Creamsicle Sheet Cake

Rachel Held Evans was a progressive Christian writer who embodied vulnerability by dismantling her toxic evangelical ideas and then reassembling her faith in front of all of us. She listened to Jesus. She let herself be moved.

EASTER IS THE OFFICIAL LEMON CAKE HOLIDAY, I DON’T MAKE THE RULES.

Okay, I made that rule. But it’s TRUE, don’t you think? Don’t you want a giant, buttery, streusely, moist lemon cake for Easter? One that takes 30 minutes to make but looks kinda fancy?

Lemon Cake with Whipped Icing

Sometimes as a teacher you have these moments where your students transcend. They go up the stairs you’ve built but they don’t just reach the top: they’re suddenly flying, they’ve made their own wings, they’re higher than you knew they could go.

They’re higher than they even knew they could go.

Hot Butterscotch Pudding Poke Cake

Here we go again. A few folks on Twitter this week decided to gain some retweet capital by trotting out the familiar, “These food bloggers and the interminable STORIES before the RECIPE, am I right?! Just gimme the ingredients already” snark.

There are a lot of reasons this attitude is problematic: we spend countless hours creating recipes and can offer them to you for free precisely because our posts are long enough to include ads that pay our rent. These people are basically saying scrolling is too much payment in exchange for our labor. That’s pretty offensive.

I’ve also written about other facets of this topic: about food bloggers’ appropriate place in food media, and about how to decide if you should be using food blogs or recipe websites. But today I’m gonna make sure you understand why this critique is also misogynistic.

Cheddar Chex Mix Saltine Toffee

Go tell your kids right now that you love them the way God made them. That if they’re gay, if they’re nonbinary, if they’re transgender, if they’re bisexual, if they’re straight, if they dislike pickles — that you LOVE THEM that exact way, and that you want to know them for who they are whenever they figure that out.

If they’re not too young to know about boys and girls, they’re not too young to know about other genders. If they’re not too young to know about love stories between men and women, they’re not too young to know about queer love. Don’t make excuses about them being too young to understand what you’re saying; go talk to them. Raise them to know that you love them, whoever they are.

Don’t wait for them to come and tell you, or it could be too late.

Cheese Cracker Saltine Toffee

Okay, you’re gonna do TWO THINGS. I’m keeping it simple for you because I know you’re like me and when you have 85 things to do, you sit and eat olives out of the jar while binge watching Hoarders. So there are only TWO THINGS for you to do.

Easy Whipped Honey Butter (perfect for yeast rolls!)

Every now and then a kid drops a pencil box. Unlike dropping just about anything else in class, dropping a pencil box causes A Moment.

Everyone holds their breath. Everyone briefly evaluates the force of the fall — did it tip off, or was it knocked off? Everyone waits for impact and the subsequent, smaller impacts to evaluate the level of chaos that will ensue.
