Did you know that we should have no more than 6 teaspoons a day of sugar to avoid all kinds of medical problems? Well I didn’t. With just my coffee and peanut butter toast in the morning I already have over 6 teaspoons! And did you know that a can of coke is about 8 teaspoons? Thanks […]

French onion soup is so comforting!

Basically we RELAX. It feels so nice not […]
