The Dutch Baby

Every Sunday the Urscheldome Kitchen cooks up our new favorite breakfast dish, The Dutch Baby. It is also called a German Pancake. This morning Sophia and I whipped one up and I decided to share the how to with everyone. Let's get started.

First, you're going to need to get yourself a cast iron skillet. Then, get these ingredients:
1 Tbsp. butter
2 Eggs
2 Tbsp. Sugar
1/2 Tsp. Pure Vanilla Extract
Zest of One Lemon
1/2 Cup Milk
1/2 Cup Flour
Troy Polamalu stand-up (optional)

Put the butter in your skillet and set that in a cold oven. Then set it for 450 degrees. The butter, when the over is heated, will be just melted enough to coat your pan. Zest your lemon using whatever means you can. If there's a small child that wants to do it for you, by all means, let them!

In a bowl, combine the eggs, sugar, zest and vanilla extract. Once that's done, slowly stir in the milk. Then dump in the flour and beat until all lumps are gone, but don't overmix. Lumps are gross, right?

By the time you're done mixing, the oven should be almost ready. Carefully remove your skillet from the oven. Swirl your melted butter around to coat the bottom and the sides. Then pour in your batter. Put it back in the over for 13 minutes.

Your Baby will become very light and puffy.

After 13 minutes, remove it from the oven. Within seconds, the Baby will settle. Using a spatula, remove the Baby from the skillet. It can be cut into servings if you like and feel free to add any topping you like. Normally fruit is a good addition, but we were out, so this morning we added some powdered sugar and Nutella.

Delicious. Enjoy!

Theo Huxtable

Dylan McKay


It seems that in 2002 this dynamic duo joined forces to create a TV series based on a Belgian comic book about a post-apocalytic future. Seems that our boy Luke is set to rebuild the world after human kind was beatdown by some deadly virus. Theo, who has recently morphed into a poor man's Lenny Kravitz, puts his shirt back on and his base guitar down in time to join the fun as the cynical yet compassionate sidekick.

The story involves something called Thunder Mountain and the Valhalla Sector. Right. I wonder if there are any Lisa Bonet cameos?

Click the names for the clips yall. They are nice.

PS If you missed the Where Caucasian Happens get there and BIG UPS to Krowbar and Pretty in Pink for hosting a slurry APT crew last evening. Brace yourselves for the SB 1200 BBQ. Grab your records and protective helmet.

Where Caucasian Happens

APT is committed to playing and talking about (mostly in excess) the game that captured our collective hearts and minds as children.

Despite our limited athleticsm we continue to play (foul) with zeal. While we are an equal opportunity blog, there is a decidedly white-suburban-flair to our 'ish. In honor of our heritage and its limitations...peep this...

My favorite is the Danny Ferry rookie card. Aces!

Three Wolf Moon

Feeling down? Feeling like you've lost your mojo, your power, your spirit? No worries. For just over $10 you can change your life.

Courtesy of MC Larke, via the APT extension, heads should be bustin' out their credit cards and heading to for one of these shirts. All reviews lead towards the positive, and if that's not convincing enough, check this video:

I expect that by next week, W2, King Roomie Rock, and Dr. D will be sporting these in the Old Port, breaking hearts and healing all the problems of the world.

P.S. - Don't forget to drink your Tuscan Whole Milk as well!

Interweb Shakedown

I am on Memorial Day lockdown nursing tired legs and qualitative research article induced paper cuts. But making time for a tour around the web is never a problem. The morning surf produced big smiles and some head scratching weirdness.

-Stop by Allmusic for an amazing article about the origins of the sexy shift in 70's LP cover art.

-Try and digest Grizzly Bear's weird new video.

-Chose sides...both here and here!

-Finally, and this one is for the fellas, pick up a good book, your masculinity just may depend on it!

The Meaning Behind the Madness

No way Em can get on the M-I-C and rock-it to German Flamenco without the most true innovators blazing the way.

Take a trip down memory lane with left of center leaders, the quirky, confident, and freewheeling-Pos, Trugoy, and Plug 3. Get the story behind the music...Three Feet High and still Rising!

Additionally, Barry Gibb and his brother Robin are picking the Nuggets in six.
