To make the most exceptional and moist cake, mix the ingredients (after measuring them out: 342g flour, 295g milk, 228g butter, 14g baking powder) and then feel free to start feeling overwhelmed All ingredients are mixed in a ritualistic manner (am I the only one who thinks Brown would make an exceptional serial killer?) and[...]

Good Eats: Reloaded Season 2 Episode 5 Review: An Egg-cellent Return

Good Eats was one of those shows I got into when I was a child because of my mother. She loved Alton Brown's nontraditional tactics, comedic anecdotes, and bizarre humor.
