Ian Archibald19,730People I Learn FromWe all have people we like to learn from, who we might look up to to act as a mentor and people we connect with.  This share is people who meet these criteria for me.I haven't crafted any circle shares of late, and those who remember the shares that I created during Christmas took a lot of effort - sorting through 100's of posts, locating the top people/posts/engagement, etc.  The last significant one I did took me over 7 hours to produce.  I really enjoy creating them, but alas I don't have that much time.Who's in this circle?A lot of people you likely know and may already have circled. There are educators, scientists, speakers, developers, SEO Experts and just plain awesome people.I know many people like to add rules to their circle shares. Personally, I don't. There are many reasons for this, but let's just say, I don't like spam and the countless BS Community requests that surely follow. In short, don't blindly add people just for the sake of doing so.How Can I Get Into This Circle?I don't add people blindly.  Each person in this list has been vetted. If there needs to be some rules to end up here...• Be active - No activity = no circle.• Create Quality Content - I want to hear what you have to say• Be Original - Be Awesome• Engage with people. If you're not being seen, who will find you?Hope you all have a great week!2014-03-31 01:02:36186182223CC G+

Find topics of interest and connect with those people who share that interest.I would very much like to share with you "my" circle of Plussers of whom I LOVE to engage with.  There are people in science, sports, networking, technology, comics, art and medicine found inside, and likely some others as well.  I've been spending the last couple years curating this list.I hope that you will connect with some of these folks!Have a great weekend everyone!2014-02-15 01:16:53326182224CC G+

Neal Schaffer26,088The Social Media Content Engagers Google Plus CircleI plan to write a more extensive blog post in the subject of the growing phenomenon of Google Plus Circle Sharing, but in the meantime I hand-curated my Top 100 Social Media Content Engagers Google Plus Circle last night and wanted to share it with you.Who I Chose For This CircleThis circle is full of actual Google Plus users who have engaged with me over the last ten days. It didn't matter if you had 1 follower or 100,000 followers, but I chose those that were people (not brands), had a recognizable photo on their profile, and had added me to one of their circles.The Objective of Sharing This Circle1. First and foremost to thank those that have engaged with my content. I can never spend enough time on Google Plus, so I want to do my best to thank those that I might not thank on a more regular basis.2. To help expose you to great people on Google Plus who actually engage on Google Plus, especially those that engage with social media content, which is what I primarily share.3. I'd be lying if I said that this wasn't part of the grand experiment that we call social media.So, Who Is In This Circle?This circle represents the breadth and diversity that is Google Plus. There are people from all over the world, different industries, and with different follower counts. Let me personally introduce some in the circle to you:1. +Maximize Social Business Contributors: I must start by thanking those, both past and present, that have become my colleagues in Maximize Social Business. This circle includes : +Mark Traphagen +Jesse Aaron +Rachel Miller +Debbie Miller +Julia Campbell +Joseph Ruiz 2. Fellow Social Media Authors +Hannah Morgan +Albert Qian +Andrea Vahl 3. Great Social Media Influencers, Bloggers & Enthusiasts Whom I've Personally Met: +Darin R. McClure 2013-12-27 20:50:5010012810394CC G+

Roy Richardson1,476Circle Share-- Foodies, Food Bloggers, and People who are very Social about FoodWhile I haven't shared very much of this side of me on Google+, I am a major foodie. I looked for a long time for the word that described me and one day Patton Oswalt used that word in an interview and I Googled it to find its meaning and there I was. Here is a circle of Food experts and Food mad scientists who look at food as a path to healthy living or happy living. I don't think you will be disappointed. I will start posting more of my own recipes and food experiments.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foodie2013-11-19 21:43:5588000CC G+
Paul Schoonhoven4,198(English below)Lang niet gedaan, maar nu maar weer eens wel.Een kring met alleen maar foodies. Volgens mij heeft iedereen die in deze kring zit wel wat met eten. Een deel deelt in het engels. Een ander deel vooral in het Nederlands.Voeg de kring toe aan je bestaande kring met foodies, sla m op als een aparte kring, of neem de tijd om gelijk er even doorheen te bladeren. Mocht je vinden dat je zelf in de kring thuishoort, of dat er iemand ontbreekt, laat het dan even weten. It is a long time ago that I shared a circle with foodies.This circle contains foodies. People who have something with food. It is a mixed circle. Some write Dutch,others English.Just add it to you circle with foodies, make a new circle, or take a look at the list and make your choice.If you think you should be included, or if you know someone who should be included, but is missing, just let me know in the comments.Update:I almost forget to mention the community of +Food, Foodies & Future : https://plus.google.com/104229008602313911495/posts/31GFN8K9uAA#SharedCircles   #Food  2013-10-05 18:05:28162613CC G+

there's a place called Flavortown, and you should be afraid of it!

+WordPress is becoming more of a PITA with every update :/  i've lost my ability to see any content in the visual editor, and its touch and go as to whether i can actually see content in the html editor.   

Forum help is not helpful either.  The stock answer seems to be "disable all plugins" or "ditch your themes".   This has routinely happened with EVERY SINGLE EFFING UPDATE recently!!!

FWIW this just wasted the better part of my day when all I wanted to do was 1) add 2 new pics to a (non-custom) gallery, and 2) add a couple of new listings of ingredients to an existing page of products :/

<shakes fist in vain>

... along the walkway by the greenhouses where they create all those hanging baskets that adorn the lamposts all summer! Taken about a year ago, on a gorgeous sunny day just like today!

Its the Sunday stack ... on Monday

I hope y'all had a great Easter yesterday!  We slept in this morning, and had a leisurely pancake brekkie, with Strawberries and some strawberry syrup from the pantry.  After a fair bit of mucking around trying out various #glutenfree  pancake mixes, Jeffrey has decided he likes this recipe best.  I made this batch with sorghum flour and green buckwheat flour, but you can substitute most any flour by weight

We're having soft #glutenfree  dinner rolls with roast beef tonight

But the kitchen fairies didn't get the roast out earlier to come to room temp, so the buns are done before the roast is.  Jeffrey is eating ALL the buns.

I'll post the recipe tomorrow - millet, eggs and cream make them a nice enriched bread.  Easy to bake in a muffin tin with a #16 scoop.  I'm also playing around with a few different shaping options.

1-2-3-4 Cake is an old-school recipe for what might be the best yellow cake ever. I like it because I'm a fan of eggs--many layer cakes only use 2, and this calls for 4. Not only do the extra eggs bring more color and fat to the batter, the extra lecithin really helps to create a stable emulsion, even if you rush making your batter just a bit.  

These layers bake up high and slice beautifully.  And one of the best things about this cake is you can easily memorize the formula so you can make it on the fly, even at Aunt Minnie's house!

If you look carefully, you can see that this is a play on the original pound cake. The sugar and flour are roughly equal in weight. The butter from the original pound cake is scaled way back (in half: 8 oz rather than a pound) as are the eggs (4 eggs, or roughly 8 oz as opposed to a pound of eggs). Leavener is added for lift, milk is addedf... more »

I can haz cheezeburger ... pizza

Because it seemed like the thing to do with some ground beef, and some pizza dough stashed in the freezer.  Salad on the side with some orange-tahini-yogurt dressing.  

The base for the orange-tahini part of the dressing was a whole orange, cut in pieces and simmered for about an hour, then blitzed in the blender with oil, garlic salt, ras el hanout and a bit of water.  I'll attempt to recreate it and note down proportions if anyone is interested.

Panfried cabbage with kimchee ... and an egg

So the dinner fairies failed to have dinner waiting for me when I got home, and I didn't feel like cooking much of anything after dropping off a dinner order.  

So, Jeffrey got the leftover roast lamb with a baked sweet potato, and I panfried the last of some savoy cabbage with kimchee and a few veg floating around in the fridge, with a crispy-edges egg :)

I'm debating whether I'll be with it enough to stay up for the lunar eclipse here.  Are y'all staying up for it?

Can you hear the popping of the pine cones?

That crackling noise in the background is pine cones, cracking open to release the seeds!  We've had a string of warmer, sunnier days here, and I guess that's been enough to encourage the pine cones to open up.  View is from the reservoir at the top of Mount Tolmie, looking southeast ... a snowy Mount Baker in the distance (although its too light to get picked up in the video)

As the crow flies ... Mount Tolmie would be in the middle of my route home from the kitchen.  As it happens, the major roadways divert one around it, unless you are specifically looking to get up to the top.

Going by parkland like this every day, one tends to forget just how much green space we have here in Victoria - its easy to take it all for granted!  

Mount Tolmie Park is managed by the municipality, and contains protected Garry Oak habitat.  There's loads of spring wildflowers out like shooting stars and erythronium right now, and its all less than a 5 min walk from one of the busiest roads in the city.

Chicken salad sammich on *#glutenfree** baguette*

I just dropped off a whole lot of these, plus some pimped out egg salad, some roasted yam + black bean salad, and lots of treats over in Fernwood (the hipster heart of Victoria!).

Time now for a coffee and lunch, and a few veg with some butternut squash dip. I made the chicken salad with red seedless grapes, some Herbs de Provence, scallions and celery, and added some caramelized onions on top. What do you put in yours?

"Chef would prefer you to begin eating on the far side of the plate, and then proceed on your flavor journey from left to right,"

the giggle-worthy quote aside, this is a great piece on what the commodification of dining is doing to restaurants and diners.  Spot-on observation IMO that  _"... people have become so divorced from cooking that what we do is starting to seem like magic"_. #truestory

Guess that Herb!

The chives are filling out, the rosemary is in full bloom, and other assorted perennial herbs are stretching out a bit.

I use this particular one chopped in salads, and it also makes a great green to add to chicken salad and egg salad sammiches.

What do you think this is?

Yes Facebook Is Throttling Your Reach...and Laughing All the Way to the Bank

I think the comment +Jay Baer made on another share of his article below is insightful: Facebook doesn't care if you or I leave, because the Nikes and Aeropostales aren't going anywhere, and they are spending millions to promote their content in Facebook. It makes sense that Facebook would clear out the Baltic and Mediterranean brands to make room in people's news feeds for the Boardwalks and Park Places.

Jay concludes: why don’t we stop bitching about Facebook, realize that they snookered the business community, and get back to work? And he offers four ways you can respond to "Reachpocalypse."

Easy like Sunday dinner

This week strip loin were on sale (buy 1 get 1 free), so I picked up a couple of packages to stash in the freezer.  Carrots, fennel and onions roasted in the oven at 400 for about 25 mins with some duck fat, and then I tossed in some asparagus for another 15 minutes or so while I seared off the steak and did up some #glutenfree  red-eye gravy.  Because Jeffrey always has to have a starch on the plate, I did some garlic toast ... with duckfat ... because we have no butter ( #truestory )

Halfway there

I realized with a bit of a start that its the beginning of April and I really don't have much going in the garden other than the perennial herbs and some volunteer greens that have popped up.

I've cleaned up all the pots in the patio (a few self-watering planters in the mix to make things easier), and they're all set for planting out.  I also managed to get a larger 2x8 bed dug out ready to plant some lentils and peas, and hopefully have a couple of free daylight hours this week to get the rest cleaned out.  I've got a stash of spoiled straw bales in the back shed that are going to make splendid mulch, and I'm debating tracking down a source of llamma poop for fertilizer - word is it won't burn your plants even if its not fully broken down

What are your first garden plantings?

Egg White Hollandaise: By using a whipping siphon and modernist ingredients in this recipe, we cut the fat by half, but we're still able to create a durable and delicious foam. To reserve warm, use a holding bath at 149 °F / 65 °C. And if you want to store for later use, it will keep for up to five days in the refrigerator.

Eggplant relish

Its a bit of a random food day here today.  Along with the char siu (which is ALL gone now btw ;)), I got some of Cory's smoked turkey for sammiches.  Upon rooting thru the fridge, it turned out there was only enough tomato for Jeffrey and Nicole, so I decided to pull out the eggplant relish for myself.

This is something I do in batches and keep in the fridge in a mason jar, and gets better with at least a week for the flavours to mingle.  It a great condiment, but it also makes a nice addition to cheese and charcuterie plates.

 Making it is pretty easy - just toast the seeds in oil, give the eggplant a quick saute and add everything and let it simmer about 15-20 minutes.   Sometimes the spices change with what's on hand - this batch has some nigella seed added.

1/4 cup neutral oil
4-5 cloves garlic
1 T fenugreekseed... more »

Another long week - fried food seems like a fitting end

#glutenfree  beer batter recipe here: http://realfoodmadeeasy.ca/2013/04/gluten-free-beer-battered-fish-n-chips/ - tonight's version had my cake flour in the batter instead of the bread flour, because that's what i grabbed from the kitchen before heading home.  You can see that it changes the texture of the batter to be a little more tempura like in texture.

Coleslaw and tartar sauce on the side.  Coleslaw made with 1/2 a small savoy cabbage, thinly sliced red onion, and a bit of celery seed, salt, sugar, rice vinegar and a bit of mayo.
