Danni McGhee, Vegan Author

  Danni McGhee’s Vegan Kale Salad Danni McGhee’ gives a demonstration on making vegan kale salad. It is an easy salad to make. The ingredients: Nutritional yeast, Avocados, kale, Salt, Pepper, and Garlic Powder. You will enjoy the wholesomeness of the dish. I suggest that you taste as you go as nutritional yeast may be an acquired taste for some. Of course, experiment and add improvements as you go. The dish was firm, fresh and the nutritional yeast gave it a unique flavor. I believe it was to resemble cheese. Danni gives helpful tips to help you with the transition to a vegan diet. She was a pleasure to meet.  Contact Danni McGhee at DAMGoodVegan@gmail.com Cheers

In Conversation With Cathy Barrow   I had the pleasure of speaking with Cathy Barrow, a food writer, cooking teacher and pie maker.

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!

We toured the canal, visited a few museums, had lunch on a boat in the canal and experienced the infamous, ” Red Light District. ” I shall always remember our visit to the Red Light District. I suppose most people are curious because of its notoriety. It certainly lives up to its reputation. The district is loud, boisterous and people are in various stages of drunkenness. To be fair, there are night clubs and entertainment venues in those areas too. However, what was noticed the most were the men, on the hunt. They surveyed the women standing behind the windows with a kind of lascivious intent. Some windows had the curtains drawn, one can draw …
