Nearly every work morning I make a protein shake as I fly out the door to teach. Ninety-nine times out of 100, I use unsweetened vanilla almond milk in that shake.
At a recent breakfast hosted by Flatout Bread I was invited to create a recipe using one of their three new flatbread flavors. I decided to create a wrap using the Sea Salt and Crushed Black Pepper that only needed 5 ingredients – Curried Salmon with Cantaloupe.

The Swedish Tea Ring is easy to make, delicious, and popular. Basically it’s a gussied-up cinnamon roll. I bake to relax. It’s a way for me to balance out the commotion that leads up to the 25th. For quite a few years, I’ve made Swedish Tea Rings and Stollen, based on recipes from a 1972 book “Parents’ Magazine’s Christmas Holiday Book.”
When we were growing up, my mom only bought healthy cereals for us five kids to eat. Special K was a fairly new cereal then, and we ate it while reading the Los Angeles Times comics.
Peanut butter is yummy any time of the year, so when I received several PB items in the mail, I knew I had to create a recipe for Peanut Butter Candy Cane bread. Then we added a giveaway, a new affiliate market for healthy non-GMO, organic snacks, and a few of our favorite healthy snacks.
Knowing I’m a vegetarian and fitness pro, a P.R. friend of mine recently sent me two books by Europe’s top-selling (almost 1 million copies) cookbook author, Attila Hildmann. The books are “Vegan for Fun” and “Vegan for Fit.” A cross between a healthy lifestyle philosophy and cookbook, these are books worth your time (and appetite).
Are you one of the kabillion people who likes coffee and chocolate? If so, you will want to bake this coffee brownie recipe (or at least lick the computer screen).
Nielsen Massey sent me some vanilla sugar so I decided to make cinnamon rolls. They were delectable. I tweaked a King Arthur Flour recipe to create these. One person is going to win some N-M vanilla sugar along with a 2 ounce bottle of vanilla. If you’re a vanilla lover, this is for you.
