It seems singles, couples, parents and assorted others have the same or similar issues when it comes to eating at home. They are either too busy to cook or simply hate to cook. They have amazingly high tech kitchens that get no play (except the microwave). I live in a building of singles and child-less…

Where Is The Love?
When you spend a glorious Southern California day in November running errands, standing in line and being royally pissed off by people; there is only one thing left to do….EAT.

If that isn’t enough, I have a lemon apricot tart cooling on the kitchen counter….
