A year ago I was staring into the abyss. Now I am staring out over the Central Valley. Funny where life can take you. While skating the edge of oblivion in a drunken haze, this strange wonderful man asked me a simple question: Would you like to go get some pie? Really? That’s all it takes? Pie? Yes, pie.

On that fateful night, I babbled away and probably spilled more than Cosmo would deem acceptable. And I talked about cooking. Specifically my philosophy that you should never trust a woman who doesn’t know how to cook. A short time later, he asked me another question: Would you like to come to Costa Rica with me? Sure. Can I bring my kitchen?

Every Day an Adventure, Every Meal a Feast

I don't have as many adventures as I used to, though I still believe that Every Day IS an Adventure, especially where I live, in this remote village in the south of Costa Rica, the Osa Peninsula.
