Raw Cauliflower Salad with Mustard Dill Dressing

Post by Susan on July 1, 2016

I love summer food. It’s easy, fresh, delicious and bursting with flavors that you only get when produce is in season. Tomatoes are sweet and juicy, cauliflowers from the farmer’s market are fresh and firm, and everything just seems to taste a little better. These days, I am making recipes that are nutrient dense and…

I was tired. And I didn’t want to cook. But I wanted something super healthy and super healing. Take-out  just never seems to fit that bill. It had to be fast, easy and delicious.

Things have been very interesting around here since I started adding recipes for cooked food to the website. As you can imagine, a few people were “horrified” and didn’t hesitate to let me know. Luckily many of you have been wonderfully supportive and are enjoying the cooked recipes, too. I love hearing your thoughts and simply love…

The winner of the book, “How Not to Die” is Deb Davis! Congratulations! Last week, we had a thunderstorm. That might not sound too exciting to most, but in the bay area, a real, honest to goodness thunderstorm (meaning one that lasts more than 2 lightening strikes) is a very rare thing. To have a…

Sometimes you come across a recipe that just screams, “You need to make a healthy version of me because I am so cool!” That is exactly what happened when I laid my eyes on a picture of red-velvet snowball cookies, from Donna Hay magazine. I was struck by how beautiful and festive they are. But…
