EatingWellIf you're looking for an afternoon pick-me-up and trying to stay on a diet, a good snack can help you stay on track. Research suggests that nutritious snacks can stave off hunger by stabilizing blood sugar -- which may help you eat more sensibly at mealtimes. And when you keep snacks to 100 calories (or less), they can be a dieter's best friend, boosting your energy and keeping you satisfied without tanking your daily calorie tally.
First things first, the CellarVie Wines team cannot lay claim to being responsible for the making of the ‘Ultimate Sandwich’. This remarkable feat of culinary engineering, complete with the beautiful pictures displayed below, arrived in our inbox courtesy of an anonymous email chain on Tuesday afternoon. Jamie Oliver would undoubtedly and perhaps quite correctly, not endorse this as a healthy meal, and it certainly isn't for the faint-hearted but we thought it was a bit of fun nonetheless. So feast your eyes on the ‘Ultimate sandwich’…
You're probably right. Or you could be like me, a single young male living on his own, never washes hands, cleans kitchen once every other week, ignores best before dates, forgets to throw away old food (and leave it in the fridge until I finally notice), have a cat running around the house. I have never had food poisoning. Guess either I built up a strong enough immune system, or I'm doing just the bare minimum so that I don't get sick....
If you’re following me on Facebook and Twitter you know that I’m sick with the flu right now. Fortunately it’s not as serious as H1N1, but it is the flu and I do feel terrible. The crazy typhoon-driven storm we’ve been dealing with since last night hasn’t helped much to help me feel better either. Poor Girl Eats Well: Recipe: Hearty Mushroom &Potato Soup - StumbleUpon

1. Bacon Guacamole Mash 2 avocados with 1/2 cup each chopped tomato and cilantro, 1/4 cup each chopped onion and crumbled cooked bacon, 1/2 minced jalapeño, some lime juice and salt. 2. Cheesy Bacon Popcorn Drizzle 4 cups hot popcorn with 1 tablespoon bacon drippings.
Add bacon to anything and it will fly off the table. That’s what a caterer once told me and I believe it. Certainly applies here. Whether you’re planning a cookout this weekend or cooking indoors (rain predicted here in Texas), grill up a few of these sizzling treats for a quick appetizer or serve as an entree. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate the Fourth of July than with a big plate of these spicy and cheesy, smoky and crispy chicken nuggets.
1 Bring a medium (6- to 8-quart) pot of water to a boil. Salt it generously (it should taste like the sea). Stir in the pasta and cook according to the package directions.

Long before Himself and children, my roommate Sara and I would make the trek to White Castle’s for some sliders or Gut Busters as we liked to call them. Piping hot and smelling so good we could down two or three before our brain knew what was happening and made us slow down. Kinda like Krispie Kreme Hot and Nows. Those days are far away and so is the nearest White Castle, therefore I have resorted to making my own. I have tried the frozen kind but I prefer fresh. Let’s start.
Stuffed Red Peppers
Breakfast is my favorite meal. I like to drink iced coffee and watch the cream climb its way down the chunky ice cubes in a dazy before the caffeine hits.
