“…all the charming and beautiful things, from the Song of Songs, to bouillabaisse, and from the nine Beethoven symphonies to the Martini cocktail, have been given to humanity by men who, when the hour came, turned from tap water to something with color in it, and more in it than mere oxygen and hydrogen.”—H.L. Mencken
“One of the very nicest things about life is the way we must regularly stop whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating.”—~Luciano Pavarotti and William Wright, Pavarotti, My Own Story
I have decided to restart this badboy but I have changed the name to “merenda”. “Why?”, you ask?…. There is one glaringly obvious reason….. it’s my name. But what people do not know is that it means “snack” or “picnic” in Italian. Now, anyone who knows me knows I a enjoy cooking, and eating… so the name is appropriate for this blog. I figured that if I am going to post pictures and descriptions about what I have cooked or eaten, I may as well pull all of those random recipes and restaurant meals together in one forum and speak about them in a more organized manner. It only makes sense. Let’s hope I can keep up with this again. lol.
I will be sharing my own recipes, testing out online recipes I find, and discussing healthy choices and things I learn along the way of this journey into my life as a foodie.
I will also be sharing music I love and pretty much whatever strikes me at the mo.
