Lakers’ Quinn Cook keeps showing passion for his hoops roots

Quinn Cook’s online cul-de-sac is bursting with challengers. For the few weeks in April when Cook hosted a nightly marathon Instagram live feed, it drew all levels of players. He would air live feeds chatting with Kevin Durant and Victor Oladipo, All-Stars who hail from the same region in Maryland where Cook grew up. But he also would allow cameos from D.C.-area streetballers, whose names are known only in gyms and playgrounds, and who inevitably want a piece of him. It matters little that the L...

Comment on any-kind-of-fruit galette by Alison Manthei

I made this today using a combination of fresh raspberries (3/4 c), blackberries (3/4 c), and strawberries (2 c) – the colors are beautiful. I didn’t chop the raspberries, but did the other fruit and added the full recommendation of tapioca flour. The mixture was pretty juicy when it sit, so I didn’t pour all of the liquid into the galette. For the crust, I only used 1.5 TBS of water. I can’t imagine using a full 3! It’s been very humid here in the midwest though with rain the past few days, so...

Library Windowing - Penguin Australia

On 1 March 2020 Viking published the paper book version of Australian Historian Geoffrey Blainey's "Captain Cook's Epic Voyage". On 31 March 2020 Penguin EBooks published the Kindle e-book edition of the same work. The Audible edition was also released on 31 March 2020. It appears that Paper and Audiobook versions are available in Australian libraries, but not the e-book version. So it appears that the publishers strategy in this case has been to release the paper version initially, with Aud...

Happy Camper

Only once in my life have I attempted any form of overnight camping. At five or six years old, eyes full of stars and head full of dreams, my parents pitched a tent right in the backyard, no more than a few feet from our back door. Safe from the true elements but still firmly planted in the “great” outdoors, it was an ideal way of testing the waters. It was all perfect. My sister and I made shadow puppets after the sun fell, giggling long into the night. We rolled around in sleeping bags, despit...

Hello. Cook here from Toronto, Canada. Submitted by Pablo Carranza on May 23, 2020 - 12:33pm. Hey there. Wanted to intro myself as I have been googling bread queries for the last while and The Fresh Loaf keeps popping up.

Recipes: The Jewish holiday of Shavuot can feature flexible dishes with cheese and fresh produce

The Jewish holiday of Shavuot begins on Thursday evening, May 28. Many families celebrate the holiday with dairy foods. Rich, cheese-filled pastries and cheesecakes are often on the menu. Since shopping is more complicated these days, we decided to settle for simpler dishes that can be easily modified, so that if you don’t have an ingredient, you can substitute another. Our Mediterranean-inspired vegetable salad, for example, is accented by a choice of tasty toppings, such as Brie cheese, walnut...

Why ‘Amy Schumer Learns to Cook’ Is Vital Quarantine Viewing (Column)

Something about TV made in quarantine has felt at times deflating. Late-night talk shows, for instance, have been attempting to stick to familiar rhythms that, absent audience reaction, hang somewhat awkwardly in the air; the delay over Zoom or equivalent hardly helps matters. “Saturday Night Live’s” attempt was notable more for the admirable ambition of […]

Bar None

As the antiquated idiom goes, when it rains, it pours. When in drought-stricken California however, what falls from the sky is not a deluge of precipitation, but of citrus. Yes, you heard me right: Fruit is showering the city streets at this very moment, heavy with juice and blown asunder by the most gentle gusts of wind. Every variety you can imagine, from the average lemon and lime to more exotic mandarins, yuzu, pomelo, even Buddha’s hand litter the pavement. Dash out for a quick walk around ...

Recipes: Here are 3 delicious dishes that are cheap to make

You may remember the recession in the early ’90s, an economic decline that lasted about a year. It was during that time that I asked readers who had survived The Great Depression to participate in a recipe contest.

What I received were remembrances of what each contributor described as one of the best times...

Suicides not Reduced by Laws Restricting Gun Owners

Suicide Mental Illness U.S.A. –-( It is only the last decade or two when those who want a disarmed population in the West have started to stress “suicide” as a reason for disarming the population.  The early pushes for population disarmament were predicated on the excuse of reducing violent crime, particularly homicides. The actual motivation had nothing to do with crime. The original motivation was to reduce armed rivals. In New York, to reduce armed resistance to organized cri...

Air Fried Pickles

I have to admit, I haven’t pulled out my air fryer in a little while. No real reason.

Lately, I have been experimenting with air fried pickles and I am happy to report I have a recipe/method I feel works best (sharing below).

‘Sweetbitter’ author Stephanie Danler talks ‘Stray,’ her new memoir of addiction and love

Stephanie Danler could have written anything she wanted after the critical and commercial success that greeted her debut novel in 2016. “Sweetbitter,” a coming-of-age story about a young waitress at a fancy Manhattan restaurant gobbling up life — and love and other drugs — didn’t just end up a bestseller or on that year’s best-of lists.

California’s new coronavirus dine-in guidelines spell big shifts for some restaurants

Southern California restaurateurs are eager to reopen for dine-in customers and they mostly welcomed the guidelines Gov. Gavin Newsom handed down on Tuesday, May 12.

You’re serving family-style off one platter. Happy hour with your buddies? You’re sharing a pitcher of frozen margaritas and a pile of ...
