Organic Chicken Pot Pie!!!


The Old saying "Your are what you Eat" is very true indeed. Why you ask, well let's talk about that for a bit.

Fast foods chains may be trying to lure us back with the salads, or the wraps, but do you really know what is in them? how many calories are there in each one?

Ricotta for Dessert?

Beef Broth Stew by Chef Gianna

What makes really good stew?
Some say it is the stock

Still some insist it is the meat

I say it is all and just a little more.

Sometimes I put celery, and potatoes, and a creamy beef gravy.
Other times I will make a broth base stock add green beans carrots, broccoli, and onions, and even mushrooms.

Then there is the uncanny way we all put our ingredients together.

The patient sits there for a minute and looks a bit blank and then starts to tell him what motivates her each and every day.
