Drive Me Nuts - Event Announcement

Wow, am I excited announcing my first event. You bet it. It's as exciting as the first post I had posted. Though for a while I had been thinking of doing so, but wanted to host an event in which we have to rake our brains and create something new. And here it is - DRIVE ME NUTS. Yes go ahead and drive everyone nuts with your cooking.

Nuts – The Health Food

Nuts are generally the seeds or extensions of fruits, encased in a hard outer shell, and grow on flowering upright trees or shrubs. Nuts contain monounsaturated fat, vitamin E, folic acid, magnesium, copper, protein and fiber. They are a powerhouse of good nutrition that can dramatically reduce the risk of heart disease. They've also been shown to play an important role in helping to lower "bad" cholesterol levels and raise "good" cholesterol levels. In addition, they can help dilate blood vessels and prevent hardening of the arteries.Full of health benefits, they are now highly regarded as the health food and are an essential element of the food pyramid.

But incidentally I don't across too many ways to have my nuts other than as roasted snacks or used as additional taste in cakes and toppings and garnishing in desserts. So I thought time to put the thinking cap and what better way than as an event where we all get enriched.
