A couple of years ago I had brunch with a friend on Newbury Street. I’m a big proponent of trying new things when dining out because the hope is that the chef knows the perfect preparation and that it’s something I can try to recreate on my own. I tried Shakshuka, also spelled shakshouka at […]
When we talk about healthy lifestyles we sometimes forget that there are aspects that are a luxury, while some things may be argued for as an investment, other things may also be described as a luxury.
