Single Malt Space Shuttle

I believe that the good things in life should be combined, no matter how unlikely the combination may seem. I'll explain this inside, and I suggest you make the jump, not only for amateur-level philosophy, but also for more pictures of this delicious combo!

Low-Carb Bread of Perpetual Crispiness

Crisp bread is a great tasting- and healthy alternative to normal bread. It has some additional advantages, like increased expiration date and being easy to store. And with the low-carb diet that's so popular these days, I can confirm that the unassuming but dangerous carbohydrates are barely present in this recipe.

Read on for recipe, how to, several pictures and randomness on the low-carb lifestyle, as well as a bold statement...

Figure Friday: Micro Machines

No action figure this Friday. Instead we'll take a look at the tiny vehicles known as Micro Machines.
I'll admit right away that I don't know a whole lot about Micro Machines, other than the fact that I really liked them as a kid. And as you'll see, my collecting is just as tiny as the cars and boats.
But be sure to read on for more anyway, there may be both some interesting facts, cute anecdotes and several pictures of tiny vehicles.

Black Bolt's Belicious BBQ

What? You can't write "belicious"! It's not even a word!
Well, I do like alliterations, and the b is so close to the d, it doesn't really matter. If anyone has a better adjective, let me know.

And no, I didn't throw Black Bolt on the barbecue, but he's still relevant to the story.
How to make spare ribs, shopping toys in London and various anecdotes. Read on!

Figure Friday: Hawkeye

Those who know me is fully aware that I'm a Marvel fan. In fact, by simple proximity, people will understand I appreciate the Marvel heroes. It started at the age of 6 when I read Marvel Heroes Secret Wars. The impact of this series was monumental. I'll get back to this. It escalated when I went to high school and found vintage US issues of Daredevil and X-Men at my local comic store. It peaked when I studied at university and subscribed to 20 titles monthly. I don't buy that many comics these days, but I still pick up the occasional issue or trade paperback, and I anticipate every Marvel movie.

Why is this boring biography of a random dude necessary? Because even though I'm a Marvel fan to the point where I literally wear it on my sleeve, and even though I own thousands of action figures, I have a surprisingly ordinary amount of Marvel action figures. One of them is the archer clad in purple, always far too confident and always the underdog. A decent toy of an excellent character.

Figure Friday: Ghost Rider

Figure Friday will be a weekly showcase of an action figure or a toy. I'll not give myself any restrictions to what will be a valid toy to write about, or how I will present it. It may be two pictures and one paragraph, or it can be an in-depth review. I can guarantee you something though: Anecdotes, history lessons and weird connections to something that may or may not be related to the toy.

I'm sure some readers are familiar with G.I. Joe - A Real American Hero, but the figure featured in the first Figure Friday may be an unknown. There are two reasons why such an obscure toy gets showcased here:
First and foremost, the figure lived up to its character profile, which has him as an invisible and forgettable person. It is actually considered among the more invisible and forgettable figures in the G.I. Joe toy line, but I'd like to show that maybe there's more to this figure than people realize. And secondly, it even further cemented it's legacy as an invisible character by being completely absent in my childhood collection. 

He is the pilot of the Phantom X-19 Stealth Jet, Ghostrider! Click to read more!

Toast of the Molten Heart

I will admit that I have a thing or two to learn about photography, and when I suddenly felt for a snack late last night, my camera did not want to cooperate. The pictures that follow will hopefully still show how to make this easy and quick dish. Here's my Toast of the Molten Heart.  I know this dish has many names, but all others are wrong and clearly not cool enough. 

Read on for recipe and badly lighted pictures! Not a lot of text this time, mainly pictures.

Orange Juice (with lime)

I normally don't drink juice. But it's both delicious and easy to make, it's weird that I don't make more juice. A stroke of luck left me with a bag of oranges, that I not only ended up using for juice, but also for dinner. Today is about the juice though...

Read on for recipe, more pictures and other stuff...

Also, are there anyone out there that has even the slightest knowledge about juice making, let me know, shoot me some advice and recipes!
