There are two basic body types–apple and pear. Apples, like me, accumulate fat in abdomen, back and arms. The pear accumulates fat in the thighs, butt, and legs. These two separate body types need different methods to cut the fat, so you need to do a quick assessment of which type you are before you move any further into this post.
In order to continued to shrink my waist and at least feign an hourglass figure, I had to come to terms that I had to give up something I really enjoyed and gave me comfort: DRINKING.
The cassata siciliana consists of round sponge cake moistened with fruit juices or liqueur and layered with ricotta cheese, candied peel, and a chocolate or vanilla filling similar to cannoli cream. It is covered with a shell of marzipan, pink and green pastel colored icing, and decorative designs.
A timballo is an Italian molded dish, typically of pasta or rice, with a filling of meat or vegetables. Although there are many versions of timballo Siciliano, it’s typically a pasta dish containing eggplant, similar to Greek moussaka. The name timballo (like the French timbale) derives from an ancient percussion instrument, the drum or tympanum, so by analogy, a cylindrical mold. It probably began with Middle Eastern or Mediterranean meat-filled pies.
Coffee has a remarkable affinity with beef. Here, it is complemented by balsamic vinegar, garlic and crushed peppercorns. Cooking to medium, this succulent cut of beef will bring back memories of bar-b-queue’s on the beach, friendly gatherings at the end of a summer day. A dry port or burgundy wine, or a tall frosty stein of your favorite beer is called for here, while new memories are being created. Enjoy my friends!
I like my beer just as much as the next woman. I live in Philly after all, which a a major beer town. Hubby and I are home brewers and when traveling he and I always try what is local. Sometimes this works, some times not so much. Sorry Baltimore we tried your Natty Boh recently at a place in Fels Point. Nah Uh.
My own personal recipe for Crusty Italian Bread. You may or may not add sesame seeds on top. Italian bread – Perhaps a bit closer to French bread in composition and appearance, American “Italian bread” is a lean white bread, often braided and covered in sesame seeds, with a thin but usually crisp crust and a soft crumb. American “Italian bread” does not particularly resemble many traditional Italian bread forms, but is very popular in both loaf form and roll form, where it is often closely associated with sandwich making.
A delicious pea soup recipe with ham and seasonings. This tasty soup provides a hearty meal that includes meat and vegetables in one dish. It is great topped with croutons or served with a slice of your favorite bread. Green or yellow dried split peas can be used with this recipe.
What does sugar have to do with heart health? Well, sugar consumption in the United States is ridiculously high, and manufacturers scheme by hiding sugar in just about everything thing, which leads to us consuming extra calories and spiking our blood sugar, which over time leads to obesity and insulin resistance. Insulin resistance leads to diabetes, and diabetes damages all our internal organs–especially the heart. Combine that with high blood pressure and you have the perfect recipe for a heart attack. That’s why we invited Celebrity nutrition and fitness expert JJ Virgin, Co-Host of TLC’s hit series ‘Freaky Eaters’ in her #7 New York Times best seller, The Virgin Diet to give us some frank talk about the good, bad and ugly on the sweet stuff.
