The Apple Leaf | An open letter to WHS teachers

The laundry list of complaints that teachers have about their students seems to be ever-expanding. We’re always on our phones. We don’t wear enough clothing. We park in the back parking lot.

Q: What are the differences between baking soda and baking powder (double acting)? Why would one or the other be used in some recipes, and why are both used in some recipes?

In the Garden | Melons on the mind

I love eating fresh melon. Straight from a sunny garden, it is sweet and juicy and a little bit warm, just like summer itself. Frozen in chunks, melons are a welcome treat in the winter (especially for those suffering from a sore throat) and make a great addition to smoothies.
