Importance of Family Dinners: Check me Out Cooking with Katie Couric!

It finally aired this week! A few months ago I traveled to New York and taped a segment on ABC’s The Katie Show about the importance of family dinners and how to make them work in our busy lives. Katie and I also cooked a 10-minute family meal together, Spice-Tossed Shrimp with Parmesan Grits.  Here’s a link to the segment in case you want to take a peek at one of the most exciting (and terrifying!) experiences of my life gabbing and cooking with one of the coolest women around.

I’m Writing A Diabetic Cookbook – Will You Share Your Story?

Chances are there’s someone you love that lives with this challenging disease.Type 1 diabetes, which affects 5 – 10 percent of people with diabetes, is not preventable and often begins in childhood.  Type 2 diabetes, which is far more prevalent, can be preventable and often treatable at onset by maintaining a healthy weight, exercising and eating well.My grandfather Isadore Shlensky had diabetes.  I have early memories of watching him give himself insulin shots in his stomach (maybe that’s where my fear of needles developed!). As a child, I couldn’t imagine having to give myself shots every day—frankly, even as a grown woman I cringe at the thought.
