If Oprah can have a “Favorites List” then I guess we should have one too! Over the years I have shared with you my ‘must haves’ for enjoying the benefits of a plant based diet. If you have a veggie lover in your life or if you are well on your way to being a…

Fall Smoothie!

September 5, 2017

In search of new fall recipes, I ordered Salma Hage’s, The Middle Eastern Vegetarian Cookbook. Having thoroughly enjoyed my time spent pouring over recipes, I certainly located some winners. And now I am looking forward to some cooler temps (in Austin that means under 100 degrees) in order to test and share my favorites. As…

Kartoffel und Mangold

Jul 7, 2017 | 2 Comments

One of the most enjoyable experiences during my summers in Germany is preparing locally inspired meals directly from the garden and this kartoffel und mangold is a fine example of how simple ingredients with simple preparation can be so delicious. It all began when Oma, who keeps a keen eye on what is ripe and ready to eat in the garden, announced that the mangold (chard) must be eaten. Further, it was quickly determined that it would be prepared with…

Last week, I gave my family members a sincere promise that I would move on from my Indian food obsession and so, with some reluctance, I have. Now that June is rolling in and Texas produce is hitting its peak, I welcome back some old friends in the forms of shiny purple eggplants, first of the season tomatoes, and gorgeous new potatoes. With such perfect examples of summer vegetables, who else could I turn to but Yotam Ottolenghi for guidance.…

If you happened to read last week’s blog post, you discovered that my latest book Building Natural Immunity in Babies and Young Children is now in the final edits and design stage. Now comes the fun part for sure as I watch my words come to life with illustrations and designs by the uber talented Christine Terrell.

On The Homestretch & A Green Bean Salad

May 16, 2017 | 0 Comments

So, it’s come to this and I am really not sure if it’s even such a bad thing. I have a confession:  After a beautiful morning swim at Barton Springs pool, I admit I then spent a good portion of my Mother’s Day writing a chapter on the importance of babies pooping on a regular basis. Well, to be exact, the chapter is on the vital role of healthy elimination that begins at birth. I don’t know if I would…
