…from the Perspectives’ Holiday Kitchen
How you doin’? My Aunt Esther was my grandfather’s sister. She grew up in New York and then one day picked up her belongings, moved to Los Angeles and married a restauranteur. At the time he owned one of the only Chinese restaurants in town.
Dear Aunt Esther was a wonderful baker. I don’t know where she learned her baking skills, but she could bake up a storm with the best of them. We loved to have her over for dinner at least once a week. We just needed to pick her up early enough so she would have time to let her great bread doughs proof and bake.
Soft, sweet and aromatic, my Aunt Esther’s cloverleaf dinner rolls were always a family favorite at holiday times and get-togethers, and they're still as delicious as I remember. I cherish the memories I have of the sweet, yeasty aroma coming out of the kitchen… and of my dear sweet aunt.

Quip of the Day: “We all gain weight as we get older, because there's a lot more information in our heads. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.”
