A favorite from last year, this one’s going on the menu again this weekend:   I am a total rookie when it comes to Asian foods of any variety.  I’m quite sure this isn’t authentic anything but it sure tasted good.  Notice my scrawled notes?  That’s how most of my recipes look, at least until [...]

There’s a lot to be said for getting older. Sure, youth has its advantages, but I wouldn’t trade a single one of them for the feeling of contentment that comes from being satisfied with your accomplishments, comfortable in your own skin, and happy with both where you are and where you’re headed.
