Lisa Reinhardt is Leaving a Luscious Legacy

I am very excited to introduce you to Lisa Reinhardt, one of the very first chocolate makers I met when I began my Chocolate for Breakfast adventure. I loved both the intention in her chocolate making and her beautiful spirit. I finally had an opportunity to meet Lisa, face to face, a rare and wonderful treat in this online world of ours, and we “talked chocolate” for hours.

Sherry Richert Belul is Leaving a Luscious Legacy

‘Tis the season, yes? I don’t know about you, but for me, December can be a pretty stressful month. Each year when the holidays arrive, I give myself the gift of a grounding ritual.

They feel lonely in the kitchen. Or, they simply haven’t yet experienced the joy of cooking. Notice I say, “yet.” I’m the eternal optimist. I love this interview because Tania expresses some of these struggles and then she shows us how her “trade for sanity” and her willingness to “receive,” transformed her experience around food. I was struck by the win-win nature […]

Nisreen Diab-Hawley is Leaving a Luscious Legacy

I meet a lot of amazing women, both in my work as a culinary nutritionist and in my online foodie world. Where else can you discuss what you’re having for dinner with forty two friends? Of course, I’m drawn to the women who love food and share my foodie sensibility. I’m also drawn to their stories—their food history, how they nourish themselves and their families in the midst of a busy and passionate life, what they eat. Be sure to read the entire interview. There is always a delicious chocolate recipe at the bottom. If […]
