Deirdre's Corner

Green Your Cleaners This Spring: The doldrums of winter can feel endless, and though many of us remain mired in winter’s grip, spring is sooner than you think. With just under one month until the official start of the next season, it’s time to start thinking about spring cleaning. Whether this means cleaning out clogged closets or scrubbing the tub and tiles until they can shine no more, clearing your home of clutter and debris is beneficial to both physical and psychological well-being.

Deirdre's Book Pick Of The Week

Methylation Diet and Lifestyle by Dr. Kara Fitzgerald & Romilly Hodges, MS, CNS - The “dance of methylation” extends far beyond supplementing with B12 and methylated folate. Indeed, long term outcome studies using this approach are lacking, and research suggests caution is advised with regard to imbalanced hypermethylation. However, much can be done to safely support methylation balance.

Deirdre's Dish Picks


Ranch Tacos - Recipe by Deirdre Imus, The Imus Ranch: Cooking for Kids and Cowboys - I recommend using all organic non GMO ingredients - Seitan is sometimes called wheat meat because it’s made from gluten, which is the protein component of wheat with the starch removed.  There are recipes for making it from scratch, which is pretty labor-intensive, but luckily you can also buy it ready-made at most health food stores.  We love these meaty and cheesy tacos.

If you have a fond memory from your childhood about some of the dishes we post please click here to contact us, we would love to hear your story.

The Imus Ranch Foundation

With the closing of The Imus Ranch For Kids with Cancer, The Imus Ranch Foundation was formed to donate 100% of all donations previously devoted to The Imus Ranch for Kids with Cancer to various other charities whose work and missions compliment those of the ranch. The initial donation from The Imus Ranch Foundation was awarded to Tackle Kids Cancer, a program of The HackensackUMC Foundation and the New York Giants.  In addition, once the Imus Ranch for Kids with Cancer is sold, 100% of those funds will be contributed to The Imus Ranch Foundation.

    You Too Can Be Jesse Jackson: The Oil Spill Disaster

    People love the ocean
    So every Summer they get a notion,
    pack their cars with devotion,
    oops almost forgot the sun tan lotion,
    load the kids with lots of commotion,
    check the internet for promotions,
    and drive for hours, bumper to bumper, in slow-motion
    That’ll really try your emotions

    You arrive at the coast
    your vacation is toast
    because of some oil line breach.
    Damn, ain’t that a beach.

    Goldman’s Lloyd Blankfein
    can relax his mind,
    because come dinner time,
    BP’s CEO will be the world’s most maligned,
    threat to mankind.

    Tony Hayward, BP’s big bitch
    could’ve prevented an eco-disaster with a simple kill switch.
    That’s really sleazy
    Turning New Orleans, The Big Easy
    into the Big Greasy.

    Fuzzy Wuzzy wuz a bear.
    He like to fish in the Delta from his folding chair.
    He grabbed his trusty old pole,
    and headed to his favorite hole,
    but what he saw hurt his soul.
    A tear in his eye, oil up to his wader pants thigh,
    Fuzzy screamed die BP, Die!
    Fuzzy went insane.
    He grabbed his rifle, and bullets; over 600 grains.
    And Fuzzy began to train.
    With 50 caliber thunder, Fuzzy was about to bring the rain.
    While thinking of his wildlife friends,
    wearing cammo so he could blend,
    Fuzzy checked the wind and adjusted his scope.
    For those responsible, time to abandon hope.
    If you see flash from the bushes
    it’s time to make your last wishes.
    Because when you get oil on a Fuzzy Bear’s tail
    you’ll have a Hell Hound on your trail. 

    The environment thanks you!
