Comments, Random, always about food though.
Comentarios, raro, pero siempre de comida.
A Tuna Tale- A Short Story
It all started on one of those rainy, humid mornings in Panama. There were protests on the streets against some new law that, as usual, hurt more than it helped.
Cocinerita Moves to Portland!
Two weeks ago I was driving across the country from coast to coast with J.Â It was quite the experience and not exactly what I was expecting, but in a good way! What was I expecting? – Fast Food only options on the road. – Terrible rest-stops. – Scary truck drivers owning the road. – […]
