Dragon Age 2

The first game had an amazing story line and I enjoyed playing it quite a bit. This one should be even better. Bioware has always cranked out titles with amazing single player gameplay like the mass effect series, bioshock, and dragon age. I'm looking forward to it personally. Happy gaming until next time!

Bioshock Infinite

First game update on The Hungry Blog folks! feedback appreciated. This is the gameplay trailer for Bioshock Infinite. I personally have high expectations for this game based on the trailer. Stunning visuals and good looking gameplay. Interesting environment, not done before, interesting gameplay. Overall it should be good. I never actually played Bioshock 2. I played the first one and after seeing this I'll likely be picking up this one as well.
Happy gaming and eating!


In class for the day again. Them after class I have to run to the ferry. Will likely update later tonight. Thinking of making another blog related to game reviews as well ad upcoming games and thoughts. Or I could combine it into this blog. Give some feedback on what idea you like better. Another update soon, see you then!

Quesadilla Recipe


Large flour tortillas
Grated cheese - either mild or sharp cheddar, or Monterey Jack
Olive oil or grapeseed oil
Sliced mushrooms
Green onions
Black olives, sliced
Fresh tomatoes, diced
Chicken pieces
Apple cider vinegar


1 Heat a large cast iron frying pan to medium high heat. Add a small amount of oil (about 1/2 teaspoon) and spread it around the bottom of the pan with a spatula (you could use butter as well). Take one large flour tortilla and place it in the pan. Flip the tortilla over a few times, 10 seconds between flips. Air pockets should begin to form within the tortilla. 
2 When pockets of air begin to form, take a handful of grated cheese, sprinkle over the top of the tortilla, making sure that the cheese does not land on the pan itself. Add whatever additional ingredients you choose - green onion, sliced mushrooms, olives, tomatoes, etc. If you would like your quesadilla to be a chicken quesadilla, add some diced cooked chicken. Take care not to layer on the ingredients to thickly - this is a quesadilla, not a quiche.
3 Reduce the heat to low and cover the pan. The cast iron pan should be hot enough by now to have plenty of residual heat to melt the cheese and brown the tortilla. If the quesadilla begins to smoke too much, remove from the heat. After a minute, check to see if the cheese is melted. If not, return the cover and keep checking every minute until the cheese is melted. When the cheese is sufficiently melted, use a spatula to lift up one side of the quesadilla and flip over the other side, as if you were making an omelette. The tortilla should by now be browned slightly. If it is not browned, turn the heat up to high and flip the quesadilla over every 10 seconds or so until it gets browned. Remove from pan and cut into wedges.
To make the lettuce to accompany the quesadilla, thinly slice some iceberg lettuce. Sprinkle some cider vinegar on it and some salt.
Serve with the lettuce, salsa, sour cream, and guacamole.

One of the simplest, and most delicious snacks I've had.

Very simple to make, this recipe really doesn't take too much time or effort. Great for when friends are over or just to snack for yourself. By far one of the better tasting quickly made snacks out there. I love these little guys and like to make them at least once a month. Next update will be coming soon! Stay tuned.
