Vegan Crab Cakes Danni McGhee inspires again with her vegan crab cakes. It’s a creative dish everyone enjoyed at Greenfare Organic Cafe. This plant-based dish and contains some very unusual ingredients that when combined mimics crab cakes in texture and in appearance. The basics of seasoning vegan styled meals was presented in a very charismatic and holistic way. She encouraged the participants to seek and explore veggie alternatives based on her own research and experiences. The dish ingredients and prep may be found at skillet.com.

In Conversation With Cathy Barrow I had the pleasure of speaking with Cathy Barrow, a food writer, cooking teacher and pie maker. Barrow writes a column in the Washington Post’s Food section, called “Bring It.” She has written for the New York Times, Garden and Gun, The Local Palate, Modern Farmer, Saveur, Southern Living, NPR, National Geographic, and other publications. Her first cookbook, Mrs. Wheelbarrow’s Practical Pantry, won the prestigious IACP Award. She gave great advice about pitching recipe ideas to publishers. She spoke about the importance of pitching to food editors in particular. She said when pitching, contacts may be found in the acknowledgements section of a book. The pitch must sing, and be no more than 200 words. It is important to get to the point. Be sure to include a link to previous works and an end date to answer by. Annd be sure to follow-up. She spoke about valuing your work, which meant not working for free! Good luck with your writing projects! Cheers!
Alina Violin She is exciting! All eyes were on this fabulous lady. She dances, plays the violin, while playing engaging tunes, which mesmerizes the audience. Take a look. This performance will brighten up your day. Cheers!
Velia Sierra This line featured all one piece bathing suits. Each one was unique, yet similar in that each piece was beautiful. I noted an assortment of colors, orange, black, blue and animal prints. A Sierra touch was a tie at the waist.
