The Ultimate Spring Fruit – Strawberries! Organic, of course!

Strawberries, blackberries, blueberries and raspberries are some of our favorite springtime fruits and you'll find plenty in your local supermarkets. Unfortunately, those beautiful fruits have a secret... many contain high levels of pesticides.

Grilled Shrimp – Celebrating Summer’s End

Summer is waning and the days are shorter but sweeter. Even the sunset seems longer and lazier.  It’s still warm enough to fire up the grill for some turkey burgers, but it’s not quite time to bring out the pumpkin spices or the mugs for hot tea.  Leisurely evening walks on the beach or through [...]

Cooking With Cinnamon

Autumn is one of my favorite seasons—not for crisp air or the dusting of snow on the mountain peaks— but for the warm and spicy aromas flowing out of homes and stores.

Enjoy Southwestern Flavors Again – Low Acid Style

When you think of dishes from the southwestern U.S., do you think of burning hot chili peppers and acidic tomatoes? I do too-- but the flavors of the region are so much more than that!

Creative Ways With Seafood

When the weather warms it’s refreshing to just go outside and get some exercise... which starts me thinking of lighter meals with less fat or sugar.
