Sushi Salvation

One who is full loathes honey, but to one who is hungry everything bitter is sweet. (Proverbs 27:7) That was me that day long ago.

A Recipe for Disaster

Dinner this evening consisted of delicious pancakes and fantastic maple syrup. Believe it or not, that statement could not be more relevant to this post.  Last weekend I tent camped in Door County, WI.  One of the mornings, breakfast ended up being pancakes and syrup.   I was not impressed.   I don't like "pancakes."  Or "syrup."  … Continue reading Picky, Picky, Picky…Or Not.
