What's Cooking?: Shape Up!

The overindulgent holiday feasting is finally over and the New Year projects the familiar resolutions we’ve come to know every year in regard to our health and fitness.  Where we recently were enticed by the seductive sweets that surrounded us during the holiday gluttony without any guilt, we must now discipline ourselves to withdrawn from this temptation.  After stepping on the scale to see the damage, there will be no delay in cutting out the homemade cookies, banana breads, chocolates, and apple pie that are all sitting in the kitchen within reach.  It is certainly the right time to go back to eating smaller portions to whip us into shape. The bounty of nourishing healthy recipes provides variety and interests.  Never a dull selection.  Although correcting our eating habits to maintain a healthier diet is not easy, there are many sources to help us support a healthy lifestyle eating. 

Book Review of Speechless by Hannah Harrington, review done by Marie Yatsyk

Everyone knows that Chelsea Knot can’t keep a secret.”

After spilling a secret that almost gets someone killed, Chelsea Knot decides that she won’t speak to anyone - not her teachers, her parents, or even herself - until she learns how to “keep her mouth shut” and stop hurting others. But there’s a difference between blurting out and speaking up, and it takes some unexpected friends that are willing to give Chelsea a second chance for her to learn that difference - and to learn to forgive herself.
