  What does a food blogger do when she has lost her appetite for food?This puts what Grant Achatz went through in a whole new perspective - it is hard to eat when you are not hungry and without a desire to be fed.  Imagine suffering mouth cancer and going through intensive treatments that physically and emotionally weigh you down but still having to work.  And that work is not just your livelihood but other's as well?AND IT IS FOOD........more

The Little Girl Who Wanted to Be a Mommy: A Modern Fairy Tale

Today we celebrated Amy’s birthday even though her birthday was a week ago.  Our family members could coordinate and harmonize their calendars better today than last Sunday.  A celebration can take place anytime plus I firmly ascribe to the ‘birthday zone”  theory.  A birthday is really too special to confine the revelry to just one day....more

Inspiring with Food

We all go through phases with our children's diets. (Heck, I go through phases in my own diet as my tastes change throughout the month. So what can I expect?) But kids are notorious for being "picky," "difficult" and "plain." And truth be told, my kids have thus far been truly amazing little eaters. My first has very openly tasted foods most of her life, leaning towards a less-interested stage when she hit four years of age, but nonetheless, discovering for herself what she truly enjoys and absolutely detests. ...more

I'm so glad you found it useful. Have fun! Cheers.

Too much fatty food might hurt the brain cells that control body weight

Talk about an endless cycle! Brain researchers believe that obese people who eat a diet high in fat (I assume BAD fats) likely have injured the neurons (nerve cells in the brain) that control body weight. The theory might explain why it's hard for obese people to not only lose weight, but also maintain the weight loss. ...more

Getting Healthy

If I had it my way, my diet would consist of fruits, vegetables, chicken (grilled or baked), seafood, water with 3 slices of lemon, and various nuts.  Man, that would be great! But, alas, I have 2 sons and a husband to feed, who enjoy more than the plethora of nuts and berries I like. Recently, I have started to change the foods we eat....more

Coupon Insanity!

My mind has absolutely been blown away! I am sitting here watching “Extreme Couponing” on TLC with my mouth wide open.  These women (and a few men) dedicate their lives… I’m not exaggerating… to collecting coupons and spending close to nothing at the grocery store.  I watched one lady spend 1 cent for $600 worth of food! Are. You. Kidding. Me! So, as I’m watching, I’m online searching the web for those special couponing sites that help you build a strategy when going to the grocery store. My head is already spinning....more
