Kyraryker’s quotes

"She thought it over, but couldn’t see any immediate loopholes other than the threat of her inner slut emerging, and she could darned well control that little bitch."— Susan Elizabeth Phillips

Task the Sixth: The Hanukkah


- Make a traditional Hanukkah food like doughnuts or potato latkes. Post a picture, or tell us how they turned out!


I, obviously, went the doughnut route :)


Hanukkah Bimuelo Fritters 




Trying to make cute little ball shapes quickly went out the window for me, especially when I burnt myself (when I pulled the spoon out, I fumbled it, and when I went to catch it, I grabbed the part that had sunk into the hot oil. I was not pleased. 



I'm a baked, not fried, kind of gal. I think I didn't have the oil hot enough at first and the first couple came out more soft instead of the nice crispy shell.



I was a little disappointed in how, ummm, alien splat? they were turning out to look and the bf helpfully, said they had nice "wing" handles to hold onto for dipping purposes :/




The recipe provides a chocolate sauce one, a very sweet one the bf enjoyed, but I put warmed honey on mine. 

They were a great late night snack :)
