  • Avoid the food rut by tweaking everyday recipes

    Boredom. Yes, the dreaded B-word.

    We all seem to hear it enough as it is, especially when our children are out of school for the summer. Boredom is the ultimate test of our character. We all want to be satiated with enjoyment. We want fun and we want new experiences. Let’s face it, boredom can set in at anytime and it can last a long time.
