Will the Healthiest Flour Please Stand Up?

Posted on July 19, 2012

Recently it was brought to my attention that I made a rather large factual error in my post Gluten Free is Not Healthy. You see, in this post I claimed:

Gluten free goods are generally made with ingredients such as rice, corn, potatoes, sorghum, tapioca and millet, which are higher in carbohydrates and lower in protein and other nutrients than wheat flour.

I apologize, as I did make a mistake in claiming that sorghum is not as healthy as wheat flour itself. […]

Book Review: Eat Like a Dinosaur

Posted on March 7, 2012

If you’re the type of person that isn’t fooled by the growing volume of processed gluten-free goodies on grocery store shelves, you will love the forthcoming book Eat Like a Dinosaur from the Paleo Parents. This book is full of family friendly, super healthy, and may I say, super delicious, recipes. And I am proud to say that I wrote the forward to it.

You will love the recipes for 50-50 Bacon Burgers, Chocolate Chip Cookies (date sweetened) and everything in between. […]

Book Review: More Make It Fast, Cook It Slow

Posted on January 11, 2011

I must confess, when it comes to anything related to the Make It Fast, Cook It Slow cookbook, I am completely biased.

Stephanie O’Dea, the author of that book, as well as her latest tome of recipes More Make It Fast, Cook It Slow: 200 Brand-New, Budget-Friendly, Slow-Cooker Recipes is a good friend of mine.

I met Stephanie at Blogher Food 2010.  I did not know a soul at the entire conference (though Shirley and Diane were kind enough to take […]

Giveaway: Around My French Table

Posted on December 30, 2010

Just in case I didn’t make it perfectly clear from my Spiced Pecans and Cinnamon Pecan Brittle posts, I’m madly in love with Dorie Greenspan’s latest book Around My French Table –it’s quite a collection of recipes.

Giveaway: Grain-Free Baked Goods and Desserts

Posted on December 23, 2010

Today I’m giving away a copy of The Spunky Coconut Grain-Free Baked Goods and Desserts: Gluten Free, Casein Free, and Often Egg Free by Kelly of The Spunky Coconut.  This is an amazing cookbook, whether you’re gluten free or not.  I love Kelly’s food.  It’s delicious and I find her cooking just a bit healthier than mine –which is a good thing.

I had the luxury of eating actual recipes from this book made by Kelly herself.  They were all delectable.  My […]

Book Review: Food Heroes

Posted on December 6, 2010

I had the privilege of listening to the lovely, brilliant and beautiful Georgia Pellegrini speak on a panel at Blogher Food 2010.  Afterwords we chatted for a bit and Georgia was kind enough to give me a signed copy of her book, Food Heroes: 16 Culinary Artisans Preserving Tradition.

I promptly devoured this book and highly recommend it to all folks that are interested in where our food comes from, along with great writing (and recipes too!).  This tome of […]

Book Review: Half The Sky

Posted on November 24, 2010

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving day.  And I have so very much to be thankful for.  Yes, life has its challenges, however, today, I am focused on gratitude and all of the many blessings I have.

First, I am so thankful for my amazing husband and my 2 delightful (and oh so helpful and cooperative) boys. Second, though maybe not even in that order, I am thankful for my health, especially given all of the challenges I have faced in this arena.  Getting […]

Book Review: Fast Food Nation

Posted on April 3, 2007

Eric Schlosser examines the birth of fast food culture in this captivating survey of postwar America.

Fast Food Nation reveals the impacts of this industry on our country, taking a hard look at how fast food has lead to the homogenization of our society, hastened the “malling” of our landscapes and lead to the systemic exploitation of the teenage workforce.

Schlosser reveals frightening information regarding the unsanitary conditions of fast food production. He also uncovers the industry’s efforts to entice the […]

Book Review: The Way We Eat

Posted on March 1, 2007

Peter Singer, a bio-ethicist at Princeton University and Jim Mason, who grew up as a fifth generation farmer, have written this book, an engaging tell-all about the origins of the food in your fridge.

Their voyage literally begins at the dinner table of three average American families with differing tastes and socio-economic backgrounds and continues as the authors set out to trace the provenance of the foods we eat, with stops along the way to check out the validity of labels […]
