A few recent events have reignited my love of coffee:

  1. Now that I am no longer pregnant, I am back to drinking two cups each morning (instead of one). That second cup is a surprising delight. Especially when we still had some of my sister-in-law’s coffee cake around. She adds chocolate chips to…
I was in the midst of writing my own ode to Weekend Coffee when KP did it. This makes a fine preamble.

Love this classic Coca-Cola soda fountain head and body. Also the Arabic that adorns it. Welcome to America.

(Pork and Chive Dumplings (Shui Jiao) Recipe | SAVEUR)
Just finished a pile of these for a lunar new year / superb owl / crummy weekend wrap “party” with an invite list two people long. My folding technique is abominable and I played loose with the filing (adding about 1/3 lb mushrooms), but I’m hoping they hold together in the boil.
I love a dumpling, but I never make them. I just don’t feel skilled with the folds. On new year’s eve with our best friends we made a bunch of dumplings and mine were the ugliest. I cannot decide if I made this batch to try to get better or just to revel in not getting any better at something for once.

SATURDAY! SATURDAY!

World’s slowest baker…

…starts the cake at 7:45, puts it in the oven at 9:15. I can whip a dinner in half an hour no sweat - give me 45 minutes and it’ll be all from scratch and dirty at least three pans - but I’m just…so slow at baking. On a lazy, safe, home Friday night, that’s okay.

An American Nut
Here is an intriguing hypothesis: nuts may have made our prehuman ancestors smarter. Smarter because the nut forms in a shell and our hominid forebears had to think a bit about how to extract it. Thought led to innovation. Innovation to nutrition. Nutrition to greater intelligence. That’s the idea, anyway. Granted, finding a stone flat enough to shatter a nut doesn’t really qualify as unique cognition—apes do it all the time. But not unlike the way a seagull, after multiple attempts, finally figures out how high to soar before dropping the clam, it required trial and error. Smash the nut too fiercely, whack it in the wrong spot with the wrong rock, and shell shards splinter into the meat. Get it just right, though, with the right rock on the right seam with the right pressure, and you’ve just opened a new chapter in culinary history. When the first nut was cracked, the history of eating, it seems fair to say, changed significantly.
