Quinoa Cherry Bars

This recipe was originally meant as a post-Halloween recipe.  After all that candy, you want something that’s healthy but still tastes good.  Let’s call it a transition snack.  But wait, Halloween was almost a month ago??

Salted Buttermilk Milkshakes

Times they are a-changing! Two weeks ago I was finishing my thesis, looking for jobs, and worrying about fitting my resume into two pages. This week I have one part time job writing about science, which you all know I love to do, and the promise of a full-time job that will hopefully start early next year.

I really didn’t know what to do with myself. So we had some sparkling wine (of course) and I made milkshakes.

Corn Creme Brulee

Corn 1: “Can I tell you something?”
Corn 2: “I’m all ears!”
Corn 1: “I feel like I’m putting on a lot of weight.”
Corn 2: “Nah, you’re just a little husky.”
Corn 1: “Aww shucks, you’re too nice.”

Was that too corny?  I’m not even sorry.

Mix And Match Pesto

I always have leftover greens.  I buy a bunch of parsley, use a few stems and then watch the rest go bad.  I buy a box of arugula, because of course it only comes in giant boxes, use some in a salad, and then the rest just sits there forgotten in the fridge.
