1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Grant is going to kick your ass if he ever finds out you mentioned the name of his restaurant in this threak.

    Grant is putting a version of watermelon cake on his menu.

    He's also turning it into a drink for his Aviary bar.

    He will likely substitute pine nuts for pumpkin seeds to make it a little classier.

    I provided a 100% vegan raw garden cake.


    Are you a raw vegan too?

    Smoked tofu is actually really good. I make it for my pops all the time.

    in honor of this thread, I will submit sometime in the near future, a planned garden party by a cousin in law, where she will attempt to learn how to spit roast a whole pig, including the slaughter of the animal, the design of the roast, etc.

    will try to include edited pics of the slaughter of course.

    and will bring a watermelon/avocado "cake" to the party.


    It's a garden party, not a barbecue.

    You smoke it with that smoker you don't have?

    Hitting up the Prime Ministers' Garden Party (Canada) this Friday. Been the past 3 years and it's pretty cool. They always theme the decor of it which is pretty cool. Free booze and food along with a great lookout of Ottawa.

    That would go well with the whale sashimi, foie gras, and veal. Actually, those sound like they'd make a great cake!

    I found a clearer picture of the cake, it doesn't look as bad in this one:

    The pears need to be oxidized more so they match the brown of the skin.
