So perhaps that was the aforementioned hiatus I was supposedly taking. Wowzers, it's been a while since we had a catch up around here - but boy have I missed this place. I'm back now - ready with reviews, recipes and ranting but above all, ready to welcome festivities after what, personally, has been a year filled with disappointment. And that, my friends, begins today. Happy Diwali to those celebrating...as for the rest of ya, Happy Diwali nonetheless ;) Thanks for sticking with me.
