    Today is Raj’s birthday, and that means only one thing around here: there will be cake. At one time that meant Mom’s Mystery Cake, which was about as simple as a homemade dessert could get and delicious when served with copious amounts of whipped cream. There are many more complicated variations of “fruit cocktail cake” out there but if yours looks more like a traditional cake with identifiable chunks of fruit in it you’re not doing it right. It should be more of an amalgamated pudding like creature. Mom’s Mystery CakeIngredients     1 (16 ounce) can fruit cocktail in heavy...

    It is incredibly important to understand that as the weather turns bitterly cold in the north, people will begin to migrate south. This not merely cause the Greeks to become the Sea Peoples, but during the Year without a Summer in 1816 even in the States when six inches of snow fell in June and every month of the year had a hard frost, people began to migrate. The temperatures had dropped to as low as 40 degrees in July and August in New York City during 1816. People also called it Eighteen Hundred and Froze to Death and the...

    The Palestinians are up in arms, not for the first time, over what they see as Israels theft of what they claim are quintessentially Palestinian foods hummus and falafel. This is one more way to continue the narrative of Israel as a foreign body, stealing not just Palestinian land, but also stealing Palestinian culture, including its clothing, its keffiyeh, and its food. Heres the latest complaint by a Palestine Authority spokesman: Official Palestinian Authority television recently accused Israel of stealing falafel, hummus, and other Palestinian foods as part of a conspiracy against Palestinian heritage. The claim was made by...

    Toxic ideologies often start around family dinner tables. It's not just an uncle saying a racist joke, or a grandmother determining her xenophobic ideas as a part of her time. These comments seep into how we make decisions in voting booths, how judges rule in their chambers, how teachers guide students in school classrooms, how employment decisions are made, and how police react in high-stakes situations. After a year of relentless atrocities that dont always make for easy conversation at the dinner table, it's important to make Thanksgiving preparations beyond the tablescape and the menu. This year, I want you...

    Thanksgiving Day is approaching and we are spending the day at our son's house with his family. Our other son and his family will be there as well. Usually I bring the wine, some whites for the Ladies and Reds, for us. For the red I usually bring a merlot based Bordeaux from my modest collection. Problem this year: Included in the festivities will be my sons father-in-law, a very likable guy and we get along great. The issue is, he prefers his Red, with a couple of ice cubes in it. I cringe at the thought of ice going...

    VIDEO These smoked turkey wings turned out VERY spicy. Just the way I like them. Plus they are low/no carb so they help me to lose weight. After I tried them, my wife declared them to be too spicy for her. Me? I like to feel the heat. However, although I mentioned smoking them in addition to turkey for Thanksgiving, I better wait for another occasion since if my wife found them to be too spicy, her sister and her family will probably have the same reaction.

    I am working 2nd shift (1PM to 10 PM local AZ time) so I was running my errands in the late morning. When I spotted the Weinermobile, and the driver exiting, I saw he was going to have his lunch at Culver's, a place that doesn't even sell hot dogs, much less Oscar Meyer hot dogs. For those unfamiliar with Culver's, it is a fast food hamburger/chicken/fish/sandwich/custard joing that is headquartered in Wisconsin. Founf in the midwest, SE, and now SW. It is a couple of notches above McDonald's etc. in quality, presentation and cleanliness. It was also rated...
  • South Korea: The women of the Gwangjang Market

    The sun sets on a cool autumn Sunday afternoon but the action is just getting started at one of Seoul's oldest establishments - the Gwangjang Market. The century-old market began its life as the Joseon dynasty was coming to an end with merchants looking to counteract the increasing influence of their Japanese counterparts. It survived the Japanese colonial rule of the Korean Peninsula from 1910-1945, but part of the market was destroyed in the 1950-1953 Korean War. What survives today is a bustling market that offers traditional clothes and persimmon-dyed fabrics. Fresh fish, local meats, rice cakes, and huge vats...

    Six thousand people will be invited to make kimchi in downtown Seoul over the weekend at the fifth Seoul Kimchi Festival. The annual festival will kick off at Seoul Plaza and nearby Mugyo-dong area on Friday through Sunday, the Seoul Metropolitan Government said. People in Korea have traditionally made a large amount of kimchi before winter, so they can eat the fermented cabbage during the cold season when it is hard to get greens. Kimjang, the winter kimchi-making practice where families and neighbors gather to exchange labor and share food, is designated on UNESCO's Intangible Cultural Heritage list. During this...
