My Sick Love Affair With Food – Soul Epicure

My sick love affair with food is strong. The bond between me and unhealthy food is unbreakable and unequivocal. Don’t get me wrong, I have actually been seen around town hanging out with healthy food before, but make no mistake about it; unhealthy food is bae and we have been and probably always will be in each […]

Egg and Scampi with Shrimp

juicy meatloaf… recipe included

walnut sticks with strawberries

I was looking for a quick and easy dessert for a recent gathering over the holidays and was not sure what to make.  Thinking about something light that could be finger-food  I decided to make some sweet bread sticks and topped it with sweetened strawberries. Start out by washing and cutting your strawberries to your own […]
