I've never cooked with actual truffles, but enjoy them tremendously. I recently had truffle saffron risotto in Monaco and i have to say it was the best stuff ever!

sushi on the plane? interesting, but not so much...

I love to take chopped up mango, almonds, nut and m&m mix, dried fruit, cottage cheese and pineapple and always, always a good piece of chocolate!

happy and safe travels.

Melinda, you got it right! Skim milk and splenda... before I quit!! I don't really miss drinking coffee, though I totally cheat with having put some in my flan last week. It was really good I have to say! :)

Bustelo also makes a really good one...it costs a bit more than the regular espresso that needs to be pressed... for a savings of 3 minutes and cleaning an espresso maker, I supposed the extra $1.50 MIGHT be worth it! :)

I was an addict up until 2 months ago. I literally use to have the equivalent of 4 American cups a day--of Cuban espresso! Can you imagine what it was like! I'd even have a cup as late as 9 pm and then complain when 3 am rolled around and I was wide awake and hungry! My friend urged me to quit and so I did--overnight. (note I had *cups* and not *shots*).

I don't really miss it. Interestingly enough. However, I found good use for my Bustelo espresso two weeks ago when I made an espresso flan! OMG! It was to die for. I think it's my new favorite dessert.

So my way of making coffee is in a French press, found very commonly in Latin kitchens to make espresso every morning!
I won't give mine up, in case I have withdrawal--but it's securely stored for now...

Check out my coffee flan recipe if you like, try it and thoroughly enjoy it! http://www.flanboyanteats.com/cooking_recipes/a-midnight-snack-better-than-se/

Does it have to be original or can it be a recipe we've done before?

oooh... thanks for the heads up. I'm much better with online reading than paper, these days. Much easier unless
they come in my mailbox. (hint to self).

will look forward to reading old and well written essays.

Good job.
