A note about serious food allergies
New year, new you, and it's time to get on that hip stationary bike and pedal off all the holiday season excesses… after one last excess. How can you resist? Hearty pasta, twirled in a cream sauce that has, oh my gosh yes, bacon, with succulent shrimp and nutty, cheesy Parmesan as well? It's excessive, it's divine, it's perfect… just like this new year and this new you. After this meal. Tip: Make quick work of mincing garlic by smashing the whole clove with the side of your chef's knife. Then rock the knife back and forth, keeping the tip steady by resting your other hand over the top._
