Quinoa is My Favorite New Dinner Staple

Quinoa, a pseudo-grain, is a super-food – high in protein, fiber, B-vitamins, magnesium, calcium and vitamin E, and naturally gluten-free. I’ve fallen in love with it lately and started incorporating it into salads for meatless meals.

The citrusy quinoa salad below is the first recipe I tried and still my favorite. But it’s good with other fruits and vegetables and different kinds of beans. Another combination is a tossup for our favorite version: orange sections, corn cut off the cob, diced red onion, diced cucumber, dill, garbanzo beans.

Cherry tomatoes, black beans, sliced scallions, and cliantro, ready for quinoa and dressing

Do you have other suggestions for combinations?

The “She Inspires” campaign, launched this spring at Green Spring Station, is helping to raise awareness and much-needed funding for some of the stores’ favorite causes and charities. Bridget Stickline, owner of Wee Chic, has long supported the Baltimore Child Abuse Center, and proposed them.

The mission statement of Baltimore Child Abuse Center, a non-profit subsidiary of LifeBridge Health, is to provide victims of child sexual abuse, trauma, and other Adverse Childhood Experiences in Baltimore and their non-offending caretakers with comprehensive forensic interviews, medical treatment, and mental health treatment with a goal of preventing future trauma.

“It is important for people to understand that child abuse impacts everyone, in all demographics. One in four girls and one in six boys experience sexual abuse, often by someone they already know,” says LaDonna Morgan, Director of Strategy and Operations at Baltimore Child Abuse Center.

Children who have suffered child abuse can be revictimized by the investigation into the abuse and the legal process that follows. The national Child Advocacy Model practiced by the Baltimore Child Abuse Center brings together everyone involved in an investigation to uncover what happened. They empower the child to tell their story in a safe setting and begin a pathway to healing. BCAC has a team of six therapists available to provide counseling to victims.

All programs at the BCAC are free. To support its programs, the Center receives $3.5 million in grants and $1 million from donors annually.

the Center’s success comes from its passionate staff and volunteers.

On maternity leave from her job in corporate finance, LaDonna Morgan thought about her next career move. She knew she wanted a job doing something that mattered, and found it at Baltimore Child Abuse Center. As part of the strategic operations she oversees, BCAC has added programs to address human trafficking, which often involves children, and inappropriate internet behavior, where children are groomed as potential sex abuse victims. They have a Healthy Boundaries program at schools and camps, to teach children how to recognize and make responsible adults aware of inappropriate behavior. BCAC was active in passing mandatory reporting of child abuse in the Maryland State legislature, and is now advocating for the removal of the statute of limitations on child abuse charges.

Mandee Heinl understands child abuse firsthand. Her father was abusive to her as a child. The authorities were contacted and came to Mandee’s home to investigate. But, she was interviewed with her father sitting next to her on the sofa, urging her to “tell the truth” that nothing had happened. Her mother was also present at the interview, but she was aware of the abuse and had allowed it to continue, so Mandee had no support from her either. Feeling unsafe, Mandee said everything was fine, and the investigation was closed. Finally, when she was in high school, she was able to move out of her home and live with friends and that gave her the opportunity to have a new life and break the cycle. Mandee’s hope for a brighter future came from a community that gave her the ability to see beyond the walls of her abusive childhood home. She is a strong believer in Baltimore Child Abuse Center’s policy of interviewing children in a safe environment away from offending caretakers, so that they can talk freely and fully about what is happening to them.

Mandee has been a volunteer at Baltimore Child Abuse Center for 3 years. She has fundraised for them – working on the capital campaign and their annual gala, “Be A Hero.”

The critical work that the Center does is particularly important right now. Sheltering in place to stop the spread of COVID -19 is causing tremendous emotional and financial stress in families, and putting vulnerable children and adults at greater risk. Teachers and school staff are often the ones who are the first to spot child abuse, and with schools closed, about 20% of child abuse cases are going unreported.

How can you help?

Call Child Protective Services if you suspect that a child is being abused. They will check out your suspicions.

The Baltimore Child Abuse Center can use your help. Donate to their programs if you can, or contribute to fundraising by serving on a planning committee. Spreading awareness is just as important as money. Volunteer to spread their message as an ambassador.

If you are experiencing domestic abuse or aware that someone else is, The National Domestic Violence Hotline (800-799-7233) can give you advice on how to handle the situation safely.

Thank you, LaDonna and Mandee, for sharing your mission with us. You look fabulous on a pre-COVID-19-social-distancing afternoon at Green Spring Station!

COVID-19 Stay at Home Goals: On to becoming a Master Gardener!

Staying at home during the COVID-19 crisis brought out the desire to be a Domestic Goddess in many of us. Did you bake bread? Order sourdough starter? All of the grocery stores are still out of yeast and low on flour, so apparently many have now perfected those skills. Cleaned out the closets, reorganized the pantry and alphabetized the spices? Tried new recipes?

Now that the weather is nice, we can move outside and turn our attention to becoming Master Gardeners.

For several years, I have admired Carol Jean Young’s gorgeous zinnia garden in Cockeysville, Maryland, and wished I had one. Zinnias are the perfect garden annual to grow. They are low-maintenance, and tolerate heat and drought well. Give them a spot with full sun and they will reward you all summer with colorful blooms – and the more you cut them, the more they will bloom. Best of all, they are magnets for nectar-seeking butterflies, goldfinches and hummingbirds.

The vegetable and flower garden we have now is all I had time to take care of, so I always put off adding zinnias. This summer is different – I have lots of time. So I asked Carol Jean for advice and she generously walked me through it step by step.

Zinnias make you look like a master gardener

“Zinnias love very loose soil, so take the time to prepare it,” says Carol Jean. A rectangular 3’ by 6’ area is a good size to make a statement garden of about 55 plants. Till or hoe the soil and then spread a bag of organic soil mix over it. Then, use the edge of a hoe or shovel to make very shallow diagonal troughs through the whole space, placing the lines 6”- 8” apart. This will place your plants closer than the seed packets tell you to, but it works well for Carol Jean, and she thinks it makes her plants grow taller.

Zinnia plants, right after they’ve germinated, but before thinning

Now you are ready to plant seeds. There are many varieties. Butterflies especially like the large flower variety in red or hot pink so keep that in mind if you want to attract them to your garden. Carol Jean grows the tall variety – California giants – that can reach up to 5’ tall. I chose to plant Lilliput Mixed Colors that grow up to 2’ and add some 4’ sunflowers behind them for height. To grow 55 plants, you’ll need to buy at least 100-150 seeds, which should be 2-3 packets, although it’s frustrating that a lot of seed packets don’t show the quantity. A great, local to Baltimore source for all kinds of flower and vegetable seed is Meyer Seed Company, 600 South Caroline Street. You can pick them up or they will ship by UPS.

Carol Jean sows 2 or 3 seeds close together, every 6” – 8” along her troughs. When you are finished sowing, you are ready to cover the seeds with soil. “It’s very, very important to cover the seeds with only ¼” of soil,” cautions Carol Jean. “More than that and they won’t germinate.” After you have finished planting, use the shower setting on a garden hose to gently water the area. Carol Jean waters in between the rows so as not to dislodge the seeds. Until they germinate (7 – 10 days), she waters them lightly twice a day.

Zinnia plants are growing, and the stems are sturdier. Almost ready to thin out.

and they are off and growing up fast!

When the zinnia plants are 3” – 4” high, you need to thin them. Sad, but you really have to choose which of the seedlings in each spot is the hardiest and pull the others out. Zinnia plants grow very fast and shade out weeds, so you shouldn’t have to regularly weed the bed. As the plants grow taller, you may want to stake them to keep them from blowing over in wind or very heavy rain. 1” x 1” x 5’ wood stakes are available for $2.00 each at garden centers, or if you own the stakes used to mark paths for a snowplow, you can use those. You don’t have to stake every plant – staking half gives the others protection. Five weeks later, you’ll have a beautiful zinnia garden ready to brighten your home and share with friends!

Zinnias have very few problems with scourges, but a “too wet” summer can lead to powdery mildew and leaf spot. Here is an easy remedy for that if you spot it on your plants:


Homemade Spray for Powdery Mildew
Gallon of water
1 T baking soda
1 T vegetable oil
1 T dishwashing liquid

Not once, but twice, Maru Fava has faced a diagnosis of cancer.

She looks fabulous, full of energy and has a healthy, vital, radiant glow to her. It’s hard to believe that five years ago (March 20th was her 5-year survivor date!), she was told that she had terminal liver cancer. After talking to her, you can see that not only has her body has returned to good health, she has also maintained the aura of peace, hope and spiritual growth that she found during her illness.

Maru’s journey with cancer began when her best friend was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Maru helped her friend through diagnosis and treatment, accompanying her to chemotherapy appointments at Johns Hopkin’s Hospital. The experience gave her an introduction to the world of oncology and education in treatment protocols.

When her friend successfully finished her course of chemotherapy, Maru and other girlfriends took her on a trip to celebrate her remission. But she cut her trip short by a day because she had a long-standing appointment back home to have a mammogram. Even though she did not suspect anything was wrong, she wanted to keep the appointment. It’s a good thing she did, because unbelievably, at the same time her friend went into remission, Maru found out she had breast cancer.

After successful treatment, Maru had developed a good relationship with her breast surgeon. So when she didn’t feel well and had pain in her ribcage, she called him, concerned. A trip to St. Joseph’s ER and a CT scan revealed bad news – two large masses in her liver. The original diagnosis was Cholangiocarcinoma , a highly fatal cancer of the bile duct. And then more bad news – because of her recent mastectomy and breast cancer diagnosis, she was not eligible for a liver transplant, her only good option for treatment.

As her prognosis went from bad to worse, Maru decided to defy the terminal cancer diagnosis, become her own advocate and explore ways to complement traditional advice and treatment. Her friend had missed rounds of chemotherapy because of low white blood cell counts, so Maru knew that she needed to help her mind and body be as healthy as possible. While researching ways to raise her white blood cell count, Maru found Mistletoe Therapy and the Believe Big organization.

Conventional + Complementary treatments fight together

Believe Big is a non-profit organization that bridges the gap between conventional and complementary treatments for cancer. Conventional treatment includes chemotherapy, hormone therapy, radiation, surgery, immunotherapy and targeted therapy. Complementary therapy includes nutrition, supplements, acupuncture, Mistletoe Therapy, and spiritual and mental wellness. The goal of complementary therapy is to lower chronic inflammation, to stimulate the body’s natural immune system, and to remove toxins and free radicals from the body, using diet and supplementation.

Believe Big encouraged Maru to get a second opinion, and her husband pressed her oncologist to have the pathology redone. Finally, some good news – she was rediagnosed with Epithelioid hemangioendothelioma, EHE, a cancer that grows from the cells that make up the blood vessels and can occur in the liver. It is rare and not much is known about it, but it has a much better prognosis.

Along with traditional treatment, Maru decided to try mistletoe injections. Mistletoe Therapy, an intravenous therapy using European mistletoe extract, is thought to “stimulate bone marrow activity alongside conventional treatments to offset the side effects of chemotherapy/radiation such as nausea, vomiting, and lack of appetite.” It is widely used in Germany and Switzerland, and now starting a Phase I clinical trial in the US at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Maru does not see Mistletoe Therapy as a cure for cancer, but rather as a tool to strengthen her body, stimulate her immune system, and build armies of white cells to help her fight.

conquering the fear that paralyzes

Believe Big’s other mission is to provide spiritual guidance to patients and their families. They are not about promising a cure, but rather about supporting patients wherever they are in the moment and giving them hope and peace. On their website, Believe Big shares a prayer, “I Will Have No Fear” to combat the paralyzing “fear that keeps the body from switching to a rest and repair mode.”

The Believe Big community gave Maru hope and support when she needed it. Exercise, family support, faith, good doctors and a healthy diet are also important to her. Her best advice is to find great doctors, listen to your body when you know something is wrong, and be your own tireless advocate.

speaking out for believe big

To pay it forward, she has become a spokesperson for Believe Big. If you know someone who needs support, there are resources and recommendations on Believe Big’s website.

Vanessa Fava, Maru’s sister-in-law, is the owner of Panache, a boutique for women at Green Spring Station. They were photographed together at the fashion photo shoot (before COVID-19 social distancing) for Green Spring Station’s spring “She Inspires” campaign. Panache is offering a 20% discount, with the code Sheltersale for shoppers on their website while the store is closed to in-person shoppers.

This is the second in a series of “She Inspires” articles featuring inspiring women and the non-profits they support. The first was about Shawn Nocher, Kelly Gill and Love in the Trenches, their organization that supports the parents of children suffering from addiction.

Shawn Nocher and Kelly Gill met each other 30 years ago, as mothers of young children with their whole lives ahead of them. They couldn’t have known then that years later, their bond would become “mothers of addicted children” and that they would form an organization, Love in the Trenches, to help other parents whose children are suffering from the disease of addiction, either in active addiction or in recovery, or who have died from drug use.

For several years, Shawn and Kelly were each other’s lifeline as their sons moved through addiction and recovery at different times. Kelly’s son was in recovery, while Shawn’s son was somewhere out west, actively using. In one of the ironic, unpredictable twists of addiction, at the same time that Shawn’s son moved into a recovery phase that he has maintained, Kelly’s son relapsed and tragically died of an overdose.

Their stories are only partly about their sons. Loving children who suffer from the disease of addiction also affects the entire dynamic of the family. Parents are often not in the same place emotionally and can’t agree on the next steps. The siblings are often angry and confused and feel isolated when all the family’s energy is focused on one child. Families crumble under the weight of addiction. They isolate themselves from extended family and friends and the family keeps secrets.

Love in the trenches

Aware that other parents were trying to connect with each other for information and help, Shawn and Kelly joined forces and created Love in the Trenches as a supportive community for parents. Love in the Trenches helps parents erase the shame of addiction. Many parents come into the LITT community feeling like a parenting failure on their part is the reason their child is suffering – some wrong turn or wrong decision made the problem worse. Through LITT, they come to accept that they did not cause it, cannot control it, and they can love their child and hate the addict.

Drug abuse is a complex set of behaviors. It’s impossible to predict who will suffer from this disease. A group of teens can grow up together, in similar environments, experimenting with the same risky behaviors – 70% of high school seniors drink alcohol, 50% have tried illegal drugs. Most young people who experiment with drugs and alcohol will mature, begin to make good decisions, and become successful functioning adults, but a few will go on to become addicted to drugs and alcohol. The desire for drugs takes over the addicted brain and rational thought processes are compromised. An addict eventually comes to believe—however irrational it might seem to us—that the drugs are keeping them alive, and they can no longer control their moods or the things they do to maintain a high. Friendships and family relationships fall by the wayside, and a normal life becomes impossible. Parents and families have to find their own way to love their child, to be supportive when it is appropriate, but to protect themselves. It takes a community of support like Love in the Trenches to be able to do that. Kelly and Shawn are quick to point out that they don’t have a magic panacea for addiction, but they do know that addiction flourishes in isolation. With support, parents learn to “put on their own oxygen masks first in order to support their child in the best possible way.”

Change a step in the dance, change the dance

LITT runs a bi-monthly speaker series featuring various authorities in the field of addiction, as well as training in the administration of Naloxone to reverse overdose. LITT also supports like-minded programs that work to assist families in recovery and help in their mission to erase the shame of addiction.

Normally, Love in the Trenches holds in-person Support Group and Grief Group Meetings using their experience to offer coping skills, networking opportunities, recovery resources, and active support. However, during this time of social distancing, the groups are meeting on Zoom. Their website, www.loveinthetrenches.org, has information on meetings and lots of resources for parents. Shawn and Kelly are available to talk to you at info@loveinthetrenches.org.

Last fall, I met with Mikey Monaghan to hear her ideas for a She Inspires spring campaign at Green Spring Station. It almost hurts to think about how casually we took it for granted that we could meet face to face at a café over bagels and coffee. Feels like another life. It was another life.

The Green Spring Station “She Inspires” campaign features the stories of a few of the many women we know who have faced difficult obstacles, family situations and illnesses. They have met their challenges with grace, courage and good humor. Their stories, and the organizations they support, encourage other women to share their experiences, feel more empowered and be moved to help women in need.

Little did we know back then, the “She Inspires” campaign would be very timely, and these women will become an inspiration to all of us during the time of COVID-19. They are role models for dealing with adversity – every woman will have their COVID-19 experience, where they need to draw on reserves of emotional strength and plow through difficult days, make difficult decisions, and cope with a very changed life. We will need a community of women to pull it back together.

The photo shoot took place in the courtyard at Green Spring Station on March 13th, a beautiful, balmy early spring day. We were right at the beginning of learning not to hug, to bump elbows instead, and to prefer being outdoors in smaller groups and to avoid crowds indoors.

“Love was in the air,” and every one dressed up in clothes for all the social occasions they would have on their calendars. All of the women looked wonderful in their clothes from Green Spring Station stores and were having a great time getting to know each other and loosening up for the photography session. They were a typical bunch of “the girls” out for a fun Friday lunch and shopping – festive, happy and relaxed.

And then we interviewed them. Each woman had a story that was difficult to hear. Of families crumbling from a child’s addiction, of keeping the secret of physical and sexual abuse, of dealing with cancer when the prognosis gets worse and worse, of traveling for treatment for a child with a rare disease, of getting away from abusive relationships.

One positive thread that ran through their stories was that they each built a community to give them hope. Each one turned to others who had experienced the same thing they were going through, and when they could, they became part of the community that gives back and supports others. They have become educated and educators. They have become volunteers, and they are fierce as advocates and activists.

Join us to get to know them and be inspired by them.

Our favorite bagels from the grocery store are Thomas’ Everything Bagels. Apparently they are everyone’s favorite because the store is often out of them first, and when grocery shopping during the COVID-19 crisis, you have to take whatever you can get.

So one time when plain bagels were all I could find, I googled “Everything Spice for Bagels” to see if I could rig up my own mix. This recipe, and some variations, came up and it is so good, we will never go back to buying the store version of “everything.” We toast the bagel, spread some cream cheese on a half and sprinkle the mix over it.

Sesame Seed, Minced Onions, Sea Salt, Minced Garlic, Poppy Seed

I use 2 T white sesame seeds because they are readily available at the grocery store. But others go to an Indian or health foods store that carries black sesame seeds, and use 1 T white sesame seeds and 1 T black sesame seeds. And one person recommended toasting the sesame seeds first for enhanced flavor. I haven’t tried that yet.

Here’s the recipe:

“Everything” Spice for Bagels

Makes ½ C

2 T poppy seeds
2 T white sesame seeds
1 T + 1 t dried minced garlic
1 T + 1 t dried minced onion
2 t flaked sea salt or coarse salt

I’ve also used the mix to season baked fish and chicken – brush with a little olive oil to hold it in place and add a spritz of lemon juice before serving. Really good! In online comments, others have recommended it as a topping for baked potatoes, as a seasoning for roasted vegetables, and to mix into hummus and dips.

Hope you try it and if you have any other ideas on how to use it, please share.

Women’s Daily Post writer’s group

Women’s Daily Post has several groups of women who meet monthly: the Writer’s Group, Transitions Group and the Women Business Owners Group. We get questions about what the groups are like, what their purpose is, and how the meetings are run, so we are using this morning’s Writer’s Group to give you a better idea.

The Writer’s Group has such a dedicated core of members, it has earned the nickname the O. G. (Original Gangsta!) Writer’s Group. It meets monthly on a Friday morning at Taylor Royall, 6247 Falls Road. The group is limited to 10 participants, so everyone has a chance to share and learn. As always, today’s group was a blend – published and not-yet published fiction and non-fiction book authors, and a screenwriter.

The meeting began with 5-minute updates from everyone about where their projects stand – hopefully sharing some great news, and telling the group what they need from the group.

Synopsis on Detached

today, bridget Pearce had the most exciting news.

Bridget brought the galley of her first book, Detached, which is coming out in June. Detached is a memoir about Bridget’s childhood growing up with a crack-addicted mother, and finding her way out of an abusive home. She’s done everything right and has scheduled interviews, book signings and talks about her book when it comes out.

Shannon has an idea about a book she would like to write about a critical period in her daughter’s illness. She hasn’t started to put it on paper yet, but she did work on something that every writer needs. She has turned an attic space into her writing room – fresh coat of paint!

Debra Diamond and Marlene Trestman

Marlene Trestman always impresses with her thoroughness and organization. She brought her very thick working binder for her next book – a history of the orphanage in New Orleans where she and the subject of her first book, Fair Labor Lawyer, grew up. Since it must be 100% historically accurate, the amount of detail she has to include in her notes to back up every fact in the book is astonishing. Her first book, Fair Labor Lawyer, will come out in a paperback edition this fall.

Debra Diamond is the best-selling author of Diary of a Death Doula. She is contemplating ideas for her third book and got some feedback from the group members.

Kimberly Skyrme has worked in the TV and film industry as a casting director, an acting teacher, and in production. The Writer’s Group was her impetus to create a course for actors to learn more about storytelling. And she is considering writing a book about communication skills from the perspective of an acting teacher.

Susan Weis-Bohlen and Bridget Pearce

Susan Weis-Bohlen’s first book, Ayurvedic Beginner’s Guide, has sold 20,000 copies! She is writing a new book, Seasonal Self-Care Rituals, coming out in June. Susan shared a lot about a fabulous writers retreat that she just attended, The Gateless Writers Retreat in Florida. Hmm, has us thinking about a retreat.

Tina Marie Palmer hasn’t quite decided how she wants to approach the idea she has for a book. But coming to the Writer’s Group is helping her put it together.

A women’s daily post book is in the works!

And Hannah Rodewald and Betsy Goodhue are starting on a book that combines the practice of bullet journaling with journaling life lessons and life coaching. Only six pages in, but it’s a start.

After everyone talked about where they are and got some good suggestions and advice, we used the next hour to answer each other’s questions about writing devices, advances and grants, cottage industries that are servicing self-publishing, and where each of us prefers to write. One topic that interests most of the members is what outside help to get. A developmental editor? A publicist, and if so, do you pay for a whole project or just hourly mentoring? What software is best to help structure your writing? Susan got some advice on adding call-out boxes or highlighting color boxes to emphasize important points in her book. And Marlene gave a great analogy for pulling a manuscript together: she describes it as starting with a watery soup and turning it into a thick gumbo!

The time flew by and left all of us with a lot to digest.

As we said, the Writer’s Group is kept small enough to be of genuine help to the ones who come – like all our groups, reserve your spot asap. A new group is forming to meet once a month at a Baltimore County location in Timonium or Hunt Valley (TBD). If you are interested in joining that group, email hannahkeys@msn.com, and we will make sure to keep you in the loop as we finalize the details.

When we started Women’s Daily Post, we wanted to be able to connect women in our community with other like-minded women. We are thrilled how the organization has grown over the last year — and we are even more excited to announce our NEW membership option!
