[Yep, another raw bar. . . and so soon! But there’s a good reason. . . ]
Well, it’s finally happened: after years of needless anxiety before every annual medical check-up (only to be told each time that nothing’s wrong). . . this time, something was […]
In the past, I’ve always thought of radishes as kind of a poor cousin to beets: smaller and more anemic, they obviously missed out on the family jewels. Without well-heeled connections or an established vocation, they’re much like the street punk with the pugilistic attitude, slamming your jaw […]
[EDIT, February 2012: You all know I love Ellen DeGeneres, right? And Ellen loves this recipe! I couldn’t be more thrilled that she decided to share on her Going Vegan with Ellen page. Thank you, Ellen! 😀 ]
Sometimes, you just want to eat something now. I’ve decided to offer a mini-post every once in […]
In my imagination, I’d love to live on a farm. I say “in my imagination” because, in my reality, I’m actually the farthest thing from a farm type of gal (“What the-? What do you mean, 5:15 is the normal time for the rooster to crow?!!” OR, “What do you mean, it’s […]

As much as I love modern technology, I still believe there are times when good old fashioned paper-and-pen are in order. For instance, I always buy a “real” card (versus an e-card) for birthdays, anniversaries, or other special occasions (graduation, etc.), even if I send along an e-card as well. I make an effort to […]
Years ago, I had the pleasure of teaching for three semesters at Toronto’s renowned Ontario College of Art and Design (affectionately known as OCAD–or, when I taught there back in the Paleolithic, pre-“Design” era, simply “OCA”). I loved teaching at a place so much the antithesis of the college […]
For those of you who celebrated (and enjoyed a day off work), hope you all had a great Victoria Day weekend!
