Green Bean “Fries”

Green Beans Fries_1

I learned a very valuable parenting lesson a couple years ago when I conducted a little McCarrot Fry experiment on my kids.  The big takeaway was this: brand names and packaging are very powerful weapons in a parents’ war on picky kids.  In my particular case, my 4 year old, Luke, is the picky eater […]

Kaempferol and an Anti-Ovarian Cancer “Green” Smoothie

Green Smoothie Recipe

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 […]

Gluten-Free Vegan French Onion Dip, Football Party Food (and a few giveaway winners)

Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Egg-Free, Vegan French Onion Dip

Since going dairy-free earlier this year there have been few things I actually miss (I’m not vegan but we don’t eat dairy and my son is allergic to eggs).  Which is really quite surprising to me seeing that it wasn’t too long ago that I could put back nearly a gallon of milk a day.  If […]

Candied Sweet Potatoes
