Mike and I have a friend here in Kuwait who doesn’t like to eat. I know what you’re thinking. Wait…what?! Explain please, because I just don’t understand. Yup, it’s true, he doesn’t like to eat, toddler-style. As in, I guess I’ll eat if I have to, but only when I really feel like it, and

Are you one of those people who can drink coffee any time of day?  Mike likes to joke that I drink coffee instead of warm milk at night to help me sleep…and while that isn’t exactly true, it is true that coffee doesn’t keep me awake.  I joke that it’s because every time he and

We are kindred souls, Dear Reader, you and I.  We both like good food.  No scratch that, great food.  Cooking it, eating it, even just looking at it.   I’m willing to guess you probably like coffee too…I know I do.  (Or if not, you probably know someone who does?)  It’s one of those things that
