ok I am in serious need of high calorie recipes, I know this sounds strange but I can only eat a small amount at any given time and I need to pack in as many calories as possible while still eating relatively healthy. I am lactose intolerant and have a hard time with meat. Help!
thought I would pass this along for those with kids or anyone who can't have alcohol. I love to soak my strawberries in red wine to bring out all the wonderful flavors, but since I can't have alcohol at this time I asked my Dr. about the alcohol free wines available at most grocery stores. I was concerned because they do have a little alcohol. To make a long story short, the amount of alcohol is no more than you would find absorbed with mouthwash. So while I dont actually drink that stuff by preference, if you like wine in your food and have been holding back because of children in the house, feel free. Although, I wouldnt recomend using it for anything that is cooked, the flavor isnt bad but I personally wouldnt want it concentrated.
They say that memory and scent are strongest linked. What smells trigger memories for you the most strongly. For me it's the smell of olive oil and sauteeing onions and garlic.
From previous threads I know quite a few of you have dogs, and I wanted to pass on this warning from personal experience, we all know the dangers of onions and chocolate to our dogs, but there is another that I unthinkingly, used to give is a treat. Please do not feed your dog(s) anything that contains pork! I always thought this was a safe treat as even pet stores sell pork or ham bones specifically for dogs. It is dangerous folks. According to both an emergency pet clinic and my regular vet, pork in any form can cause something called pancreatitis in dogs, not just some dogs, but all dogs. I had my doubts but, was informed that a dog can eat pork for years and never have a problem, (which mine did) and then for some reason it attacks. the symptoms include, vomiting, lethargy, distended upper abdomen and intense pain. If not treated it can lead to death. I know I'm a bit over protective of my animals, and not everyone will be as concerned. But I felt the need to pass on this warning, because I've had people tell me they knew about this and never said anything, I never knew. So if you read this please pass this warning on to anyone you know that has a dog. If the moderators feel this should be deleted, I understand and appologize for taking up space.
Sorry if this offends anyone, but the whole idea of of this makes me nauseaus! They even have the nerve to quailfy this as a sport! The health industry keeps telling us obesity is rampant in the US and yet we have people that feel this is something to cheer on! Is it just me, or does anyone else think this is truly warped?
