A New Year’s Announcement: Skill Up Skillet 1.2

Happy New Year, Geeks! Belatedly, anyway.

There are a few patch notes announcements regarding the future of Skill Up Skillet; step lively and listen!

Bug fixes:

  • Removed poll from right sidebar. To those who voted, thanks!
  • Removed seasonal snow from blog, because apparently we can’t have nice things. Like snow. (Send me a blizzard, please!)
  • Blog header image altered to reflect new posting schedule.
  • Blog icon redesigned from v. 1.0 to v. 1.2:

Version 1.0:

SuSIconNew - Primary
Was I on drugs when I made this?

Version 1.2:

Better! Faster! Stronger! Skillet-ier!

The SuS icon change is by far my favorite of the batch; all good art improves with age, right? Additionally, several new features have been added throughout the course of the year. Let’s discuss some of the most noteworthy changes…

Skill Up Skillet 1.2 Patch Notes

  • Added Feed Your Fandom menu on the right- This spiffy feature allows you to search for recipes based on personal interests: Minecraft? Absolutely. Super Mario? Of course; all at the click of your mouse! This feature is also perfect for planning a themed party (hint, hint).
  • Special Features page added. Want to see my quasi-award nominations? Interviews? Other blogs featuring my content? There ya go. Spoiler alert: The closer you scroll to the bottom, the more squee-worthy they get.
  • I spent a day making SuS Shrooms and decided to make a Social Media Shenanigans page. If I’m online, you can find all of my profiles there.
  • More Geek Eats directory added. Want more geeky recipes but can’t find it here? Ever hear the expression “If you can’t beat’em, join’em”? Check out more geeky food blogs to feed your addiction.
  • Recipe Nerf: Weekly recipes downgraded to bi-weekly recipes due to budget cuts. More on that here.
  • Geeky Gadget Reviews! Pending permission(s), more details to come.
  • Power to the people! Guest posting opportunities are now available. Want to share your recipes or articles? Give this page a read, then shoot me an email.
Advanced WordArt skills? Ohhh yeahhhhh.

Completely unrelated, congrats to Mckelodeon of Nerd•ily on celebrating one full year of blogging goodness. For those not in the know, she hosted a giveaway to celebrate the event and I was one of the lucky winners! I don’t care what your opinion is regarding Star Wars, look at these:

These gorgeous hand painted ornaments! I can’t pick a favorite. Can you?
Back view. Look at that attention to detail. Just look.
Also, do you know how much I love you for spelling my name correctly? You don’t even know.

Yes, I know it’s not food. No, I don’t care. Sometimes we need to stop adulting for five freaking minutes and have Show & Tell time.

Finally, kudos to Charlotte of Girly Geek Girl for adapting my waffle recipe with spectacular results. Glad you enjoyed them, and thank you for your support!

Coming Up Next: Assassin’s Creed Cookies (2/15). Because.



Remember, cooking IRL doesn’t have to be a Feat of Strength!

        Spawn, referring to The Boy’s spawn. Furkid, referring to our almost 3 year old puppy Luna. (Psst, if you like retro things I’m sure you’ll find a video of the furkid.)

  1. Greetings fellow blogger! In the ‘3 Days 3 Poems Challenge’, nominees shall post 3 different poems (This could be your own, or your favourite ones written by other poets. It doesn’t matter—the only requirement is that all poetry must be accredited unless anonymous.) for 3 days consecutively.

    You are one of my 3 nominees for the challenge today, so I hope you can kindly complete the challenge by enlightening the world with 3 poems!

  2. Show & tell is absolutely okay. I am a Star Wars fan (I may or may not have a Star Wars bathroom, nbd), so this is 100% acceptable in my book. I’ll have to dig through some of your recipes. I don’t cook much unless I find something I absolutely have to try, and what could I want to try more than random video game-themed food? (Nothing.)
