Hello from the other side!

There's absolutely nothing good about long-haul flights...unless you're living it up in first or business class. For the rest of us mere mortals, it means enduring countless hours of cramped seating in the cattle barn that is economy.

Keep your eyes on the pies!

There's just something about a perfectly cooked pie that gets me feeling weak at the knees.
