Alright, for all you popcorn connoisseurs out there; I have a simple question. In order to get your popcorn to prime condition for nomming, how long do you cook it in your microwave/oven/cauldron/etc.? Vote in the poll and post below! I personally use 1:41 minutes most of the time. 1:40 generally cooks popcorn well without leaving a lot of kernels or burning it, but I tend to cook popcorn at night and I don't want to wake everyone else up with the beeping of the microwave, so I add another second so I can stop the microwave early without losing time.
For better or for worse, if there has been one common complaint in regards to the IDW series of comics based on the "Friendship is Magic" franchise it has been the writing of comic author Katie Cook. Is this justified? Well, at first it would've been hard for me to say. For me personally, her best work was the "Reflections" arc which I do recognize is a bit divisive between those who have read it. At the same time I share in the belief that while "The Good, The Bad, and The Ponies" had some good elements here and there the overall package was lacking somewhat when compared to some of Cook's other works; or even "Manehatten Mysteries," which was written by a different author. With the release of the "Revenge of Everfree" arc I had been considering the question of Katie Cook's recent efforts. Personally, I have been fond of the vast majority of her work; Reflections, Chrysalis, the Big Mac & Shining Armor/Cadence arcs, and even the Micro & Friends Forever issues she contributed to. However, "The Good, The Bad, and The Ponies" arc had plenty of issues and while the Everfree arc is improved from the previous one; some have noted various issues with it. I was giving some thought to all of this when I came upon this video from one of my favorites in the MLP analyst community. Admittedly I still need to give some of the earlier arcs a second or third read because as much as I did love the "Revenge of Queen Chrysalis" arc, he points out a few issues here and there. For me, it will be worth to put it through a second reading as a refreshed perspective can be quite eye-opening. He points out that in his own view Cook's strengths lie in the issues that feature a more SoL angle; as opposed to the larger adventure-style stories. He may have a point there, and it was one that I never considered. So, what do you think? Has the writing of Katie Cook suffered as of late? Has it improved? Or has there really been no change, and her strengths just aren't in the 'antagonist-centered' arcs that we have had as of late?
I don't consider myself a superb chef or anything, but I do enjoy "experimenting" in the kitchen. Sometimes I can make things that are not too tasty , and sometimes I make things so delicious, I can't believe I even cooked them when I found out my food is good, I stick to my recipe and convert it into a signature dish of mine. This time I'm gonna introduce you my "cheese" mashed potatoes (because I couldn't think of a better name for it). However, my signature dishes are very few, I'm a "specific" type of cook TBH. I can assure you it has potatoes in it, even if it looks like lasagna xD. Watcha think? :3 yay or nay?
So the little thingie under my avatar was a muffin for a while, now it's a cupcake...I'm wondering about people's MLP inspired culinary creations? Cupcakes are easy enough because they are already crazy bright colors and cute, but muffins would be more of a challenge. In addition, what flavor to make the muffin? Oatmeal or Bran for horses or something fruity? I thought about cooking with Dandelion too...but I end up feeding it all to my rabbit. So, who has done some awesome MLP recipes or has good ideas for one?
