I will never move again. However, I am reminded by many that one should “never” say “never”. Well, at least the next move will be in the twilight years, when our needs are a bit different. The Mayflower van pulled up with Paul still sorting and packing his boxes of papers and magazines. The accumula­tion of… read more »

Adventures in Eating: Curried Eggplant Soup

It is rare when I can take a recipe just as it is and think it superb. Most times, I like to add and subtract ingredients and sort of make it my own thing, much like moving into a new home and redoing it to make it feel like your home. This recipe is an… read more »

Adventures in Eating: Texas Style Fajita Sauce

How, when, and where the name and the food we call Fajita got its start is unknown to me. Even some verbal research in Mexican restaurants unearthed… nada.
