Tofu Chorizo

Here is the tofu chorizo recipe that I have been working on. When I made this recipe a few weeks ago, I forgot it was on the stove and I ended up burning my first one! But luckily this came out really great and in the picture, I added it on top of pita bread and made a 'pizza'!

Pierogi

My friend, Steve, has a large family with seven brothers and sisters. And his Mom, Alice, was famous for her pierogi. Although Alice never taught me personally how to make pierogies, her kids agreed to share her recipe with me (and you) believing she would want us all to enjoy and know her recipe.  As I make Alice's recipe for the first time, I share with you the comfort, love, and warmth her family and friends enjoyed. May it bring a moment of joy and a smile to your table.

Follow along with my video on making Pierogi with cheese, potato, and sauerkraut fillings courtesy of Alice Cichowski.

Eric Gilleland - National Center for Atmospheric Research

Spatial forecast verification has exploded into an increasingly complicated set of tools for either automatically assessing forecast performance or providing diagnostic plots and other information.  A set of tools that breaks that mold by providing simple, easy-to-understand summary measures has also gained some traction in recent years, and are now included, for example, in the MET software.  No single summary will provide all the information needed and each will have its pros and cons.  Recent work has demonstrated some common pitfalls with each of them.  Predicated off of this work, a new summary measure is proposed that does not suffer from any of these flaws, while providing useful information about forecast performance.

Roasted Cauliflower & Leek Soup

This is a cozy, hearty soup that is great on those chilly winter days.  This can easily be made totally vegetarian by omitting the chicken stock and using vegetable broth instead.  Top with bacon, fresh chives (or green onions), cheese, or my recipe below for homemade croutons.

Homemade Croutons

I like to freeze leftover bread to make homemade croutons for salads and soups.  I usually have leftover buns, rolls and sometimes sandwich bread as there are only 2 of us in our household.  You can even toast the bread and make your own bread crumbs if you have a food processor.  For the bread crumbs follow this recipe, but then grind them up to your desired consistency.  Store in an airtight container.

Supervisor Orientation is now available as a eight-hour virtual training, spread out over three weeks. This program is designed to give supervisors a high-level understanding of their role and responsibilities in our organization. This orientation is required for all new supervisors, and is highly recommended for current supervisors or anyone interested in exploring advancement to a supervisory role.

The training highlights the responsibilities and legal duties of supervisors and applies these to real-world scenarios. The session focuses on issue-spotting and how to address legal situations through the life cycle of an employee (hiring, performance management, end of employment). We tell you what you need to know as a supervisor about harassment, discrimination, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Family Medical Leave Act, wage and hour laws, workplace safety, and much more.

You can register for Supervisor Orientation in Workday.

If you have questions about Supervisor Orientation, contact Mary Helen Matthews regarding training content, or Devon Duncan for help with Workday registration. We look forward to having you join us!

Warmly,

The LEAD Team

Mary Helen Matthews (Office of General Counsel)

Carolyn Brinkworth, Kristen Aponte, and Katy Putsavage (Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion)

Swedish Apple Ring

I’m missing visiting with you all while we enjoy a morning cup of coffee. So as we head into chillier weather, this recipe is one to make and enjoy with one of those cups of coffee we should be having together over a good chat. This recipe is one of my Grandma Svea's from Sweden. In her kitchen there was ALWAYS a coffee cake! When I was growing up I think I believed that the coffee cake existed for my Grandpa, and maybe it did. But a piece of cake was always available and it was a very “adult” thing to have with coffee. Grandma Svea’s cakes were dense but light, and flavored only with a small amount of extract and a few chopped nuts and dried or fresh fruits for filling. This cake recipe uses a bit of both -- dried and fresh fruits and is just the right amount of sweet to enjoy with your family and your morning coffee.

From Grandma Svea’s table to yours, I invite you to enjoy this Apple Ring Coffee Cake to help "ring" in a sweet NEW YEAR!

So follow along with the video and look out for more recipes on Life is a Banquet … Taste Everything!
