I'm hosting my usual Thanksgiving celebration for over 20 friends and family members.
When I prepare my shopping list, search for recipes and scour the supermarket circulars, I am always amazed at all the warnings about what foods to serve—and what not to serve! Many items are promoted as “100% natural,” “organic” or “chemical free,” implying that anything that is the opposite is unhealthy.

Redskins Park has seen it's fair share of special visitors, but yesterday was one to remember when a local girl scout troop from Balls Bluff Elementary School arrived.
Embarking on monthly trips to local businesses to learn more about various professions, the girls came out to Redskins Park to find out what work goes on behind-the-scenes for an NFL team.
The girls received a tour of the facilities from Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation staff before hearing from numerous members of the Redskins front office including Head Chef Jon Mathieson and members of the Redskins Equipment Team.
One of the ... Read More

After a few opening remarks, our servicemen and women were broken off into two groups.
The first group spent the beginning of the event touring the Redskins practice facility before an exclusive chalk talk with Redskins players WR Andre Roberts, FB Darrel Young, S Akeem ... Read More

WOW members may be familiar with Akeem Davis on and off the field.
The Redskins Safety joined us for our Ladies Night Out event in October, running members through football drills and taking part in our exclusive Q&A.
Davis's journey to the NFL wasn't always so smooth.
After a brief stint with the Seattle Seahawks and then a full year off, all he wanted was another shot and he worked hard to get it.
Unsigned following the 2013 season, the Safety from the University of Memphis did everything he could to stay in shape and be prepared ... Read More
