The problem is that people can map fictional resistance movements onto opposite real life parties. In my college poli Sci class, both I (a known lefty) and the most conservative guy in class excitedly supported the idea of showing V for Vendetta. I guarantee the January 6 guys thought they were in an underdog resistance movement.

Week 24: Seasonal Ingredient 2 (self.52weeksofbaking)
submitted 2 days ago by Okokimup to c/52weeksofbaking

Original reddit post

Hi bakers! This week marks our second seasonal ingredients challenge. Showcase something that is in season where you live (or, barring that, something that is themed on the season it is where you live). If you're not sure what's in season where you are there are tons of resources online, or you might even hit a local farmer's market and choose something!

For example,,,

Simple Cherry Cake - Using fresh cherries which are currently in season in New York

Easy Kiwi Tart - Kiwi is in season in New Zealand

Lychee Baked Yogurt - Lychee (aka litchi) is in season in India now

More like the stoppable force meets the movable object.

This article is all the information I have.

It is, because I used yeast.

I just read that the original tollhouse recipe from the 70s had water in it, so I added some. Presumably that's the way Grandma would have been accustomed to them. Mom said these were one of her faves.

Recipe. My crust had yeast in it because I forgot the nature of the challenge.

Week 23: Celebration of Life (self.52weeksofbaking)
submitted 6 days ago by Okokimup to c/52weeksofbaking

Original reddit post

Hi bakers! This week's challenge is Celebration of Life, where we celebrate the life of a loved one by making something they love/d. This can be for someone who has or has not passed on. We'd love to hear about your relationship to this person and why you chose to make what you did.

Ordinarily I would post a few sample recipes here, but given that this is something so personal, I will forgo that this week.

Happy baking!

Pssh, look who's bragging about having three entire friends.

That is not accurate. Immigration right now is causing a variety of problems, including for those migrating. I recommend reading this for an explanation of the current issues and some independent ideas on how to solve them.

Thank you for your service.

I hate to be the annoying person who says "just Google it" but honestly there are a ton of videos about it, full of salacious stories that you'll enjoy much more than anyone typing out a response here. Therapists using the bathroom while talking to you is common, but the least terrible of the stories.

I go through phases with games. I always have a jigsaw puzzle game going. Right now I'm obsessed with Killer Sudoku. I occasionally play Mahjong 3D or one of the tap-out games.

Flatbreads are, shockingly, quite flat and thin. They are usually unleavened (no yeast or rising agents), although there are some exceptions like pita. They alsp typically do not use rich ingredients like butter or eggs.

Quick to make, healthy to eat, they can be a great side to soak up sauce, pick up a dip or sandwich some meat / veggies. Since they are thin, they can be made on a griddle or grill instead of an oven.

There are a variety of flatbreads across cultures. Try pita and for bonus points make gyros. Or make some naan on a skillet - and discover how easy and tasty a base for pizza it can be.

For something richer and more substantial, try these flaky scallion pancakes

Let us know what you'll be making this week and what you're going to pair it with for a full meal.

I made the mistake of not trying these when they were fresh. My mom did and thought they were great. I did not enjoy the following morning.

This is another of those creative weeks. The sky's the limit on what you can bake, and extra points if it looks like the sky!

You can try focaccia art of flowers. Or cupcakes decorated with piped roses. Use dried flowers or herbs to decorate a cake. Make a chocolate mud pie with gummy worms. A galaxy cake to celebrate the night sky or the Northern lights.

It's spring in the northern hemisphere, a walk on a nature trail or a trip to the beach may bring unexpected inspiration. Good luck with whatever you choose to bring to life!

Recipe

Made for eurovision, and it was a fail in every way. The cake was top flat to cut in 3 layers, the custard never set, and, as you can see, the marzipan cracked apart.
