this is going to be a cold summer

*It's been awhile, but I'm back in California with a kitchen—a place where i can be creative—and that makes me really happy, even though it is cold out in the middle of May. I came home for the sunshine (among other things), and the weather gods are really letting me down.

*Still, I've been enjoying myself, relishing the fact that I don't have to eat dining hall dorm-food.

*Saturday morning breakfast was English muffins with avocado+jam; sunflower seed butter + bananas.

*I also made dinner for my entire family last night, which included roasted broccoli + cauliflower, baked tofu, and this dense chewy cornbread, among other things.

*Let's talk about this cornbread, which is not really typical cornbread—but it is one of my favorite breads as of late. It's made mostly from rice + oats + cornmeal, and I've been eating it at every meal. It's delicious and I can't get enough of it.

    The recipe for the cornbread comes from The Angelica Home Kitchen (here: http://www.amazon.com/Angelica-Home-Kitchen-Rousings-Restaurant/dp/1580085032) so due to copyright issues, I can't publish the recipe online - but I would wholeheartedly recommend this cookbook - it is one of my favorites.
