    Chocolate chip or something more exciting

    For as long as I can remember, I have enjoyed baking a variety of different sweets and candies. Above all I enjoy baking and eating cookies. Nothing, in my opinion, beats a warm cookie. They can be one of the easiest and quickest deserts to make while being delectably irresistible.

    You're uncommonly beautiful

    In photographer Karen Walrond’s talk for TEDxHouston  she shared her rules for photography and life: “Look for the Light.” Her rallying cry is, “I’m wildly convinced you’re uncommonly beautiful,” and often when people come into the library, I am reminded of that: every last one of you is a shining prism of your life and experiences and that is a thing of wonder and beauty. And guess what – we have something here for you.

In the past I have always avoided making my own Chinese food because the required ingredients and cooking techniques were so foreign to me and so many of the essential ingredients are rarely on hand.
