End of the Quarter

Summer rolls, lumpia, curry, and crepes signal the beginning of a much deserved fall break.

English Lunch

After correcting hundreds of essays the past 2 weeks, the Language Arts Department deserves this kind of lunch-lox and bagels and crepes.

Chocolate Swirl Cheesecake

Magnolia Bakery's original cheesecake recipe. My friend Josette said just one bite improved her day. R
ich, decadent, with the just right amount of chocolate.

Lilikoi Cheesecake

When Carl hands you lilikoi, you make lilikoi cheesecake! The scent of this exotic fruit is intoxicating.

Chicken Stock

I am obsessed with making use of leftovers. A rotisserie chicken yields a dinner, paninis, and stock! Homemade stock tastes so much better than from a can.

Muffin 1001

I zeroed in on the apricot and pumpkin walnut recipes in the 1001 Muffins cookbook. Nothing to hoot and holler about. Taste, texture, and appearance were mediocre.

Jack and Mara

They're all grown up. Mara's now driving and Jack has two jobs-lizard hunter and bird slayer

Maple Walnut Bar

Maple adds a natural sweetness to this spicy, moist and dense bar.
