FOOD

                Happy New Yeeeaar!!!           My first post this year it’s about food… “ranting” about food. I think it’s a good way to start the year. Reassessing what is what and setting new goals.. ’cause that is what you have to do in January…every January. This being a food blog, the question remains: what…

Breakfast Omelette Pie

  Christmas is around the corner y’all and I’ve been slacking in the cooking department lately… I’ve eaten so many times at Viet Cuisine these days that I’m almost sore they don’t offer a weekly pass to its loyal customers, like myself.
