Bon Vivant – a person having cultivated, refined, and sociable tastes especially with respect to food and drink. Literally, a person who is good at living. This is me. Well… this was me before entering into the world of bills and responsibilities.

Fortunately, a lack of funds has never been an excuse for second-rate. Now I am simply learning how to satisfy my champagne tastes on a beer budget… well, malt liquor budget. So join me, along with a few of my fancy friends, as we cook, bake, sew and DIY our way back to the lavish luxury which we love so much.

“I have the simplest tastes. I am always satisfied with the best.”
