When not sending milky reverberations throughout the blogging world or shopping for cheap riding boots, I’ve been working. Here are five hot new items par moi.
An interview with raw chef Ani Phyo, to go with her new cookbook, Ani’s Raw Food Essentials. This book is really accessible and very pretty. Ani herself is one of the sweetest people ever! She actually invited me to a book signing/cooking class she was giving at Matthew Kenney’s 105 Degrees restaurant in Oklahoma City (very short plane ride for me). I would have gone if it was on the weekend, but alas. But we’ve made plans to meet up when I’m back in LA.
Because of my family and personal history, this article was very important to me. Also, I got to interview Leigh Peele, one of the best (and funniest) personal trainers out there. Pfft, Wii should be paying me for the endorsement.
My Q & A with a missionary who has just returned from Haiti. It was really awesome to hear him talk about how the trip made him so much more grateful for things as simple as a hot bath.
The foodie in me is giggly over this. Basically, it’s the lowdown on how to make an awesome salad, starting with the dressing. I got to interview some wicked cool people, including the chef from one of my favorite restaurants, and Terry Romero, the author of the cute little cookbook Viva Vegan and co-author of the lauded Veganomicon. I look for experts, and vegans know their veggies. I learned many a thing about making salad dressing…and a few scary facts about the restaurant industry. If you’re looking for some good dressing recipes, check this sucker out.
Yeah, eat it, it’s important.
