I've had the great good fortune of living abroad for more than a decade. The traditions, comfort and memories of home are things I cherish and carry with me on my travels. What I wasn't expecting was that other cultures and flavors would seep into my own traditions and favorites and influence a new batch of classics. Heres to evolving traditions and new memories!
