Well, not for my mom. Doesn't go well with my dad's other health issues, but he seems to be improving.

I'm still waiting to try it, because it's at my parents' house, and they've been sick. Hopefully soon!

Interestingly, we've been using a toaster oven ourselves, of late.  I lightning strike fried the glow plug in our regular oven, and the toaster oven was supposed to be a fill-in until it was replaced.

Boy oh boy, have those things evolved since they were introduced.  Other than size restrictions, there's nothing you can do in a regular stove that they won't handle.  I've even been baking bread in mine.

Good luck with it, Melissa. I think you're going to fall in love.

I'm coming up on my 100th entry, and my parents gave me a toaster oven for Christmas that can function as an oven and an air fryer, so that will open up whole new worlds.

Happy New Year Melissa and Historic Foodie, 

I posted a lovely fresh cod fish dip in Spain and even though it is Venetian, I prepared it in Spain using fresh cod verses salt cod  ..  within the last few days.

Will be in Italy from the 17th - 23rd.

So, when I return -- I shall visit ..

Best of all,  Thank you for reviving the thread and all my best wishes.

I'm bumping this, because we have several new members who might like to share their culinary travels.

Since the last time, I have "visited" all the countries of the old Persian Empire. And, thanks to my new friend Susan, I've revisited Turkey---but this time to the way everyday housewives cook, rather than the palace food of the Ottoman's.  

Haven't expanded my exposure to Latin America, as intended, but, hopefully, that will happen this year.

Within the last two weekends, I posted the following light récipes:

1) ITALY -  Zabaglione Vin Santo -  a renowned dessert with a sweet Marsala, or Vin Santo.

2) MIDDLE EAST -  Orange, Almond Couscous Salad which is absolutely lovely .. 

3) FRANCE -  Jacques Pepin and Julia Child´s  French Potato Salad .. An amazing versión of an age old salad .. 

Have a lovely summer Melissa.  Hope all is well ..

For somebody who professes to be a poor cook and unadventurous you're doing one heck of a job, Melissa.  And I'm glad to see you reviving this thread.

Of course, it's a little disappointing that other members haven't similarly shared their culinary travels.  I had high hopes when you started this.  But, what can you do?

On the other hand, after thinking about it for a number of years, I started researching Persian food. Just the act of writing it down as a goal finally prompted me to get on that horse.  So, for me, personally, something good certainly resulted.

You rock, girl!

I just realized- does making my homemade condensed-milk ice cream in ube flavor count as Philippine cooking? It's an ingredient in halo-halo, IIRC.

Wow .. Lovely idea for a thread ..

I would have to write a book on my journies across the globe and my profound love  of the Mediterranean .. 

To start off in Europe, I have been to almost every capital city in all the autonomous regions or provinces of  France, Greece ( out of 2.000 Islands, I have been to nearly 50 ),  Italy, Portugal and Spain ..   

I have been to Romania, Sweden,  Norway,  Denmark,  Holland, The Czek Republic,  Belgium,  Scotland,  London, England ( Cambridge and Oxford),   Switzerland,  Austria,  Germany,        
Turkey,  Buda and Pest, Hungary ..   

I lived in Italy 5 years,  Spain 25 years so of course I have prepared uncountable dishes from the two ..


I spent 1 year and  5 months in Marseille and have travelled through most of the autonomous regions ..  

Many of my récipes are on FOTW with an introduction  and all have been prepared by me over the years ..  

I studied in both Montreal from age new born to 14,  and  then went to High School and  University in Manhattan. 

I have never lived any where else in North America however, have travelled through New England, Wash D.C.   and Virginia and North Carolina ..  San  Francisco is most memorable ..  

Mexico,  South America as well and numerous  Caribe Islands,  Costa Rica, and  Panama .. 

Asia:  Hong Kong and Tokyo and Kyoto  ..  

Africa:  Morocco ..    ( it is quite close to Cadiz,  Andalusia )

Nice global-hopping, Melissa.

I'd like to do more exploring of Latin America. And Persia is on my list for sure, in the coming year. After that? Well, we'll see.
