Barbara is a trusted source on General Cooking.

Love this. I wish every detox diet had wine, creme fraiche, pecans and blue cheese.

I've made Amanda's radish and pecan grain salad before and it is truly out of this world. It would be a good detox dish for me if only I could keep myself from eating the entire recipe in one sitting. I love that a white wine granita made it to the detox list. My kind of detox!

Weekly inter-wedding detox -- good idea!

Having never REALLY VIEWED brussel sprouts from this distance, I think I'll give them another shot.
