(1)
August 8, 2016 • Cooking

Would you believe it if someone told you they were going to make a truly delicious dish out of an eggplant, a potato, a tomato, and some spices? I didn’t, when my partner told me that some six years or so ago. My adoring lips formed words along the lines of, “That’s wonderful, sweetie!” while… Read More ›
