  1. Hi Linda,
    You post such lovely and consistently well written pieces on Open Salon, I thought I’d come on over and take a gander at your site.

    Great stuff.
    I’m still learning the craft — got a little site on Blogger, just playing with it to season the pan. (I didn’t start off with the intent of blogging about food — but have drifted that way since joining OS, with all those Kitchen Challenges.

    • Vivian, thank you so much for coming by! As you can see, this is mainly my OS food posts cross-posted, recently experimenting with a few extra little posts. Glad to see your recent SKC and other posts, and hope to see more of them! Linda
