Brent and I have been blessed enough to be able to house an intern that is in Bozeman for two weeks. She is here along with four others although they will be here till then end of July.

Cast Iron Breadsticks

I had another great evening of cooking some firsts! They turned out great. Brent and I have some good friends moving away in about a week, so we had them over for probably one last meal. Although I will still see them several times in the next few days, they need to pack.… Read the rest

While living in family and graduate housing at MSU, we would regularly get together for an international cuisine night.
