fresh-chile-on-grillHello and welcome to Friday! Another busy week here for me – I was able to sample Hatch Chile goodies (yum!) on top of cooking, eating and writing. It’s been all good…and fun! Hope all of you had a great week, too.

These are some of my favorite food-related finds from all around the web this week.

Cheers – Jeff
