Project: Crowdsourced Cookbook, Fall Edition

How do you celebrate the beauty of autumn through food? Send us your best recipe to create the Fall Edition of the GOOD Cookbook

Autumn has a lot going for it: the foliage, the weather, Halloween, the World Series, and, of course, the food. As we gear up for Thanksgiving and the December holidays, food becomes a national fixation, with cooks around the country scouring their kitchens for their favorite recipes and stocking up on goods they're likely to buy only once a year (when else do you eat cranberry sauce?).

GOOD wants to know which recipe you're most excited to make this fall. Do you stick to the basics, like pumpkin pie and Brussels sprouts, or do you blaze new trails by throwing together whatever looks best from the farmers' market? Do you take advantage of the fresh produce to go the vegan route or does the chilly weather make you want to wrap everything in bacon? How does your family or culture celebrate autumn through food? We want to hear it all.

In our latest project, we're asking the GOOD community to send us your best original recipes using autumnal ingredients. We'll publish the recipes and accompanying photos in a slideshow and in a downloadable PDF. If all goes as well as we think it will, we plan to do the whole thing again next season. In a year's time, we'll have crowdsourced a four-season cookbook. Our goal is to make Michael Pollan's eyes well up with pride.


It's fall. What are you eating?


We want to discover and compile our community's favorite recipes using fall ingredients. Steal Grandma's secrets or come up with your own. Whatever foods you're excited about eating and cooking this fall, we want to know about them and learn how to make them, too. Oh, and take a picture of (or graphically depict) your dish as well.


Send an e-mail to projects[at]goodinc[dot]com with your submission. Submissions must include the following: 1) name of dish 2) a short recipe (try to keep it to 6 steps or less) and 3) an image of the dish. We’ll take submissions now through November 21. Then we'll publish a Picture Show with a selection of the best submissions and create a downloadable PDF. The Editor's Choice for most inventive recipe will receive a GOOD T-shirt and subscription to GOOD Magazine.

Tonight's Democratic debate is a must-watch for followers of the 2020 election. And it's a nice distraction from the impeachment inquiry currently enveloping all of the political oxygen in America right now.

For most people, the main draw will be newly anointed frontrunner Pete Buttigieg, who has surprisingly surged to first place in Iowa and suddenly competing in New Hampshire. Will the other Democrats attack him? How will Elizabeth Warren react now that she's no longer sitting alone atop the primary field? After all, part of Buttigieg's rise has been his criticisms of Warren and her refusal to get into budgetary specifics over how she'd pay for her healthcare plan.

The good news is that Joe Biden apparently counts time travel amongst his other resume-building experience.

This election cycle, six women threw their hat in the ring for president, but is their gender holding them back? Would Americans feel comfortable with a woman leading the free world? Based on the last election, the answer is a swift no. And a new study backs this up. The study found that only 49% of American men would feel very comfortable with a woman serving as the head of the government. By comparison, 59% of women said they would feel comfortable with a woman in charge.

The Reykjavik Index for Leadership, which measures attitude towards women leaders, evaluated the attitudes of those living in the G7 countries as well as Brazil, China, India, and Russia. 22,000 adults in those 11 countries were surveyed on their attitudes about female leadership in 22 different sectors, including government, fashion, technology, media, banking and finance, education, and childcare.

Only two countries, Canada and the U.K., had a majority of respondents say they would be more comfortable with a female head of state. Germany (which currently has a female Chancellor), Japan, and Russia were the countries least comfortable with a female head of state.

If you are totally ready to move on from Donald Trump, you're not alone. According to a report last April from the Wason Center National Survey of 2020 Voters, "President Trump will be the least popular president to run for reelection in the history of polling."

Yes, you read that right, "history of polling."

After three years on the sidelines, Colin Kapernick will be working out for multiple NFL teams on Saturday, November 16 at the Atlanta Falcons facility.

The former 49er quarterback who inflamed the culture wars by peacefully protesting against social injustice during the national anthem made the announcement on Twitter Tuesday.

Kaepernick is scheduled for a 15-minute on-field workout and an interview that will be recorded and sent to all 32 teams. The Miami Dolphins, Dallas Cowboys, and Detroit Lions are expected to have representatives in attendance.

"We like our quarterback situation right now," Miami head coach, Brian Flores said. "We're going to do our due diligence."

NFL Insider Steve Wyche believes that the workout is the NFL's response to multiple teams inquiring about the 32-year-old quarterback. A league-wide workout would help to mitigate any potential political backlash that any one team may face for making an overture to the controversial figure.

Kapernick is an unrestricted free agent (UFA) so any team could have reached out to him. But it's believed that the interested teams are considering him for next season.

Earlier this year, Kaepernick and Carolina Panthers safety Eric Reid reached a financial settlement with the league in a joint collusion complaint. The players alleged that the league conspired to keep them out after they began kneeling during the national anthem in 2016.

Before the 2019 season, Kaepernick posted a video of himself working out on twitter to show he was in great physical condition and ready to play.

Kaepnick took the 49ers to the Super Bowl in 2012 and the NFC Championship game in 2013.

He has the 23rd-highest career passer rating in NFL history, the second-best interception rate, and the ninth-most rushing yards per game of any quarterback ever. In 2016, his career to a sharp dive and he won only of 11 games as a starter.
