BIO

Been retired for over 5 years now. I love having the time to make nice meals now, instead of rushing home to get something on the table as quick as possible. Love to read Christian mystery novels, like those by Terri Blackstock and Jerry Jenkins. Love to take day trips to the Cleveland West Side...

Balsamic Vinegar Substitute

Saw this tip on "The Kitchen". When your recipe calls for balsamic vinegar and you're out, mix these ingredients and use instead.
