I am the eternal searcher, I love learning new techniques and subjects. I have changed careers several times in this incarnation and will probably change it several more times before I depart this not so mortal coil. I am fascinated by any thing new (or old that is new again) but I am absolutely smitten with the idea that everyone should be able to eat well on a dime/ yen/ penny /.... you get the message. Just because you are lactose/fructose/ nut/ gluten intolerant does not mean that you cannot have a delightfully sinful treat or a nutritious meal on the table. This Blog is about some of my recipes that I am happy to share to assist the world in eating a better state.
