More info is at the Affsdiary page, which I strongly, strongly urge you to read.

My website does not require the kind of information that the data-mining scam is requiring for the supposed ‘update.’ I will never require that depth of information from anyone. The only thing you need to comment in this site is a username and email, or a WordPress/Gravatar ID, since you can log in to comment using either. We don’t ask for personal information, we don’t want it and don’t give it to us.

(When the next arc starts, I am likely to make another toon because of rumors that it’ll center around Section 31.) Anyway, the current event that’s ongoing is the Mirror Universe Invasion; and we finished it on most of our toons today. Continue reading

Delicious treats

Delicious treats

I promised to make Rhys apple muffins for Father’s Day (it’s in September, here in Australia) but I missed it by a day because that Sunday was eaten up by errands. I made these on the same day as the Sour Cream Chocolate Cake so you see the unfrosted cake sitting in the background at in one of the photos.

Pop Soda Sticky Chicken

This chicken recipe uses a can of cola, orange soda, or Mountain Dew as a base. I’ve also used this as a recipe base for a slow cooker pork roast (adjusting the amount of ingredients to suit.)  This was a huge hit with the kids and adults alike.
