Quinoa, Roasted Beet and Walnut Salad

[Little aside that has nothing to do with the rest of this entry: while glancing at WordPress stats before writing this post, I just realized that my previous entry was number 200 on this blog! Where has the time gone?? I’m really amazed that I’ve written 200 whole blog entries–seems like just yesterday […]

A Nice Chianti and Fava Beans? No. Muhammara? Thumbs Off–er, Up

I’ll never forget the phrase that haunted me for months when I was about 16: delivered in a low, undulating murmur heard through the telephone receiver, a deep, throaty male voice posed a simple question: “Have you checked the children?”

Finally, with a raging rash taking over my torso, I had to succumb and begin the diet afresh. After 15 months (so far) I’m 90% better, […]

Sweet Things (Times Three)

[Sweet Potato and Ginger Salad–recipe below.]

Ah, yes, life is sweet. Not so much in the “I’m a celebrity, I haven’t a care in the world, I’m revoltingly rich, beautiful and vacuous” kind of way; but more in the “every which way I turn I see or think ‘sweet,’ […]

Pre-Blog Entry Blog Entry

Just poking my head in now that I finally see an end to all this work. I wish I could tell you I’ve been away so long because I’ve been galavanting in Europe, or galavanting in Australia, or even galavanting in the Muskokas–but nay. Sadly, I’ve just been entangled by a monstrous pile of assignments […]

Even as I slog through my pile of assignments and tests, I’ve been sneaking in here to read everyone’s comments, with much gratitude. Thanks so much for the “ooomph” I need […]
