It seems as though I have fallen off of the band wagon of healthy and heart friendly dishes. My soap box has sunk!!
I have convinced myself we have to indulge in the foods that we love or there seems no point to living. To deprive ourselves would be against all that I believe in on leading a full, happy and well-rounded life. Say amen!!!
