What’s on the menu today, Gutsy?

This past week, Marnina and I went on a Turkish kick.  We literally ate and prepared all things Turkish for lunch and dinner.  Marnina’s mother recently bought and sent us a signed copy of The Ottoman Turk and the Pretty Jewish Girl.

Marnina and I just wrote a guest blogpost for Grilling with Rich about the health benefits of grilling for the general population, as well as for people with IBD.
