•           9" pie plate

•           Stand or hand-mixer

•           Wooden spoon

•           Food processor or rolling pin

Brown Butter Shortbread Cookie Pie Crust

•           10 ounces Mightylicious Brown Butter Shortbread Cookies 

•           7 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

•           ¼ cup granulated sugar

Pumpkin Pie Filling

1.         11 ounces (308 g) canned pure pumpkin puree 

2.         3 eggs at room temperature

3.         10 fluid ounces evaporated milk or heavy whipping cream 

4.         3 tablespoons (42 g) unsalted butter (melted and cooled)

5.         ½ cup (100 g) packed light brown sugar

6.         ½ cup (100 g) granulated sugar

7.         ½ teaspoon kosher salt

8.         2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice 

9.         2 tablespoons (18 g) gluten free flour blend



1.         Preheat oven to 350°. 

2.         Add cookies and sugar to a food processor. Pulse food processor until cookies are crushed into a sandy texture. (You can also crush the cookies by hand by placing them in a zip lock back and crushing them with a rolling pin.) 

3.         In a large mixing bowl combine the cookie crumb mixture and melted butter.  Stir with a large spoon until incorporated.

4.         Add the cookie mixture to 9” pie plate. Use the back of your spoon to push cookies into the pan, creating an even and packed layer on the bottom and the sides of the plate.

5.         Bake for 8 minutes at 350° and allow to cool. 


1.         Preheat oven to 375°. 

2.         In a large bowl, combine the pumpkin puree, eggs, evaporated milk (or cream), and melted butter. Whisk ingredients vigorously until smooth and silky

3.         To the same bowl, add the brown sugar, granulated sugar, salt, pumpkin pie spice and flour, whisking until just combined after each addition.

4.         Pour the prepared filling into the prepared pie crust, and smooth into an even layer.

5.         Place the pie in the oven and bake for 15 minutes at 375°F.

6.         Reduce the oven heat to 350°F and bake for an additional 25 minutes. (When done, the edges will be puffed and set, and the center will jiggle slightly. Each oven is different so continue to bake if needed.)

7.         When done, remove from the oven and allow to cool at room temperature. 

8.         Pumpkin pie is a custard, so we recommend chilling the pie in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours to allow the custard to set. 

9.         To serve, remove the pie from refrigerator and for at least 30 minutes to reach room temperature. Add whipped cream and enjoy! 

The Mightylicious line features 7 varieties, including 4 vegan options: Vegan Chocolate Chip, Grandma Arline’s Oatmeal Coconut, and now new Double Dutch Chocolate Chip and Oatmeal Raisin varieties have been added to the vegan line up.

Brown Butter Chocolate Chip, Brown Butter Shortbread, and Salted Peanut Butter are dairy. (7.4 oz bag, MSRP: $7.99) All are certified gluten-free, Kof-K Kosher and non-GMO.

"Columbo" Writer Takes Us Back To A Future In Which Prisoners Are Instantly Aged The Number Of Years Of Their Sentence In "TimeLock 2: The Kyoto Conspiracy," New Novel Debuting Today


"A deftly crafted dystopian style science fiction suspense thriller of a novel, "TimeLock" by the team of Howard and Peter Berk is a compulsive page turner of a read from cover to cover and unreservedly recommended . . ."​  --Midwest Book Review (TimeLock)

TimeLock stole twenty years from Morgan Eberly’s life. A terrifying new version of the radical technology might just end it. 

The presidential election of 2024 has our nation divided, but the election of 2032 may prove far more consequential when the new Commander in Chief decides to abandon morality and international law to approve the development of a new genetic weapon for use on the battlefield in "TimeLock 2: The Kyoto Conspiracy," a novel out today co-authored by "Columbo" and "Mission: Impossible" writer Howard Berk.

Available on Amazon, numerous other sites and in retail book stores, "TimeLock 2" is the second in a series of action and sci-fi novels set a dozen or so years in the future. In the original "TimeLock" (now a finalist for a Cygnus Sci-Fi Book Award), 23 year-old Morgan Eberly is wrongly convicted of murder and becomes among the first to be processed through TimeLock, a genetic acceleration process in which prisoners are instantly aged the number of years of their sentence. After managing to escape halfway through his 40 year-processing, Morgan must cope with suddenly being middle-aged and on the run from the authorities, all while trying to learn the truth behind the deadly TimeLock program with the help of FBI agent Janine Price.

Set two years after the first novel, "TimeLock 2: The Kyoto Conspiracy" finds Morgan and Janine rushing to Japan to save the lives of their closest friends, Dr. Louis Garrett and Kiyoko Garrett, both of whom have been kidnapped on orders from President Myra Winters in order to force the noted geneticist to develop a weaponized version of TimeLock that will give the U.S. the best possible advantage against enemy combatants.

Joint Statement from the United States and the United Kingdom on Combatting Child Sexual Abuse and Exploitation

Joint Statement from the United States and the United Kingdom on Combatting Child Sexual Abuse and Exploitation.

Joint Statement from the United States and the United Kingdom on Combatting Child Sexual Abuse and Exploitation

Yesterday, U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro N. Mayorkas hosted U.K. Home Secretary Suella Braverman at the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) in Alexandria, VA to further the significant cooperation that both countries already have undertaken in the fight against child exploitation and abuse. This meeting built on previous high-level engagements across Cabinet agencies to strengthen this transnational commitment, including a statement in 2022 signed by Secretary Mayorkas, together with Attorney General Garland and Five Country Ministerial partners (Australia, the United Kingdom, New Zealand, Canada, and the United States), to commemorate the second anniversary of the Voluntary Principles to Combat Online Child Sexual Exploitation and Abuse and call on tech companies to do more to fight this growing threat. 


The leaders reaffirmed their commitment to work with like-minded allies and use our combined expertise to ensure perpetrators of child sexual abuse and exploitation cannot operate across continents. Our countries recognize that online child sexual abuse is a crime that will continue to transcend borders as technology evolves, giving criminal actors new resources for their modus operandi. Emerging technologies such as generative AI provide perpetrators with the capability to produce an unlimited number of pictures and videos depicting child sexual abuse at the click of a button and freely share this across all corners of the web, presenting law enforcement with new challenges identifying victims in need of safeguarding. As global leaders in tackling child sexual exploitation and abuse, the United States and United Kingdom pledged to collaborate further to drive innovation and invest in solutions to mitigate the risks of Generative AI. 


Finally, the leaders commended the role of organizations that operate internationally, such as the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC), to keep children safe worldwide. The United States and the United Kingdom have, and will continue to, exercise all levers to prevent child sexual exploitation and abuse while bringing offenders to justice. Leaders called on countries, non-profits, businesses, and individuals to do their part to counter online child sexual exploitation and abuse.

USCIS Aumenta el Periodo de Validez de los Documentos de Autorización de Empleo para Ciertas Categorías

USCIS Aumenta el Periodo de Validez de los Documentos de Autorización de Empleo para Ciertas Categorías

Hemos actualizado las guías en el Manual de Políticas para aumentar a cinco años el periodo de validez de los Documentos de Autorización de Empleo (EAD) iniciales y de renovación para ciertos no ciudadanos que están autorizados a trabajar en función de su estatus o circunstancia, incluidos aquellos admitidos como refugiados, con permisos de permanencia temporal como refugiados, que se les concedió asilo, así como los que recibieron de suspensión de remoción.

También hemos aumentado a cinco años el periodo máximo de validez de los EAD iniciales y de renovación para ciertos no ciudadanos que deben solicitar autorización de empleo, incluidos los solicitantes de asilo o suspensión de remoción, ajuste de estatus bajo INA 245, y suspensión de deportación o cancelación de remoción.

La guía actualizada también explica las categorías de no ciudadanos que están autorizados a trabajar automáticamente (también conocidos como autorizados para trabajar en función de su estatus o circunstancia) y proporciona información adicional sobre quién puede presentar un Formulario I-94, Registro de Entrada/Salida, a un empleador como un documento aceptable que muestra la autorización de empleo bajo la Lista C del Formulario I-9, Verificación de Elegibilidad de Empleo. El Formulario I-94 debe ir acompañado de documentación de identidad para propósitos de la autorización de empleo. Por último, esta guía aclara que ciertos afganos y ucranianos que tienen permisos de permanencia temporal están autorizados a trabajar en función de su permiso de permanencia temporal.

Aumentar el periodo máximo de validez de los EAD a cinco años tiene el propósito de reducir significativamente el número de Formularios I-765, Solicitud de Autorización de Empleo, que recibiremos para la renovación de los EAD en los próximos años, lo que contribuirá a nuestros esfuerzos por reducir los plazos de procesamiento y los retrasos asociados. Sin embargo, el hecho de que el no ciudadano mantenga la autorización de empleo sigue dependiendo de su estatus subyacente, las circunstancias y la categoría de presentación del EAD. Por ejemplo, si una persona recibió un EAD bajo la categoría (c)(9) a base de una solicitud pendiente de ajuste de estatus por el período máximo de validez de cinco años, y la solicitud de ajuste es entonces denegada, su autorización de empleo asociada puede ser terminada antes de la fecha de caducidad que aparece en su EAD).
