Merry Winterveil!

Wow! So this year was my first Winterveil spent not on the streets and man — it was amazing!!

Lots of great food, SO many cookies, and I’ve been wearing this great headband with antlers all week. It has jingle bells on it. It’s very obnoxious. I love it.

With all the chaos in the Keg, on top of visiting my brother in Silvermoon, I am a little late with this week’s update. So to make up for it, I have a Winterveil present for you all! I am going to provide three new recipes over the next three days, as well as a bonus for a new series I’m considering.

With the new year coming in just a few days, Colin taught me some of his traditions from home. He used to be head chef in the Purple Parlor in Dalaran before… well, he didn’t really want to talk about what happened. But he was kind enough to show me his tricks that he learned from his time there and his New Years traditions, and I’m excited to get to share them with you.

Love you all! As always, let me know what you think and feel free to hit me up if you have ideas or even are just lonely and want to chat. I’m available through email in the Contact tab and my twitter is @jaxkol

Meal of the Week: Happy Troll

Winterveil is really ramping up, and I gotta say, I am enjoying it immensely. I’m going to be honest, this is my very first Winterveil and I was really nervous about it. I didn’t know what to expect, I didn’t know what was coming. Big dude in a red suit knows if you’ve been bad or good? He knows everything about you? He can see into your soul and judge your sins?!

Yeah. Kinda terrifying.

But I spent some time in Silvermoon this week with my brother Vyn and his fiance. I asked him if he wanted me to make a traditional Winterveil dinner for them but he said no.

He wanted Happy Troll.

Meal of the Week: Talador Toffee

So many ways to make it unique!

So one problem with making candy is that it vanishes FAST. I swear, ever since this season started up, I’ve been cooking up a storm! Candy and cookies galore, but the hands down winner (judging by how quick it disappears and the amount of orders I get for it) has been Talador Toffee.

This recipe was brought to me from my good Draenei friend, Katychla. She tells me that when she was a girl, they made this as a reward for special occasions. It was very sweet for her to share such an important tradition with me, and I think it’s just sweet enough to share with you. 

Ready?

Better late than never!

Hey guys! Oh my Light, I thought Pilgrim’s Bounty was busy but man, that’s nothing compared to Winterveil! It’s been a lot busier than I expected and I’ve been making a ton of cookies and candy.

So very many cookies. So very much candy.

It’s made me lose a bit track of time. But no worries! There will be an update tomorrow, with Thursday back to normal. Stay warm everyone!

(Real talk, I’ve been down with pneumonia for the past week. It’s really kicked my butt. Sorry guys!!

Also, I can now be reached on Twitter @jaxkol . Hope to see you there!)

Meal of the Week: Menethil Onion Rings

Loops of ‘Licious

So if you remember back a whole week and a half, we made Green Bean Casserole. And the most important, most difficult part of that recipe was  the fried onions. Why was it difficult? Was it because of the frying? No that was surprisingly easy. Was it because of the battering? I mean, I fucked it up, but no, not at all. 

No no. The hardest part was not eating it all. Oh by the Light it was so good. And every few minutes I’d think “Oh just one more won’t hurt. There’s plenty. I have to make sure it’s not poison after all.”

And eventually, while (presumably) not poison, the fried onions became less for the recipe and more to sate your growing addiction. 

Today we’re gonna feed that addiction.

Ninth Crystal – Anniversary

The crystal crackles to life, occasionally distorted by the sound of a breeze. His voice is soft and tired-sounding.

“It’s… been a long time since I’ve done one of these. I’m not even sure why I grabbed the recorder. I guess… It’s been so long since I’ve felt that feeling. This… awful feeling of impending doom. It’s still familiar, of course, but I’ve…. ya know, I’ve felt a lot of other things lately too… Love. Peace. Joy. I guess I was starting to forget.

I guess she figured it was time to jog my memory.
