Library of Congress posts Rosa Parks’ ‘Featherlite Pancakes’ recipe | Good news

A pancake recipe with ties to the Civil Rights Movement is making the rounds now that the Library of Congress has put it on the internet.

The recipe is generating so much interest because of the woman who wrote it down — Rosa Parks.

She’s known for refusing to give up her seat to a white man on a bus in Montgomery, Alabama, effectively mobilizing a larger protest for civil rights and freedoms back in 1955.

She is one of the founders of the Civil Rights Movement and this recipe gives us a look inside her personal life.

Historians say the pancake recipe helps humanize her.

It was part of a collection of 10,000 personal documents that were gifted to the Library of Congress nearly 10 years ago.

It was the only recipe in all the documents. Her “Featherlite Pancakes” recipe is unusual because it calls for peanut butter and about three times the amount of baking powder used in most pancakes.

It’s written on the back of a bank envelope from Detroit, in Rosa’s own handwriting.

A curator suggested to “The Sporkful Podcast” that the recipe was likely written on the envelope because after her arrest, both Rosa and


In Youngstown, a Downtown Tire Pyrolysis Plant Is Called a ‘Recipe for Disaster’

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio — Stacks of red bricks and piles of busted concrete lie on the ground next to what remains of a century old coal-to-steam plant in this city’s reinvented downtown. Sheet metal covers large holes in the roof. Rusted pipes extend into the air. Front-end loaders and backhoes stand at the ready to continue to demolish and dig away at a remnant of the region’s robust industrial history.

Tapping into 19th century technology, the plant long provided steam through a network of underground tunnels to heat downtown buildings.

A new owner, a businessman named David Ferro from the Columbus suburbs, and his company, SOBE Energy Solutions, have visions of restoring that service and doing a whole lot more—but this time, using as much as 88 tons of old tires a day as fuel. 

His plan would deploy another old but reimagined technology—pyrolysis, a centuries-old process for decomposing materials at high temperatures in an oxygen-free environment that’s been used for making tar from timber for wooden ships and coke from coal for steelmaking during the last century.

The SOBE proposal for loading shredded tires, which can contain as much as 24 percent synthetic polymers, a type of plastic, into a


‘Cooking with Friends’: Ainsley Earhardt shares

“Fox & Friends” co-host Ainsley Earhardt showed off her cooking skills on Tuesday, Nov. 21, making a grilled flounder and her “mama’s grits” alongside sliced ​​tomatoes.

“Today, we’re sharing one of my favorite recipes,” said Earhardt.

The recipe appears in “Cooking with Friends: Eat, Drink & Be Merry,” a new cookbook by “Fox & Friends First” co-host Carley Shimkus.

The book features recipes enjoyed by Fox News personalities when they’re at home with their families.


Earhardt said the dish is “something we make in South Carolina.”

“I don’t know if you’re a fish person, but if you’re going to make a fish dish, this is very easy and it’s fun,” she said.

A key step, says Earhardt, is to cook the flounder on a piece of foil so it doesn’t stick to the grill.

She seasons her flounder with lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper before grilling it for about 10
