Most of my food is fresh and flavorful. We live in a part of California that is famous for farmer’s markets and for produce stands on the side of the road.

I’ll be writIng a lot about this subject – both the “finds” that I make and the frustrations of finding just the right thai curry paste or chocolate sauce.
