    Vegan Raspberry Brownie Ice Cream Bars | Kitchen Vignettes for PBS

    I often get requests for recipes that are less reliant on butter & eggs, and that are gluten-free, so I wanted to come up with a fun plant-based recipe that would be refreshing for these sweltering heat waves we’ve been having, and also gluten-free. (And not require an ice cream maker since I don’t have one!) On hot days, I find myself reflecting more than ever on the connection between what we put on our plates and the climate crisis we find ourselves in.

    On Nutrition: Protein and vegetarian diet concerns | Health

    Dear readers: I am encouraging all who can, and haven’t, to get vaccinated against the SARS-CoV-2 virus and the disease known as COVID-19 that’s wreaking havoc around the world.

I have followed the research behind the vaccines’ development and have confidence in their safety and efficacy. This is good science, marvelously developed with fantastic speed. Personal freedoms notwithstanding,   Read More
