It’s raining outside. The leaves are changing colors and one by one are falling on the ground. I don’t remember when I last heard a bird singing. The squirrels are running everywhere looking for food. My dears, fall is upon us. Don’t get me wrong, I love the smell of rain, I just don’t like…

I love dipping bread into spiced olive oil. I remember when my grandma baked flat bread and we all gathered around the table to dip small pieces of bread in salty olive oil. I loved watching my grandma making bread. She never used a kitchen scale or measuring cups/spoons. She knew how much each ingredient…
