Forget fries... would you like a side of death with that soda?

My eldest daughter, Syd, ate sashimi at age three. Devouring tentacles while slurping down pasta and squid, her nickname evolved and "Squid" has always been an excellent eater with an adventurous palate.
She begged me to try chocolate covered ants and had a field day in the Harry Potter store popping “Barf,” “Booger” and "Earwax” jellybeans. No doubt, she’ll grow up to be one of those obnoxious foodies, taking Instagram pictures of her Matcha Tiramasu or Pork Wagu.

The holiday season is a time for celebrations, family, friends, traditions... and, if you’re not careful, weight gain.
With more than 7 million people out of power in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, there's another important danger to consider - and it's inside your fridge!
No electricity means card games by candlelight, but it also means tons of spoiled food when refrigerators and freezers stop working.
Halloween is known for being a scary time of year, but as registered dietitians and moms - the most frightening part for us is that the average trick-or-treater consumes about 3 cups of sugar (4,800 calories!) on Halloween night alone.
