      This bar of Chocolove was one of the best choclate bars Cathy and I have eaten. We both are chocolate lovers and Chris at Grecos Deli said it is one great chocolate company from Boulder Colarado. Looking forward to trying the cherry bar. The Almonds in sea salt dark gave us a good chocolate flavour high. Check it out the next time you need a chocolate and read the love poem on the inside wrapper to your sweetie and get an extra bonus squeeze and hug.. Worked for me! http://www.chocolove.com/...

Lizano Salsa

Lizano Salsa

                On my travels I always am looking for interesting food items from the country I am visiting. I heard a lot about Lizano Salsa and after first trying it in Puerto Rico on Johnny Cakes filled with a filet of fried Dorado a member of the Tunis family [Gnathono-don Speciosus] I realised that this was the added flavour that was missing in my South American recipe dishes. I also met the visiting daughter of the Lizano family when I met her in my Deli in White Rock BC where she was promoting her line of Costa Rican...
Berries are Good! K

Berries are Good! K

Ever wonder why there are so many birds that like to eat berries? A bears survival cravings are the same as humans and love the taste and the energy from eating the fresh picked fruits.

Fat Cells actually up-regulates gene expression for fat oxidation (fat burning) and down-regulates gene expression for fat storage. The oxidation of fatty acids increases further, directly through the release of adiponectin. The overall effect is that fat cells begin to shrink in size. The reduced...
