January Food & Travel Update – It’s time to see what new recipes and travel information you might have missed in January. It was a busy month so do check out all of the new content!
In January, a lot of time was spent exploring Mexican & South American cuisine. In this exploration, you have a little of everything. Decadent desserts, warming soup, hot drinks and quick snacks.
Regarding travel, there is a general post on language that can be applied to where ever your vacation plans will be bringing you in 2019. I also have detailed a review of Poseidon Bakery – this is a traditional Greek Bakery that has been serving up Greek delights for almost 100 years. Whether you are traveling to NYC or a local, it is worth a visit to this fabulous bakery.
These recipes are all foods often enjoyed during Christmas and Epiphany celebrations, but really they are all delicious to enjoy any time. They are all Vegetarian and gluten free.
