This website is all about food. Learn how to enjoy food, cooking & entertaining. It’s not about fancy or complicated. It’s about good food. Real food. There will always be a featured drink or recipe of the month. Most of the recipes are original with a few exceptions and adjustments.

There is nothing like a fresh brewed cup of quality coffee. There is nothing like a smooth glass of red wine. And yes…… you can eat potatoes. Potatoes are real food.

“Meals will never be good quality if the ingredients are not good quality.”
