This is the first recipe posted on this site and I don’t want you to get the wrong idea.

Not all the recipes on the cafe’s menu will be as nutritious as this one (sweets are too good to completely ignore).

What each recipe has to have, is a bold ingredient to open the door to what’s possible when cooking at college or the years that follow.

Like substituting in “RRPH” (roasted red pepper hummus) for the “B” (bacon) in a traditional B.L.T sandwich.

The substitution may excite you, surprise you, make you say yum or even yuck. Or maybe it just makes you a little more curious about other possibilities you can put on your toasted sandwich!!!
