Chocolate babka, Kranz style, take II

Chocolate babka, Kranz style, take II Submitted by Skibum on January 25, 2019 - 11:44am. I found with my last bake, that by coating the dough with melted butter, then the chocolate filling, that as the dough rose in the proof and baking stages, it squeezed most of the chocolate to the top of the loaf.With version II, I omitted the melted butter and think it bonded better to the dough and this version has more veins of chocolate than the first bake. I also used a little more th...

Vintage Engagement Rings For The Unconventional Bride

One could argue the best love stories of all time have already been written — novels like Anna Karenina and Pride & Prejudice are prime examples. We’d say the same about engagement rings. Some of our favorite styles were commissioned well before the 21st century. (Just imagine the romantic histories that could be tied to each piece.) Of course, this is not to knock any contemporary designers who create that magic out of thin air. In fact, many of the modern design elements we're loving right no...

‘You Might Be the Killer’ Review: The Meta Slasher is Splattery and Wildly Witty [Fantastic Fest]

Brett Simmons’ You Might Be The Killer is not Cabin In The Woods 2.0, but that doesn’t stop stay-up-late genre manipulation from scoring uptempo playground thrills. Remember Fran Kranz? Drew Goddard’s lovable cabin stoner with an extendable, collapsing bong? Travel seven years into our future (from the 2011 release), and he’s lambasting horror norms once again thanks to a massively viral Twitter thread turned feature. Dead serious. You Might Be The Killer lifts from a satirical tweet exchange b...
