Most Recent local (cook!) book—and one I HIGHLY recommend for any Midwesterners—is The Sioux Chef’s Indigenous Kitchen, by Sean Sherman.
Kitchens of the Great Midwest is my favorite book I’ve read this year.
Can’t really think of any local lit.
I honestly can’t think of anyone from my current area, but I always liked reading Robert Parker’s Spenser mysteries for my New England stops, like Rein’s Deli or the infamous swing bridge in the city I used to live in.
Most recently, of course, I’ve finished Kitchens of the Great Midwest. Currently, I’m reading Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert and Still Waters by Viveca Sten.
I’m calling it now, your actual aesthetic is John Waters meets Rihanna.
GnRH modulating drugs have been around for quite a while, primarily being used in cases of precocious puberty, i.e. when puberty begins as young as 6 or 7. There’s also a condition known as Kallman Syndrome which is a congenital impaired functioning of GnRH or its receptor, and aside from certain developmental issues…
Children don’t actually medically transition. When you’re talking about single digit ages, it’s a purely social transition. Medication comes into play with the first signs of puberty beginning, at which point they take something called a gonadotropin releasing hormone agonist, which stops the production of luteinizing…
I can’t stop laughing at these:
The one thing I will miss about living alone is leaving the bathroom door wide open all the time.
I hate shoes/socks, so I always take mine off upon entering the house. Same at the homes of my family members.
People can, but I don’t hace a lot of people over, so it is kind of a moot point.
So I watched the special last week, as background noise to whatever work I was doing ... and Tig Nataro, who I had never seen (I’ve listened to a lot of comedy radio though) has been in every single dream I’ve had since.
Two nights ago, she had a bag of hats from the San Francisco Seafood Company, she opened them up to…
I didn’t actually get autocorrected but when I texted my brother the phrase “I’m working on your taxes” my phone anticipated that the word taxes was going to be “clitoris” even though I had never typed that word.
I don’t have any that beautiful, most of the autocorrects I suffer are in my little group chat and a lot are from the inability of our phones to accept Korean names. To the point that we gave up and now we just accept that there are singers called Dungeon, Hospital, Ringo, Donut. None of us can type either and my…
It was so sweet of him to try. I think it might make him a bit more appreciative of the work that I do in the kitchen nearly every day. :)
We spent a ton of time poring over recipes this morning, then had to stop at four grocery stores to get all his ingredients. FOUR. Then he cooked for approximately 1.5 - 2 hours.
I am of the opinion that cinnamon makes everything better!
I made Mexican Hot Chocolate brownies last night for a work event and I am never baking brownies without cinnamon again.
Yes! I lost serious pounds from post-break-up "too sad to eat" depression. By the next time I saw my ex and his best friend, I was feeling strong and looking hot. The best friend said "Dayum, girl! You lost a shit-ton of weight!" To which I replied (while holding eye-contact with the ex), "Yeah, I had a 180-pound…
