Submitted by on July 19, 2010 – 5:36 amOne Comment

I am one of those women who loves to cook. But truthfully, I love to cook mostly because I love to eat. The cooking part is just the means to the delicious end.

Here are some of my favorite dishes that I’ve shared here on the Tiki Tiki this past year and also some of my favorite stories to go with them.
