I've decided to keep a log of what I buy at the Farmer's Market in Studio City every Sunday and how much I've spent.
$60 for a lot of food, including 2 croissants (I know, a real splurge) that smoked spicy skipjack tuna pate from the nice folks in Ventura County and the spicy tempha that Vedra likes so much (Not to be confused with tempeh.)
We laid out our stash and Buddha wanted to be part of it.

Since the release of The Supernatural Kids Cookbook we've been noticing that teaching healthy cooking to kids is becoming more prevalent and it's about time. When I published the first natural foods cookbook in l977 (Supernatural) I couldn't even say it was vegetarian because vegetarians were considered fringey types. Not any more. Now even Oprah Winfrey calls herself "veganish."
Here's my latest interview on a site( Kids Cooking Activities) that shares the same philosphy as all of us at The Supernatural Kids Cookbook.
At the last minute, I thought to send Debbie Madson, the amazing woman who runs several sites geared to everything that is good for kids, a photo of the Swedish Pancakes that I talk about. My Mom would have loved that her yummy recipe is being passed down the generations.

In 1977, I published what I believe to be the first vegetarian natural foods cookbook on the market - SUPERNATURAL. Even though it was picked up by an educational publishing company and used in California schools, it was a bit ahead of its time. It was time for an update. Recipes have been tested, Alexandra Conn, my goddaughter did the most gorgeous illustrations, Bridget Fonda wrote the Foreword, and it's ready to go to press. Can't wait to share it.

On May 25th, 60 dynamic women gathered in Vicki Abelson's living room for the fun-filled fest called Women Who Write. Yours truly was one of the authors invited to read. I was in wonderful company--Lisa Rae Page Rosenberg, Vicki Abelson herself, April Winchell & Betsy Hammer--and it was the kind of experience authors live for. WWW is also a potluck brunch so we were treated to an array of delicious cuisine. I brought my "famous" tabbouli and this group of enthusiastic women bought a load of copies of Siren's Feast. I have to say that April Winchell is one of the funniest women I've ever encountered. What a day! I can't wait until next month to see who Vicki has put together.
