Does anyone have experience using almond milk in recipes?

I spent the weekend at my son's house and made pancakes for the grandkids Sunday morning, as I do every time I spend the night. They were awful! They didn't rise well, they didn't brown well and they were heavy.

I used my old standard, basic recipe which makes a light, fluffy pancake. I checked with my daughter in law and the flour in the cannister was plain old all purpose flour. The baking powder was from a brand new can, the eggs were fresh, but the only milk in the fridge was almond milk, which I've never used before.

Could the almond milk have made such a difference in recipe?

There's a new Frontline on PBS tonight: "Exodus: The Journey Continues".

The intimate stories of refugees and migrants, caught in Europe’s tightened borders. Amid the ongoing migration crisis, the film — a sequel to the award-winning 2016 documentary, Exodus — follows personal journeys over two years, as countries become less welcoming to those seeking refuge.

This seems very appropriate.

I've always heard that if you don't like the weather in Arkansas,

stick around for a few minutes.

Less than a week ago we had overnight temps in the single digits. Right now it's 72 degrees outside, thunder is rumbling and we are under a tornado watch.

@pbump
It’s hard to imagine a more angry Trump than a Trump who was planning to go to Mar-a-Lago for a big celebration of himself that would raise a ton of money but who instead is stuck at the White House dealing with political intricacies.

Trump Sows Chaos With New Demands As Government Shutdown Looms

President Trump torched Republican leaders’ plans to avoid a government shutdown on Thursday morning with a new demand that funding for the Children’s Health Insurance Program not be included in any government funding bill, increasing the chances of a government shutdown in less than 48 hours.

GOP leaders had planned to include a six-year extension of funding for the CHIP program as a way to pressure moderate Democrats to vote for a one-month extension of government funding as they scramble for enough votes to avoid a shutdown.
<snip>
“I’m not sure what the President means,” Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn (R-TX) said on Fox News Thursday morning when asked about the President’s new stance — before making the case that CHIP funds should remain in the bill in spite of Trump’s new position.

“What this would do though is it would reauthorize the CHIP program for, I believe, five years. So it’s not just a 30-day extension. But Paul Ryan and Kevin McCarthy have to figure a way to cobble together the 218 votes. Apparently, they feel like adding this will help them get to that 218 votes,” he said.

It seems that all he does is blunder blindly into negotiations without knowing what is going on. What a deal maker he's turned out to be.

FBI investigating whether Russian money went to NRA to help Trump

The FBI is investigating whether a top Russian banker with ties to the Kremlin illegally funneled money to the National Rifle Association to help Donald Trump win the presidency, two sources familiar with the matter have told McClatchy.

FBI counterintelligence investigators have focused on the activities of Alexander Torshin, the deputy governor of Russia’s central bank who is known for his close relationships with both Russian President Vladimir Putin and the NRA, the sources said.

It is illegal to use foreign money to influence federal elections.

It’s unclear how long the Torshin inquiry has been ongoing, but the news comes as Justice Department Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s sweeping investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 election, including whether the Kremlin colluded with Trump’s campaign, has been heating up.
