Summer Spareribs – Dr. Pepper Marinade

No Comments

Well, summer’s here, and the time is right for fighting in the street boy. The question is posed as to what a poor boy can do. I postulate that instead of fighting he could make some decent spareribs with naught more than an oven and 4-24 hours. Remember, always read the entire recipe before starting and come up with a plan of attack.

What you’ll need:

Dishes

  • Baking dish
  • Saucepan

Food Stuffs

  • Pork Spareribs
  • Enough Dr. Pepper to cover them (2 Liters should be good)
  • 1C. Water
  • 1/4 C. Salt
  • 1/2 C. & 1 t. Chili powder (May need more depending on the amount of spareribs.)
  • 1 T. Oil (Vegetable, Canola, Peanut, etc.)
  • 1/2 C. Sweet Onion (Finely Chopped)
  • 5 Garlic Cloves (Minced)
  • 1/2 C. Ketchup
  • 2 T. Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 T. Apple Cider Vinegar

To start out put your spareribs in the baking dish you have. Then add the salt and pour Dr. Pepper in until you’ve covered the ribs. Don’t worry about being to precise about covering them because it is likely that they will float. Just ensure that the Dr. Pepper is at a level higher than they were before you started pouring and that you have at least 1/2 C. left for the sauce. Then, cover, and place in the fridge for a minimum of 2 hours. I would suggest overnight though.

Too good to be bad

The eggs your preacher warned you about…

No Comments

Listen up my friends! It has been a while since I posted and I apologize for that.

But, I know you want more eggs in your life and you want those eggs to be naughty. Like the devil himself.

First you’re going to need something to boil your eggs in, something to mash the yolks up with, and some ingredients…

Per every three eggs you boil you’ll need:

2 T. Mayonaise

1 t. Mustard

1/8 t. Salt

Paprika to taste

but you can also have one of the following:

1/2 t. Sweet Gherkin Pickles (finely chopped)

1/2 t. Bacon (crispy, finely chopped)

1/4 t. White Wine Vinegar

(or any other slight flavor you’d like to add).

 

Perfect Boil

For the next part you need to boil your eggs. This is how:

Bar Art: Something I do.

No Comments

I, like many burgeoning hipsters, have a messenger bag. Inside this bag I keep small canvases and acrylic paint pens amongst other things. When I find myself at a bar hanging out I end up painting on these canvases whatever comes to mind. This post is simply a photoset of a few of these paintings. I felt I haven’t been giving enough attention to my site.

Paint Nite – My Painting and a Review

No Comments

Paint Nite

What I did for a social art event titled “Paint Nite” in which people come to paint an already painted picture, drink, and be social. It’s definitely not for those who consider themselves trained to some level in art. I felt slightly offended that it was set up to be a ‘step-by-step’ painting experience. Yet for the group of friends or couple who are just looking for something new and creative to do this is a perfectly safe option.

You Can’t Rush Good Pizza

No Comments

 

Anyone who knows something about anything is sure to tell you that you can’t rush good pizza. This is probably the most absolute rule in the whole of the universe. But don’t fret because we’ve got plenty of time and I’ve been making pizza for a decent portion of my short life.

Things you may want:

A pizza stone

A pizza cutter

some olive oil

an oven

perhaps an oven mit.

There are two stages to making a good pizza. First you make the crust and then you tackle the toppings.

To make the crust you’ll need these ingredients:

  • 1 packet of Active Dry Yeast (about 2 1/4 t.)
  • 1 t. of Sugar
  • 1 t. of Salt
  • 2 T. of Vegetable Oil
  • 1 C. Warm water
  • 2 1/2 C. Flour (omit salt if using ‘self rising flour)

First get a small bowl and put your warm water into it. Take the yeast you have set aside and dissolve it into the warm water. Read more

Why you should play Destiny

No Comments

Have you ever had a dream where the rules of physics obeyed your every whim and that you were a force to be reckoned with? As you dreamt did you find yourself exploring places you wouldn’t normally dare to go? But as you flexed the powers that your subconscious had granted did you traipse ever deeper into a mystery? It’s that kind of dream from which you can’t wake. Where it’s not quite jarring enough to pull you from the world you’re in but intriguing enough you don’t want to be pulled. That is exactly how Destiny, the upcoming game from Bungie, felt as I played the first look alpha on Sony’s Playstation 4 (PS4). I was trapped, sucked into a world that felt so completely right, but I couldn’t do more than ineffectually scratch at the surface of a mystery that had permeated the entire world. Read more
