Detox Water

Water is one of the most beneficial things that you can put into your body, if not the most important.  On average you should be drinking 1.5 liters per day.  We have all heard of various food diets that people try but one that I am hearing about is a water detox diet.  In high school, my friends parents tried a water detox diet for a week where there nutrition came from water,  cayenne pepper, real maple syrup, and lemon – all mixed together.  The health of these diets seems ok for the short term but could quickly become dangerous if the proper research does not take place.  Attached is a list of various recipes for detox water and their benefits; including fatigue and even a hangover cure.  These detoxes should be used as a supplement to eating a healthy and balanced diet!

Fantastic French Fries

I’ve made these french fries – and they are delicious!  They’re a lot like Steak n’ Shake french fries, but better since they’re home made. They’re a bit of work, because you have to cut them so thinly and double fry them, but it’s really worth it.  They make a great side dish, but you probably won’t want to share.

Thin Fries

Question: This recipe calls for double frying the fries at different temperatures. Why might that produce a better fry (if you think that it would)?
