Abel got a little too excited to light something on fire. Also another triple prompt picture starring these guys.
Yeah, not the biggest fan of avocado. It feels like you’re biting into a candle and kinda tastes like grass clippings mixed with soap. Or maybe it was just the ones we bought. Either way, it is one high maintenance fruit-vegetable. Guacamole, on the other hand, I can roll with. Just as long as someone… Continue reading Avocados: A Step-by-Step Guide
Where’s this all going? Also, wishing you all a Happy Independence Day! Go out there and feel patriotic, I suppose. Have a cook out, watch some fireworks, and maybe pop in the movie Independence Day. Because is there really any other better movie to see today? And don’t say the sequel that should have never existed.… Continue reading Sibling Conversation
A while ago, I did a comic about attempting to bake with Nutella, and how the cupcakes basically imploded into a big, sticky mess. Admittedly, I was working without an actual recipe, hence the cupcake horror I unleashed in the oven. This time, I found a recipe whilst scrolling through YouTube for Nutella cupcakes.

Sidenote: Yes, I did make brownies this week. And yes, I made a mess. Not my fault cocoa powder and flour… Continue reading Walrus Studies: Baker Walrus
Because sometimes, you just want some brownies. And yes, they were delicious. And yes, they have vanished within a matter of days.
A few notes on baking cupcakes: 1. Flour is extremely important to baking. Too much can result in some very dense cupcakes. Too little can result in exploding cupcakes. See picture for details. 2. Baking soda – also very important to baking, obviously. Be careful how much you add in, or else your cupcakes may just… Continue reading Cupcake Fail
One of my favorite/least favorite things to work with when I’m cooking are onions. I love the taste of onions, and I think that they are the bacon of the vegetable world in that they improve the flavor of a lot of foods. In essence, onions are great to cook and eat. However, I also… Continue reading Onions
