C Diff

If you are in a hurry, at least read the last paragraph of this blog I have not tried a single new recipe in weeks. HH and I have both been eating a rather bland diet, trying to get his digestive tract back in shape from the double antibiotic disaster last March. I have not […]

Family Lunch

Years ago, we established family dinner time. But it’s been hard to work that out lately, because Leah has been working in the evenings for the past several months, and doesn’t always come home after work. Then this week, Hannah started taking one college class in the evenings. Since it’s summer session, this particular class […]

Earache & Hearing Aids

I woke up on Monday morning two weeks ago with pain in my ear. That was a surprise. The last time I had an ear infection was when I was in elementary school, a long time ago. My first thought was that I had something like swimmer’s ear. It has been a cold damp spring […]

Diferencias en los tipos de carbohidratos

Alimentos altos en carbohidratos también suelen ser altos en lectinas. El contenido de lectina depende en gran medida, del tipo sanguíneo. Carbohidratos erróneos o ‘no compatibles’ con cierto tipo sanguíneo contienen lectinas que actúan en forma de ‘insulina’, activando hidroxilasa tirosinica y lipasa; dos enzimas intercelulares encontradas en tejido adiposo que impiden el funcionamiento de […]

Recipes for Leftovers

We often have leftover poultry, since I always want to make fresh for Shabbos dinner on Friday nights. I also want to make enough in case we have unexpected company. Then if we don’t have company, we’ll have enough left over for another meal. I used to make whole chickens every week, but since starting […]

Eating like 1 year old

I was driving yesterday and someone on the radio said that in the 1960s the average woman weighed 140 pounds and the average man weighed 166. Today the average woman weighs 166.2. The announcer said, “I don’t think that’s what those fighting for equality in the 60s had in mind.” When I heard that, I […]

Room for Cream? The Mystery of “Half-&-Half”

What the heck is “Half-&-Half”? Why does the stuff show up on retail shelves? It’s a wholesale product: It makes for coffee-shop convenience. Its existence says: “Where customers desire expensive cream, we pre-dilute it , to expedite consumer-delivery in a fast-serve setting”. It makes good business sense for any self-serve establishment. But: In the home? The […]

FODMAP and BTD

In early March my Honorable Husband had all the symptoms of diverticulitis. He had had two previous attacks. We were out of town at the time, so he went to a walk in medical clinic. The doctor concurred that it looked like diverticulitis and gave him two strong antibiotics. The treatment worked, and the diverticulitis […]

Sabbatical

I didn’t plan to take a sabbatical from blogging. It just happened. 2015 started off really slow for my business. To be honest, I sort of enjoyed working on some of my own projects. I tend to be like the plumber who has a leaky faucet at his own house. I’m scanning other people’s slides, […]
