There are several substitutes for eggs that can be used in cooking and baking. Some popular options include:

  1. Applesauce: Unsweetened applesauce can be used as a replacement for eggs in a 1:1 ratio.
  2. Yogurt: Use plain, unsweetened yogurt in a 1:1 ratio as a replacement for eggs.
  3. Silken Tofu: Blend silken tofu in a food processor until smooth and use in a 1:1 ratio as a replacement for eggs.
  4. Mashed Banana: Use mashed banana in a 1:1 ratio as a replacement for eggs.
  5. Aquafaba: The liquid from a can of chickpeas can be whipped and used as a replacement for eggs in meringue or mousse recipes.
  6. Chia seeds or flax seeds: Mix 1 tablespoon of chia seeds or flax seeds with 3 tablespoons of water, let sit for a few minutes, and use as a replacement for one egg.
  7. Commercial egg replacer : There are also commercial egg replacer powder available in the market which can be used as a substitute for eggs.

It’s worth noting that egg substitutes may affect the texture and taste of the final product. Experimenting with different substitutes and adjusting the recipe accordingly may be necessary.

  • Applesauce and mashed banana can add sweetness to a recipe, so they are best used in recipes that already include sugar or in recipes that are intended to be sweet.
  • Yogurt can add a tangy flavor to a recipe, so it may not be suitable for all recipes.
  • Silken tofu can add a dense, creamy texture to a recipe and is a good option for recipes that call for eggs in a custard or cream-based filling.
  • Aquafaba can be used to make meringue, mousse, and even macarons, and it is a great options for vegan cooking.
  • Chia seeds or flax seeds can be used as a binder in recipes like pancakes, waffles, and muffins, but it may affect the texture and taste of the final product.
  • Commercial egg replacer, it’s a pre-made powder that can be used as a egg substitute in baking, it’s a good option for those who are allergic to eggs, or for those who want to avoid using eggs in their cooking and baking.

It’s important to note that egg substitutes may not work well in all recipes, and that using the right substitute for the recipe is essential for success. In some cases, adjusting the recipe or using a combination of egg substitutes may be necessary to achieve the desired texture and taste.

Osage Beach, Missouri, Seeks Funding for Critical Water and Sewer System Improvements

Osage Beach, Missouri, Seeks Funding for Critical Water and Sewer System Improvements

City officials propose rate increases to address infrastructure needs and financial sustainability

In the quaint city of Osage Beach, Missouri, nestled along the shores of the Lake of the Ozarks, residents and city officials are grappling with the need to fund critical improvements to its water and sewer systems. The city, known for its scenic beauty and recreational opportunities, has seen its water and sewer infrastructure age, with the sewer system being built in the 1980s and the water system in the early 2000s.

Recent public hearings and discussions among city officials have highlighted the urgent need for significant investments in the water and sewer systems to maintain safety, compliance, and overall operational efficiency. The city’s sewer system serves nearly 7,100 users, while the water system serves nearly 6,100 users. Over the past four years, the number of utility users has grown 6% in both systems, adding to the strain on the aging infrastructure.

Economic factors such as inflation, supply-chain issues, and the unprecedented increase in the costs of equipment, materials, and labor have contributed to an increase in system expenditures and use of financial reserves. The city’s water system produced nearly 380 million gallons of water for users in 2023, while the sewer system handled over 352 million gallons of waste.

To address these challenges, the city has proposed a 34% aggregate increase in water rates and an 85% aggregate increase in metered and non-metered sewer rates. The proposed changes are set to take effect on July 1, 2024, following approval by the Board of Aldermen. The increases are aimed at ensuring the city can operate, maintain, and improve the water and sewer systems, as well as replenish adequate reserves and generate sufficient revenues for overall system operation and maintenance.

City officials have acknowledged the potential financial impact on residents but argue that the rate increases are necessary to address the critical infrastructure needs and ensure the long-term sustainability of the water and sewer systems. Public hearings and workshops have been held to discuss the proposed rate changes and their impact on residents, with city officials emphasizing the importance of maintaining safe and reliable water and sewer services for the community.

Italian diver Enzo Maiorca saves pregnant Dolphin after the (soon to be father) Dolphin alerted Enzo that his female partner was stuck in a net.

Italian diver Enzo Maiorca saves pregnant Dolphin after the (soon to be father) Dolphin alerted Enzo that his female partner was stuck in a net.

Italian diver Enzo Maiorca while diving into Siracusa sea felt something patting him on the back. He turned around and saw a dolphin, which he understood did not want to play but express something. The dolphin dived and Enzo followed. At a depth of twelve metres trapped in a net there was another dolphin. After managing with his wife to release it, as the two dolphins emerged they emitted an almost human cry (this is how Maiorca described it). Dolphins can be held under water for up to ten minutes then drown. The trapped dolphin was a female who soon gave birth. The male circled them and, standing in front of Enzo, touched his cheek (like a kiss), a gesture of gratitude. Enzo finished his speech by saying: “Until man learns to respect and communicate with the animal world, he will never be able to know his true role on this Earth.”
