They say there is no bad pizza. That’s very generous for some of the less than satisfying vegan pizzas we tried before the dairy-free cheese revolution. Vegan pizza has improved dramatically over the years, and it’s also becoming much more mainstream. It’s not quite the tipping point for vegan burgers (national chains are slow to adopt vegan cheese), but many regional and independent pizzerias have permanently added vegan cheese and plant-based meats to their menus. If you don’t crave plant-based pizza now, you definitely will by the end of this article. Here’s where to find the best vegan pizza to deliver.

Best vegan cheese for pizza

The good vegan cheese can convince us to take a second slice. But the truth is, not all delivery options offer vegan cheese. So sometimes you still have to add your own, unless, of course, you want to enjoy pizza alla marinara, the Neapolitan pie that consists of a thin crust with a puffy base topped with tomato sauce, oil extra virgin olive oil, oregano and garlic.

Three varieties work well on pizza: vegan parmesan, creamy nut-based cheese, and really melty (not rubbery) cheese. The latter is the most difficult to master. There is a fine line between gooey, melty goodness and sticky, bland and greasy. Miyoko’s Creamery and NUMU both make dependable vegan mozzarellas that stand up to the heat. Specifically, Miyoko’s new Pourable Mozzarella works wonders for homemade pies, while NUMU can be found at a variety of pizza places in the greater New York area as well as Whole Foods pizza places nationwide. Many restaurants also offer Daiya, Parmela Creamery, or Follow Your Heart cheese to get that stretchy element.

Creamy, spreadable cheeses such as nut-based mozzarella and ricotta are also great vegan pizza toppings. With just a handful of ingredients and a high-speed mixer, you can easily make these nutty cheeses at home. We also love when a restaurant makes their own vegan cheese. It is usually a rich, indulgent nut-based variety generously covered in an artisanal crust.

Don’t forget the param. Whether store-bought or homemade, a finish of vegan parmesan adds an umami flavor to bring it all together. Make it in less than five minutes by mixing together cashews, nutritional yeast, and a pinch of salt, black pepper, and garlic powder until you get a sand-like texture. Sometimes all you need is a sprinkle of this cheese imp powder and you’re set – no other cheese required.

Where to find vegan pizza delivery

These days, you can find vegan pizza just about anywhere you can find non-vegan pizza. It is available at regional restaurant chains, independent restaurants, grocery store hot bars and the freezer aisle. Even when a restaurant doesn’t explicitly offer a veggie pie on the menu, you can usually order one keeping the meat and cheese and amplifying the veggies. Most pizza doughs are naturally vegan (with the exception of most Papa John’s doughs, which for some reason contain milk), making it easy to make your own when dining out. Here are some of our favorite delivery options:

Pizza Blaze

1 Pizza Blaze

Of the pizza chains that deliver, Blaze Pizza is one of the most vegan. At this LeBron James-backed restaurant, the original, homemade gluten-free, and high-rise crust options are all vegan. Then you can top it with dairy-free cheese, vegetable chorizo, and any veggies.

The 10 Deadliest Stretches of Road in New Jersey https://utahbbq.org/the-10-deadliest-stretches-of-road-in-new-jersey/ Wed, 16 Nov 2022 23:22:06 +0000 https://utahbbq.org/the-10-deadliest-stretches-of-road-in-new-jersey/

In three years, nearly 1,600 accidents on the roads of New Jersey have caused at least one death.

Using data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, MoneyGeek compiled a list of the Garden State’s deadliest stretches of highway from 2018 to 2020, ranked by their number of fatal crashes.

A few highways appear in the top 10 list more than once.

According to MoneyGeek, more than 40% of fatal crashes in New Jersey between 2018 and 2020 involved speeding or drunk driving. Distracted driving contributed to 20% of the state’s fatal crashes during that three-year period.

“These are accidents, they are not accidents,” said Tracy Noble, spokesperson for AAA Mid-Atlantic, reacting to the report. “We also have to keep in mind that when some of our roads were designed, they weren’t designed for the types of vehicles and speeds we have today.”

Below is MoneyGeek’s list of New Jersey’s 10 deadliest stretches of road. The green dots indicate the location of fatal accidents; some of the crashes occurred at the same locations/intersections.

Nearly 800 roads in New Jersey were considered for the study.

ten.

  • 3.4 km of road
  • 7 fatal accidents, killing 7

In response to New Jersey 101.5’s request for comment, the New Jersey Department of Transportation noted that an ongoing project aims to improve safety for all modes of transportation along this stretch.

Proposed improvements include reducing the carriageway from four lanes to two traffic lanes with a center left turn lane and cycle lanes.

9.

  • 4.1 mile drive
  • 7 fatal accidents, killing 8

8.

  • 4.9 mile drive
  • 7 fatal accidents, killing 8

seven.

  • 3.3 km of road
  • 8 fatal accidents, resulting in 8 deaths

  • 8 fatal accidents, resulting in 9 deaths
Study: NJ has the 5th best drivers in the country

5.

  • 2.9 mile drive
  • 9 fatal accidents, killing 10

The Department of Transportation said it has two projects to improve Route 21. One will resurface part of the highway and the other will include improved traffic lights and sidewalks.

4.

  • 4.1 mile drive
  • 10 fatal accidents, resulting in 10 deaths

3.

  • 4.2 km of road
  • 10 fatal accidents, killing 11

2.

  • 4.6 mile drive
  • 10 fatal accidents, killing 12

1.

  • 3.9 mile drive
  • 11 fatal accidents, 11 dead

State Department of Transportation spokesman Steve Schapiro said the DOT is committed to finding innovative solutions to improve safety for all road users.

“We regularly review crash data to look for areas where pedestrian safety improvements may be needed, and we work with our engineers and designers to incorporate these improvements into ongoing projects,” Schapiro added. “These safety features can include installing pedestrian signal heads and improving sidewalks and crosswalks.”

The Retired Investor: DST Economics / iBerkshires.com https://utahbbq.org/the-retired-investor-dst-economics-iberkshires-com/ Thu, 03 Nov 2022 21:20:00 +0000 https://utahbbq.org/the-retired-investor-dst-economics-iberkshires-com/

By Bill SchmickChronicler of the iBerkshires

On Sunday, November 6, 2022, Americans set their clocks back to standard time. Earlier this year, the US Senate unanimously approved a bill that would have made daylight saving time (DST) permanent starting November 20, 2023. What happened?

The U.S. House of Representatives did not act on the measure. To become law, the measure would have to be passed by the House and signed into law by the President. Fundamental disagreements over the wording of the Senate bill, called the Sunshine Protection Act, ultimately centered on the right time to make permanent – ​​daylight saving time or standard time.

Recent public opinion polls indicate that most Americans would like to see permanent DST. You might ask why and when did the current system develop, and what is the economic impact of changing it?

Benjamin Franklin came up with the idea in 1784, but it was Europe, particularly Germany, that implemented the change in 1916. In America, daylight saving time has had a checkered past, with beginning with President Wilson, who made it law in 1918. It was repealed seven months later, reinstated in 1942 by FDR, and formalized by Lyndon Johnson in 1966, who standardized the start and end dates of the summer time across the country.

Arizona, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, American Samoa, US Virgin Islands, and Northern Marianas do not recognize daylight saving time. Only 70 countries around the world observe it, but those that do are strict about it. For example, on Saturday October 30, 2022, clocks in most of Europe were set back one hour at the end of daylight saving time.

By passing the Sunshine Protection Act, U.S. Senate lawmakers justified permanent daylight saving time by arguing that it could boost consumer spending, while reducing energy consumption by adding an extra hour of daylight at the end of the working day.

Historically, not everyone in the United States liked the concept of daylight saving time. Farmers lobbied against the concept because it would give them one less hour of sunshine to send their crops to market. They also claimed that the cows don’t like it because milking is done on a schedule and daylight saving time disrupts that.

As for energy conservation, at one time the United States implemented year-round daylight saving time (from January 1974 to April 1975) to combat the energy crisis in the era. Once again in 2005, Congress extended DST by one month to reduce energy costs as well. Unfortunately, studies have shown that the fraction of savings on electricity and gas bills from daylight saving time is more than offset by higher energy consumption in other areas.

The United States Chamber of Commerce has long supported daylight saving time. The Chamber argues that consumer spending increases during daylight saving time. Retail sales are jumping due to more people shopping after work. Energy consumption also increases. Increased use of air conditioning and fans, as well as additional driving occur when consumers take advantage of the extra daylight to shop. This explains the minimal gains in energy savings overall.

Two of their members, golf and the barbecue industry, have made their case. Golfers profit from the extended hour of play to the tune of $200 million to $400 million a year, according to the Chamber of Commerce, while barbecue-related business profits increase by more than $150 million a month. Restaurants, hotels and businesses in tourist areas also favor daylight saving time as they say visitors stay later.

On the negative side, William F. Shugart II, an economist at Utah State University, says the clock change itself can cost the country $1.7 billion in lost opportunity costs. He argues that people could do something more productive. Additionally, the Air Transport Association, as of 2007, estimated that the airline industry suffered over $147 million in tight schedules worldwide due to the clock change.

Beyond the economy, which seems to have as many upsides as downsides, the social impacts are just as puzzling. Longer daylight promotes safety for children playing outdoors, joggers, and dog walkers, and increases visibility, which reduces car accidents.

Against the pros, there are arguments that moving the clocks forward provides less sunlight in the mornings when most kids go to school. Since most thefts are committed at night, additional daylight can reduce crime.

In any case, don’t expect Congress to pass legislation to make either time change permanent this year. Depending on the outcome of the midterm elections, something could change in 2023, but given the partisanship in Congress, I wouldn’t hold your breath.

Obituary: Per Guldbrandsgaard | AspenTimes.com https://utahbbq.org/obituary-per-guldbrandsgaard-aspentimes-com/ Sun, 23 Oct 2022 15:32:04 +0000 https://utahbbq.org/obituary-per-guldbrandsgaard-aspentimes-com/

June 20, 1938 – October 15, 2022

Per Guldbrandsgaard, one of the “Stein boys” who followed gold medal-winning Olympian Stein Eriksen from Norway to teach at his new US ski schools, died on October 15, 2022 in Aspen after 84 years of a busy life of skiing and traveling the world.

Born June 20, 1938 in Drammen, Norway, Per grew up as an avid skier in the mountain town of Geilo, one of two sons working on the family farm. Skiing was the means of transportation since his toddlers. He graduated from Stavern Military School in two years before flying out to circumnavigate the world on a work ship. Back in Geilo, he becomes a banker, only teaches skiing on weekends, before realizing something about himself.

“I am an outdoorsman. I said to myself, I have to get out of this bank, I can’t stay here anymore,” he recalls. “I love being outside and talking to people and helping them feel good about their skiing.”

Per taught full-time at Geilo from 1960 to 1965, including a summer interlude teaching at Portillo and La Parva, Chile. In 1965, Stein Eriksen returned to the glaciers of Norway to assess and hire many professional European instructors, and he recruited certified Norwegian Per to be on staff at his Sugarbush, VT ski school.
Per taught for two seasons at Sugarbush, where slippery conditions were similar to those in Europe.
In 1967, Stein was asked to start a ski school for Aspen Skiing Co.’s new gem, Snowmass-at-Aspen. So he picked a team to take him west. The instructors were delighted to discover the powder snow of the fledgling ski resort of Snowmass. Per worked as Stein’s assistant and supervisor before he left in 1969 to accept the opportunity to have his own school – in Snowcrest, Minnesota.

He spent the next 15 winters as ski school director at Snowcrest, a 300-foot vertical ski area that hosted some 1,000 guests from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily. There he served as a PSIA Alpine Ski Instructor Examiner, also establishing the district’s first certification process for cross-country ski instructors. He was the representative and advertising “face” for ski equipment, Gladiator sunglasses and ski sportswear.

He was often mistaken for Stein Eriksen for their similarities in facial features – and both had thick, wavy hair that was never encumbered by a ski hat, even on the coldest days. He was sometimes referred to as Stein’s “brother from Lille”.
Meanwhile, Stein had moved to Utah and was to be ski director when Deer Valley opened in 1980. Stein asked Per to run the ski school for him. “Their offer was missing a zero,” Per said dryly, “so I declined and stayed with Minnesota.”

The Snowcrest season ended on March 1, so Per returned to Snowmass each spring to continue teaching there for the last 6 weeks of his season. In 1995 he returned to Snowmass for good – bringing with him his “Norwegian New Year” tradition. At 4 p.m. Mountain Time every December 31, Per rang in the New Year just as the clock struck midnight in Norway, accompanied by other ski pros cheering “skål” at their favorite watering hole in the Snowmass Village upper mall.
He retired in 2014 after 55 years teaching skiing, 47 of them at Snowmass. He has shared his love of skiing with legions of ski guests, most of whom have become lifelong friends, incorporating him into their own families to introduce each new generation to the joys of winter sports.
When he finished each day of skiing, après-ski, he was always surrounded by colleagues and colleagues at places marked with plaques known as “Per’s Corner”, not only at Venga Venga but also at Mountain Dragon/Slow Groovin BBQ.
When he first came to Snowmass, he laid down his roots and his heart, explaining that “I’ve been in heaven ever since.” He was an essential part of the large Norwegian community in Aspen/Snowmass. For many years he returned to Norway every summer in the summer, but he also looked forward to his respite in mid-January on Waikiki Beach in Hawai’i. In recent interviews for the Aspen Business Journal and Skiing History magazine, he said, “I’ve had a great life doing exactly what I love to do.
He is survived by the two sons of his late brother Svein (who had also taught at Snowmass), both living in Norway. Per also leaves behind a multitude of friends, colleagues and ski guests, all of whom were very fond of him.

Republican candidates clash with business owners in Gary – Chicago Tribune https://utahbbq.org/republican-candidates-clash-with-business-owners-in-gary-chicago-tribune/ Thu, 20 Oct 2022 22:55:40 +0000 https://utahbbq.org/republican-candidates-clash-with-business-owners-in-gary-chicago-tribune/

Business owners at a roundtable hosted Thursday in Gary by the Republican National Committee said finding workers and dealing with inflation are the top issues they face today as they navigate the current economy.

About 50 people gathered at the Sole Café in Gary for the discussion featuring re-election contender Sen. Todd Young and First Congressional District candidate Jennifer-Ruth Green.

There were no other Republican candidates at the event; Lake County Republican Party Chairman Dan Dernulc, who is running himself to unseat Democratic State Rep. Michael Griffin, said he was unaware of it.

Young and Green was up against U.S. Representative Burgess Owens, R-Utah, a member of the Education and Workforce Committee, who also won re-election Nov. 8. Darquia Biffle, co-owner of Big Daddy’s BBQ and Sole Café in Gary, and Sean Jointer, owner of Righteous Enterprise Remodeling and Construction of Indianapolis, rounded out the panel.

Young faces a challenge from Hammond Mayor Tom McDermott, a Democrat and Independent James Scéniak, while Green challenges incumbent U.S. Representative Frank Mrvan, D-Highland.

Jointer said employees don’t feel as valuable when inflation is so high. Despite adjustments and wage increases, higher wages are not outpacing inflation and workers are not advancing, Jointer said. He said the pandemic had changed people’s attitudes towards work, and that access to materials and price volatility made it difficult to bid and complete work.

Biffle said finding people who want to work is a challenge. She said extra unemployment benefits and stimulus checks were keeping people out of work and causing her business to struggle. Big Daddy’s Bar-B-Que LLC, received a federal Paycheck Protection Program loan for $126,300 in the first batch that was distributed in April 2020, according to ProPublica’s database. The program was intended to provide small businesses with payroll funds during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Last year, it had to close its Schererville site for about six months after failing to find workers. The cost of food and inconsistent access to produce has also caused issues, and Biffle said she’s had to raise prices and change menu items and recipes because sometimes produce isn’t available.

Young said business owners across the state struggle with the same issues.

“Inflation is by far the No. 1 issue on the minds of Hoosiers in every region of the state,” Young said.

He described inflation as a form of taxation on people on fixed or low incomes and said runaway spending policies were to blame.

“Stop spending trillions we don’t have on things we don’t need,” Young said. He criticized direct payments made to individuals under the American Rescue Plan Act as contributing to inflation and a lack of working people. He called for deregulation of business in general and the energy market in particular to help reduce fuel prices.

“It’s a matter of changing the way we think,” Green said. Young people need to learn that they can advance their lives through matriculation, enlistment, or employment, not just a college degree. She said she would work to help voters manage their expectations of what can be accomplished by seeking to understand the tools available to her to find a reasonable solution to issues affecting voters.

Aresenio Wright of Hammond, CEO of Preferred One Ambulance, said he had hoped to have the opportunity to ask candidates questions, but was overall happy with what he had heard.

“There is never a problem with words. The problem is with the action,” Wright said. He hopes that if the elected Greens will be able to achieve change.

Sharon Mallory of Gary, owner of SDM Investments, said she came to the event because she was a longtime black Republican in northwest Indiana and wanted to hear what Green had to say.

“I’m thrilled Jennifer Ruth Green is being transparent and telling the truth,” Mallory said.

The ills affecting Hoosiers will not be resolved overnight, Mallory said. She is fed up with Lake County career politicians who have become complacent, and she agrees with Green.

“We need to rethink what we do,” Mallory said.

Dear Freshmen, Embrace Homesickness – The Daily Texan https://utahbbq.org/dear-freshmen-embrace-homesickness-the-daily-texan/ Tue, 18 Oct 2022 06:19:34 +0000 https://utahbbq.org/dear-freshmen-embrace-homesickness-the-daily-texan/

As my mother glazes her signature braised pork belly with a final sprinkle of rice wine, she brings the just-steaming dish to the dining table.

“Dinner is ready,” she said in Mandarin, asking us to come downstairs to eat. The aroma permeates through the cracks of the house and up to my bedroom.

I grew up in the traditions of a Chinese family. Weekend Chinese School, Lunar New Year, and my mother’s cooking were the defining moments of my childhood memories.

Whether it’s Mom’s Turkish Delights, Dad’s Vintage Humor, Pop’s American BBQ, or your family’s iconic celebrations, we all have defining characteristics and memories of what we used to call home. to arrive on the Forty Acres.

Now our home is defined by new traditions: the burnt orange, the Hook ’em hand signs and our mascot, Bevo.

College is a big adjustment. As the months pass, we often remember what we used to call home. As such, homesickness exists – even though it is an identity battle, it can be a catalyst for personal growth and a source of newfound independence.

My message to the freshman class: embrace homesickness.

Homesickness is a reminder of those you were closest to. You can have days when you absolutely thrive, days when you sleepless nights at Perry-Castañeda Library or days when you have trouble keeping up with class. There are sweet flower buds, moments that keep you grounded, and friends that become your new family. As you find your new family, the memories we create become the core of our college experience.

Homesickness is a reminder of growth. UT has an essence of beauty. Students come from all over the world – in-state, out-of-state, or international. The diversity of languages, traditions and student organizations allows students to find their place. Finding your passions and refining your interests is the key to personal growth, both academically and emotionally.

Homesickness is a reminder of tradition. The food that characterized your childhood, the songs you sang, the cultures you celebrated, don’t lose them. Learn the recipe passed down from your grandmother, celebrate your traditions with loved ones, keep your native tongue sharp and never forget the roots that define your identity.

Homesickness is a reminder of peace. Be free. It’s luck and the most ideal place to make mistakes, but remember to always bounce back. Get out of your dorms and breathe in the fresh air. Listen to the birds chirping as you lay beside the turtle pond. Learn to get out of your comfort zone. Keep yourself busy, but busy with intention.

Homesickness is a care reminder. There is a simple doctrine: apart from a person’s work, the most sacred thing he can give is his love. Somehow along the way, we tend to forget about it. Embrace whoever you have, your friends, teachers, roommates and those who stayed home. Self-care is important, even when you’re mired in work. Make sure you follow routines, eat well, and get enough sleep.

Homesickness is a reminder of home. Stay in touch with your family – text them, FaceTime, reconnect with your siblings and check on your grandparents. It reminds you of the core values ​​you hold, yesterday and today.

Your parents and guardians are proud of you.

I’m proud of you.

As we begin a new roller coaster of chapters, the discomfort is impermanent. College is an opportunity. With the chaos, don’t forget the house. And call your mom, she’ll appreciate it.

You are here for a reason. Stick to your defined goal. You are part of a loving new family here at UT – a home away from home.

Wan is an aerospace engineer and freshman Plan II student from Houston, Texas.
