About me

I love to cook and entertain. I publish an active blog at where I post ideas and recipes for healthier eating that are also natually gluten free. I live a vegetarian/vegan lifestyse and am into nutrition, wellness, and personal development.
My blog has given me a platform to share my recipes and ideas about food, healthy living, and entertaining with others. I'm grateful to all of my dedicated readers.

I plan to publish a cookbook or two in the near future.

Cooking Influences

I grew up in a family that loved to cook. As I child, I spent many a weekend cooking and baking with my mother for holidays, birthdays, and other celebrations. Food always played an important role in all of our family traditions. It still does, and I find that my home is still the hub where everyone gathers for holiday meals, birthday dinners, and celebrations.

            Hi, this looks very tasty but am concerned about all of the rice and nuts. I try to maximize the amount of vegetables with their healthful lower carb fiber - and food as low fat as possible - oil, butter, and nuts, are all super calorie dense. The amount used in the recipe is hundreds of added calories. May try with some modifications. I do a vegan staffed eggplant that works well, should work from that idea.

              Hi! ty so much for the follow :) I am so sorry I just found it now :P haven't been here in ages. I had originally started creating my gluten free recipes cause I work with kids and one of them couldn't have gluten. Since then my mom just got diagnosed with Celiac so I popped back to print these for her and there you were! Your recipes look FABULOUS! Can't wait to try! and I will be posting some more of my own :). Ty again. Have a great day!

                  Judee, Thanks for including me in the Passover group. It will be a while before I have time to post recipes but I would love to have a source for myself and to share mine. I do have some good ones. We never go hungry on Passover.

                          Hi Judee: thanks for the follow. As I get older, I'm much more aware of eating good, wholesome foods. Thanks for the recipes to help me do this. Love the header on your profile, so true, so true. Unusual spelling of your sister spells her name, Judey (after St. Jude). And her daughter just moved to PA. We will be visiting her in July. Philly cheesesteak here we come...oops, not very healthy, huh? Visit me at Thanks. N

                            I am off to work for the summer in a couple of days, and we are often able to get online. It's a bit remote.
                            However, I will try my best to keep in touch with you all in the "outside world". Have a great summer!

                                              I am very glad that you found my recipe. It is an exceptionally good cornbread recipe, Judee. I have made purely vegetarian versions of this recipe. I would suggest that you use a light olive oil for the shortening, and that you soak about 2 Tbs of a soy substitute for the bacon (like 'bacon-bits') in the oil very first thing. And now that we have connected on CES, we can trade some ideas, Judee.

                                                Thanks for the vegetarian suggestions. I'll let you know how it comes out..

                                                  Hi, Judee - did you ever make my cornbread recipe? Just wondering... A 1/2 C of GF flour is perfect - King Arthur or Domata are great. best regards & Happy New Year!
