Make Water Yummier in Summer

Hydrating is easier done, for most of us, when drinking something with a little flavor. Water is fine, yeah, sure, but many folks are trying their best to come off of soda, juice, or sweet tea addictions. Or those drinks that carry yucky chemicals that we're now finding can cause cancer. And that were billed as healthy alternatives for sugar for so long. Fabulous. So yes, water is good, but if you'd like a little something extra, this is an inexpensive, quick, easy, and alkalizing (amazing for your body) way to dress up that water that you should be sipping on all day long as the sun beats down on you....more

Fried Calamari Salad with Caperberris and Lemon Aioli

Looking back on my life, I recognize the most effective heart-felt lessons have been extremely painful to learn.Often we hope and pray for smooth sailing;–for health, wealth, and loving relationships. We claim to be teachable in the good times, but it’s the harrowing moments that force us to stare our character in the face, and make adjustments. Experience: that most brutal of teachers. But you learn, my God do you learn. ~C.S. Lewis...more
