Ho! Ho! Ho!
This year, I wanted to share with you some of my gifts ideas. If you have run out of creative ideas check these out…
The Flavor Bible by Karen Page and Andrew Dornenburg
Winner of the 2009 James Beard Book Award for Best Book
This is not a cookbook- it’s learning how to season ingredients to coax the greatest possible flavor from them. This is a guide to creating deliciousness in any dish. Readers learn to work more intuitively and effectively with ingredients to excite the nose and palate with herbs, spices, and other seasonings; and balance the sensual, emotional, and spiritual elements of an extraordinary meal. I only have two books in my kitchen and this one is by far my favorite. Buy The Flavor Bible
The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley.
This book was first published in 1982, truly a classic and one of my favorite books, a magical saga of the women behind King Arthur’s throne from the perspective of the women. A great read for anyone, man, woman or teenager who likes to read! Buy The Mists of Avalon
Erin McKenna’s Bakery
Know someone whose gluten free? DO you want to get them something special and yummy? Erin has Gluten Free down to a science, I know because I’ve been gluten free for so long that I’ve forgotten what real pizza taste like! Her shops are in NY, LA and Orlando and ship throughout the US.
Everything she makes is refined, sugar-free, gluten-free, wheat-free, soy-free, dairy-free, egg-free, vegan and kosher. www.erinmckennasbakery.com/
If someone you love suffers from chronic joint pain and inflammation, the Willow Curve is an innovative, portable digital pain-relieving device designed to help temporarily reduce minor joint pain. The Willow Curve has been used successfully to treat a number of conditions in thousands of hospitals and clinics nationwide, as well by the Navy SEALS and in professional sports training facilities. www.willowcurve.com
Sometimes I torture my NY heart and soul and think about all the endless scrumptious things NY has to offer tucked away in its streets! I didn’t think about that when I decided to move to FL!
If you happen to be in NY and have never been to Kee’s Chocolates, it is a mist! Their truffles, chocolates, and macaroons are to die for! What can I say that hasn’t been said already in Gourmet, New York Times and Zagat’s to mention a few. Kee’s is one of New York City’s BEST chocolatier’s. They do ship, weather dependent.

Anyone can suffer from high blood pressure at any age. Medication is not always the answer, and they come with side effects that may be unpleasant such as water retention and insomnia. The Zona Plus is a computer-controlled device designed to improve cardiovascular health which fits easily into the palm of your hand. It is easy to use and safe, with no known negative side effects. Young or old, early stage or severe hypertension, medicated or not, nearly everyone could use and benefit from Zona Plus. (Please note, always consult your doctor before making changes to you blood pressure treatment.) www.zona.com
You’re baking, cooking, shopping, wrapping presents, sending cards, decorating and going all out for all those you love. Don’t let the symptoms of menopause take away the joy of the season. This is the gift you buy for yourself and the women in your life you cherish. No one needs to suffer through the holidays! www.femmerol.com
Dr. Alkaitis Skin Care
Love your skin, celebrate your beauty. “If you can’t eat it don’t put it on your skin”. Dr. Alkaitis uses this absolute guideline in formulating his products. These products are a meticulously formulated and highly effective skin food. I have to say I love everything from this line. My daily favorites are the cleanser, toner and face oil. A LITTLE really does go a long way. Buy Dr. Alkaitis Skin Care
