Welcome to my Blog where good food, good wine and good company is a must! After all, you only live once so you should enjoy life to the fullest. For me, enjoying life is eating delicious food. Of course, there are other things that are just as important like having family, friends, good relationships, etc. But this is about FOOD! Nom Nom Nom. This does not mean it has to be the most expensive meal as sometimes even the most simplest meals can be the most delicious. And also, since I am allergic to shellfish, I would probably not be able to order the most expensive meal on the menu (which tends to be seafood). Does this limit me? Perhaps. It just gives me more room to enjoy all the other foods out there. Thank you for stopping by and leave a comment or any suggestions or requests as I would love to get to know my readers out there. “Cooking is like making love, you do it well, or you do not do it at all”
