Comment on whole lemon meringue pie bars by Chelsea

In reply to Regina. (1) For the crust, you can put the crackers in a ziplock/plastic bag and crush well before combining with the other ingredients. (Or any way of crushing cookies well and uniformly would work, I suppose). (2) For the filling, I think you either (a) want to find a lemon filling recipe that doesn’t use the lemon rinds and substitute that or (b) if you have a blender, you might be able to get away with that. (3) For the meringue, I’m pretty sure you can just use a whisk and whisk...

Bubba Wallace didn't suffer a hate crime. NASCAR still has a problem

Elliot Williams says if you only see the spectacle of Bubba Wallace being pushed around the track by White colleagues at Talladega, you might miss the deeper truth of how NASCAR needs to change -- and the recognition that even debating the presence of Confederate battle flags at major sporting events is indicative of how power and privilege have hijacked the most basic terms of the national debate on race. The FBI's findings don't change that.
