These are some of my favorite recipes!
Double Chocolate Magic Pudding
This pudding is one of my favorites. Not only do the coconut milk and honey add an extra layer of flavor and richness, but also there’s a secret ingredient in the pudding that takes it from delicious to “moan-worthy.” Whenever I serve this pudding, it’s always received with oohs and awes and lots of “Oh. My. Go-ods.” As the coconut milk, honey, and cocoa powder simmer, I hold my hands over the bubbling pot and imagine love flowing from my heart, through my hands, and into the pot. I say an incantation that all who eat the pudding will be filled with love.

Shoot for the Stars Cauliflower Soup
I named this soup “Shoot for the Stars” because it’s so easy to make; yet, when topped with the pears and pomegranate, it looks like something you’d be served in an elegant restaurant. Dreaming big (and eating well) need not be difficult or complicated. The journey can be simple and delicious.
Garden Jungle Salad
One of the best things about planting a vegetable garden is imagining all the amazing meals that will come from its bounty in the months to come. This simple, delicious, and fresh salad is a quintessential garden salad. Most of the ingredients can be picked right out the back door. It’s wonderful at picnics.
Mango Shrimp Cakes with Avocado Aioli
Much of my cooking is based on intuition. I get an image (or flavor) in my mind, and I can’t let it go until I bring it to fruition. That was certainly true for this dish. My mom (who is not at all biased) says this dish is the very best thing she’s ever eaten. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

The Gold Star Experiment
When I was a schoolteacher, I carpooled with a woman who went to the gym every day, rain or shine. Even if she had a cold, she’d workout on the treadmill. I’m not like that. Actually, I enjoy exercise, but it just takes a lot to motivate me. Justification for not doing it flows from me with the ease of water breaking through a poorly built dam. It’s too cold, too hot, too late, too early. I’m too hungry, too full, too busy, too tired. I spend a lot of time at my computer. And when I’m not sitting at my desk, I’m usually in the kitchen tasting test batches of new dishes. Unfortunately, this is not the best recipe for optimum health and fitness. As a result, I’ve noticed that I’ve been a bit sluggish lately, and I’m getting pudgy around the middle. So, I decided to try an experiment. When I was teaching French to elementary school-aged children, I used a reward system that worked incredibly well. Every student got a gold star for the day if they made an effort to speak French. It was remarkable to see how hard they worked for this seemingly small token.

6 Ways to Bring Back the Holiday Magic
Do you believe in magic? Do you have faith in what cannot be seen? When I was a child I had an unwavering belief in magic; however, when I was nine years old, my best friend told me that Santa didn’t exist. She said her older brothers had finally told her the truth. I wondered…How could Santa not be real? He wrote me letters, ate my cookies, and left toys next to the fireplace. Not wanting to fall prey to the world of my friend’s non-believing brothers, I figured I’d better have some proof of Santa’s existence. So, I decided to investigate. I wrote Santa a note and asked straight out, “Are you real?”
