    ‘…During the lecture, titled "Coconut Oil and other Nutritional Errors," Karin Michels has made herself very clear with regard to dietary recommendations, and underlined that coconut oil is not healthy. Its superfood status had already come under scrutiny last year after the American Heart Association (AHA) updated its guidelines, which recommended that people avoid the saturated fatty acids found in coconut oil. Michels went a step further than to recommend avoiding the foodstuff, saying "coconut oil is pure poison" and "is one of the worst foods you can eat." There's no study showing significant health benefits to coconut-oil consumption. And,...

  • April Ryan Asks Sarah Sanders If Trump Has 'Thought About Stepping Down'

    At the White House press briefing Tuesday, American Urban Radio’s April Ryan asked White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders if President Trump has “thought about stepping down.” “With all of this turmoil, particularly last week, has the president at any time thought about stepping down before or now?” Ryan asked, as the press asked repeatedly about President Trump’s anger at the FBI raiding his personal attorney Michael Cohen’s office. April Ryan Vs Sarah Sanders "Is President Stepping Down" It's Ridicules“No, and I think that’s an absolutely ridiculous question,” Sanders replied, calling on another reporter. Ryan shouted over Sanders that...

    While enduring a ‘bug’ this week that left me unable to do much but sleep or sit in front of the TV, I happened upon Clarissa Dickson Wright’s series, ‘Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner’, which you can find on YouTube, and which is a really interesting history of how our 'three squares', and the ways we partake of them, have evolved over time. In the Lunch episode, she featured a pasty (yes, no 'r') crust design, executed by food scholar Ivan Day. This was so beautiful, I had to find the design, and know more about it. On the way, I...
  • Sarah Huckabee Sanders Ends 'Piegate'; Gives April Ryan a Homemade Pie

    it turns out the cake pie isn't a lie after all. After being accused of using a stock photo of a pecan pie by journalist April Ryan (in what was dubbed "piegate" and likely resulted in Ryan not being invited to the White House Christmas party), Sanders proved once and for all that yes, she can actually bake. Pretty well, as it turns out. In case you missed it, here was the original exchange, where Ryan insisted that the pie Sanders tweeted was not made by her.  Show it to us on a table.— AprilDRyan (@AprilDRyan) November 24, 2017 Golly. In the...

    Ryan tweeted Friday: “I am not trying to be funny but folks are already saying #piegate and #fakepie. Show it to us on the table with folks eating it and a pic of you cooking it. I am getting the biggest laugh out of this. I am thankful for this laugh on Black Friday!” Throughout Friday, Ryan interacted with some social media users who tweeted to Sanders tongue-in-cheek photos of cars, buildings and pools they claimed they built.
  • Rooney Mara Never Tried Pie Until Last Year (31 Years Old)

    We all know Rooney Mara is many things: an actress, “aloof” (her word), a romantic colonic-haver. But we had no idea that she was also a person who never tried pie before the age of 31, at which point she finally ate the dessert for an extremely long pie-related scene in a movie. During an interview with the Los Angeles Times, the star of A Ghost Story was asked about the scene, in which Mara’s character emotionally eats an entire chocolate-cream pie in silence while grieving the death of her partner. “It was such a unique way of showing grief,...

    I’m sure many of us have made the ubiquitous Patriotic Sheet Cake, with strawberries and blueberries; but I thought a pie would be a nice change from that – I especially like this rustic-looking round one, with rhubarb, from King Arthur; and can definitely see Betsy Ross making it: here’s a flag-shaped one, from Simply Recipes: grandmother only made potato salad in the Summer, and her salad is one of my great childhood food memories. I have a co-worker friend who makes it exactly the same: it was very plain – no eggs, nothing sweet – and that’s...

    I used to have an elderly neighbor who asked me once to make him a Butterscotch Pie for his birthday, and it became an annual tradition. Once, I added a caramel cage, and was surprised at how easy this is to do. Here is a recipe for the caramel, from ‘The Chef In Me’: following video from Worldwide Culinary Apprentice shows the technique; he makes it on the inside of a small bowl, but when I did it, I used a large bowl and drizzled the caramel on the outside; then I snipped the cage down so that it...

    While it might be the lesser of the two celebrated PIE days (there is also National Pi Day on March 14), it happens to fall smack dab in the middle of a major pie making season. Take away ice cream as a dessert choice and most people are either cake people or pie people. Or to put it another way, most people have cake or pie with their ice cream! Combine bumper crops from our gardens and fruit trees with a booming holiday season full of baked goods, cool weather and rosy-cheeked children; it’s time to tie on those apron...

    Especially at this time of year, I’m a fan of ‘finger food’ that can be made ahead, frozen, and ready in just minutes in the event of impromptu visitors. Nothing fits this bill better than the Gougere, a light savory ‘puff’ of cheesy pastry that goes wonderfully with cocktails and freezes very well. There are many variations on the Gougere, but this one is basic and classic: Last Thanksgiving, I took the advice of Freeper ‘boatbums’, and we dry-brined our turkey for the first time; it really was the best turkey we’ve had, even though we made the mistake...

    My word, what is this dark and vaguely sinister-looking pie you see before you? Well, I’ll tell you. It’s the world’s first Schadenfreude Pie, the pie to enjoy while you are reveling in the horrible misfortunes of others. Why is there a Schadenfreude Pie? Because after I wrote the headline for this entry, I wondered to myself, “what would Schadenfreude Pie taste like?” My guess: Dark. Rich. And oh so bittersweet.
