Remembering the simple magic of childhood.

  When I was little I loved to pretend, and as children do, I could see that there was magic everywhere. I could talk to anything and it could come alive and talk back. The stairs could become a waterfall in an instant. My bedroom floor could become lava, and the only way I could escape was by jumping on the items strategically scattered on the carpet. I could strip off my clothes, put my underwear on my head, and leap into the room where my parents were hosting a dinner party only to proclaim "I am UNDIE MAN!"

All of these things are wonderful because they take time and effort. You can taste that in the finished product. Well, here is the good news. We did the hard work for you. Today's...

Traveling Light

A long time ago (or what feels like a long time ago) there was a person who wanted to cook for their special someone but they kept thinking of the same dishes that they had made before. The internet wasn't much help because if they searched generic chicken recipes, they found exactly that. They needed help. So they asked their special someone a question. One simple question that would provide them a direction. They asked "Where do you want to go tomorrow?" Now it took some clarification but it became quite common that once a week, they would ask if "you could go anywhere in the world tomorrow...
