Just because it’s summertime doesn’t mean you should take a break from healthy eating! Summers mean more picnics, ballgames and festivals full of tempting (but less than healthful) foods. But you can have your ice cream, hot dogs and fried Oreos — in moderation — by following these suggestions. Eat Sweets in Small Portions Sweets and fried foods are fine, in small portions. Use this as an opportunity to show kids how to form a healthy relationship with food. Denying the “good stuff” can lead to poor, unhealthy food choices down the road. So a little treat here and there won’t do any harm. Keep Them Active If your kids indulge in a funnel cake or waffle and ice cream sundae once in a while, schedule more activities that help them burn off those extra calories. Also, encourage kids to share the treats so everyone gets a taste but no one overindulges. Be a Good Role Model Be a good role model. Eat healthier foods—and healthier versions of the foods everyone loves. For example, if …
Pineapple Upside Down Cake was invented back in 1956 by Marge Gillicutty in Illinois. She was attempting to make a pineapple cake when all the pineapple sunk to the bottom. Oh was Marge pissed. Then it turned out everyone at the church social loved it. Boom! Pineapple Upside Down Cake was invented. I’m guessing.
I like to consider Laverne DeFazio a good friend of mine. I grew up watching her and I thought she was hilarious with her timing and physical comedy.
Life is about experiences and making good friends for life. You’ll make lots of friends along the way but only about a handful you’ll actually really like. I like Vikki. A lot.
I like balance in life. Not my personal life in particular. My life is wacked beyond belief without a chance of ever recuperating. Kinda like it that way though. This tart has the perfect balance of chocolate and peanut butter and my oh so favorite thing. That ingredient that you can’t put your finger on it but if it wasn’t there the tart wouldn’t taste the same. I love it when that happens. That’s where the Jell-O Butterscotch Pudding Mix comes into play. That’s what gives this tart the flavor of a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. It does make me feel like I’m getting closer to Reese’s formula. Note to my readers: If I end up dead investigate Hershey’s or my coworkers. I’m actually being dead serious about this. At least I think it tastes like a Reese’s and taste is all perspective. For example, you think Starbucks is good coffee. We all know it’s shit but you’ve been conditioned to like it. You’re so unique! The unfortunate thing about Starbucks is you’re forced to …
If you don’t like caramel why bother living? I’ve only met one person in my life that doesn’t like caramel and honestly, I really don’t know why he bothers going on with life. Caramel would be the only good thing he’s got. Sad but true.
If you have been following me here in New York, you’ve noticed I wave at dogs and give children the finger. Which one day is bound to get my ass royally kicked. You’re also a baker and probably collect cookbooks like myself.
