    I had a World History teacher like that who made history fun --- she'd come to school dressed as a French peasant, for example, and put on a phony French accent, and pretend we were flying to France... she'd go through "we need to get our airline tickets...." and talk about what airport we'd arrive in... what foods we'd eat (and sometimes bring samples)... yeah, I remember a LOT of "world history" from her class.

    I can see a between the lines cry for help like a liberal can hear a racist dog whistle.

I might have learned a little bit of additional material in college, but I broke the curve. Easiest technical class I took in college.

    As I've told numerous people I learned more science in my first week of Chemistry in my freshmen year of college than I learned throughout all of 9th through 12th grade.

    Hope that clarifies.

    I see the recipe needs to be updated to include the salted caramel chips we put in sometimes!

    The cocoa can be partially replaced with black cocoa, I think he uses 1/4 c of that? He needs to clarify!

    Thats what makes the cookies dark chocolate.

    The product may suffer during shipping. Especially if the carrier smells the product through the packaging.

    Just clarified with The Lad, and he does replace half the regular cacao with the black cocoa. It has something to do with the heavily alkalized properties of the cocoa during its processing, because it’s very acidic.

    When we started using it I did some research. You can add a 50/50 ratio of black cocoa and regular cocoa in a recipe using baking soda, but you can’t use it straight in such a recipe.
    Not exactly the sort of research he had in mind. I'm pretty sure he means something more "hands on"

    Multiple series of double-blind tests done in triplicate just for the preliminary groundwork
