Bonne Femme Rocks!

I’ve had The Bonne Femme Cookbook checked out from the library for a few weeks, and my own copy arrived from the bookstore just this morning 🙂 🙂 🙂 It’s a lovely book, and I anticipate using it a lot. I’ve already tried out her Silky and Light Potato Soup recipe, and although I’ve made many similar recipes over the years, I think that her version is one of the very best. And now that I’m not worried about getting a bit of “cooking wear” on the book, I’ll be trying out many more. Not that there’s a dearth of French cookbooks in this house LOL – but her recipes look to be well written and clearly defined.

And yes, I share your reluctance to take the word of anyone who hasn’t actually used a cookbook that they’re recommending, although I do welcome comments about the lay-out and the types of topics covered in the book, of course. And there’s always the proviso that while I have …

Chinese Study Shows Lower Rates Of Cancer

In 1983, the study designed by Dr. Campbell, and Dr. Chen used the cancer information from the earlier survey, and the types of cancer deaths reported earlier were verified in commune and county hospital records. A trained pool of workers was able to test 13,000 subjects in 65 random counties in rural areas of the country. Because the people ate food grown in their immediate area and weren’t mobile, scientists could analyze what they ate. The scientists could then compare diet with cancer mortality.

What the scientists discovered was dramatic, statistically significant data. For example, the commune with the highest serum cholesterol levels had 473 times as many women dying from esophageal cancer as had the communes with the lowest serum cholesterol levels. There were equally wide ranges among males studied.

Chinese who consumed more protein had a higher mortality from cancer of the stomach and esophagus. They also had greater incidences of cancer of the lung, the colon, and the rectum, and moe leukemia than those

Mechanical Mac Hard Drive Recovery

The fast paced technological world we live in has made Mac and Macbook computers a major part of our lives. In almost every area of people’s lives, there is an influence of Apple technology. People all across the world now have access to the Iphone and IPads that they use for various functions.

Cooking With Tasty Sauces

Jean-Georges Vongerichten, chef at Restaurant Lafayette in New York, offers a menu with a special section devoted to dishes intensified with these flavorful oils and perfumed broths. His new book, Simple Cuisine (Simon and Schuster, New York, 1990), details these techniques. “All of the recipes can be completed in half an hour,” says Vongerichten. “They don’t require that you spend 20 hours making a veal stock.”

Still, many contemporary chefs take a hard line on stocks. “There are some things you can’t take shortcuts on,” says Emeril Lagasse of Emeril’s in New Orleans. “We respect the stockpot. Good stocks are the basis for good sauce..”

Lagasse’s new restaurant uses 50-60 gallons of stock a day. Chicken, fish, wild mushroom and asparagus are among the varieties. His stocks find their way into vinaigrettes and are blended into roasted-vegetable sauces.

Another cooked chunky sauce, chutney, is a favorite with Lagasse. “Chutneys have a very Southern feel to them – very powerful in flavor. I like to pair chutneys with

Chocolate And PB Squares No Bake

I have always loved baking. I’m not saying that I’m going to subscribe to any baking magazines anytime soon, ( apparently  those  still exist) but I always appreciate it as a  true art form that not a lot of women really understand anymore. Of course, I love fashion, and I love 50s fashion, and baking was huge in the 1950s. Which of course brings me to Mad Men, which I am loving lately.

I will say that one of my least favorite things about the show have to be that those times were simply awful for women. There was really nothing that a woman could do to advance herself and it was difficult for anyone to get ahead if they didn’t have a penis. I have to give respect to women who operated throughout the 20th century because they really created a change that make us so free today is women. I will agree that there are still a lot of problems in Arab countries, …

How Reliable Are Stop Snoring Pillows?

snpOnly a person who has been forced to use the stop snoring pillows can answer the question as to its reliability. The only reason a person will be forced to use such pillows is because of how badly the snoring is affecting not only the individual but also the spouse. Unfortunately, people can go through their entire lives suffering with a disturbed sleep. They can also go through their entire lives startled awake each time the snoring gets just a little louder; thereby, never managing a full night’s sound sleep.

Over the last few years, it has been proven that stop snoring pillows have made a tremendous impact on the poor individuals who suffered silently. Now that they have found this kind of help, these are the same individuals who have become the most ardent of spokespersons for the pillows that can help them achieve a perfect sleep pattern. Who else can promote this solution other than people who have found them reliable?  In fact, you will find that the companies that manufacture the stop snoring pillows are constantly hiring the actual users to be their brand ambassadors. This is what makes the advertising campaigns more realistic. It reinforces the reliability of such pillows in the consumers’ minds.

The Reasons Why Stop Snoring Pillows Are Popular

There are numerous reasons as to why stop snoring pillows have become so popular. One of the most important reasons is that people have become aware of the need for sound sleep. Of late, more and more people are actually recognizing that snoring is cause for major concern and are looking to snoring remedy websites to find devices and solutions.

This is a new trend. In earlier times, I believe that people did not have sleeping problems. In general, people worked as hard as ever; but they extended more physical energy

Two Underrated (and often undercooked) Veggies

There are always two serious vegetables as the worst undercooked in the belief that color and texture are paramount: string beans and broccoli. String beans, which are more logically called green beans, since so few need stringing anymore, don’t have much taste when they’re boiled for a few minutes and drained just after they turn a bright grass green. This is the way I have always cooked them, thinking that when their color is at its most intense their flavor must be too. I’ve had to season them heavily with salt and pepper, and to add lemon juice and oil too. And it has been work to eat them.

I was recently given pause when a friend from North Carolina, enlightened in culinary matters, became dreamy while recounting the pressure-cooked green beans of her youth. I felt queasy as she enthused over their flavor and the ease of cutting through them with a fork, thinking instead how brown and musty they surely tasted. A lot of fatback

Disco Nails

I totally see what nails are so popular because they are so beautiful. There is so much color coming from the things that it is so amazing. The other night I was sitting around at my local nail salon and I realized that it would be an awesome thing for me to have amazing deals like I have been seeing a lot in Japanese fashion magazines lately. Funny thing about the Japanese, is that they seem to always be ahead of the game as opposed to Europeans and Americans, who always are very conservative when it comes to things like nails.

But Disco Nails Are Hott!

It doesn’t really take a genius to realize just how critical disco nails are to this year’s fashion season. I am talking about things like bright colors contrasted with exciting new looks. I think what is so amazing about the e-mail as well is that they are easy to do at home. All you really need is a good manicure kit …

Sugar Parade

I honestly expect that my love for sugar will never die. I was always a bit of a candy freak and growing up my favorite bar had to be the Crunchie bar. This was by no means an easy bar to get a hold of because it was British, and as a result there was not a lot of places that would have. But when you grow up in New York City the fact is that you can almost get anything whenever you want. Except laid, perhaps. But then again, if you’re a woman you can go to whatever depth you need to and you probably don’t have to go too deep.

Yes, I’m editorializing. Anyway, here is exactly what the packaging looks like on a crunchie bar now.

I think what is really funny about this is that when I was just looking for the package for this particular car so I could put it on my blog, I found a shop that was selling the …

Food Fantasia

There are always going to be fantasy that we all have that none of us really want to give up on. One of them for me has to be one of those freaky ones where there is food all around me in a kind of cornucopia scenario. I like the idea of never being hungry, and definitely living in North America makes that not only a huge possibility, but a promise. Anyway, the weighted fantasy works is that I am completely surrounded by all kinds of food: shrimp, strawberries, chocolate, turkeys – and from there all of the people at this banquet begin to shower me with more food to the point that I am covered in it. This is not a messy dream, however, in a sense that everything is absolutely intact and it just comes together as a gigantic potpourri of beautiful food.

I know that this kind of fantasy is something that would have people questioning if I am sane or if I am …
