Duchenne Smile – do you know it? I know I talk about smiles a lot, but they really make life sweeter!
Duchenne smile is a sincere smile, named after the French neurologistDuchenne de Boulogne, a pioneer in researching the science of electrophysiology. Basically two specific facial muscles must work together to produce a genuine smile: the zygomatic major muscle – it turns the corners of the lips up – and the orbicularis oculi muscle– itcontracts the eyes resulting in the appearance of distinctive wrinkles (only during the smile!) Do you recognize when a smile is fake – or not?

I cook a lot! My take on two famous dishes! Some people also write tabouli, a Lebanese salad. Baked white rice, you can prepare it even with leftover risotto. Please ask me if you want more details! Recipes on Vegetabible
Today we tend to smile for cameras. Let’s do it when we are mainly not posing!
Wishing you a great week with smiles! Thanks for the lovely comments!
