Paula’s Palate: Holiday recipes 11/17/15

Three-C Cookies Makes 2 to 21/2 dozen 3” cookies I developed this recipe as a way of combining some of my favorite decadent things to eat: cashews, (white) chocolate, and coconut. Since these all start with the letter “C,” I named them Three-C Cookies.  I was sodisappointed the first time I made these—they didn’t taste anything as […]

Poetry – For the Kitty Stretching in the Sunlight with Questionable Motives

For the Kitty Stretching in the Sunlight with Questionable Motives Kitty is pretty and sits in the sun, Her black fur is temptingly warm and inviting. If I were to stroke her would she come undone?

Poetry You Followed the Moon

You Followed the Moon You came from the East with the rising sun; Bounding through the flowers as we traced our waning shadows Towards a noonday picnic under cloudless skies.   So happy were we in the morning light, Late we noticed, lost in joy at your carefree abandon, You were off and chasing West […]

Poetry: The Trees Grow Out of the Air

The Trees Grow Out of the Air A Broken Sonnet   The old contented gentlemen will say That of the mighty tree; it grows from root And over years of nurturing it may Grow tall and broad from this established foot. On this they will repose and gently sigh When young men dare to dream […]
