Just simply amazing...

As a food blogger, I was introduced to a wide variety of foods. Some I came to know and love. Some, so much so, that I brought them home and used them in creating recipes for my own family. One that I particularly endorse is almond milk by The Nut House. They make an amazing product.

This company produces made to order quality products, use only organic ingredients, NO PRESERVATIVES, & perfect for lactose intolerant folks. This company has earned my respect. My food photography can be seen on

This simple but elegant dessert is sweet, savory and unforgettable. Just like you.

This drink is a perfect way to start your day!

Lemon and mint water is fresh and invigorating. Lemon juice helps to cleanse and flush toxins from your body and keeps your skin blemish-free. Also, it will help to alkalize the body and control the proliferation of bacteria and viruses. Mint helps settle your stomach and aids in digestion. Drink it first thing in the morning about 30 minutes before breakfast to help your body get the most energy and nutrients from the food you eat.
