  [dropcap]W[/dropcap]e just got back from almost two weeks abroad.  We went to northern Italy and ended in Paris.  Out of the entire trip there were two meals, TWO, that were just “ok”.  Both countries LOVE their carbs.  Breakfasts there aren’t like here so getting […]

[dropcap]B[/dropcap]aby it’s cold outside!  And I mean really freaking cold!  I think we went from an Indian Summer to straight up sub Arctic temperatures.  When I woke up the other morning the temperature was four.  FOUR degrees.  Not only was it four degrees it then said […]
