Supplements and Twinkies. Although we did not set out to do so, we seemingly have covered both ends of the nutrition spectrum this month.

Recipe of the Month
Peeps Driving Twinkies !

 

 

Some holidays involve foods that are less about consumption and more about fun or tradition, like Halloween's jack o'lantern or Passover's beitzah. In addition to Easter's dyed eggs, we now have Peeps driving Twinkie cars. Whether you choose to eat these creations or not, building them can be fun, and they are cute conversation pieces to have on hand at gatherings. Read More
