Turmeric isn’t just found in the food and condiments of far flung times and continents. It is also present in your everyday bright yellow hotdog mustard. In fact it’s the turmeric that gives mustard its color, and not as we all thought (admit it!), the mustard seeds, which alone would just produce a drab gray paste. How ballpark memories would change. The creamy white bun! The succulent red-pink dog! And…urgh, what is that glumly.
For most people, ‘hot’ and ‘humid’ when combined are the very worst type of weather condition. Steamy, close (and gross!), moist climates usually mean you need to take a shower directly after you’ve taken a shower, and the only outfit that provides any degree of comfort is your birthday suit. This type of environment may be a sweaty hell for many a city-slicking delicate (including this writer), but for turmeric it’s the perfect situation.

Not only did she instill a work ethic that I carry with me to this.
“All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother,” once said Abraham Lincoln. Life doesn’t come with a manual, but if you are lucky, it comes with a mother.

And as she mothers, she plants millions of seeds—seeds of information that a daughter will carry with.

It’s only natural to clamor for comfort food during the winter months. With the chill of the winter months and snow-filled activities like skiing and skating, we pack in the calories as if we have permission to indulge until Spring returns.

With holiday parties, family dinners, decadent treats and festive drinks, it’s hard to resist the “allure of delicious” this time of year.
