note: Each of the photographs is a thumbnail image of the original. Just click on the thumbnail to view the full size picture.

  Sonia got into holiday food preparation. Having it come out looking just like the picture in the cookbook was rewarding. ps. It also tasted great!

Old man on the mountain!
