Raised by missionary parents and now on a missions program with my husband, I've been all over Europe, though not to every country, yet! Its been fun figuring out what I can do with the native groceries...once I've figured out what they all are:) Fortunately they don't differ too much throughout Europe. <a href="http://s292.photobucket.com/albums/mm29/pixyolive/?action=view¤t=121036.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i292.photobucket.com/albums/mm29/pixyolive/121036.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> Hubby in Troyes, Fr..an enchanting town! I am fascinated by each culture's food traditions. I always thought I was half-way brave when it came to trying out different dishes until I saw an old "Bizarre Foods - Phillippines". Wow. I haven't posted many recipes because I realised I don't measure out everything the same way each time and so don't have many recipes that are precise enough to post. I sure enjoy trying all yours! <a href="http://s292.photobucket.com/albums/mm29/pixyolive/?action=view¤t=180153.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i292.photobucket.com/albums/mm29/pixyolive/180153.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> My husband I've been able to find EVERYthing I need here on Zaar. Where I live now, I can hardly get anything, so I have to make everything from scratch.
