Stuffed zucchini blossoms must be one of my favorite dishes in the world -- they remind me of the gorgeous Aegean sea and the summer. I made some last year using this recipe (for the western Turkish version) and they turned out amazing. Make sure you set aside some time though, stuffing the blossoms can be time consuming.

Although I haven't made it yet, I have been eyeing this Raw Cashew Dreamcake (vegan, raw, gluten free "cheesecake"). The sweetness comes from medjool dates and honey, and the cheesiness comes from ground cashews and coconut fat. It looks absolutely droolworthy and I'm excited to try it!

The "default" way to eat tahini in Turkey is to swirl pekmez (grape molasses) into it to make a bread dip. Yum.

Animals with access to high-fructose corn syrup gained 48 percent more weight than those eating a normal diet. In humans, this would be equivalent to a 200-pound man gaining 96 pounds.

First of all, you're misquoting the article. That last sentence is NOT in the actual piece.

Second of all, it's plain wrong. That's not what "gained 48 percent more weight" means. It means that if the man on a normal diet gained 1 pound, the HFCS eating man would gain 1.48 pounds.
