Technical Difficulties …

I’m experiencing some glitches here … all comments ever made on my site have disappeared from my WordPress Dashboard and when someone tries to fill out the comment form to leave a new comment, well, they can’t.

Thanksgiving Ideas

Thanksgiving Ideas

Are you hosting Thanksgiving this year? I am and I’ve been planning what to make for weeks. Along with the usual suspects of turkey and the traditional Greek rice stuffing, I’m hoping to bring a couple of new flavors to our holiday table with a side dish of Creamed Onions and another of  Sauteed Kale and Mushrooms. Have you decided exactly what you’ll be serving? Are you sticking with tradition or cooking up something new?
