Homemade Ricotta

Place of Origin: Sicily, Italy By Julianne Keskey I’ve always loved the excitement (and sometimes the challenge) of making things from scratch that you would normally just toss into your cart at the grocery store.

Harissa: Where The Virgin Mary is Watching Over Lebanon – Keep Calm and Wander

Lebanon is a predominantly Muslim country but it is the most open-minded muslim country I’ve ever been to. Beirut, as a capital, is littered with Christian churches and mosques. People of two different faiths live in harmony. It’s a city where I didn’t feel like I have to watch out what I do. I never had that feeling of being paranoid. Sorry Dubai or Abu Dhabi but you still make me paranoid everything I go there (8 times in the…

Taking a Holiday in Gay Malta – Gay Star News

For many in Europe, Malta has a reputation for being a rather genteel holiday destination for older holidaymakers.

Most holidaymakers head for Valletta, the capital city. It’s also a major harbor which plays host to cruise ships throughout the year. Malta is actually three islands. Malta…
