SophisitKat "Dessert of the Month"

Keeping with the fresh, healthy, and light way of eating for this summer heat I provide you with a yummy old school dessert but with a tad twist. Blueberries are beneficial and a healthy boost to any dessert or dish. Blueberries are a Cancer Blocker (the nthocyanins which give them their blue hue attack cancer-causing free radicals and can even block the growth of tumor cells), Bladder Aid (contain compounds that prevent bacteria from adhering to bladder walls, which helps ward off urinary-tract infections (UTI’s)), and a Skin Reviver (use in an exfoliating scrub).

Now see how dessert can be GOOD for you ;") MmmHmm

He became known as the "pioneer of ragtime" because he brought in ragtime music to the concert stage as an encore or when the audience became restless, saying "Let's put the cookies on the bottom shelf where everybody can reach them.".
