Welcome to Magic Coffeehouse! Come in, sit down, relax, get to know somebody!
The Magic Coffeehouse is an Overclan that acknowledges that we all are social creatures, and actually like to talk about various things with other people. Here, you can come in, get yourself some coffee, a cookie, or some cake, and just chat a bit with the people around us. And, unlike one of those coffeehouses down the street, this one doesn’t cost you anything! We promote a friendly atmosphere, and never turn down civil customers!
The Magic Coffeehouse was founded on April 19, 2006, by Arguas2617 and Omna15. It is an overclan that promotes friendly, spam-free discussion on a multitude of topics, while providing a comfortable circle of friends.
To join up with the Coffeehouse, merely post something about yourself that you’d like everyone to share, and perhaps talk about. We don’t like to make anyone feel isolated, as we are just looking for good friends tied together by the common thread of Magic. You can also post requests for drafts forming or start various other groupings of your choosing. Anyone can be a casual customer, but to be a Regular you must come around often, chat clearly and avoid spamming. We don't consider spam conversation, so join us for the real thing!

Shadowfox's Homemade Truffles! Arguas' Omelettes You should have:
Butter/something non-sticky for the pan
Heat Source (We'll use a range in this example)
Mixing Bowl (doesn't need to be huge)
Toppings (Suggestions include sausage, ham, bacon bits, cheese, spinach, broccoli flores)
Set your cooking range to the lower end of the Medium setting.
Crack open 2 eggs into the mixing bowl, allowing the yolk and as much of the plasma as possible to flow into the bowl.
Rotate the fork or the beater to spread out the yolks of the egg until you have a fine yellow liquid.
Once the frying pan is warm, pour out the contents of the egg from the mixing bowl onto the frying pan. Try as hard as possible not to let it spread out too far unless you have a circular frying pan. Should that be the case, let it spread out in a circular fashion to the ends.
While the underside of the omelette cooks, apply your toppings to the side of the omelette which is not finished cooking. While you spread out the toppings, most often the Omelette will have successfully cooked at this point.
Use your spatula to fold the two sides of the omelette together upon itself, or if it is circular flip over one side of it onto the other, effectively folding it in half. Let it cook and then flip it over to the other side.
Press the omelette down a bit, letting some of the excess juices flow, and then cook.
Use the spatula to remove the omelette and serve.
CANADIAN TERIYAKI TOFU
4 cups snow peas
4 cups cubed white button mushrooms or whole tiny button shrooms
4 cups chopped yellow onion
3-4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 8-oz extra firm tofu steaks, cubed and cubes rolled in flour spice mix
Toasted sesame seeds
Flour spice mix
1 cup wheat or corn flour
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tbsp dried basil
1/4 cup vegetable oil
CANADIAN TERIYAKI SAUCE
1 tbsp (LOL 10 ml) maple syrup
1 tbsp (LOL 10 ml) rice vinegar or red wine vinegar
3 tbsp (LOL 30 ml) soy sauce
Pinch ground ginger
Pinch red chile powder
Heat vegetable oil in 16" wide or larger wok or deep skillet until a bit of onion dropped in starts sizzling briskly right away.
Add tofu, onion, garlic; stir fry for 1-2 minutes on high heat.
Add mushroom; stir fry for 5-10 minutes or until onions are translucent and mushrooms are starting to soften and brown.
Add snow peas and stir fry for 5-10 more minutes. Pods should be glistening and softly springy, but still green.
Pour in Canadian teriyaki sauce, stir, lower heat to medium, simmer for 5-10 more minutes or until mixture starts to become dry and cooked, whichever is first.
Salt to taste.
Remove from heat, garnish with toasted sesame seeds, and serve over steamed rice or with soba. 6-8 servings.
Photon's Almond-Crusted Parmesan Chicken
First of all, you'll need enough chicken breast to provide each person with a good 3 or 4 strips. I usually go with about 1 large chicken breast per person. You'll want to cut each breast (once thawed) up into equally sized strips of about an inch of thickness. Also, another alternative is to use chicken tenderloins. If you go with this option, I would suggest about 3-4 strips per person, depending on the relative size of your pieces.
Then, combine 1 part finely crushed almonds with 1 part grated parmesan cheese. I usually use between a cup and a cup and a half, if forced to measure. Season this mixture with a dash of sea salt (you only really need a tiny bit here, since the cheese has a lot of salt in it), and some freshly ground pepper.
Gently beat together two eggs and a fourth of a cup (give or take a little) of water together to form an eggwash. Dip your chicken in the egg, and then coat both sides evenly in the cheese-almond mixture. Place on a non-stick baking sheet, and then bake for about 15 minutes in a 425 degree oven. You'll want to keep an eye on it so that your almonds don't burn- burnt almonds have an awful taste and it will ruin the dish entirely. When finished, the coating should be crispy and slightly golden.
Garnish with slivered almonds and some fresh cilantro.
Dreia's Recipes: Crab Meat and Cheese (Ragoons) Ingredients: 8 ounces, softened 4 green onions, chopped or diced 1 can crab meat 2 teaspoons minced garlic 25 wonton wrappers (small bowl of water)
You’ll need a medium mixing bowl and a frying pan or deep fryer.
Directions: Combine cream cheese, green onions, crab meat, and garlic. Spoon some of the mixture onto a wonton wrapper. Dab water around the edges of the wrapper. Place another wrapper on top, and seal against the water. Fry until golden brown. Remove from frying and let set on paper towels for a minute or two to cool.
Note: My friend fries hers in a pan, but when I made them we put them in a deep fryer basket. I cooked them for a little bit, then flipped them over and cooked until golden brown.
Wonton Appetizer Ingredients: 8 ounces cheddar or Colby jack cheese, shredded 8 ounces pepper jack cheese, shredded 1 cup ranch dressing 1 pound breakfast sausage 35 Wonton wrappers
You’ll need a medium bowl, frying pan, muffin pan, and a cookie sheet.
Directions: Preheat oven to 350°F. Cook and drain sausage. While cooking the sausage, take wonton wrappers and push them into the muffin shape of the muffin pan. Bake in the oven just long enough the shape will set (about 5 minutes). Remove from muffin pan and place on the cookie sheet. Combine the cheeses, dressing, and sausage in a medium bowl. Place the mixture into the formed wonton wrappers on the cookie sheet. Once the cookie sheet is full, or you have enough for what you need, bake them until the cheese is all melted.
Chicken Spaghetti Ingredients: 4-5 Chicken breasts, cut into pieces 12-16 ounces spaghetti noodles, cooked and cut into small pieces 16 ounces sour cream 1 (10¾ ounce) can cream of mushroom soup 1 (10¾ ounce) can cream of chicken soup 8 ounces Velveeta cheese, cubed 12-24 ounces cheese shredded (Colby jack or medium cheddar is yummy) Mushrooms, optional Season to taste (oregano, salt, pepper)
You’ll need a kettle to cook the chicken in, a kettle for noodles, a large bowl, and a 9”x13” pan.
Directions: Preheat oven to 350°F. Boil chicken until fully cooked and drain. Season the chicken after bowling for stronger taste. Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl. Spread into pan and bake.
Note: I used elbow macaroni and it worked quite well.
Shrimp or Chicken Alfredo Ingredients: 8 large shrimp, peeled and cleaned, or 2 chicken breasts 1½ teaspoons olive oil ¼ teaspoon oregano 1 clove garlic, chopped ¾ cup heavy cream ¾ cup parmesan cheese 7 ounces linguine noodles, cooked and drained 1 egg yolk, beaten Salt and pepper 1 teaspoon parsley chopped Lemon wedge and chopped parsley, optional garnish
You’ll need a dish for marinating, a kettle for noodles, and a skillet.
Directions: Marinate meat in oil, oregano, and garlic for 30 minutes. Remove meat and sauté in skilled over medium heat (for shrimp, just until tails curl and flash turns pink). Season it lightly with salt and pepper. Add heavy cream, cheese, and linguine. Simmer about 3 minutes, whisking constantly. When meat is fully cooked, whisk in egg yolk and parsley. Remove from heat and serve immediately. Garnish if you choose.
Notes: Noodles in one pan and sauce in another works best. Then pour sauce over pasta and toss together.
Mix until smooth:
4 cups white sugar
1 tablespoon corn syrup
3 pounds peanut butter
2 pounds brown sugar
8 teaspoons baking soda
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 pound butter (cannot use oleo/margarine)
Stir in until mixed well:
18 cups oatmeal
1 pound chocolate chips (mixture of other varieties works well too-my preference is butterscotch, chocolate, and white chocolate)
1 pound M&M's (plain/politically correct milk chocolate works best, because peanut are too big)
Use ice cream scoop to scoop cookies onto cookie sheet. Flatten before baking. Bake at 350F to desired consistency (chewy or crunchy). Approximately 12-15 minutes. Do not overbake.
Note: A half batch is enough to fill two large Tupperware containers. A full batch makes about 60 (5" diameter)cookies.
Mamelon's Sweet & Spicy Rice
I started with my basic recipe for caramelized rice, which is as follows:
1-2 tbsp butter
1-2 tbsp sugar
1 pinch salt
1 cup rice
1-2 cups water
I add the butter to a large metal cooking pot. Then (very important) you let the butter cook until it turns brown. Add the sugar and salt, then add the rice and coat with butter. Then add enough water to cover the rice.
To this, I added:
1 tsp dill seeds
1 tsp sweet paprika
1 tsp cinammon powder
1 tsp dried oregano
several grinds of fresh black pepper
Add these together with the butter. When the rice and water is combined and comes to a boil, add:
1/4 cup good red wine
Bring to a boil, then simmer on low flame/low heat for 10-12 minutes. When the water is absorbed properly, add:
1/2 cup milk
1 tbsp horseradish sauce or 1 tsp ground horseradish
1/4 cup frozen or fresh peas
Let the milk simmer and condense, then add:
1/4 cup your choice of rice vinegar, balsamic vinegar, red wine or sherry vinegar, italian dressing, dijon dressing, or other acid-based dressing
Additional vegetables, like onions, would also be welcome, as would ground ginger and curry powder.
Mamelon's Honey & Nut Glazed Chicken
I started with
4 small chicken tenderloins
But one or two chicken breasts, or other type of chicken meat, would also be fine. Some other type of meat would probably also be good with this dish.
I made a brine out of 1 part salt, 1 part vinegar, and 2 parts water, and let the chicken soak in it for a half hour (or more). Afterwards, dice or chop chicken and add to a hot pan with butter or your choice of oil. After the chicken has some color on the outer side, add:
2-3 tbsps of your choice of good wine or vinegar
1-2 pinches of salt
several grinds black pepper
2-3 tbsps honey
1/3 cup shelled peanuts (or other similar nut/legume of your choice)
Bring the liquid to a boil, then reduce heat and let the chicken cook. Before it's done, you may add, at your option, any combination of:
1 tbsp barbecue sauce
several dashes of worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp mustard
1 tbsp peanut butter
You want the liquid to reduce quite a bit, but it's best to allow some of it to remain to form a sauce.
Mamelon's Breadcrumb Stuffed Mushrooms
I started with seven smallish, toad-stool lookin' mushrooms, but other kinds of mushrooms would be very good choices. Remove the mushrooms stems.
Then I prepared breadcrumbs by toasting wheat bread and curmbling it (should make about a cup) but any other type of bread, premade breadcrumbs, or panko would work, too.
I combined breadcrumbs with 2 tbsps melted butter, 1/2 tsp rosemary, a dash of salt, and a few grinds of black pepper. Combine with hands until flavors permeate.
Fill the cavity in each mushroom with breadcrumb mixture until they are overfull. Sprinkle remaining crumbs over the mushrooms.
Mine only took about 10 minutes on 350 to roast and make the crumbs golden, but you may need to adjust cooking time for larger mushrooms and if you make more at a time.

The above links are to four .zip files, containing the songs for each. I've already prepped them for iTunes use, and they are long enough to burn on a CD. I have since deleted the individual links to the Mp3s. To reiterate: They are prepped for iTunes specifically, but you don't need it to listen to them.
Volume 5: The Empire's Eight-Track and Volume 6: The Refill of the Jedi will come one after another as I add new Mp3s. When I have enough for an album, I'll release it.
Two-Mix Edition From Gundam Wing, performed by Two-Mix. Just Communication(Show Opening 1) Rhythm Emotion(Show Opening 2) White Reflection(Endless Waltz OVA) Last Impression(Endless Waltz Movie) My apologies for the end of the mp3, it appears to be a bit scratchy, or something, or maybe that's just me. Or maybe that's how it's supposed to sound. Can anyone help?

Oooooh, new thread! First one since I showed up at the Coffeehouse!
@Omna: Hope everything goes smoothly for your move. We'll see you in a week (or whenever it is you get your computer back up and running).
Also, I've discovered I seem to have gotten overly good at procrastinating. This led to me not doing anywhere near enough work over the weekend (at least until late Sunday evening), which then resulted in me staying up 2-3 hours later than I should have. I suppose most of said work is rather irrelevant, but I still should be doing it before 1:00 am when I have to get up before 7:00 the next morning.
well, I'm back at college and getting back in the swing of things...I also went ahead and bought a few things that I'm going to need for my extended zoo deck (although in looking at FLCL's n00bstax deck, that kind of play seems right up my alley, I'll look into a post-rotation version)
and seeing as I've become a regular so quickly, it's time for me to make shameless plugs about it in the rest of the fourms! ta

Quote from Concerning breeding habits of humans in fantasy games »
I suppose it's true. Though the logistics implied in a human/Great Wyrm Prismatic Dragon pairing makes me shudder.
...Something tells me that even should all arcane casters in the world unite, that the Grease spell would NOT be sufficient.
I'm about to go play IRL D&D and so will not be on tonight- brokenness FTW. Wish me luck vs big nasties....:D:D
Aw, I guess that means no mad updating of your epic campagin tonight. Darn, it's more fun when that happens.
Wait...I probably won't be online much this evening either. Well, have fun with your RL D&D. We call know that can potentially be one of the most awesomest things ever.
(Yes, I just said "most awesomest".)
Hallo, AoK! Best of luck against those CR 50+ monsters, eh? At Epic level, it's either not about luck at all, or it's all luck.
So true. That +/- 1 or 2 to hit never really matters at those levels (unless the DM does a ridiculous job tailoring the monsters' ACs to the attack bonuses of the characters, which also have to be relatively consistent).
On a different note, anyone here a fan of American College Football? I'm probably going to stay up way too late tonight watching the national championship game, so that's why I'm not going to be here if anyone cares.
they should just have a playoff of the top 8/16 teams and do it like college basketball
I agree. I don't think a March Madness-style playoff would work very well as there would just be way too many teams (college football teams only play 12-13 game regular seasons anyway, you can't tack on that many more games). However, I think a playoff is warranted by this point (the BSC is, quite honestly, terrible). I'm a big fan of the "and one" idea (meaning one extra game). It would be set up as a standard playoff, but there would only be 4 teams involved (so the first round of the "and one" section would be 1v4 and 2v3 with the winners advancing to the national title game).
I think an 8-team playoff would work, but it might get a little strenuous forcing teams to play up to 3 playoff games, and it could potentially not end until way too late in the year (the beginning of January is late enough, otherwise they start losing viewers to the pro football playoffs).
Anyway, I agree that the BSC really doesn't work at all, but I think a full-scale playoff is also out of the question just because of logistics and the fact that american football is too strenuous a game for that to work on the player's side (there's a reason they only play once a week).
Not much really happening at the moment. I'm getting my haircut tomorrow, so that will be nice.
I was hanging with my friends while playing WoW, and it made me realize all over again how much I miss them in RL. Oh well... I'm sure I'll be able to visit them again sometime. This time, I hope its for longer than last time so we have ample time to hang out.
Oh, another slight bit of news. My step-mothers' memorial service was on Friday, and it went well. Then, I hear on Sat. that my Uncle passed away. I was a state of sheer disbelief at first. He apparently laid down for a nap, and didn't wake up. Pretty much the same way my grandfather passed about 12 years ago. I'm not totally sure how it all happened, but yeah. The past few weeks have not been that fantastic for me.
Ack! Omna you kicked me onto casual customers again! Must we have this conversation every thread?!? I do my best damn it!
lol, just kidding :p, kinda. I'm bothering you about this when you get your computer :p.
Ugh, I'm sorry Buzz, that stinks. I count myself lucky I've hardly ever gone through that kind of pain myself. My great-grandmothers have both died when I was old enough to understand it, but they were still old and my family had been expecting it, actually hoping for it in one of their cases.
I borrowed Rock Band from my friend because his bass drum pedal broke and he has to get it replaced, I've sang all day long and my voice is sort of fried. I shouldn't have been drinking caffeine at the same time either >.< ... Constricts your airway slightly.

I'll bet you wish you had a non-unglued/unhinged card that shared your first name.
Hey, new thread, I guess I'll pop in and say hi. I haven't really been up to anything big lately; just being lazy until school starts again on Wednesday. Although I really should be finishing up my college applications. I only have 2 to go, and one is really short.
@KK: Yeah, I'm casual too, but I probably deserve it, considering I post like once a week, maybe. Actually, I don't really mind being casual; it lowers my responsibility level to post often :p.
Random topic: Has anyone watched Heroes? I watched the first episode online a few weeks ago, and I got completely hooked. I've seriously been watching the episodes nonstop since around Christmas time, and I'm almost caught up. Although that means that I have to wait awhile before the next season. Still, I find the show intriguing, and completely addicting. There are so many different characters that you get attached to, and you just have to know what happens to each one. The writers did a great job of forcing the viewers to keep watching once you've started. Or maybe I'm just obsessive like that :p.
New thread; woot. I'll have to figure out again how to make a link that points straight at the latest post. Apparently I forgot how to do it.
Xbox Live has been screwing up off and on for the past two weeks. This is the subject of much annoyance to many subscribers. And three guys from Texas are suing Microsoft for the sum of five million dollars in damages. It's meant to be for the community. I wonder if anyone else will see a dime. Still, I think Microsoft should have to award us something more than a free Xbox Live Arcade game (which may very well be a free, low quality Tetris) for being this unintelligent. Not only did they not anticipate the rush after Christmas (something even a four year old could have predicted), it took them over a week and a half to simply make a statement, and they still haven't fixed it. New servers shouldn't take more than a day, especially if Microsoft is doing it.
What's more, they have Call of Duty 4, Halo 3, and Gears of War all running off the same servers. Talk about unintelligent.
really there serves all crashed? thats so like Microsoft to charge you and not give you the service oh well i switched to playstation network any way its being free is what decided which system i bought
