I love a bookstore.  Seriously, just adore it.  The smell of the paper, the ink.  The people perusing the aisles, stopping to read from the center of a novel, or finding themselves enthralled by the picture of a cake on page 42 of a cookbook. It’s comforting. This weekend, I dropped in to Barnes & […]

Bourbon, Coffee, and Turkey.  Sounds like a delicious nap waiting to happen, don’t you think?

Flatbread is everywhere these days.  Every. Where.  Go to any restaurant and you are likely to see it pop up as an appetizer, possibly even the main course. It’s good stuff. It’s also very easy.
