But! I did put a bit of espresso powder in the streusel here. I loooove the flavor that it adds. Especially with the orange. I have to tell you how much more I loved the orange flavor here when mixed with the streusel, as opposed to just plain orange cake. And I also have to tell you how I scraped the glaze that dripped off the cake and onto the board... off with a spatula. And put it on my own piece of cake. You're probably really reassessing your feelings for me at the moment. Embarrassingly enough, I still have onnnnne more recipe that uses blood orange to share with you this year. Because I’m a psycho and can’t stop. But this is the best! I swear. Until the next best comes along. aka, next week. When we eat all the chocolate things. After finishing all the cake things. Blood Orange Coffee Cake Yield: makes 1 (10 cup) bundt cake, serves 6 to 8 Total Time: 2 hours Ingredients: streusel 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar 1/2 cup all-purpose flour 2 teaspoons cinnamon 1 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder 1 teaspoon instant espresso powder 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/4 cup cold unsalted butter, cut into pieces cake 3 cups all-purpose flour 2 teaspoons baking powder 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 cup unsalted butter, softened to room temperature 1 1/2 cups sugar 2 tablespoons freshly grated orange zest 3 large eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla extract 1 cups plain greek yogurt (full-fat or 2%) blood orange glaze ¼ cup freshly squeezed blood orange juice 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 3/4 cup powdered sugar Directions: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Clint Bowyer hasn't won a race since 2012, hasn't made the playoffs in three years and is coming off an embarrassingly bad season.

It remains as embarrassingly easy to park as ever, turns on a sixpence (or at least a 6m 95cm diameter sixpence in the case of the Smart Fortwo ED) and takes sharp, awkward backstreet corners in its short stumpy stride. It drives well, too. In Eco mode the car glides quietly around the city with serene confidence, soaking up all but the biggest of lumps and bumps with surprising composure. Your back and teeth wont thank you for driving directly at a speed bump at 30mph in either one of these vehicles, but as long as you’re careful, both Smart Fortwo ED and Forfour ED reward with a calm, unfussed commute. When you do finally manage to free yourself from the shackles of town traffic jams, disengaging Eco unleashes the (small furry) beast within. Although the Forfour is noticeably less eager to leap up the road, both cars are a hoot to drive along twisty country lanes.

Collectively, such belief systems contradict each other even though most claim to be the one true religion. Statistically, most would have to be fakes. It is more comforting to believe that we shall be reunited with loved ones in an afterlife than to accept that we shall never see them again. Such false beliefs are readily accepted even when they are propagated by convicted con men like Mormon leader Joseph Smith who used used embarrassingly faked texts. Gullibility may have been a valuable trait that helped people to fit in with the beliefs and practices of their in-groups throughout history. Unfortunately it makes for bad citizenship in a democracy where political leaders are supposed to follow the guidance of the electorate. That is why freedom of expression in general, and a skeptical press in particular, are so important and the invariant targets of authoritarian regimes.

. Oh, right, with this guy the question answers itself. He knows nothing about Yemen, like most geopolitical matters, and as someone who consistently dodged military service during the Vietnam War he strongly supported, he has no military experience. But Trump rolled the big raid out there anyway, like it was another one of his half-baked executive orders or provocative pronouncements. The result was a debacle, with a dead Navy SEAL, three more wounded, an expensive aircraft downed and dozens of civilians, including many children, killed when the elite operators embarrassingly had to call on heavy air attacks to make good their escape. We even had the spectacle of the government we are there to supposedly help, Yemen's rump state -- the rebels hold the capital now and much of the country, despite more than a year of Saudi and Gulf Arab attacks -- forbidding new US operations in Yemen.

[this post is in partnership with my favorites, DeLallo Foods ! I’m created some delicious recipes and videos that you'll see over the next few months. xo] Let me profess my love to you with cheesy pesto garlic bread. There is definitely enough to go around! Okay, so you want to know what I love about embarrassingly easy recipes like this? It can be a fancy snack… or a SIDE! Eddie is the king of side dishes. I wrote this about him years ago, but he loves multiple side dishes with dinner. And things that I dont even want or need a side with (i.e. pizza, spaghetti and meatballs, etc), he always wants a side. Shockingly enough, many times garlic bread works as a side dish for him which makes dinner time ridiculously easy. While I would never be able to make an entire loaf of bread like this for our dinner (well, I guess I totally could, but then we’d be forced to eat it all and hate ourselves in the morning, whomp whomp), I LOVE this idea as a garlic bread side dish for a dinner with friends or family.

Our consumer habits are absurd – as the rush to fly in iceberg lettuces from the United States amply illustrates Rain, frost and snow in Spain have resulted in a shortage of courgettes, broccoli and iceberg lettuce. Prices have surged, and supermarkets are now rationing the scarcest produce. The biggest danger, apparently, is that owners of independent sandwich shops will buy all the iceberg lettuce, leaving the middle classes of the UK with nothing to garnish their ostentatiously transparent chill drawers with, and nothing pleasingly green to place on the children’s plates (so that one can sigh meaningfully when it’s time to scrape it, and half a bottle of Pizza Express house dressing, into the indoors food waste caddy). The pain doesnt stop there. Oh, no: much more of this and the outdoors food waste recycling bin may start to become embarrassingly lacking in heft.

What it doesn't contain much of is poetry, or accounts of the writing of poetry. The reader knows that he is scribbling the stuff throughout, but Graves the autobiographer keeps such business off stage. Despite this, moments essential to Graves' poetry and poetic career can't help but attract attention, like his first encounter with Siegfried Sassoon, who in 1915 was serving as another young lieutenant in his regiment, the Royal Welch Fusiliers. Inasmuch as Graves' account of this conversation involves Sassoon criticizing some drafts of poetry Graves shows him as being too "realistic," and showing Graves some embarrassingly sentimental verses in return, the moment falls squarely into the category of "dishy." Indeed, Sassoon was so upset at gossipy elements of the memoir, which he attributed to a bid for sales, that he was able to have the first edition suppressed, and subsequent editions revised.

This is not a real estate deal. Except, inevitably, in the old soldier sense of the term, referring to a small plot of ground. Are we surprised that the first big special operations raid of the Trump presidency went decidedly south, big time? Emphasizing speed, precision, and overwhelming force, such missions are supposed to be the exact opposite of a fair fight. They should be a ruthless walkover. Operators should be come and gone before the echo of the shots -- if any -- fades. Trump's first raid was anything but that. Immediately running into unexpected heavy resistance , precision maneuvers swiftly devolved into a desperate brawl with automatic weapons, with heavy air support embarrassingly required to bail out the elite Navy SEAL team. One American was killed, three were wounded, a very expensive aircraft went down and was destroyed, and, oh yes, dozens of civilians were killed, including children.

" In choosing a candidate, we no longer educate ourselves by gathering pertinent information, we merely shop for what seems to fit our point of view. But, I wonder, as proficient shoppers shouldn't we be able to tell the difference between a good product and a bad one? How could Trump, who is the exemplar of all that is wrong (self-obsessed, rapacious, intolerant) with America and all that is misguided and shallow about our culture, have convinced the tens of millions who voted for him that he was a crusader for all that is right and good about this country and about being American? As Taibbi and the rest of the American public witnessed, Trump didn't trip up embarrassingly once or twice during the campaign and apologize publicly on bended knee as most pols have done before him. Instead, his response to any outcry raised against his constant provocations, lies and gaffs was to deliberately and defiantly make wrong seem right.

Experience, however, counseled caution: In the past, red shift changes have diminished such Democratic exit poll margins and even reversed apparent victories. We witnessed, for example, a 4 percent John Kerry lead over George Bush in Ohio flip at midnight in 2004 , and with it the presidential election. And now we began to see signs of such reversals, not in a single state as in 2004, but in a swath of states, the ones that everyone understood would be decisive in electing our next president. The polls in all the key states had closed and the work of screen-capturing and spreadsheeting the key exit polls was done. Now, the vote tallies rolled in and the picture began to emerge from the darkroom developing tank with ever increasing clarity: Clinton would win the popular vote, the only question being how embarrassingly large for Trump her ultimate margin would turn out to be.
