No-Bake Icebox Cake Recipe, For A Scorching Summer Day

This creamy, no-bake icebox cake (technically a carlota de limon), only requires five ingredients. It’s bright with fresh lime and as easy to make as it is to eat. A charlotte (or carlota) is the perfect kind of dessert for the summer. It’s close to a trifle in that it is composed of layers of luscious ingredients, and requires no baking. Emphasis on no baking. Cookies, breadcrumbs, and biscuits are the “cake” components that work between layers of custard, cream, or jam (or all of them). Becau...

RECIPE: Swedish Cinnamon Buns Worth Turning On The Oven In Summer For

This recipe for Swedish cinnamon buns comes from Michelin starred chef Emma Bengtsson of Aquavit. They’re so delicious you’ll be tempted to turn on your oven no matter how hot it’s getting outside.

But when I woke up, I had a DM from my friend Jonathan with some data about the content on AVC over the years and got excited to share it and did. A colleague reminded me about doing the Sum...

NYC Tech Companies: Please Consider Participating in Summer Bridge

NYC’s Summer Youth Employment Program is the nation’s largest youth employment program, historically connecting NYC’s neediest young adults (between the ages of 14 and 24) with a paid work experience every summer.

In response, the City and State and over 50 nonprofits have come together to design the Summer Bridge program for summer 2020. Summer Bridge will provide low-income NYC students with City and State-funded pro...

"This is a golden moment for the movement known as tactical urbanism."

"More than 200 cities have already announced road closings in response to the coronavirus pandemic. Thousands of cities have yet to act in any bold way, however. If they do not, they may miss what could be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.... Cities are finding they can make bold moves to accommodate all the new bikers and walkers because the drivers who would normally object to street closings are hunkered down in their homes.... Most of the road closures announced so far have been billed as te...

Levain not ready

Levain not ready Submitted by melissad1997 on June 19, 2020 - 12:31pm. Hi,I am new to this forum and sourdough and bread baking in general. I revived a dried starter from a friend earlier this month and made my first loaf. It was dense and didn't rise much but I think that was more on account of the process I used and the lack of experience I had. My second attempt was excellent. A recipient of one loaf described it as the best she's ever tasted. I got too ambitious and made a 3rd b...
