America On Fire

Last Monday, people the world over watched the video of a man, we now know to be George Floyd, dying at the hands of 4 police officers.

One week later, we see curfews imposed and the National Guard called in many states, after widespread rioting, looting and arson.

Whilst Mr. Floyds may have been the match that lit a powder keg of events currently unfolding, it hardly seems unlikely that it is the sole reason behind it.


Simple Glazed Donut Recipe

About 2 weekends ago, my mom was bake sausage rolls and curry chicken pastries, and decided that she felt like making something sweet.

Eventually, we settled on making donuts. Here’s the recipe we used:

Donut Ingredients:

• 1 cup (240ml) whole milk, lukewarm.
• 1 packet active dry yeast(10g).
• 1/4 cup (50g) granulated sugar.
•2 large eggs.
• 6 Tablespoons (86g) butter, melted and slightly cooled.
• 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract.
• 4 cups (490g) all-purpose flour (spoon & leveled), plus more as needed.
• 1/2 teaspoon salt.
