Avocado toast is my idea of comfort food. Every once in a while I crave this perfect combination of creamy avocado, cayenne heat, salt, citrus and healthy fat.

It’s more of an assemble, rather than a recipe, but I think you’ll love it.

It occurred to me today, as I was cooking with a couple of different coconut products, that I probably use some part of this marvelous nut each day. It’s no wonder.

Actor Jeff Bridges comments, “If any other nation in the world treated their kids this way, we’d be at war.” He refers to hunger in America, an issue being brought to light by a new film called A Place at the Table. Hunger is not something normally associated with America, to the contrary, we […]

My brother-in-law is set in his nutritional ways. He makes faces at veggies, and the idea of drinking anything green makes him walk away shaking his head.

I have a long standing tradition of welcoming guests with risotto.

It began when I was in my 20′s, and I discovered the magic technique of stirring a pan of creamy rice over an open flame and inviting guests to join in to help with the stirring. Friends from uptown and down in Manhattan […]

The Best Tea To Energize, Relax, Heal Or Sleep

Tea Cupboard

Teas and warming drinks help me get through the day and, as I’ve shared, I’m not a coffee girl. I believe that almost anything can be solved by a warm cup of something.. My favorite mug, an electric tea pot, and the occasional drop of liquid stevia or raw honey is heaven in a […]

Healthy Egg Nog Recipe

egg nog

I LOVE egg nog, but the high fat, dairy version doesn’t love me back.

It makes me sick to my tummy, and it makes me feel bloated, so I had to design my own healthy version, using almond milk and my favorite sweet spices.
