Hot LInks Coming Up

SUPER BOWL FOOD
John B. (a.k.a. The Catholic Packer Fan) gives two simple but tasty looking recipes that seem perfect for football ... especially those meatballs.

PAD THAI FOR BEGINNERS
Chez Pim doesn't just give a recipe. She gives all the tips and hints that you'd get hanging out with your best buddy to make the perfect Pad Thai. Word is that she's going to be applying this method to other recipes and is taking requests.

ALL ABOUT NATURALLY FOX'S COOKIES BISCUITS
Rather than skirt round the fat and sugar Fox's have made it their starting point and thrust them to the fore. Raw cane Demerara sugar and butter to be precise. Fox's even go as far as telling us on the pack how the biscuits are made with a little mini-recipe. Conception begins with the creaming of the butter and sugar. Some flour, a bit of baking soda, a drop of water and the various other simple things such as oats, raisins, stem ginger are added. Rolled and cut into simple squares and baked until golden. We might not have been present at the birth, but we were probably just out side in the corridor having a cup of tea and wondering why it's really necessary to turn off our mobile phones? Actually the social stigma of possibly causing some terrible but unseen medical emergency in a maternity hospital seems enough to send most of us to the car park rather than investigate further.
This is the prose that keeps me reading about all the cookies that I can't get because they are usually just available in Britain. Who cares when the writing is so good? On the off chance that you come across some of these biscuits you'll know what to buy!

FULL FAT DAIRY LINKED TO LOWER WEIGHT
Good news for those of us who like a bit of flavor in their dairy products. Of course, there's always that pesky "moderation" thing to keep in mind...
