Eating healthfully while entertaining and attending parties can be tricky. To help you come up with healthy dishes you can serve as a hostess or bring as a guest (i.e. things that taste delicious, look incredible, and leave you feeling good) I partnered up with whole-foods nutritionist Shira Lenchewski and Laurel Gallucci of Sweet Laurel […]
Yesterday we shared decor ideas for a simple and elegant July 4th BBQ, which means we’re onto the best part: the menu. Rip & Tan’s In The Veggie Kitchen series focuses on healthful, veggie-centric meals, so it was fun to come up with recipes for a summer BBQ since it’s traditionally centered on meat and heavier […]
July 4th weekend is a great time to get outdoors and spend time with family and a BBQ is the perfect way to feed guests without taking away from the relaxation. But not all BBQs need to involve hot dogs, hamburgers, and coleslaw. For our latest installment of In the Veggie Kitchen I got together with […]
With grilling season in full swing, I wanted to not only share some of my favorites for the job, but also once again provide some ways in which we can minimize its negative effects. While most of us will do a good bit of grilling in the warmer months (who can resist a backyard barbecue?), […]
One of my favorite things about summer is the type of get-togethers it brings – easy, laid-back occasions with family and good friends.

Our most recent visit to Ojai was filled with doing, seeing and enjoying, and one of the highlights was a backyard barbecue at the home of my dear friend Yifat Oren. She and I have known each other for years – she planned my wedding, and we’ve been friends ever since – and always love […]
The terms Vegan and BBQ don’t generally go hand in hand, but after our Memorial Day-inspired get-together with Kitchen Mouse, they definitely should. For our most recent In the Kitchen, the lovely and talented Erica Daking was tasked with creating a completely vegan and gluten-free meal worthy of a summer-starting BBQ, and she more than rose to […]
I’ve been a fan of Kitchen Mouse owner Erica Daking (and her incredible vegan, gluten-free, farmer’s market food) ever since I met her through my good friend Kimberly Muller. So when we decided to plan a vegan-style BBQ to wrap up the season (stay tuned tomorrow for all the delicious details), I was so excited. For our late […]
Great grilling is only made better by the best sauces and rubs, and I’ve compiled some of my sweet, smoky, and spicy favorites.
With grilling season officially upon us, I wanted to share some of my favorite tools and supplies, as well as some tips for minimizing its potentially harmful effects.
