[Do you have any idea how scary it was to snap a closeup of this alligator?!

Flash in the Pan: Spicy Roasted Seeds

[Sometimes, you just want to eat something now. I’ve decided to offer a mini-post every once in a while, for a dish that comes together incredibly quickly or else is so easy to make that no recipe is required. Here’s today’s “Flash in the Pan.” (For other FitP recipes, see “Categories” at right).]

How I Spent My Florida Vacation, Part I

[Sorry this is a long post. . . feel free to chop it up into manageable segments, like a honkin’ big Florida grapefruit.]
