Chooze Pop Up Shop for holiday shopping

America you have chosen! I won't comment on political views but I'm so relieved the election is finally over. I'm done with choosing one over another and am happy instead to announce that Chooze is back with a pop up store for holiday shopping! For those who don't know, you don't have to choose sides with Chooze shoes. The right shoe is harmoniously different from the left shoe but both are united in step and design. I wish that kind of unity for our country too as we move forward.

5 things I learned from having a thymoma tumor

You may have noticed a lull in posts over the past summer. It wasn't because we were busy with kids and vacation. I wish so much that was the case. In fact we had just planned a 2 month journey through Asia for a trip of a lifetime. Instead, the doctors found a thymoma tumor in my chest cavity. It was "the size of an orange", my doctor described. And just like that my life was never the same again.

Red Rooster Cookbook by Marcus Samuelsson

New York City is full of exciting boroughs, each with it's flavor and diversity and Harlem is no exception. The large neighborhood located on the north end of Manhattan, Harlem boasts a vibrant history and is rich in music, arts and culinary culture. When chef Marcus Samuelsson opened Red Rooster on Harlem’s Lenox Avenue, he envisioned so much more than just a restaurant. He wanted to create a gathering place at the heart of his adopted neighborhood, where both the uptown and downtown sets could see and be seen, mingle and meet – and so he did, in a big way. In conjunction with Samuelsson's long awaited release of The Red Rooster Cookbook, Macy's Culinary Council will be hosting a cooking event. Find out how to get your free copy of The Red Rooster Cookbook and have it signed by Samuelsson.

7th Annual Texas Veggie Fair returns October 22

The annual Texas Veggie Fair is one of our favorite fall festivals. The annual event returns to Reverchon Park on Saturday October 22. I love it because it doesn't drain my wallet, fill my children up with sugar and give them a bad case of the "Gimme Gimme" as they ogle all the rides and useless soft toys. Texas Veggie Fair is different. It feels more lovey and less grabby. We go and play good old fashion carnival games, eat a few meatless items and then sing kumbaya while giving everyone free hugs. Ok not exactly but vegan singer Erykah Badu did let the kids come on stage with her one year while she was performing. We leave having learned a few things about healthy green living, animal welfare and inspired to cook more with vegetables. This is Texas' largest celebration of all things veggie!

Dîner En Blanc

After weeks of anticipation, the most sought after secret event, Le Dîner en Blanc finally arrived. Pedestrians walking near the Dallas City Hall last Friday evening, stood agape to witness an intriguing scene unfold. Busloads of people clad in pristine white, holding white tables and chairs and baskets of food started arriving at the Dallas City Hall. 2300 people transformed the dull concrete courtyard of the Dallas City Hall into an ethereal procession of picnicking angels. Welcome to the second Annual Le Dîner en Blanc!
