  • 'It Is Soul-Crushing!' Clinton Campaign Chair John Podesta on President Trump

    Der Spiegel ^ | May 05, 2017 06:10 PM | Klaus Brinkbäumer and Britta Sandberg
    In an interview six months after the election, Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta, discusses the night of his candidate’s defeat, the mistakes made on the trail and Donald Trump, who he says is “unfit and unqualified” to serve as president. […] Spiegel: Mr. Podesta, the election took place only six months ago. For many, though, it seems like an eternity has passed since Barack Obama’s presidency. Are you suffering? Podesta: Yeah, Donald Trump has given a new meaning to dog years. The only constant seems to be his unpredictability. America lives in a state of constant turmoil. There were...

    Today’s recipes are Italian soups! This is in honor of my Nonna (Italian grandmother), who strangely enough, couldn’t cook anything except soup. Her soups were out of this world good. Unfortunately, I never watched her make one to learn her secret. I know she didn’t make her own stock, so that wasn’t the key. She was rather a lazy cook, so I’m guessing it had to do with some Italian ingredients that we can’t get here, or I don’t know about. So these recipes are ones I’ve found and probably modified to suit my tastes. Sorry for the lack of...

    Hi to all! This is the weekly cooking thread for this weekend, and I am one of the substitutes for Jamestown1630. I'm sorry I didn't start yesterday, but, well, how do I say this?? I forgot. And I am sorry. But here we are. What is going on in your kitchens this week? There are a lot of sports on TV this weekend so I decided to make a bunch of fried chicken, great to eat right out of the fryer, but also good cold. I bought a bunch of winglets and some drumsticks. I took a glass 13x9 pan,...

    Hello fellow cooks! This is Cottonball, your 2nd substitute thread poster for Jamestown1630, along with Yaelle. I decided to indulge in one of my favorite hobbies for this week’s foodie thread - I LOVE making bread. Just like growing plants, making bread for me is an act of love and creation – the little yeasties making the flour and water into something magical always excites me and gives me a feeling of accomplishment. Seeing the dough rise and take shape is like giving birth (without the pain or medical staff). I wasn’t always able to make edible bread – I...

    Good morning, happy Friday the 13th. Cotton Ball and I are the substitute cooking leaders for our dear Jamestown1630, who is nursing someone close to her back to health. May he be having a uptick in health this weekend, JT! Anyway, no creepy morbid Friday the 13th recipes for me. But in my area (Southern California) we've had chilly weather and rain, for us quite delightful. So I'm thinking warm, homey slow cooker meals today. But as you know, we here are open to EVERYTHING food and food related. Today I'm going to make a white bean chili recipe in...

    I'm really not much of a cook at all. I don't have the patience or the concentration. It's therefore no surprise that I would fall back on cooking eggs - fried, boiled, or poached. When I fry the eggs, I prefer to use bacon grease, but butter works just fine. So does olive oil if I'm in a healthy mood. I recently ran across a scrambled eggs recipe that used Worcestershire sauce: You Never Knew You Needed Scrambled Eggs With Worcestershire Sauce I tried it and I liked it. The link led me to a couple other links: This Is...

    Serial trophy hunter Aryanna Gourdin poses proudly alongside a majestic giraffe she has just gunned down in a picture that sparked a furious ­backlash from animal lovers. But the 12-year-old, who has a string of kills to her name, defiantly vowed never to give up shooting wild beasts and churned out the disputed claim that blood sport like this is a conservation measure that stops the decline in big game numbers. Aryanna shares the images of her and each ­dead creature on her Facebook page complete with captions bragging about the deaths, despite insisting she “loves” animals. In one sick...

    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — General Mills is expanding a flour recall issued over a possible link to an E. coli outbreak after four new illnesses were reported. The recall announced Monday covers several varieties of Gold Medal and Signature Kitchens flour produced on certain dates through February 10. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has said flour produced at a General Mills plant in Kansas City, Missouri, is a likely source of the outbreak, which so far has sickened 46 people in 21 states. The CDC says 13 have been hospitalized, and one person has developed a type of kidney...

    Last weekend, I found one of Chef John's new posts, where he did a 'Green Gazpacho'; I thought it might be interesting to those of you who have gardens and access to lots of fresh herbs – it looks like a delightful Summer first course, or accompaniment to a light sandwich for lunch. On his blog, the Chef says that he wanted to call it “Burrata in a Swamp,”; but he says that the 'swamp' bit didn't pass the 'wife test' – so, Green Gazpacho it is. Here is his video of technique, and the ingredients and measurements are on...

    With sizzling temperatures claiming more than 300 lives this month in India, officials said they were banning daytime cooking in some parts of the drought-stricken country in a bid to prevent accidental fires that have killed nearly 80 more people. The eastern state of Bihar this week took the unprecedented step of forbidding any cooking between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m., after accidental fires exacerbated by dry, hot and windy weather swept through shantytowns and thatched-roof houses in villages and killed 79 people. They included 10 children and five adults killed in a fire sparked during a Hindu prayer ceremony...

    “For the past 10 years, bread has been under attack.” Professor Zhou Weibiao, a food scientist at the National University of Singapore, isn’t wrong. According to current nutritional thinking, white bread is digested too fast, spikes blood sugar levels and is linked to obesity. In short, it’s the enemy of healthy eaters. Weibiao’s answer to this problem? He’s invented a purple bread. Rich in cancer-fighting antioxidants, digested 20 percent slower than regular white bread and made entirely of natural compounds, it could be the first superfood of the baked goods world. The great bake off A long-time staple food, bread’s...

    It's been so cold this week, I come home tired and wanting comfort food. Hot sandwiches are quick and easy, and hit the spot on cold days. I've had a recipe in my collection for many years that was obviously photocopied from a book; but I can't remember which book. I know there used to be a Mealey's restaurant in Maryland, not far from Frederick, and perhaps that's where this recipe originated. Not gourmet food, but it's fast and sticks to your ribs: Mealey's Old Fashioned Club Sandwich Sauce: 2 T. Butter 2 T. all-purpose Flour 1 C. Milk 1...

    If you're a white-tailed deer in Milwaukee County, odds are you live in or near the county's park system. The 15,000 acres of parks and parkways provide more than 90% of the deer habitat in the county, according to an assessment by the Department of Natural Resources. That's a lot of land, but not enough for a deer to hide in. Especially if you're a big-racked buck like "Bow Tie." Bow Tie was a very well-known white-tailed deer that was frequently seen in Milwaukee County. Randy Crawford of Wauwatosa is a wildlife photographer and hunter who enjoys viewing and capturing...
