Soup
Cold spring months say tasty meals of soups and stews and using the crock pot.
I am so pleased that science has gotten it right and we now know how good eggs are for all of us. So I ask you, “When is the last time you enjoyed an egg?” Yes egg prices have increased but they are still a bargain and packed with nutrition.
Gluten
You have heard a lot more about gluten over the last five years and more people have learned that they need to avoid it. Gluten is a protein found in foods made from wheat, barley, and rye. More consumers need to learn what the purpose of gluten is in food preparation, baking, in our diets, and what a gluten-free diet is.
