Worldly Fare: Try the World Morocco

As much as I love getting a Try the World box from somewhere new so I learn all about the cuisine, it's equally exciting to get a box from a country I've visited because it gives me an opportunity to reminisce and try making the cuisine I experienced for myself. I just received my latest delivery, this …

Worldy Fare: Try the World Brazil

One continent I have yet to explore is South America. Brian and I have talked about it numerous times. We'd both love to: climb Machu Picchu experience the Amazon rainforest see Christ the Redeemer explore Moray and the other Inca ruins and much more! It's also the jumping off point for guided journeys to Antarctica; another adventure that's relatively high …

Although our attempt was not successful, the weekend itself was a definite success-- we had a fabulous time! I had (of course) WAY over planned ideas about things to do. Brian …

Worldy Fare: Try the World Portugal

My third Try the World box arrived! After thoroughly enjoying my Holiday box and Thailand box, I was thrilled to open the latest and discover Portugal! Despite having been to Europe numerous times, I didn't make it to Portugal until 2014 as part of my birthday trip and goal to visit 30 countries by the time I turned …

Worldly Fare: Try the World Thailand

The second box in my annual subscription to Try the World arrived, and I love it! This month I received the Thailand box, which includes an awesome assortment of savory, sweet and salty treats. I haven't been to Thailand since 2006, but I distinctly remember my food experience while there. It was the first time …
