It’s Like Buttah!

I mentioned before that I have a love/hate relationship with Pinterest.  I love it because it allows for people to get their ideas out there on a wide scale, and it makes it so easy to find cool recipes, DIY crafty ideas, awesome ways to decorate your kitchen, and how to make a bun in … Continue reading

Cheesy Seitan & Mushroom Sandwich

Let me tell you: I’ve made some grilled cheese sammies in my day.  For a long while, I was a fromagier, first for a fancy French bistro in West Hollywood and then I was the head fromagier at a well-known cheese shop in Studio City.  You could say that I knew my cheese.  I made … Continue reading

Lemony Mustard Green & Potato Crustless Quiche

Banana Beet N’ Greens Smoothie

Do you ever wish there was a way you could stick your head inside your blender so you can clean, with your tongue, the last traces of whatever it was that you made?  No?  Just me?  Huh.  Forget I mentioned it. I was informed recently that I would be going to Maui (yay!!!) in May.  … Continue reading
