Karla Stockli (second photo) and Kris Caputo (top photo) came to Portales to tape lots of recipes featuring California figs. They also discussed how figs have become an important ingredient for food bloggers because of their versatility. I hope you'll enjoy trying some of the recipes they shared with us.

Charlene Patton is with the Home Baking Assn. in Topeka, KS and she demonstrated sculpting various types of breads and each one was made with the recipe below - Refrigerator Potato Dough.
