Dive deep into the depths of solo travel and resurface changed from the inside out. Life will never be the same. Meandering past the Jameson Distillery in Dublin, on a casual walk to the historic Kilmainham Gaol (prison), I soaked in the beautiful morning light.

You may think that nut butter and avocados sound like a wild combination, it couldn’t be farther from the truth. Actually, the avocado acts like fat that cookies need to bake properly.

This is one of my favorite dishes right now. A remake of my mother-in-law’s Polish zucchini patties, these spinach, zucchini and fresh cut sweet corn cakes are made with Greek yogurt, garbanzo bean flour and an array of herbs. High in dietary fiber and plant based protein, these “veggie cakes” are a perfect option for […]

My pallete […]
