Named for things that please me (“me gusta” in Spanish) and rhymes with balabusta (Yiddish for “good homemaker”).

Welcome to my blog

Hello from Mary Ellen!

It is mostly about one of life’s great pleasures – eating well –  and travel experiences, particularly those involved with markets and dining.  Occasionally there will be little tips, such  as freezing pesto base (sans cheese) in tube shapes to facilitate cutting off
individual portions in the future. “You should put things like that in your blog”,  said one friend.

And, I’ll share some observations along the way. For example, what’s  the difference between a Minnesota Fish Boil and La Truite du Lac Pochee’, Garni au Beurre Fondu? The answer: Nothing and it is  fabulous.

Buon appetito!
