In Europe, it’s the savory pumpkin recipes that seem to attract top billing.  Many Europeans find it odd that Americans and ot…

Pinterest Addiction?

Pinterest Addiction?

Do you have a Pinterest Addiction?
If you have joined Pinterest, you may have acquired a Pinterest addiction.  It’s easy to do and happens to the best of us.  You may become a Pinterest addict without realizing it.  Or realize it but find it impossible to overcome.

My son recently shared a pin with me with the featured image.  He thought I’d appreciate the humor, which of course I did.  Yet, it also made me wonder whether I do have a Pinterest addiction? Or whether at least this is the perception I give to others?

I therefore developed the below foolproof test to determine if you have a…

Top 5 Saffron Recipes

Top 5 Saffron Recipes

What makes saffron so special?
A couple months ago I announced the creation of a new board called Saffron Recipes! on Pinterest.
