I wanted to make Egg Foo Yuong.
It was cooking class in 6th grade; mid-Passover. The teacher announced that those of us who observed Passover would be making Matzo Brei, and everyone else would be making Egg Foo Yung.
“Can I have a show of hands of those who observe Passover, please?” she asked with what appeared to be an evil glint in her eye.
Yes, evil, to me..because, seriously, Matzo Brei versus Egg Foo Yuong? Not even remotely fair! Plus, I’d already had my fair share of matzo brei at home for three days straight. She knew some of us were going to get the shaft. Egg Foo Yuong > Matzo Brei; no contest.

If you love streusel, you will love this Brown Butter Raspberry Chocolate Chip Streusel Cake OR Brown Butter Raspberry White Chocolate Streusel Cake (your choice of chocolates!) because it’s loaded with streusel..possibly more streusel than you’ve ever seen on one cake! THREE whole cups of streusel!!
I love warm rainy days in the spring and summer. I love the scent of lilacs. I love the smell of Fall. I love when someone brushes my hair. Are you gagging yet? Well you won’t be when I tell you what I love next.
I love streusel..lots and lots of streusel. Who doesn’t? I don’t think I’ve ever met a person who doesn’t love streusel. However, I know plenty of people who hate the scent of lilacs, abhor rainy days, despise Fall because it’s the official end of summer, and can’t stand someone else brushing, much less touching, their hair.

These Six-Seed Garlic Onion Poolish Rolls are so loaded with healthy and yummy seeds, that you might not want to eat them outdoors since the birds may go batty!
I had the strangest thought the other day. Actually, it’s not too strange; it’s something I’m sure a lot of people think about, but I put a virtual spin on it. Wouldn’t it be great if our lives were equipped with system restore? I know, I know..many wouldn’t change a thing, they’re happy with their lives, lessons learned etc etc etc, but personally, I wouldn’t mind a few ‘safe points” to go back to. I have three in mind, and those are three where I would take a tight left instead of a swooping right at that proverbial fork in the road.
Two of these ‘safe points’, as you would imagine, are very poignant, but one is kind of trivial and you’re probably going to laugh. I wish I could go back to early 2009 and save Herbie, my super-duper, high-octane sourdough starter ‘who’ (it’s alive!) was a little over 2-years-old when I started to neglect him.
