How come I haven't looked for them earlier on?
[community profile] bento and [community profile] bento_picnic are obviously both for bentos. That's the bright side! On the other side we find two communities with barely any entries or none at all and when I checked on the administrators neither the one nor the other seemed to have posted within the last 6 months on their dreamwidth journal. I have considered dropping both of them a message, but wonder how appropriate that would be.
Thus, none of the communities developed and none with challenges or recipes or How-to's. Too bad.

...erm, honestly, what about I do not know.
So I'll just see what communities I haven't yet talked about. Hm, food-related ones?

Some of you might now, for a couple of weeks now I starve for cooking. When it comes to cooking, I know nothing and the little I try is messed up. So I've been in a stroke to change this situation at least slightly and have done some easy meals (basically spaghetti with sauce with almost random ingredients) to warm up and even made Matt appreciate some of it (who doesn't like anything tomato-related, but then maybe he didn't appreciate the food, but just my effort to do it). I've done some "Gâteaux mousses au chocolat" which turned out quite delicious (in my opinion) and the people I shared them with seemed to enjoy them equally.
So for taking some further steps into the kitchen, I have subscribed to a heap of communities and feeds with the kitchen-theme, which makes me realise how many tools for the trade I lack. [personal profile] resa is not only a friend, but she's been also a great inspiration for this (renewed) interest of mine!
[community profile] boilingwater is for very basic cooking and you shouldn't be afraid to asks questions. I've seen several recipes so far that do stir my interest. (But I lack a mixing device.)
[syndicated profile] simplyrecipes_feed looks more like "standard" meals, but there seem to be some interesting ideas. [syndicated profile] just_hungry_feed is about food, too, but has lots of random talk in it - at least I do feel as if it isn't addressing me directly enough, so considering the amount of communities and feeds I've joined to check on them, this might be one that won't stay if I start combing through what needs to go. (On the other hand there are nifty explanations, for example on How to make onigiri.)
[community profile] thriftycooking has interesting discussions, but many of the topics don't apply for our household... (I couldn't make broth, we don't have a big enough pot.)
Now, [syndicated profile] happylittlebento_feed has a lot of... happy little bentos. Honestly they are so sweet to look at! The same goes for [syndicated profile] bentolicious_feed. [syndicated profile] bentobliss_feed has a lot of every-day-bentos, which doesn't make it look any less yummier.
[syndicated profile] adventures_bento_feed has not only a contest going on, but there are lots and lots of interesting, cute and intriguing bentos to be discovered. (I'm not a LOST-fan myself, but those might be particularly interested in the LOST-themed bentos.)
Und auf Deutsch: [syndicated profile] bentolunchblog_feed

I think that must have been the bulk. If you have any other communities or feeds in that direction to recommend, go ahead! And now: omnomnomnom!

martyna: one of my pyjamas and a hair brush (getting ready)
...que les gâteaux que j'ai fait étaient bons pas mauvais. Personnellement je les ai trouvé un peu lourds, mais c'est peut-être que dans cette recette on prévoit 12 et non seulement 6 gâteaux. Pour la même raison la cuisson était quelques minutes plus longue que les 12 minutes de la recette. Pour les coupeaux de chocolat, on peut râper un peu d'une tablette non-terminée (c'est ce que j'ai fait). (Puis, pour les mesures de la farine... ne pas s'inquiéter si ça passe un peu au pif-o-mètre...) Ah, et puis j'ai utilisé un plateaux-moules en silicone (?), donc pas de papier, pas de beurre... ça se détache sans soucis.
Peut-être j'en referais demain, une copine a son anniversaire le dimanche, ensuite les vacances et on ne se reverra pas après (et ce vendredi qu'à la va-vite). Ca ferait peut-être une jolie surprise. (Et dans ce cas-là je ferai sûrement un post avec des photos, la dernière fois je n'ai pas mis de carte SD dans l'appareil photo... d'oh!)
Sinon, est-ce que vous avez des recettes plutôt simples, pour muffins ou gâteaux similaires (sans qu'il faut battre des œufs!), que vous aimez et voudriez bien partager avec moi?

If anyone wants me to translate the recipe, go ahead and ask, I'll do so.

Übrigens, ich hatte mal von wem eine Anleitung für AMERIKANER, hat die wer von euch? Die war ganz simpel und ich hatte Spass dran... ansonsten suche ich mir eine irgendwo, aber die die ich hatte war irgendwie toll. ^____^'
