Clearing out some open tabs here...

I was hoping this blog post would help resolve the old "cupcakes are just muffins with frosting" debate. But it only documents the first step of scraping recipes and getting them organized. Plus it's a simplified case of a project by a friend of mine with a slightly different aim. I do like seeing these analytical approaches to cooking.

But on the other hand, there are occasions where people take quantitative thinking too far. A notion worth keeping in mind.

Totally unrelated, but here's a fun article about those ants in your kitchen. I feel like this covers a lot of territory.

Things I wonder about on occasion: what determines the timing of germination for desert/dryland wildflower seeds? Turns out there's a difference between how native wildflowers vs. non-native grasses manage the problem. Intriguing, with implications for longer-term plant dynamics in California - assuming that more extreme, long-term drought doesn't just kill off everything. Still - some kinds of seeds can be really resilient.
