    Not at all interested in any of the recipes you list on this blog even when they look so good.
    Why do you always include ones that have no nutritional counts when there are so many great recipe blogs that do have that info???? Most of us are tracking our food and it is really a lot of work to enter the data and find the values are not within our guidelines. They don't seem as useful as they coud to SparkPeople users. - 2/8/2011   8:35:02 AM

    Well, the recipe for the butternut squash enchiladas interested me. If I wanted my husband to divorce me, that would be the dinner to fix for him to push the deal through, lol. - 2/7/2011   9:22:10 PM

    Good Articles...messages i needed to hear, thank you! - 2/7/2011   1:59:23 PM
    Dudley Laufman wrote a great dance your way fit book--Traditional Barn Dances with Calls and Fiddling. It has written instructions for 53 dances, plus an instructional DVD to learn how to dance the traditional barn dance steps, and music CDs with and without the calls. I dance around the kitchen all the time listening to them.
    I also call dances and work with a band, if anyone is interested, leave me a message on my SparkPage. - 2/7/2011   9:48:19 AM

    We've just had a member of our family go through open heart surgery, so the heart healthy cooking tips are really great. I also really appreciated the article on Lauren Niemes in Cincinnati. Indiana is in as bad a shape as Cincinnati. We've got such a long way to go as a society. Hooray for people like Lauren who never quit trying. - 2/6/2011   8:07:09 PM

    I have never liked Hillary Swank, so I wasn't surprised she has muscular arms. LOL She's a "pill."
    Global obesity was an interesting article. - 2/6/2011   7:36:18 PM

    I liked "'Health Hero' Lauren Niemes takes on bad foods (from" She's committed her life to helping people fight the big industry that seems so intent on sabotaging our efforts to live a healthy, fulfilling and strong life. She could easily get discouraged, but she keeps on keeping on! - 2/6/2011   1:36:51 PM
