Another experiment! This one involves my recent obsession with Modernist Cuisine's macaroni & cheese recipe. I staged a taste-off with the Cook's Illustrated classic approach.

New Science Fare post, on how your brain is pretty convinced that red-colored drinks are red-flavored - even when they're lime. Bonus ketchup recognition quiz!

How best to store green things in the fridge. Quantified by, among other things, an index of Celery Droopiness.

Hm.. Maybe. It's rare that we have enough veggies to keep around that long. But I want to know the answer. And it's for science!

+Daniel Eling and I were disappointed in the official @MarsCuriosity Twitter feed, so we decided to give the rover an unofficial voice...

Don't be afraid to make caramels from scratch! Follow my lead and (literally) beat them into delicious, sugary submission.

That was good of you to eat all those caramels for science. :)

I do like this! I wish they had gotten someone to proofread it for them, though. Man, I'm such an editor at heart.

Okay, guys, I want to set up a tumblr account to post photos of the nerdy cakes I make. Name suggestions? Bonus points for puns and pithiness.

Also please enjoy this photo of a grouper cake. It was parasitized by gummie worms in honor of +Chelsea Wood 's thesis on marine parasite assemblages.

Oh, man, if only I were a geologist: it could be Earthcakes!

Spent the last 2 days conferring at the Western Society of Naturalists annual meeting. A finer collection of crazy Hawaiian print-type shirts has never been seen. (This is formal conference wear for important male biologists.)

Frickin' Netflix. I was all excited about signing up for streaming, only to find that Netflix gives a big ol' middle finger to the Linux users of the world.

That is quite disappointing.

A few months ago, many lemons were sacrificed in the service of science and deliciousness. Now, a tribute.

Critical synthesis: "Titanic is basically a 3.5-hour-long Zales commercial, only slightly less emotionally compelling."

Pretty clever! There's another cool (but less snarky) meta-Titanic on how it follows Joseph Campbell's Hero's Journey, in a book about writing screenplays called The Writer's Journey. The author has some compelling points about why the story resonated so strongly with people.

(Apparently I failed at being a 15-year-old girl, even when I was one.)
