Permission is Granted

“Perhaps the most important thing we bring to another person is the silence in us, 

not the sort of silence that is filled with unspoken criticism or hard withdrawal. 

The sort of silence that is a place of refuge, of rest, 

of acceptance of someone as they are.”

~~ Rachel Naomi Remen

Greetings to all my precious people!

We are on the cusp of Summer as the week of the Full Flower Moon unfolds with radiance and the promise of transformation on so many levels.  This Full Moon pays tribute to the abundance of colorful, new blooms that blossom during this time of the year. The Flower Moon will have a golden appearance while it rises in the east and later fades to white as it moves through the galaxy overhead.  Check it out via this link from Space.com:  Full Flower Moon.  continue reading »

Mushroom Scampi Recipe

While most scampi recipes feature shrimp rather than the namesake small, lobster-like crustaceans, this mushroom version is a joyful meat-free alternative. All of the signatures are here – garlic, butter and white wine – and the mushrooms add a rich, earthy umami element. There is room to vary your mushrooms; while cremini or button mushrooms are great because they remain juicy and plump, oyster or shiitake mushrooms would add a pleasing, chewier texture. This dish is also parsley heavy; some is cooked with the mushrooms and the rest is added fresh, delivering a clean herbaceousness that brightens the dish. Eat with pasta, noodles or bread.  continue reading »

Curiosity is your Catalyst

“I am neither especially clever, nor especially gifted. 

I am only very, very curious.”

~~ Albert Einstein

Greetings to all my precious people!!

How are you feeling these days?  So many people are reporting upper respiratory symptoms of sneezing, nasal congestion, hoarseness and headaches that we typically associate with allergies.  Our bodies are being exposed to the seasonal forces of wind and rain that stir up the pollen, pathogens and viruses known to circulate in early Spring.   While we might be well versed in the seasonal patterns of Nature, the cyclical movement of stars and planets also influence our lives on the macro and micro levels.  Yes, I am talking about astrology again, and how the confluence of all things in the natural order affect our health and well-being.  continue reading »

Mushroom and Cottage Cheese Pasta Recipe

This low-effort, intensely flavored pasta dish highlights the earthiness of mushrooms. First, the mushrooms are cooked to release moisture and to concentrate their flavor, then they are puréed into a velvety sauce. Cremini mushrooms are an excellent choice because they are accessible and have a bold mushroom taste, but other varieties also work. For even more mushroom flavor, add a few shiitake mushrooms or a small handful of rehydrated dried porcinis. Cottage cheese is perhaps the most under appreciated of the supermarket fresh cheeses. The curds melt through this pasta to add a feathery light, mildly sweet creaminess.  continue reading »
