CUCUMBER & SALMON BITES

CUCUMBER & SALMON BITES

Anyone who knows me knows I hate cucumbers. You will rarely find a recipe of mine that includes it. I won’t even try to make something with cucumbers. So how did this come about? My friends and I had a ladies luncheon and one of […]

PASTA VONGOLE

GREEN JUICE

GREEN JUICE

  I recently started juicing and this is my favourite. I hate cucumbers and it seems every green juice on the market has this gag-worthy vegetable in it. Yes, I know my repulsion to cucumbers is bordering crazy since I tell everyone I’m allergic to […]

CHICKEN SOUP

CHICKEN SOUP

  I was a big soda drinker a few years back. I sadly admit I was drinking at least one diet soda a day. Back then, I thought if it were calorie-free or sugar-free then it was fine. I now know better and if I’m […]
