Saturday Morning Beefcake: Some of Our Best

"Good Morning Kiss" was the perfect introduction over two decades ago to Carmen Lundy, excellent jazz vocalist who too often goes unheralded.

Good Morning Kiss was the album that she produced on a label she created back in 1985. Included here is also the perfect "Perfect Strangers" a song often performed by multi-talented Ilene Kristen in her cabaret act. Lundy encouraged Ilene to do it and Kristen does it perfect justice.

"Kiss" does everything it is supposed to about the morning after the night before when two people came together.

Selling a good song is simply celebrating the human experience and making it beautiful just as photographer Jeff Palmer did with these beautiful black and white photos.

Julee Rosso’s Breakfast Focaccia

Potatoes, 500 grams, preferably Yukon Gold or Yellow Finn, peeled, boiled and mashed
Active Dry Yeast., one quarter ounce
All Purpose Flour, four and one half cups
Coarse Salt, one teaspoon
Unsalted Butter, one tablespoon, softened

1. Reserve the water from boiling the potatoes and reserve.
2. Combine the potato water with the yeast and one half teaspoon sugar. Stir. Combine well. Let it foam up eight to ten minutes.
3. With an electric mixer with a dough hook, combine one half cup sugar, four cups flour and salt.
4. Add potatoes and yeast mixture. Beat for about five to eight minutes.
5. Add a bit more flour (one half cup). The dough will be wet and sticky.
6. Beat in the butter.
7. Scrape the dough into a bowl and coat with vegetable oil. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
8. Punch down the dough in the morning.
9. Lightly spray and/or wipe a deep dish pizza pan.

1. Combine the fruit and vanilla and four cups of water. Bring to a boil in a sauce pan. Then simmer for about twenty minutes for the fruit to soften.
2. Drain. Reserve vanilla bean. Pat and dry the fruit.
3. Whisk the egg white in a small bowl until foaming. Brush the surface of the dough.
4. Scatter the fruit on the surface, press the fruit into it slightly.
5. Arrange the bean decoratively in the middle and sprinkle the sugar over the surface.
6. Bake for 40-50 minutes until crust is golden. Cool.
7. Serve warm or at room temperature

According to answers.com [we’re just posting this and do not know how accurate it is]

Typically, semen contains rather high nutritional content. In one typical ejaculation (approximately one teaspoon), semen contains 150 mg of protein, 11 mg of carbohydrates, 6 mg fat, 3 mg cholesterol, 7% US RDA potassium and 3% US RDA copper and zinc.

There are trace amounts of several vitamins in a regular, healthy, ejaculation-full of semen. In fact, the amount of vitamin C is about the same as in an orange.
A typical ejaculation fills up about one teaspoon; the actual amount is determined by a man's age (younger men usually make more semen), when he last ejaculated, and how long he's aroused before ejaculating, among other factors. Contrary to what you've heard, semen is not loaded with calories. Each teaspoon of ejaculate has about 5 - 7 calories and some 200 - 500 million sperm. Since sperm make up only about 1 percent of semen, what accounts for the other 99 percent? Well, its other ingredients include:
• Fructose sugar
• Water
• Ascorbic Acid (aka vitamin C)
• Citric acid
• Enzymes
• Protein
• Phosphate and bicarbonate buffers (bases)
• Zinc
Can swallowing semen enrich a poor diet? Unless you're gulping gallons of it each day, it's no substitute for real nutritious cuisine.

It is anti depressant and contains epinephrine.
