We see baby diamondback terrapins hatching at the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary and talk to the volunteers who help them get a head start.
“Many people are praying and their prayers go unanswered. Imagine if you decided to step in your role as a god and resolved to answer their prayers. How many prayers would be answered from now on? But no, you also keep your face hidden like other careless gods and keep your ears closed to their clamor.”
― Bangambiki Habyarimana, The Great Pearl of Wisdom
Barbecue sauces have a uniquely Southern and Western U.S. history. Most experts agree that the practice of adding sauce and spices to meat and fish began early in our history, with Native Americans teaching the art to early European settlers. The natives probably developed the process as part of an attempt to keep meats and fish from spoiling quickly. Salt played a major role in those early barbecue sauces, and salt is a well-known preservative in the meat curing process.
Because the nations first European arrivals lived on the East Coast of America, that part of the country is credited with spawning the original barbecue sauce styles. First and foremost, there are the various Carolina barbecue sauces. The most widely known are East Carolina, Piedmont, and South Carolina varieties. East Carolina barbecue sauce consists of vinegar, salt, black pepper, and crushed or ground cayenne peppers. Its a very simple sauce that penetrates the meat nicely for a deep flavor. Piedmont barbecue sauce only varies from East Carolina in that it often includes molasses or Worcestershire sauce and thus clings to the meat more. South Carolina sauce is entirely different, using a mustard base instead, producing a much tangier and sharp flavor.
Then there is Memphis or Southern style barbecue sauce. This popular variety is typically more complicated (flavor-wise) and is built around mustard, tomato, and vinegar. Fans often point to the boldness of these flavor combinations as the hallmark of Memphis barbecue sauce. A saying often heard among hungry connoisseurs is no two bites alike.
Continuing our trek westward, we come to the acknowledged center of the barbecue universe Kansas City! Kansas City barbecue sauce is distinguished by its noticeably thicker consistency and emphasis on sweetness. Thats because this style of sauce is built upon thick tomato sauce, chunks of vegetables, and lots of sugar. Many popular commercial brands are based on this Kansas City recipe. It’s most popular among amateur backyard grillers because of the availability in grocery stores (Kraft, Heinz, K.C.s Masterpiece, etc.). And also because the thick sauce can be applied only once and enough will remain in place to please the happy recipients of the grilled meat.
Finally, there are the Texas barbecue sauce styles. Now, Texas is one big state, and there are several regional varieties within it. The most common include thick and spicy sauces that are essentially spicier variations on the Kansas City sauces. These are found mostly in the north and east sections of the state (Dallas). In western Texas, thinner sauces that feature hot peppers can be found. These sauces are often added only at the very end of the barbecuing or grilling process. And then, in southern Texas, the barbecue sauce of choice features an emphasis on Mexican spices and, of course, jalapeño peppers! Make sure to have a cold beverage handy to put out the fire!

For either baking novices or seasoned pros, a dump cake is a no-brainer. To prepare one, you simply dump the ingredients into a bowl and beat them, then pour the batter into a pan and bake it. Although a dump cake is easy to make, it's just as good as a more fancy cake. Perhaps that's why dump cakes, including pound cakes, have been popular for hundreds of years.
The secret to the cake is in properly beating the ingredients, so follow these tips. Let the butter soften and take the eggs out of the fridge to warm a bit. For an airy batter, beat the softened butter and sugar really well until the creamed mixture looks pale and wispy. Beat in the eggs and vanilla until all the streaks are gone. Any curdling you might see will disappear as you beat. Turn off the mixer occasionally and scrape the batter at the sides of the bowl into the path of the beaters so everything gets thoroughly mixed.
Switch to low speed when you add the dry ingredients to keep the flour mixture from flying into the air. Since overbeating the flour can toughen a cake, beat only until the batter has no streaks. Stir in the chips by hand so the mixer does not break them.
Be sure the cake is done before you take it out of the oven. You can use either a cake tester, a thin metal wire with a knob on top, or a wooden pick. Gently push the tester into the middle of the cake and pull it out. If you see liquid batter on the tester, keep baking. If the tester comes out clean, remove the cake from the oven and let it cool. A silky-textured pound cake is rich and moist all by itself, so you don't need to frost it. Just slice and
Double Chocolate Pound Cake
1 loaf cake or 8 servings
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup unsweetened baking
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
With butter, lightly grease bottom and sides of 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 x 2 1/2 or 9 x 5 x 3-inch loaf pan. Dust with flour. Shake out excess flour. Set aside. With a sifter or mesh strainer, sift 1 1/4 cups flour together with the cocoa and salt into bowl or onto sheet of waxed paper. Set aside.
In large mixer bowl at medium speed, beat together butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 to 5 minutes. Beat in eggs and vanilla until thoroughly blended, at least several minutes. At low speed, gradually beat in reserved flour mixture, 1/2 cup at a time, beating just until blended and no streaks remain. Stir in chips. Spread batter evenly in prepared pan.
Bake in preheated 325 degree F oven until cake begins to pull away from sides of pan and cake tester inserted near center comes out clean, about 60 to 70 minutes for 9-inch pan or 75 to 85 minutes for 8 1/2-inch pan. (If tester shows dark brown, you've hit a melted chocolate chip. Test again in another spot. To prevent overbaking, remove cake from oven as soon as no light brown batter shows on tester.) Cool on wire rack 10 minutes. With narrow spatula or knife, loosen cake from pan. Gently shake onto wire rack. Cool completely. To retain moisture, store cooled cake in plastic wrap. Serve plain or topped with fruit, ice cream or whipped cream, if desired.
Quit thinking as far as apprehension. We're all liable of intuition in the negative rather than the agreed. We're occupied not needing things. That is fine and ordinary, yet there is no activity connected with not needing something. You can't choose to accomplish something on the grounds that you don't need another. That is not how it functions. That will simply keep you on the love seat, doing nothing.
Trepidation is unsafe for two reasons: An) It keeps you unmotivated. A negative objective isn't something you can go to activity on. Be that as it may, besides, B) It's depleting and debilitating. Living in trepidation sucks. It keeps you in a condition of interminable stress rather than activity. When you're depleted and depleted and stressed, you are not going to be persuaded. There's no two courses around it.
Characterize your objective and your arrangement to accomplish it. Since we make them think in the positive, you gotta recognize what you're getting positive about. Rather than, "I would prefer not to be destitute, poor, and carry on with my life in a condition of wretched neediness," you're considering, "I need to be monetarily secure." Awesome. Presently - what's your arrangement to accomplish that?
Indeed, for that particular case, you'd make some sort of wage arrangement. It would include making a financial plan, conceivably doing a reversal to class, or growing your business. You have solid strides toward your objective. In any case, for whatever you're confronting - be it weight reduction, doing great in school, or completing a fantasy - you have to make sense of what it is you need and exactly how you anticipate doing that. In the event that you truly need it, it won't be all that difficult to make sense of.
Keep it to only one. On the off chance that you have a huge amount of things on your schedule, some of the time it gets to be overwhelming and you wind up putting the rundown away and "handling it later." But in the event that you make them thing on that rundown of yours, that is it. That is feasible. It's possible and you can concentrate on it - spreading yourself slender over twelve won't do you or your objectives equity.
You can't center yourself in case you're not centered around a particular objective. Separate it into little pieces however much as could be expected. In the event that you will probably shave 5 years off your appearance, assault it a tiny bit at a time. Begin off with another workout routine and get that down. At that point, move to another cosmetics regimen. At that point, handle your closet. On the off chance that you don't parse it out, your cerebrum will raise it's arms (if brains had arms) up in surrender and you'll be left with no thought where to go or what to do.
1. There's Always Someone Working Harder Than You Are.
Regardless of the possibility that you think you've done everything you would, you're be able to off-base. Everybody has a fantasy, objective and inspiration. It just depends how far you're willing to go to get what you need.
Achievement originates from being one of a kind and emerging among the group. On the off chance that you settle for sufficient, that is all you will be and somebody will surpass you.
2. No one's Perfect.
We are all human. Understanding that it's alright to commit an error is just part of the fight to that extreme objective. Taking in and advancing originates from accomplishing something incorrectly and being advised how to do it right.
Riding a bicycle without preparing wheels isn't a simple accomplishment, yet once we took in the cadence and how to be in control, it turned into an aptitude we wouldn't overlook. On the off chance that we quit after the main setback or the first occasion when we hear individuals scrutinize how we handle ourselves, we are relinquishing what could have been.
3. Achievement Isn't Rewarding If It's Easy.
Achieving that extreme objective ought to be an extraordinary minute. In the event that it wasn't the hardest thing of our lives, then we didn't accomplish it. Realizing that we did all that we could for ourselves as well as other people to procure that objective ought to be more remunerating than the genuine honor itself.
Behind each effective individual, there is a story and a long-battled venture for him or her to get to where he or she is today.
4. Demonstrate Others Wrong.
When somebody says you can't accomplish something, demonstrate that you can. Perused more, compose more, know more and work harder than the individual by you.
On the off chance that he or she runs two miles, run three. In the event that he or she burns through four hours chipping away at a task, burn through eight. Activities talk a considerable measure louder than words, so as opposed to whining and sulking about others view of us, make them gag on and spit up their words.
5. Rome Wasn't Built In A Day.
This is the most vital saying to recall when surrendering turns into a honest to goodness thought. No one can make a domain in a day; no business can turn into a multi-billion-dollar wander in one day, and no thought merits tossing in the junk on the off chance that every one of the stops haven't been hauled out yet.
There is a considerable measure to say in regards to revamping drafts in our lives, and now and again they should be reconsidered and altered various times before the completed duplicate can be distributed and celebrated.
