5 Things of Interest

  1. 20 Tips for Curbing Sugar Cravings: Sweets are fine and dandy but lately I have been on a non-stop bender of wanting ice cream, cake and any other sweet thing I can get my paws on. This article has some solid advice for reigning in a sweet tooth.
  2. Cabernet Braised Short Ribs and Mushroom Risotto: It’s Fall, time for some hearty recipes. This looks like an ideal Sunday dinner.
  3. Homemade Naan: I love Naan (an Indian flat bread). I really want to try this recipe, especially since it’s cheaper than going out for naan.
  4. How to Poach an Egg in the Microwave: I actually tried this and the egg exploded BUT I think I need to tweak it a little because my microwave tends to be very hot. If I could manage to make it work, it would be ideal. I love poached eggs but don’t usually have the time involved to make them.
  5. Time Bomb Genes: An interesting article on being tested for genes that could manifest disease, in particular breast cancer and how it may or may not change women’s actions.
