The 411 on Coffee

This should be interesting.  In full disclosure I must let you know that– I’m a tea kind of gal.  I’ll open with that, and aim to be as unbiased as possible.  My first contact with coffee was, of course, as …

Butter

It was Julia.  Julia Child, who introduced me to butter.  Well maybe not, it was my mom who first asked me to whip butter into some cake mix or somethin’.  See?…I can’t even remember.  But it was Julia who first painted …
