The Know: Sweet and Salty FTW

To the man (actually, I have a feeling it was probably a woman with PMS) who first decided to mix salty and sweet all in the same bite, I tip my fedora to you. Why we don't have a chapter dedicated to you in our history books (between the first space expedition and the Civil Rights movement), I'll never know.

Body Blog: Your Post Workout Snack

After pulling on your Nikes and adding that new Jason Derulo song to your iPod, you drag yourself to the gym for an hour. It's hard to get started, you're just so tired, but twenty minutes later the endorphins are kicking in and you're feeling great.

Intro to Cooking: Fake Pinkberry

Is it just me or is life all around better when it’s sunny and fabulous outside? All the constant sunshine makes me crave ice cream!

The Know: Be Green, Fabulous and Full We all are trying to be green: wear more green, eat more green, recycle more green, earn more green. But sometimes it’s hard because we don’t know where to look for the best products. And let’s face it - some of those eco-friendly fashions have been hit with the ugly stick one too many times.

Intro to Cooking: Oreo Balls

Who doesn't love a little Southern cooking? Fried, greasy goodness? I wouldn't trust someone who didn't dream about it once in awhile. And better yet, who doesn't love a little Southern dessert? There is nothing. better. on earth. (I love you, Paula Dean!)
