As detailed in my previous post, my brain is currently taking a holiday. Or wants to. Is there a difference? I don’t know. As such, today we’re bringing you a special new feature: Guest posts! Today’s guest is from Capt. Jill of Capt. Jill’s Journeys. When Jill contacted me asking if I’d be interested in her fare I eagerly agreed as the stew seemed like something straight out of Skyrim – just a few more ingredients! Hey, taste is important.
Similarly, the story of how this stew came to be seemed exactly like a scenario straight out of Skyrim (and I wouldn’t be surprised if one of the fisherman had taken a harpoon to the knee at some point). For the full story, why not check out Jill’s original post? Now, if only I could have a bowl delivered to my desk…
Ready? Let’s go. Take it away, Captain!

I have a confession to make: There will be no Senzu Bean Jelly Beans this week. At the time of this post there have been five failed batches of beans. I’d like to believe that each batch is a step closer to the desired result. It seems that there aren’t many decent how-to videos for making jelly beans around. I think in the end it should work out pretty well, but it is just not happening this week.
As a substitute, let’s sidetrack to one of my favorite games: Skyrim. One of the most iconic items from the game is the sweet roll. I actually had all of the ingredients on hand and didn’t need to make a special trip to the store, which is a nice change of pace. Today’s recipe is borrowed from Instructables with a small tweak at the end. Additionally, in place of the usual glaze Neo was craving some cream cheese icing. I’m inclined to agree with him here. The glaze/icing in the original sweet roll just seems more… substantial. No offense, Instructables. I’m sure your glaze is absolutely fantastic and I’ll probably try it someday. I use the cream cheese icing recipe from Food Network; it’s always yielded great results and has great taste. Links to these recipes can be found at the end of the post.
