Check with all your guests to see if they have any food allergies - food likes or dislikes. Dislikes in our family are nuts in foods and coconut in anything. Allergies include green bell peppers. Those don't slow me down. If I am using nuts and coconut in a recipe, I usually keep a small portion separate without these. Same with bell pepper. See Kathy's Korner for some of my holiday recipes. Enjoy!

A lot of people have been questioning me about a diet that is hitting the news again. The MACROBIOTIC Diet. How does it work? Will it really turn around cancer? Does it really help diabetes, MS?

In my opinion - and it is my opinion - it probably does all those things to some degree by promoting healthier eating habits if nothing else.

A lot of the principles of this diet and the acid/alkaline diet are to bring the body's pH into an alkaline state so it can properly heal itself. Both diets push lean meat, lots of fruits and vegetables and some grains in different list of priority. In my opinion, either of these plans would be a good place to start of looking for a new healthier way of eating.

The last two books only have a small amount about pH, etc. I found the explanations in the Vitamin D Cure to be very easy to understand though.

Holiday Recipes

Watergate Salad
1 c. miniature marshmallows
1 pkg. (3 oz) pistachio instant pudding
1 can (20 oz) crushed pineapple with juice, undrained
1/2 c. chopped nuts of your choice (I usually use pecans or walnuts)
2 c. thawed cool whip

Combine marshmallows, dry pudding mix, pineapple and nuts in large bowl. Stir in cool whip. Chill in refrigerator at least 2 hours covered. Serve chilled.

Stuffed Celery
Stuffing can be peanut butter, cheese spread or cream cheese. Wash & dry celery stalks, cut into 3-4 inch pieces, then stuff.

Corn Casserole
1 16 oz. can of cream corn
1 c. Bisquick mix
2T Canola oil
1 egg, beaten
1/2 c. milk
6 oz shredded cheddar cheese
1 (4 oz) can mild chopped green chiles (not hot)

Mix all ingredients except chiles and cheese. Pour 1/2 mixture into greased casserole dish, spread cheese and chiles over mixture, top with other 1/2 mixture. Bake at 400F for 30 minutes, should be slightly browned on top.

Deviled Eggs
My recipe is very simplistic. Boil eggs, chill, then shell eggs. Cut each egg in half, scoop out yolks, place yolks in bowl. Mash with fork, add salt and pepper, mayonnaise and mustard to manageable spread.

Refill egg whites with yolk mixture. Yolk mixture can be put in sandwich plastic bag, snip corner and pipe yolk mixture into eggs. Sprinkle with paprika for additional seasoning and look.

English Pea Salad
2 cans (15oz) of young English peas, drained
1/2 c. shredded cheddar cheese
1 bunch green onions chopped (include some of the green tops)
1 small jar pimentos
2 hard boiled eggs, diced into small bites
2-3 T. sweet pickle relish (to taste)
1 t. yellow mustard
2-3 T. mayonnaise (to coat all the ingredients)
Salt and pepper (to taste)

Mix all ingredients. Store in refrigerator covered. I like to make it ahead of time and let flavors blend as it chills.
