Recipe 1: Flan in a Cup Flan in a CupRecipe 1: Flan in a Cup6 years ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
Makes 4 cups of flan
1 3/4 cups of milk
5 tablespoons of sugar
a little bit of vanilla
Ingredients for the caramel sauce:
3 tablespoons of sugar
1 tablespoon of water
Tip from Najika:
Najika's special flan is made by pouring it in a teacup. Metal flan cups conduct heat and are hard to manage. Making the flan in plastic is easier and it will come out prettier!
1. Put the milk on low heat and add sugar. Stir well and when the sugar melts, stop the heat and cool for a minute. Make sure you don't let the milk boil.
2. Break the eggs in a bowl and stir well.
3. Slowly pour the milk from step 1 into the bowl from step 2 and stir. Add

who lost his best friend today. I can't move, can't speak. I crumple into myself. I never knew. He never told me anything. I saw them, heard them taunt him. They dragged him down down till that smile of his was just a ghost.
I didn't know it hurt him so much. But somehow I knew someday I would have to face this. I saw the shadows forming, the future setting itself up. I wanted to grip him, pull him close, and never let him go. He had been my best friend, the kid I couldn't think of never seeing again because I never had to. I feared the day that I would wake up and know I would never see him again.
And it came and I don't know what to do. There's nowhere to turn, no one to call, and I wonder if this hollowness will be there forever.

Drive Safe"H-Hey, um, President Vanellope?" Swizzle stammered, approaching the young president.Drive Safe1 year ago in Short Stories More Like This
They'd just finished the Roster Race; Vanellope had come in second this time behind Candlehead, but she didn't mind of course. He'd placed third, just behind her, but it didn't do damage to his ego like it normally would.

"Umm, I was just...wondering, Miss President-"
"You can just call me Vanellope, Swizz. It's only president if it's one of those formal meetings or whatever that Dad holds."

The reason to why I run.
I run away from reality
From the lungs that cannot
Take anymore smoke
From the heart that threatens to
I run away because
I'm a coward
Because I'm afraid of life
Afraid to care or love.
I'm afraid that every time
I'm glad it blows up in my face
And that every time I smile
I shed a million more tears.
That's why I run, dear
You have to understand.
I was destined to be a fighter but
I don't want to fight anymore.
I was destined to be a warrior
But how am I supposed to win when
The war I fight is against life itself?
I know that I always blow everything up but-
I keep stepping on mines, dear...

Come With MeA little girl with tear filled eyesCome With Me1 year ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Ran silent down the hall.
She didn't want to hear the sound
Of the noise beyond the walls.
She reached her room as the tears began
Falling softly down her cheeks.
It seemed that nothing could stop the tears
That came to her throughout the weeks.
Safe in her room she cried and cried
Not caring who might hear.
Perhaps someone could come and help her
Calm all of her fears.
Now as she cried a breeze came by
Through the window that was open.
And with tear filled eyes the girl looked up
And prayed a prayer unspoken.
"Please stop these things, oh please, my Lord.
And show them they are wrong.
Send an angel down to show us right
By words or yet by song."
The wind that came took away her prayer
High up into the heavens
Where an angel sat looking down
On the little girl of seven.
He' d heard her prayer, though silent it was
And pity touched his heart.
He could go to her and comfort her
He could maybe help in part.
With a careful leap the angel left

How to make Muffin-Tin PiesHow to make Muffin-Tin Pies2 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
This is a really fun recipe I use for the Holidays and parties! ^-^
The steps listed below will make approximately one/one-and-a-half batches of twelve mini mixed-berry pies. Just use a regular muffin tin, and you can use paper muffin cups if you like, but if you don't I recommend spraying the ENTIRE muffin tin (not just the cups) before putting in the dough to help them come out easier.
The Oven will need to be pre-heated to 350 degrees before the pies can go in the oven.
2 1/2 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons of salt
1/2 cup shortening (I generally use Crisco)
3/4 cup butter (chilled)
6 Tablespoons of ice water
Making the dough:
1.) Cut up butter into medium-sized cubes and return it to the refrigerator for later use.
2.) Cut up the shortening and drop in chunks into a bowl of ice water.
3.) In a separate bowl (large), combine flour, sugar and salt and then mix well.
3.) After they are chilled, remove the shortening from ice water, the but

Butter - 50 grams
Sugar - 50 grams
1/2 an egg, beaten
A dash of vanilla essence
Cake Flour - 130 grams
Baking Powder - 1/2 Teaspoon
Take the butter from the fridge and allow it to reach room temperature.

Add half of the sugar and beat it into the butter, then add the other half and beat until creamy.
Add the egg a little bit at a time, mixing well.
Add the dash of vanilla essence.
Sift the flour into a bowl, then add it to the other ingredients.
Use a wooden spoon to mix everything together, and shape it into a dough.
Wrap the dough in clingfilm/plastic wrap, and put it in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
Use a rolling pin to flatten the dough to about 5mm thickness.
Use a cookie cutter to cut out heart-shaped pieces, and put them on a sheet of aluminium foil on a baking tray.

With a beautiful twist.
It starts on my thigh,
And ends on my wrist.
My eyes give me away,
Though there's a smile on my lips.
I want my bones to protrude,
Especially on my hips.
It's an everyday battle,
Until finally you disappear,
Because you screamed your lungs out,
But nobody wanted to hear.
Cry yourself to sleep,
Another sleepless night,
Trapped in my own fucking mind.
I've been told that dreams,
Can come true.
But they forgot to mention,
That nightmares are dreams too.
So when will I wake up from mine,
Because I'm in a race against time.

Wasp was running out of options and out of time. Yet, he knew there was nothing he could do. Bumblebee, his secret mate and a maiko, had already had a patron pay for his mizuage and in a matter of five solar-cycles, the maiko would undergo the ceremony and have his virgin seal claimed.
This was a day that both knew would come, but never wanted to happen. Yet, Bumblebee was a maiko he knew what was to be expected and he accepted that his first time would never be with Wasp, a peasant. It may have hurt him to know of such truths, but his mentor had told him that geisha and maiko are not meant to have the freedom of love.
Yet, though Bumblebee could accept it, Wasp just couldn't. Damn it, the maiko was his beloved mate. He loved him so much and he didn't want his mate
