While I’ve always been a foodie, becoming a better at-home chef has been on the top of my to-do list for many years. Once the U.S. started shutting down in March, I decided it was the perfect time to get to work in the kitchen since I’d be spending more time at home.

While I love scrolling through Pinterest for fun recipes and following food bloggers on social media for inspiration, one way I was able to perfect my cooking skills in quarantine was with HelloFresh.

  • Earlier this month, the fast food chain White Castle announced it would begin using an autonomous fry cook robot, called Flippy, to reduce human contact in its restaurants.

  • The move is meant to reduce human contact with food amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • Flippy will start flipping patties at a White Castle in Chicago sometime this fall.

Growing up, watching cooking shows always felt so comforting to me. My Queen Ina Garten would shine down on me every afternoon from her Hamptons home, while Giada De Laurentiis would bring her Italian staples right to my living room. It wasn’t until I got older that I realized the representation in the food world isn’t even close to what it should be. And while I still bow down to Ina and Giada, they’re not representative of the culinary world as a whole.

These Black food bloggers, recipe developers, and content creators are sharing unique recipes and perspectives in an industry that tends to produce more of the same. Many of these recipes derive from a place of family, love, history, and acceptance. And they look and taste damn delicious too.

Charity

In apply, it does no such thing, preferring instead to siphon eighty two% of its donations into its solicitors’ pockets, and an excellent proportion of the remainder into their very own. Florida and Iowa have already caught up with their underhand practices, and the pair are at present banned from telemarketing in both state. Unless you want your cash to go towards lawsuits (it’s already coughed up $200,000 to Iowa, Florida, and Texas), take my advice and discover one other charity to assist… though ideally one on one other listing to this one.

Or so that you’d suppose… in fact, only three% of their donations truly make it into the hands of Vietnam Vets. The rest does a grand job of propping up the bank accounts of the foundation’s sleazy directors. The 2nd cancer research charity to make our list is the American Breast Cancer Foundation, a corporation … Read More
