Last week we took a few days off and headed to the beautiful mountains of sunny Oregon. Soon after our reservations were made, my mind raced to the food. What was I going to pack for meals? Meals afterall, at least for our family, are of the utmost importance. We like to eat when we go camping!

I quickly grabbed a pad of paper and started making notes. "Hmmm, we need 5 dinners and breakfasts and lunches, plus snacks for 2 adults and 2 teens". Easy. Well maybe not easy, but totally do-able. And all vegan too.

The use of seaweed as food has been traced back to the fourth century in Japan and the sixth century in China. Today those two countries and the Republic of Korea are the largest consumers of seaweed as food.

For years I have had people beg me for this macaroon recipe. They became the signature "must have cookie" at our bakery and catering company. I always made absolutely sure that these babies were a part of cookie trays, gift baskets and personal meetings, especially when I needed to put a smile on someone’s face.

These might look like corn muffins, but let me just say that they are SO much more!

I love revisting favorite recipes, ones that have, for one reason or another, been pushed aside in favor of something new. So when an occasion arises, I have to steal the opportunity. The Peanut Ginger Tofu Salad recipe (from here on the Everyday Dish site) is one of those favorite recipes.

A while back, Bryanna Clark Grogan told me about a great new skillet she bought. It was one that she had used at a demo, and said that the pan was fantastic, and didn't need extra oil. With a recomendation like that, I had to check it out.

What I discovered is that the Swiss Diamond pans don't contain PFOA. The company says that the non-stick interior is made from a nano-composite containing real Diamond Crystals (in powdered form). PFOA is the chemical that everyone seems to be concerned with in the non-stick pans.
