    Here in the southwest U.S. we rarely think of using avocados as a dessert, even though the avocado pear is a fruit. In other parts of the world, ranging from Indonesia to Brazil these fruits are made into desserts and sweet beverages. Now that my fuerte avocado is bearing fruit, I'm planning lots of avocado desserts. Note: the avocado leaves can be dried, ground into a powder and used as a spice. It has an anise taste which some Mexican recipes call for. Also, if you can find fuerte avocados, they are creamier than Hass and make a better dessert. This recipe was adapted from: The Africa cookbook, Tastes of a Continent, by Jessica B. Harris

    Recipe #274646

    In it's 59 years as a Hollywood celebrity hangout, Chasen's had ample time to develop recipes for special clients. However, Shirly Temple was one of only two people who had a recipe from Chasen's named for her. The story behind the drink is that Shirley, at the height of her fame as a child star, came to the restaurant with her parents, who were having a before-dinner cocktail. Shirley wanted one of her own, so the bartender concocted this one for her. Non-alcholic cocktails have been named "Shirly Temples" ever since. This drink is served in a highball glass with ice, and garnished to look like a cocktail; and served with a straw. Other sodas can be substituted, such as a lemon-lime soda. Information from the archives of the Los Angeles Library.

    Tibetan food is usually very mildly seasoned. According to the chef at my favorite Tibetan restaurant, it is the least spicy of the Himilayan cuisines. However, various hot sauces are served on the side. This chili sauce is one of the popular ones. It has two versions, one featuring yogurt, the other with tomato. This sauce does not keep for longer than a few days because the fresh cilentro loses flavor quickly.
