    So we made that pasta recipe that has been floating around Facebook this week. Verdict: it’s really easy and tasty! Recommendations: be generous with the spices, add extra fresh basil too. Also, use 2 cans of Hunts fire roasted tomatoes.  @joligas #familydinner

    Mini Banana and Poppy Seed Bundt Cakes

    Sydney weather turned from being so hot and sticky to being cold and rainy. I love it because it gives me an excuse to bake and soak in the warmth that comes from my oven. 

    Anyway, the other day when I was standing at the BakeSoc stall, our president made these delicious orange and poppy seed cupcakes. I was looking at these cupcakes and remembered the time when I was in high school and wanted to bake something with poppy seeds. I wasn’t able to at the time because the school couldn’t find the poppy seeds at the supermarket, so I had a change of plans during my food technology lesson. Since then, I haven’t tried to use poppy seeds in my baking, until yesterday.

    "The floor was still giving in and the dirt was still going down, but I didn’t care. I wanted to save my brother. But I just couldn’t do nothing."

    Seffner, Fla. resident Jeremy Bush • Discussing the sinkhole that pulled his brother, Jeff Bush, into the ground Thursday night. While there were numerous people in the home at the time, Jeff was the only one sucked into the hole, which likely killed him. (Though Jeremy, in his rescue efforts, was nearly sucked in himself.) A sinkhole expert, Taylor Yarkosky, says that the limestone under the ground in Florida makes them particularly susceptible to such sinkholes. “You can almost envision a piece of Swiss cheese. Any house in Florida could be in that same situation,” he said. The porousness of the ground is caused by the high level of limestone—which is water-soluable—in the soil. (via shortformblog)

Please sign this White House Petition to mandate paid maternity leave. The deadline is tomorrow. I’d write all sorts of reasons why this is important, but the above graphic says it better than I could.
