Welcoming Spring 2021

Spring is here and I toast it with this hearty  green juice and a enthusiastic  spirit! Spring  is always a special time.  The spring season ushers in the rebirth of nature. It’s a fresh beginning; a time to clear, reflect, and begin anew. In the organizing business, Spring is a time for seasonal organizing (clearing clutter,…

Marching into March, 2021

As the seasons are shifting a new dawn is appearing.   In Michigan we KNOW snow may come, again,  before the season totally dozes off.   Even in the chilly wind of March  I can  sense an upgrade  in the atmosphere. Time to get our glow back, and more pep to our step.     January and February…

New Year 2021!

Happy New Year 2021, even through visions of 2020 may still be dancing in our head.  The new year is starting off quite different from previous years.   The rush to write New Year’s goals (resolutions) is taking a back seat for many, except possibility  HEALTH and WELLNESS goals. For plant-based, health-wise recipes and lifestyle information…

Make the Season Merry!

With everything the year 2020 represents, I am celebrating the year end. The winter season ( especially in Michigan) can be bare and beautiful at the same time. Many people welcome the winter months as a time to hibernate and rest, reflect and retool. As you carry your thoughts, reflections, aspirations, goals and Great Food…

Welcome Fall Season 2020

Nature’s seasonal cycle continues even when other things may be floundering. This indicates to me that Order is fundamental to the universe. Being in harmony with the rhythm of nature can (in many ways) help us to establish and maintain a sense of order in our personal lives. Here is a thought to ponder. Observe…

What Do You Have in Your House?

Using what we have on hand at home has taken on a whole new meaning for the global community. Could our time spent at home possibly lead us to bring a new dimension of order into our lives, homes, and relationships? Yesterday I was thinking how great it is to be creative with just what…

Spring, came almost unnoticed this year, though the warm weather did provide a sense of comfort during this unprecedented time.  The COVID – 19 outbreak has a global community staying inside, with many things out of our control.   But there are personal…

Portabella Mushroom Strips

Have you wanted to create a mushroom dish this summer? I just prepared one that is healthy, tasty and a delight to serve. Quick and easy portabella mushroom strips  with onions, bell peppers, spicy seasonings and covered in a tangy handmade barbecue sauce. Loving it! Mushrooms really have more texture than taste.   The meaty, firm…

Spring 2019

It’s time (really past the time) for warmth in the air, lingering sunlight, longer daylight hours, and signs of new vegetation. I love waking to the sounds of birds chirping; it puts spring in my heart. The little darlings have made it back from their winter hiatus. Spring always signifies new beginnings. I’ve been outside…
