Whole Food Plant Based Lifestyle

Why I’m adopting a whole food plant based lifestyle. Health and nutrition have been very important to me for about the last 30 years. I have not led the healthiest lifestyle, that ‘s for sure! Coming into my teenage years in the middle of the Vietnam War debacle definitely...

Black Tea Cheese Puffs

These puffs are a cross between muffins and scones. They contain neither eggs nor added fat, but they actually rose and came out rather beautiful! If you use matcha green tea, you could make these for St. Patrick’s Day! They’d be awesome next to a traditional Corned Beef Dinner!...

Jamaican Hominy Corn Porridge, Instant Pot Recipe

Thai Spice Blend

I developed this Thai Spice Blend because we love to grill ribs and chicken wings and we like to vary the flavors. Thai is one of my favorite cuisines where it balances hot, sweet, tangy and salty flavors so well. This isn’t a curry spice, but a tasty change...
