Comment on s’more cupcakes by Anna

I made these and they were great. A few changes/notes: 1. Didn’t have time to make the frosting so I just put marshmallows on top and put them in the toaster oven, as others suggested. It was great! 2. I used light brown sugar because that’s all I had. I think it was missing a teeny bit of the graham flavor because of that. Oh well. Still delish. 3. I had lots of batter and overfilled the cupcakes a bit. Don’t do this! They spread a lot and the tops touched each other, so I had to cut their edge...

You can get pasteurized eggs at most grocery stores if you’re concerned, especially if you’re feeding anyone who is immunocompromised. But if you’re willing to eat a runny yolked egg this shouldn’t be a problem.

25 good tweets for people who hate Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day is kind of nice, but it's mostly a cloying, capitalist nightmare. It makes sense, then, that the anti-Valentine's Day community is a large and vocal one. V-Day skeptics aren't bitter; they just hate Russell Stover samplers from CVS!If you count yourself among the lukewarm this Feb. 14, you're not alone. There are loads of tweets from people who also detest the holiday on which a nonzero number of people will receive a Doritos bouquet. (To be clear, I am jealou...

Louis Rossignol: The Art of Handwriting

            Louis Rossignol (1694) was a master calligraphist. "Not all calligraphy is the same. In fact, this form of artistic handwriting can actually fall into a number of different styles. Essentially, there are three main of calligraphy: Western, Arabic, and Oriental. Within each style there, maybe several lettering sub-styles or hands. Louis Rossignol was instructed in the art of writing by Olivier-François Sauvage, the most reputable teacher of the time (who didn’t publish any copybook),...

Commercial radio ignored in Greatest Radio Shows list

The Radio Times has named what it considers to be the ’30 greatest radio shows of all time’ – but every single one is a BBC programme. The magazine’s new edition contains a six-page feature counting down the shows – from Radio 3’s Private Passions at number 30 to Desert Island Discs at number 1. But the feature has attracted criticism that no commercial radio shows are included. Former radio executive John Myers wrote on Twitter: “I’m sorry, but this is the most insulting and ill informed art...

Chris Pratt Responds to Ellen Page Saying His Church Is ‘Anti-LGBTQ’

After Ellen Page called his church “infamously anti-LGBTQ” in a tweet last week, Chris Pratt has responded by saying “nothing could be further from the truth.” Pratt posted a response on his Instagram story on Monday, defending the Hillsong Church, which he attends, by saying it was supportive of him during his divorce from Anna […]

Alicia Keys Wore A $15 Drugstore Foundation To The Grammys

More often than not, no-makeup makeup is a misnomer. We've learned it actually takes an enormous amount of prep to give skin a glow that looks natural — like the way Alicia Keys' dewy cheekbones seemed to pulsate light from the Grammys stage last night. We felt vindicated by the realization that the famously "anti-makeup" star was, in fact, wearing makeup, but the real shocker wasn't that she was wearing foundation: It was that the full-coverage formula she chose is not rich-person fancy (like ...

On the Smugglers’ Radar

“On The Smugglers’ Radar” is a feature for books that have caught our eye: books we have heard of via other bloggers, directly from publishers, and/or from our regular incursions into the Amazon jungle. Thus, the Smugglers’ Radar was born. Because we want far more books than we can possibly buy or review (what else is new?), we thought we would make the Smugglers’ Radar into a weekly feature – so YOU can tell us which books you have on your radar as well! On Ana’s Radar: First up, a co...

Comment on bodega-style egg and cheese sandwich by Anna

I used the cup of jo post to gently nudge my husband in the direction of a better/easier egg sandwich and he has truly perfected it (lots of butter, a shake of everything bagel seasoning). We usually give you a shout out when they are especially good :) You should be hearing a lot of “Deb! The best!!” from up in Albany NY

11 Year Old’s Best Tips for Disney California Adventure Park

I’m back to report on our dream trip to Disneyland! In this post, I Kalyra (aged 11) will be sharing our awesome time at Disney California Adventure Park (DCA), my favorite park at Disneyland Resort in Anaheim! If you haven’t read my other blog post about Disneyland, go read it here. We were at Disney for two weeks with a whole crew of 15 people – that’s Dad’s family.

Comment on baked buffalo wings by Anna

Made them on Sunday! They were super crispy and tasted just like “real” wings!. However, they dripped A LOT of fat over those 50 minutes, which burned in the oven, which created a smokey cloud in our entire house and set off the smoke detector. So head’s up about that, I can still smell it when I walk in the house.

Favorite Films of 2018

We continue our recap of the year in movies with a top 10 list, only a month late! Which, if you're a longtime reader, is actually a few weeks earlier than usual (this list is usually posted mid/late February, right before the Oscars), so progress!?

Nunc Dimittis

Luke 2:22-40   Oscar Wilde once said, “With age comes wisdom… Usually, elders are held to be more filled with wisdom than younger folks, although, Lord knows, older people can make mistakes every bit as well as younger people can. Generally, however, by the time we reach old age, the beginning of which seems to stay ahead of us with every year we live (at least in our minds), we will have acquired some wisdom. Often we wish the young folks follow our guidance, but each generation seems to hav...

The Presentation & Waiting for God

The next step after Jesus’ birth would be to present him for circumcision in the Temple eight days later according to Genesis 17:12. Circumcision was one of the constitutive elements of the covenant made between Abraham and Yahweh. After forty days were completed Mary and Joseph were to go to the Temple with their child for their purification and their son’s presentation. This was the law, according to Leviticus 12:4, because Jesus was the firstborn male. Each firstborn male was to be redeemed b...

Irresistible Dark Visions and Sentimental Longing in 'You Know You Want This'

If there's a common thread shared amongst experienced readers, it's a combination of understandable skepticism and acid-drenched cynicism. This hypothetical reader has been hurt so many times in the past. Promising literary flourishes between the pages of a gold-embossed book are set free into the world but already burdened by hype. More often than not, in a debut short story collection the story so loved or at least respected in isolation is weighed down by hype, great expectations, and ultimat...

Stacked-Up Book Thoughts: Another Week of Mixed Success

I don't know about your part of the world, but winter is here with a vengeance. One way I cope is to cheer myself up by buying new winter clothes. Which I did. But I'm not a style blog (I can hear my family and friends laughing), so I'll step away from thoughts of wool blazers and new jeans to what you really care about: what the heck did I read lately? My surprisingly busy January is winding down to sane levels (at least for the moment), but last week I managed only two audiobooks and ...
