I have been blogging for nearly 6 years but this week marks the 2nd blogaversary for Ginger and Scotch. I know I am supposed to reflect about the past year and today’s overcast and rainy weather (a rare treat for Dubai!) should be highly conducive for introspection. But my absence from blogging for all of […]

V-day came and went, Here’s the recipe I should have sent. It was an icy cold, blustery night. Snow drifts nearly two feet high covered most of New York City and more snow was still falling.

Sorry for not posting last week. I really do try to get at least one blog post out each week.
