A diverse collection of local residents and groups are getting a financial boost from the Lane County Cultural Coalition, which is distributing almost $30,000 in grants for projects that range from a powwow with Native American artists in the Oakridge School District to an arts and culture program for adults with developmental disabilities.

Grants to help fund diverse arts, heritage efforts

The money comes from the Oregon Cultural Trust, which gets money primarily from donations from Oregonians — they receive a cultural tax credit — and proceeds from the sale of special cultural license plates. The local coalition decides where to put Lane County’s share of the money doled out by the trust each year, with the goal of “preserving and enhancing Lane County’s diverse arts, heritage, and humanities efforts.” The latest round of grants went to support: The John G. Shedd Institute for the Arts: $600 to help get a nonauditioned adult singing group called The Wine and Cheese After Work Chorus off the ground.

Desserts With Benefits. Quinoa cupcakes… probably not the most appetizing phrase you have ever heard, and certainly not something you hear everyday!

Desserts With Benefits

But trust me, these cupcakes are 100% delicious. I mean, can you really go wrong with bananas, peanut butter and a little dose of healthy? See how moist that is? I wish I could magically hand you a cupcake through the screen you are looking at but technology hasn’t caught up to that yet (what a shame, more for me I guess…) These cupcakes are packed with banana flavor, reminiscent of banana bread just in a smaller package.

Hummingbird Cupcakes with "Cream Cheese" Frosting. Hummingbird Cake, a delightful traditional southern dessert, gets a pure vegetarian makeover as easy to bake cupcakes.

Hummingbird Cupcakes with "Cream Cheese" Frosting

The eggs have been omitted, so these aren't your grandma's old-fashioned cake — although I'm sure she'll love them (and never miss those eggs). The original Hummingbird Cake recipe was first published in Southern Living magazine in 1978 and has since become the magazine's most requested recipe — you can find it here. For my veganized version, I've also added shredded coconut a'la Martha Stewart's recipe for Hummingbird Cupcakes. A side note: This recipe makes a half-dozen jumbo cupcakes. Baking time will be less, and the recipe will yield one full dozen cupcakes if you are making regular-sized cupcakes.

A while back I got a request to do this, but I have not had the time nor the ingredients to make it before now. Let me just say that I regret not making this sooner. Sunflower Mac.

Desserts With Benefits. Every time I think of pancakes, I smile.

Desserts With Benefits

Not because they are totally freaking awesome moist and taste incredibly delicious, but because I remember how I used to eat them as a child. I would drown my pancakes in that fake Aunt Jemima stuff to the point where there was more syrup on my plate than pancakes. And I never understood why people used plates either, I needed a bowl to hold all that syrup!

Kind of like how I wonder why restaurants serve rice on plates with forks rather than bowls with spoons… it just makes more sense to use a bowl. Slow Cooker Recipes. Getting a delicious, healthy meal doesn’t have to entail hours in the kitchen.

WATCH: The Story of a Man Who Faked Insanity. TED and The Huffington Post are excited to bring you TEDWeekends, a curated weekend program that introduces a powerful "idea worth spreading" every Friday, anchored in an exceptional TEDTalk.

This week's TEDTalk is accompanied by an original blog post from the featured speaker, along with new op-eds, thoughts and responses from the HuffPost community. Watch the talk above, read the blog post and tell us your thoughts below. Become part of the conversation! My TED talk was for an experimental TED called TED Full Spectrum. Chris Anderson said he was tired of people getting up on stage with nothing but a powerpoint. My talk is based on my book, The Psychopath Test. Broadmoor, the secure hospital where Tony is a patient. It's something we all do. I tell you who would be even more unethical than me if they went on TV to diagnose someone from afar as a psychopath: any forensic psychiatrist or psychologist or anyone who works in that field as an expert.

Maybe Lyndon Johnson was bipolar.
