OK, so it may be dark and dreary, and you may be
ready for the sunshine, but I promise you, no
matter what......Spring IS just around the
Many of us think about Spring cleaning our homes
this time of year. What about Spring
cleansing our body? We get rid of the
junk and clutter in our homes, we change the oil in
our cars to make them run better, and we brush our
teeth and visit our dentist to keep them pearly
white. But have you thought about what's
happening inside your body? We are bombarded
with toxins on a daily level. Our food is depleted
of essential nutrients. Many are overweight,
stressed, and lack the energy they need to perform
at their best each and every day. Read our
article on healthy cleansing
for the body.

few days, so be sure to check out what we're

Signing With Your Baby or Toddler
It's not surprising that babies can learn how to sign. Both
of language and their motor
skills develop much faster than their ability
to speak. And they love to mimic: Most babies, for
example, discover how to wave and point long before they can
say "bye bye" or "look at that!"
The idea of taking this one step further and teaching babies
a vocabulary of signs was inspired by child development
expert Joseph Garcia.
Having discovered how easily hearing babies of deaf parents
learned sign language, he also noticed that these babies
appeared less demanding than babies who didn't know sign
language because they could express their thoughts and needs

Cranberry Pecan Lime Tart (serves
This recipe, created by Wendy Roberts, won Best
Dessert in VT's 2011 Chefs' Challenge. As a kid,
Roberts loved baking holiday cookies for her
neighbors. "I realized I really liked the joy it
brought to other people," she says. That's why she
enrolled in a baking and pastry program and left her
desk job to work full-time for a bakery. Wendy
thought up this version of a pecan tart while
rushing to make dessert for a party. Lime vodka
"leaves behind a lighter, crisper flavor" than
whiskey in the rich, chewy filling.
1 1/2 sticks (6 oz.) butter or margarine,
1/3 cup sugar
1 large egg yolk
1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
4 large eggs
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1/3 cup light corn syrup
1/3 cup molasses
2 Tbs. lime vodka
1/2 tsp. salt
3 Tbs. unsalted butter, melted
3/4 cup chopped pecans
1/3 cup chopped dried cranberries
1/8 tsp. grated lime zest
1. To make Crust: Cream butter and
sugar in bowl with electric mixer 3 minutes, or
until smooth and fluffy. Add egg yolk and vanilla,
and beat until smooth. Add flour 1 cup at a time,
beating until just combined and dough comes
together. Knead dough with hands 3 or 4 times, then
shape into flat disk. Press dough disk onto bottom
and sides of 10-inch tart pan with removable bottom,
and freeze 2 hours, or overnight.
2. To make Filling: Preheat oven to 350°F. Beat
eggs in large bowl until frothy. Whisk in brown
sugar, corn syrup, molasses, vodka, and salt until
sugar dissolves. Beat in melted butter. Fold in
pecans, cranberries, and lime zest with spatula.
3. Remove Crust from freezer, and place in center
of baking sheet. Spread Filling in Crust, making
sure cranberries and pecans are evenly distributed.
Bake tart 35 to 45 minutes, or until Filling is set
and Crust is golden-brown. Cool in pan before
unmolding and serving.
