Perfect Peach Cobbler

by Affluent Magazine

Getting Re-Acquainted with Old Friends

by Brian Freedman

Getting Re-Acquainted with Old Friends If you spend enough time with wine-lovers, you know that there are certain phrases that get repeated time and time again. “That’s good juice!” “Man, that wine’s got a long life ahead.” “Personally, I prefer the nuance of Old World reds and the power of New World ones.” There’s nothing wrong with these phrases or the sentiments they convey: They are merely commonly expressed opinions that reflect personal perceptions or preferences regarding the wine under discussion.

Ten Steps to Go From Worrier to Warrior

by Debbie Mandel

Ten Steps to Go From Worrier to Warrior Some people let defeat ruin them; others let victory ruin them. A true warrior triumphs in victory or defeat. A warrior doesn’t fight to be right. He or she prefers inner peace and compromise. A warrior, as opposed to a worrier, views problems as obstacles to be tackled. Each problem solved raises one’s confidence to navigate the next and the stress threshold gets higher. The interim between problems means fun and rest, an appreciation of the ordinary without the drama.

Is Your Image as Great as You?

by Sandy Dumont

Is Your Image as Great as You? When others look at you, do they see your greatness, your true value? Or do they see a person whose irreverent image shouts “take me as I am.”  When you let your image down, you actually let your Self down – even though you may not be aware of it.  The person you see in the mirror each day speaks volumes to you before you head out the door. You may look in the mirror, sigh and say, “Aw, what does it matter” or smile and shout “Yes! I’m going to conquer the world today?” You don’t need a crystal ball to predict your future; all you need is a mirror.

by Susan Burke March

 Surprisingly Unhealthy Foods: What to Choose Instead! What to eat?  Seems like a simple question, but it’s one that can vex even the most savvy eater, especially when trying to make sense of food packaging.  How many times do you browse the grocery aisles trying to discern the “best” pasta, cereal or bread?  Most concerned healthy eaters know the obvious, like there is no fruit in “Froot Loops.”  But what about “grown up foods”?
