I'm missing my grey and white cat from Easter morn from zayante school rd. Would love to have her back but would be content to know that she is with someone that found her and would like to keep her.

Hi, Santa Cruz! What's your fave fall treat? I'm sharing this pumpkin spice banana bread recipe, which is the best of both yummy worlds!
Easy, super moist, cozy, comforting, vegan (you can swap oil for butter, if you want) and can be converted to muffins. Add chocolate chips or walnuts to jazz it up!
I love this recipe and will be making it one or two more times this season. Hope you enjoy it too!
Get the recipe here: https://patch.com/california/danville/pumpkin-spice-banana-bread-cooking-courtney
And share your favorite fall treat in the comments below! (Yes I know it's still summer, but I'm counting down the days to sweater weather...)

Hey, Santa Cruz! If you've got 5 minutes, you can make my 4-ingredient magic maple tahini dressing, which brings a tangy-sweet brightness to salads, chicken, salmon, brussel sprouts and many other veggies!

No food processor needed for this vegan tahini dressing. Better than honey mustard, in my opinion, and I love honey mustard! Fall is just around the corner and I love maple everything in autumn.

I've got the recipe and video tutorial here (don't forget to submit your own original/family recipe to be featured on Patch!): https://patch.com/california/watsonville/magic-maple-mustard-tahini-dressing-cooking-courtney

Hope you had a restful long weekend.

My wife was a highly sought after (by parents), second grade, Master Teacher in the Morgan Hill USD. Upon retirement, we brought home the best of her personal classroom materials in large plastic bins, sorted by subject matter, so that we could still utilize them, as needed, to support the individual learning needs of 4 grandchildren, all then still in local elementary schools.

Today, we would like to gift the still relevant, and thus useful, learning materials to local teachers/schools, as the youngest of our grandkids is now in middle school.

If interested, and currently teaching at a Santa Cruz County elementary school, please CONTACT ME via eMail at:
randall.seger@yahoo.com,” stating your interest in the SUBJECT LINE

Please include name, phone number and preferred call time(s) to reach you to arrange a convenient time to visit (near the Boardwalk). I’ll then reply via TEXT, with MY PHONE number, and, when I call, answer any questions and, hopefully, arrange a visit.

BTW, there are enough giveaway materials to fill up a small SUV! (any teacher friends??)

Due to COVID, everyone must wear a mask.
