"Food for me was a connecting link to my grandmother, to my childhood, to my past. And what I found out is that for everybody, food is a connector to their roots, to their past in different ways. It gives you security; it gives you a profile of who you are, where you come from." - Lidia Matticchio Bastianich
I love gardening. but my kitchen garden is as whimsical as I am. I love to throw beans that I find around my kitchen and see how they turn up. Some beans like these Christmas Beans taste amazingly delicious when they are freshly picked.
