Ciasto rabarbarowo-kukurydziane

ucierane ciasto rabarbarowo-kukurydziane

Sezon na ucierane, biszkoptowe ciasta z owocami sezonowymi można uznać za otwarty. Z niecierpliwością czekam na pierwsze truskawki z ogródka i jagody kamczackie, które już pojedynczo dojrzewają na krzaczkach. Póki wpadnę w letni wir truskawkowo-jagodowych szaleństw, to rabarbar z powodzeniem umila mi to oczekiwanie. Drożdżówka z rabarbarem, rabarbarowy kompot i ciasto ucierane, kolejne w tym sezonie serwuje kuchnia.

Tym razem sięgnęłam nostalgicznie do książki Nigelli i z kultowej “Jak być domową boginią” wygrzebałam przepis na ciasto jogurtowe z rabarbarem na mące kukurydzianej. Bardzo dobre ciasto w sam raz do popołudniowej herbaty lub kubka kawy – nie za słodkie, puszyste i z małym prawdopodobieństwem powstania zakalca (co w ciastach ucieranych z owocami jest bardzo ważne), bo nadmiar soku z rabarbaru skutecznie wchłonie mąka kukurydziana.

2024 NBA 全明星賽球衣發布

NBA 2024 全明星賽將於 2 月 18 日在印第安納波里斯市 (Indianapolis) 進行,在經歷了數年的賽事改制嘗試,今年的全明星賽將變回傳統的東西區對戰制。

稍早 NBA 官方公布了東西區的先發陣容 – 由粉絲、媒體和球員投票選出,當中粉絲投票佔了 50% 比重,媒體和球員各佔了 25%:

東區先發

  • Giannis Antetokounmpo*
  • Joel Embiid
  • Jayson Tatum
  • Tyrese Haliburton
  • Damian Lillard 

西區先發

  • LeBron James*
  • Kevin Durant
  • Nikola Jokic
  • Luka Doncic
  • Shai Gilgeous-Alexander 

(*為隊長)

其中西區的 Stephen Curry 自 2014 年來,首度在健康的狀況下掉出明星賽先發陣容,儘管他在粉絲投票中高居後衛第二 (第一為 Luka),但在媒體和球員投票中輸給了本季不論球隊戰績或個人表現都沒有話說的 SGA,因此最後由 SGA 擔任西區先發後衛。

主辦城溜馬隊當家後衛 Haliburton 則在三個項目投票都拿下最高,幾名年輕後衛的優異表現同時意味著 NBA 改朝換代的到來。

2024 NBA 全明星賽球衣設計靈感來自印地安納州,球衣回歸傳統的藍色和紅色作為東西兩區的隊色,字體和邊飾選用了奶油色,搭配球衣本體較深的藍色和紅色,營造出濃厚的復古氣息。

NBA 2024 明星賽球衣

 

  • 球衣本體的條紋象徵了賽道,印第安納波里斯 500 大賽是世界上歷史最悠久的賽車比賽,當地每年也還有 NASCAR 的 Verizon 200 等賽事,除了籃球運動外賽車也是該地盛行的賽事。
  • 球衣側面五顆星星代表了賽場上的五位球員。
  • 球褲側面的明星賽 Logo 週圍包覆了圓形圖案象徵位於印第安納波里斯市中心的士兵和水手紀念碑 (Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Monument),該紀念碑周邊為一圓環設計,圓形圖案也剛好呼應了印第安納的別名 “Circle City”。
  • 球褲兩側各有六顆星星,相加後代表球隊中的十二位明星球員。
  • 球衣下襬處印有第 73 屆明星賽的字樣。
  • 褲頭的 “ASG” logo 設計發想自最古老的籃球起源 – 由桶狀的籃子和皮球所組成的運動。

2024 NBA 全明星賽球衣發布

Nike 自 2017-18 賽季接手 NBA 球衣後,不論是明星賽制或是球衣都經過了多年的革新和嘗試,期間的明星賽球衣遭遇了眾多批評,今年重新回到了球迷最孰悉的明星賽樣貌,不知是否可以力挽狂瀾讓明星賽重新成為大家年初最期待的時刻。

Easy Homemade "Pop Tarts"

These would be perfect for Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is this Sunday in case you needed a reminder.  So many families love to take mom out for brunch on Mother’s Day.  Given the COVID-19 situation, many of us will still be staying at home this weekend, including my family.  Just about every year I ask my husband and kids for a special breakfast of a bagel and coffee on Mother’s Day.  This year they are not going out for bagels, so I have been brainstorming ideas of other things they can make.  I made this recipe, Homemade “Pop Tarts”.  a couple years ago and they are so easy and delicious.  My kids loved helping me make them and loved eating them even more.  If you can’t take mom out for brunch this year, why not whip her up a batch of these?

Homemade “Pop Tarts”
recipe from Tasty

Ingredients for 4 tarts

Tarts:

1 box puff pastry
jam of choice
1 egg
1 tablespoon milk

Icing:

2 cups powdered sugar
¼ cup low fat milk
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
food coloring, of choice

Cut puff pastry along fold lines and then in half, making 6 rectangular pieces.  Coat edges of one section of pastry with egg wash (egg and milk whisked). Place desired amount of filling in the center and spread, leaving room on the edges (I put a couple tablespoons).  Then place a second piece of puff pastry on top.  Push the edges of the two pastry pieces together with your fingers and then press with a fork to seal.  Bake on wax paper at 190°C (375°F) for 20-30 minutes or until golden brown and puffy.

For icing, mix all ingredients together. Add additional milk or sugar to achieve desired consistency. Apply to slightly cooked pastries

Note:  These got really puffy and we loved them.  If you don’t want them to puff as much then poke the puff pastry with a fork several times before filling.  You can also flavor the icing with extracts or zest for a nice flavor enhancer.

As Duke heads to the Joel for a big ACC showdown

Duke’s three-game road trip takes them about an hour down the road to Wake Forest for what will be one of the toughest games of the season. As the Duke Basketball Roundup crew explains, Wake is a good team on the road but a truly great team at home, raining 3-pointers down on opponents. The Demon Deacons are undefeated in Winston-Salem this season and they are in desperate need of an attention-getting win… and Duke is just the opportunity they want.

The DBR Podcast breaks it all down as Duke tries to stay atop the ACC standings and remain in line for a very high seed in the NCAA tournament. After the break, the podcast guys also reveal a shocking statistic about Duke’s Mark Mitchell. His poor shooting reputation from early in the season is really starting to fade.

AJ Hammons

AJ Hammons has always been one of the most talented C’s in the country and he’s finally coming into his own as a senior at Purdue. His per-game numbers have jumped significantly:

Junior: 11.9 points, 6.8 rebounds, 2.8 blocks on 54% shooting

Senior: 14.7 points, 8.2 rebounds, 2.7 blocks on 59.2% shooting
It’s a little misleading to look at his per-minute statistics because part of the reason why he plays only 24 minutes a game is that he’s such an enormous human being and he’s not in great shape so he can’t play all that much more. At the same time, part of the reason that he’s a part-time player is that he’s being backed up by another NBA prospect at C in Isaac Haas. What these per-40 minute numbers do show you is just how dominant he has been when he is on the floor:
Hammons per-40 minutes: 24.4 points, 13.7 rebounds, 1.7 assists (on 3.4 turnovers), 0.5 steals and 4.4 blocks a game 
This is a guy who has a PER of 31.2. He’s a major problem for any team that faces Purdue and there isn’t a C in the country who can match up with him 1-on-1. At 7’0 260 with a 7’3 wingspan, Hammons is a Leviathan sized human being who towers over the vast majority of NCAA C’s and would be one of the biggest players at his position as soon as he gets into the NBA. What makes him such an interesting prospect, though, is how skilled and mobile he is for a guy with his size.
Hammons is a dominant post scorer
He can score over either shoulder and he has phenomenal touch around the rim. You can see that in the fact that he shoots 73.4% from the free-throw line – he’s the farthest thing from an unskilled brute and he’s going to be a problem in the post at any level. He knows how to use his size to create position in the post and he knows what to do with the ball when he gets it down low. Watch how calmly he deals with the dig down and how he kicks the ball out and scores on the repost:
His size, length and touch means that he’s capable of disregarding help  and scoring in traffic:
What’s nice about Hammons is that he’s a big guy whose not afraid to use his size. With more and more teams playing smaller players at the C position, a super-sized C like Hammons is the perfect counter. I don’t care how good a post defender Draymond Green is – he’s going to have difficulty keeping Hammons off the block and he’s going to get worn out getting into wrestling matches with such a mammoth human being. Hammons is a big who knows how to play big.
Hammons is a shot-blocking machine
Hammons is as gifted a shot-blocker as has come out of the NCAA game in recent memory. He can routinely block shots with either hand and he turns the paint into a no-fly zone. He can do all your basic rim protection blocks:
He just envelops smaller guys in the post. It’s basically impossible for smaller guys to power through him and there aren’t going to be many guys even at the next level who can score over the top of him.
He’s fast and agile enough to chase down blocks from behind and pin them on the backboard. It takes a lot of athleticism to make a play like this and not may 7’0 260+ pound guys can do it.
Watch how violently he blocks the shot. The real impressive part is the timing it requires to make such an emphatic rejection with fouling the offensive player:
You can forget about challenging him at the rim. Deyonta Davis is a 6’9+ jumping jack who could end up going in the lottery at some point. Hammons rotated over and told him no way is he going to dunk on him:
Hammons still has a lot of room for growth in his game
Purdue runs a very traditional offense based around entering the ball into the post to Hammons, Haas and Caleb Swanigan (a very talented 6’9 260 freshman 4/5 who has a chance to play in the NBA as well). They almost always play two post men at the same time and there’s very little room for any of their big men to roll to the rim. Despite his immense size, Hammons is agile enough to catch and finish on the move and he could be a real roll threat when playing in space next to a high-level playmaking guard, which Purdue does not have.
He’s a really good athlete for a man of his size. He doesn’t finish this lob but the way he runs the floor and plays above the rim is really impressive. While he definitely needs to lose a little weight and become more sculpted, it’s easy to dream on him if he can become a little more streamlined.
He’s not a great passer by any means, but he has gotten more used to reading the defense and finding the open man, if for no other reason than the amount of double teams he has received in his four seasons at Purdue. He’s so tall that it’s really easy for him to see over the defense:
In this sequence, he finds Swanigan when he cuts to the rim off the double team. This is some good big-to-big passing and it’s encouraging that Hammons can A) read the play and B) make the pass even if Swanigan doesn’t end up catching the ball.
While Purdue mostly has their big men playing back in the pick-and-roll and protecting the rim, Hammons is agile enough to at least slide his feet on the perimeter when asked to do so. Here he is staying in front of Denzel Valentine:

He didn’t showcase this part of his game against Michigan State, but Hammons has shown the ability to step out and knock down perimeter jumpers as well this season. He’s 4-8 from 3 and he’s a pretty consistent shooter from 20+ feet. There aren’t any real holes in his game and he can do just about everything that a C needs to do pretty well.

Hammons age isn’t as big a concern as it would be for a smaller player
The biggest knock on Hammons is his age. He’s a fourth-year senior whose already 23 and he will turn 24 before he enters the NBA. To put that in perspective, he’s a few months older than four-year NBA veteran Jonas Valanciunas, which is pretty mind-boggling. So while Hammons has been spending the last 4 years playing against smaller players, Valanciunas has been testing himself and growing against the biggest and most talented C’s in the world. 
That’s a concern but it’s not that big a concern. Here’s why. The issue with most older players at the NCAA level is that they are dominating smaller and less physically developed players, an advantage that will go away once they get to the next level. The difference with Hammons is that he’s going to be one of the biggest players at the next level too. He’s not going to walk into the NBA and be physically intimidated. He can go toe-to-toe even with guys as big as Andre Drummond and Brook Lopez. He’s just about as big as those guys are so it’s not a huge deal.
It’s the same reason why Gorgui Dieng and Mason Plumlee (both of whom were 24-year old rookies) have been able to outperform their draft position. When you are super big and super skilled, it doesn’t really matter how old you are because there are so few guys with your physical abilities at any level of the game. I don’t think Hammons is going to be a star but I think he can be like Dieng and Plumlee and be a 10+ year NBA veteran who can start on a good team in the right situation, which would represent a huge value where he’s currently projected (No. 36 in the most recent DraftExpress mock).
Hammons is the best traditional C in this year’s draft. My only real question is how much value a traditional 5 whose most effective around the rim really has in the modern NBA. Will Hammons be able to survive on the perimeter in the pace-and-space NBA or will teams be better off playing smaller and more agile C’s like Damian Jones and Stephen Zimmerman? Either way, I think he would represent a great part of a C platoon with a smaller and more skilled small-ball 5 and he will have a long and productive career at the next level. This guy can really play and it would be pretty outrageous if some team can pick him up for a 2nd round pick. The fans of the team that drafts him aren’t going to be able to believe how big, how skilled and how agile he is.

Easy Roasted Potatoes

Quick and simple to prepare, Easy Roasted Potatoes make the best side dish.

Easy Roasted Potatoes featured image

Can you ever have enough recipes for potatoes? I don’t think so. But can you have a favorite? I do think so! And mine is this Easy Roasted Potatoes recipe. There’s just something about the mix of textures–the golden crunchy exterior and the pillowy soft interior–that makes me swoon. Hot out of the oven with a sprinkle of fresh parsley and extra thyme, these crispy roasted spuds might become your favorite, too–yes, maybe even surpassing French fries on the top of your potato list!

There’s something magical about combining garlic with potatoes and when the two roast together, those smashed cloves release a mellow pungency that, combined with earthy taste of the thyme, creates a powerhouse of flavor. This makes these potatoes a great partner for any main dish you pair them with. But you don’t have to use them as a side: they also make great snacks dipped in The Best Queso Ever or even just a spicy mayo.

Baby potatoes are harvested before they’re fully developed, so they have a thinner skin that crisps up beautifully. There are different kinds of baby potatoes–reds, Yukons, fingerlings (those these aren’t really babies; it’s just that they’re little so they look like babies!)–and they all work in this recipe. Personally, I like a mix of baby reds and baby Yukons, not just for the taste but also for the colors–we eat with our eyes!!

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds baby potatoes halved if large
  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 5 garlic cloves smashed with the skin on
  • A few sprigs of fresh thyme or rosemary as an alternative
  • Optional: finely chopped fresh parsley or additional thyme for garnish
Easy Roasted Potatoes ingredients

How to Make Roasted Potatoes

Step 1: Preheat Oven: Start by setting your oven to 400°F. If your oven has a convection setting, adjust to 375°F. This will ensure even cooking and that perfect golden exterior.

Step 2: Prepare Garlic: For the garlic, lay your knife flat on top of a clove and give it a good whack with the heel of your hand. This will crack it open, allowing the flavors to infuse into the oil without burning.

Easy Roasted Potatoes steps

Step 3: Season Potatoes: On a baking sheet, gather the potatoes in the center. Drizzle them with the olive oil, and then sprinkle with kosher salt and black pepper. Give them a good toss to coat evenly. Now, scatter the smashed garlic and fresh thyme sprigs among the potatoes.

Easy Roasted Potatoes steps

Step 4: Roast to Perfection: Slide the tray into the preheated oven and let the potatoes roast for 30 minutes. After the first half-hour, give them a stir to ensure they’re browning evenly. Continue roasting for another 25 to 35 minutes. They should be beautifully golden and crisp when done. If any potatoes stick, gently loosen them with a spatula.

Step 5: Serve Hot: If you’ve chosen to use parsley or additional thyme, now’s the time to sprinkle it over the hot potatoes. Serve them straight from the oven to enjoy their maximum crispness.

FAQs & Tips

How to Make Ahead and Store?

Leftover Easy Roasted Potatoes can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. You can reheat them in a skillet on the stovetop.

You can also freeze these potatoes in an airtight container for up to 6 months, and they don’t have to be thawed before reheating on the stove (or in the microwave, though this process might remove some of the outer crispiness)

If you want to make Easy Roasted Potatoes ahead of time, prepare them through Step 3 and then roast them when you’re ready. They can remain on the countertop for an hour or so before baking; if you need more lead time, pop them in the refrigerator for up to 2 days and roast them when you’re ready.

Can you roast the baby potatoes whole?

You can, if they’re uniformly small. But you should cut the bigger ones in half. Just make sure all of your potatoes are the same size for even roasting.

Don’t peel these babies!

The skins are very thin and add a crunchiness to the dish when roasted. No need to peel them, no matter what kind of baby potatoes you use.

Everyone in the pool!

One of the keys to perfect Roasted Potatoes is that each piece is completely and evenly coated with the olive oil, so don’t rush through the mixing process. Same with the seasoning: make sure each piece gets it salt and pepper.

What’s the best way to smash garlic?

Our way, by laying a knife (a small French chef’s knife is best) on top of the garlic clove and smashing it down with the palm of your hand.

Serving Suggestions

There are so many ways to serve Roasted Potatoes that I hardly know where to begin–or where to end! They are a natural with meats like Hamburger Steak and Gravy (and really delicious in that gravy) or beside Garlic Butter Baked Chicken or any kind of pan fried or roasted fish. But these potatoes are also the perfect mate to egg dishes, such as Mini Broccoli Quiche or even just plain old Sunny Side up Eggs. But don’t stop there! Toss them straight out of the oven in a mustard vinaigrette for a version of French Potato Salad.

Remember that old Simon and Garfunkel song, “Scarborough Fair” where they sang about “parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme?” Well, there’s a reason for those four herbs to be together! Our recipe calls for thyme, or rosemary as an alternative, and some parsley at the end, but if you like, why not use them all? The combo of these herbs bring a freshness and herbaceous flavor to this dish that really takes it over the top.

Roasted Potatoes can be a sort of blank canvas, meaning you can add lots of things you like to make the recipe your own. I love Greek food, so I often add some oregano during the roasting process and a generous squeeze of lemon as soon as they come out of the oven. You can also spice them up with chile powder and a bit of cayenne pepper (or more than a bit if you’re a daredevil!) or even flavor them with Indian spices like curry and cardamom and ginger. You do you!!
