Garlic Chive Goat Cheese with Mango Jalapeno Jelly Bites

Saturday, April 30th, 2005

I came to our Saturday Market with an agenda to pick up produce for making meatballs. My well laid out plans got hi-jacked by my favorite jelly stand, Byrd’s Basket when I stopped to see what was new this weekend. I unfortuantley missed out on the pommegranate jelly, but I got pulled in by another [...]

Snake River Iced Tea

Thursday, April 28th, 2005

Snake River Iced Tea has developed a devout group of followers over here in Eugene, Oregon. We blame it all on Thom, who likes to hand these out on our summer camping trips. Now, a whiff of lemon and whiskey instantly transports me river side on a warm sunny day surrounded by happy people and [...]

Lemon Zucchini Pizza

Wednesday, April 27th, 2005

Occasionally I find myself propelled to exclaim outloud which food items I could LIVE on…  ”I could live on nothing but zucchini!” I exuberantly shouted after tasting this pizza. Layered on a bed of creamy mild goat cheese, this zucchini pizza reminds the mouth of warm sunny days and hints at the need for Snake [...]

Cilantro Chili Pizza

Saturday, April 23rd, 2005

Weary and tired, Sweets and I dragged our jet-lagged bodies into our rental car, and headed up the coast line to Hilo to eat up time before we could collapse in the vacation house we had rented. The ten hour flight did not lend itself to a full night’s sleep, which only contributed to us [...]

Vanilla Vinegar

Monday, April 18th, 2005

Vanilla has been on my mind the last week. My tax preparation nibbling was an excuse to eat butter and vanilla, combined in the tasty amalgamation of a cookie. My morning oatmeal can’t do without a splash of vanilla too. I heard a rumor that vanilla bean prices are expected to drop soon, and am [...]

the Tax Man Muncheth

Wednesday, April 13th, 2005

The last few days have felt a little hectic and simply have speed by way too quickly. Perhaps it has to do with munching on these cookies? Work’s been a little bit full, with a couple of high school and middle school tours of our lab thrown in the last week to keep me on [...]

Month Long April FOols

Thursday, April 7th, 2005

Pdf download of a fake paper ipod. I was in quite a quandry back on thursday night… the night before April Fools Day. I was horribly sick at home, couldn’t really walk very far, and yet I really wanted to go into work to leave pranks for everyone. Even my Sweets was begging me to [...]

Orange Juice All Around!
