Chocolate Bottom Macaroon Cookies from Isa Chandra over at Post Punk Kitchen! I was just discussing macaroons with a friend the other day because macarons came up and I was lamenting the similar sounding names. Macaroons and macarons are totally different. Macaroons are the coconut clustery ones and macarons are those French meringue sandwich cookie things. They are nothing alike but they basically have the same name! CONFUSING!
I think instead of “macarons,” they should be called “technicolored mini-hamburger cookies.” I think the French will really like that.
Fox News comes to the vegan side! »
Am I in an alternate reality? Fox News totally jocks us! In a reasonable and complimentary way!: “Once mocked as a fringe diet for sandal-wearing health food store workers…. Today’s vegans are urban hipsters, suburban moms, college students, even professional athletes.” Now don’t get salty about the urban hipsters part, it’s alright in concert with the others.
The article talks about Skinny Bitch, Alicia Silverstone, and Michael Pollan, the health and environmental benefits of veganism, and the accompanying picture has a Post Punk Kitchen apron in the foreground. They even make a comment on the history: “Abstaining from animal products is an ancient practice found in cultures worldwide.” Yeah, bitches, I didn’t make it up!
The post was inspired by a recent study by the National Restaurant Association where 1,500 chefs put vegan entrees as number 71 on their list of 226 trends for 2011. That ain’t bad! WE ARE DOMINATING.
So, are you disturbed? Is your world collapsing? Should I start watching Fox News?
