More than once I’ve brought one home and used my thinnest, sharpest kitchen knife to slice that caramel off.

When I wanted to do the rape scene, I explained to [Mara Lorenzio] that I was going to hit her and rape her. There was no emotional relationship between us, because I had put a clause in all the women’s contracts stating that they would not make love with the director. We had never talked to each other. I knew Read more

Lynch is extremely male gazey, and seems to lean toward a quiet sort of lasciviousness in his personal life. But that seems to be about it. Nothing overtly concerning, criminal, or offensive.

Orange County, CA here. TP and paper products are here but a bit more sparse than prepanic, and hand sanitizer is plentiful (although the amount limits are still posted, not actually necessary.) I had to go to 3 different stores to find egg whites (maybe we all decided to do meringues at the same time.) Read more

Clorox wipes and paper towels are still very hard to find in my area in the NE. Toilet paper has made a comeback, as have hand sanitizer and hand soap finally.

Regularly unavailable here (Central CA) are cleaning supplies: anything for the kitchen with bleach in it, Lysol spray, etc.

Google: NYT choc chip cookie recipe. Now, forget what it says about mixing bread and cake flour. too much hassle. 17 oz AP is just fine. Also, swap the amounts for the white and brown sugar. you want 10oz white and 8oz brown. For crispness. Also, you need 16-17oz of chocolate. NOT 1.5 lbs. I know, I know, but with Read more

Vienna hot dogs are objectively the best. But deep dish pizza... man I can only handle it like once a year. Even though flat and deep dish are all the same ingredients, deep dish feels like I just ate a square foot of cheese that is turning to concrete in my guts.

Additional Chicago native who has since moved to the coast that will absolutely back this up. Try a freshly made Chicago Classic from Lou Malnati’s (buttercrust and all) and see if you change your mind like Jon Stewart. Lou Malnati’s also has some great thin crust pizza as well. Read more

It’s not much different than when my mother shaking her head at Black people “actin’ the fool”. They make us all look bad.

That doesn’t really solve the problem of kids having fake IDs or misrepresenting themselves on the internet, as both instances happen all the time. However, if it seems too close to call he could just avoided the trouble by going home and jerking off and that would have very easily solved this problem. Unless he was Read more

I feel like “pull my finger” is an Uncle joke more than a dad joke, along with finding a quarter behind your “dirty” ear.

This is very true. I use more than that, but nowhere near 100lbs. Books like Flour, Water, Salt, Yeast by Ken Forkish would have you using 100lbs to feed your starter every year, and that’s because his recipes are huge, and he expects you to be baking almost every day (i.e. no refrigerating your starter).

I’ve been to sushi restaurants (well before the pandemic) where you order off the menu, but with a similar distancing twist. The lone chef makes it in the center of a long lozenge-like table and puts it on a conveyor belt and it eventually comes around to you. You keep your empty plate because its size and color Read more
