Food Humor, Recipes, and More!
Ah Food! Food can nourish your body, bring a family together, comfort a broken heart, soothe PMS symptoms, act as a romantic interlude, and can even be used as a weapon. I don't know about you, but this multi-functional culinary item makes my heart sing and my soul glad. If you are like me though, sometimes putting together a menu is about as fun as scrubbing the bathroom floor. Ugh.
What to do? First, look through my recipes so that you can pick and choose items for your menu. Second, while you bake, broil, fry, and marinate, get a giggle as you read my food funnies!
