I should get a crepe pan
is that a thing?
I don’t even know how to make crepes
Crepes are the shit
And Jules, you on the internet. You can FIND A WAY.
And once you do, yo house gon be filled with nutella and fruit for the rest of yo life.
Shit, I’ve been making crepes for years with an ordinary non-stick frying pan. Crepes are great because they don’t have a lot of ingredients and it’s stuff you usually have on hand.
- 1 cup flour
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup water, 3/4 cup milk (you can fiddle with the proportions—as long as it’s a little over 1 cup of half water, half milk)
- 3 tbsp melted butter (I’ve used margarine and the world didn’t end)
- 1/4 tsp salt or whatever
Mix it all up. Use a ladle to pour a dollop into the pan (don’t overdo it, they’re thin so you don’t need a lot of batter), then quickly lift up the pan and like roll it around so the batter spreads into a bigger circle. Let it cook for a bit, then flip it over and do the other side. Then put it on a plate and do the next one.
When I make crepes for myself I end up just putting toppings on it while the next one’s cooking and just eating them one by one standing at the stove because omgggg so simple so good
my favourite toppings are lemon juice & sugar, bananas & nutella, raspberry jam & goat cheese, butter & brown sugar

quixotess ordered pizza the first night we were at the AMC. It was this kind of pizza, which I had never had before, and IT IS MARVELLOUS. It basically gives up and admits that the purpose of pizza is to get more cheese into your mouth.
Last night I posted about jiaozi, so tonight let’s expand to a few other types of Chinese dumplings, which are mostly associated with dian xin (i.e. dim sum in Cantonese, and a majority of dim sum dishes are Cantonese in style and origin), which you’re probably familiar with as traditional tea-drinking fare ordered from rolling carts in a boisterous dining hall. In addition to jiaozi (#1,5,8), here we’ve got:
- Xiaolongbao, Shanghai-style soup-filled dumpling (#2,9)
- Xiajiao (i.e. har gow in Cantonese), shrimp crystal dumplings (#3,4)
- Shumai, open-top pork dumplings (#6)
- Huintuin (i.e. wonton in Cantonese), soup dumplings (#7)
Each type has specific fillings, dough, wrapping styles, and cultural implications. Know your Chinese dumplings and enjoy! :)
My favourite dim sum place downtown doesn’t have carts, they give you a list of all the dishes and you check off which ones you want, and every goddamn time I forget that “soup dumplings” are actually dumplings in soup (i. e., wontons) and not soup-filled dumplings. Wontons are fine…but I always want the wonderfully saggy juicy meaty bundles of goodness that are soup-filled dumplings.
Describing white people using food items
James had a kingsmill white bread complexion, he blushed slightly it seemed like someone had spread strawberry jam over his cheeks. His hair was the colour of custard that had been watered down severely like the nasty one they served back in primary school that I begged the lunch ladies not to let near my cake. I didn’t care that the cake may have been dry I didn’t want that shit near my cake.
i love the fuck out of condensed milk and toast w/condensed milk (and butter!!!) sounds fucking amazing—but it *looks* like somebody ejaculated all over this poor toast, and that sorta makes me gag.
Hah! If ejaculate actually tasted like condensed mi…I’ve said too much.
…Via foodblog Spice City Toronto, here’s a Tumblr of ’shopped movie poster homages to Gandhi Roti, the famed Queen West joint serving up a unique East Indian version of West Indian (Trinidadan) roti.
- WHAT IS THIS I CAN’T EVEN
- The love of roti does strange things to people
- I love Gandhi’s as much as anyone else but if you feel you’ve got to make a point by bashing Island Foods I will CUT YOU, so watch your backs, BlogTO commenters

Can it be Christmas already?
I’m am seriously craving greens and sweet potatoes and dressing and corn bread and sweet potatoes and macaroni and honey baked ham and sweet potatoes…
I…I don’t understand? These foods are in season. You can have them now regardless of holiday observance… I don’t observe Christmas and I totally eat these things…
Next you’ll suggest making latkes before Hanukkah!
