Picky Eaters?

I never liked the term picky eater. One of my daughters has a huge range of foods and tastes she accepts and even loves. She can eat bitter chocolates, tea, cilantro, onions, spices, etc. The other?

I Bought An Egg Poacher

There are so many ways to cook the humble egg. Eggs can be hard boiled, soft boiled, hard scrambled, soft scrambled, fry sunny side up, fry over easy, fry over medium, fry over hard, or made into an omelet or a frittata.

If you have been reading this blog often you probably wonder if there is any holiday I like. In truth, there are very few. One of the ones I don’t care for anymore is Thanksgiving.
