Does Fermentation Really Boost Your Immune System?

Does Fermentation Really Boost Your Immune System?

A few weekends ago I had the pleasure of visiting the Charleston Farmer’s Market at Marion Square. I was speaking to quite a few of the vendors but one vendor particularly stood out. His name is Ken Jaimes from Kenchi Ferments. Ken was such a nice man and very knowledgeable in the field of fermentation. I sampled two of his Kenchi’s; Mustard Kale Kenchi and Orange Coriander Kenchi. Each Kenchi was equally delicious and really satisfied my palate for tart, tangy...

Holiday Eggnog Cocktail

Holiday Eggnog Cocktail

When I was a child Christmas was one of my Momma’s favorite holidays. She went all out preparing her famous holiday cookies, fudge and homemade eggnog. It was truly one of the happiest times of the year for our family. She’d have the house decked out with holiday decorations, a beautiful tree with stunningly wrapped gifts underneath and Christmas music the whole season long. I swear she made dozens upon dozens of her holiday cookies, pounds of fudge and gallons...

Midlife Marriage Problems? Practical Questions To Think About

Midlife Marriage Problems? Practical Questions To Think About

I think every man and woman going through midlife asks the question “Will my marriage survive this midlife transition?’ I know I have asked myself that question at least once daily. While there are many variables that can factor in to the answer, statistics show that 60% percent of divorces are initiated by women between the age of 40 through 60 and even beyond. Now that doesn’t look very promising does it? Most of us have spent 15, 20, 25, 30...

Menopause, Are Men Really The Victims? The Astonishing Answer

Menopause, Are Men Really The Victims? The Astonishing Answer

We all know that entering Midlife can be a difficult experience for women. It can also be difficult for men as well. Men really don’t comprehend the term menopause so when his spouse begins to demonstrate symptoms they immediately think the worst … he doesn’t realize that her actions are reactions to hormonal changes brought on by menopause. Well, at least not at first. As history goes, men tend to age with grace. Their salt and pepper hair can be attractive...

Cherry and Brie Pastry Cups

When it comes to holiday entertaining I always go for the super easy appetizers. This frees my time up for the more complex recipes I plan on serving for dinner and keeps me stress-free. These Cherry and Brie Pastry Cups are super easy and incredibly delicious. The flavors of warm, melted Brie and sweet dark cherries are enhanced with a slight hint of maple syrup. You can sprinkle a few fresh thyme leaves on top prior to baking to add a more savory...
