I honestly can not figure out where the time goes. I try to post right after a cooking event, but...it seems to slip away...elusive...aludes you...then in a breath...it's gone. Fortunately for a trusty camera, an android phone, a good memory, hand scribed menus on backs of beo's, and some late night contemplation deep in thought...I am able to re-enact the soiree as it went down for you on this humble blog. Enter Valentines Day 2012...hopefully, you will find enjoyment in what you see just as lovers were laid.

thank you Dorette...I am glad and excited that not only the food I cook and display is moving, but my writing as well. I truly enjoy both. My biggest passion is in my cooking but writing about it and speaking about it is a deep passion as well. Merci to you!
