Fresh sorrel could be a little challenging to find in a local grocery store, so the best place to look for it is in a specialty food stores, or to grow your own. I had a difficult time to even find seeds, until I inquired about it in our local gardening/farming store. They did not have it in stock, but were familiar with this herb, so I was very pleased to be able to order it.
Let me introduce you to this vegetable/herb, if you never had a chance to experience its taste or appearance.
Dieting is not an easy task to keep up with, but worse yet, what do you do about celebrating a Birthday, and you need a special cake for the occasion. How about a cake for someone on Atkins Diet (high fat and extremely low carbs), which means no sugar and no flour……a couple of main ingredients you always use in making cakes!
Google.com to the rescue!! I found a real nice recipe for a Sugar Free Pecan Chocolate Cake, but I was quite skeptical about the outcome of this project….cake without flour or real sugar…only sugar substitutes….??? Would it taste like chocolate flavored cardboard??? Would it be very dense? Would it be very flat???
I love yogurt, not only because it tastes great, but also because it is a very healthy part of my diet. The main ingredient in yogurt is milk, live and active cultures, plus other ingredients such different fruit and flavors, fortified with vitamins. Yogurt is made by adding cultures of certain bacteria to milk. These microorganisms convert the lactose in the milk to lactic acid. The lactic acid gives yogurt its characteristic tart taste and causes the milk to form a soft curd.
When we think of the word “organic”, we relate to something that is natural, wholesome, crude, unrefined, untreated. Most often we think of fruit and vegetables which have been cultivated in harmony with nature, and not treated with chemicals found in fertilizers and pesticides. However there is also organic milk and milk byproducts.
