PostForum: Recipe Box   Posted: Mon Apr 07, 2008 4:27 am   Subject: Got any interesting cranberry recipes?

Well, maybe at a zendo retreat. But most Buddhists are Indian, Vietnamese, Japanese--just regular people. They eat a pretty wide variety of flavors.

Hi--very envious of you. Two years ago we took our then-5-year-old to Paris (hooked onto the end of my husband's conference)--it was just like having two teenagers in their prime, I'm pretty sure...a ...

Thanks Rainey! I'm doing my best to avoid a latke frying marathon tonight. (Luckily it's still warm enough in Pasadena to open the windows afterward). For my money, I'd skip the frying altogether and ...

PostForum: Cooking & Eating   Posted: Tue Dec 04, 2007 11:43 pm   Subject: poppy seeds
