Bao/Disney/Pixar, Binging with Babish/YouTube

In case you somehow missed it, Pixar's Bao nabbed Best Animated Short Film at this year's Oscars. The film tells the story of a Chinese woman who lives out her motherhood dreams with a homemade dumpling who comes to life. The short is filled with images of a dumpling that looks equal parts adorable and delicious.

Leading up to the awards show, the film's Chinese-Canadian director Domee Shi released her mother's dumpling recipe and one YouTuber has shown us all how to make it.


The recipe includes complete directions for making both the tasty pork filling along with the somewhat intimidating dough.

Youtuber Binging with Babish decided to embark on making Domee Shi's mom's dumplings.

He captioned the cooking tutorial,

"Bao is a beautifully animated, thematically mature, subtle and nuanced portrait of the human condition - in other words, it's a Pixar production. To celebrate the Oscars this coming weekend, let's dive into the director's mom's own recipe, as we attempt to recreate a food so delicious, you'll want to raise it as your own until it tries to leave you and you eat it."

The video shows Babish struggling to make the Bao dumplings, repeatedly making mistakes and encouraging his viewers not to make the same errors.

First he makes the mistake of proving the dough without using that time to mix the filling.

Second he doesn't put oil on the papers he places the dumplings on for steaming. This causes his first batch of dumplings to stick and break when he attempts to pick them up.

Babish's humble tutorial and the delicious result have inspired people everywhere to make their own dumplings.







For others it simply reinforced their love for the Academy Award winning short.



Now I'm hungry.

If you can't manage to make your own bao, get the next best thing: this adorable Disney Pixar Bao t-shirt depicting the Nine Feelings of Emotion. If you can't eat some bao, be one!

Christmas is upon us. It's time to get those Christmas present lists together.

So... who has been naughty and who has been nice?

Who is getting diamonds and who is getting coal? Yuck, coal. Is that even a thing anymore? Who even started that idea?

There has to be some funnier or more "for the times" type of "you've been naughty" stocking stuffer.

I feel like the statement coal used to make is kind of last century at this point.

Apparently I'm not alone in this thinking.

I admit, I love my stuffed animals. They're the best.

Some of them have been with me for years and I have them proudly displayed in different spots around my apartment. And when I've packed them for a move, I've done so with all the tender loving care I can muster.

What is it about them that stirs up these feelings?

Believe it or not, it's quite possible to form emotional attachments to inanimate objects!

They say your 30's hits different, like one day you're young a hopeful and the next day you're just WAY too old for this.

What is the "this" you're suddenly too old for?

No idea. It's different for everyone, but make no mistake, it'll happen to you too.

Maybe it already has?

Do all mothers go to the say mom school or something? Because they seem to share the same advice or go on the same platitudes, don't they?

Here's an idea.

Maybe they're just older, have more experience, and are trying to keep us from being dumbasses in public. At least, that's what I think.

I'm definitely grateful for my mother's advice—it's saved me more than once—and it seems many out there are too. And they all seem to have heard the same things from their mothers, too.
