Food keeps us alive and healthy.  It gives us the energy to think, work and play.  For most of us, food is more than just sustenance.  It’s a reason to meet friends and family and to celebrate holidays and our individual backgrounds and local environments.  For some of us, food gives us pleasure with smells, tastes and flavors that make living so enjoyable.  This blog is one foodie’s log of the foods and meals that help radiate that joy.
