Sunday Stuff

My go-to pizza dough might have been replaced.

Like knowing where your food comes from? You'd probably appreciate radical transparency in your wardrobe too.  

Banksy's latest work takes on the meat industry -- with puppets.

More lip-syncing! An oil ship crew performs "Africa" by Toto. Bet you bob your head.

Amy Poehler and Tina Fey and lots of gifs -- a trifecta of awesomeness.

I need to go to New York next year just to ride around in a driverless taxi and hum the theme song to the Jetsons.

Yup, I'm completely biased. But there truly are so many lovely things to discover at Food52 (and not just at Provisions).

In this case I stumbled across a cardamom chai recipe from Amanda, and fell head over heads in love with this mortar and pestle and tea strainer. Neither one of them will be gracing my kitchen anytime soon, but oh are they nice to admire.

Ingredients: Fresh Coriander Seeds

When our cilantro went to seed in the garden this year, I left it alone, hoping it would re-seed itself. But then I saw the bright green fresh seeds, and I decided that I needed to cook something with them instead. I made leek fritters, and while the coriander seeds added a great flavor, the texture contrast was too much - I think I'd crush them first next time. Somehow I missed two recipes on 101 Cookbooks using the seeds, so those are on my list to try next summer.
