Happy birthday, mom!

Yes, without her, I wouldn't be here, but neither, in a sense, would this blog. (Thank you, mom, for believing in both good food and me.)

She's also an incredibly talented photographer; this piece of hers hangs above our kitchen table at home. We were walking through the market in Las Ramblas, Barcelona when this agile hand darted out, lifting eggs, so rapid and so gentle.

Hi,
1st congrats on your new blog, you are off to a great start. Your mother's picture caught my eye, as I was in Barcelona this past summer in the Las Ramblas market, and saw these wonderful egg stands. If you have a chance please stop by to say hello and check out my post on this cities wonderful foodie temptations (saved under SP TRAVEL). Love to hear your thoughts.
