The Greatest Love of All

Share this…FacebookTwitterLinkedinemailYummlyDiggPinterestRedditSometimes Valentine’s Day makes me see red. There is so much emphasis on loving couples toasting each other with loving cups of fine wine and sharing platefuls of delicious food. Expectations are as high as the romance meter, not to mention prices at restaurants for those coveted two top tables. One NYC restaurant is charging $1000 per couple for a “gourmand experience.” It’s all fine if you want to buy into it…and if you are a couple. But many of you are single and fabulous. There should be no shame or sadness in being single, either by choice or […]

Be Supermarket Savvy and Pack a Power Pantry: Fearless Fabulous You! On-Air Feb 9

Share this…FacebookTwitterLinkedinemailYummlyDiggPinterestRedditJean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin once said, “Dis-Moi Ce Que Tu Manges, Je Te Dirai Ce Que Tu Es.” (Tell me what you eat and I will tell you who you are.”) Sadly if most people living in the U.S. were defined literally by what they eat we’d have a lot of genetically modified, artificially produced adults and a bundles of sugar babies. When I was diagnosed with breast cancer five and a half years ago I took a hard look at what I was putting into my body, especially when it was no longer receiving infusions of chemo cocktails every few […]

Before You Say “I Do” Consider These “Don’ts”

Share this…FacebookTwitterLinkedinemailYummlyDiggPinterestRedditWhy are some women more comfortable discussing love, intimacy, diets and stomach bloating but not finances with their spouses? I admit to being one of those women for many years. I think much of it was due to my upbringing where discussing money was not appropriate; neither were religion or politics. Both of my parents worked full time earning decent incomes, but their approach to spending and saving money was not in sync, and I remember as a child listening to their fights over money. Perhaps that’s why I clammed up over money talk with my intended husband. I […]

Getting Things Off My Chest: I Have A Voice

Share this…FacebookTwitterLinkedinemailYummlyDiggPinterestRedditOur lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter. -Martin Luther King (1929-1968) Theologian/Activist Growing up, children were taught to “be seen and not heard.” It was a matter of being polite around adults. But it is also important to teach children to speak out, especially women and, especially, if they are facing an injustice. Among my few  regrets in life are the times when I didn’t speak up, negotiate harder on a contract  or present myself with my full voice of confidence. Odds were the outcomes did not work in my favor. Often we don’t speak out because we fear […]

As the Stomach Churns

Share this…FacebookTwitterLinkedinemailYummlyDiggPinterestRedditI’m freshly landed in upstate New York from what has been a month-long holiday whirlwind taking me from Chattanooga to Maui with deliciously decadent pit stops in New York and Bridgehampton. My stomach still hasn’t made it back. I think it made a detour or was replaced by an imposter, a bully of a belly quietly grumbling, heaving and puffing to remind me of the excesses I enjoyed. Belly bloat is just an intestinal hangover…or stomach lag. But a good time was had by all! “Detox” seems to be the word of the month. January is when my inbox is flooded […]
