LaVonne Levar passed away peacefully on Jan 18, 2015, surrounded by loving friends and family. During her 2 ½ day stay at Solvay Hospice House she had a continuous stream of visitors with many stories told and songs sung.  She positively impacted the lives of many. This blog was one of many ways she was able to share her strength, creativity, and love of life, and has served as a beautiful expression of her enjoyment in giving to others. The comments and emails that she received from her readers inspired her to continue fighting.  She expressed great comfort in knowing that through the results of her struggles she was able to benefit the lives of others.

We are celebrating her life with a service and lunch at 11am on Sunday January 25th at the Sacred Heart Music Center in Duluth, MN.  All are welcome.

It is our wish that this blog remains available as a resource for people with unique dietary restrictions, as well as people simply looking for a tasty and healthy recipe.

With love,

                Kiara Levar (daughter-in-love) on behalf of the rest of LaVonne’s family- husband Tom, sons Caleb, Dan and Sam.

2015 Welcomes You

I am sorry I have been absent from this site for so long.   Hopefully, you were able to find useful recipes from the prior posts that met your needs through the holidays. My absence was due, in part,  to a four-day hospitalization, and I am slowly regaining my strength and vitality.  

Thanks to all of you who encouraged me in 2014 with your personalized emails or your comments on this site to continue to post recipes for tasty, nutritious pureed recipes.  Your encouragement was a source of great joy and purpose for me. I hope to start posting again soon.   

I invite you, and me, to embrace 2015 with this wisdom: 

May your choices reflect your hopes,
Not your fears. Nelson Mandela
