    Almond flour does not have the same shelf life as say white flour or whole wheat flour. On average almond flour is really best if used in 6 months and kept in the refrigerator. I have put in freezer before, and something happens …

  • The fear, and panic to me is truly being whipped to a frenzy by the media. The facts are every single year, take any state in the USA. Old people die in Nursing homes, this is not something new. But the media is making this out to be the plague o…

  • I had updated my face picture on FB, about 3 weeks ago as my new photo. And for whatever reason. Even though I have been on FB since I never went and looked at comments or anything relating to that picture. So today I got brave and did so.
