Wellness Weekend, August 9-13, 2012


Welcome to this week’s Wellness Weekend! Thanks for joining in and sharing all your healthy, sugar-free and vegan recipes.  I love seeing what you whip up each week! And please feel free to share the event on twitter–I’ve shortened the hashtag to #WWknd so you can fit more about the recipe in […]


Wellness Weekend July 19-23

Happy Thursday, and Happy Wellness Weekend! It’s summer here, which means people are taking time to play outdoors, go on vacation, stay away from the kitchen. . . and basically have as much fun as possible! But that hasn’t stopped any of you from creating mouth-watering, fabulous food. And you shared lots of […]


Kitchen Classics: Kale Salad, Fully Loaded

[The photo that started it all. . .. ]

It’s been a crazy couple of weeks here in the DDD household, what with mega-marking for my classes at the college, a whirlwind trip to Montreal (more on that anon), the regular array of doctor’s appointments, a quick visit […]


Super Salad Soirée (and Kombucha Recipe)!

[Our potluck salad feast!]

Last week, I alluded to the annual potluck I host for my nutrition buddies. As it turned out, 2011 was the first time in eight years that I missed it (why thank you horrible flu, awful weather, and chaotic schedule with 200 student assignments to […]


Grilled Romaine with Sweet and Smoky Dressing–and Sayonara, Dole Summit

Along with my final recap of the Dole Summit festivities, I decided to share this Grilled Romaine with Sweet and Smoky Dressing recipe today because, well, I’ve been pouting about it for days now (which can really make your lips tired after the first 7 or so hours).

Okay, so I […]


Salad Squared at the Dole Summit: Salad Samplings, Salad Ballet and Salad Recipe

[My own creation, inspired by our group’s favorite sample salad. See recipe, below.]

After a whirlwind three days at the Dole Salad Summit, I finally woke up yesterday in my own bed.  Glancing out the window, it seemed to me that something was a little “off”: the sky outside looked just […]


Olive-Quinoa Salad with Olive Shortbreads (Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Vegan)

Some decisions in life are just no-brainers.  Did I wish to get a second dog after Elsie?  Uh-huh. Should I move in with the HH? Duh. Do I present at Nourished when asked? Uh, yeah. Will I accept when Ellen finally invites me onto her show? OF COURSE I WILL!!  And […]


Wellness Weekend April 12-16, 2012

It’s Thursday–time for Wellness Weekend–AND the much-anticipated Nourished Food Blogger Conference, which starts tomorrow!  As you read this, I am likely wending my way to the Chicago area for tomorrow’s presentation.  Looking forward to meeting many of you there!  I’ll be back next week with a recap of the events, so be sure to […]


Book Review: Vegan Holiday Kitchen

Before I begin this review–and in the spirit of full disclosure–I must confess to you all that my opinions in this blog post are biased.

No, not because I was paid to do this review (which I wasn’t); not because I received a free copy of the book (which I did); and […]


Wellness Weekend: March 29-April 2, 2012

Good Evening, Wellness Weekenders!  This past week has been a crazy melée of writing, school prep, recipe development and dealing with a disconnected muffler (we found it dragging on the driveway)–which is why I’ve neglected the blog and missed all of you! 

That’s why I’m so glad to have these weekly link-ups, […]
