San Diego Living: Summer Recipes

I had such a wonderful time with Marc Bailey on San Diego Living. I had done a segment in April as part of my satellite media tour and they invited me back. I shared the Tropical Fruit Curry Smoothie and Chocolate Truffles from The Blender Girl cookbook. I felt bad when Marc inhaled some raw cacao powder and started coughing uncontrollably. Luckily, he was OK and loved the truffles! Watch the segment here.

Denver Rocks!

I had a really beautiful time in Denver. I always feel energized when I go to Colorado. There is such a wonderful vibe around wellness and healthy living that I find inspiring. I arrived into Denver really late from New York and was absolutely exhausted after an incredibly busy week of appearances and meetings. So, to be spoiled with an amazing suite on the top floor of the hotel and a gorgeous welcome amenity of superfoods and dark chocolate with a 180 degree view of the city was such…

Today.Com: 5 Summer Smoothies

Today.Com featured Five Summer Smoothies from my collection this month. They shared the Papaya Pleasure, Tropical Curry, and Pineapple Salsa smoothies from The Blender Girl cookbook, and I created a Berries and Cream, and Chocolate-Chile Shake for the article. Find all five recipes here.


I make no secret of the fact that New York is my favourite city in the world. Scott and I are planning to move there (well, at least for part of every year.....I hate the cold weather) and I cannot wait! Needless to say, I savour every single moment in Manhattan. The Westin Grand Central hosted me during my stay, and it could not have been a better more "central" (pardon the pun) location for getting to all of my meetings and appearances. The staff there are so friendly, and with a…

Wonderful Weekend in DALLAS

I had such an amazing time in Dallas with my dear friend Richard and his family. After Dallas got hit with terrible storms and a tornado warning, my respectable 5PM flight out of L.A.X literally became a red-eye, leaving at about midnight and getting in at 4AM! Sooooo, I literally had time to sniff the sheets on my heavenly bed before flying off to a TV taping with no sleep! Thank goodness I was making one of the quickest easiest recipes from my book – the All-But-Instant Raspberry…

Reluctantly Healthy for Yahoo: Blending with Judy Greer

I had a blast shooting some episodes of Reluctantly Healthy with Judy Greer. Judy's hilarious new book, I Don't Know Where You Know Me From: Confessions Of A Co-Star was released by the same day as The Blender Girl! She was hanging out with Scott at Random House Audio when she was recording the Audio Version of her book. Don't miss out on listening to her narrate her own stories. It is just brilliant. Judy has SO much going on right now. She is promoting her book, is shooting movies,…

Happy Birthday: My Book Tour Kicks Off in Austin.

I had an amazing weekend in Austin, kicking off The Blender Girl National Book Tour with some of my closest friends. Westin Hotels are hosting me around the country for my tour and The Westin Austin At The Domain pulled out all of the stops to make sure I had an incredible stay. When I arrived, there was an amazing hand-written note and plate full of delicious superfoods as part of the Westin Wellbeing "Eat Well" initiative - encouraging guests to make healthy food choices. The…

Home & Family on Hallmark Channel: Raw Tacos

I had so much fun "uncooking" on the Home & Family show for the Hallmark Channel. My dear friend Sophie Uliano is a regular on the show, and had been telling me for ages about how much fun she had hanging out with Mark Steines and Cristina Ferrare and the rest of the "family." Shooting the Earth Day 2014 episode with Sophie and fellow guests Tabatha Coffey, Reno Wilson, Laura Nativo, Alan Luxmore, and Jessie Jane was just an absolute blast. Tabatha talked about her new book, OWN IT!

The Blender Girl Book Launch Party at RA MA Yoga Institute in Venice, CA

The Blender Girl cookbook launched on April 8th and it was an exciting day. I woke up and the book was #130 of all books on Amazon, and started climbing. I was so blessed to have my parents visiting from Australia, Scott’s parents in from Sacramento, our dear friends Joann and Melissa from Arizona, and Richard from Texas, Michelle and Korey, as well as our sweet friends Debbie, Chuck, David, and Pola from San Bernardino. Planning and catering a party for 300 people is no small task…
