I wanted to prepare a dish that is easy to create at a campsite, yet packed with flavor. I found a recipe for Sausage and Bean stew over a dutch oven on myrecipes.com. I prepared this at home last night,but it’s an easy dish to combine outdoors. I added a little more heat to the recipe since I have a family of chili enthusiasts! So, I substituted the poblano chile with a serrano pepper to add anextra bump in heat.

(Analyzing mouth bacteria could lead to earlier diagnosis of pancreatic cancer and treatment. ) ADVERTISEMENT ADVERTISEMENT What it means: Tooth decay starts when certain bacteria in the mouth combine to form biofilms, communities of hard-to-kill bacteria, that then form teeth-damaging plaque and produce harmful acids. Brushing and fluoride rinses have limited effect, and many antimicrobial rinses can change the color of the gums, making it less likely people will continue to use themwhich is why researchers continue to search for more appealing alternatives. “This study is about applying something to the teeth that decreases bacteria. The effectiveness of this type of product [red wine] depends on how long it stays on the tooth, known as its ‘substantivity,’ ” says Gary L. Glasband, a dentist in private practice in Long Beach, California, who was not involved in this study. “Wine has a high substantivity, which you can see as it stains the teeth when you drink it.” This, combined with the antioxidants present in grape seeds, makes red wine effective at killing bacteria on the teeth. The bottom line: While the antioxidant effect of red wine or grape seed extract likely works to reduce cavities, its a trade-off between the pros and the cons: a reduced risk of cavities vs. stained teeth and excess calories from the alcohol, says Glasband.
