My talented friend, Marta and I collaborated on these shots taken on a recent roadtrip to Nashville. I made the headress and she took the shots. Fun.

Cleaning the Closet

Cleaning the closet out can be fun. Look what I found today. Yes, I’ve painted a mini velvet Elvis or two in my life.

YumUniverse™: Soft Launch

Psst! This is where I have been spending most of my time the past eight months—the YumUniverse. Last Tuesday, I soft-launched my new website resource for dairy-free, meat-free, soy-free and mostly gluten-free livin’. What a colossal amount of work. We are now planning our launch party, which should be locked down any day now and once that date/locale are determined, we will make the official launch announcement. Until then friends, come by and say “hello”.

We have 50+ recipes so far, tons of resources, a shop, glossaries—everything to make a healthy diet that much easier.

Read about why I started this site. And also read about our talented and varied group of contributors.

Try some of our recipes...

and learn how to prepare unique ingredients...

Whatever you dive into, let us know what you think and what you’d like to see on YumUniverse. That’s what it’s there for!

My old cat Zoom (21.5 years old) is the coolest. She likes to be vacuumed.
