I’m not a doctor, nor am I a dietitian or a nutritionist . . . and I don’t play one on TV either. What I am, however, is a woman who has reached the half-century point in her life (not without a few bumps and bruises along the way) who is learning to take better […]
I am perfectly fine with feeding my body. After all, the foods that I ingest are the ones which provide the nourishment my body needs. However, my soul craves feeding, as well. Do for yourself; do the things that you love, that make you feel good. Look forward to the feeding of your soul just […]
While this wouldn’t be my choice for a last meal (although mine would likely be just as humble), this dynamic duo is a perennial favorite … breakfast, lunch or dinner. Which meal would you choose to be your last?

While I’m sure there will be those who may disagree with this simplistic notion, how often do you find someone cooking for their enemies? Cooking soothes and comforts […]
While I can’t view chocolate as some manner of scientific marvel, it has to be said that chocolate makes people happy. No, really. Chocolate releases phenylethylamine, which has been known to cause changes in blood sugar levels, hence the feeling of exhilaration. Yet another chemical, theobromine, has been said to cause relation, both physically and […]

A cheeseburger is a cheeseburger. There’s no mistaking it for pizza, steak or lobster tail. This unambiguous nature is known far and wide. Take a burger, slap a piece of cheese on top and—voila!—instant cheeseburger. Everyone, and I mean everyone, knows what a cheeseburger is; its reputation precedes it. Cheeseburgers are loved by all—man, woman, […]
