One Less. One More.

small3DI have exciting news! After seven years in the making, my hubby Robbie Vorhaus’ new book, One Less. One More. – Follow Your Heart. Be Happy. Change Slowly. (Storytelling, Inc.) has launched on Amazon. Although I’m not very objective, you will love One Less. One More. (OLOM) as both motivation and inspiration for raising your ch’i, and following your heart.

Robbie, a renowned leadership advisor and crisis expert, outlines an ageless formula that, when applied slowly, steadily and continuously, results in significant, life-long happiness and success.

Drawing on decades of advising the rich, famous and powerful, from world leaders, entrepreneurs, rock stars, sports legends, and others, Robbie discovered a fascinating common thread, a remarkable connection, an extraordinary link among his truly happy and succesful clients, family and friends. They all, at one point in their lives, boldly and consciously chose to change their lives and follow their hearts.

In One Less. One More. like a modern day handbook, Robbie outlines seven easy and doable steps for enduring personal and professional change: 1.) Start now. 2.) Come present. 3.) Consciously choose to follow your heart, be happy and change slowly. 4.) Today, choose one less negative, resistant, or bad feeling, thought or action, and let it go – One Less. 5.) Today, choose one more positive or good feeling, thought or action, and embrace it – One More. 6.) Celebrate your progress. 7.) Repeat tomorrow.

Using real life examples, Robbie addresses questions like, “What is my purpose?” “What if I fail?” or “What if I can’t hear my heart’s calling?” One Less, One More’s chapters include: Believe, Prepare, Commit, Transition, Crisis-The Ultimate Challenge, Choice and Mastery.

I encourage you to follow Robbie on his facebook page, Instagram, Twitter, and sign-up for his newsletters, updates, and announcements, with the added benefit of receiving a complimentary sample chapter from One Less. One More. If you would like to purchase a copy of the book, go to:

Flashback Snacks

by Candace Vorhaus on June 23, 2014

www.randomhouse-1I am so excited to receive Jennifer Steinhauer’s new book, Treat Yourself.  Reading through this delicious, baking book brings back memories of my childhood that I had long forgotten.  After endless hours of experimentation, Jennifer Steinhauer, “cracks the code” for 70 classic, childhood snacks such as Twinkies, Mallowmars, Oreo’s, my favorite – Funny Bones, and many more.  Using fresh, wholesome ingredients, Jennifer brings back the memorable flavors of these iconic snacks and treats.

Growing up in Garden City, Long Island, I spent my summer days with friends and neighbors at the town pool.  Taking a break from swimming, we would climb the hill to the snack bar and buy an ice cream sandwich, a Strawberry Shortcake ice cream pop, or a pack of Chicken in a Biskit. With each crunch of a Chicken in a Biskit’s salty, chicken soup flavored cracker, I remember looking inside for a bit of chicken.  No chicken there.

As I got older, I discovered the chocolaty/peanut buttery goodness of Funny Bones and it became my favorite lunchtime snack, until I had to give up lunchtime snacks.  Working with the Girl Scouts I discovered Tagalongs and our family favorite, Samoa’s.  Now that I am more conscious of how I’m eating, I’m happy to be able to make a yummy, nostalgic snack with healthy ingredients when I want to treat myself.

I’m still trying to decide which recipe to make first.  If you’d like to try a few, here’s a sneak peek.  So, what’s your favorite childhood snack?
