Ghosts Combine for a Chilling and Beautiful Sequence

When Liz Marshall, director, producer and writer of The Ghosts in Our Machine heard the Radiohead song “Give up the Ghost” it became her dream to incorporate that haunting music into her film; she felt it reflected the tone, mood and message of Ghosts perfectly. She wrote to Radiohead and received artist approval to use the song

Blending tips from Tess Masters

Hello, My name is Tess, and I’m a blendaholic. I absolutely love my Vitamix – I use it at least three times a day and could never live without it. No matter what make and model of blender you’re using at home there are some tips that I share in my new book, THE BLENDER GIRL that will help you get the most bang for your buck with any machine. Even the high-end blenders with all of the bells and whistles need to be treated with care. Whilst they ARE powerful and extremely resilient, they are not indestructible.

Gellin’ with Chia

I absolutely love chia seeds! I especially appreciate all of the nutrition and health benefits that they provide to my body, and I try to work them into my daily diet wherever and whenever I can. That being said, I have run into an obstacle, or should I say, a slight annoyance when it comes to my enjoying this awesome superfood. Much like their seedy counterpart, the poppy seed, teeny-tiny chia seeds will often get caught in between my teeth when I’ve used them as a topping to my morning meal or dinner salad. Thankfully, as the saying goes, “necessity is the mother of invention.” In an effort to ease my frustration (and to avoid the amused stares of those around me), I sought out a solution to stave off the unsightly specks in my smile, and the answer was actually quite simple – Chia Seed Gel to the rescue!

Yesterday we published an article from Bryanna Clark Grogan about vegan “meat of the fields” – an interesting history of where they came from, along with her take on making her own. In this article, Bryanna shared a recipe for homemade seitan, and we promised to follow with more great recipes today. Here they are! A pasta with “clam” sauce, an angel hair pasta with “scallops”, and fried “sea meat scallops” with asparagus – promising to get your mouth watering! Note, you will need the recipe from yesterday – which you find here – for some of these recipes
