I had some friends over tonight to play some D&D, a campaign in fact that Lominari had created especially for the holiday season in which we had to defeat….KRAMPUS!!

It was a great story for his first time writing a campaign. It was funny because he had the absolute worst rolls the entire time – so bad in fact that only 1 of our party took 3 points of damage (2 were a buff as well). Krampus had so much health that the 4 of us added together still would have only had half it health pool! We rocked it!!

Anyway because we all play WoW i decided to try out some of the recipes in my cook book.  I made a few of the sides so there was some variety.

I started with the Wild rice cakes. Everyone loved them; I felt i used too much flour but I will try them again later and see if that was indeed the case.

This is the mixture before cooking. I made so much extra rice by accident that We might be eating it for a couple of days.

I also made the “sauteed carrots” from Pandaria. These were so delicious. 

The picture above has the “zanga caps” as well. I cannot truly explain how yummy the mushrooms are, they would work well with steak or any roast or, well, jus about anything else! I have a small amount left over and plan to have some with bacon in the morning.  You can also see the cooked wild rice cakes in the image below.

For dessert I made “Dalaran brownies”. 

I had to make these with Gluten free flour so I have no idea what they would be like with normal flour; but these were amazing. Dense, chocolatey, soft and fudgey. 

The glaze was so good that one of my guests ended up licking the plate clean of the excess. 


This was just at the beginning of the licking. It was pretty much empty by the end of the night.

So of the 4 recipes i made from the book tonight – all four were well received by my guests. The mushrooms seemed to be the most favoured by the majority but it was a slim margin on the others. 

I really enjoyed cooking these recipes and it has made me want to try out other ones that are not in it 🙂 Maybe I can help with a volume 2?
