    When tomatoes are in season, there are up to 23 varieties in Oaxaca, said rising star chef Thalía Barrios García in an episode of the CNN Original Series "Eva Longoria: Searching for Mexico." García has made this hometown ingredient the star of one of her signature dishes. You can find García's delicious cuisine at her hip restaurants, La Cocina de Humo and Levadura de Olla, in Oaxaca City. Her Oaxacan-style heirloom tomato salad features an array of fresh, juicy tomatoes native to the region atop a beet puree. A drizzling of wild mint vinaigrette completes the dish. "Look at this!...

    (Last Updated On: February 6, 2023) NATIONAL FETTUCCINE ALFREDO DAY On February 7th, National Fettuccine Alfredo Day celebrates one of the world’s favorite ways to enjoy a plate of fettuccine. #FettuccineAlfredoDay Fettuccine alfredo enjoys a history as rich as its flavor. Created in 1908, fettuccine was made out of love and concern by an Italian restauranteur. Alfredo di Lelio’s concern for his pregnant wife’s lack of appetite caused him to put his talents to work. The birth of their first son depended on it. His recipe of noodles, cheese, and butter not only encouraged her to eat but she also...

    I’m sure you know there’s a massive egg shortage and egg farms keep burning down all over America. Eggs are now over $10 per dozen in many places. Meanwhile you keep asking yourself “Why is this happening, sure seems odd?” Well, there sure is an answer to that. Please read to the end and see the REAL reason WHY they don’t want us to have eggs! And it isn’t about the feed! What are Tractor Supply & Purina allegedly doing to the chicken feed? Credible online claims like this (she now feeds a goat mix) have emerged, corroborated by others,...

    A drink made of fermented horse milk is a staple in the diet of Mongolian herders. Researchers are uncovering the science of its production to better preserve this tradition.This article was produced for Meiji University by Scientific American Custom Media, a division separate from the magazine's board of editors. Nomadic life in Mongolia may offer inspiration as societies around the world strive to live more sustainably. Rather than drastically modifying the land for crops or pasture, herders move with their livestock seasonally to utilize natural grasslands that aren’t suitable for agriculture. “They don’t directly own the land, so a broader...

    It's a somewhat mysterious science, figuring out the factors that encourage — or completely hulk-smash — a good night's sleep. Of course, there's an entire scientific industry dedicated to figuring it out, but we're all prone to make our own hypotheses based on personal experience. Plus, John Mayer said it best: Your body is a wonderland…and sometimes there's no telling what's going to happen when you eat that chunk of cheddar moments before hitting the pillow. Ok, John Mayer didn't say that last part, but a company called Sleep Junkie is digging into this very specific situation. Sleep Junkie's website...

    A newborn super cow at a farm in northwest China's Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region. Northwest A&F University Scientists from China’s Northwest A&F University, located just outside Xi’an, told local media that they successfully cloned three “super cows” capable of producing 50 per cent more milk than the average Canadian Holstein dairy cow. The researchers took tissue samples from Holstein cows that produced high volumes of milk and used the “somatic cell nuclear transfer method” to clone them, according to the Global Times. This method of using body cells to create an embryo that is then placed into a surrogate...

    A fire at New Zealand’s largest egg producer has killed about 75,000 hens, sparking fears that a national egg shortage could worsen. The fire at a Zeagold farm broke out on Monday morning and had “taken better part of the day to contain”, a spokesperson for the company said. Twelve workers who were on site were “unharmed but very distressed”, the spokesperson said. Work was under way to assess how many hens had died, but Zeagold estimated it to be about 75,000. The fire may have ripple effects beyond the immediate demise of the hens, with concerns it may worsen...

    Environmental groups that have led litigation targeting the lobster fishing industry have been heavily funded by various liberal dark money groups that don't disclose their individual donors, a Fox News Digital review of tax filings found. The organizations - the Center For Biological Diversity, Conservation Law Foundation (CLF) and Defenders Of Wildlife - first filed a joint federal lawsuit against the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) in 2018, arguing a rule issued by the agency years earlier failed to properly protect the endangered North Atlantic right whales from lobster fishing equipment. In April 2020, a federal judge ruled in favor...

    The Biden administration's efforts to turn up the regulatory heat on gas stoves are drawing bipartisan opposition from a pair of senators who have introduced a bill to block a ban on gas stoves. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee Chairman Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., introduced the Gas Stove Protection and Freedom Act last week amid the Biden administration's discussions of proposed restrictions on gas stoves. Their bill would prohibit the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) from advancing regulations on existing or new gas stoves that would ban their use or "would otherwise substantially increase the...

    ST. LOUIS, MO — After a brisk winter jog today, local man Donald Vance decided that perhaps obesity isn't so bad after all. "My diabetes meds taste pretty good, come to think of it," said Mr. Vance, doubled over in agony. "Love handles are just more of me to love!" Mr. Vance had set out for the morning jog with high hopes, having bought thermal workout shirts and leggings. "I felt great for about fifteen seconds. I was like Rocky Balboa, training in Russia," said Mr. Vance. "Then my lungs started hurting, my eyes watered up, my hands went numb,...

    American Thinker ^ | 4 Feb, 2023 | Scott Hamilton
    What better way to ensure a sustainable future than by implementing a new and glorious circle of death? The WEFers have a problem on their hands. Although they want a drastic reduction in the Earth's population, providing final care will, especially via natural gas or electric cremations, cause significant carbon emissions. A gas cremation will release anywhere from 284 to 568 pounds of carbon dioxide per person. Furthermore, the fuel required for the average cremation is comparable to putting 29 gallons of gas in your F-150. When you start multiplying these numbers by the numbers they want gone, you might...

Creamy frosting separates the layers and often complements the spice of the cake. Cinnamon and nutmeg go well with the natural sweetness of carrots. Many bakers...
