Just two students attended on the day after Spring break, and our recipes gave them much opportunity to practice knife skills.  To protect against accidentally stinging her eyes with hot pepper, Taniyah Waples used gloves when handling the jalapeno.  Neither Paola Rodriguez nor Taniyah were enthusiastic about trying our chili and guacamole, and both were pleased with the taste once they got past their reluctance to try something new.
