Last year, for my 30th birthday, we went to a resort in Vietnam. It was a simple time. Wake up to the sun rising over the ocean. Do some yoga. Watch the crabs on the beach and then swim in said ocean. Shower and head over for breakfast.

Did you know you could eat roasted buckwheat kernels without cooking them? I didn’t. I bought a bag at Bulk Barn and when I opened it, the smell was so delicious that I just had to try one. Surprisingly, it was soft enough to crunch into!
That’s when I knew I had to use them in a dessert recipe.

The following is entirely made up and is not affiliate in any way with the official Gilmore Girls television show…
Scene: Rory and Lorelai are preparing to have a mother/daughter night in.
Lorelai: Oh, let’s make cocktails!
Rory: Do we know how to make cocktails?
Lorelai: People are always makin’ ‘em on TV. How hard can it be?
Lorelai rummages in kitchen cupboard and emerges with some bottles of liquor.

I can’t remember when I started making my own lunches for school, but I do remember that I would get into a lunch rut where I would pack the same thing every day. A sandwich, a yogurt, an apple (peeled and sliced by my mom – I had to draw the line of independence somewhere), some crackers, and a juice box.
At one point, it was bologna on white bread with mustard. Every day.
