August 5th, 2010 · 4 Comments · Food

photo by: dunham_1 I love the Tomato Basil Pesto Pasta Salade made at La Madeleine Cafe.  While living in Austin, we would go there for lunch, meetings, and book club.

Dum Dums

I loved the days when my mother or father had to go to the bank to make a deposit. I knew that on those days I was going to get a Dum Dum. I also loved getting shots because my doctor gave me a Dum Dum afterwards.  Bonkers, Now and Laters, Sugar Daddies and Zebra […]

Last year I had some blood work done and I was told that my blood sugar levels were through the roof. The doctor started throwing around the words Type 2 Diabetes.  I was placed on Metformin and told to cut sugar from my diet. This is hard for a southern girl who loves her sweet […]

photo by: Nook & Pantry photo by: The Italian Dish I love food blogs. One of my favorites is TasteSpotting. People take pictures of their recipes and submit them to the site.
