Pizza for the home kitchen
 
This is the only pizza worth making at home: http://trib.al/RzbpFqM
One reason to ditch that pizza stone. If you can make a batch of chocolate chip cookies, you can make some amazing hot pizza at home.

Launching in 2017, the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS)​ is an astrophysics mission designed to use four cameras to scan the entire sky, searching for planets outside our Solar System, known as exoplanets. The mission will monitor over 500,000 of the brightest stars in the sky, searching for dips in their brightness that would indicate a planet transiting across. TESS is predicted to find over 3,000 exoplanet candidates, ranging from gas giants to small rocky planets. About 500 of these planets are expected to be similar to Earth's size. The stars TESS monitors will be 30-100 times brighter than those observed by Kepler, making follow-up observations much easier. Using TESS data, missions like the James Webb Space Telescope​ can determine specific characteristics of these planets, including whether they could support life.

"Mini supernova" explosion could have big impact. In Hollywood blockbusters, explosions are often among the stars of the show. In space, explosions of actual stars are a focus for scientists who hope to better understand their births, lives, and deaths and how they interact with their surroundings.

Using +NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory Chandra X-ray Observatory, astronomers have studied one particular explosion that may provide clues to the dynamics of other, much larger stellar eruptions. Details:

Apple - Almond Tart was buttery, flaky and the filling was full of natural apple flavor. Looking forward to trying other pastries. (Items average $3-$5)

I have to agree with the comments re: buns recently ordered "The Pearl" (blue cheese and bacon toppings) and the bun fell apart a few bites into trying to eat one. Ended up being very messy meal - tho tasty. Another, change which has decreased my previously more regular visits is payment is now 'cash only' - I often am without cash and use credit cards or a debit card for most purchases. There is an onsite ATM but I generally avoid using private ATMs due to the excessive fees. I still recommend ordering the Mini since it is a good value and very good... Add Grilled onions which are free and pickles both are gratis - and really help make this a special burger. I prefer the onion rings over the French Fries but I don't order either and instead order the side salad which is mixed greens (no iceberg lettuce in this salad), fresh grated carrots tomatoes, mushrooms, red onions and candied walnuts - a large serving for the price. The decor/atmosphere is the one underwhelming aspect of this place combined with lack of tables for dine in - taking the food to go might be the best option. (Edited 12/Aug/2014)
