Five Factor Testing - Custom Web & Mobile Development Company | DevMynd
"[To have] tests (and a testing process) that actually work for us, we need to reconnect with the underlying needs that originally drove us to write tests. Surprisingly, they aren’t really written down anywhere. Maybe it’s just assumed we know what they are, but I listed them out enough times for people to think I should just write a blog post and send them that. So here you go."

Sesame-Crusted Fish With Butter and Ginger Sauce Recipe - NYT Cooking
“This recipe came out of a 2005 kitchen cage match between Mark Bittman and the chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, in which Bittman, the home cook, sought to cook Chef Vongerichten's food more simply and perhaps just as deliciously. Judging by the quality of this particular dish, he succeeded.”
