If you’ve got someone in mind you’d like me to approach for an interview, please shoot me an email at rickiATrickihellerDOTcom, or leave a comment […]

Grown Up Superfood Cookies

It doesn’t happen often, but still, there are some days when I think, “Man, getting older sucks.” (And then I quickly remember, “but it beats the alternative.”).

Still, I find it’s a common occurrence lately to wake up the morning after a workout and feel my muscles aching as I climb […]

Grain-Free, High Protein Raw Cookie Dough Snack

One of the fundamental principles taught in English 101 is the essay “thesis statement”–that’s your stance on an issue, your argument, your point of view. When I first learned how to craft a thesis, my professor was very clear: never choose a topic related to life-or-death issues, because the goal of […]

I Never Met a Tim Tam I Didn’t Like

Okay, so I’ve actually never met a real Tim Tam. In fact I hadn’t ever even heard of these dreamy, ethereal treats until Johanna posted about them on her blog, almost a year ago, now.

*Or, Why We No Longer Celebrate Halloween in the DDD Household

[Don’t be scared. It’s really tasty!]

When the HH and I first lived together, our home in an older, mostly run-down neighborhood wasn’t exactly child-friendly. I vividly recall one sweltering summer’s evening as we lay sprawled in our bed, windows […]

[Regular raw cookie dough balls mixed with a few Irish-inclined ones (green courtesy of spirulina)].

No, it’s not your imagination; there has not been a single St. Patrick’s Day-themed recipe previously posted on this blog. It’s not that I’m opposed to them–after all, at least […]

“It’s a Keeper” Butterscotch-Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

When I first met the HH way back in 1997, he was dabbling in astrology. I don’t mean the kind of horoscopes you read in the daily newspaper or receive each morning on twitter. No, I mean the kind of astrology that involves a mega-detailed analysis such as casting a natal chart, […]

Wellness Weekend, Holiday Edition! (December 22-26, 2011)

Holiday time is here! After waiting patiently throughout the year, this week people will celebrate Christmas and continue to celebrate Hanukkah. (Have you got all your shopping done yet? Me, neither).

It may be a cliché to say it, but blogging has truly changed my life, and I am so thankful […]

Everyone Deserves Cookies for the Holidays!

Do you remember what it felt like when you were young, when it seemed everyone else had something you didn’t (but you wished you did)? As a gradeschooler, I watched from the sidelines as my friends zoomed around the neighborhood on their new banana-seat bicycles (my parents told me they couldn’t […]

Baked Granola “Haystack” Cookies

[A plate of detox-friendly cookies! In the background, the ailing azalea plant my cousin gave me. Any advice on how to keep it alive?]

Are you a fan of granola? For most of us, the mix of (usually) oats, nuts, seeds and raisins or dates is very alluring. I […]
