Seth and I were more than 12,000 miles apart when we celebrated 24 years of marriage in January! I was at KTLA’s studios in Los Angeles to talk about how to make healthier food choices without feeling deprived. This was timely because “Quitter’s Day” comes around just a couple of weeks into January. I hadn’t […]

Gooey, flavorful, light and satisfying. Need I say more? The original inspiration for this recipe came from one of my visits to Canyon Ranch.
