I have made a few recipes from each of his books over the decades. Now with that said I am inspired to make a few more of his dishes.

Is everyone enjoying the latest spin of relentless repetitive messaging to use, or experiment with, Artificial Intelligence (AI)? As I log onto my laptop now, I am often greeted with "Create Stunning Images with AI". Thank you, but no, all I wanted to do was log in, check and reply to emails and do some leisurely browsing as I sip my coffee or drink my wine depending on the time of day. I've never been a fan of being pushy or pressured, I've never used those tactics on my real estate clients, yet here I find myself consistently on the receiving … (44 comments)
