Have you ever read, Sarah Dessen’s book, The Moon and More?  I am addicted to Young Adult fiction, just ask our local librarian.  I have read and loved every one of her books.  Sarah Dessen has created a town in her books and if you read them in order, certain characters reoccur in each book.  But anyway, back to the topic at hand.

A few weekends ago, we had the pleasure of attending the Philadelphia Travel and Culinary Expo.   Now, if there’s two things my husband and I love in life, it’s food and traveling.  We are always trying new recipes and going out to new restaurants.  Plus, we go on road trips as frequently as possible.  This expo was right up our alley.

My husband is on a low carb diet and sometimes that and the Paleo diet go hand in hand.  The Paleo Chef By Pete Evans is not one of those times.  However, I’m not going to denigrate the book based on that statement alone. I love the photography in the cookbook and the recipes sound absolutely amazing.  However, most of these ingredients would require a special (not to mention costly) trip to the store for us.  Plus, having two young children on top of that, I can’t see The Paleo Chef keeping a permanent place in our family meal plan.…
