A CD “Review” from THE ‘Makin’ Kids HAPPY’ EXPERT!


My Good Food Friends –

Katherine Pryor is SUCH FUN to be around.  I describe her as a walking CELEBRATION of LIFE!  No one CHEERIER!

Trouble with children ENJOYING Spinach? No problem! Katherine is Author of a delightful little children’s book, “Sylvia’s Spinach”.


      2a      1

Trouble with children WANTING to grow ZUCCHINI? Once again, no problem! Her SECOND Book, “Zora’s Zucchini”, was released this August.



Katherine teamed up with the Artist Illustrator from her first Book, Anna Raff, New York City, and Publisher, Readers To Eaters.

Here’s an entertaining Interview with Katherine on Food Sleuth Radio by Host Melinda Hemmelgarn, RD.

Katherine has a popular and much-in-demand  in-School reading-directly-to-the-Children Show to include her little red wagon FILLED with Spinach to tasteand they DO!  I’ve SEEN it!


The “Sylvia’s Spinach” story is so popular that now it’s in paperback to reduce the price to help get its GOOD EATING Message into even wider distribution.

So, that’s two down, S & Z, and 24 more to go. She’ll have her own Fruit and Vegetable Library.  STAY TUNED!

I know Katherine, and HER  HAPPINESS and THEIR  HAPPINESS is not made up for this pic! It’s REAL!!!! She does that to KIDS!


Katherine’s review of our soon-to-be-released “CHANGE YOUR FOOD – CHANGE YOUR LIFE!™ Presents: GOOD LiViN’” Compilation CD Album:

“Hi Dennis,

I finally had a chance to listen to the whole CD in one sitting this weekend. My husband & I listened to it on a drive out to a friend’s house in Redmond, which seemed perfect, as I imagine a lot of people will listen to it while driving!

When I first held the CYF-CYL CD in my hands, I wondered how on earth all those different artists and genres would possibly fit together, but you’ve done it! The album is a celebration of life and the feel-good power of real food. The artists deliver their message with passion, humor, and the conviction of converts who’ve seen the dark side of industrial food but who can finally see the light.

WARNING: GOOD LiViN’  was so darn infectious I was still singing along hours after the music stopped. Then again, that’s the kind of viral message we need to be spreading!

GOOD LiViN’  is my FAVORITE song on the album, although Pastor Wyatt with ‘Til My Change Comes is a close runner-up!

GOOD LiViN’ – LIVE! and 7 HOT MINUTES of ‘Til My Change Comes – LIVE!” — both are incredibly powerful.

I’ve thought a lot about how I would “review” this for you, and hope you know how seriously I’ve taken this. I believe in what you’re doing & am so, so impressed at your vision and the talent of all it took to create this.”

A WSFFN Dinner Party!


My Good Food Friends –

I attended the Washington Sustainable Food & Farming Network’s Fundraising Dinner last year, and it was soooooooo DELICIOUSLY  FUN, and such an important Event in support of GOOD FOOD, that I thought I’d better bring my camera and take some pictures



to be able to share the Evening with those who, UNFORTUNATELY, weren’t there. AND maybe encourage a reader or two to make a contribution in support of WSFFN’S ‘good works’.



When you see the pics of the FOOD we savored, you’ll be envious! See YOU next year, huh.

The Washington Sustainable Food & Farming Network is a nonprofit organization that uses Education, Organizing and Advocacy to advance Sustainable Food and Farming Programs and Policies in Washington State.




The Organic Good Food Dinner was so extensive that it took TWO Menu Boards to announce it!

Was THIS Caesar Salad GOOD?


Well, YES!


All the DELISH Food was donated by 24 Farms and Companies.






 Charlie’s Produce Apple Oatmeal Crisp with Sage Chantilly, Tony’s Coffee Ice Cream and Chocolate Biscotti!


I made TWO visits to the Dessert Bar. JUST HAD TO! Yum!  Along with ONE MORE glass of Organic HARD Apple/Pear Cider!


What I love about The Washington Sustainable Food & Farming Network is that REAL Farmers work, advocate and lead  their Farm 2 School Program.


Here she is LIVE!
