  • You are WHERE????? So, when we were in Philadelphia last the big question was Is “Jim’s Philly Cheesesteak or Pat’s Philly Cheesesteak better? They’re like close to one another in proximity. So, we walked over and one night sampled one then a few nights later the other one. Ah, heck I don’t know, they were both scrumptious. Some food critic I’d make, NOT! Cheryl

    • Hi Cheryl! We’ve been on vacation in the south of France for the last two weeks…Ooh La La! Collecting a lot of new recipes for the blog!
