The weekend began like most other mornings:  a wet, cold nose against my ear (that would be Chaser, not the HH) rousing me from sleep; a quick (warm, dry) kiss to the HH; and popping (okay, more like fizzling) out of bed before stretching, going through the usual ablutions and tramping over to the office to turn on the computer and check out some blogs.  For our lazy Sunday morning (after shovelling the additional 15 cm./ 6 inches of snow that arrived overnight, of course), I thought I might make some pancakes for breakfast–maybe banana; maybe apple.

Then I realized it was almost Hanukkah (or Chanukah) and before I knew it, I was craving potato pancakes (aka latkes).

Two Weeks with NO Added Sweeteners (!)

candida diet no sweeteners for 14 days on rickiheller.com

For many of us on sugar-free diets, the reason we got here in the first place is a love of sweets. I’ve made no secret that I consider myself a sugar addict.

Yup, two weeks with no added sweeteners.

Make it a Sweet Life Thanksgiving this Year!

One of the HH‘s favorite holidays is Thanksgiving (which is coming up on October 9th here in Canada!). Although his family did celebrate Christmas, too, when he was a kid, for some reason that holiday didn’t make its mark on his psyche in quite the same way as T-Day (I know, he was a strange […]
