Master Chef Junior.

These kids are ~10 years old and they’re cooking flawless Beef Wellington.  Layer cakes.  Escargot.  From memory.  While being timed.

Meanwhile I have to consult Google every time I want to roast a vegetable.

These things are miraculous.  They are a serious contender for the Best Holiday Candy title (the others being Mint Truffle Hershey Kisses and Coconut Hershey Kisses, available at Christmas and Easter, respectively).The apple flavor is strong enough to be noticeable but subtle enough to blend perfectly with the caramel and chocolate.  It’s almost like a spiced apple cider flavor, or like a slice of apple taken out of an apple pie.  And it is DELICIOUS.  I had to hunt for these - no luck at Target or the grocery store - and finally found them at CVS for almost $5 (eek).  But it was money well spent.  I was going to bring them in to work to share but couldn’t bring myself to do it.

Yes now please.Pea shoots are my thing lately.  Today I had them in a sandwich [whole wheat mini pita, roasted red pepper hummus, thin sliced roasted chicken, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, pea shoots, shredded cheddar]… but with strawberries and ricotta sounds absurdly good.
