Started using WHI (We Heart It). Know what you're thinking. There's Pinterest, Scoop.it, StumbleUpon, etc. Why create another set of collections? Why? Because they share really good stuff on WHI that is different from my findings elsewhere on the web and because it's so easy to click that little “heart” button on the images. I have a Tumblr blog and lots of folks on Tumblr use it. That's how I found the site.
This lovely quote by Lord Byron is my 100th “heart”. ♥
Did you know cinnamon is the spice that launched a thousand ships? It's true! From the Far East to the West! This eye-opening intense read will tell you so much more you did not know about this wonderful cooking ingredient.
The above referenced article is a fascinating read, but if that doesn't satisfy your desire for knowledge about this marvelous exotic spice and you want to know more, below are some additional links of interest.
So not only was he a genius when it came to composing music, he was also smart when it came to knowing about comfort food.
January is National Soup Month and in other months of the year we celebrate days for various types of soups and chowders. Yes it's September. But why wait until the winter months when you can start enjoying warm comforting soups in the fall?
Do you love fruits? Do you love veggies? Do you love fruits and veggies? Do you get even more excited when you find out the fruits and veggies you love are loaded with health benefits too? Like you really didn't need to be persuaded to eat them. But now you have a justification for enjoying them! YAY!! It takes so little to make me happy. :)
Joined the BlogBourne blogging community at the request of a friend and stumbled across a gold mine! One of the bloggers at this site supplies detailed dietary and nutritional information about several fruits and vegetables. Below is a sample listing. There are more.
Using a free account at a site called OverBlog. It’s sort of like Tumblr or Pinterest, in that it’s really easy to share links, photos, etc. and write your own content. My posts date back to April 2015 and the last time there was any activity was June 2016. Creating a blog was easy and the site does have visual appeal. However, my site does not get much traffic, so I don't spend a lot of time there.
Sharing a quick list of the most recent posts below and also some embedded content. This blog has its usefulness in that it creates a space on the Internet for a collection of random things that are of interest to me, e.g. news about world affairs which become history reference markers, food and drink, entertainment, etc.
Do you use OverBlog? Would be interested in knowing your experience. Feel free to comment and share a link.

They have rainbow sushi rolls on the list! :)
American TV personality Martha Stewart is the most famous housekeeper / homemaker in the world. That's what I thought until when mentioning her name in a casual discussion, the person who was not from America said they didn't know her. In case the reader does not know - Ms. Stewart's official Google Plus business page puts her occupation as “Businesswoman”. That is an inadequate or insufficient description. It should say “Phenomenal Businesswoman par Excellence”. Watched one of her shows one time and she was actually teaching her audience how to clean a dirty greasy frying pan! This woman took the mundane chores of housekeeping and homemaking on a Star Trek journey and boldly went places no woman had ever gone before. To the bank!!!
Martha Stewart's net worth at one time was reported at $300 million, per celebritynetworth.com. (Figured that must be an old report. So fished some more.)
A 2011 article published by abcnews.go.com, reported that Forbes.com reported her net worth at $638 million. (That's probably understated too, as of 2015.)
Anyway, getting to my real point - If you're not into baking from scratch like Martha Stewart, are you aware of the wonderful things that can be done with a cake mix? Isabelle Esteves shares her tips on how to enhance a basic cake mix.
Ms. Stewart teaches you how to make all sorts of wonderful culinary delights on from scratch on her Martha Bakes TV series. But why do that when the family and friends chowing down on my upside down cake won't even notice the difference? Stewart versus Esteves? I'm in the Esteves corner. ♥

Skip the discussion and make an arbitrary decision based on you palate's preferences. No matter because the salmon recipes links supplied via this blog post can probably be modified and trout can be used as a substitute. When experimenting, eating and enjoying food, one must learn to be flexible. :)
Chocolate is the ultimate comfort food. It is definitely not on the list of things one can not Google. You never have any problems finding stuff about chocolate. People love to celebrate it and make up national days for it. They tout all its health benefits, as if one needs an excuse to eat it.
Whether you're terrified because you're new to the whole holiday entertaining family and friends tradition and never cooked a meal for anybody OR you're an experienced host or hostess but need some new recipes idea and/or need to make changes to the feast because of the dietary restrictions or requirements of some of those invited to partake, you might find this recipe collection invaluable.
Also, did you know that Italy is a country of choice for some expatriates. I did not know that. I thought all expatriates moved to The Bahamas. Of course, in my narrow-minded way of thinking, I was only thinking that it was Americans who were choosing to expatriate. There are people who live in other countries who choose to leave their homelands too. Shocking, I know! You’d think it’s was only the Americans who would become disgruntled. We’re such big babies. We complain about everything and never count our blessings. Some of US. Not all. I’m not considering expatriation and don’t think I ever will. I don’t care what Rick Steves says, he is not gonna make a convert out of me!!! But since Italy invented pizza*, I think it reasonable to place this country on a list of “Possible Countries to Live In as an Expat and/or At Least Go On Vacation There”.
