I love to see a young girl go out and grab the world by the lapels. Life’s a bitch. You’ve got to go out and kick ass.

I’ve always treasured empathy as the particular privilege of the invisible, the observers who are shy precisely because they sense so much — because it is overwhelming to say even a single word when you’re sensitive to every last flicker of nuance in the room.

Tell me if you think this is true: it is easier to accept defeat and try to make the wreckage look beautiful than to keep fighting and lose. It feels true to me.

Jamie Quatro, “Georgia the Whole Time” 

I read Quatro’s collection I Want to Show You More in one sitting yesterday afternoon. Highly recommended for those who enjoy vivid, moving stories about loss, decay, spirituality, and sexuality set in the South (with a dose of dark humor).

St. Patrick’s day brunch: The Marrows Ginger Molasses Cake via the NYT

I emailed mocahill because I do not bake very well. Improvisation is a large part of what makes my dishes unique. And baking does not like my house team. -rimshot-

Mo started off with emptying a bottle of oatmeal stout into a sauce pan with molasses. It made pretty swirly patterns and bubbled up when they were combined. Meanwhile ramseyesscom sifted the dry ingredients together. A stand mixer is highly recommended for this recipe because you are required to mix for a total of 15 minutes as you add ingredients. I really loved the part where Mo buttered the inside of a bundt pan and smattered coarse sugar into it. It has a sugar crust with hefty, dense bite with a ginger kick. Well worth the 55 minute cooking time!

*By the way, you live in the New York area and can bake—-let’s be friends. I’ll trade you slow cooked meats!

This was, quite possibly, the most delicious baked item I have ever made. Bake this before the summer hits and you don’t want to step within ten feet of your oven.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! This is my 2nd St. Patrick’s day menu, am I an honorary Irish-Filipino yet?

Here’s a porny preview of my brunch yesterday. My friends Mo & ramseyesscom came over to make the amazing cake you see here. We did jigs when I surprised them with DIY Shamrock Shakes. I made a bunch of extra food for my friends at OTB Live, too. 

Coming up this week:

I will forever chase the dream that was that Shortcut Corned Beef. Internet, you have never tasted something so grand. Also: I’m putting beet relish on everything from now on, forever and ever. Jenn is a culinary wizard.
