Who is having a BIG Thanksgiving this year??  Me me me!!  I can’t wait!!  I am very excited to take my own Thanksgiving Bootcamp starting THIS week because I need a little refresh for this holiday.  It has been exactly 2 years since I have entertained on this scale and I need to sharpen my skills!  Who wants to join me???  I will have you so prepared for Thanksgiving that you will be giddy with anticipation for the big day and totally prepared for any massive cooking holiday in the future!  For my community, use the code TDAY100 for $100 OFF this course.  I had people write me emails after last year’s Thanksgiving with tears of joy streaming down their faces!  I only host this once a year!

Also, I am repeating my favorite bootcamp of all this week, Plant-Based 2.0!  If you want to deepen your plant based cookings skills so you never need to buy a Plant-Based cookbook, this is the course for you.  You’ll be able to convert any recipe with animal products to a plant-based version.  You don’t have to be 100% plant-exclusive or vegan to benefit from this course.  Use the code YESPB2 for $100 off this course!  Here’s your dinner planner for the week:Continue reading

Dinner Planner – Week of September 20th, 2021

I hope you had a nice holiday if you celebrated this week!  I really liked the menu I put together for our break fast on Yom Kippur.  I also made my challah recipe into rolls (1 recipe made 9 rolls) and I made Jake Cohen’s “Perfect Challah” which was a beautiful color because it called for honey + sugar, but it was way too sweet and not salty enough.  In case you’re always looking for the perfect challah recipe.  I think mine is pretty pretty good!  For dinner, in addition to some traditional deli stuff, I made spanakopita, sweet noodle kugel, vegan lasagna, mejadra, roasted vegetable salad, farro with roasted tomato vinaigrette, and olive bar chickpea salad from QTQ.  Here’s your dinner planner for the week:Continue reading

Dinner Planner – Week of September 13, 2021

I have made it through two weeks of school lunches!!! Considering I had set my alarm clock 4 times in a year a half and made zero school lunches, I think I’m doing great!  I’m sure my son’s senior year of high school is off to a great start, too LOL.

This week I completed Week 1 of the Raising Healthy Eaters bootcamp and I am thrilled with the two groups participating and the supportive energy we have going!  If you’re trying to plan ahead, the bootcamps I am running in October will be Plant Based 2.0 AND ….Thanksgiving!!!! Totally excited for both!  Here’s your dinner planner for the week:Continue reading

Dinner Planner – Week of September 6, 2021

I’ve been busy creating new material and content for you all!  I just uploaded the September class for those of you who take my monthly online cooking class!  I can’t stop making the recipes!!  Soooooo good!  Also,  I am so excited that my newest, never before seen BOOTCAMP is open for sign-ups!!  We start this week and it’s called Raising Healthy Eaters and it is your answer to how to raise children who have a healthy relationship with food, can make good choices when they are away from you, and how to stop being a short order cook.  If you’re new here, I raised three children (two of whom were really picky and now they’re not!), taught over a thousand students (mostly moms) in person over the years, and educated hundreds of elementary school students in nutrition and gardening.  I’ve been there, seen it, heard it, counseled, learned, and implemented my strategies FOR CHILDREN OF ALL AGES with incredible success.  I have poured all my knowledge into this course and I cannot wait to change your life!!!  For my website subscribers and my students, I am sweetening the deal with a $100 off coupon code:  KIDS100   Here’s your dinner planner for the week:Continue reading

Dinner Planner – Week of August 30th, 2021

I am back from Alaska and WOW!  What a trip.  What an experience. I was invited by the Copper River Marketing nonprofit group for an education and deeper appreciation about not just these very unique and special salmon, but the fishing families of south-central Alaska.  These fishermen and women are independent, small business owners dedicated to longterm sustainability of wild salmon stocks, the environment and a way of life. Their passion not only preserves their livelihood but also ensures an abundance of future generations of wild salmon. In case you’re interested, Coho salmon (aka Silver salmon) is in season for about another month.

In other news, I will be sending an email announcement in the next few days for sign-ups for my newest 4-week bootcamp, Raising Healthy Eaters.  You asked and I listened and delivered.  This will be an incredibly helpful course with concrete actionable strategies for raising kids who are healthy eaters.  I poured decades of hands-on experience into this course and I am so excited to share it!  Here’s your dinner planner for the week:Continue reading

Thank you for all your kind messages, emails, comments this week after my friend Andrea passed away.  It has been a very difficult time.

A year and a half ago, I was invited by the Copper River Salmon Marketing Association to “Copper River Salmon Camp,” a few days learning about my favorite fish, meeting fishermen and checking out Cordova, Alaska.  Because of the quarantine, the trip was rescheduled for next week!  So off I go for an Alaskan adventure.  I will not be doing an IG live this Monday, but please follow along on Instagram for all the Copper River fun!

I am at the end of my magical week at The Golden Door with my friend Melissa.  We have been here three times together and we are already wondering when we can come back.  This was a tough year for a lot of people.  Do what you can to take some time for yourself even if it’s a hike in nature or 15 minutes of meditation.  And check off something on your bucket list!

For my monthly online class students, the August class is almost done being edited and will be sent to you soon!  Here’s your dinner planner for the week:Continue reading
