Falafel with Israeli Salad #SundaySupper

by Anne Papina on November 3, 2013

Here in San Francisco, the quest to find the best falafel seems never ending. I should know, I’ve been sampling them all over town for as long as I can remember. The one place that had it right, Just Like Home, disappeared eons ago. Meanwhile a parade of places serving dried-up hockey pucks has taken […]

Homemade Potato Chips

by Anne Papina on June 28, 2013

If you’re gonna be bad, there’s no point in holding back. That’s my thinking anyway. So when I saw OXO’s hand-held mandoline in my goodie bag from Camp Blogaway, I knew right away I needed to make potato chips. Airy, crispy, salty, honest-to-goodness potato chips.

Review: Core Foods’ Defender and Warrior Meals

by Anne Papina on March 20, 2013

Energy and protein bars have flanked the grocery aisles for years now, and the real estate they take is ever expanding.

Whole Grain Apricot Walnut Muffins

by Anne Papina on March 10, 2013

Life has a funny way of getting in the way sometimes, which is what led to my brief hiatus. Life. But it’s all good. Family always comes first, you know. And there’s nothing like a health crisis to put those things in perspective! These Whole Grain Apricot Walnut Muffins are a great way to kick […]

As I sit here writing this post, I chuckle at how I suspect my friends will react when they see a vegan recipe coming through. You see, I come from a long line of meat eaters. Heck, I just went in with a couple of friends on a split-quarter of an organic, grass-fed cow. Yep, […]
