Astrology-based dishes may bring about optimal bliss. Depending on the planetary alignment, the Sun and the Moon, we can prepare delicious recipes to help the capriciousness of the Stars!

The Full Moon is upon us this Friday. This past week I was reminded that we are both teachers and students. With Venus shinning bright upon us, we are reminded that Love is to Fear what darkness is to light, when one is present the other disappears. These are the words of Marianne Williamson. I wholeheartedly agree. Even Greek mythology states that Venus, the goddess of Love, was born out of an act of hate and fear perpetrated by Cronos on his father Uranus. Can we rise up to the occasion and demonstrate that love can be a more powerful way to achieve all we want?

When love is present miracles do start to flow because it is our fears that imprison our thoughts and thus, our actions. As Easter Sunday comes, regardless of your religious views, let us focus on what love can do as we find the miracle within to conquer our own fear. My Savory Sweet Potato & Pecan Flan seeks to provide you with a piece of heaven that you can make with a lot of love for someone you love this weekend as you commemorate the end of Lent.
