Brown Butter Pear Crisp Recipe | Two Peas & Their Pod
This was delicious! Flavors are amazing--I added pinch of salt and 1/4tsp ground ginger to the filling. I'm not sure why there were 2 TBSP cold butter needed for topping;I feel like it made the topping greasy and topping did not crisp up. I used 6 bartlett pears that were pretty ripe and juicy, the juices may have drowned the filling a little. Maybe use more like 1 TBSP cornstarch in filling next time. Overall very good.

Your Real Biological Clock Is You’re Going to Die – Hmm Daily
But this idea of certainty is a sham, a distraction, something to turn your attention away from the only truly certain thing, which is that your time will run out. If you intend to have children, but you don’t intend to have them just yet, you are not banking extra years as a person who is still too young to have children. You are subtracting years from the time you will share the world with your children.

Did we choose the age at which we would have children? What does it mean to choose? We use the language of autonomy to avoid thinking about powers that shape our existence. Our civilization is remarkably hostile to the needs of life, from the helplessness of babyhood to the frailty of old age. The system is set up for healthy, productive, independent individuals, and one absorbs the lesson that one should try to stay in this class as long and as securely as one can.

Comfort Baking: Why It's Important & How We're Practicing It
I still feel that it is in some way the transformational element of baking that speaks so directly to us; it is, after all, a belief in the possibility of transformation, of perfectibility, that both Eastern and Western cultures share. It may sound absurd to link our basic, hopeful sense of human purpose to the "menial" act of whipping up a cake, but I know, I feel, that the link is there. Moreover, why disparage the menial in the first place?

This "menial" act, we here at Food52 like to call comfort baking. We may be hard at work getting ready for the holidays, but we also make sure to set aside time for baking because it relaxes us, reassures us that there are certain things in the world that just make sense. And it's not just in the baking that we find comfort, obviously. Is there anything more welcoming than knowing that there's a cake waiting for you on the counter, ready to be eaten with a cup of hot coffee or tea?

even more perfect apple pie – smitten kitchen
I followed her recipe, increasing brown sugar to 5.5oz and white sugar to 2.5oz. Spices were good. I used 4# apples (fuji, rosalynn, gala, golden delicious). Thin slices worked well in deep dish EH pie dish and I like the maceration technique. I also strained and reduced the juices and added 2T boiled cider afterwards.

I FORGOT TO ADD THE TAPIOCA STARCH. I definitely need to make this again w/ the starch, it would have been perfect. I used my pie crust recipe (peach pie) and it was perfect. 75m/195ºF did the trick. Tent halfway through with foil and definitely place on top of a lined baking sheet to bake.

Mixed all together and kneaded for 5m on speed 4.

Green Chile Enchilada Recipe | Two Peas & Their Pod
Made second time 10/2018-- still really good! I used my salsa verde for enchiladas/chilaquiles recipe for the sauce (subbed 2 or 3 hatch chiles for jalapeño), cheddar, monterrey jack, and colby jack for the filling. Filling: one large diced onion, 4 large cloves garlic, 5oz spinach, ½ tsp cumin, salt to taste, pinch of ancho chile, 1 chopped hatch chile. Squeezed out excess moisture from filling and chopped well. Really good!
