51/366 – Frostbite

I feel like I need to apologize for posting this, ha.

I had no other ideas, and was feeling quite lazy, so naturally I took a picture of my badly frostbitten toes. I froze them a month ago or so, and they are not looking any better. But as the saying goes, “frostbite in January, amputation in July” so I will just have to wait and see.

50/366 – Herd

I had the urge to spend a while in photoshop for today’s picture. So I set my mind on an image that would require multiple shots combined into one. I only had one giraffe, and moved him over and over taking pictures as I went with my camera on a tripod. I then brought them all in to photoshop to combine them. After tweaking the colors a bit, I must say I am very happy with the result!

Oh, and I have decided to bring my logo back, so you will be seeing that from now on.

Cake in a mug (recipe)

Yesterday my 366 was a picture of cake in a mug that I made for me and my parents. I had some people ask about the recipe, so here it is!

These are super easy to make, and takes about 5 minutes at the most. And, they are delicious. But the best part: it makes two, perfectly portioned pieces of cake. I generally am just cooking for myself so making a whole cake is ridiculous. I usually top them with chocolate syrup and sometimes with a scoop of ice cream; they make for a deliciously rich dessert.

Ingredients:
5 tbs all-purpose flour
5 tbs granulated sugar
2 tbs cocoa powder
a pinch of salt
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 large egg
4 tbs milk
1 tbs melted butter
4 tbs vegetable oil
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
2 microwave safe mugs

Mix the dry ingredients in one of the microwave safe mugs. In a small bowl lightly beat the egg and add in the other wet ingredients, mixing well. Add in the dry mixture, and mix well until fully combined. Pour half the batter in each mug. One at a time, microwave the mugs on high for around a minute. The cake will still look gooey on top, but if you don’t think it is quite done put it back in the microwave for 15 seconds or so. Let cool for a bit, and dig in!

 

45/366 – Analogue Sunrise winter

It had been quite a while since I had spread any Analogue Sunrise stickers, and I felt like Analogue Sunrise needed to get out and experience what little snow we have 🙂

I think I bent the polaroid when I was tossing it in my bag which is part of why it didn’t develop all the way. Plus it was cold which doesn’t help.
