Plasma Cutting A Coffee Roaster, Texas Sheet Cake and A Salmon Lunch Bento

A round-up of tasty morsels from Valley food blogs.

We've been enjoying following Joe Johnston's love affair with coffee via his online documentary, The Roaster Project. His latest post shares the plasma cutting work that Acme Metal Works in Gilbert did to the roasting bowl of the coffee roasting amaze-machine.


How about a little chocolate cake with your coffee? Everybody needs a good Texas Sheet Cake recipe and Meagan from Scarletta Bakes looks like she has a winner. We think she'd make J.R. Ewing and Matthew McConaughey proud. If you haven't been on the blog lately you have to scroll through previous posts for some super clever Arizona-style baked goods like Candied Jicama Breakfast Muffins and Pinyon Sandies.

We were happy to see a post from Lunch Bucket Bento; there hasn't been one since February and the light and summery salmon with grapefruit and fennel salad was a nice intro to hot weather lunch ideas.
