    This TikTok chef cooks food using hotel appliances

    During the pandemic, many people have wondered whether it is safe to visit a hotel. Is one kind of hotel safer than another? Does the hotel’s ventilation system matter?

Randles’s TikTok cooking videos from his two-week quarantine stay at the Gec Granville Suites Hotel in Vancouver have gone viral thanks to their unsettling use of hotel room appliances.

    There was a time when, if you told people you were planning to raise your baby vegan from the get-go, you’d be met with raised eyebrows or even indignant comments. How would your child get enough protein and nutrients? Wouldn’t they have deficiencies? (Annnnd this is why we don’t always share our child-rearing plans with others, right?) These days, with the increasing popularity of plant-based diets, it’s far more accepted to bring your child up on a diet free of animal products. In fact, according to a 2016 position paper from Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, appropriately planned vegetarian   Read More

    Dorie Greenspan’s Amazing New Cookie

    Good morning. Dorie Greenspan introduced me to the mystery novelist Louise Penny this weekend, in a delightful column in The New York Times Magazine that begins in Penny’s fictional Three Pines, a village in Quebec “with a good boulangerie; a bookstore that smells like tea and flowers; a bistro with an excellent chef; and a community of fascinating eccentrics.” Penny’s hero, Chief Inspector Armand Gamache of the Surêté du Québec, appears to be one of those brilliant, gentle investigators in the vein of Martin Walker’s Benoît Courrèges, locally known as Bruno, Chief of Police. And, as with Bruno, food plays   Read More

    Are Pecans Good for You? Here’s What Nutritionists Say

    Pecans: A healthy nut The rich and buttery goodness of pecans makes for an indulgent ingredient in sweet treats, or as a garnish. At least that’s where pecans traditionally land—in pecan pie and on sticky buns. But maybe that’s why we’ve overlooked pecans as a healthy nut, thinking they should be eaten sparingly or only as a special treat. It’s time to give pecans a second look because they actually contain many good things that are healthy for us. They’re already getting more attention as vegan, vegetarian, and keto dieters look for plant-based protein sources rich in   Read More

    Prince George’s restaurants must expand healthy kids options under new law

    “We have all looked in the mirror and seen some things we did not necessarily like,” County Council member Sydney J. Harrison (D-District 9), who sponsored the menu bill, said at a recent meeting. “Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time.” Harrison said in an interview that he has long been frustrated by the saturation of unhealthy chain restaurants in Prince George’s — which is in the top bracket of counties nationwide for density of fast-food establishments.
