In April, Richard and I travelled to Hong Kong to visit our son, Creighton, who lives and works there.

We then each prepare one of the recipes, share… Continue reading What’s On Your Plate: Greek Baked Vegetables (Briam)

Cheater, Cheater, Turkey Eater!

What’s On My Plate: A Divisive Issue
Recently, there has been much online debate over the flood of personal food pics on social media. This caused me some reflection.
