My Rx4Wellness Tips : Healthy Eating - Good Fat vs Bad Fat

You comb through hundreds of articles on diet, health, and nutrition. Listen to Dr. Oz and all the other experts. You despair and wonder if you will ever achieve your “healthy eating” objectives. Finally, you find information that gives you hope. Why? Because it lists all the foods you like to eat anyway!! Not some. ALL!!!

Memories are Blessings | My Hometown ~ Miami, Florida

"Count your Blessings" is a familiar Christian hymn that encourages people not to focus on the negatives and count all the Things they can be thankful for; all the good things in life they've been blessed to experience. Try it.  Especially when you're about to end a year and start a new year.  A great time to reflect on the blessings you're counting.

Growing up in Miami, Florida, there was good eating all around me. My main sources for everyday meals was: my mother's cooking, church dinners prepared by faithful sisters, and a sweet little old gray-haired lady who owned and operated a restaurant around the corner from my house called "Mom's Cafe". I never knew her name because everybody called her "mom". Those women really knew how to serve up the love! Huge plates of pigeon peas and rice, potato salad, collard greens, black eye peas, fried chicken; sweet potato pie for dessert.


As I grew into a teenager and young adult, started working part-time while pursuing my education; had a little pocket change so occasionally I could go out to eat. Downtown Miami and particularly Calle Ocho (8th Street), there were spots where you could chow down on delicious Cuban food: sweet fried plantains, black beans and rice, vaca frita, or a toasty Cuban sandwich. Kosher food delicatessens and restaurants run by the Jews on Miami Beach were the best! The soups, sandwiches, and desserts were outrageous! That was just lunch! Of course, no major city is complete if you can't find good Chinese food. Miami is a major city with places that have award-winning Chinese cuisine.


Getting close now to my threescore an ten (70 years, the average life expectancy). When I count my blessing over the years, the list has grown and grown and grown. There are a lot of add-ons. But the list always includes that one great memory from my childhood. Good food!

California Cuisine - History, Features and Fun Facts

California cuisine?  What's that?  Uh (???) … duh??  Food prepared by California chefs.

Wild guess!



Each bullet point presented below has been explored in much further detail by fellow freelance writer Om Paramapoonya and presented in an article titled:








  • The term “California cuisine” was first used by food critics and magazine editors.
  • California has diverse agriculture and people. Thus, the cuisine reflects the variety of local produce and seafood, and the fusion of ethnic diversities, mainly, Mexicans, Europeans, and Asians/Pacific Islanders.
  • Californians have a health-conscious culture and food artisans, farmers' markets and organic farming are highly respected, valued and appreciated.
  • Signature dishes served in restaurants typically highlight: artichokes, avocado, dry jack cheese, goat cheese, roasted garlic ("stinking rose"), sourdough bread, sun dried tomatoes, and … whatever produce is in season, at the time.
  • California classic dishes – such as Cioppino (a fish stew), Oyster Cocktail, the California roll and California-Style Pizza – each have an interesting history about their origins.


The facts are fun!  Did not the story of how the California-Style Pizza came to be.  Know it now!  :)

California Cuisine - History, Features and Fun Facts

"What is California cuisine?" my boyfriend skeptically asked, as I told him I was going to write about it. In spite of having lived in California his whole life, he still wasn't sure how to describe the style of cooking in this region. I guess it's not that strange for many Californians to feel this way.


♦ ♦ ♦

Since we're on the topic of pizza.  October is National Pizza Month in the USA.  So this post isn't dated October and the celebration is either a little early (too soon in the year) or a little late (missed it last year).   Eh!  I'm sure pizza celebrated all year round in Italy.  You've got two choices.  Pretend it's October OR pretend you're in Italy.  (Of course, if you are in Italy, no need to pretend.)

Sous Vide Cooking Tips | Scoop.it

Credit is being given to the French for Sous Vide (pronounced soo-veed) Cooking, which is a method of preparing foods by vacuum sealing and cooking packed foods in controlled temperature water. 

I've seen Ming Tsai use this technique and he was trained as a chef in France. 

No matter. When it comes to cooking, if the French say we can do it, we can do it! 

Furthermore, according to my thinking, when Ming Tsai says two thumbs up and shows you how to, you've run out of excuses.  Because Mr. Tsai knows the best to cook anything! Hey! I'm a loyal fan! :)

Sous Vide Cooking has become increasingly popular over the years. This is an easy, effective method of cooking that preserve nutrients and deliver on flavor ...
