What is burrata cheese?

Burrata is a mild and versatile cheese, an Italian milk cow cheese, made from mozzarella and cream. The outer shell is solid mozzarella, while the inside contains a soft-textured stracciatella and cream. In the directions, we mash it open with a fork or spoon for serving.

A welcome through travel

There are a million ways to take the ordinary things you do and make them hospitable moments. After all, hospitality means “welcoming others,” and we can do that anywhere, even in the midst of our busyness, in our home life, and our travels.

Orion Viking ship in Bermuda

Having recently returned from being out of the country, we met lovely friends on the ship that we will keep in touch with. It reminds me of this quote that is very popular, but so true:

“Travel changes you. As you move through this life and this world you change things slightly, you leave marks behind, however small. And in return, life – and travel – leaves marks on you. Most of the time, those marks – on your body or on your heart – are beautiful.”― Anthony Bourdain
