Alright, Fediverse, what are some good recipe websites that aren't... awful like most recipe websites?
SimplyRecipes.com was a favorite of mine for over a decade, but the ads are finally starting to metastasize now that Elise sold it to Fexy Media.
I feel like SmittenKitchen.com is all I have left for #recipes. Help?

Despite stalling all over Belfast for the past week, I'm really proud of myself for learning how to drive a manual transmission since we've moved here.
It's been super cool to feel that transition from complete lack of control to early mastery. Like, suddenly I have new intuition and muscle memory that didn't exist at all a few months ago! In a real, tangible domain! It's been a long time since I've learned a genuinely new physical skill.
...Northern Ireland is really strange this time of year.
Dad Hacks: Baby monitor too blindingly bright at night? Create a filter with brake light repair tape! #parenting

I like computers.
