Lions, Tigers, And…

Marco Paolo Spiced Pumpkin with Burnt Caramel

Marco Paolo Spiced Pumpkin with Burnt Caramel

  “Spiced pumpkin with burnt caramel.” For us, those words create visions of fall and plant ghost-flavors on the tongue. Spiced pumpkin with burnt caramel is the new fall flavor, along with passionfruit and ginger, from Marco Paolo Chocolates and may be sampled at the Artisanal L. A. fall show at The Reef in downtown […]

Limits

Limits

Limits by Percival Everett In the darkness that is our room, I search. Not for you, for you are sleeping, breathing that sleep breath, Exhaling through that small aperture, good for playing the flute.

Buffalo Sprouts

Buffalo Sprouts

Buffalo wings have been a long-time favorite in my household. Unfortunately, wings are often floured, and even when they’re not, they usually serve up as much saturated fat and cholesterol as they do heat. This recipe banishes the bad stuff, but keeps the spice. Easy to put together, my Buffalo hummus sauce magically transforms Brussels […]
