I’ve been getting a few questions in regards to humanity in light of recent events in Boston.
I created the stepping stones for life. Everything else— the Pokemon, the people, the trees, the rivers, the stones— all came about as a result. I had no hand in “stupid” people.
Everyone inevitably makes bad decisions in their life. Sometimes people make decisions that hurt others.
This, I believe, does not mean that people are bad. I believe people as a whole are good. History is riddled with mistakes and pain. However, when you see the horrible news, when you see the gruesome coverage of the suffering and destruction, there are ALWAYS more people helping. One person may have set a bomb, but there are hundreds who rush to help.
People do not run away from others in need. I don’t think thats very stupid at all.
Hello, Arceus! I tried out the recipe to your Cheri Berry poffins the other day. They turned out delicious, and I would definitely make them again -- perhaps I'll even sneak in my own additions! But I noticed that my poffins ended up quite large, too. How many pieces was one batch of dough originally intended to make?
Poffins should be whatever size you want, but they’re normally a little bigger than the palm of your hand.
Or was it an Ursaring paw…? Paw… palm…? Oh well.
The recipe should yeild about 12 poffins, if I’m not mistaken…
When you’re a diety that has existed for eons, one tends to collect clutter and lose track of time.
On top of that It seems I’ve had some trouble with my computer. Palkia’s been mindlessly practicing Aqua Tail shouting things along the lines of “MY SECONDARY TYPING GOES VASTLY UNAPPRECIATED” and all that frustration has sloshed water over the entire place.
For my unfortunate computer… it was super effective.
I do have a small notepad. I suppose I could draw some things here and there.
p.s. askbox and submit are locked until further notice. I have ridiculous backlog it seems.
So you're like a deity around here, huh... well, it does please me said deity's a culinary genius! Please, introduce me to your best delicacy! ♥
I have a secret for frosting.
Whisk together 1 cup of milk with 5 tablespoons of flour and boil it over a stove until the mixture is thick. Whisk it again. Then wait for it to cool completely! After it’s cool, stir in one tablespoon of Vanillish extract. Don’t eat it. It’ll be gross.
In a separate bowl, whip one cup of sugar with one cup of soft butter. It should be thick and fluffy like Altaria down.
Add your vanilla mixture into the sugar/butter mixture and whip it until it looks like fresh whipped cream. 45 seconds of beating on high should do the trick!
Voila! You have a thick, buttery frosting with a lovely silky texture. It’s my favorite for frosting cakes. Good luck!
(( OOC Vadum: Hey guys! I’m so very sorry for the lack of updates on my part, school has pretty much sucked me of any free time! I have this blog on my mind constantly, and I hope to be able to spare some time for it soon, but right now it’s just not possible. That said, I also wanted to send anyone, as well as anyone with friends, family, and so on, affected by Hurricane Sandy my wishes for a speedy recovery. If you’re interested in supporting relief, the Red Cross is just one of the places you can donate money towards that. Thanks, guys! ))
Some requested a recipe for the Old Gateau! It’s a simple recipe, but… in my humble godly opinion, rather boring. So, I adapted an alternative recipe to keep that distinctive Old Gateau flavor with some gourmet flair! It should also be considerably tastier.
This recipe is for Champion-level bakers, but if you’re looking for a challenge (as most young trainers are) try it out! Everyone improves with practice.
((OOC: Fluffywhite: Hiya! It’s the original artist/admin of Ask Arceus here to tell you that I have an art-exclusive blog now for your viewing pleasure. Link is above. Just in case anyone still remembers who I am!))
I under stand most of the other berries (pecha = peach, nanab = bananas,) but what should I use for oran berries in your recipes? Oran berries sound like oranges, but they look like a blueberries, which confuses me.
In your markets, a good substitute for Oran berries would be oranges. Oran berries are much the same as oranges are, just smaller and blue. They even have the same waxy peel.
