How anyone cannot sympathize with that man and the millions like him is beyond me. He’s not asking for anything special, just to be treated with the same dignity and respect that every human being deserves, and he doesn’t know how to react to seeing that ripped away from an entire people time after time for the crime Read more

This is heartbreaking. We all need to support these small businesses that bear the brunt of this chaos. Read more

I *want* to say that Aimee is disqualified for picking the kitchen scale, because the rules said nothing electric, and while analog scales exist I’m 100% sure that’s not the type she’s using. But her list is too good, and lines up perfectly with my own essential kitchen tools, so she gets my vote. Read more

My mom passed before I realized how much I took her, and her recipes, for granted. My slight excuse f or the recipes is that I didn’t become interested in cooking until moved out of my hometown but still very much regret not knowing her more and more about her life. Anyways, I’ve been trying to reverse engineer some Read more

I went to a place in Inidanapolis a couple years ago called Sub Zero I think. IT had custards, creams, sorbets, and a couple other bases. You added flavors and mix-ins like at Subway or Marble Slab. They put them into thin metal bowls, put the bowls in a depression in their counter and shoot liquid nitrogen into the Read more

After my mom died, I got the recipe boxes and they are full of recipes. Of course, only a few are ever used. I got a message from my sibling asking for the recipe for mincemeat. I dug around and found three recipe cards. Mincemeat is only occasionally made and it a long process so whenever it was made mom added a date Read more

I live about four blocks from Gandi Mahal. While I am outraged at the actions of the police and think that serious systemic change needs to happen, I’m struggling to see how burning a diverse neighborhood accomplishes this. The library is destroyed. That’s been the hardest blow. The Town Talk Diner- with its (cursed?) Read more

My main lockdown shopping complaint is that I often can’t have breakfast for dinner without running out of eggs before I can pick up more from the Farmer’s Market. I am constantly doing math to figure out which pick-up day I need to order for, and whether baking or omelette for dinner will mess that up.

I’ve trying to nail down the sirecz (Slovak Easter cheese) my grandmother used to make every Easter. It’s a deceptively short recipe (dozen eggs, quart of milk, sugar, salt, and peppercorns) but she never really measured the sugar and salt. One of those “I know how much it needs” things. I’ve come pretty close, Read more
