Minka's Rolls (Chocolate Cinnamon Rolls)

Apr 16, 2014
I finished reading "The Storyteller" by Jodi Picoult on my way to San Francisco. This is one of those books that will stick with you for a long time. It's so easy get consumed in the story and start developing a relationship with the characters. The story begins with a baker (Sage) who befriends Josef Weber (a camp supervisor at Auschwitz) and later reveals a startling connection with a lady named Minka (Sage's grandmother) who survives Auschwitz and tells the horrors she endured during the Holocaust.

“If you've lived through it, you already know there are no words that will ever come close to describing it, and if you didn't - you will never understand.”

Leek, Green Apple, and Walnut Salad

Apr 9, 2014
“It is a very beautiful day. The woman looks around and thinks: 'there cannot ever have been a spring more beautiful than this. I did not know until now that clouds could be like this. I did not know that the sky is the sea and that clouds are the souls of happy ships, sunk long ago. I did not know that the wind could be tender, like hands as they caress - what did I know - until now?”

Banana Bread Breakfast Cookies

Apr 2, 2014
I woke up giddy like a little girl yesterday. It's happens when I have breakfast waiting for me, even more so if its in some form of oats. I fell into a breakfast rut during whole30 and terribly missed my favorite breakfast hence these cookies were born in order to fill my longing for oats and dark chocolate without completely sabotaging the whole30 deal.
