I am so excited to share this recipe!  It's Visions of Sugarplums,

Polenta fries are easy to make and are golden delicious!  They're crispy on the outside and creamy on the inside.  Swing by Rook No. 17 for the recipe today!

Did you know that there's a free printable "Healthy Family Shopping Guide" for download at Rook No. 17?  It's a handy little cheat sheet to help you navigate the slick packaging in the grocery store and steer clear of nasty additives.

Swing by Rook No. 17 to learn how to make amazing French Almond Nougat Candy from scratch.  This buttery taffy is loaded with toasted almonds and is positively addictive.  The recipe is a classic, but has been updated to be made in the microwave.

Jenn Erickson (Rook No. 17)'s +1's are the things they like, agree with, or want to recommend.
I've been seeing Dr. Carlson for over a year. I have found her very genial, thorough, thoughtful, and compassionate. She always takes her time with me and seems to genuinely care.
