I am so vindicated. Gil Marks, Rabbi, Chef, Writer and literally a walking Encyclopedia (he wrote The Encyclopedia of Jewish Food!) told the crowd today that one only cooks with Italian flat leaf parsley.

Live from the Hazon Food Conference! Just made a vegan hot toddy, pickled my own vegetables to take home, started mung bean sprouts, made Slash her own sweet orange beeswax lip balm, and… is that enough? Phew! I’m tired.

Planning a healthy and vegan Thanksgiving, Chanukah, Xmas, Thanksgivukkah? You’re also invited to read this post if you do plan to eat turkey for Thanksgiving (or even ham for Xmas!). At my family’s table, I’ll be the only one not eating the turkey at Thanksgiving. All of my energy is going to go into making sure that everything else on the table is healthy, delicious, and relatively guilt-free! Also, I guarantee, having skipped the turkey and it’s “snoozey” effects, I’ll be the only one with energy AFTER the meal! If you want energy too, keep reading for recipe ideas!
Can you open cans and bags and pour ingredients in? Congratulations! You can make my short cut cholent! Prepare to be liberated from chopping, peeling, crying from onions…!

I love recipes where all you have to do is dump the ingredients in the pot, turn on the flame and walk away (well, not too far…).
Now that I’m freelancing and consulting on my own once again, I am being very intentional with my time management. After all, isn’t that the biggest advantage of working for yourself?
Total news BLACKOUT! That includes the radio, newspapers, tv and internet. Children will see a picture of people running in terror and want to know what happened. You don’t want that to happen. But if it does…
Drumroll…I’m back with lots of new writing to come…
