COFFEE BEANS & BEINGS / CROCK POT COOKING WITH COFFEE



Followers of this blog (thank you, thank you) note that “Coffee Beans & Beings” column appears on Saturdays (almost always) since we began PillartoPost.org back in 2011.   And, a mere whisper of the word coffee will land coverage here each Saturday.

Today, we discovered coffee as one of the ingredients in a slow cooker pot roast recipe, "Slow Cooker Amish Pot Roast," which appeared on Sarah Olson’s blog titled “The Magical Slow Cooker.”  And as the cliché goes: the rest is history.

Sarah, a veteran blogger and cookbook author, points out she discovered this recipe online and we’re stoked she did.

ONE PICTURE WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS



A 16-year-old student living in Los Angeles has won first prize in the Sony 2017 World Photographic Awards in the Youth/Beauty Image category.  Katelyn Wang photographed a dramatic scenic while standing on a bluff above Lake Pehoa in Chile, where she visited in March 2016.

Her image called “On top of the world” was one out of 227,000 entries from more than 180 countries.

Said photo/journalist Damien Demolder, who was chair of the youth competition for the Sony awards, “This is an absolutely breathtaking view that has been captured with equally breath-taking skill. Katelyn was lucky with the conditions, and that helps, but her composition and exposure are perfect too. She has cleverly used the water and the foreground land to lead us into the scene beyond the little bridge and house to the magnificent mountains in the background. It is a really wonderful photograph.”
