Add a little spice to flavor them however you'd like - cinnamon, lemon, almond. Even coconut. And there's nothing that beats the flavor, and texture, of homemade. Check out the step-by-step video above for tips, and follow the recipe below to make cinnamon marshmallow stars -- they're perfect treats for holiday gift-giving!

Dear SOS: On a recent trip to Silicon Valley, we went to breakfast one morning at a restaurant called the Country Gourmet in Sunnyvale . I had the whole wheat pancakes. These were some of the best I have ever had. I make my own whole wheat pancakes, but these were far better. A pleasant, nutty taste and a smooth texture. Yum. I would love to have the recipe. Any chance of getting it? Ronald Ross Rancho Palos Verdes Dear Ronald: We loved the light texture and flavor of this recipe, which combines a base of all-purpose and whole wheat flour with hints of cinnamon, vanilla and honey and a bright tang from buttermilk.

When you are standing in line to order at Sycamore Kitchen, the new breakfast-lunch place in the La Brea design corridor, you are going to be distracted by the bakery counter, which stretches on for yards. Because in addition to the chocolate croissants and gluten-free muffins you might expect at a cafe in this part of town, there are all kinds of French pastries that you don't often see around here: the almond-scented brioche slice called bostock, and the puckered Breton butter pastry kouign amann, the blueberry financier, and walnut galettes that shatter into powder if you so much as look at them harshly.

Homeless people sleeping in shelters will be hungry people. When people are hungry, it is good to give them food, but it should be nutritious food. Cost is a major factor. I do not know if the doughnuts are donated by the bakers, but I do know that a doughnut for a hungry person is not the solution to hunger. It will give a temporary lift followed by more intense hunger and depression. A couple of slices of cinnamon and raisin bread would be a better answer. The loaf costs about $1.80 and contains 18 slices, enough to give nine people a tasty snack and real nutrition at a cost of 20 cents a person.
