To begin this article, I must say that I am, and always have been, a seafood fanatic. When I was very young my favorite dish was “Oysters Rockefeller” and to this day I crave seafood on a minutely basis. Lobster, crab, scallops, shrimp, fatty tuna, sea urchin, oh my! Aside from my cat (Shrimpy) seafood is my best friend.
I’m a big foodie and avid cook as many of you blog followers know, and of all foods I have to say BBQ is my absolute favorite.

The time has come for my baby – Penelope – to receive an engine rebuild, which is quite exciting.

The time has finally come: Ford unveiled their awesome new police car, which sports a variety of features including increased power, better safety ratings, cool electronics and an eco-friendly engine.
