    The Ginger Experience

    I really like gari, the pickled ginger that is usually served with sushi. Good quality gari can be a little expensive, so I decided to give making my own a try. I've made pickles before, so I didn't think it would be too difficult. As it turns out, it was crazy easy to do. The...

    Love is too strong a word.

    So I will say I like cooking and baking. I made some Duncan Hines fudge brownies this afternoon as a matter of fact. I'm good at making a few things, like scrambled eggs. (I like adding 1% milk instead of water to give the eggs just a little more body) I love cooking a nice NY...
