Whenever I hear people talking about what they ate as a child I’m always stumped. What didn’t I eat?!?! I shoved food in my mouth by the handfuls. Literally. I was super shy as a kid but not about food. Even if it was something I didn’t like I would eat it again just to remind myself why I hated it. Celery? I hate celery but I’ve never had it here before. Let me give it a whirl. Yup, still don’t like it. I’ll try it again next week in Aunt Dee’s potato salad.
“Kissing Crust”: In baking, the kissing crust is the pale slightly underdone, portion of a loaf that was in contact with the loaf next to it during baking. -As defined by Larousse Gastronomique
I have been volunteering at The Ali Forney Center for a little over a year and it has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. I have never met a more dedicated passionate bunch of people in my life. It’s one thing to write a check or drop off clothes and another to get involved. Like my good friend Oprah told me “people respond to love”. I totally agree.
