Plus: Steve Kornacki Loves America, Hates Vegetables
Hello Substackees! After the V-Day post that included a recipe - for chocolate-chocolate cookies that were so good I considered reviving my eating disorder - I received several “More recipes!” requests, as well as this sweet suggestion from reader Grace:
Am I the only one who would pay for a premium subscription w/ bonus recipes every month?
I’m not sure how to make that up-charge, but I CAN promise to give paid subscribers a recipe with each post. Something to consider! I hereby tease you with the next recipe, an almond cake I just baked and which is making the apartment smell amazing.
Just dropped: A new episode of Smoke ‘Em If You Got ‘Em, my podcast with Sarah Hepola, this time with guest Steve Kornacki, MSNBC statistician and one of the sweetest, smartest, goofiest people you will ever hear from. From the episode notes:
The Internet knows him as “Chartthrob” and “Map Daddy,” but once upon a time, Sarah knew him as “Snackwells,” the boy-genius politics editor at Salon and sweetheart of a co-worker who bought her a daily Diet Dr Pepper and picked stray vegetables out of everything he ate. The one and only Steve Kornacki joins the pod to talk about his stratospheric popularity as elections analyst on MSNBC (“I don’t fully understand what happened”), the Super Bowl and sports betting, his #1 Spotify listen of 2022 (Bobby Vee, anyone?), his famous Gap khakis, and his fantastic new podcast, “The Revolution,” tracking the rise and fall of Newt Gingrich, whose Nineties’ tenure as Speaker of the House had an outsized influence on American politics.
Also up: Super Bowl entertainment love and trash-talk, Isaiah Pacheco (and Benjamin Bratt) crushing, a few Smoke ‘Em weekend-treat announcements, and Kornacki’s #1 Spotify tune for 2022. Come visit with us! xx
