Although the time in the kitchen was less this year than last, with having to go back to the office, I still enjoyed making a few new things, and finally got to cook again with Papa Joe. Here is a little walk down memory lane. I hope to be back in the kitchen a little… Continue reading 2020 in the Kitchen
We are coming to the close of yet another year. It always feels like it was just yesterday that the previous year just arrived. How fast 365 days can just fly by! I want to say thank you to friends, neighbors, colleagues, and family. Without all of you, the year would not have been half… Continue reading Goodbye 2021
