Warning: Shameless, shameless, shameless self-promotion is about to ensue. A few months ago my friend Sharmin Meadows, who writes a blog called What You’re Missing KC!, recorded a short video with me at the kitchen downtown I was teaching cooking classes out of at the time. Since the film was shot that building has been [...]

This has to be one of my favorite meals, vegan or not. It’s even better in the summer when the vegetables are in season and you can wash it down with a glass of crisp white. By the way, still on the Daniel Fast. One. More. Week. So, here’s the meal. First I make homemade [...]
I threw this recipe together for my mom’s birthday party and everyone raved about it so I promised to share the recipe. That was two weeks ago. At the time I made it my fridge was full of vegetables that I needed to use up and since I fell victim to my own overcommitting nature [...]
One of the highlights of starting my own business of making organic meal kits has been carefully deciding what ingredients I am going to use in them. I want it to be over the top in the sense of where I’m buying my food from and not so much in how fussy or pretentious the [...]
Continuing with the Farmer’s Market series, BADSEED Friday Night Farmer’s Market is on the radar this week. I also want to share a summer time recipe that I have been enjoying every single day – Raw Squash “Pasta”. It’s light, delicious, and seriously simple to make.

Koinonia Farms is a rural Christian community founded in 1942 and is the birthplace of Habitat for Humanity, as well as, many other peacemaking, social justice organizations. Rich in history (particularly around the Civil Rights era) and [...]
Several people have mentioned lately that their weekend meals can become quite interesting. I thought it was just me. Monday is the day our weekly Door to Door Organics boxes are delivered up north, so the days leading up to Monday means that you have to make room for what’s coming. It’s kind of fun. I’ve [...]
I am sure I could have came up with a more clever title than “Mexican Fiesta”, as it does not at all begin to describe the food Tonya and I made last night for our monthly class with the IMX=Pilates group. We’re not talking about the fat-laden, Americanized version of Mexican cuisine that is covered [...]
I’ll start off by stating the obvious – I’m a week behind. I’ve been tied up with a couple of projects this week and haven’t had much spare time to think. Better late than never, though, right? I kind of had a theme going on with my cooking last week of quick standby’s that can be [...]
