Moscow (eTruePolitics) – By decree of Russian President Vladimir Putin, a 5th edition of the revered “Dictionary of the Russian Language” will be printed with the noun ‘trumpski (“praise and/or flattery given to a narcissistic idiot to gain favor, access or the ability to easily manipulate) included for the first time, eTruePolitics has learned.



A silly little baker's trick I recently learned!

I have been baking bread for most of my adult life.

It is a joy to make, to bake (oh the aroma), and to partake!

It is a pain to clean up the floury mess on utensils, bowl, etc.

I cannot believe I never ran into this little "baker's secret" unitl recently.

While perusing a bread making site, I ran into this tip:

Clean up with cold water!


My dear mother taught me to clean everything with hot water. Not so much in this case!

I have to tell you, the time this has saved me the past few months makes me laugh, every time I do it now.

Was making a Pullman loaf today, and cleanup was once again so easy, I though that I would share this tidbit.

I don't know what the reason is, maybe hot water gets the gluten super-sticky or something.

Cold water just washes off flour dust like magic, and makes gooey remains wash of easily.

I hope that someone enjoys this time saving fact.

Happy baking!

Another very simple new favorite to share. - CHINESE SESAME BREAD WITH SCALLIONS

I seriously needed a distraction from the political hurricane that is upon us.



• 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
• 1 tsp sugar
• 1 tsp vegetable oil (plus additional for oiling pan)
• 1 tsp salt
• 1 cup lukewarm water
• 1 tsp instant yeast
• 1 cup chopped scallions
• 4 tbsp white sesame seeds


1. In a large bowl, add flour, sugar, oil, salt, water, yeast. Using the dough hook attachment of your stand mixer,
combine ingredients until dough comes together and then knead on low speed for 2-3 minutes. Dough will be
quite sticky. You can also do this by hand, which is how my mom did it.
2. Lightly grease another large bowl. Gather dough and place into greased bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and let
dough rest in a warm place until it doubles in size, about 1 hour.
3. Lightly flour a large pastry board or .at surface. Roll dough out. Spread scallions across surface. Then, roll
dough back up, with the scallions folded on the inside (see photos). Form the roll into a spiral. Carefully use the
rolling pin on the spiral, rolling and flattening until it becomes a large round disc. (An alternative method: My
mother's method was to grease a large plate and roll dough out with scallions directly onto the plate. This method
works but you won't have as many layers.)
4. Sprinkle both sides with sesame seeds, so that the exterior has a sesame crust. I used about 2 tbsp per side.
Let dough rest for about 20 minutes.
5. Using an oversized pot or pan, add oil and preheat. Once oil is hot, slide your bread into the pot/pan. Cook each
side for about 7 minutes on medium high heat until both top and bottom develop a brown crust and the inside is
fully cooked. Slice and serve. Bread is best enjoyed warm.

This delicious recipe brought to you by Kirbie's Cravings



I personally upped the flour to 3 cups, and doubled the sugar and oil. It is a very sticky dough.

I you enjoy it as I do, you might also substitute toasted sesame oil, in which case I would not double the vegetable oil.
I always tweak recipes a little bit!

It's called "cooking"!

One of my favorite new recipe discoveries! - Olive and Chicken Curry Crepes

Olive and Chicken Curry Crepes

Recipe By: LEAH DRISCOLL - ALL RIGHTS RESERVED © 2017 Allrecipes.com

"This is in my top five favorite meals of all time. This is the meal I would serve if a French chef was coming to dinner. A very flavorful main dish that your taste buds will be amazed at!"

Prep 30 m - Cook 15 m - Ready In 45 m

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/2 cups milk
3 eggs, beaten
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon salt


1/4 cup butter
1 1/4 cups diced celery
1 cup diced onion
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon curry powder
1 cup milk
2 cubes chicken bouillon
1/2 cup warm water
3/4 cup sliced black olives
2 1/2 cups cooked, diced chicken breast meat
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese


1. To Make Crepes: In a medium bowl combine the flour, milk, eggs, oil and salt and beat together for 1 minute, until you have a smooth, thin batter.
2. Heat a lightly greased medium skillet over medium heat, pouring in a thin layer of crepe batter that covers bottom of pan. Brown on one side only, repeating until all of the batter is used. Set crepes aside.
3. To Make Filling: Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat and saute celery and onion until just barely tender. Stir in flour, salt and curry, blending well. Dissolve bouillon in water, then pour milk and bouillon mixture into skillet, stirring until well mixed and thickened. Add olives and chicken and mix all together.
4. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
5. Spoon some of the filling mixture onto the center of each crepe, leaving enough room to fold edges burrito-style. Fold up crepes and place in a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking dish. Sprinkle with cheese.
6. Bake in preheated oven for about 12 minutes, or until cheese is melted.


I recommend not using bullion cubes, especially if you want to watch salt content. I used the really excellent Minor's Chicken soup base, which comes regular, low sodium, or no sodium. If you cannot find this locally, you can check http://www.soupbase.com/. A great little mom & pop shop very near my home. Lucky me!

Why is the Detroit Red Wings logo being used by these Nazis in Charlottesville?

I have seen it in some of the broadcast video, on a racist Cracker home made shield in this delightful gathering of geniuses.

Perhaps it's not an important issue, but I hardly think the Red Wings would approve of the use of their property in such hateful and racist exhibitions.

It is hurting my brain....

Is there some sort of significance?

I know that gangs have appropriated some sports logos in the past, but this is just weird.

That damned Pence puppy, he is such a wiener.

It makes me want to puke every time I see him casting his adoring gaze at the Dumpster.

He looks like a neurotic puppy begging to be petted.

It really is sickening, on any level, and for any reason.

And he is such a stinking, lying hypocritical so called "Christian", who does not seem to remember the 9th commandment.

Now, I cannot remember just which character, but he actually looks to me like a character right out of a Ren & Stimpy cartoon.

I wish that he was such a fictional character, so I could change the channel, or turn off the TV altogether.

So, what became of this alleged "important anouncement" the Donut said he was going to make in WV?

Did I miss something, or was it another classic all bluster no-show ?

Don't tell me that he lied!!

Is Melania Trump Getting Federally-Funded Side Peen? - STFU Funny!

Oh my!!

Maybe false info, but still funny as hell!

Awesomely Luvvie — June 2, 2017

Lemme tell you something. I haven’t started the new season of House of Cards yet because I honestly feel like we’re living in it. Double dose of it might be TEW MUCH. This Trump administration is like Primetime Fuckshit. On the bad part, everything is crumbling and the world is burning. On the good side, we got more tea than we can ever drink. We’re drowning in tea.

Last night, someone else blessed us with more. A saint woman by the name of Monica Byrne (@monicabyrne13) took to Twitter to drop info she gathered for us all, and challenged journalists to go dig up more on it. It’s about Melania Trump. And listen. It was good! It starts HERE but here is the tweet that really took me OUT. The crux of the spillage, if you will.

In the immortal words of a truly great American.....

“It's easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled.”

― Mark Twain

Hell, *Rumps idiot base are so damned stupid, you could not even convince them of that concept!

"Heaven help the fool...."

What more can I say?
