Research has Found Wine Helps Fight Cavities


Red wine may actually protect the integrity of your teeth.

Compounds in red wine is effective at eradicating bacteria that like to linger on teeth and gums.
When the polyphenols present in red wine were combined with an oral probiotic that encourages the growth of “good” bacteria, Streptococcus dentisani, polyphenols performed even better at halting the bad oral bacteria. It’s unclear why, but it may be that the polyphenols produce molecules that keep the bacteria from hanging around.
It could lead to polyphenol-infused products like chewing gum, mouthwash and toothpaste for extra protection against bacteria.

Red wine isn’t the only thing containing polyphenols. Apples, coffee, green tea, blueberries, cherries and dark chocolate are all rich in polyphenols and don’t require ID to consume!

It is a story of the traditions and turmoils of ancient womanhood. The story is set in Biblical times and told through the eyes of a young girl called Dinah.

Poem Friday on Saturday – 08/15/2015 – You Are All The Colors Of The Rainbow

IMG_1733

You are All the colors of the Rainbow
Author:- Me his Mom

The yellow of the rainbow is the light of the sun
He was born with strength, a smile, his life just begun

The red of the rainbow is that of fire
He was born with determination and courage I admire

The blue of the rainbow is that so true
He was born loyal, impressive to those who knew

The green of the rainbow is natures beauty
He was born with the love of water, to enjoy is his duty

The many other colors of the rainbow to me is love
This kid is an honor, now a man of 43, who I respect, a gift from above

Happy birthday Jamin, you are special because I say-so
You make me proud because to me you are all the colors of the rainbow

Rose Shaped Baked Apple Dessert

This looks bloody delicious. I am going to have it for desert this week.

Made with lots of soft and delicious apple slices, wrapped in sweet and crispy puff pastry

 

2015-03-13+119+p

Ingredients: to make 6 roses
1 frozen puff pastry sheet, thawed
2 red organic apples ( red delicious)
half lemon, juice
1 tablespoon of flour, to sprinkle the counter
3 tablespoons of apricot preserve
cinnamon (optional)
powder sugar for decorating (optional)

Preparation time: 45 minutes
Directions:
1. Thaw the puff pastry if you haven’t done so yet. It should take 20-30 minutes.
2. Prepare a bowl with some water and the lemon juice. Cut the apples in half, remove the core and cut the apples in paper thin slices, as shown in my picture. Leave the peel so it will give the red color to your roses. Right away, place the sliced apples in the bowl with lemon and water, so that they won’t change color.

3. Microwave the apples in the bowl, for about 3 minutes, to make them slightly softer.
4. Unwrap the puff pastry oven a clean and lightly floured counter. Using a rolling pin stretch the dough a little, trying to keep it in a rectangular shape. Cut the dough in 6 strips.
5. In a bowl, place three tablespoons of apricot preserve with two tablespoons of water. Microwave for about one minute, so that the preserve will be easier to spread. Spread the preserve on the dough.
6. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Drain the apples.
7. Place the apples on the dough, as shown in my picture. Sprinkle with cinnamon if you’d like.

10. Do the same for all 6 roses. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for about 40-45 minutes, until fully cooked. Sprinkle with powder sugar.

Looks fabulous worth the try and very impressive to guests I should imagine
