It's the 6th anniversary of the universally beloved What Ya Got Cookin-Thanksgiving Edition, here on Midday. Last Thanksgiving, the rule of thumb was cancel, or keep it super small. COVID infections are once again on the rise, but lots of people, even those as young as five, have been vaccinated and boosted, so many more people are venturing back to the Thanksgiving table. Our mission here on Midday is simple: we've got three wonderful chefs at your disposal to share recipes and tips to help make your Thanksgiving dinner a delicious and memorable affair. John Shields is a chef and the proprietor of Gertrude's Chesapeake Kitchen at the Baltimore Museum of Art. He's also the host of Coastal Cookingon MD Public Television and PBS. John's latest book is The New Chesapeake Kitchen. Chef Damian Mosley is the creative spirit behind Blacksauce Kitchen, which you can find at the Waverly Farmer's Market and at their storefront on 29th Street in Remington. A little later in the show, we'll check-in with Debonette Wyatt, the chef and owner of My Mama's Vegan, a new Vegan restaurant on Greenmount Avenue here in Baltimore. So if you are not a turkey eater, we'll be showing you some love a little later. And speaking of My Mama's, we'll also check in with Tom's mama, Rosemary Hall, to find out what she's bringing to Thanksgiving with his brother in Tennessee... Whatever you love about Thanksgiving, we'd love to hear about it. What are your family food traditions? Which of the six million ways to make cranberry sauce will you choose tomorrow? Who's coming to your house, or whose house are you going to, and what COVID precautions will everybody be taking?Let's talk, and let's share with each other the things we love about Thanksgiving, culinary or otherwise. Some community notes: The Y of Central MD's annual Turkey Trot Charity 5k is happening again tomorrow. You can run it. You can walk it.

The John Lamkin Quintet will play a set Friday night; TK Blue and the Mentors Trio will play Saturday night, and on Sunday afternoon and evening, the Eric Byrd Trio will play “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” a great show for families. You need to be vaccinated to attend in person. You can stream all of these shows too. Check it all out at An Die Musik'sWebsite. _____________________________________ Here are three of John Shields' classic Thanksgiving recipes: Thelma's Crab and Artichoke Dip This rich and satisfying dip recipe is from Baltimore's Thelma Tunney. It teams blue crabmeat with tender artichoke hearts in a lightly spiced mayonnaise-based sauce and is actually prepared like a casserole. When guests find out Thelma has been invited to a potluck party they are also attending, their mouths start watering in anticipation of this dip. Thelma often serves this dish as an entree baked in individual ramekins accompanied by a fresh garden salad and a hot crusty baguette. When you serve it as a dip, provide plenty of baguette slices or crackers for dipping. 8 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, shredded 2 cups mayonnaise 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce Juice of 1 lemon 1/8 teaspoon cayenne Freshly ground black pepper 1 jar (16 ounces) artichoke hearts, drained and cut into small pieces 1 pound backfin or special crabmeat, picked over. ½ cup chopped parsley Preheat the oven to 350°F. Butter a 6-cup casserole dish. Combine the cheese, mayonnaise, mustard, Worcestershire, lemon juice, cayenne, and black pepper in a large bowl. Stir until well mixed. Gently fold in the artichoke hearts, crabmeat, and parsley. Pour the mixture into the casserole dish. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Serve at once.  Serves 8 to 10. _______________________________________ Champagne Cabbage and Apples Not that I really understand the concept, but some people just do not like sauerkraut—go figure. But I found a solution--a little devious, but a solution nevertheless. And here it is: a braised champagne “kraut,” with ginger, caraway, and a goodly amount of tart apples. The secret is rinsing the sauerkraut well under cold water, and then the kraut naysayers will enjoy a plateful extolling the virtues of cabbage, and, of course, champagne. Honestly, whether you like kraut or not, this dish really is a crowd pleaser. 6 tablespoons butter or olive oil 2 slices bacon, cut into 1/2-inch pieces (optional) 1 small onion, thinly sliced 2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger 1 teaspoon minced garlic 3 tart apples, peeled, cored, and thinly sliced 2 jars (2 pounds each) sauerkraut, rinsed in cold water several times and drained 2 cups dry champagne 1 teaspoon caraway seed (optional) Salt and black pepper, to taste. Preheat oven to 350°F. In a heavy ovenproof pot, melt the butter, and if using, render the bacon for a few minutes. Add the onion, ginger, and garlic. Sauté for 4 minutes. Add the apples and sauté for 2 minutes longer. Place the rinsed sauerkraut into the pot. Pour in the champagne, caraway seed, salt, and pepper. Toss together and bring to a boil. Cover tightly and bake in the oven for 1 hour.  Serves 8. ____________________________________ Emily's Favorite Black Rock Orchard Apple Pie 2 ¾ cups flour ¾ cup butter 1 large egg ¼ cup milk 10 large tart apples ½ cup sugar 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1 cup cereal flakes (corn, wheat, or a similar type of cereal) Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Place the flour in a mixing bowl and cut butter in with a pastry cutter, or the tips of your fingers, or in a food processor. If using a food processor, use the pulse feature, taking care to only get a coarse mixture. You don't want to over-process. Beat the egg and the milk together and mix with the flour mixture to form a stiff dough. Divide the dough into two pieces and refrigerate. Peel, core, and thinly slice the apples into a bowl. Mix the cinnamon and sugar together and mix with the apple slices. Roll out one ball of dough to fit the bottom and sides of a 12X9-inch Pyrex baking pan. Sprinkle with the cereal flakes, leaving a ½-inch border around the edges of the dough. Spoon the apple mixture over the flakes. Roll out the remaining dough and place over the apples. Seal by pinching the edges together and brush with a little milk to help brown the top of the pie. Place pie in the oven and bake for 1 hour. Remove pan and place on a wire rack to cool. Pie may be served warm or cold. Serves 10 to 12. Adapted from John Shields' Chesapeake Chef column inEdible Chesapeake MagazineFall 2008 Edition. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

This podcast interview focuses on product innovation that has the power to shape the conditions where everyone can come to work in an environment that's right for them. My guest is Nico Blier Silvestri, Co-Founder and CEO of Platypus.Nico has an extremely diverse and robust 15-year career in recruitment, working at industry-leading companies, including Yahoo!, Trust Pilot, and Unity. He's been pioneering his own brand of culture-centric recruitment. Through his time as Chief People Officer, Strategic Business Advisor, and Director of Talent, Nico has now channeled his business and recruitment insights into PlatypusHis experience has taught him that company culture is at the core of every step of an employee journey, from attraction to management, to retention.He believes that culture is democratic. That all employees have an impact on the culture of an organization, bringing their personal values as cultural drivers - and that company culture is not defined by top-down values but by everyday actions.This became the founding principle of Platypus, which Nico leads as their CEO.It's on a mission to help organizations understand their culture better and make sure every employee, whether current or future, has the opportunity to prosper.This inspired me, and hence I invited Nico to my podcast. We explore what's broken in the market where it comes to building thriving cultures. We discuss that's very much a management issue - and what difference can be made if technology and people blend in the right way. Nico shares his stories about the journey he's been through in taking the Platypus from an initial vision to where it is today. He shares the mistakes he made and explains how we overcame some big hurdles to get to Product-Market Fit and create a solution that makes a significant difference in the eyes of his customers.Here are some of his quotes:My big picture genuinely is to kill bullshit branding. I'm exhausted from looking at videos or organizations advertising themselves. It's all the time the same. Put another logo, there's nothing genuine and honest about the reality of this. It's not helping the organization. and it's certainly not helping the candidates or the people outside.Secondly, we really want to achieve is for people to find the right organization for them to work in. That's the whole idea with Platypus. Platypus is this amazing animal that probably shouldn't exist because it's so specific. But in the right environments, in the right setup, it's happy, it's thriving, and it exists and it's evolving. That's why for us we call it Platypus because it's all about finding the right environment for the person.During this interview, you will learn four things:That a critical lever for success is positive conflict. You don't need people that agree with you. You don't need to hear what you've just said in a different voice.Remove the ego from leadership. You're not in a leadership position, because you're right all the time. You're in a leadership position because you're the best at getting the best out of people.That as a CEO you want to go so fast, and you're so self sold into your own idea that it's critical to have people that are not you making decisions on the product.How to go about making the decision to kill your product, and start all over again.For more information about the guest from this week:Nico Blier SilvestriWebsite Platypus See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

UnMind: Zen Moments With Great Cloud

All of the teachingsare met within this zazen:pure meditation!* * *In the last segment we ended with Keizan's discussion of the Precepts, the true ones that go beyond mental characterization. These are the manifest Precepts, that do not depend upon our practice. They are natural, and universal. Such constructions as, “Do not kill,” “Do not steal,” and “Do not lie” become statements of the truth — that actually, the universe that gives us birth is that which actually ends life, and we cannot even own anything, let alone steal it. We cannot actually tell the truth, no matter how erudite, or glib, our speech. These, of course, are absolutist views of the Precepts, which also have relative meaning. In this segment we will continue with what the master says about the remaining two “aspects of spiritual training” he mentions. Beginning with mindfulness:“Mindfulness” is the observing that there is nothing that is in excess. When seated in pure meditation, we let go of “body and mind,” abandon “delusion and enlightenment.” We are unchanging, immovable, unwillful, impervious. We are like a simpleton or a legless man. We are like a mountain or an ocean: no trace of “movement versus stillness” has yet arisen. When mindful, there is no fixed state of things. Short and sweet, but comprehensive. Reminds again of Hsinshinming, “The Way is perfect like vast space — nothing lacking, nothing in excess.” Compare with the modern take on mindfulness, from the pop meditation of the same name, meaning “being in the moment.” In our anxiety- and uncertainty-ridden society, just being able to be in the moment for a moment or two, rather than obsessively ruminating over the past, or planning for the future, is certainly welcome. However, it does not begin to answer the question, Mindful of what? Keizan's abbreviated answer is meant to focus like a laser on one key point, but we would be prone to include mindfulness of the Four Noble truths and other central teachings of Buddha. However, his main point here is that we should also not obsess over these teachings, as such. After all, they are only pointing at the reality in front of our face. Which has nothing extra, nothing truly separate, in mokurai, the complementarity of movement and stillness. He takes a similarly blunt approach to defining wise discernment:“Wise discernment” is being selective within enlightened awareness. When seated in pure meditation, what is intellectually known spontaneously vanishes and self-consciousness is discarded. Your whole being's Eye of Discernment possesses no “specialized insight”: It clearly sees Buddha Nature and is, from the first, not deluded.Keizan uses this kind of expression, “from the first,” repeatedly. We will find Hakuin Zenji starting off his Song of Zazen with “From the beginning…” This captures the meaning of “refuge” in Zen — having the connotation of returning to the safe place from which we originated. It has all been like a bad dream, but we are the authors of that dream, and when we wake up, everything will be okay with us. The rest of the baggage that we carry with us — delusion, and the intellectual ramblings and self-centered striving that result — fall away. The emphasis on spontaneity means that this is not something we can do intentionally, but it can happen. Before launching into another litany of practical things like seeking a “good, quiet place,” a thick cushion, avoiding “mist, smoke, or fog” and “rain and dew,” keeping “your sitting place neat and clean,” et cetera, and repeating some of the prior instructions, he delves again into more specifically mental, or better, counter-mental, techniques:This is the technique for meditating: Let go of, and abandon, awareness of thoughts; put to rest looking at mental fancies and images. Do not devise some notion of what “realizing Buddha-hood” is. Do not let right and wrong control you. Act as if you were saving your head which was ablaze!Here we are hearing echoes of Dogen, for sure. Again, the “hair-on-fire” expression may have been a common trope in this period, much as it is currently. The “…give up even the idea of becoming a Buddha” is, again, pure Dogen. It begins to look like this document may have been a result of someone taking notes, or writing down a spontaneous talk given by Keizan Zenji to an audience. It has that kind of character, of jumping from point to point, and being careful to remember and transmit some of the golden nuggets he had inherited from the newly-developing legacy of Dogen's lineage. Many of the passages sound like direct quotes, perhaps paraphrased, and morphed in translation, from various of Dogen's written teachings, which have a more structured feel. Keizan is either quoting or channeling Dogen's Jijuyu Zammai when he says:Do not get involved with the burning of incense, the making of bows, the reciting of the Buddha's name, the undergoing of some penitential ritual, the reading of Scriptures, the holding on to a daily work schedule: just sitting, without “doing” anything, is what you should aim at above all.This does not strike me as the kind of advice and encouragement to a kind of indolence that the parents of the young monks in Keizan's charge would approve. But with a couple of notable exceptions, it seem lifted verbatim from his predecessor. It is notable that in the first line to Jijuyu Zammai, “practice” is the only thing that Dogen mentions and does not repeat in the following two lines, which seem to refute the first. Don't take my word for it, check it out. Practice transcends the relative, absolute, and even the nondual Buddha Way, whereas “…delusion and realization…birth and death…buddhas and sentient beings,” the other binaries recited as examples, apparently do not. “Practice, practice, practice!” sayeth the Preacher.Next, another whiplash:As a general practice, when doing seated meditation, you should put on your kesa. (Remove it in the dark before dawn and at dusk, as you come out of the meditation state.) Do not omit this.He segues instantly from recommending against following traditional protocols to insisting on wearing the formal robe. The kesa, for the uninitiated, is the quilt-like outer robe, which is typically donned at the beginning of zazen, and removed after. This seeming contradiction may be resolved by a sober analysis of what else the average monk would have available to wear, other than the robe, which can hide a lot of sins. The three undergarments in usage today — the juban, or undershirt, with some sort of boxer shorts; and the kimono and koromo, the Japanese and Chinese under-robes, respectively; may not have been universally in vogue. We do have to keep up appearances, to some degree.There are some deep-dive details noted in the text that may be of importance to scholars and historians, another reason I suspect that this may have been recorded from a live presentation in the zendo, or lecture hall. Before going into boilerplate instructions for the posture, one mention by the master I think is useful to clarify some confusion that arises yet today:Whilst on your mat… do not always sustain the cross-legged, “lotus” sitting position; range from a half-lotus position to, later, sitting with your feet under your spine. This is the method of sitting of the Buddhas and Ancestors: sometimes to do full lotus, sometimes half-lotus.This is different from Dogen's written record, but may have been characteristic of his live instructions. Remember that Keizan was born only 15 years after Dogen's demise, so his teachers had lived with and learned from the great founder in person. Note the admonition, more than a mere suggestion, to “not always sustain the cross-legged” position. This will come as a relief to many contemporary practitioners, who have been told that they must assume the “correct” posture, and heaven forfend if you should move. Buddha moved. I guaran-damn-tee you, Buddha moved.We recommend rotating through the various postures — over time, not continuously — to develop the requisite flexibility in the lower body, hips, knees, legs and ankles. Also sitting on a chair, including the ergonomic kind. Zen is always contemporary, as Matsuoka Roshi insisted. There is nothing magical in the lotus posture. It is, simply, more stable than the others, like the proverbial three-legged stool. What follows is familiar enough to those who follow Soto Zen praxis that we can skip it here. However, there are a couple of details that I think worth retelling, separated by more details in the text (italics mine):Next, your should settle down in your sitting placed by swaying your body seven or eight times in ever smaller movements, then steadily sitting erect.When you wish to arise from meditation, first, place your hands respectfully on your knees and sway your body seven or eight times in ever larger movements.This is a small, but not insignificant, improvement over the written instructions in Fukanzazengi, as the “ever smaller” movements in the beginning help us to find the central “sweet spot” in the posture, where we come into equilibrium, or equipoise, with gravity, the most efficient and effortless proprioception. The “ever larger” pendulum moves at the end of the session likewise loosen the musculature, especially the lotus-position base, allowing us to rise without strain. This set of moves is most often forgotten by many contemporaries, but makes the approach to zazen more like any other physical exercise.Keizan goes on to give similar instructions when rising and beginning walking meditation, when sleepy, and for breathing while walking, which he treats as an antidote to sleepiness, none of which I recall from Dogen's documentation. Doesn't mean they weren't there, but Keizan's emphasis does seem to be on some other syllables. Included in the advice for kinhin is the nugget:Although you are walking, do it as though you are not walking: be calm and tranquil, and do not thrash your body about.The last thing anyone who has done kinhin would associate with it, I think, is thrashing your body about. This rather comic image may reflect the young age at which some of the young monks, or unsui, would be sent to the monastery. Walking as if you are not walking is a wonderful idea. Matsuoka Roshi would often say, “Put your whole self into the walking” or “into the sitting. If you can put your whole self into this, you will gain the power to put your whole self into everything you do, and will become the strongest person in the world.” Today we might say that you will become the best version of yourself.I often say that zazen is like “falling asleep staying awake.” In other words, like drifting off to sleep, our natural, busy monkey mind preoccupations tamp down to a dull roar, we begin to lose sensory awareness, maybe even experience sudden vertigo, and in general, lose the turgor associated with normal awakeness and anxiety. But while this process sets in, we stay awake and observe it rather scientifically. Keizan seems to concur, offering some evasive maneuvers to fight off sleep:If drowsiness persists, you should make a vow, saying, “Because my karmic habits are already heavy, I am now shrouded in sleep. When will I awaken from my dark and confused wandering in the mind? I pray that the Buddhas and Ancestors will confer their great compassion on me and remove my dark and heavy suffering.”I suspect that these techniques address what we might recognize as symptoms of sleep deprivation. The dawn-to-dusk design of retreats, and especially the time-honored tradition of sitting up all night on occasion, surely are meant to challenge the circadian rhythm, with notably direct effects on perception. The entreaties to Buddhas and Ancestors we might consider extraneous to this problem, but they tend to remind us that all of our lineage went through privations and self-discipline at least as trying as those we face, in the relative comfort of an environment fueled by electricity and fossil fuels, as well as indoor plumbing. We got no room to complain about our “dark and heavy suffering.”Interestingly for a Soto Zen priest, Keizan also recommends that “If your thoughts are still not at rest, you should call to mind some short koan which your Master has given you to guide you, such as ‘What is It that comes like this?,' ‘A dog's not having Buddha Nature,' ‘Ummon's Mount Sumeru,' Joshu's oak tree,' for instance: ‘bland talk is what meets the need.” So koans were not eschewed entirely in early Soto Zen, even when doing zazen, but were considered relatively bland, not disturbing to equanimity. He also recommends focusing on death to calm the mind, “the great matter where your breathing comes to an end and your eyes close forever.” Or, “focus on the ‘not-yet-born state' before a single thought has arisen. In modern parlance, neither of these images would be considered especially calming. But then he predicts that even “when you are doing your daily activities, you will suddenly give rise to the two types of ‘emptiness' — that of there being no personal self and of there being no permanent self in phenomena — and your scattered thoughts will, without fail, lose their force. Again, seemingly not very soothing.In closing, he brings it home: “Then, what is right before your eyes will be your koan.” Which he rephrases, “At that moment, what the koan is is ‘right before your eyes.'” In between he notes, “You and it will not be ‘two things going around each other.'” Again, the great master seems to be throwing out, at random, all the fingers pointing at the moon that he can muster, in the hopes that one will stick. He ends with “Wholeheartedly do I pray for this; with all my heart do I so pray.” Can I get an amen?* * *Elliston Roshi is guiding teacher of the Atlanta Soto Zen Center and abbot of the Silent Thunder Order.

On Tuesday's Mark Levin Show, no news is good news when it comes to the elite American media machine, which is similar to state-run media pushing the propaganda of the communist Chinese government on CCTV says Habi Zhang. Then, according to the Tennessee Star, Delaware County, Pennsylvania, election records were destroyed faster than the state law requires. Multiple videos show officials flippantly getting rid of election information. This reinforces an email from Christina Iacono read by this program in November of 2020 highlighting votes that could not be counted and ballots that had chain of custody issues. These issues were ignored by the U.S Attorney of Pennsylvania and the Attorney General's Office, yet Bill Barr claimed that no such issues were raised or brought to the Department of Justice. So why didn't the DOJ conduct an investigation? Later, in a massive ruse, NYC moves allow non-citizens to vote. This will eventually open the door for non-citizens to vote in state and federal elections as well. With the democrats pushing for same-day registration and lowering the voting age to 16, Democrats will be unstoppable. Afterward, President Biden has taken 50M barrels of oil from the country's strategic petroleum reserve. The rising cost of gas is because Biden stopped drilling on federal land, stopped fracking, and closed pipelines, a problem he says is a myth. Fossil fuel is necessary to produce almost everything. Finally, former Watergate Counsel and White House fellow Geoff Shepard joins the show to discuss his new book "The Nixon Conspiracy: Watergate and the Plot to Remove the President." He reveals that a cabal of anti-Nixon prosecutors and judges created the falsehood that Nixon was part of a Watergate cover-up, however, this wasn't known for 45 years. Shepard has filed charges against the attorney for their misconduct. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Acclaimed chef Freddie Bitsoie, and James-Beard award-winning writer James O. Fraioli, join us to talk their new cookbook, New Native Kitchen: Celebrating Modern Recipes of the American Indian. The cookbook explores and celebrates Indigenous cuisine from across the country, providing modern interpretations of one hundred recipes that have been the basis of American cuisine for centuries.   BISON BURGERS WITH CARAMELIZED SWEET ONIONS This recipe works the opposite of many in this book—instead of modernizing a traditional recipe, I'm traditionalizing a modern recipe. Imagine your favorite burger, then swap out the beef patty for ground bison. Ground bison is one of the least expensive ways to try this Indigenous staple, and I give my preparation additional Native American ingredients, topping the burger with caramelized onions seasoned with fresh herbs and juniper berries. Serve bison burgers over wilted greens, alongside any of my salads, or on a fresh-baked brioche bun for a Native American-meets-modern-American classic. Serves 4 1 pound (455 g) ground bison2 teaspoons salt2 teaspoons freshly cracked black pepper 1⁄2 cup (25 g) chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley1⁄4 cup (25 g) grated queso fresco Caramelized Sweet Onions, recipe follows4 hamburger buns Condiments of choice Prepare and preheat an outdoor grill to high heat. In a large bowl, add the bison, 2 teaspoons salt, 2 teaspoons pepper, parsley, and queso fresco. Mix well by hand, but do not overmix. Divide evenly and shape into quarter-pound burgers, about 1⁄4 inch (6 mm) thick. Arrange the burgers on the grill and cook 3 to 4 minutes per side for medium-rare (cook longer if you prefer medium-well). Do not touch or press the burgers during the grilling process. The key is to keep the juices inside. Otherwise, the burgers will be dry. Remove the burgers and let rest for a couple minutes. Top with the caramelized sweet onions and serve on buns with any condiments you like. CARAMELIZED SWEET ONIONS Makes approximately 1⁄2 cup (115 g) 2 teaspoons canola oil1 large sweet onion, peeled and diced1 sprig fresh thyme1 bay leaf2 teaspoons salt2 teaspoons freshly cracked black pepper 1⁄2 teaspoon ground juniper berries2 tablespoons agave nectar In a medium sauté pan over low heat, add the oil. When the oil is hot, add the onion, thyme, bay leaf, 2 teaspoons salt, and 2 teaspoons pepper. Allow the onion to sweat for about 10 minutes, at which time it will begin to caramelize. Deglaze the pan with 1⁄4 cup (60 ml) water and keep sautéing for 15 minutes. If the onions caramelize too quickly, deglaze with another 1⁄4 cup (60 ml) water to slow the cooking process. You want the onions soft and caramelized, not burnt. Add the juniper berries and agave nectar. Stir well to combine, remove from the heat, discard the thyme sprig and bay leaf, and set aside and keep warm.   Reprinted from 'New Native Kitchen: Celebrating Modern Recipes of the American Indian' by Freddie Bitsoie and James O.

Go ahead and grab the ingredients below (Erin starts listing them at 1:58) before starting the episode.Apple Pecan PieMakes one 9-inch pie1 recipe All Buttah Pie Dough, prepared and chilled4 tablespoons (56 grams) unsalted butter1 cup (212 grams) dark brown sugar, divided2 tablespoons (15 grams) all-purpose flour2 cups (240 grams) peeled and diced apples, such as Cosmic Crisp, Honeycrisp, or Fuji (about 2 large apples)3 (170 grams) large eggs, at room temperature1/4 cup (78 grams) maple syrup1 1/2 teaspoons (7 grams) vanilla extract3/4 teaspoon (3 grams) fine sea salt1/2 teaspoon (2 grams) ground cinnamon1 1/2 cups (200 grams) pecan halves, roughly choppedOn a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to ¼-in/6 mm thick, rotating it as you work to prevent it from sticking to the work surface. Use the rolling pin to transfer the dough to the pan, gently rolling it up, wrapping it around the pin, then unfurling it into a 9-in/23 cm pie plate.Use scissors to trim away the excess pie dough, leaving about ½ in/1 cm of excess all the way around the outside edge of the pie plate. Tuck this excess dough under itself, pressing gently to make it flush with the outside edge of the pie plate. Crimp the edge as desired.Dock the base and sides of the dough with the tines of a fork, then refrigerate for 30 minutes to 1 hour. Towards the end of chill time, preheat the oven to 425°F/220°C.Cut a square of parchment paper slightly larger than the diameter of a pie plate, and press it into the base of the pie plate. Fill with pie weights to the top inner rim of the pan. Bake until the edges begin to lightly brown, 15 to 17 minutes.Remove the parchment paper and pie weights, and return to the oven until the lower portion of crust appears dry and set (it shouldn't brown), 2 to 3 minutes more. Cool completely before filling. Reduce the oven temperature to 375°F/190°C.In a medium pot, melt the butter over medium heat. Place ½ cup (106 g) brown sugar in a small bowl, and use your fingers to rub the flour into it until well combined. Add the apples to the pot, and sprinkle the sugar mixture over it and stir well to combine.Cook, stirring constantly, until the sugar dissolves and the apples start to become tender; continue to cook until the “sauce” that forms from the sugar and apple's juices thickens slightly, fully coating the apples, 4 to 5 minutes.Pour this mixture onto a baking sheet or shallow casserole dish and spread into an even layer. Cool for 10 to 15 minutes.In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs well. Add the remaining ½ cup (106 g) brown sugar, maple syrup, vanilla, salt, and cinnamon and whisk well to combine.Add the apple mixture and pecans to the bowl and stir well to combine. Gently pour the mixture into the cooled pie crust.Transfer the pie to the oven and bake until the custard appears just set in the center when the pan is slightly moved back and forth, 35 to 40 minutes. Cool completely before slicing and serving.Is there a recipe you'd like to hear us make?

Hello everyone and welcome to this special pre-season kick-off event! Season 3 "officially" begins next week when Em from Verbal Diorama joins me, but with Thanksgiving coming this Thursday I wanted to share something special with everyone. This week, I talk about negating negative thoughts and how we need to re-shape our language when talking about one another- and ourselves. I also break down my full pumpkin pie recipe, from pumpkin to puree to crust to delicious, creamy pie!  Season three is going to mark an evolution in the show in a lot of ways. Some things are changing, but others will remain the same. So much is going to develop over the next few weeks and I'm so excited to share it all with you. Please make sure you head to my YouTube Channel for the video version of this week's positivity segment, and lots of other great video content coming in the future. Thank you all so much for listening, and thank you so much for coming on this journey with me.    Featured Recipes for this Episode Pumpkin Pie Filling 3 c roasted pumpkin puree 1 c evaporated milk  1/4 c sweetened condensed milk 1/4 c heavy cream 2 eggs 1/2 c packed brown sugar  1 T ground cinnamon  1/2 t ground nutmeg  1/4 t ground cloves 1/4 t Allspice 1/2 t salt  To prepare your filling-  Preheat your oven to 400°. Using whole pie pumpkins (as many as needed), cut in half and scoop out the seeds and stringy bits. Remove the stem. Sprinkle with cinnamon and nutmeg (if desired). Roast the pumpkin halves skin-side up for 40-45 minutes, or until the pumpkin rind is partly collapsed and peeled away from the flesh. Remove and discard all of the skin. Transfer the pumpkin flesh to a food processor and pulse it until it is smooth. Store the pumpkin puree in the fridge until ready to use or the freezer for later use (your puree should be cold when preparing the pie filling). Combine all of the ingredients together in a large bowl and mix together with an electric mixer. Pie Crust (Makes 2) 3 cups all-purpose flour  1-1/2 t salt  1/2 cup shortening, cubed and chilled/frozen 1/2 cup butter, cubed and chilled/frozen 1/2 cup ice cold water  1 t cinnamon 1 t nutmeg Combine the flour, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a bowl and whisk together. Add butter and shortening to the dry ingredient mixture. Stir this only with a wooden or silicone spoon and try not to touch it with your hands, as it'll make the butter and shortening melty and the dough won't come together as easily.  Add 1/4 cup of water and continue mixing until combined. Add the remainder of the water as needed until the pie dough comes together in a nice ball that is not sticky (you may need more water, just chuck some ice cubes into cold water to get it to temperature). Separate the dough into two balls and wrap them tightly in shrink wrap. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or until you are ready to use. Baking your Pie- Preheat your oven to 400°. Lightly flour your counter or work surface- you can use wax paper here to help transfer it to the pie pan easier. Roll the dough to 1/8" thickness. With a sharp knife, cut the dough about 1-1/2" larger in diameter than your upside-down pie pan (you can just flip it over and put it in the center of the dough for easy reference).  Gently roll your dough around your rolling pin or use your wax paper to transfer it into the pie pan.  Unroll or place it into the pan and work it into place. Place the pie shell into the freezer to chill for 30 minutes. Remove the pie shell from the freezer and brush the edges of the crust with egg wash (if desired). Line the inside of the pie crust with parchment paper. Use pie weights to weigh down your shell to avoid it puffing up or prick holes into the bottom with a fork. Bake the shell for 10-12 minutes or until the edges of the crust are starting to brown. Remove the pie crust from the oven and remove your weights (if used).  Pour in your pie filling immediately- don't over-fill! Bake for 40-50 minutes or until a fork inserted into the center of the pie comes out clean (check it every few minutes once you hit 40 minutes). Halfway through the bake cycle you'll want to cover the rim of the pie shell with foil or a cover so your crust doesn't burn. Remove from the oven and allow the pie to cool completely before serving.   Important Links (All links open in a new window) Main Website Subscribe on Patreon!

Hear the Word of the Lord from Ecclesiastes chapter 11, starting in verse seven through the end of the book. 7 Light is sweet, and it is pleasant for the eyes to see the sun. 8 So if a person lives many years, let him rejoice in them all; but let him remember that the days of darkness will be many. All that comes is vanity. 9 Rejoice, O young man, in your youth, and let your heart cheer you in the days of your youth. Walk in the ways of your heart and the sight of your eyes. But know that for all these things God will bring you into judgment. 10 Remove vexation from your heart, and put away pain from your body, for youth and the dawn of life are vanity. 1 Remember also your Creator in the days of your youth, before the evil days come and the years draw near of which you will say, “I have no pleasure in them”; 2 before the sun and the light and the moon and the stars are darkened and the clouds return after the rain, 3 in the day when the keepers of the house tremble, and the strong men are bent, and the grinders cease because they are few, and those who look through the windows are dimmed, 4 and the doors on the street are shut—when the sound of the grinding is low, and one rises up at the sound of a bird, and all the daughters of song are brought low— 5 they are afraid also of what is high, and terrors are in the way; the almond tree blossoms, the grasshopper drags itself along, and desire fails, because man is going to his eternal home, and the mourners go about the streets— 6 before the silver cord is snapped, or the golden bowl is broken, or the pitcher is shattered at the fountain, or the wheel broken at the cistern, 7 and the dust returns to the earth as it was, and the spirit returns to God who gave it. 8 Vanity of vanities, says the Preacher; all is vanity. 9 Besides being wise, the Preacher also taught the people knowledge, weighing and studying and arranging many proverbs with great care. 10 The Preacher sought to find words of delight, and uprightly he wrote words of truth. 11 The words of the wise are like goads, and like nails firmly fixed are the collected sayings; they are given by one Shepherd. 12 My son, beware of anything beyond these. Of making many books there is no end, and much study is a weariness of the flesh. 13 The end of the matter; all has been heard. Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole duty of man. 14 For God will bring every deed into judgment, with every secret thing, whether good or evil. Ecclesiastes 11:7-12:14, ESV The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God endures forever. My junior year in high school, I was required to take a physics course. Now, physics would not have been my choice, numbers and science, and all of that is not really my favorite thing to do, but it was a requirement and I took it. There were actually some interesting things in the class, one of which was an assignment. I was calculating, this would be 20 years ago right now I was gearing up to do. We had to do it over Christmas break my junior year there and we had to build a balsa wood bridge. So they gave us balsa wood sticks and some wood glue, and we had to take it home and to form a bridge that would hopefully be as strong and sturdy to bear up under as much weight as possible. So I worked on this project with a friend. We went home and hung out, and kind of messed around if I'm really being honest, and put together a very basic bridge. We got a little concerned when we got there and we saw all the elaborate bridges that some of my other friends had put together and we were thinking, oh my goodness, ours looks so flimsy. What's going to happen here? Actually, we ended up okay because it wasn't just how much weight can your bridge bear up under, but it was a ratio thing. So the lighter the bridge, the sort of the less weight you had to bear under if two bridges held the less or the same amount of weight, the lighter bridge because it held up weight under less material, would be deemed the winner. So because ours was so flimsy and very little went into it, our ratio was actually quite high. What was interesting in that project was the way that they worked through bridge after bridge after bridge. They put it on this machine that my physics teacher had hooked up, that we he slowly poured water into the bucket so that he could know exactly how much weight this could bear up under. We watched bridge after bridge after bridge crack and collapse. There wasn't any bridge that stood the test of all the weight that was put on it. There was no bridge that got to the end and said, well, I guess that can withstand under any pressure. Eventually, every bridge broke. Indeed, in life, ultimately, everything breaks. So what this means and what the preacher is trying to tell us in this passage is that if our identity, if our hope, if our confidence is in how we compare against others at some point in our lives, well, then we're ultimately building our foundation on a sinking sand. Even though you might be a little bit behind someone here or you might be a little ahead of someone tomorrow, the point is that ultimately even your bridge won't stand up. Eventually, everything is going to break. You need a firmer foundation, one that's not built on shifting sinking sand. What the preacher says as he closes this book of wisdom is that you need to build your life on the rock solid foundation of God himself. In Jesus Christ and him crucified. You need to do this through all the days of your life, from when you were young to when you were old, for as many years as the Lord trusts you and trust to you until he calls you home. Afterwards, as the preacher reminds us, comes the judgment. Our big idea then today is this Fear God and keep his commandments. This comes directly from Ecclesiastes 12 verse 13. So this morning, three parts to the sermon as we look at it. First, fear God in youth, some of you young people today, this is a sermon for you. Second, fear God in old age. Those of you who are not young anymore, this is a sermon for you and for everyone in between. Then third, fear God in view of eternity. 1. Fear God in Youth 2. Fear God in Old Age 3. Fear God in View of Eternity Fear God in Youth So number one fear God in youth. Look again at 11:7, "Light is sweet, and it is pleasant for the eyes to see the sun." Now the preacher's starting a comparison here, but it's not clear yet where he's going with this. So we have to peek ahead a little bit in the passage to see where he's going. He's talking about light and light is sweet, and he's talking about eyes that see, especially see the light of the sun. This is an image for youth, for the earlier years of our lives. We're going to see this as the preacher later talks about the dimmed eyes and the darkness of old age. In fact, one of the main ways that the Bible talks about old age is as dimmed eyes. For example, Isaac in Genesis 27:1 is old and his eyes were dim so that he could not see. Jacob, in Genesis 48:1, again is old and his eyes were dim so that he could not see. Eli, the priest under whom the Prophet Samuel served, again when he was only reading in ` Samuel 3:2 was old and his eyes were dim so that he could not see. Dimmed eyes are a product of old age. So the preacher is saying, enjoy light while you can see it. It's sweet, it's pleasant for the eyes to see the sun. So verse eight, "So if a person lives many years, let him rejoice in them all; but let him remember that the days of darkness will be many. All that comes is vanity." What he's saying here is that life is precious, life is sacred, every moment of your life from the beginning to the end is something that you should enjoy and savor because he says the days of darkness will be many. Now, what are these days of darkness? Well, this could refer to old age. Again, if old age is characterized by dimness of sight, then old age could be the darkness that it's referring to here. Or this dimness, this darkness could refer to death. Death is the final enveloping of darkness around us, as it's often talked about in the Bible. Or it may not refer to the lifespan of an individual human being, but it may be talking about the lifespan of the world itself. The end of the world, the day of the Lord, the final day of God, when God brings all of history to an end and brings everyone in judgment is described by the Prophet Amos in Amos 5:20 as a day of darkness, "is not the day of the Lord darkness and not light and gloom with no brightness in it." So enjoy these years when there is light and enjoy all the years of your life, but remember the days of darkness will be many. There's a warning here, not to give too much attention to youthfulness. Verse nine, once again, encouragement to enjoy youth. "Rejoice, O young man, in your youth, and let your heart cheer you in the days of your youth." Enjoy this youth! But he says, be mindful of the coming judgment. He says walk in the ways of your heart and the sight of your eyes, but know that for all these things, God will bring you into judgment. Now what's interesting about this walk in the ways of your heart and the side of your eyes is how often we are told elsewhere in the Bible not to walk after the ways of our heart and not to walk after our sight. For example, a verse I quote often is 2 Corinthians 5:7,"We walk by faith and not by sight." The preacher isn't contradicting those verses. The preacher isn't contradicting the many places where we are told not to follow after the ways of our hearts. What he's saying here is not a contradiction because those passages talk about morality. Will you trust in your own wisdom or will you trust in your own insight? Will you trust in what you can see or will you trust in the Lord? Here the preacher is simply saying, enjoy this, enjoy life while you can see it and savor it. The warning says don't get too far afield is to know that for everything you do, God will eventually bring into judgment. So in verse 10, the preacher really encourages us to enjoy youth, "Remove vexation from your heart, and put away pain from your body, for youth and the dawn of life are vanity." They are a mist. They are here and then they are gone. Enjoy this while it is here. Youth ends far too soon. Now I am not yet what I would consider to be old, my children might disagree, but I'm also probably not quite in the young category anymore. I'm at 37 years old, which means that I'm just a year or so shy of half the average age of life expectancy for a male living in the United States. I haven't had that many years on this Earth, but it's astonishing how much has changed, even in my short lifetime. I want to give you a vivid example, some of you who are older will maybe remember some of this. My wife and I were this week at a shopping mall. Shopping malls are tremendously depressing places to go today. It's hard to explain to younger people how much fun and how much life and how much bustling there used to be at shopping malls. I have the most vivid memory as a child of being at a shopping mall and being in the food court, which was the best place to eat in town, and there were so many people they were just on top of each other. Then when you left the food court, people were just going in all kinds of different ways. There was life and energy and vitality there. I associated a lot with my childhood. But as I think about the childhood, my youth, I also know that that child or that mall in Hastings, Nebraska, has now been bulldozed to the ground because it couldn't sustain itself anymore. As I went in a shopping mall that's sort of limping along, I won't name it. I don't want to offend anyone, but you can probably guess there aren't that many in Omaha. As I went to a shopping mall this week, it was amazing. The growth of that is how skillful they are in putting up walls where they used to be businesses. So I was looking at a wall that was tiled and there was sort of a makeshift library, a take a book, leave a book. I realized, wait a minute, this is where the pretzel vendor used to be. As these businesses are going away as life and the world changes, I think about these vivid childhood memories of things that were a big deal then and how quickly things change and move away. That's a picture of a little bit of what happens in our youth. We have these vivid memories of when life is sweet and it's pleasant for the eyes to see the sun and the preacher says, enjoy this while you can. Children enjoy your childhood; you never get it back again. Young people enjoy the stage at which you are because you will never get it back again. Those of you with new babies enjoy that stage, they grow up so quickly. But everything eventually breaks. Nothing can withstand the test of time. It all eventually breaks down. Youth is but one season under heaven, there's a time to be born, but as the preacher is about to remind us, there is also a time to die. The preacher exhorts us to take seriously old age and death. Fear God in Old Age So what we're seeing in the next section in verses one through eight of chapter 12 is really the final word of the main part of this book. There's a main section. I'm going to show you how we find the end of that and a little bit, but this is the last main thing that the preacher says before the conclusion or the epilogue to this book. His main point is fear God in old age. The second section is fear God in old age, and it starts in verse one. This is sort of the transition from the previous section to this one. "Remember also your creator in the days of your youth before the evil days come in the years draw, near of which you will say, I have no pleasure in them." Now we read in verse nine of the previous chapter that we should remember our creator because judgment is coming, but here the preacher is reminding us that we should remember our creator in the days of our youth because of joy. Charles Bridge is one of the commentators on this passage. He writes this this line that really stood out to me, "Many have remembered their creator too late in life, but none too soon." As I look back on my life, I do not regret a single thing I gave up following Jesus. I don't regret any of the parties I missed. I don't regret any of the lifestyles that people around me were living. I don't regret missing out on any of that. My only regrets are when I did not follow Jesus as closely as I should have. My only regrets. Many people find their creator too late, but none find their creator too soon. You see, when you're young, you tend to think that you are invincible. The preacher reminds us here that the young invincibility very quickly fades away, far more quickly than we realize. The days are coming when you will say, I have no pleasure in them. Then versus two through seven, the preacher turns to this extended metaphor or this sort of stream of images that sort of roll by us now. Sometimes he's building an extended metaphor where the details are very clear, you know, pretty much exactly what he's talking about. Other times, some people have tried to sort of press the details too far to say, well, this refers to that, and it's a little too hard to make some of those connections. Where the details are not always clear the general meaning is. He's giving us a tremendous range of imagery to remind us about what old age does to all of us. So look at what he says in verse two. Here is where he brings back that comparison that he started in verse seven at the beginning of our passage of the last chapter, that youth is characterized by seeing the sweet light, whereas old age is characterized by darkness. So 12:2, "before the sun and the light and the moon and the stars are darkened and the clouds return after the rain." Not just clouds that come to bring the healthy life giving rains, but now these are clouds that come after the rain is over and they just hang and darken the sky. Then there's verse three, "in the day when the keepers of the house tremble, and the strong men are bent, and the grinders cease because they are few, and those who look through the windows are dimmed," We have here at the beginning of a description of a house that's falling apart with age, and it begins with the keepers of the house probably talking about limbs, arms and legs that tremble. The keepers of the house tremble and the strong men are bent, what used to be as strong back is now bent over with age. The grinders ceased because they are few, probably referring to your teeth. The old age makes it difficult to chew. Those who look through the windows are dimmed again, we're having a sight imagery, someone's looking out of this house and you can't quite see through the windows anymore. Verse four begins the discussion of hearing and the doors of the street are shut, "and the doors on the street are shut—when the sound of the grinding is low, and one rises up at the sound of a bird, and all the daughters of song are brought low—" When we shut the doors, we can't hear what's going on outside, and that's what happens to this house. Again, where the youth think that they are invincible, those who are old know fears. "They are afraid also of what is high, and terrors are in the way; the almond tree blossoms, the grasshopper drags itself along, and desire fails, because man is going to his eternal home, and the mourners go about the streets— " in verse five. The almond tree blossoms, well, this sounds promising new life blossoms, but it's giving an image of if you think of an almond tree when it blossoms, it's whitened like hair. The grasshopper drags itself along, think of how spry and nimble a grasshopper is, but as the days creep on year after year in fall toward the colder seasons, you ever seen those grasshoppers that can barely move anymore? Grasshopper drags itself along and desire fails, because man is going to his eternal home and all of a sudden, the house is no longer decaying. We find ourselves in the middle of a funeral. The end has come, the mourners go about the streets. Then verse six, "before the silver cord is snapped, or the golden bowl is broken, or the pitcher is shattered at the fountain, or the wheel broken at the cistern." Again, don't try to press the details of what the cord is and the bowl is and the pitcher is or the wheel is. This is an image of the fragility of life. In just a moment, it's gone. Until verse seven, "and the dust returns to the earth as it was, and the spirit returns to God who gave it." When God first created Adam, he gathered together dust and mold it and shape that dust into Adam's body, and then God himself stooped down to breathe the breath of life into this man. When sin into the world when that same man rebelled against God, God told him that you are dust and to dust, you shall return. Our bodies returned to the dust, and the life breath that's been on loan to us has to be returned to God. In verse eight, the preacher ends this main section of Ecclesiastes with, "Vanity of vanities, says the preacher. All is vanity." We know this is the end of the main section, because there's a this is the tail where there's a corresponding top at the very beginning of Ecclesiastes in 1:2. It says the exact same thing, "vanity of vanity, says the preacher, all is vanity." He began on that word, and now he ends on that word. Everything is a mist. It's a breath. It's a vapor. It's here, and then it's gone. Everything, even you young children one day are going to grow old and you are going to break down and die. Everything breaks down and dies. All is vanity. One of the most stunning object lessons of the relentless, vicious work of time, I think, is to see whenever they have a big reunion for something, a big reunion of people who are famous. So this year was the 50th anniversary of a really famous football game, the game of the century, between Nebraska and Oklahoma in 1971. Children, 50 years ago, Nebraska won games. In that in that game, it was a really big game against, against a really big team, and it was an epic battle. You can pull this up on YouTube. The fittest, the fastest, the strongest men who are youthful in their vigor and their vitality fighting it out like gladiators on the field. It was an epic game. That's why it's called the game of the century. When this reunion has happened, those same young, vibrant men are now bent with age and their limbs tremble. Age has taken a significant toil on the best and the fittest and the strongest of their generation. Even more cruel, perhaps, or when you see reunion episodes of sitcoms, especially the sitcoms that that glamorize and idealize and idolize youth. Where you see these people who are living it up for their youth and their beauty, and that's everything to them. You see them 20 years later and age has not been kind. You say if they were living for their youth, if that was everything to them, if that's what that show was about, their lives have already peaked. How tragic to live that way. How tragic to live clinging to what cannot be retained. If youth is everything, what do you do when it's gone? Youth is a time of light, and it is and it is a time of joy, but it is so fleeting. Old age is a time of darkness and fragility. No one likes it better. The preacher acknowledges that these are years you are going to say, I have no pleasure in them. You will have pleasure in them, but not of the kind that you had, which is everywhere, all around you in your youth. As I remember my grandmother so vividly saying at the death of my grandfather, death comes to us all. Death comes to us all. The preacher wants us to know life under the sun is so fragile, it is so fickle, it is so fleeting to cling to, it is futile and foolish. Wisdom insists, then, that we must remember our creator because he is the eternal one who stands outside time. Time does not age God because he is the ageless one. He is neither older nor younger. He has never been before. He is always before. He is, and he always will be. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. He does not change. There is no before and after with God. He simply is. Fear God in View of Eternity So the preacher concludes all of this book in verses nine through fourteen. With an exhortation to remember this creator. So now we come to section three, fear God in view of eternity. Again, some commentators call this the epilogue or conclusion, but the point is this stands outside of the main body of the work. The preachers surveyed everything, and now he comes to his final conclusions. What should we take from this? This is the application section of his sermon. So in verses nine through ten, part of this is tracing the preacher's work in life and ministry. Besides being wise, the preacher also taught the people knowledge, weighing and studying and arranging many proverbs with great care. The preacher sought to find words of delight and uprightly he wrote words of truth. We're told in 1 Kings 4:32 that Solomon spoke 3000 proverbs and his songs were one thousand and five. You see we value in our day access to information. We want to be able to Google something at the drop of a hat and figure out an answer to anything or look it up on Wikipedia. Figure that kind of thing out. The ancients had a very different perspective. They valued not mere access just to know that I can look it up, and they didn't value mere information. They wanted mastery of wisdom. For someone to memorize 3000 proverbs and one thousand five songs is an extraordinary feat of wisdom. He mastered this great wisdom over the course of his life and he tried to pass it on. He was a teacher. He tried to find words of delight and uprightly he wrote words of truth. Then verses eleven and twelve, he talks about what these words did. He says, "The words of the wise are like goads, and like nails firmly fixed are the collected sayings; they are given by one Shepherd. My son, beware of anything beyond these. Of making many books there is no end, and much study is a weariness of the flesh." Goads prod livestock. If you're trying to get a cow or a sheep to go in a certain direction, a goad was a big stick that you would poke him to get him to go in the direction that you wanted to go. We need these in our own lives to be goaded by these words of wisdom. But he says words of wisdom are also like nails. You think of what nails do? They fix something down, particularly for a shepherd, that's what's in view here. The shepherd who's goading, the shepherd who has nails firmly fixed down, the one shepherd from whom on wisdom comes. This is shepherding imagery. The shepherd would have used these nails to fix down his tent from site to site. Wisdom teaches us to know when we need to move and when we need to remain steadfast and fixed and steady. What the preacher warns us is that too much information, too many books, can obscure the clarity of God's wisdom, the wisdom that comes from one shepherd. Of course, this one shepherd is God. As Psalm 23:1 says, "The Lord is my shepherd". Particularly when Jesus Christ came into the world de declared, "I am the Good Shepherd" in John 10:11. That's where wisdom comes from. It comes from the timeless one, the eternal one, the one who is not affected by time because he created it and encompasses it all before him in his eternal wisdom and power. Well, in verse 13, this is the conclusion. He says, "The end of the matter; all has been heard. Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole duty of man." He has surveyed everything under the sun and what does he say? Fear God and keep his commandments. After considering everything under the sun, everything in this world, the preacher says there's nothing in here that's going to satisfy you like you're looking for. Instead of looking under the sun, look above the sun, look to the creator of the sun. Fear God and keep his commandments. Now we've talked about what the fear of God is. It means, on the one hand, acknowledging your vulnerability and your helplessness and your hopelessness and your guilt because of sin. To be truthful about that. Not to try to hide it, not to try to make justifications or excuses. It's to acknowledge them before the judge of all the Earth you stand guilty. It's to go to that same judge and recognize that he is your only hope, because he has loved you so much that he has sent his son, Jesus Christ, into this world to die for you in your place so that you may be reconciled to him by grace through faith. It's to trust in this same Lord because of his promises, anyway, even though you are guilty. The fear of God, the fear of the Lord is another word, then for faith. As the Bible everywhere declares, we are justified, we are made righteous before God by faith. We are counted as righteous before him by faith. So the preacher says fear God, but he adds this line, he says, keep the commandments. Now this isn't to atone for your guilt. This isn't to earn something before God. We are saved by grace alone through faith alone and not by works. Ephesians 2:8-9 is very clear about this. "For by grace, you have been saved through faith and this is not your own doing. It is the gift of God, not by work so that no one may boast." We are not saved by keeping the commandments, rather, when the Bible talks about keeping the commandments, it's always as a loving response of gratitude. Knowing that even as we seek to keep his commandments, we're still dependent upon him upon his grace, upon his power to obey. To keep the commandments as another word for what the Bible calls sanctification, to grow in the holiness without which no one would see the Lord. We are justified by faith, by the fear of God, and we are sanctified as by God's power. It's by God's grace through faith, we seek to keep his commandments. So, in verse 14, the preacher closes with this word. He says, "For God will bring every deed into judgment, with every secret thing, whether good or evil." A life lived for the fleeting pleasures of this world is its own reward in full and those pleasures are so quickly fading away. Nothing lasts, everything ultimately breaks down. A life lived for the glory of God, who is not under the sun, he is above the sun, he is the one who created this, and the life lived for his glory will not be in vain. Application How do we apply then? Well our application then is just what the preacher tells us, fear God and keep his commandments. Ecclesiastes is a difficult book. There are blunt words, grim outlooks and despairing conclusions. Forgive me if you were offended by the preacher's description of old age today, for example. As I said in my first sermon in this Ecclesiastes series. Martin Luther considered this to be a most optimistic book. Martin Luther was the great reformer who began the Reformation in 1517, and he considered this to be the most optimistic book. What he saw in Ecclesiastes is a book that has explored all the possible rabbit trails that we might pursue all the possible avenues under the sun to find happiness and satisfaction and joy. He exposes them all as a fraud. He shows that every single one of these cannot provide what we are looking for. So what he's doing is to clear away the debris, to get rid of what may cloud our vision, to get rid of what may be a confusion. Much study and much anticipation and attempts to find satisfaction in this life is a weariness to the flesh. He's done that for us, and he's cleared away these false ideas about how to live, especially by clinging to the vanity of this world. So that once that debris is cleared away, the gospel then can shine all the more radiantly. The gospel tells us not about a life hack, not about a quick fix, not about how to have your best life now. The gospel tells us that Jesus Christ came into this world, the one who is above the sun, who came down from heaven into this earth, so that he could lift us up to God. Fear God and keep his commandments. Well, let's unpack what that means, because it gets at what the gospel is. Again, the idea of fearing God is to believe, it's faith. It's to have faith in God and what the Bible tells us after everything else has been cleared away, and we can see the gospel in its radiance, is that we are to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ with the promise that all those who believe on the Lord Jesus Christ shall be saved. There are so many proposals in life for how to find salvation. You can find anywhere all kinds of ideas about how to do the right good works, about how to sacrifice personally in your own life, about how to do the right collection of religious practices to appease God. The scriptures are so clear you are dead in your sins and trespasses. You are a child of wrath. You are without hope and without God in the world. There is nothing you can do to counteract this. You cannot do enough community service hours to overcome the wrath of God against you because of your sins. You need nothing less than the death and resurrection of God's only Son, the Lord of Glory. Fear God, then. He is the judge of the living and the dead, the judge of all the Earth, and he will surely do what was right. He will bring every deed in a judgment on the last day and he will by no means clear the guilty. Fear him, the Bible commands. Again, the other part of fearing him is not just to cower before him, not just to acknowledge your helplessness and hopelessness and vulnerability and guilt before him. It means to take him at his word. To believe the promises that he makes. The promise of salvation for all those who turn from their sins in sorrow. As we heard earlier today to consider his word, to confess our sins and to hear the assurance of God's pardon through the gospel of Jesus Christ. The question is, will you believe his promises? We turn to Christ for salvation. That's what this book is driving at. Clear away everything else that's getting in the way and turn to Jesus Christ, whom the rest of the scriptures hold out as your only hope and comfort in life and in death. Fear God. But also keep his commandments. In addition to the saving grace of justification by faith alone, another one of God's saving graces is as the Westminster Larger Catechism question thirty-two, puts it, "To enable us unto all holy obedience as the evidence of the truth of our faith and thankfulness to God and as the way which he hath appointed us to salvation." Now, listen to that God's commandments are the way to salvation. Now, not the way to gain salvation. We don't keep commandments to gain salvation. This is rather the way that God has appointed for those whom he has saved. It's not how we are saved, by keeping the commandments, it's what we are saved for. Again, Ephesians 2:8-9 says, "It is by grace you have been saved through faith and this is not your own doing. It is the gift of God, not by works", not by keeping the commandments well enough". so that no one may boast." But in verse 10, the very next verse, he says, "for we are his workmanship created in Christ Jesus for good works", for keeping the commandments, "which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in." We are saved not by keeping the commandments, we are saved for keeping the commandments. God has appointed these good works that we should walk in them as a people whom God has brought out of death and into life. You see, for the believer, God's commandments are no longer a thundering word of condemnation against our sin. That's the warning of the Bible if you have not yet trusted in Jesus Christ, God's word sounds as a thunder blast from heaven, declaring that you are guilty and in danger of the wrath of God for all of eternity. For believers, in the words of John Newton, the man who wrote Amazing Grace, "Christ has hushed the laws loud thunder", and he has done this, "so that justice smiles and asks no more." There's nothing else that you need to do because Christ has done everything that justice demands. The law then is transformed from our enemy, our persecutor, our oppressor, our condemning agent into a friend. Not by anything that we have done, but through Christ. Christ reorient us to the law through Christ, we relate to the law in a new way. He makes that introduction in a friendly way. The commandments of God then teaches how to please God through holy lives. So as we've seen all of the false ways to live and as the preacher has exhorted us at many points toward the wisdom of the fear of God, the wisdom that begins with the fear of the Lord. I want to ask you, do you long for the holiness without which no one will see the Lord? Do you delight in the law of God in your inner man and your inner person? Do you pray that God would conform you to the image of Christ and to righteousness, holiness and knowledge? The only alternative to Christ is this vain world where everything ultimately breaks. Don't put your trust there. Put your trust instead in Christ. As the apostle John writes in 1 John 2:17, "this world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever." "Vanity of vanity, says the preacher, all is vanity." In a view of that and in view of eternity. Fear God, looking to Jesus Christ in faith, and keep his commandments. Let's pray. Heavenly Father, we pray for a heart of wisdom, wisdom that comes from above that is first pure and peaceable, not wisdom that is from below and is earthly and spiritual and demonic. We pray that you would give us the wisdom of Jesus Christ crucified that we would look to him as our alone confidence, our alone assurance, our alone hope and comfort of salvation. That through Christ, you might relate us to the law in new way, not to gain something, because we can gain nothing before you, we can earn nothing from you. But to live a life that's really related to you as your children, as your people who are growing in the holiness without which no one will see the Lord. Who are being conformed to the image of Christ, by your grace, by your mercy, by your power. We pray that this would all be to your glory through Jesus Christ name we pray. Amen.

Now the high priest said, “Are these things so?” 2 And Stephen said, “Listen to me, brothers and fathers! The God of glory appeared to our father Abraham when he was in Mesopotamia, before he lived in Haran, 3 and He said to him, ‘Go from your country and your relatives, and come to the land which I will show you.' 4 Then he left the land of the Chaldeans and settled in Haran. And from there, after his father died, God had him move to this country in which you are now living. 5 But He gave him no inheritance in it, not even a foot of ground, and yet, He promised that He would give it to him as a possession, and to his descendants after him, even though he had no child. 6 But God spoke to this effect, that his descendants would be strangers in a land that was not theirs, and they would enslave and mistreat them for four hundred years. 7 ‘And whatever nation to which they are enslaved I Myself will judge,' said God, ‘andafter that they will come out and serve Me in this place.' 8 And He gave him the covenant of circumcision; and so Abrahamfathered Isaac, and circumcised him on the eighth day; and Isaac fathered Jacob, and Jacob, the twelve patriarchs. 9 “The patriarchs became jealous of Joseph and sold him into Egypt. Yet God was with him, 10 and rescued him from all his afflictions, and granted him favor and wisdom in the sight of Pharaoh, king of Egypt, and he made him governor over Egypt and his entire household. 11 “Now a famine came over all Egypt and Canaan, and great affliction with it, and our fathers could find no food. 12 But when Jacob heard that there was grain in Egypt, he sent our fathers therethe first time. 13 And on the second visit, Joseph made himself known to his brothers, and Joseph's family was revealed to Pharaoh. 14 Then Joseph sent word and invited his father Jacob and all his relatives to come to him, seventy-five people in all.15 And Jacob went down to Egypt, and he and our fathers died there. 16 And they were brought back from there to Shechem and laid in the tomb which Abraham had purchased for a sum of money from the sons of Hamor in Shechem. 17 “But as the time of the promise which God had assured to Abraham was approaching, the people increased and multiplied in Egypt, 18 until another king arose over Egypt who did not know Joseph. 19 It was he who shrewdly took advantage of our nation and mistreated our fathers in order that they would abandon their infants in the Nile, so that they would not survive. 20 At this time Moses was born; and he was beautiful to God. He was nurtured for three months in his father's home. 21 And after he had been put outside, Pharaoh's daughter took him away and nurtured him as her own son. 22 Moses was educated in all the wisdom of the Egyptians, and he was proficient in speaking and action. 23 But when he was approaching the age of forty, it entered his mind to visit his countrymen, the sons of Israel. 24 And when he saw one of them being treated unjustly, he defended and took vengeance for the oppressed man by fatally striking the Egyptian. 25 And he thought that his brothers understood that God was granting them deliverance through him; but they did not understand. 26 And on the following day he appeared to them as they were fighting each other, and he tried to reconcile them to peace, by saying, ‘Men, you are brothers, why are you injuring each other?' 27 But the one who was injuring his neighbor pushed him away, saying, ‘Who made you a ruler and judge over us? 28 You do not intend to kill me as you killed the Egyptian yesterday, do you?' 29 At this remark, Moses fled and became a stranger in the land of Midian, where he fathered two sons. 30 “After forty years had passed, an angel appeared to him in the wilderness of Mount Sinai, in the flame of a burning thorn bush.31 When Moses saw it, he was astonished at the sight; and as he approached to look more closely, the voice of the Lord came: 32 ‘I am the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob.' Moses shook with fear and did not dare to look closely.33 But the Lord said to him, ‘Remove your sandals from your feet, for the place on which you are standing is holy ground.34 I have certainly seen the oppression of My people who are in Egypt, and have heard their groaning, and I have come down to rescue them; and now come, I will send you to Egypt.' 35 “This Moses whom they disowned, saying, ‘Who made you a ruler and a judge?' is the one whom God sent to be both a ruler and a deliverer with the help of the angel who appeared to him in the thorn bush. 36 This man led them out, performing wonders and signs in the land of Egypt and in the Red Sea, and in the wilderness for forty years. 37 This is the Moses who said to the sons of Israel, ‘God will raise up for you a prophet like me from your countrymen.' 38 This is the one who was in the assembly in the wilderness together with the angel who spoke to him at length on Mount Sinai, and who was with our fathers; and he received living words to pass on to you. 39 Our fathers were unwilling to be obedient to him; on the contrary they rejected him and turned back to Egypt in their hearts, 40 saying to Aaron, ‘Make us a god who will go before us; for this Moses who led us out of the land of Egypt—we do not know what happened to him.' 41 At that time they made a calf and brought a sacrifice to the idol, and were rejoicing in the works of their hands. 42 But God turned away and gave them over to serve the heavenly lights; as it is written in the book of the prophets: ‘You did not offer Me victims and sacrifices for forty years in the wilderness, did you, house of Israel? 43 You also took along the tabernacle of Moloch and the star of your god Rompha, the images which you made to worship. I also will deport you beyond Babylon.' 44 “Our fathers had the tabernacle of testimony in the wilderness, just as He who spoke to Moses directed him to make it according to the pattern which he had seen. 45 Our fathers in turn received it, and they also brought it in with Joshua upon dispossessing the nations that God drove out from our fathers, until the time of David.46 David found favor in God's sight, and asked that he might find a dwelling place for the house of Jacob. 47 But it was Solomon who built a house for Him. 48 However, the Most High does not dwell in houses made by human hands; as the prophet says: 49 ‘Heaven is My throne, And the earth is the footstool of My feet; What kind of house will you build for Me?' says the Lord, ‘Or what place is there for My rest? 50 Was it not My hand that made all these things?' 51 “You men who are stiff-necked and uncircumcised in heart and ears are always resisting the Holy Spirit; you are doing just as your fathers did. 52 Which one of the prophets did your fathers not persecute? They killed those who had previously announced the coming of the Righteous One, and you have now become betrayers and murderers of Him; 53 you who received the Law as ordained by angels, and yet did not keep it.” 54 Now when they heard this, they were infuriated, and they begangnashing their teeth at him. 55 But he, being full of the Holy Spirit, looked intently into heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God; 56 and he said, “Behold, I see the heavens opened and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God.” 57 But they shouted with loud voices, and covered their ears and rushed at him with one mind. 58 When they had driven him out of the city, they began stoning him; and the witnesses laid aside their cloaks at the feet of a young man named Saul. 59 They went on stoning Stephen as he called on the Lord and said, “Lord Jesus, receive my spirit!” 60 Then he fell on his knees and cried out with a loud voice, “Lord, do not hold this sin against them!” Having said this, he fell asleep.   SUBSCRIBE - To subscribe for updates, more resources, and downloadable notes and more details visit https://www.listenerscommentary.com     Want to get more out of your Bible reading?

"I believe there is a formula that can reduce the risk of burnout and save primary care, rooted in one key objective: Remove work from primary care doctors and nursing staff's plates immediately. Easier said than done. And that's where technology and clinical navigation must be leveraged — to assist, facilitate, streamline, and support. Where EMR messages, not requiring doctor expertise, are responded to by clinical navigators harnessing technology to guide patients to the right outcome. Where these teams of clinical navigators are integrated into the clinical pyramid and delegated all tasks that do not require physician attention. Integrated technology + navigation = relief." Ronald Dixon is an internal medicine physician. He shares his story and discusses his KevinMD article, "As doctor burnout climbs, can we save primary care?"

This is the second time that today's guest has appeared on Welcome Home to the Suburbs, but this time we're discussing something different. With so much going on in the industry at this time, I wanted to bring a top professional, Renée Biery, back on the podcast to share what we need to know as homeowners looking to do renovation projects! Renée deVignier Biery, ASID, is an interior designer based in Wilmington, Delaware. In 1994 she earned an Associate degree in Applied Science in Interior Design with distinction, from New York School of Interior Design, one of the country's oldest conservatory interior design programs. Biery honed her skills working in the design field in New York. She began in 1993 as an associate in the legendary Lexington Avenue boutique of Charlotte Moss, and then spent several years as a senior designer in the firm of Barbara Hauben Ross, a New York designer especially known for luxury Art Deco interiors. During her time in New York, Biery honed her skills in historical and architectural renovation, as well as modern color, shape and structure. This experience structured her approach of a quietly pared-down viewpoint that balances more embellished, traditional environments. Biery is formally trained in practical interior architecture with advanced technical and rendering proficiency. Her credentials include NCIDQ board licensing as a professional member of the ASID, the design industry's highest certification. Biery returned permanently to Wilmington in 2000 and established her own firm, deVignier design, inc. She works in restoration as well as new construction, and remains committed to the personal attention of a studio practice where she is fully involved from inception to installation with every assignment.

The way you handle customer complaints can make or break your company. Today, companies often look for a quick and easy way to deal with complaints. Automated options are a good resource, but you can't let technology take the place of truly serving your customer. Disney is known for its customer service and how they handle complaints. They investigate each one with a personal call. That in and of itself can serve to resolve issues. People need to feel heard, and having the opportunity to talk with someone who genuinely cares about their experience goes a long way in handling issues. Couple that with a quick response, and you will be leaps and bounds ahead of the competition. People want to know that they aren't just a number. Personal contact and solutions show customers they are valued, which cultivates customer loyalty. For smaller companies, you can still offer top-notch customer service. Make sure your train your employees to handle complaints. Equip them with a clear understanding of what they can do to correct a situation versus what needs to be escalated is the first step. Don't take complaints personally or get emotional when you receive one. Respond as quickly as you can. Remove uncertainty and let your customer know you are handling the situation. Lastly, have a system in place to ensure whatever you committed to doing gets done. Whether you are a large or small business, a personal touch goes a long way. People want to be individually served and heard. Don't take complaints personally, and do your best to personalize solutions and service.

Wanna know how to remove cobwebs from high ceilings? We use the Doca Pole https://amzn.to/3wLsD90 with an artichoke-looking brush. It's actually part of a kit that is designed just for tall areas like ceiling fans, entry windows, and ledges. You can use the wall duster or recessed light bulb attachments for other deep cleaning projects as well but today I'll show you why I prefer and recommend this brand to all the cleaning companies I consult for. Note: There are some cheap knock-off versions of this on Amazon - and it will be tempting to pay half the price for what seems to be the same thing. I really don't care which one you buy but please know that the brackets on other models that hold the extension pole in place often don't stay. So while you are trying to clean using a competitor brand, the pole will slide back into itself and you'll get really mad at yourself for wasting your money. Note 2: I also recommend the 24 ft pole over the 18 ft. pole. You can still only use it for 18ft if that is all you need. But if you ever go outside to extend the pole with your smartphone on the end as a camera looking for a leak in your roof - you'll wish you had the 24 ft pole. (The 30 ft gets a little hard to manage when fully extended at 30 ft.) *** HOW TO REMOVE COBWEBS CHAPTERS *** 0:00 - Why are there cobwebs in my house? 0:27 - Where do cobwebs come from? 0:49 - Why do spiders abandon their webs? 1:10 - Why Angela Brown, the House Cleaning Guru uses the Doca Pole 1:56 - The lightweight durable extension pole reduces arm fatigue 2:07 - The resin wheel adjusts the head in any angle 2:42 - How to wash the cobwebs out of the reusable brush 3:11 - Ask your house cleaner if they offer this service.

Jo joins Lee this week to talk about her groundbreaking, empowering story, and what we can all learn about breaking barriers in order to achieve more and change the world for the better. KEY TAKEAWAYS Sometimes, when the things we want aren't available, we must look elsewhere for opportunities, even though these opportunities may sound wild at the time. When you start a job or new branch of your career, all we really want is not to stand out. Trailblazers like Jo stand out naturally, which increases the pressure immeasurably. When we stand out from the pack in obvious ways, the best thing to do is to set an example and get through the work, showing that we are capable, despite people's preconceptions. Belief in ourselves comes through proving to ourselves that we can be more than we think. Remove doubts and look ahead. BEST MOMENTS 'I didn't know what I was getting into, to be honest' 'I'm an independently-minded girl' 'I was wearing a man's outfit, which was a lovely look for a 17 year-old' 'I don't fear anything' VALUABLE RESOURCES Business Problems Solved Podcast        Jo Reynolds - https://www.josephine-reynolds.com Jo Reynolds Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/SamuiJoReynolds/ https://www.facebook.com/FireWomanJo1 Jo Reynolds Twitter - https://twitter.com/FireWomanJo1 Jo Reynolds Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/fire_woman_josephine/ Jo Reynolds LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/atzeropercent/ Email - josephinereynolds815@gmail.com Unique design Rebel Slogan T's - https://firewoman.teemill.com/ Signed Author Copies of Fire Woman - https://fire-woman.sumup.link/ ABOUT THE HOST For the last 15 years, I have been a multi-sector internal or external business improvement consultant, building the improved capability of individuals, teams and businesses.

Feel free to pause, jump back, or navigate the steps via the podcast chapters.If you're cooking along, here's the recipe we're making today; go ahead and grab the ingredients below (Francis starts listing them at 3:17), and start the episode when you're ready to cook.Chinese American Thanksgiving Meatballs2 tablespoons vegetable oil1 bunch scallion, finely chopped7 cloves garlic, very finely minced1/4 pound stemmed fresh shiitake mushrooms, medium diceDiamond Crystal kosher salt, plus more as needed2 tablespoons oyster sauce1 tablespoon sesame oil2 tablespoons sugar1 bunch scallion, finely chopped7 cloves garlic, very finely minced1 pound ground turkey1/2 pound ground porkSauce3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil4 teaspoons peeled, finely minced ginger (from 1 1/2-inch piece)1 (28-ounce) can diced tomatoesSear mushrooms: Heat the vegetable oil over high heat in a large saute pan. When the oil is shimmering-hot, carefully add the mushrooms and spread them out into one layer as best you can. Let sear, undisturbed, until richly browned, about 1 minute. Toss, spread out again, and let sear for another minute. Remove mushrooms from heat, season with salt to taste, and transfer to a medium bowl to cool. Mix marinade: In a small bowl, combine the oyster sauce, sesame oil, 4 teaspoons sugar, 2 teaspoons Diamond Crystal kosher salt, and the chicken stock. Mix aromatics: Add ½ cup of the chopped scallion and 3 cloves of finely minced garlic to the bowl with the mushrooms and stir to combine. Make meatball mixture: Place the turkey and pork in a large mixing bowl and gently fold them together with your hands to start to combine. Pour in the marinade. Hold the fingers of one hand apart, as if holding a softball. Using that hand, stir the meat in one direction to mix in the marinade, being sure to agitate all the meat. When the meat has absorbed all the liquid and the mixture has gotten a bit sticky or tacky, stop. Add the mushroom mixture and gently fold to combine. Cover and let marinate for up to 4 hours. Make sauce: Set aside 2 tablespoons of scallions for garnish. In a Dutch oven or other large, lidded braising pan, heat the olive oil over high heat until you see the first wisps of smoke. Add 4 cloves of minced garlic and stir until very aromatic, about 15 seconds. Add the ginger and stir until very aromatic, about 15 seconds. Add the remaining scallions and stir for 15 seconds. Add the can of tomatoes, bring it to a boil, and reduce heat to a simmer. Season with 2 teaspoons sugar and salt to taste. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes. Form and cook meatballs: Meanwhile, use a large soup spoon to scoop up the meat mixture and using your hands, very lightly pat out 1 1/2-inch diameter meatballs. Set them on a plate. (You should have about 24 meatballs). After the sauce has simmered for 15 minutes, remove the lid and gently add the meatballs in one layer. Adjust heat to a bare simmer and cover the pot. Let poach / steam until the meatballs are just cooked through, 10-12 minutes. Serve: Garnish with the reserved scallions and serve.Is there a Food52 recipe you'd like to hear us make?

The pumpkin twist on the sourdough is perfect for the fall season.  I suggest dividing the dough into two, shaping round and then adding an egg wash with a cinnamon stick in the middle. Cinnamon sticks can be found here Amazon.com : Yamees Cinnamon Sticks - 2 3/4" Length - 1 Pound (8 Oz Each) - 2 Pack of Cinnamon Sticks - Bulk Spices : Grocery & Gourmet Food  Right before baking, score from top to bottom to resemble a pumpkin.   You can check out the YouTube link.  https://youtu.be/Evjb9F34mIg     Sourdough Starter 3/4 cup Water 3/4 cup Honey  2 Tablespoons Yeast 1 package of yeast or ¾ Tablespoon Salt 1 Tablespoon White Flour 3 1/4 cups (hold back ¼ cup) Wheat flour 1 cup Brown Sugar 3T Pumpkin Puree ½ cup Cinnamon 1 tsp. After kneading, place the dough back in the mixer bowl, cover with a damp towel and let rise in a warm place for approximately one hour or until the dough doubles in bulk. Literally, punch the dough down with your fist. Then REFRIGERATE OVERNIGHT to get more sourness. Remove from the refrigerator, about four hours before planning to bake. Can go longer depending upon the temperature of your room. A cooler room allows the dough to warm up slower, which is always good for sourdoughs. Let the dough warm up in one big glob. Divide in two equal parts and shape round. Place a cinnamon stick on the top, and egg wash the round loaf. Let proof for 15-30 minutes, and then right before putting it in the oven, slash with a sharp knife or razor blade top to bottom in six different evenly spaced lines to mimic the look of a pumpkin. We originally ordered twine and laid 4- 10 inch strands on the table in a star shape. Start with a cross, and then add the two diagonal strands with one on each side. Place the round loaf in the center and loop up the strands to the top, tie with a 1.5 inches higher to allow the dough to rise and also spring in the oven. This is tricky and we had loafs too big of indents or lopsided, and then it took more labor to unknot it so we went with clothes pins to gather to the top. They can turn out beautifully, but just not an efficient use of time in a working bakery. Spray with water prior to baking and every ten minutes during the baking process, mist with water for a harder crust. Bake at 425 degrees for 15-20 minutes until you see a darker crust. Turn down the oven to 350 degrees and continue baking for another 15-25 minutes until internal temperature reaches 185. Please subscribe and share this podcast with another bread head.

The Seven Streams Method

Download Deuteronomy 7-11 We are in the Wisdom Stream reading from the New Living Translation. 7streamsmethod.com | @7StreamsMethod | @serenatravis | #7Streams | Donate Commentary by Dr. Drake Travis Lord Jesus, thank you for making your plans for us to follow so clear. We want to be following you clearly and you have made the way very clear for us.  Thank you. Amen. This is a salient section of the grand pep-talk  Moses is giving prior to entering Canaan. 7 - can a bride [wearing a wedding dress] work a shift on a commercial fishing vessel right before walking in to be married? Can she spend a day working on an oil rig (in her wedding dress!) and then head straight to the altar for her vows? Can she, wearing her white gown, help the guys pour a concrete courtyard (the rubber boots should keep her dress from dragging in it, right?!) and then be fresh for the ceremony? a 1,000 times "no!" Neither can the Israelites associate with the ghastly pagan peoples that inhabit Canaan - not in any way. Remove them or you will become them.  And consequently, if you become them, God cannot use you..and you will be disposed of without a whimper.  So after you remove the Canaanites, et al., flatten their world and structures as well.  Do not be enamored with any of it.-dispose of it all.  Following God is going to have comprehensive blessings for you and yours and everything you work with and everything you own. You will be utterly victorious at every turn, in farming, animal husbandry, and in battle.  Follow ME and thrive! 8 -Moses recalls for all of them the fascinating, miraculous, and particular care the Israelites received during the sojourn through the desert.  They were fed, clothed, watered, healed, shielded, doctored, protected, led, blessed and more.  For 40 years without fail, God never even looked away.  And God's careful guidance would not leave them in the future, provided they obey.  Any questions? No, skip it, He's not fielding any questions on this. 9 - They were soon to be heading in across the Jordan to a wondrous land set up for them to readily occupy. Giants? Who's afraid of giants? They will fall like severed reeds at God's command. And as the Israelites go in they were not to think of themselves as paragon privileged prissies. God is using them because God is gracious.  They needed to be forgiven of so much while in the desert. Their rebellion and penchant to stray was incorrigible. Never forget that and start acting like the snot-nose brat who is owed something.  And they were to be grateful for Moses' pastoral care standing in and pleading their pathetic cause after each sin.  I.e., You are going into Canaan because God is good, not because you are good. So keep that in the fore of your thinking, and remain grateful. 10 - Next Moses recalled for them the ordeal at Sinai wherein the second set of Commandment Tablets was made for them.  Yes, God isn't the only one who is angry and disappointed with your rebellion! You remember the other sundry matters from those days, ok ok - the clincher is this: you know what God requires of you. Don't act like you can't read the map or find the map or that you cant' remember that you even have a map to follow.  You don't get coupons or credit of any ribbons for playing stupid with God.  YOU KNOW what God wants from you. Look at yourselves....there are millions of you now. You used to be a band of 70, yet I blessed you. And the huge army of Egypt before the Exodus? Where are they now? I sunk them.  Take a hint here and don't be stubborn with God.  He can do whatever He wants with whomever He wants. And YOU KNOW how to stay on His good side. 11 - is a great chapter as is Deut. 6 & 28 that recites the blessings for obedience, devotion, and living by God's Word.  The blessings will be national as well as personal and detailed, provided the Law is followed. It must be followed deliberately, completely, and permanently.  This not a nonchalant matter by any means. Don't be deceived or grow lax. Evil could pounce in a moment if you stray.  Your obedience will affect you, and the land, the harvest, the weather, your health and families, domestic tranquility, everything.  There is blessing for following God. There is cursing for following another.  And remember, no coupons are given out for playing stupid.

A New 'Filipinx' Cookbook

All Of It

Play Episode Listen Later Nov 10, 2021 13:38


In her debut cookbook, Filipinx: Heritage Recipes from the Diaspora, chef Angela Dimayuga explores the recipes that remind her of home, growing up as one of the more than four million people of Filipino descent in the United States. Dimayuga comes on to talk the new cookbook, and showcase her take on the classic Filipino dishes she grew up eating. Coconut Milk Chicken Adoboah • DOH • bohSERVES 6 TO 8Adobo is probably the Filipino dish best known and least understood by Westerners. Like the name of the Philippines itself—imposed by Spanish colonialists in the sixteenth century in honor of their king, Philip II—it bears the lexical imprint of a foreign empire. In 1613, a Franciscan friar, attempting to compile a Tagalog dictionary, reached for the Spanish verb adobar to describe the dousing of ingredients with vinegar, to season and pickle. But that technique of preservation, essential in a tropical climate, long predated his arrival. Adobo is an indigenous dish, and one that contains multitudes, with no two recipes alike.Vinegar is the constant. Here I use coconut vinegar (see page 179 if you're feeling ambitious and want to make your own!), along with coconut milk and coconut oil—three forms of coconut, to bring silkiness without heaviness. (Coconut milk adobo, or adobo sagata, is a tried-and-true variation in the Philippines but a little less common in the U.S.) It's just as good if you substitute rice vinegar or diluted white or apple cider vinegar. And the chicken is just a suggestion: You could roast or steam a whole fish and pour the adobo over it, or sear mushrooms, fresh langka (jackfruit), or big meaty chunks of cauliflower and throw them in as the stew simmers down and turns thick.2 tablespoons coconut oil, store-bought or homemade (page 193)2 teaspoons whole black peppercorns1 teaspoon coarsely cracked black pepper1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes4 pounds (1.8 kg) chicken drumsticks and thighs, bone in and skin on15 garlic cloves, smashed and peeled1 cup (240 ml) unsweetened, full-fat coconut milk1/2 cup (120 ml) coconut vinegar (store-bought or homemade, page 179) or rice vinegar1/2 cup (120 ml) soy sauce8 bay leaves, fresh or dried1 whole fresh serrano chileSteamed rice, for servingIn a large pot, heat the coconut oil on medium until shimmering. Add the whole peppercorns, coarsely cracked black pepper, and red pepper flakes. Lay the drumsticks and thighs in the pan, skin side down, and raise the heat to medium high. Cook for about 5 minutes, resisting the urge to poke and prod; just let the chicken cook undisturbed, until the fat starts to render, melting into the pan, and the skin turns slightly brown. Using kitchen tweezers or tongs, flip over the chicken.Add the garlic, coconut milk, vinegar, soy sauce, bay leaves, serrano chile, and 1 cup (240 ml) water. Let the mixture come to a boil. Put a lid on the pot, reduce the heat to medium low, and simmer for 1 to 1ó hours, stirring occasionally. The chicken should feel loose, almost—but not yet—ready to slip off the bone.Remove the lid, raise the temperature to medium high, and reduce the sauce by cooking uncovered for another 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the sauce is thick as velvet.Serve over rice, to soak up the sauce.

Jane Wurwand is the Founder and Chief Visionary of Dermalogica, the number one professional skincare brand in the world.At the young age of 24, Jane immigrated to California and saw a distinct lack of continuing education with skin therapists in the US. Without a college degree or network, she set out to launch her own skin therapy education with only $14,000 in a small classroom in Los Angeles. This led her to also develop a line of skincare products and a system of teaching salon owners how to use them which is now a multi-million dollar international brand with a cult-like following. Under Jane's leadership, Dermalogica has grown to be the leading professional skincare brand, used by more than 100,000 skin therapists in more than 100 countries. Dermalogica sold to Unilever in 2015 and the brand continues to be the most respected and requested professional skincare line in the world. In 2018, Jane launched FOUND/LA, a nonprofit initiative offering funding, mentorship, unique incubator programs, and educational resources for entrepreneurs who have been underserved. She also recently published her book, “Skin in the Game”, which Harvard Business Review called ‘brilliant', and is the go-to guide for readers looking for their true purpose and the opportunity to live their biggest life.We'll talk to Jane about how to turn your pain into the key to your success, find a deeper significance in life by connecting the dots, and use your authenticity as a tool for materializing your dreams.In this episode, we talk to Jane about:* Advice for women who feel that their baggage is holding them back.
