I just got back from a weekend conference called Kickstart Intensive. Put on by Dr. Neal Barnard, the goal was to help the 125 people from all over the world "Lose Weight. Get Healthy. Test Drive A Vegan Diet."I was really happy that I attended the event, and I brought back tons of helpful information that I hope to pass on to you over the next few weeks. For now, I trust you'll be satisfied...

Do you ever feel like you've lost your bearings and have the sense that you're not where you want/need to be?I'm busier than ever, with lots of great things going on in my life, but lately I've been neglecting my diet and exercise schedule, and my body is telling me that it's time to pay attention.Just the other day, a kid in my neighborhood who belongs to my church mentioned "I haven't been...

While on vacation in California this summer, I picked up a couple of bags of pistachios, one of my favorite nuts.Frankly, I was surprised they've lasted this long, but when I saw this soup on the cover of the latest edition of Vegetarian Times, I knew they wouldn't last for long.This is a super easy and tasty recipe, perfect for the cool fall days ahead. Labeled "guilt free comfort food," you...

With the click of my mouse, I'll be emailing the last of my class papers this morning :) Going back to school hasn't been easy, but I am grateful for the experience, and grateful that my classes are over until next year.Now, it's time to take a breath and then get back to business. I hope you've been to your local farmer's market by now. There is so much great stuff to buy, but I'm still...

I got to the Farmer's Market late today, and there were slim pickens. Swiss Chard must be plentifully growing on everyone's farm/plot, since the tables were laden with it. There was even a swiss chard cooking demonstration going on at one booth. It was too crowded for me, but I could hear the chef say something about adding a splash of either red wine or balsamic vinegar just before serving....

I've been waiting to post this recipe until I could find fresh peas at my local Farmer's Market, and today was the day.Maybe I've just come too late to get them, but I've been to the market each week for the last month, and no luck.Since my mom has been cooking out of Frances Mayes' book The Tuscan SunCookbook which I got her for Mother's Day, she's been raving about the recipes she's tried....

I'm sorry its been so long since I've posted one of my Saturday recipes. :(Well, all we can do is go forward, right? Anyone who reads Making All Things New on a regular basis knows how much I depend on lentils for a tasty and inexpensive source of protein in my daily diet.

Happy St. Patrick's Day! I took my first overseas trip when I was eleven. My mom and I traveled to Ireland with a friend of hers. It was an adventure in many ways, and that trip got me hooked on travel.Sadly, I haven't been back to this country of my ancestors, but I hope I'll be able to return one day in the not too distant future. It's a beautiful country with wonderful people. Today's soup,...

Tortellini Soup

Each Lent, my staff and I host a dinner for our many volunteers. It used to be a pot luck, but we decided to make it a soup and salad night, making it fit a bit better with the austerity of this penitential season.This year, I made both a lentil soup and a tortellini soup. They went over very well, and now I thought it was time to share this recipe with you. Super simple, you could quickly make...

Hi folks, sorry for posting absence. I've been so busy with many things, and my blogging has suffered :(I hope you'll be patient with me as I try and catch up. Once again I'm turning to the simple lentil for a terrific soup, made even better by the addition of a bit of lemon juice.I don't know about you, but there's something about the vibrancy of lemons that remind me of the summer sunshine....
