I tested making no-knead bread so you have no need to!

My mom suggested I listen to his podcast “Milk Street Radio” and it has inspired me to be more creative in my kitchen. Also, I appreciate him showcasing the expertise of historically marginalized people and how respectful he is to women on the show. He is actually a good listener and you can tell he’s kind. I listened to him talk to the author of the Palestinian Table and he was so attentive and insightful. He also talked about how much he enjoyed learning about the culinary traditions of Myanmar and how the more we learn about a place the more we empathize with people. I know it sounds cheesy and I am paraphrasing but it’s been a nice respite from my usual gory true crime podcasts. Every time I listen I get inspired to be braver in the kitchen and he and  Kenji Lopez - Alt kept on talking about a recipe for “No Knead Bread” and how it is a game changer. After checking out the recipe at the NYT Cooking section I decided to give it a whirl.

This Will Be Our Year: New Year's Eve with Small Children

Now, I am a mother of a small child and the holiday is not about getting dressed up in a little black dress and seeing the most outlandish headpiece I can tastefully wear. Last year my son had an ear infection and we were traveling so my husband and I spent the night watching Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives. However, I think children should be excited about the New Year and learn about the transition. Mainly because not all years are great and I want my child to know you can move on with a new mindset and grace.
