A couple of days ago I was sent a tweet by someone who had noticed my email signature (“Ricki Heller, PhD, RHN”) and commented on my doctorate degree (I guess she hadn’t realized I have a PhD). The funny part is that I usually consider […]

I’ve decided to offer a mini-post every once in a while, for a dish that comes together incredibly quickly or else is so simple to make that no recipe is required.

*Or, See How Much I Want to Attend Eat, Write, Retreat ?

The other day, I was bemoaning the fact that there are a bunch of cool […]
