    I cannot wait to try a sea salt coffee. I am always looking for new things to try, so thanks for sharing….

    We love 85 Degrees and have been going there since right after it opened. The sea salt coffee is a real treat-why did my doctor have to decaffenate me? My favorite pastries are the cheddar filled rolls and the buttery twist with the garlic, cheese and green onions on top. They have wonderful almond squares and coconut. Their dough is typically slightly sweet even for the savory pastries. I found that I can’t get my heart set on a particular pastry before going in because they often run out even though they bake all day long. We took our friend who is a Chinese professional chef who was enamored with the incredible moon cakes and the beautiful purple and white taro rolls. Very traditional Taiwanese and the line is always out the door. Incredible find and so worth the wait.

    You know I love your writing. Did I really just read “pendulous beauties” in your description of a butternut squash?!” I especially enjoyed the eating local twist! So very Barbara Kingsolver of you.

    Thank you for sending this to me. I am starting to get more into cooking at home and love trying new recipes. The Butternut Squash Soup sounds amazing. I love making soup and will try it for sure.
