whole-milk

5

A dessert worthy of a Battle Chef Champion. Watch it in action here.

What You Need:

Helado:

  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1 cup of cream
  • ½ cup of sugar
  • 1 TBL lemon juice
  • ½ cup bag non-fat Milk Powder
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 pound dry ice

Slime eggs and sauce:

  • 1 cup canola oil
  • 4 cups grape soda and or grape juice
  • 1 ½ TBL gelatin
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  1. Note: use dry ice with extreme caution. It can cause serious burns if you’re not careful.
  2. For Helado: place milk, cream sugar, lemon juice, milk powder, vanilla extract and salt into a blender carafe. Blend until combined. Set aside. Using gloves, place dry ice onto a tea towel. Fold over the other end of the tea towel and crush with a hammer until it’s powder. Carefully pour into a metal bowl.
  3. In a stand mixer with a metal bowl and a paddle attachment, pour in your ice cream base. Turn the beater to low. Slowly sprinkle in your crushed dried ice into your mix. Allow the smoke to dissipate before adding another spoon. Once it’s thick, speed up the blender and continue adding dry ice until soft serve consistency is achieved. Spoon soft serve into your spiral molds and freeze until hard, about 4 hours. You’ll have leftovers. Eat them now, or freeze for later. Discard any unused dry ice.
  4. For slime eggs and sauce: Place oil in the fridge. In a large saucepan, add grape juice and soda. Cook on high until reduced to about 1 ½ cups of liquid. Pour 1 cup of your liquid into a measuring cup. Pour a little into a small bowl with your gelatin. Allow to bloom for five minutes.
  5. Add the rest of your 1 cup into a small sauce pan. Bring to a low boil. Once boiling, add your gelatin mixture and turn off the heat. Stir until the gelatin is totally dissolved. Pour into a squirt bottle and allow to cool for 15 mins. Pour remaining half cup of your liquid mixture into the saucepan. Add cornstarch and whisk until dissolved. Place in the fridge to cool.
  6. Remove your cold oil from the fridge. Squirt droplets of your gelatin mixture into your cold oil to form little “eggs.” Drain out the oil and rinse with cold water. Place eggs in a small jar until ready to use.
  7. To assemble: Mix eggs with a little cool sauce. Remove ice cream from molds. Fill the crevice with eggs and spoon sauce over dessert. Serve immediately.

Today’s oatmeal. Steel cut oats (overnight in whole milk), blueberries, blackberries, a pinch of salt, vanilla, and sweetened with a little bit of condensed milk. Cooked together. Then topped with maple almond butter, pepitas and mini semisweet chocolate chips.

This is one of the best I’ve made. The condensed milk makes it taste a bit like cheesecake, which is definitely unexpected but not at all unwelcome.

Kinktober #15: Lap Dance

Guess who’s back~ (This is a prostitute!Kageyama AU, although that is barely relevant in this fic, because it’s turned into a cringey!Hinata AU at this point)


“I wanna try something.”

These words, spoken out of the blue by Hinata, on a Saturday evening that previously held no other plans but Top Ramen and board games, strike fear into Kageyama’s heart.

Hinata is staring at him expectantly, adorably, but Kageyama isn’t falling for it. I want to try something means Hinata has gotten ideas into his head again, sex ideas, and Kageyama is about to be an awkward erotic guinea pig if he doesn’t think of a way out quick.

“Why don’t we play Monopoly first—” he starts to say, realizing his mistake too late. Neither of them even likes Monopoly. But they’d decided not to splurge on a Wii until they had more money saved up, so here they are.

Hinata rolls his eyes. “You know we’d just end up having sex on the board and ruining it anyway!” He flashes Kageyama a cheeky thumbs up. “This is a shortcut.”

“I'm… not sure I want to take this shortcut,” Kageyama tells him.

Hinata pouts. “I promise it’ll be fun. Really! I did a lot of research online.”

Fuuuuck my life, Kageyama thinks. It just keeps getting better.

58. the wonderlands by stylinsoncity

Wonderful, beautiful storytelling. 7/10

also that all hail king julien show is genuinely weird as shit. like i watched most of it with my brother over the summer and like. bizarre mix of toilet humor with really weird adult shit, and also WEIRD amount of running plotlines that stay consistent througout the show.

but yeah theyre like… genuinely doing this running foot fetish gag with mort like not just in the ‘tumblr “haha is this vore” about anything to do with eating’ way but like Really. they really go there and they go for it hard and in every fucking episode. and yeah there is a running thing with the villain having a cockroach as his friend and its like constantly Heavily implied theyre a couple like someone on the madagascar wiki felt the need to point that out

and i cant tell if its like a homophobic joke or just more batshit stupid or probably just both, actually theres a lot of gay jokes its uncomfortable

and also there was an episode that was like an analogy for gun control immediately followed by an episode that was definitely referencing trump and the wall which was REALLY uncomfortable, so like yeah theyre really milking this whole madagascar thing in weird ways

☕ Cinnamon Chai Mocha Spell ☕️

A perfect tea spell for the fall season! This recipe can be used to attract prosperity. It can also promote inner reflection and grounding

In a pan heat up a cup of whole milk and 2-3 tablespoons melting chocolate. Once heated and stirred together, pour into a mug with a chai tea bag or loose chai tea in a strainer. Add a teaspoon of honey and shake cinnamon over the top to finish it off.

Bonus: put the contents in a milk frother and give in a soft foamy texture!

🥛 Healing milk bath 🥛

Relax and wash away the negativity in this softening, minty milk bath! If you have any aches or pains then the mint should be able to relax your body a little bit as well!

🥛  What you need  🥛
- 1 cup whole milk (or milk alternative - soy would be next best)
- 2-3 drops of peppermint essential oil
- a few fresh mint leaves (optional)
- Unscented liquid bubble bath (optional)
- Mint tea (optional)

🥛  Method  🥛

If you’re using bubble bath then add this first, then add your milk and your peppermint oil. When your bath has run you can sprinkle a few fresh mint leaves over the top for added minty goodness!

Stay in the bath for as long as you want to, think about washing away what you need healing while you bathe. If you have tea then absolutely think of your intent while you drink it as well!

Happy bathing  🥛

I want to share my super-quick protein mug cake dinner with you!

You’ll need:

  • 1 cat (or more)*
  • 1 banana, mashed (I never wait for them to fully ripe, but you can)
  • 1 whole egg
  • 2 tbsp milk (I use soy/coconut/almond, whatever I have)
  • 1 scoop (25g) protein powder (I use whey, vanilla flavoured, doesn’t get gummy texture)
  • 1 tbsp chia seed
  • 1 tsp cocoa powder (or skip, I don’t wanna tell you how to live your life, this is just what I do)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • cinnamon, vanilla/chocolate extract

Mix everything together, pour into a BIG greased mug and microwave for 2,5 minutes (put the mug on a paper towel just in case it overflows - easier cleaning).

And what’s that squishy yellow stuff on top? My mom’s homemade pear jam.


*Chef’s note: you can do it without cat(s), but it won’t be as tasty.
