Good Seafood Needs Classy Holiday Recipe

Assembly line eating

By Ken Washington - December 10, 2018


I'm not a number! Assembly line eating it's not for me. How often during the year and as especially during the holiday season do you feel when you go to your favorite restaurant that the order of business is drinking appetizer main course dessert please leave so we can turn this table over? Think about it! According to many psychologists, cooking is also a therapy that reduces stress and provides relaxation to the mind after a stressful day out. Done right with good friends or fun family member can make for a very nice dining experience.  In a world that can sometimes be out of control, this is a great way to feel that you have total control over this meal. And why not have control over things that make us feel better which is the food we nourish our bodies. Let's provide you with a classy and easy recipe for just that purpose and it's fun to make. Chill & enjoy.
