Breast Cancer Awareness “Taking your life back AND MOVING AHEAD”

YOGA FROM A NATURAL: JEANIE SALLAH

I remember the moment as if it was yesterday when Brenda G. my ride-or-die buddy said, “I need you to come feel my breast”. We were at work and I was on break, she had snuck upstairs to get me alone. We went into the restroom and with no modesty she raised her shirt (she wasn’t modest then and she’s still not). I remember feeling a large hard mass but I didn’t want to sound overly alarmed, DON’T GET ME WRONG I was so scared, I just didn’t want to scare her.

Seriously, they call it “Fake” for a reason. In our youth obsessed world do you sometimes feel like your scrambling to find your place; you know-that little smidgeon of evidence to convince yourself that “YOU STILL GOT IT”? Read More

PHILLY APPLE CAKE

There’s nothing like waking up in the morning and being able to sit down to a steaming hot cup of coffee and a fresh slice of homemade cake. Well if you want that “Mama’s kitchen taste” that didn’t originate at your local grocery store, than this cake fits the bill. Thinly sliced Granny Smith Apples drenched in a cinnamon, nutmeg bath; added to a not-too-sugary batter makes this cake a delicious, moist delight.  View recipe
