Pimento Cheese, Not Your Grandma's Spread

Pimento cheese is one of those foods that has been so corrupted by the food industry that it has become synonymous with other crappy foods like Spam.  I'm not even certain what store bought pimento cheese might contain, nor do I want to find out.  It's a shame because pimento cheese can be a delightful treat, even if it does Read the full post…

Plum Good BBQ Sandwiches

In a few days it will officially be fall but the temperatures are still warm enough for me to continue swimming for a few more days.  The breeze was a little cool but that didn't stop me from swimming several laps this morning and I felt great afterwards!  Have you exercised lately?  With fall's cooler temperatures and fewer insects, you Read the full post…

Shingles Vacine and Treatment

A friend of mine was recently diagnosed with shingles so I felt I should discuss this nasty virus once again.  If you ever had chicken pox, you are at risk for getting shingles and believe me, you don't want it.  Shingles is a painful rash with blisters that scab over and may take 4 weeks or more to heal.  The Read the full post…

Vegetarian Tacos are muy delicioso!

There are times when I think I could easily become a vegetarian, especially when I try a new dish that is as good as the vegetarian tacos I had at Local Lime restaurant in Little Rock and the tofu fried rice at Sai Tai here in Jonesboro.  My husband and I celebrated our 23rd anniversary this past weekend by spending Read the full post…

Life is too short to eat bad food! Rosemary Baked Chicken with Potatoes

[ Post by Lisa Tedder ][ Post on September 22, 2009 ]

Life is too short to eat bad food. That is my motto and it should be your’s too. That is why when we travel, we search out some place decent to eat. Fast food is last on the list. That is why we make food choices very carefully. Why waste calories on something substandard when Read the full post…

[ Post by Lisa Tedder ][ Post on September 10, 2009 ]

From time to time, I will mention convenience foods I use because of their nutritional value, cost and ease of use. I have two new products to recommend this week.

Labor Day – Tuna and White Bean Salad

[ Post by Lisa Tedder ][ Post on September 4, 2009 ]

Labor Day weekend is here but that shouldn’t mean laboring in the kitchen. It shouldn’t mean eating hot dogs, chips and dip and cheap store bought cookies all weekend either. I tried a new recipe last weekend that gets high ratings in simplicity, speed of preparation and taste. Even my children gave it a 6 Read the full post…

Alarming Trends

[ Post by Lisa Tedder ][ Post on September 1, 2009 ]

When my husband first started practicing cardiology here in Jonesboro 17 years ago, his patients were mostly in their 60′s, 70′s and 80′s. Exactly the patient population cardiologists expected to see. But over those 17 years two alarming trends have occurred, one I know you read about (or maybe ignore?) and see on TV. First, Read the full post…

[ Post by Lisa Tedder ][ Post on August 26, 2009 ]

After the summer break, I’m finally back to writing. I didn’t intend to stop but I was swamped with my children’s summer sports schedule. While I stopped writing, I didn’t give up on healthy eating or exercising and I hope you didn’t either. I swam, lifted light weights, walked or did dance aerobics at least Read the full post…
