2014 is over and the first week of the new year is coming to an end.
I would take the chance to greet each and everyone who visits my blog.
This is not a “New Year, New Me” post with a list of resolutions that doomed to be forgotten the next day, week, or month. The first post of the year is about the fails of 2014 I have encountered behind the scenes. Only one failed post made it to the published list for a reason, but the rest are still stored in my folders. Until now!
The Failed Recipes of 2014
A recipe requires the coherence of many elements. Getting orgasmic results from a recipe is the fruit of love, patience, care and quality ingredients. Sometimes you cook something out of the need to eat. And regardless of the quality, it will be something good to chew on and fill your tummy with but never repeat.

What’s wonderful is sharing this only table with people you might meet there. This happened in front of us. The 2 groups of 4 left with a wide smile on their faces.
After a talk with the chef and owner about the type of business he’s running and about the food, its freshness, quality and flavors, he helped us choose some good items from the generous menu.
