijuorut on tavallaan Suomen lolcow-kanavia.

Mun lempi suomi-lolcow oli Miss Mia, joka on nyt nykyisin omalla nimellä YouTubessa. Teki videon millaista on seurustella julkkiksen kanssa, vaikka tämä "julkkis" oli vain joku MC hardstyle-bileissä. Nyt harrastaa crossfittiä ja tekee tulkintoja tarot-korteilla ym. työkseen Hollannissa. Eli eipä enää kinost, kun ei tuu edes draamavideoita kuinka joutu kadulle edellisen exän kanssa ja sen exä kusi asuntomahikset.
