Clean Hosting
       I find a lot of satisfaction in feeding people and take
great pride in serving mouth-watering meals at my table.  Cook and hostess are 2 parts of my identity
that I've cherished since I was a little girl. So when my dairy allergy and
gluten intoleran...

Re-imagined Sonoma Chicken Salad
While I believe proper nourishment deeply influences how we feel,
look and experience life, I also know how difficult it can be to find the time
to prepare three nutrient dense meals and snacks every single day. Sure, eating

Like Pavlov’s

Venus Fly Trap
By January, everyone is ready for a reset button. Carrying
around a few extra pounds, staring back at ruddy skin, and feeling lethargic

I don’t like anything getting in the way of my holiday cheer.
I’m a bit of a Christmas professional; I look at the month of December as
something to prepare for, both mentally and physically. Each year, I aim to be
rested, energized and in full holiday spir...

In Living Color
B is the most authentic, real, alive person I have ever met.
He is sensitive and passionate, his emotions lie just under the surface; they
bubble over multiple times a day in intense waves of happiness, frustration,
joy, displeasure, satisfaction, sadness, ...

Boob Tube
18 months later, I’m still a little surprised by how much back surgery
altered my path. Major surgery shifts your focus, reshapes your train of
thought, and causes you to look at every moment within each day differently.
Ironically, eye-opening revelations ...
