Sake Chicken

Show Muscle, Strength & Weight Loss

I recently read a really cool article about the rise and popularity of body building, “muscle men” and the early days of Venice Beach and Gold’s Gym.

If you have never had them, the are greener and 2 to 3 times the size of a California avocado also know as a Read More

Sweet Potato Shrimp Bisque

This is an easy one to do, but requires just a bit more time. ¬†When done, will feel like you’re eating in a restaurant. I had a bit of time yesterday and I made it for lunch. Overall this doesn’t take more than 30-40 minutes, but well worth it. You do need one key ingredient…Shellfish Read More

Condiment Addiction # 2
