I remember perusing through Hallie Klecker’s first cookbook, The Pure Kitchen, last October while I was enjoying a little gluten free girl time with a few of my fellow bloggers in Oceanside, California.  I literally couldn’t put the book down – the gorgeous photography made my mouth water relentlessly.  I mean really, who knew that […]

Ovarian cancer remains the most deadly form of gynecologic cancer, mainly due to the fact that the vast majority of women are not diagnosed until the disease has become very advanced.  Due to its high mortality rate, it certainly makes sense to take preventative measures, especially if you have a family history and diet is […]
