Hello to all you interested in Zooming into my kitchen. My cooking demos are based on my 14-year old website, Feel free to browse the Recipe Index for recipes that I have posted, usually every week.

Kitchen Nutrition will feature plant-based recipes that you can use as side dishes if you are not a vegetarian, or main dishes if you are looking to expand your meatless menus. My recipes are not complicated or overly-expensive to make, plus by cooking foods low on the food chain, there will be less of a negative environmental impact. Eating healthfully is a good step towards building your immune system.

The emphasis will be on fresh, readily available, whole foods made into summer salads or entrees. They will also be gluten-free, sugar free except maybe for a bit of honey or molasses, dairy free with dairy options, and dishes with an emphasis on The Good Taste of Health.

My hope is that you will enjoy trying a variety of (new) foods and enjoy an eating experience that emphasizes fresh, whole foods with a nod to treats that are also healthful.

You are invited to zoom-in on the class without any fee. Since it is my first experience with Zoom as a teacher, the head of programs, Judy, said to expect some glitches. I remember that Julia Childs used to  get herself out of jams on public television, so I hope I can be as inventive.

If you think you might join me, please email me at: and I will send your email to Judy for the direct link. Or if you aren’t sure, I will send the link probably early Friday morning and you can join me.

Looking forward to seeing you on Zoom. The class will be about one hour with some time at the end for questions.

 NOTE: The emphasis will be on food combining for better digestion. See food combining chart below.
