Giving Back to Tulum

There are so many ways to give back to people who you love, who take care of you, who make you happy. We have been going to Maya Tulum for 12 years now. I am a firm believer in giving time, money, energy, and love directly. It is easy and often more convenient to send

Tomato Rosemary Focaccia

When it is cold outside, I love to bake bread. Lately, I have been making a lot of focaccia, which also makes in incredible pizza dough. This recipe lends itself to all kinds of creations and toppings but by far my favorite is fresh tomato, olive oil, rosemary and Kosher salt. I use a bread

Viva Mexico

You may not know that I have a love affair with the country of Mexico, it's people, and it's language. My husband and I have both traveled extensively, Steven more than I, but we both find this place to be where we as a family feel at home. My kids have been coming down here

Smile, Breath, Go Slowly

I am injured. I am not sure exactly how it happened but I am guessing that it was a culmination of events rather than just one. Like the proverbial straw that breaks the camel's back (poor camel), I had one too many small stresses. Being injured can be a time for frustration, resistance, introspection, surrender,

Cashew Cheese

Okay, that sounds weird or maybe too good to be true if you are vegan and missing cheese. The truth is, it is really quite difficult to create something like cheese without dairy, especially the hard kind. This recipe is extremely versatile and creates a cheese remenisent of soft goat cheese. It also fills the

Getting Back on My Mat Again and Again

My good friend and teacher, Beryl Bender Birch, turned 70 this October. Happy Birthday Beryl! Her long-time friend and assistant, Lori, sent out a request for stories about Beryl for a birthday book she is making. I have many stories but this is my favorite. It is something that sounds in my head frequently when

Artichoke Spinach Scampi

Artichoke Heart Scampi This is one of my favorite recipes. I make it often and you can add different veggies for color and brightness. 2 Tb Earth Balance or other vegan margarine 2 Tb olive oil up to 8 cloves of garlic, roughly chopped (I use a lot and the garlic sweetens as you cook

A Little Help From My Friends

Unlimited Energy I am not one to ask for help. In the past, when we, my family and I, have opened other businesses, I didn't need to ask (okay, I probably should have then but now, I am so much more enlightened) but this is entirely different. When I was in my twenties, I was
