The refrigerator light goes on...

Often the simplest recipes are the best. This chicken dish is sweet, savory, salty, spicy and sour. The extra glaze makes a lovely sauce especially served over the Jasmine Rice. Itís hard to tell which is best -- how simple the dish is or how good it is.

Honey and Allergies

For a long time people have thought that eating local honey would help with allergies.  Unfortunately, it doesnít appear that this is the case.  

There is a beautifully designed study performed by Dr. T.V. Rajan at the University of Connecticut where participants ate either local non-filtered honey, pasteurized honey or corn syrup with honey flavor.  Ten different allergy symptoms were measured.  There were no differences between the two groups that ate the honey and the group eating the placebo honey.
