After recovering from our fun Thanksgiving feasts, we had a really great time in the studio preparing for more holiday fun. From a yummy Foodie-Phile segment all about cranberries to a segment with one of our favorite Green Dudes, Rodman Schley, host of the Urban Conversion TV series. We also got a great smelling DIY […]
Chocolate. Need I say more? It’s a pretty amazing food. Not only is it an aphrodisiac and the quintessential Valentines’ Day gift, I like to think of it rather, as a gift for all mankind. While I am personally more of a dark-chocolate fiend, there are SO many varieties. From white, milk and dark chocolate, all the […]
Granola Fit for a Green Diva (Piglet approved) My dear friend, Nadia Chait gave me this recipe and I have been experimenting with it ever since. It provides a great foundation for adding your favorite nuts, dried fruits and spices. Granola is not only a great road-trip snack, but it also makes a great breakfast, […]

It was founded by the mama earth of Princeton area herself, Dorothy Mullen - local vegetable garden educator, holistic nutritional advocate and certified addictions counselor. She and co-founder of Suppers for Sobriety, […]
In addition to being a nut job, I am a nut lover. I really haven’t tasted a nut I didn’t like – even the peanut, which is technically a legume. I feel dreadfully sorry for those who have the dangerous nut allergy. My fiance has an allergy to chocolate, which I’m actually jealous of, but […]
