So… by now, every one knows of the Charlie Sheen-shaming career flame-out of Paul Christoforo. But I can’t help throwing my body on the dog-pile… two cents in.     So… for those lacking context (and too lazy to read the full thread), this is the reference: From: Mike Krahulik To: Ocean Marketing I am […]

Pie-day

Posted: 30th December 2011 by affehaus in food stuffs, review

Today’s pie: apple Crust was, for reasons unknown to me, exceptional.  It had a rich flavor that stimulated the palate, and the texture of the pastry-bit was perfect, achieving that holy-grail of flaky, yet tender.  Noms The only other circumstance of note was that this was a pie not constrained by the usual compliment of […]

while looking for something completely unrelated. via this bloggy-thing, the name of which I’m unclear on. But the diagram?  That is totally the coincident spot that I am currently not in.  Funny.

Today’s pie: pumpkin, experimental Crust was good; had a nice flavor, but it wasn’t as flaky as the Pie Master’s crust usually is… more pliant than flaky. This may be a result of the crust being pre-baked (mod. 1), in an effort to prevent saturation from the filling. So, towards that end, the measure was […]

… sort of thing. [update]– it’s been brought to my attention that Scarlet Ribbons has become something of an obscure song, and many may not be aware of its association with Christmas; no shame there– as cited, I only became aware of the song relatively recently. Anyway… Scarlet Ribbons. It’s associated with Christmas. ______________________________________________ I […]
