Muffulettas

To continue with the Mardi Gras theme, I am going to talk about some of the traditional foods of the season. One of my favorite foods is a muffuletta, pronounced “moo-foo-LET- ta” by the creators or “moo-fuh-LOT-uh” by others. Any way you say it, the sandwich is exquisite.

Twelfth Night

Did you know that the Christmas season officially begins on Christmas Day? As Americans, our society tends to jump from one greeting card holiday to the next. Maybe it’s because of where the holidays fall on the calendar, but Thanksgiving and Christmas kind of blend together to create one holiday season. It could be that… Read More Twelfth Night

Week One-No Carbs

Confession time… I am addicted to coffee, and I love my coffee sweet! For years, since the invention of artificial sweeteners, I have used the “pink stuff,” the “blue stuff,” and for the last decade the the “yellow stuff.” Then, a few months ago, I happened to read that artificial sweeteners don’t help when trying… Read More Week One-No Carbs
