Anime Reccomendation (2013-2014)

mmn.. if i have to recommend what anime/manga to watch for the latter part last year up to current (2013-2014) and the current season, it would be the following:

Ace of Diamond - baseball anime, the manga currently has 40 volumes already, ahhn, this one is awesomesauce, but maybe it's just me because i'm addicted to sports manga/anime, another plus is that it's not full of super power like KnB

Gin No Saji - from the author of Full Metal Alchemist, i can't explain how awesome this manga is, i was just sucked by its storyline and characters! who would know that a story about agricultural school life would be that interesting? this one proved it!

- anime just started this season~ this one is a good sports anime/manga too~ i'm not really a fan of volleyball, but this one is interesting and a lot more realistic than KnB~

Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei - i recommend the light novel or the manga of this if you want to know the story immediately, because the anime would be a pain to wait for, but maybe the sfx and action scene would even the wait out~ but it's one awesome storyline!! i can't wait of how it'll end!

Golden Time - a romcom shojo anime for a change~ college setting romance anime with an amnesiac guy and a rich girl

Buddy Complex - honestly, if it's meccha anime, i got to watch it, no questions asked, i have to watch it. that how i'm into meccha i am~ plus it's SUNRISE! more or less the mechanism of the mecchas are patterned to Pacific Rim.

Log Horizon - plotline almost similar with SAO, so if you can't get enough of SAO, be sure to check it out!

Baby Steps - another sports anime/manga (yes, i am really into sports anime! ugh, they are my drug!) it's about tennis, very much like Prince of Tennis, but this one is a LOT more realistic because there's no special moves involved, plus it shows that hard work and determination can really pay off!

hmmn, sports anime is certainly 'in' this year~ haii~ perhaps that's it~ tata~

BROWNIES~!! nom nom nom

i've been so into baking lately~ and i made sure that every week i have something to bake.. for this week i baked a batch of brownies~! i actually baked one before but that one is where i used a recipe using cocoa powder, this one is made using semi-sweet chocolate chips.

this is the original recipe from tasty kitchen

  • 1-½ cup Flour
  • ½ teaspoons Baking Soda
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • ⅔ cups Butter
  • 1-½ cup Granulated Sugar (i used just a cup here, since i don't want it to be super sweet)
  • 4 Tablespoons Water
  • 2 packages Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips (12 Ounce Packages) (here i used 2 cups for the batter and 1 cup for the top part)
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 4 whole Eggs
  • 1 cup Chopped Walnuts (optional)
Preparation Instructions:

  • Preheat oven to 325F.
  • Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a small bowl and mix to combine. In a large saucepan, melt the butter with the sugar and water. Bring just to a boil and remove from heat. Stir in one package of the chocolate chips and the vanilla extract. Whisk in the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Slowly blend in the flour mixture, and then add the remaining package of chocolate chips and the chopped nuts.
  • Pour into a greased 9×13″ pan* and bake for 30-40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Be careful not to over-bake, and make sure that your toothpick is coated with uncooked batter and not melted chocolate chips if you’re going to continue baking longer. Let cool at least 2 hours before serving.
  • Note: To make a half-batch, use a greased 9×9″ square pan and bake for 25-35 minutes.

i just put some maple syrup on the top picture for photo purposes~

it tastes actually quite yummy~!!!! though i cooked mine for about 1 and 10 mins because at 40 mins. my brownie still has a lot of batter clinging on the toothpick i'm pricking into, so i cooked it longer.. :|| anyways maybe it's with the pan i'm using? i'm using a 9"x12"glass pan, so maybe it has to do something with that... and another, since the chocolate mix is still hot, when i pour the other choco chips it just melt, so i didn't get the effect of choco chips bit into the brownies(next time, i'll let it cool for a bit!)....but anyways~~after being chilled for 5 hrs. it tastes so good!! so chewy~, like how brownies should be! and it's not that sweet, perfect for my taste buds~~ omnomnomnom :*
