A spicy, light dinner perfect for these hot summer days. The jalapeño pepper gives a kick that goes so well with the cauliflower rice. And all for so few calories! Hope for leftovers as the Spicy Tuna Bowl makes a great lunch for the next day. Thanks to my friend Eric Oser for the recipe.

A Girl That.jpg

The difficulties of ex-felons reestablishing themselves is a main part of A Girl Like That. Author Mary Flinn told me, “Elle knows too well the effects of prejudice on her life. Despite her good looks and talent for acting, she is rarely able to experience kindness from her peers or their families…. Elle doesn’t understand how to trust others and comes to expect disappointment at every turn.”  She has developed the lack of self-esteem of so many ex-felons. “I never heard the words I love you from anyone other than Granny.” 


This is a wonderful and complex story of second chances.
