I've checked the bloggers I follow and did some GameSpot Blog searches and here's the GameSpotters that have done some Holiday blogging to spread the cheer. A shoutout goes to: Hylian-Jedi, benleslie5, chicknfeet, Cthulad, Falcon084, ShadowofSonic, Gamer1985, and SonicHomeboy.
My plans this year includes photography once the weather clears up. Nightscape and timelapses is one of the areas I'm trying to get better at. Other than that, my gaming line-up is quite hefty. I put a list of about 50 games based on whether or not I've played them already, and how long it takes to finish the single player. If I'm not trying to finish the single player for a game I'll be playing League of Legends (Summoner Calithrae) and a maybe a little Black Ops 2. I'll defintiely tweet which games I'll be playing and I'm sureRaptr will also spill these details.
I did get asked if I'll be cooking this holiday and I've been trying to figure out how to make an apple cake that I had years ago. The place that sold this cake no longer is in business and this holiday I've been wanting this cake that competes against the famous old fashioned Apple Pie. You all know, cake isn;t a lie when it competes against an apple pie, right? If I had to compare the cake to something we all have tried, I'd say it's almost like a carrot cake with the cream cheese frosting. Some would consider it's like crumb cake but it's far from it. There might be lots of trial and error to be made so maybe I'll record a video if it, We'll see.
Lastly, a big shoutout to GameSpotters! Reading your comments, forum posts, and blogs is a true inspiration. Your passion and knowledge of gaming just goes to show that you make this site such a fun place to hang out.
I mention a 'happy holidays' in my last blog, but it's buried under other nonsense :) have a good one!
something on the order of Apple Pan Dowdy?
my grandma used to make that - cinnamon, brown sugar and molasses with a biscuitty topping
best with green apples - granny smiths.
Lots of people do regular Christmas blogs so mine was on Yalda the holiday which is probably the origin of Christmas day falling on 25 December and also giving Merry Christmas wishes in as many languages as I knew....or was able to post on Gamespot.
Thanks for the add, Jody!
If you can't manage to find the recipe for the apple cake, the next best thing to do is go looking in grocery stores and see if Betty Crocker, Pillsbury or Duncan Hines make any sort of apple cake that you can buy and make from the box. I know it isn't 'real' baking, but heck, people don't know the names of those companies for nothing!
I remember a while ago I saw some cherry cake that looked good. It almost makes me want to pick up a box and do some very manly baking. With an apron and mitts and everything. Yeah, I said an apron!
Try not to get too caught up in recording everything you're doing during your time off - try to enjoy the time off, and live lol. Have fun with the photography and gaming. Happy Holidays!
I hope you have a great christmas jody :)Wish I could help you cook, I love cooking. Although I don't get to do that much.I've got under my belt (school wise) 2 years of home economics, 3 1/2 years of pro start. If only I continued I'd probably be finished with culinary art school by now. :P
Happy Holidays Jody!
Do you know what presents you are getting this year? A new Camera maybe?? Can wait to see some of your photos you take over the holidays.
I look forward to your snaps. We're already in cooking mode for the holidays, so I'd better go check the oven again. Have a great Christmas!
