This was on the underside of a beet leaf. It's either an ancient Chinese mystical symbol :breadthink: or... what?

Help me out, kith kitchen! What the heck is this on my beet leaf?

All finished: embroidery piece based on the three of swords card with marigolds (for heartbreak) and forget-me-nots (for memory). Kind of a nostalgia theme. #embroidery #tarot

Today I saw the same super weird mushroom in my workplace that shows up at the same tree base every year, #inaturalist tells me it's called Cenoporus squamosus:

My favorite rose is in bloom: Rosa chinensis 'Viridiflora' Also called "The Green Rose". It's a mutant that lost its ability to properly make a flower. On dissection, it's an infinitely recursive set of leaf-like sepals. It cannot reproduce on its own. It's been hand propagated through cuttings over several centuries. It is one unique specimen carried through time solely by people that find it fascinating. I believe it was first documented in Western Culture in the 1700s.

If you're not familiar with micaceous cookware, this may look a little concerning to you. But such pots are made to be used over open flame.

This is my mother's kitchen. She makes stew -- often green chili stew -- in this vessel, now and again.

Got your pumpkins in the ground? I started mine a bit early this year since my partner insists on hitting pumpkin patches anyway.

I’m a hobby baker from Boston, MA.

My dream is to eat a chocolate chip cookie at every bakery I visit and document them. I’m not trying to find the “best” cookie, they’re all good cookies. I’m trying to describe all of the many variations of chocolate chip cookies that there can be.

Thanks to my kids swapping labels im not 100% sure, but i think this is Nanticoke from the Experimental Network. The flowers are cute.

According to the Larousse Gastronomique, the point where two balls of dough rise to meet in the oven while baking is called the "kissing crust". 😘

Whole wheat rolls flavored with toasted caraway, baked today.

This is from 2012, but Western Jack O' Lantern mushrooms grow like this every winter around here. I could have taken a virtually identical just a few months ago.

These are so-called because, in pitch blackness with dark-adjusted eyes, one can see the gills glow softly.

They are not edible.

Why is it that when I peel eggs to marinate they always turn out disastrously but when I peel eggs to make egg salad they're perfect
