A Slice of Apple Pie: Date Night With WWAC

Maybe there’s a universe somewhere, let’s call it Earth-1127, where I’m myself but somehow single. If Loki fell into that universe in his Agent of Asgard incarnation, he would be my dream Valentine’s date. He could cook me a nice dinner and then [imagine a sexy fanfic, but with good grammar and spelling]. But if a comic book character crossed over into THIS universe just in time for Valentine’s Day, I’d like it to be Steve Rogers. I’ve been happily married for 12 years and am not looking for outside romance, but we rarely do anything for Valentine’s Day...

The Twin Peaks Log S.2 E.3

Welcome to our biweekly roundtable of Twin Peaks where we are working our way through every. Single. Episode. Some of us are regulars and some of us newbies, but none of our experiences are the same. So get yourself a damn fine cup of coffee, watch along with us, and feel free to chime in on the comments section. Say anything you like, our log does not judge.

Cook Your Comics: Loki’s Salmon, Peppers, and Mustard Mash

I love it when comic books contain actual recipes. It’s the intersection of two of my very favorite things. So when I read Loki: Agent of Asgard #4 and the narration described a dinner Loki cooked for a friend, I knew instantly that I was going to try making it. And now I have. As you can see, it wasn’t a fully detailed recipe, but it was enough to get me started. I’d never heard of “mustard mash” before, but a quick Google revealed that it’s mashed potatoes with mustard mixed in, preferably whole-grain mustard. It sounded great, and...
