Here is one way to make your next party a smashing success. It’s called Aurora and is TCCs black light phosphorescent take on jungle-juice… it’s pink under regular light, but glows blue under black light. I can see it now… Doctor, I’m peeing rainbows. Originally conceived in 2006, it is a drink that is pink in natural light, but glows aqua-marine in black-light. Thus, it represents the two main colors of the aurora-borealis. So, without further ado here is the recipe.

“Scalloped” is an attractive word, isn’t it? When I hear it I think of several things: first, there’s scallops, as in the seafood—totally delicious. Then there’s the scalloped shape that can live on the edge of a pair of shorts or on the collar of a woman’s blouse—always pretty and dainty.

I can think of no better place to exist, actually. So when I came across TK member Shelbi Keith’s recipe for Scalloped Hasselback Potatoes , I knew we were going to become fast friends.

Or, call them egg rolls or spring rolls, these beauties are my mom’s claim to fame! Egg rolls with sweet soy sauce and rice vinegar dipping sauce Egg rolls hold many treasured memories for me…. The other day I went to pick up some Chinese take out and smiled to myself because in the corner there were 3 teenagers peeling lumpia wrappers for egg rolls and chatting. I think most of my conversations with my mom during my teen years took place around the dining room table while she made egg rolls and I had to peel hundreds of lumpia wrappers.
