SodaStream International has entered into an unfortunate strategic alliance with Bethenny Frankel’s Skinnygirl brand. I was dismayed to read that SodaStream International, leading maker of beverage carbonation systems for homes, has entered into a strategic alliance with Housewives of New York and beverage mogul Bethenny Frankel and her Skinnygirl brand.

Now, while smoothies are a delicious, special treat, they are not at all difficult to make. However, if you’ve never made one before, you may not believe me. So, I’m writing this short little post (photos included) to tell you how to make smoothies (or, at least, how I like to make them) and to let you know about one of my favorite recipes.
The other day I got into a discussion about beverages. This is a discussion I seem to get into often and it got me thinking about all of the drinks we have to choose from these days. Marketing has really done a number on our diets, and I’m pretty sure it hasn’t made them better. […]
