She was a hurricane in a brown tank suit. It was as if a wood nymph and a biker had had a love child.
Most medical and nutritional professionals agree: ultra-high protein, low-carbohydrate, high fat weight loss plans not only aren’t healthy, but sometimes trigger health problems.
Orecchiette is a small, round, cup-shaped pasta. It means “little ears” in Italian. I don’t see it. I think it looks more like a stocking cap for Hipster Barbie.
When I was growing up, I loved my mom's stuffed eggs. Heck, as a chubby and happy-go-lucky kid, I loved anything filled with mayonnaise.
Weight loss is rarely an easy journey and celebrity chef Art Smith knows that first hand.
Like many other little boys, this one likes action movies, amusement parks and peanut butter cookies. He always wears baseball caps, and you can divine what he had for lunch by interpreting spots on his T-shirt. He’s a charming, typical little boy.

Sometimes it seems that just as we get ourselves fully into summer mode, we need to start thinking back to school! Oh, no!
