No Bake Desserts

Pomegranate season is in full swing. If you know me, you know that means I’m in utter bliss! Poms are my all-time favourite fruit and I mourn their disappearance from supermarket shelves each spring. Needless to say, while these babies are available, I incorporate them into as many recipes as humanly possible! Whether or not you’re trying to appease a gluten-free friend, this spiced pear and pomegranate dessert should be the next recipe you try! If you’re looking for a more traditional dessert, simple bake some pre-made tarts according to their directions and spoon in the mixture! Ingredients: 4......

When I think of vegetables I think of the nutrition factor they have, along with all the enzymes, which is why they should be eaten at every meal.  Potatoes contain vitamin C, vitamin B6, copper, potassium, manganese, tryptophan and fiber.  These are all great things and do......
