- NYC- my favorite as your can eat food from any country in the world!
- New Orleans, I agree the food here is special and so unique to New Orleans
- Las Vegas- it has a good culinary school in town!
- LA- have been to a few good places in LA but I find it a bit for posers, just teasing
- San Francisco the article states especially Asian food, vietnamese, and Chinese. The China Town in San Francisco is great and the great thing about this city is after eating, walk a few hills and you burn of all the food!
- Chicago, I love Rush Street.
- I WANT TO ADD CHARLOTTE NC it has wonderful places of a very high caliber and especially around South Park Mall area.

- Make the dough and let it sit for 1 hr
- Add yogurt to the dough to make it softer
- Use a very flat dosa pan to cook them
- Press down the sides and turn it as cooking to trap air inside to make them puff up
- Roll thinly as it puffs up better
- Try and Try again, folks from North Indian and Pakistan make these everyday, practice makes perfect.

A Finnish study with 2, 560 men aged between 42-62 followed for an average of 16 years. Found that those who did moderate to intense activity for 30 min per day had 50% less chance of developing cancer.
Another great reason to get 30 min of activity every day.
I personally like to go for a walk everyday and do stretching while playing with Jasmine on the floor, and recently she is starting to dance, so I will be dancing with her!

I made homemade mac and cheese today with broccoli, crab meat (from yesterdays crab cakes) and mixed veggies. With an onion and cheddar cheese sauce yummy. Jasmine ate well, after I stopped trying to feed her and looked away, she feed herself independent little baba!
