Barbara embraces the ideal that cooking should be relaxing and fun. So much so, that she hosts the PBS show “Stress Free Cooking” and authors a book by the same name. Her most recent cookbook, “The Diabetes Seafood Diet,” won the Gourmand Cookbook Award for Fish and Seafood. She is a contributor to the American Heart Association’s, “No Fad Diet,” and the “Super Foods RX Series,” by Dr. Stephen Pratt. A culinary educator at heart, she also continues to teach at various cooking schools.
