This 10-Minute Black Bean Dip Will Be A Touchdown At Your Next Football Party!

October 1, 2015

Football season is in full swing, and game day snacks aren’t always super healthy. But I have a recipe for an amazing dip that you can serve instead of nachos or wings that you can turn to for endless munching, with no guilt whatsoever. There’s no added sugar or fat, it’s vegan and gluten-free, and you can easily customize it to suit your own tastes. Plus, there’s no cooking and it only takes 10 minutes. What could be better?

I was dogsitting a little guy named Doty when I threw this together, and he photobombed one of my pictures. I absolutely love this shot: Read the rest of this entry »


Exciting TV Announcement PLUS My Awesome New Kitchen Toy PLUS A Tasty Easy Dip Recipe!

January 21, 2013

Is your DVR remote control handy? Or pen and paper? I just want you to be prepared, because I have exciting news: I’m gonna be on TV again!

I’ll be a guest on “The Doctors” next Monday, January 28th! It’s a show about weight loss, featuring the one-and-only Richard Simmons. As part of his segment, they wanted to feature success stories of people that have worked with Richard to drop pounds. I’m one of 5 success stories, along with my friends Joanne, Marcia, Iris, and Lori, that are there to inspire a woman in the studio audience who wants to lose weight.

We taped the show in late December (and I’ve kept my mouth shut about it per the confidentiality agreement they asked me to sign), and it was a lot of fun. I’m in the very first segment at the start of the show, and also onstage at the very end of the hour as well. “The Doctors” is syndicated, and to find out when it airs in your area, click here. I actually don’t know right now if my appearance will be available online. There’s a good chance it won’t be, so if you don’t have a DVR or a VCR or the ability to drop everything and watch it when it’s actually on, then you have about a week to figure out a solution! TUNE IN!

FUN FACT: This is actually my second appearance on “The Doctors” – I appear, briefly, in a segment taped at Slimmons that aired about a year ago. You can watch it online right here.

Moving on… I got a fun new kitchen toy as a Christmas present, and I’ve been photographing it in action!
