On our last trip to St. Louis, I did a bit of tidying on our enclosed back porch. I had set this cookbook aside for the future because I figured it would be interesting. This cookbook has at the beginning a plan for a reducing diet. The whole beginning of the cookbook [...]
I’m pretty big on diet shake-ups: if what you’re doing is not working for you then change it. Doing the same thing (or more of it) and expecting better results is just *nuts*, if you think about it.
