FWF's Views

She eats. He eats. Together or alone, our bodies need food.

How few of us are not conflicted about food. The pleasures of mouth, nose, belly, mind and emotions, but fear of fatness, scolding or urging by family, and more baggage than any of us should carry all are on the plate and in the wrapper as well.

This site is for how to make and enjoy food...and how to be friendly with it. We don't offer any guilt or shame or fear. Food should be your friend.
