One of the greatest parts of food blogging is being able to connect with incredible artisans, makers and culinary creators from around the world. And if there’s one thing I’ve seen in this community – there are some seriously talented women out there shaping the way we eat, think, and feel about food! This year, I decided to launch a new series on the Vidya blog to highlight some of the kitchen goddesses out …Keep Reading

It’s been quiet on the blog front lately! Between launching a new website, hosting two retreats, guiding the fall group cleanses, completing my prenatal/postpartum yoga teacher training and studying for my upcoming birth doula training, I’ve been one busy (and blessed!) lady over here. It hasn’t left me much time for recipe testing and exploration in the kitchen. In fact, these days I’ve been coming back to the meals that are tried-and-true …Keep Reading
There’s a delicate art to making a red sauce. I know so because I watched my Italian father and aunt spend years refining and perfecting the process of our family recipe. A good sauce takes a minimum of 8-10 hours, beginning with the slow process of sweating the onions on a low heat. Of bringing the garlic to the perfect light golden caramel color.

It was a beautiful sunny Saturday, I had all the windows wide open in the house, music playing loud and the sweet promise of spring elevated my spirits. Then, just like that, I woke up to inches of snow and ice the next morning and dreams of sundresses and ripe fruit sunk back into the quiet folds of my heart. I have never been a cold weather …Keep Reading
As an entrepreneur, my schedule varies each day as much as the weather does here in Oklahoma. And with a strong vata constitution, structure and stability is something I have to work extra hard to create to keep my flighty tendencies in check (ie. I’d be floating off into the ether right back to Tulum if the wind blew me in that direction!). So I’ve made peace with early mornings …Keep Reading
I’m writing you from Tulum, Mexico right now with sand in my toes and salt in my hair. I’m one happy girl right now! Tulum has long been my soul spot, you know that place in the world where your heart softens and opens up a little more to hear the whole universe sing with beautiful synchronicity.
I traveled here last week with the Integrative …Keep Reading
