Coronavirus forces anti-vaxxers to rethink their dangerous beliefs

Conspiracy theories, unproven claims, fake news, and junk science have all proliferated during the coronavirus pandemic, leading many to attack coronavirus vaccine development when in fact that might be the only thing that eventually saves us from the virus. There's evidence, however, that the nature of the current global COVID-19 crisis is causing many anti-vaxxers to re-evaluate their dangerous beliefs. Visit BGR's homepage for more stories. The novel coronavirus pandemic may be having a surprising effect on the wildly misguided anti-vaccination movement that's based on a dangerous cocktail of junk science, outlandish conspiracy theories, and outright lies: Some of the...

Pork Dumpling Recipe

This recipe is my boyfriend’s mom’s recipe and I don’t think you’ll find a better recipe out there. If this is your first time making dumplings then I recommend starting a bit earlier on this recipe, because it will take more time.

Ingredients: Dumpling wrapper 2 cups of all purpose flour 1/2 cup of warm water Filling 1 lb of ground pork 6 celery sticks minced green onion 1 tsp minced ginger 3 tsp of...

Spicy cold sesame noodles

One of the most delicious things I ate in China last year were these cold sesame noodles I got at the Muslim market in Xi’an, Shaanxi. They were spicy, creamy, and nutty, with just a hint of sweetness and a refreshing crunch from the cucumbers and bean sprouts. So imagine my delight when I found this cold sesame noodle recipe from NY Times Cooking. I adapted it slightly to make these. Namely, I added water and extra vinegar to thin out the sauce and make it tangier, I cut down the sugar, and I added chili flakes for an extra...

Grilled Cod Cheeks with Szechwan Peppercorn Marinade

This recipe for Grilled Cod Cheeks with Szechwan Peppercorn Marinade is something I developed after visiting Newfoundland and Labrador last summer. Though my friends in Newfoundland will think it’s blasphemy, I used west coast Ling Cod Cheeks as fresh Atlantic cod cheeks were not available to me at that time. I’ve also used halibut cheeks when they are in season and they’re delicious too. For folks living in the land-locked Prairies or west coast, I highly recommend Skipper Otto as a sustainable source of fish. Here in Calgary, you can actually get Fogo Island Fish Hand Line Cod from a...
