The Wonderful World of Words   May 13, 2014

Eating is one of my favorite things to do. I have a Google document where I keep track of restaurants I want to visit, then dutifully check them off as I slowly make my way through it. I’ll try almost anything once, but like most people, I harbor a few food aversions: pickled items, soggy green beans and things that look too Continue Reading
