A few years back while in my old San Francisco stomping grounds, I got adventurous and tried some basil gelato. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, but ended-up really liking it. Why does basil seem like a strange dessert ingredient to us when we are so accustomed to adding mint to so many desserts? Basil works in this sorbet…it really, really works. Combined with citrus it is the perfect refreshing dessert to top off [...]

I am all about trying to eat healthier, and sneak in healthy ingredients when I can. My family doesn’t always like the experiments, and sometimes roll their eyes at me, but I still have to try! That is exactly how these Quinoa Veggie Burgers came to be. My husband likes quinoa, and I am always looking for more ways to use it.

I definitely enjoy the occasional coffee. While coffee is acidic, I do not worry about it because the rest of my diet tends to be very alkaline (click HERE to learn more about acid / alkaline [...]

I am just going to put this out there, you can love me or hate me for it. I am not a fan of the traditional Rice Krispie Treats. I know, it is completely un-American. I like marshmallows on their own, but there is just something about them, all stringy and messy that I just am not a huge fan of. But I really like the idea of them! No bake, ready in 10 minutes, [...]
