I told you guys that I'm wasting a lot of time nowadays looking at pretty pictures and interesting ideas on Pinterest.I already have a bunch of different boards for all kinds of stuff - be it food or interior design. But I especially liked the idea of someone making up Harry Potter related drinks. And then I googled the term and came up with a bunch of interesting stuff.

Cocktails Inspired by Evolutionary Stages of Pokémon The sophisticated Pokémon trainer demands a beverage that will meet the needs of his or her discerning palate. The Pokémon cocktails developed by the author(s) of the Drunken Moogle blog do just that, with a series that include three separate drinks inspired by each of the evolutionary stages of various pocket monsters. Each series begins with a shot, moves on to a midsize drink served in a tumbler, and then a highball-sized cocktail. It’s notable that each drink builds on the previous, so the Charmeleon contains the ingredients from the Charizard, and so on. The Charmander series looks particularly interesting, partly because it uses the truly excellent Fireball cinnamon whiskey, but also because you can light them on fire. Read on below to get the recipes for this and other intriguing Pokémon cocktails, but remember: Pokémon masters always drink responsibly. (The Drunken Moogle via Geekologie)

Chocolate Guinness Goodness Recipe at Epicurious Editor's note: This recipe was developed by Shane Philip Coffey, the chef at Alias restaurant on New York City's Lower East Side. This rich and luscious dessert came about because I needed a special dessert for a St. Patrick's Day tasting menu. I was on a mission to use my favorite beer, Guinness, something I consider to be one of Ireland's gifts to the world. As the 17th of March drew closer, I looked for inspiration at my favorite Irish pub in Manhattan. Make the effort to find a good dark chocolate (about 70 to 72 percent cacao).

Green Mac and Cheese Mac and cheese is the ultimate comfort meal for Mandi and me. We make it when it has been a rough day, or on a Sunday night to relax. It is very easy to make, super addicting when you eat it, and the best thing is there are always leftovers to bring in to work for lunch. We wanted to make some a few days ago so I looked at the site to see what Mac and cheeses I have done on here to make sure we made something different I would be able to post. I was surprised to find only 2 (full) mac and cheese recipes! We brainstormed this one over email in the afternoon and feasted on its amazingness that night. Pretty basil flower. We are using the tops of broccoli in this meal, but don't toss out that beautiful stalk! This is some sausage I had in the freezer. A food processor would be better, but I was able to blend this up well after a few times of shutting it off and pressing everything down. Everything ready to go. Onions, Broc-stalk, salt, pepper, cayenne. Meanwhile, Mandi made some breadcrumbs.

Hiram Abiff, the True King of Egypt,1554BC The Nag Hammidi Scrolls and The Dead Sea Scrolls are another example of a treasure trove of the writings of the disciples in the 1st century AD. Dismissed by the church as heresy, they reveal a great deal of the 'spiritual' insight of the early Christians. We also have documentation of when rulers like Alexander changed history and tried to preserve everything he found in Egypt instead of trying to destroy it like the Romans did. He found what we now call the 'Emerald Tablets of Thoth' . These are a record of the words of the so-called mythical 'wisdom' God of Egypt recorded some time before 10,000 BC. In addition to this, there is a record stating that the Great Pyramid was never meant to be a burial chamber for any pharaoh but current Egyptian Authorities who are Muslim will not concede that the Egyptian culture is far older that any other culture on Earth except one. The emphasis of this site is to explore the origins of Masonry. It Begins with Knowledge: The Legacy of the Templars

15 Insanely Dangerous Cocktails We Dare You To Try This New Year Some of the most iconic cocktails which the world has come to know of are either too sweet or too flashy, politely missing the point of a cocktail altogether.

The Hidden Records - Historical lost symbol of the Solomon Key parchme (...) Perfect Mac-n-Cheese « My Cooking Quest November 13, 2008 by joejhorn A few weeks ago I started a quest for some good mac and cheese. Nancy makes a killer mac-n-cheese but I wanted my own. I’m sure I frustrate the crap out of Nancy sometimes because I’m always looking for something better when it comes to food and recipes. My first attempt was with a Jamie Oliver version that didn’t include a bechamel sauce but instead called for mixing the cooked pasta with the cheese and then baking it. The second version, I made a few nights ago for my best bud Chad, Nancy and the boys. Chad is up from San Francisco and has been visiting for the past week. Last night was particularly funny though since you can customize your player characters. Well back to the mac-n-cheese. Chad, who is like me, super-competitive and a bit of a perfectionist said “Let’s do it again and do it right this time!” Perfect Mac-n-Cheese (serves 4 as a side dish) Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beecher’s Flagship Cheese Sauce (makes 4 cups) Remove from the heat.

Note: If you want the lemonade to be extra sweet, add a fifth can of concentrate to the mix. Then pour in all the beer. The main point in using Pabst Blue Ribbon (PBR) is not because it's cheap, (although that is always a good thing in my book!) Toss some ice in a glass and drink responsibly!
