Wishing Us All A Happy New Year In A More Peaceful, Less Violent World

A belated Happy New Year to all of you! 2015 was a year of violence in the United States and France and a year with a refugee crisis not experienced since World War II. I, for one, was only too happy to kiss 2015 good-bye.

I hope that 2016 is a happier, healthier, more peaceful world for all of us sharing Mother Earth. After all, it's the only planet that we have. I hope you try new, delicious recipes if that's your choice or you enjoy getting take-outs from the restaurants you love. I ended this recipe blog when I ran out of recipes to share. Nevertheless, I still love to cook and feel blessed to live in Chicago where I meet people from all over the world who have shared recipes from their home countries with me.

In other news, after a long absence from blogging, I started a new blog which you can visit at I hope you'll visit me there. I look forward to sharing what I've learned from people on my travels both near and far.

After much effort, I have published my book Breaking the Fall. It is available on Amazon as a paperback and as a Kindle. The link for it is It's also available on Nook and Smashwords.

I hope that you'll all take a look at it so that I can share the stories I've listened to from those walking in our midst whose stories have been invisible. They need to be heard. 

So Again. Happy New Year. May you enjoy great food, great travels, and the opportunities to make this world a better place.
