This recipe looks complicated but it’s really not. Its organic, good protein, low-carb, and gluten free if you are sure to get gluten free cheese, most cheese is. The two spices that may be tricky to find are Aleppo Pepper and Canella. I found them both at Dean and DeLuca in Napa- one of my […]

If You Can’t Stand the Heat…


Yesterday I took a personal ‘time out’ and retreated to the kitchen. We all have our escape, for some it’s the TV, some it’s the man (or girl) cave, for me it’s the kitchen; the kitchen is my girl cave. Creating healthy yummy food in the kitchen comes right up close to a great workout/cardio […]

Calculated Moves


Leading well is an artful craft that requires calculated moves. Living well is much the same, an artful craft that requires calculated moves. It is rare I do anything that is not calculated.
