Mastering the Mortar and Pestle

I've made these from both wood and clay - they are a very attractive way to grind your own spices. I just recently purchased a hand cranked stone grinder.

Cut Back on Salt, Not Flavor

It's all about how one is raised. If you've been raised in a home where salt is often used you develop cravings for salt - its like a drug a little is ok but a lot can kill you.

When I think of getting rid of slugs in the garden I put salt on them and they twist and turn and shrivel up. Slugs closely resemble our own intestines, imagine when you use excessive salt what you are doing to your own stomach.

"Breakfast" around the world

the soymilk you tasted is typical of store bought soymilk loaded with sugar and over watered. try making your own or try homemade soymilk and you will never go back to buying soymilk - thick and rich and creamy

What's The One Thing You Can't Eat, even for money.

There are very few things that I cannot eat or will not eat. I believe in the simple: "if someone made it with their very own hands then I must at least try it once" and yes I have tried some weird things once but never thought that I disliked them just never thought anything about it. cover it with soy sauce or some other sauce and I will bet you that you could not tell the difference between rabbit and chicken or dog and beef.

What is Chinese "Liang Cha?"

liangcha is just a word for teas made from herbs that cool the body due to excess heat.
