Tuna looked good at the fish counter the other night, and I hadn’t made this for awhile, so I picked up two. The recipe calls for fresh parsley, and fresh oregano, but I had none and dried worked fine. I was also putting together the […]
With one thing and another, I have done almost no cooking in the last month. First I was on a two-week business trip, then I was back barely six days before taking off on vacation. And with this vacation we have been exclusively in hotels, […]
