I often wondered who liked black licorice! I can't imagine all the black jelly beans I would pluck from my Easter basket. I used to think I hated the flavor until I actually tasted it! The anise seeds are slightly crushed which renders a subtle flavor and the chocolate is quite lovely. This is the second recipe in two days from Joy the Baker cookbook. Many more to come!
It's ironic how I do not possess an ounce of artistic ability and yet I have so many artist friends. The annual Open Studios showcases artists from all over the island with so many ranges of style and medium. My favorite artists featured were Maha for sculptures, Denise for designs and paintings, and Kuhao with his travel photography.
You notice the young, yoga clad patrons as soon as you walk into this quirky vegan/vegetarian cafe on the North Shore. Not only is the crowd good looking but the food is fresh, colorful, and picture perfect! I find the Lionel Richie pillows comfortable and endearing (Hello..is it me you're looking for?)as I enjoy my pretty quiche.
