I decided to fire up the ice cream maker again this weekend, this time with chocolate. I find most chocolate ice creams underwhelming. They usually taste malty rather than like eating a piece of chocolate. Since this is my first take on chocolate I won’t be doing anything too drastic with the basic recipe. I got the recipe for the base from my friend at work and decided to only change the the type sugar used. I am going with brown sugar rather than white in hopes of adding slightly more complexity. I call this recipe “triple chocolate” because I used three different types of chocolate in it: Ghirardelli chips for the base, Saco chocolate chunks and brownie pieces for the mix-ins.
A few days ago one of my friends read this blog and asked me if all I did all day was eat ice cream and watch Star Wars. Man, wouldn’t that be the life? Sadly, while this isn’t how I spend most of my time, I decided to write a new post that will not help me with his perception of my free time. Welcome to my homemade vanilla ice cream taste test.
Aliens and stuff!!
I wasn’t sure what to expect when I started to watch Syfy’s miniseries Children’s End. In fact I made it a point to go in completely blind and open minded. I was in the mood for more science fiction after watching the first four episodes of The Expanse and Syfy was heavily promoting it, so why not? It helped that it is based on Arthur C. Clarke’s novel of the same name. While I haven’t read any of his works, I am a fan of Kubrick’s adaptation of 2001: A Space Odyssey.
Space and stuff!
I recently started watching Syfy networks Dark Matter and after losing interest around the 5th episode, it became time to add a new science fiction show into the rotation. I read about The Expanse a few months ago and I remember a substantial amount of hype behind it. A friend of mine told me it was probably his most anticipated show, so after the usual fifteen minutes of searching Neflix, I downloaded the Syfy app onto my Xbox One and gave it a go. I ended up watching the first two episodes so this review will cover both.
