All About Tastebuds

I am definitely fortunate that I have a husband and a son that aren’t fussy eaters. As much as I enjoy trying recipes, combining flavors and experimenting with foods and products new to me their ambitious appetites make my hobby exciting, not frustrating. Whether I’ve followed a recipe or created a dish on my own the three of us take a vote on if it’s a “keeper” or a “one hit morsel.”

It is popular belief that Super Bowl Sunday is the second biggest food consumption day of the year – second only to the holy grail of food holidays – Thanksgiving.

For many, the Super Bowl is a religious experience. It is the finale after many months of football - one final game to crown the true champion. No matter what team you root for, the Super Bowl is something to celebrate during the cold, nasty winter months.

I came across a recipe for Monterey Chicken Tortilla Casserole that I was eager to try; ingredients were basic and instructions were simple. The more I scanned over the recipe, prior to heading out to the grocery store, the more I kept adding to my grocery list. Before I even experimented with the original version I was already expanding on the possibilities of creating a wholesome and satisfying dish. I don’t want to imply the recipe was faulty, but, rather, lacking in content.

There is so much information about health and nutrition coming at us through social media, radio, television and print, it is difficult to decide what is the best for your health. To juice or not to juice?  To detoxifying or not to detoxify?  For optimal results, should you consume one-ingredient foods? Deciphering what is best for us individually is necessary, but also time consuming, costly, and, at times experimental.
