I LOVE the one of the crew member handing her the fish from the fridge. Thanks for sharing...they are great:-)

What Kind of Food/Cooking Show Would You Like to See?

A low-carb, primal, or paleo one. The techniques and some ingredients are new to me so seeing someone present them in live action would be very helpful.

Movies That Changed A Food Forever

Oh. My. God. That is unspeakably sad. I wouldn't eat them anymore, either.

Movies That Changed A Food Forever

What was wrong with the fruit drops?

For me it was the movie 'FatHead'. I haven't had grain or sugar, if I could help it, since watching it a year ago...and I don't really miss them, either!!

New range, what should I cook first?

Yum! I almost wish it was fall and not summer...I LOVE Autumn cooking. Can't wait for stews, soups, pot roast...

New range, what should I cook first?

I am so excited that I have a new range! It is my first new/good range; all the others I inherited with houses I've lived in.

So I know I have to break it in a bit first, but when the initial burnoff is done, what should the inaugural dinner be? I'm open to suggestions...I like everything.

"Chopped" amateur cooks edition..taking applications

Although I would love to see Iron Chef with the secret ingredient be 'TODDLER!!' I would LOVE to see those smartpants chefs try to come up with an edible meal with a two year old clinging to their leg...I have perfected it.

WSJ: "Not All Calories Equal, Study Shows"

But carbs are not a 'nutrient class' . There is no such thing as an 'essential carbohydrate'. There are no nutrients in carbs that CANNOT be found in other foods, yet there are many detrimental things found only in certain carbs.

And 'no grains' is not the same as 'no carbs'...not in the least.

Moderation doesn't work for everyone. Some people (me) do much better and are much healthier cutting out certain foods completely.

Article on low fat foods

So glad to hear that the truth is beginning to get around! I appreciate you sharing that article:)

Buffalo Wings - Let's do Something Different

I just put regular mayo in the food pro with minced garlic, salt, and whatever herbs strike me at the moment...thyme, herbs de Provence, etc.. It comes out really good.

(you can also use that mayo mixture on regular chicken for dinner...slather it under and on top of the skin and roast. It is so succulent and delicious!)

In a pinch you could use the flavored jarred mayo too and I'm sure it would be good. I've seen a garlic one and also a chipotle one that would be yummy on wings too!

Buffalo Wings - Let's do Something Different

I roast my wings @ 425 for an hour (frozen). Then I take them out, put them in a bowl and slather with garlic and herb mayo (mayo + chicken = heaven!) Back in the oven to crisp up for about 10 mins. So good.

They don't taste mayo-flavored, just moist and garlicky!

Paula Deen eating a cheeseburger

exactly. Why would you prescribe a certain diet to diabetics KNOWING it raises their insulin and then push drugs to counteract that diet? Why not just fix the way of eating and cut out or reduce the drugs?

Paula Deen eating a cheeseburger

A hamburger has the outside and inside of the meat all mixed together, upping chances for bacteria to form, but a steak has never been exposed, on the inside, to certain bacteria, making it theoretically safer.

But it seems they have it backward, or out of order, I guess.

Yes, many diabetics are overweight, but obesity is a symptom of their diets. They develop diabetes because they cannot manage the huge amounts of insulin being secreted when bombarded with sugar in the body.
It is sugar/grains/processed carbs>>>overweight>>>insulin resistant>>>diabetes.

The order is what is getting misconstrued and confused, which is what makes people say 'oh she's diabetic because she's fat'. But WHY is she fat? That is the cause of the diabetes...not the other way around.

Why thank you!

It is such a misconception that skinny AUTOMATICALLY = healthy. I've heard doctors say that the most difficult of all patients is the skinny diabetic. They tend to think they are not sick and are more difficult to get to make dietary changes.

Actually, diabetes is caused by insulin - resistance, which is caused directly by eating too much sugar. Sugar comes in many forms: actual table sugar, but also in grains (aka hamburger bun) which are converted directly to sugar in our systems. Sugar causes insulin to release, and in turn that insulin signals the body to store fat and not burn it, which accounts for the obesity.

Science, doesn't disagree with those facts. Years and years of Americans being fed misleading information about fat, sugar, and grains are what is causing YOU to disagree with me, though!

Paula Deen eating a cheeseburger

The only part of that burger that would interfere with her diabetes is the bun. The rest, well, diabetes is not caused by fat.
I'm so sick of everyone blaming all her butter, cream, and bacon on causing diabetes. It doesn't work that way!
