The cooking classes and weekly check-ins are amazing! I am thrilled to have this tool on my journey to ultimate health and wellness!"

"Having access to articles, recipes, and the forum is definitely a great way to supplement the information and support that I get elsewhere. The guidelines are clearly spelled out, and the community is very open, supportive, and welcoming. Each challenge gives me a chance to revisit my goals, re-educate myself, and continue to improve my health and lifestyle."

"Even though I’ve been toying with the vegan lifestyle for a dozen years, and whole food, plant-based for two, I still feel like I’m taking baby steps in many ways. In CNS Kitchen, I get the help I need. Chef Del and Sharme have created a community of folks who are honest about their struggles and kind to each other. A group like this makes all the difference."

— Kelly Klepfer

"The CNS Kitchen Community is like The Little Engine That Could—it offers encouragement, tools, and strategies to keep one moving in the right direction. For a newcomer, it provides lots of foundational information. What I like the most about the community is the non-judgmental atmosphere Del and Sharme have established—it’s unlike any other I've seen. Its design says: "We really want you to succeed.""

— Geri Ann Laiacona

"I have been so motivated and inspired by this community. CNS Kitchen provides a common ground for listening, sharing and working through challenges. With host Sharme Ridley and renowned Chef Del Sroufe at the helm, I like to think of CNS Kitchen as a fully-loaded kitchen where family and friends meet up in various groups—an awesome community!"

— Sandi Quash

"After years of having zero support, joining CNS Kitchen was like finding the family I had been missing! Not only have I felt supported, I have also learned so much and made new friendships. I continue to learn and be uplifted every time I sign in to CNS Kitchen. It has been life changing!"

I am occasionally asked about my favorite sandwich, and I can sometimes see a look of disappointment when I answer. Because for me, it often comes back to peanut butter. I would eat peanut butter every day with no complaints if I had to. But I also like to go outside of my comfort zone now and then. Here are a few of my favorite sandwiches when I want something different.
No one likes cookies more than I do. I love them so much that I opened my own vegan bakery. But during the summer, when it's too hot to turn on the oven, I make no-bake cookies. They are quick, easy treats that will put a smile on any face. And these recipes are free from processed sugar and flour—a bonus treat for your health!
