Spa food at home
How I would love to spend a week at Rancho la Puerta in Baja California. My friend went with her pals years ago and came back refreshed, invigorated and raving about the experience. It's on my bucket list!
But while I wait, I found this article in Epicurious with recipes from a selection of international spas, including La Puerta, that specialize in gourmet health food. Check out Cucumber Gazpacho with Shrimp and Melon from Rendezvous Bay, or Garden Beet Soup (above) from Rancho La Puerta.
At the University of Cincinnati, I teach writing, reporting and research methods to journalism students as well as a course in mass communication.
I also write a "Healthy Foodie" column, with co-author Mary Ann Barnes, M.D., for the magazine Whole Living Journal, which is distributed in the Cincinnati metro area.
I'm a freelance food and travel writer, a dedicated exercise fanatic (have been since my 20s) and an avid gardener, reader, cook and moviegoer. I'm live in Cincinnati with my husband, George, and recently lost my sweet mother, who died peacefully at 91.
