Staff Appreciation A Delicious Affair

StaffLunch_062415AOne of the many Manhasset traditions in our district is the annual Staff Appreciation Luncheon Day. In late May, the SCA recognized all teachers, administrators and support staff for everything that they do for our students throughout the year with three luncheons, one in each school. The parents donated delicious salads, entrees, sides and desserts which provided a smorgasbord of items for all to enjoy. It was a “feel-good” day for all as the parents thanked the district on behalf of all of the Manhasset families while simultaneously, the faculty and staff were equally appreciative of the day’s delicacies and kind words.

Pound Cake With Caramel Drizzle

My dad’s birthday was last week, and I told him that part of his gift would be a homemade birthday cake. Low and behold, his request was my late grandmother’s original pound cake recipe. Over the years, I have adapted her recipe to make it skinnier, leaner and less dense in order to keep my figure, so finding her original recipe was no easy feat. Finally, after calling a few relatives, including my Aunt Rita (my grandmother’s younger sister), we sorted it out. My three daughters actually made the cake by hand (instead of using a mixer) and while that’s a lot of work, you could taste the difference. Please understand a mixer is perfectly fine to use, because unless you need to work your biceps, save yourself the workout. [Read more…]
