What Kind of Cousin Are You?

6th cousin, 3x removed? ... or whatever? Here's how to figure it out:
  1. Identify common ancestor
  2. Start counting generations from common ancestor until either one runs out of generations
    • 1 generation: Brother/sister
    • 2 generations: 1st cousin
    • 3 generations: 2nd cousin
    • 4 generations: 3rd cousin
    • ...
  3. If both of you are the same number of generations from the common ancestor, you're done--and zero times removed
  4. If one of you still has more generations to count, start counting those generations:
    • 1 generation: once removed
    • 2 generations: twice removed
    • 3 generations: thrice (3 times) removed
    • 4 generations: 4 times removed
    • ...
  5. You're done

Chef Lance Whipple on Creating Award-Winning Cake at Home

When baking a cake, the first and most important aspect of its success is the ingredients.

That is what Chef Lance Whipple says to Sonoran Living on ABC-15 in Phoenix, Arizona.

If you've always wanted to make an award-winning cake, be sure to check out the the video and article of the interview. (The occasion of the interview at KNVX-TV is the upcoming 35th Annual Scottsdale Culinary Festival that starts Tuesday, April 9, and continues for six days.)

Click here to read and watch the full report at the abc15.com web site. (Chocolate lovers are sure to like his Midnight Chocolate Cake recipe.)

Lance is Executive Pastry Chef at Four Seasons. He will be a judge at the "Take the Cake" competition. (Is that the same as the Culinary Festival, I wonder?)
