CARAMEL,APPLEANDCHEDDARGRILLEDCHEESE

Love grilled cheese? Then this is for you! Close to a traditional grilled cheese, with cheese that doesn’t ooze quite as much. The caramel sauce takes it into dessert territory without making it overly sweet.

INGREDIENTS: Unsalted butter 2 slices white bread 1 tablespoon caramel sauce Granny Smith apple slices (about 1/4 apple) 3 to 4 slices mild cheddar cheese

DIRECTIONS: 1. Spread the caramel sauce on one slice of bread. Top with several apple slices. Place the cheddar cheese on the other slice of bread. Close the sandwich and butter both sides of the bread. 2. Place a skillet over medium heat and allow it to get hot. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until the bread is nicely toasted and the inside of the sandwich is melted. 3. Enjoy your grilled cheese!

3HEALTHYEATINGRULESFROMADIETICIAN Ever wonder how the healthy eating experts live? Do they really follow the rules they set out for everyone else? According to dietician Hanlie Jordaan, the answer is yes! Jordaan says the first – and most important rule – is to not restrict any specific foods. Completely cutting out something you enjoy will only lead to uncontrollable cravings and overindulgence. If you love chocolate, have a small piece when a craving hits. Aside from handling the not-so-healthy foods, Jordaan advises that you really do need to eat your fruits and veggies! Try making your veggies the star of your meal. Your body will reward you for it! Plus, then you won’t feel guilt about eating that little piece of chocolate after dinner. CONCRETEARCHITECTURE From infrastructure, to commercial buildings, to retail shops, to homes – concrete architecture is everywhere. And not just as a structural element either. More and more, designers are using concrete to make a statement. Most often, concrete reads as minimalist and somewhat industrial. But that doesn’t mean it can’t also be used on a country home. Frank Lloyd Wright’s iconic Fallingwater is the perfect example of using concrete to help a building blend harmoniously with nature rather than fight against it. Website ArchDaily recently released a list of tips for those in the design world who wish to work with concrete, but anyone interested in architecture should find the information interesting. Consider its exposure to the elements to determine the mix of concrete required. Exposed concrete needs to be finished with a resin, varnish and any necessary waterproofing. It’s also essential that the concrete’s interior metalwork remains hidden from the environment as any such exposure can lead to a compromised structure.
