Fall Returns – as does The Chef Maven

The Chef Maven Returns to Blogging

Hey Everyone!  Thank you for reading my blog – I haven’t been updating it much – ok like a year and a half – but that is because I have been very busy running and operating a shop in the beautiful area of the Hudson Valley in a city called Beacon. The shop is named Heart & Soul - it’s an apothecary and aromatherapy shop where we offer organic tease, herbs, spices, and so much more.

You can now easily buy the same spices as The Chef Maven uses in her recipes.

So I thank you for sticking around – and I look very much forward in reconnecting with you my readers. I am looking forward to completely overhauling this website to not only update its look but ease of use. A lot happens technologically speaking within just a few years on the web hasn’t it? So while I update this site feel free to catch us on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter as NYHeartnSoul – we look forward to hearing from you.

Today on Facebook, I am sure a lot of you saw several posts regarding which food companies and products to avoid that are using GMO’s in their food production. So what are GMO’s and who or what is Monsanto?

Both are very valid questions. We all need to know and learn more about the effects of GMO’s on us and on our population’s health as a whole. And it is also very inportant to learn which companies use GMO’s in their food ingredients to make their products.

This is what was shared on Facebook within the past few weeks:


That’s a huge list of foods we ought to avoid, huh?!
