Caramel Brownie Cheesecake
This is a monkeyhead concoction so please don’t be disappointed with me that it’s not 100% homemade. Sometimes as a mom you have to go with your childrens ideas in order to lift their creative wings. Monkey One loves cheesecake and caramel, Monkey Two has a passion for brownies you put the two of these knuckleheads together and look at what they come up with… Caramel Brownie Cheesecake. You gotta love the way these boys think. To see their vision come to fruition we used one of our favorite brownie mixes, a no bake white chocolate cheesecake recipe from Williams-Sonoma and we tried Jamie’s homemade caramel recipe from My Baking Addiction.

By Peter Menzel. Twelve posters show families—in their homes with a week's worth of food displayed around them—in Bhutan, Chad, China, Ecuador, Germany, Guatemala, India, Japan, Kuwait, Mali, Mexico, and the United States. The curriculum guide includes critical thinking questions, writing prompts, activities, reading strategies, and a PowerPoint® presentation (with eight slides corresponding to each poster) that leads students through the process of visual analysis. By examining the photographs, as well as the country facts (life expectancy, obesity rate) and family information (food sources, cooking methods) provided on each 17"w x 22h" poster, students can draw inferences, compare and contrast, and make generalizations about our "hungry planet." The related hardback supplies more country statistics and an essay about the lives and eating habits of each family, along with brilliant full-color photographs.
Vanilla cheesecake with strawberry compote
8th December 2011By GuestPhotography by Adam A few weeks ago the industrial design team in Dunedin had a shared morning tea to celebrate a couple of birthdays. Annie made this beautiful cheesecake; it was so good we persuaded her to share her secret recipe with everyone! “I can’t remember ever having cheesecake when I was little… my mum wasn’t that into food; cooking or baking was merely a chore to her. Her signature dish was a sponge cake, but made from an instant cake packet – add some water and eggs and voila! It most certainly wouldn’t have any icing.
One man, 100,000 toothpicks, and 35 years: An incredible kinetic sculpture of San Francisco
Thirty five years ago I had yet to be born, but artist Scott Weaver had already begun work on this insanely complex kinetic sculpture, Rolling through the Bay, that he continues to modify and expand even today. The elaborate sculpture is comprised of multiple “tours” that move pingpong balls through neighborhoods, historical locations, and iconic symbols of San Francisco, all recreated with a little glue, some toothpicks, and an incredible amount of ingenuity. He admits in the video that there are several toothpick sculptures even larger than his, but none has the unique kinetic components he’s constructed. Via his website Weaver estimates he’s spent over 3,000 hours on the project, and the toothpicks have been sourced from around the world: I have used different brands of toothpicks depending on what I am building.
