Just finished off a can of this great (albeit expensive) hot cocoa and decided to reverse engineer the recipe…
Turns out it’s just two ingredients: cocoa and powdered sugar (great for the lactose intolerants). Can’t really mess that up. And yeah alright, most of the world has hopefully realized that hot cocoa is pretty damn simple, but if not…
Dark Hot Cocoa recipe for the, ahem, majority of us lactose intolerant folk.
- 30% (by weight) cocoa (Hershey’s cocoa or generic works fine) (Example: 90 grams)
- 70% (by weight) powdered sugar (Example: 210 grams)
- Mix thoroughly in a ziplock bag (Example yields 300 grams for those that cannot add two numbers).
- Change proportions to adjust dark chocolate-ness.
- Yeah, these ingredients cost next to nothing.
STEPS TO GLORY: Warm up an 8oz-12oz glass (13oz is just too much, c’mon) of milk (soy milk, almond milk, “regular” milk… others are untested). Warming can be done via microwave or via the stove if that’s your style. Mix in 4 Tbsps of the above mixture. Cocoa should sort of melt into the milk. Toughest recipe you’ve seen this year, I know.
These are my predictions for changes to the majority of household bathrooms in the US. Yep, I have not posted in over a year, and this indeed is what I’m starting off new posts with.
In my lifetime:
- Bidets within homes in the US
- Faucets and shower heads with user preferences
- Automatic faucets in bathrooms (and kitchens)
- In home hand air dryers
- Daily body tracking tool usage is common place (not just for diabetics and fitness fanatics)
Beyond my lifetime:
- Non-mint toothpaste taking hold of a significant % of the US market (link to article about popularity of mint)
- Replaceable organic teeth grown exactly to specification at a cheap price (<$1000)
- Water conservation plumbing for recycling non-potable in-home water
Great to see everyone over the break… I brought this site up since I haven’t updated in forever. So as for this blog, I’m going to try to trend towards something new for a change… I’m going to aim to post more content (it’s plausible, right?) with useful things — for instance, trends I see, technology that’s promising, maybe even products I enjoy. We’ll see.
and as a taste, here is a sweet (but not really short) documentary on statistics:
I will be updating this site to accommodate a interesting “feed” (links essentially) items I’m reading which will run parallel to the posts on this blog. I’m pretty sure wordpress can handle this, but it will require a redesign. We’ll see how it turns out. It will be structured something like, “short blog (slog)”, “long blog (blog),” and “permanent blog (plog).”
In addition I will be making bacon chocolate chip cookies soon. Mmmmm…
I’ve posted instructions on how to use cURL to auto-login to Georgia Tech’s wireless network LAWN. This supplements (well, supersedes for most) the current instructions available on the lawn.gatech.edu page itself.
Hope this helps somebody who is slightly perturbed each time they login to LAWN.
By Vonnegut I’ll be reading (or have read):
A Man Without a Country
Breakfast of Champions
Combined with research activities, grading and teaching, traveling, cooking etc… it should be a well rounded summer.
