Make Something New Every Day

This blog is inspired by all those who love to cook, whether experienced or not, and who continue to experiment with new ideas & ingredients, and best of all, share their passion with others.

The first entries are recipes prepared by the students of Lionel Wilson College Preparatory Academy in Oakland, CA. Fifteen students with varying cooking experience participated in my weekly workshop (via Tutorpedia), and successfully prepared various meals, snacks, and baked goods as part of an after-school program.

Along with the recipes from that class, I will continue to add new seasonal items, spanning every genre of the culinary world, as well as a helpful list of links to recipes, instructional videos, and places to shop and volunteer in your area.

Feel free to ask me questions and share your recipes and ideas as well. I look forward to cooking with you.

Mango Salsa

This salsa is delicious on its own, scooped up with tortilla chips or other veggies, and makes a great accompaniment to salmon, fish tacos, grilled chicken...the list goes on. 

All the Things 
1 can black beans, rinsed & drained
1 waxed cucumber, peeled, seeded & diced
1 red bell pepper, seeded & diced
1 mango, peeled & diced
1 jalapeno, seeded and minced
1 shallot, minced
cilantro, minced
lime juice (about 1/2 a lime)
rice vinegar

Stir it up, and season to taste. Makes a lot, so plan your meals around it for a few days, or share with friends!

Seeding a cucumber. I'll add the guts to my juicer later.
