Crosby, Penguins get even with 4-3 win over Rangers (Yahoo Sports)

Sidney Crosby scored twice and the Pittsburgh Penguins evened their first-round playoff series with the New York Rangers with a 4-3 win Saturday night. The Rangers won Game 1 by making Crosby virtually invisible and keeping Evgeni Malkin out of the danger zone. On Saturday, both of them and the Penguins as a whole showed more jump, possessing the puck and keeping New York off-balance. Forcing turnovers in the decisive second period, shutting down the Rangers’ power play and generally controlling the pace, the Penguins got even.

Dwight Howard Blocks Tyson Chandler’s Shot into Stands, Crowd Erupts

It took Dwight Howard just a few minutes to get the Toyota Center crowd on its feet in Game 1 of the Houston Rockets’ opening-round series against the Dallas Mavericks, thanks to a big play on the defensive end.

Just minutes into the game, Mavericks 7’1″ center Tyson Chandler attempted to drive to the basket on the 6’11” Howard. That resulted in Chandler’s shot getting swatted away with authority.

The Big Sur Bakery Cookbook ($0.99 Kindle), by Michelle Wojtowicz, Phillip Wojtowicz, Michael Gilson and Catherine Price [HarperCollins] – this is very likely to go back up in price tomorrow or the next day, at the latest.

Book Description

Here from the celebrated California restaurant Big Sur Bakery is a stunningly photographed cookbook showcasing seasonal ingredients, local vintners, fishermen, and farmers—and the food that makes the Big Sur Bakery unique.

Tucked behind a gas station off California’s legendary Highway 1, the Big Sur Bakery is easy to miss. But don’t be fooled by its unassuming location—stumbling across the Bakery, as countless visitors have done on their way up and down the Pacific Coast, will make you feel as if you’ve discovered a secret: a gem of a restaurant where the food, people, and atmosphere meld together in a perfect embodiment of the spirit of Big Sur.

The three restaurant owners, chef Philip Wojtowicz, baker Michelle Wojtowicz, and host Michael Gilson, escaped the Los Angeles food scene to create their version of the ideal restaurant, nestled in the heart of some of the most beautiful country in the world. This is simple, wood-fired American cooking at its best, executed in a way that lets the ingredients—seasonal and often locally produced—shine. Weekend brunches feature thick, nine-grain pancakes and savory breakfast pizza topped with crisp bacon, fresh herbs, and pasture-raised eggs. At night, Phil offers classics like Grilled Prime Rib Steak with Red Wine Sauce along with twists on traditional favorites like Venison Osso Buco or Rockfish Scampi. And every meal should end with one of Michelle’s great desserts, whether it’s a homemade Peppermint Ice Cream Sundae or Hazelnut Flan with Roasted Cherries.

But this is more than a cookbook; it’s a yearlong glimpse into what it’s really like to live in Big Sur, introducing the people and places that make the restaurant’s renowned food possible, including Wayne Hyland, hunter and forager, Jamie Collins, organic row cropper, and Gary Pisoni, the eccentric vintner who supplies some of the restaurant’s most beloved wine. With its outstanding photography, lively profiles, and dozens of must-make recipes, this book helps bring the experience of Big Sur home.
