Confessions of a Gluttonous Entrepreneur · 16 May 13

Conscientious?! · 9 May 12

We’ve been trying to nail down a theme for our blog series and “Search for Simplicity” or “Living with Less” have comes to my idealistic mind, but really, we are looking for something else. A different way… Diversity?

In Pursuit of Happiness Without All the Stuff · 3 February 08

What you learn by traveling is that nowhere is perfect, but perhaps you could take the best of every place you go and incorporate it into your life. A great combination would be to possess the love for life and fun of a Latina, the freedom of an American, and the passion for children, family and spirituality of an Islamic woman.

Two Sides of the Story · 13 January 07

“Food is central to the debate on the environment, development, trade and globalization- but the potential for food choices to change the world should not be overestimated. The idea of saving the world by shopping is appealing, but tackling climate change, boosting development and reforming the global trade system will require difficult political choices.”

Why me? · 14 October 06

I’m not a famous chef, an artisan food producer or a wine expert. I’m someone living in the middle of the American Farm crisis, I’m terrified by the obesity epidemic, I love to cook for my family and I am desperate to help save what little cultural diversity has thus far survived globalization.
