Life Is An Edible Adventure

Mellow. Chill. Easy Like Sunday Morning. Calm. Zen. It’s well established that I love the peaceful, light and simple. And I love food. Getting dressed up for a special dinner is incredibly lovely—and I can transform easily—but my comfort level is somewhere between margaritas, tacos and a BIG bowl of soup. I prefer an outdoor… Read More

Cup Is Half Full

When my kids visit I always want to have breakfast here at the house. With the dogs. And in PJ’s. That’s our all time FAVORITE! Our family loves breakfast foods and it’s tops on our list for meal times together. We do have a few places we frequent for yummy breakfasts, and we’re always game… Read More

Bahamas Embrace

One of the benefits of living in Florida is you are just a hop, skip and a jump from the Bahamas. Either a half-day boat ride or a short flight away. If you fly on a local airline in a small 8-seater Seaplane or Cessna Caravan, it’s much like sightseeing instead of a means of… Read More

Bloom Where You’re Planted

I rarely mention where I’m from. My formative years were spent in two places: Smithtown, New York and Satellite Beach, Florida. Smithtown is a town on the North Shore of Long Island, and anyone from Long Island knows it’s sorta cult-like. People from there have an instant connection with each other. We have our own… Read More


easy gluten free hot soup in the summer recipe

Hot Soup in the Summertime

“Them summer days, those summer days!” Hot soup in the summertime seems counterintuitive, especially in Florida. But soup can be fun and comforting when the afternoon storms kick up and you’re indoors. I love going completely pure for a few days after traveling… with LOTS of water and veggies. Salads or vegetable soup are both… Read More

Perspective is Everything

Idealist. Realist. Optimist. By now you probably know that I’m always putting my efforts into being optimistic. I like to see the sunny side of EV-ER-Y-THING. Last week I went on a liveaboard boat trip to the Bahamas, aka paradise, with two dear friends and 5 others whom I didn’t know. Everyone got along nicely,… Read More


escape with a book or movie siddhartha the alchemist

Escape With A Book or Movie

Checking out with an inspiring book or a funny movie is like Medicine for the Soul. I love the actor Will Ferrell in the movie Elf because he takes me away. I temporarily escaped with this funny, gregarious and childlike actor just by popping on Netflix. Movies are good for this—especially good ones—and we all… Read More


celiac thai food gluten free m&m thai cafe boca

Thai is Why!

My weekend was lovely! Not because I had Thai food (twice!) from the same local spot, but because it was THE WEEKEND and I was lucky enough to spend my entire Saturday and Sunday in the sparkling Florida sunshine. The weekend ramped up when I went to dinner at M & M Thai Café—owned and… Read More

Avocado: The Power of One

If the power of one little thing can make you look and feel so much more healthy, then it shouldn’t surprise you that ADDING more of a good thing can make you feel even more healthy! Vegetables are my one little thing. Especially—even though they are technically a fruit—avocados. Avocados are a real power food.… Read More


ciroc vodka gluten free spirits

Ciroc

I had do idea Ciroc was Ciroc and that it would rock my socks! I’ve been such a loyal Woodford girl that I almost missed out on this delicious spirit. On a recent business trip we heard all about it from a friend’s wife who also has celiac. It’s her favorite drink. I tried it… Read More
