My paella is not traditionally Spanish. It is more like a Portuguese dish in the sense that it combines seafood and meat. But I’ve been making it for years and it is a family favorite—one that, I might add, I often serve to guests. Served with crusty bread, a simple green salad and some good white wine, it makes a perfect Friday night dinner with friends. Gluten-Free Friendly
Large skillet or paella pan
1 red bell pepper, roasted (see Tips, page 166 in book)
4 cups chicken stock
1/8 tsp saffron, crumbled
2 tbsp olive oil 30 mL
Tagine is the name for a type of earthenware vessel as well as the stew-like dishes that are cooked in it. They are popular throughout North Africa and differ among locales. This one is my own invention, but the addition of harissa gives it a Tunisian spin. I love the juxtaposition of hot and sweet flavors. It is easy enough to make for a weeknight meal, but with a tiny bit of dressing up, it is also perfect for guests (see Tips, below). Gluten-Free Friendly
2 tbsp olive oil
3 lbs bone-in skin-on chicken pieces, cut into serving-size pieces (breasts and large thighs halved)
2 onions, thinly sliced on the vertical
Approximately 20 years ago I received a telephone call from a physician in California. He was interested in speaking with me about my treatment of cancer with high doses of ascorbic acid (Vitamin C). He had heard from the manufacturer who produces the intravenous form of Vitamin C that I was utilizing this treatment in animals with cancer.
Who wants better health, greater wealth and more rewarding relationships? The real question is “who doesn’t?” Why do some seem to easily attain all they desire, while others are left with constant yearning? You can gain the answer to that question through better understanding of what is commonly known as the “Law of Attraction.”

Vinegar is often touted as the magical liquid fit for every job. It can remove mold, soothe a rash or sunburn, and make your toilet bowl shine. The humble liquid can also help prevent the spread of infections like the flu when used properly. But the praised cleaner can’t do everything. Here are nine times to put down the bottle and look for another cleaning solution.
CLEAN STONE COUNTERTOPS
Don’t ruin your beautiful countertops or stone tiles with vinegar! Vinegar is 5 percent acetic acid, and that’s enough to damage or etch your marble, granite, limestone, travertine, or concrete tiles. Vinegar can also remove the sealant on your countertops or tile and make it more prone to future stains. Instead, wash with a simple soap and water solution. Check with the manufacturer before using vinegar on man-made countertops like quartz.
When someone first calls my office and requests treatment to help them with low sexual desire, or problems with sexual functioning,
