Comment on nectarine, mascarpone and gingersnap tart by Virginia

In reply to Lisa. Ok, the short answer is YES, you can use all cream cheese and it’s delicious. Mine came out a little soft, but that’s because I added extra sour cream for a tangier flavor. I used Mi-Del gluten free gingersnaps for the crust (that’s all we could find in the supermarket) and that worked fine too — I notice a texture difference, but the flavor is great. I used the crystallized ginger because we all like it, and topped the tart with perfectly ripe peaches and peach preserves that ...

The Confusing, Ever-Changing, Strict (But Loose) Travel Quarantine For Employees

Conneticut’s Travel Advisory Quarantine has been among the most confusing of the orders to arise from the pandemic.  No doubt that it was not intended to be that complicated. But the last few weeks have had change after change made to the rules.  And then came the announcement last week that Rhode Island was on the list and suddenly, all the questions seemed that much more urgent. Rather than go through all the various permutations, I thought I’d summarize where we are today for Connecticut resi...

How America Can Get Coronavirus Contact Tracing Right

This article is part of TPM Cafe, TPM’s home for opinion and news analysis.  As the world learns more about the novel coronavirus, the value of rigorous contact tracing — the process of persuading potentially exposed people to quarantine — is becoming clearer. It’s one reason the U.S., a country of nearly 330 million, has suffered 150,000 deaths and counting, while only one of Vietnam’s 95 million people have died from COVID-19. The Southeast Asian country was quick to implement contact tracin...

Trump’s Racist Appeal To The Suburbs Is Backfiring

This article is part of TPM Cafe, TPM’s home for opinion and news analysis.  President Donald Trump has failed to build a physical wall between the U.S. and Mexico, but now he wants to build another wall — between America’s cities and their suburbs. In recent weeks he’s sought to stoke white resentment with inflammatory rhetoric directed at white suburbanites. But so far they don’t seem to be buying what Trump is selling. In a speech on the White House’s South Lawn on July 16, Trump warned tha...
