"In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different. Al little bad taste is like a nice splash of paprika. We all need a splash of bad taste-its hearty, its healthy, its physical. I think we could use more of it. No taste is what I am against" My place to find recipes that you, your family and your friends will not only love but will want to make time and time again.
