Green Living and How to Create a Less Toxic Home

Like most of us, in my twenties I thought I knew exactly where I wanted to go with my life.  I had lofty dreams and big plans to create an incredibly successful life.  But it’s always interesting how events in our lives and circumstances that arise end up changing our goals and adjusting our path.  I’ve heard these little changes that influence our decisions called divine breadcrumbs: the common themes that keep showing up in our lives gently nudging us to a different path. In truth, I think this is exactly how I was led to a toxin free lifestyle. Green living...

How Lyme Disease Led Me On A Holistic Healing Journey 

When I was 24 years old my life was turned upside down. I worked as a nanny for twins which is exhausting in itself.

Seven Ways to Use a Wok

A wok is a very unique bowl-shaped frying pan with Chinese origins dating all the way back to the Han-Dynasty. This pan may have a small flat bottom and wide, sloping edges or it could be completely rounded (i.e. the traditional Chinese design). Woks are often made of carbon steel, an almost indestructible material that can and really should be pre seasoned.  This seasoning, referred to as the patina, functions to make a wok virtually nonstick and to prevent rusting. Like the seasoning on a well-loved cast iron pan, this seasoning also imparts flavor into dishes. You can develop a...

These are two of the best types of pans home cooks and chefs can have and they can often be used interchangeably, but they are different enough to justify having both.  Understanding how a sauté pan is different from a skillet can help you feel more confident in the kitchen and save you time deliberating over which pan is best.
