WAIT! Don’t leave just because I used the word KETO! This is such a great way to get your veggies in, no matter what religion you worship ~ vegan, vegetarian, paleo, keto, or cookie monster!

The major key factors I know about my father’s side of the family is this: they drink coffee … Continue reading Collards and Beans w/Cornbread Mug Cake.
I wonder how easy life would be if we could cut off our emotions and just be robots? Granted, I don’t want that kind of life. But could I maybe have just a touch of it?
