Put Eggs in Warm Water to Bring Them to Room Temp
Pastry Chef Chris Teixera of The Fifty/50 Restaurant Group in Chicago, IL says baking with room temperature ingredients is often best to ensure ingredients emulsify fully, but if you don’t have time to let eggs sit out, placing them in warm water for 15 to 20 minutes can have the same effect.
Make Your Own Cake Flour
“If you’re working with a recipe that calls for cake flour but all you’ve got is all-purpose flour, you can easily make your own,” says Karina Orozco, pastry chef at Spill the Beans in San Diego. To do this, Orozco says to measure one cup of all-purpose flour, remove two tablespoons and in its place add two tablespoons of cornstarch. That’s it!

CDC to E-Scooter Riders:
Please, for the Love of God, Do the Absolute Bare Minimum Safety Thing.
Amidst a rise in reports that emergency rooms are seeing a spike in visits from people who have seriously messed themselves up while riding electric scooters.
The CDC began the study after Austin’s Transportation Department and Public Health agencies requested that it investigate the surge in accidents.
CNBC reports that the study shows (unsurprisingly) the greatest risk of riding an e-scooter is hitting the pavement with your face. According to the study, 45 percent of e-scooter accidents result in head injuries.
The clearest take away from the study: wear a damn helmet.
“A high proportion of e-scooter related injuries involved potentially preventable risk factors, such as lack of helmet use, or motor vehicle interaction,” a summary of the study states.
According to the CDC study, the most common wound after head injuries involved upper limb fracture, followed by lower limb fractures. About 14 rides out of every 100,000 lead to injuries, the study reportedly found.
