So this is old news, even to me. But seriously, if you haven't seen

You really need to; I'm pretty sure everyone I call a friend will love this deep down in some secret part of their being, even if they wouldn't admit it.

Jevan & I met over the MLK holiday.
That 1st weekend, and every year since, we bake a black & white (sometimes pink inside, sometimes swirled) cake to commemorate.
This year's cake was chocolate genoise, filled with white-chocolate Grand Marnier ganache, frosted w/ whipped cream, stenciled doctor in cocoa powder.

salad (jevan calls it mixed veggies)

  1. .25 yellow onion
  2. large handful baby carrots
  3. handful asparagus spears
  4. hot harissa to taste
  5. garam masala to taste
  6. honey
  7. dijon mustard
  8. 1 egg
  9. olive oil
  10. kosher salt to taste

  • finely chop .25 yellow onion
  • mix spices, oil, honey, mustard and onion in large bowl
  • blanch baby carrots & asparagus
  • boil egg
  • finely chop or rice egg, cut asparagus spears in half
  • mix it all up in the large bowl



Woke up thinking these biscuits would taste great, and they did. I used that staple of the American diet Bisquick, but I'm sure they'd be even more delicious from scratch.

  • Make your favorite drop biscuit recipe-
  • (since I used Bisquick I added a table spoon of walnut oil)
  • add diced ripe green d'Anjou pear to batter.
  • add a few crushed cardamom pods to the batter
  • serve warm with a potent blue cheese. ( I used Bleu d'Auvergne)
