Listen up guys Im not really a big technology guy but we got a brand new HD TV today! YAYYYY for us it’s a se39uy04 model, and… I must say its pretty darn good How good? well its absolutely beast of a tv to be honest, we used to have this old big-box type of tv which was fine…but now they have gotten so cheap that we couldnt resist in buying one, i know i know… How did I ended up buying it? well my best friend gave me this seiki tv review website and thats how i choose our tv But this TV is so awesome, YOU MUST GET THE SEIKI U-VISION CABLE FOR IT TO UPSCALE. blu-rays from red box get upscaled to 4k , my video games get upscaled to 1080p at 60hz. amazon prime tv is still 1080p going through my ps3. very little motion blur considering the price and the size and the upscaling. very bright, hue contrast are overly adjustable, i found that i had to turn the sharpness almost all the way down because it was such a sharp image. speakers are crap so you’ll have to have a stereo. i connected it to my mac and it did not upscale, but the mac outputs in 1080p, now i need to get a ps4 and upgrade my games.
We’re not talking about hearts doodled on a notebook or giant stuffed teddy bears. We’re not even talking about a dozen red roses.
We’re talking about real, unconditional love.
This kind of love doesn’t have to be between a girl and a guy – this is also a kind of love found between parent and child. This kind of love makes the greatest friendships what they are.
I’ll admit to you here and now that I don’t have a clue what love in a relationship feels like; 99% of teenagers have no idea. However, I do know this form of love in friendship. It’s a love that is unbreakable under any circumstances.
That was a lot at once. Bear with me here.
In youth group, we are watching a video series by John Piper, a Baptist minister from Minnesota. He lives by the prophecy that “God is most satisfied in me when I am most satisfied in Him,” which I think is an awesome quote by which to live.
The look on Piper’s face when he preaches shows the kind of love I’m talking about.
In one of the videos we watched, Piper talked about how our culture views “love.”
In the world today, loving someone is very much the same thing as idolizing him or her; as making much of him or her.
We build each other up. We compliment each other. “Oh, you’re so pretty. You’re so talented. I love you, I love you, I love you.”
Complimenting is fine and good, but if the feeling acquired when having received a compliment is the same as the feeling of being loved; Houston, we have a problem.
We get so caught up in making so much of ourselves that we make nothing of God. What we should do instead is to make so much of God that we cannot make anything of ourselves.
John Piper brings up true moments of wonder – moments that make us go “Wow.”
Majestic waterfalls, canyons, mountains, oceans. All things God has created.
Love is dying for someone else’s sins. Love is putting all of your faith in Him alone. Love is having strong hope in The Lord, even when it seems life couldn’t be worse. Love is not making much of someone.
This is my first post in over a week. A week!
This week has been so stressful. As per every other week of my life.
And I really am sorry for complaining.
I just sometimes feel like I have to pencil breathing into my schedule.
Then, when I have time to do such things as blog, I just want to sit and be still.
I’ve even considered not blogging any more because it kiiiind of stresses me out
with the whole only 10-or-so hours of daylight thing and me being busy most of that time;
BUUUUT I really do enjoy having this as an outlet, and my (few) readers are so supportive,
I just can’t give it up.
That being said, however, you’ll probably be hearing less from me.
More than once a week, but I just can’t stress about the blog. Ain’t nobody got time for that.
If I have recipes and pretty pictures, I’ll show ‘em to ‘ya.
Have you ever had it?
Best thing of my life. At the moment. Because, you know, these things change.
No but srsly I’ve been browning butter like no one’s business.
I mean, hey, if you’re melting butter you might as well go ahead and brown it, right?
All you do is cut the butter into small pieces and melt it over medium-low heat for 5 or so minutes,
stirring occasionally, until the butter smells nutty and there are little brown bits at the bottom of the saucepan.
You can put it in place of regular ‘ole melted butter in many recipes – sweet or savory.
I’ve been using it in broccoli, fish, sweet potatoes, and these cookies.
Nuttier, more flavorful butter. It’s such a good thing.
Speaking of these cookies, you need them, too.
This recipe is based on my FAVORITE much-acclaimed cookie recipe,
and if that’s not enough, I went and stuffed some chopped Snickers bars in there.
Even though Snickers don’t really qualify as “real food,”
I was making these cookies for teenagers. And as much as I’d like them to,
teenagers don’t care one bit about eating real food.
And sometimes, you just have to please the crowd.
And I think these things were pretty crowd-pleasing.
But don’t ask me. I only ate seven.
Brown Butter Snickers Cookies
adapted from White Chocolate Pretzel Cookies
yields 30-40 cookies, depending on size
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
10 tablespoons (half a cup/one stick, plus 2 tablespoons) unsalted butter, divided
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 egg yolk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 snickers bars, coarsely chopped
1. Brown the butter: cut 5 tablespoons of butter into small pieces and place in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Keeping a watchful eye and whisking every so often, brown the butter for 5-7 minutes, or until amber-colored bits appear at the bottom of the saucepan. It will smell nutty and de-lish.
2. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Beat sugars and remaining 5 tablespoons room-temperature butter in another bowl. Once combined, beat in brown butter, eggs, and vanilla extract. Slowly fold the butter-sugar mixture into the dry ingredients. Fold in snickers.
3. Cover the bowl and chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours (24 is best!). Preheat the oven to 350. Roll dough into 1-2″ balls and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until slightly browned. Cool slightly before serving.
Mmm. It’s good to be back.
