Such power you yield… 🙂 Reply shakira August 22, 2010 at 6:42 am How exactly is spaghetti exotic? You mean she never knew what falafel and tabouli and other actual good food is? Reply Richard Davies October 25, 2010 at 6:00 pm One of my Aunts still thinks spaghetti is slightly off-beat food. When one of my cousins had to move back home for a time they complained about how bland my Aunt’s cooking was after years of doing their own.

There was a great recipe for pancakes in it. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
