I have some silly quirks. Well, okay, a lot of silly quirks.

One of my silly quirks is this: When I make a recipe for the first time, I don’t care how involved or complicated it is, or how many ingredients it requires; I find it fun to make new recipes, and I just go with the flow. However, if I’m going to make something regularly, it’s usually going to be something fairly simple, and preferably something whose ingredients and directions I can memorize.

Now, my family Really, Really, REALLY wants to have that apple cake from Friday often. Every day would be fine, but they’ll settle for once in a while. And you’ll probably laugh at this part, but the 3/4 cup of this and 3/4 teaspoon of that was a bit of a dealbreaker for me.

So I rewrote the recipe to suit a more streamlined approach, and then I tested it. Here’s how it looked:

apple cake

And here are the new quantities. The directions are as in the book, which you should totally buy (if you buy it from my links, the proceeds go to the Alameda County Community Food Bank), except I baked it for an hour and 10 minutes before it was really done, and it could have gone a smidge longer.

Streamlined Apple Cake

1 cup flour
1 tsp. baking powder
pinch of salt
5-6 large apples (I had 5 large and one small, so that’s what I used)
3 large eggs
1 cup sugar
no rum (I don’t cook with rum)
1 tablespoon vanilla
11 tablespoons butter

[Update: It really is better Dorie’s way, so I’ll just deal with my laziness. James went out today to buy BUNCHES of apples, because he wants me to make TWO cakes next time!]

Traveling to exotic places, spending time in ships or submarines and staying in nice hotels all over the world are just some of the benefits of being a jordan sale marine biologist. Many times marine biologists get to go on expeditions for a few months to such places as Aruba, Cuba and the Philippines. ray bans sale Then when finished they may get to take a few months off until their next assignment.RAY RICE: You know, the pain that I’m talking about living with is that is waking up every day and my daughter’s two years old cheap china jerseys now and I have a little girl who’s very smart very intelligent, and one day, she’s going to know the power of Google. And we have to explain that to her you know, what happened that night.The medical Cheap Jerseys term for tennis elbow is Lateral Epicondylitis. Lateral is a term for anatomical position and means the tendonitis is on the outside of the elbow away from your body. Epicondyle is Latin and refers to the end part of the humerus or upper arm bone. Epi means and condyle means It hurts where the tendons and muscles attach to the bone area called the epicondyle. There may be a tear or only a strain. Those who suffer from tennis elbow cheap China Jerseys represent about 3% of the population and usually they are between 30 to 50 years of age. The symptoms are pain on the outside of the elbow when having to forcefully grip anything. Sometimes it hurts just to shake hands or use a knife and fork. There may or may not be visible inflammation.A distribution deal with National Beverage Corp. (FIZ) for up to 35 m cases (of cans) per year (Jones supplies concentrate; National Beverage produces the cans and distributes nationally to retail stores). Agreements with national retail stores including Safeway (NYSE:SWY), Albertsons, Walmart (NYSE:WMT), Kroger (NYSE:KR), Target (NYSE:TGT), Publix (OTC:PUSH), etc to begin carrying Jones products in their stores with cans being the main focus. This increases Jones’ availability from the last year’s ray ban sunglasses 2% retail outlets to an estimate of 25% retail outlets by the end of 2007 and 50% by the end of 2008. The company’s experiences in April, Cheap Jerseys along with channel checks at the retail stores, indicate that the sell through is tending to be much better than originally estimated.Genetic modulation of corticospinal motor neurons (CSMN) is required for developing effective and long term treatment strategies for motor neuron diseases, in which voluntary movement is impaired. Adeno associated viruses (AAV) have been widely used for neuronal transduction studies owing to long term and stable gene expression as well as low immunoreactivity in humans. Here we report that AAV2 2 transduces CSMN with high efficiency upon direct cortex injection and that transduction efficiencies are similar during presymptomatic and symptomatic stages in hSOD1G93A transgenic amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) mice. Our findings reveal that choice of promoter improves selectivity as AAV2 2 chicken promoter injection results in about 70 CSMN transduction, the highest percentage reported to date. CSMN transduction in both wild type and transgenic ALS mice allows detailed analysis of single axon fibers within the corticospinal tract in both cervical and lumbar spinal cord and reveals circuitry defects, which mainly occur between CSMN and spinal motor neurons in hSOD1G93A transgenic ALS mice. Our findings set the stage for CSMN gene therapy in ALS and related motor neuron diseases.

    1. Hee! The thought of there being any of this cake left over gives me the giggles. We have to cut it in equal pieces to stake our claims and make sure everyone gets some, or the first ones to know there’s cake will eat it all! :-)
