  • Healthy changes can be made to most recipes

    Recently we have seen and heard a lot about Paula Deen and her diagnosis of Type II Diabetes. 

    People, mainly media, are so quick to criticize when we take a misstep, but remember what everyone was saying about Ms. Deen prior to her recent admission.  They were singing her praises. She does happen to have very good recipes, however, we can make changes.

    We all have choices in life and we can make our own choice as to how and what we eat.

  • Cheesecake makes tasty use of lemons, limes

    It’s official, I am now old because I have just hit the age of Medicare. Funny though, it doesn’t bother me, and I don’t feel that old.

    Two years ago, I almost missed this important milestone. But now I am walking more than a mile every day and doing Zumba at least once a week, and I feel fantastic. Besides, I have five grandchildren to keep up with, so I should keep active.
