I am going to venture to guess 99% of you are going to ignore this and any other post about The Bachelorette. So this post is really for the 1% ers. No, not those 1% ers.

We all ordered the Trust Me (how very fitting for today's topic), and while I would normally order the same as the Professor, Bella and Lolo- since my little cholesterol discovery, I opted to get the Toro and Salmon … Continue reading I Almost Cheated….
Sweet Beet was the nickname I gave to one of my ex-boyfriends. Thank goodness sweet beets aren't just a dude. As you know, I receive a basket of goodies from Farm Fresh to You every other week.
