  • With the weather warming-up (it was in the upper 80s where I live last week), I have had iced coffee on my mind. I am not a daily coffee drinker, but I do enjoy the taste AND the smell (LOVE IT)!!! I definitely enjoy the occasional coffee. While coffee is acidic, I do not worry about it because the rest of my diet tends to be very alkaline (click HERE to learn more about acid / alkaline [...]

  • With the holidays coming, we have family visiting from out of town and out of state. We generally have a Christmas Eve buffet for the entire family and then a traditional Christmas ham dinner with folks who are able to attend. But with the hustle and bustle that comes with the season, add in the multiple family obligations, and things get a bit crazy. I’m sure you’re family is a lot like mine in this respect. [...]

If you’re ready to bid farewell to hot, dry weather, but still want to enjoy the delicious flavors from your summer garden, then this Tomato Basil Bread just might be the ticket. A friend of mine sent me this recipe a few weeks ago, and I’ve been waiting for the perfect time to try it. It’s been so hot lately for baking, but [...]

  • Call me lazy, but I love recipes that only require one dish for prepping and cooking! I like to consider myself efficient, because I’m saving my resources. Besides, who really likes washing a mountain of dishes every time you fix something to eat?  Not Me. This recipe actually uses about three dishes for the preparation — bowl, skillet, cutting board. That’s within the acceptable range of dish washing requirements! It also contains all the necessary [...]
