Do You Dig Juicing Fruits and Vegetables?

They’re gross.  They’re either too wet, overloaded with dark raisins, or they have that bourbon sauce all over it.  Yuck.  I watch friends and family members dive into restaurant made bread puddings then “ooo and awww” like it was the best thing ever.  I just […]
