Four Recipes to Münster, Germany

Have you been to Münster, Germany? After doing some research about Münster it is certainly on my list of places I would love to visit because of it's long rich history and it has embraced the 21st century with so much community zeal to promote a green, environmental friendly city. With superb planning they have raised the bar in creating a "green" city while preserving their history. This video is by far the best one available that shows all aspects of Münster - past,now and the future. The video was so interesting and pleasant to watch that I watched it twice and shared it with my friends.

The Town of Torrington, CT

We are going to stop for a little while in Torrington, CT because my Lemon Recipe first went here in 2011. What you will like about visiting Torrington is the interesting history. The Warner Theater will capture your attention and very quickly you will learn that it opened on August 19, 1931 as part of the Warner Bros. chain of movie theaters. It is ranked as #1 tourist attraction for Torrington and it is individually listed on the National Register of Historic Places (photo source Wikipedia)
Enjoy this short video tour of the restoration work of the Warner Theater
The Warner Theater is part of the 56-acre Downtown Torrington Historic District where you can take a walking tour of 21 properties. I am very happy our Recipe Tour took us to this interesting town in Connecticut.
