    6 years ago

    I don't know how many of you watch Top Chef. I do, pretty much every episode of the show. The last one was one of my favorite ones, because it was all recorded in my home city, Seattle. With a cruise taken to Alaska, it reminded me of the cruise we took with my husband, Alaska Cruise Review.
