Introducing a new partner: CheckUp & Choices

is an online, confidential, personalized, evidence-based, year-long program that helps people consider their drinking or drug use and then develop the skills to be successful if they decide to change. All of C&C’s interventions have been evaluated in randomized clinical trials that were supported by grants from NIAAA/NIH.

The program offers modules based on cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) techniques that help people achieve the goal of drinking moderation or abstinence. They also offer abstinence-oriented programs for marijuana, opioids and stimulants. Each protocol lasts one year and has empirically supported, cognitive behavioral tools to help you better deal with triggers, resist urges and reduce your drug related problems.


"Very helpful. I like how it built on itself as it went along. I also liked the tone of the language on the site. It felt very understanding and non-judgmental.”

Read about CheckUp & Choices in the New York Times.

Please read the article from August's Parents magazine about motherhood and drinking.

Upside-Down NectarineCobbler

One the author's crowd-pleasing favorites (perfect for a barbecue) is this recipe for upside down cobbler, which was inspired by an old recipe by Nancy Silverton.

It might sound strange but it really works. You start with a healthy portion of vanilla-infused melted butter, then you spoon in the thick batter and top it with fresh fruit tossed in a little sugar. The result is a crisp-chewy, buttery, fruity, cakey dessert unlike anything else you’ve ever had. But my suggestion is to eat it while it’s still warm (it doesn’t keep well). I kind of doubt you’ll have a problem doing that.

TOTAL COOK TIME: 1 hour 20 minutes

  • 1/2 vanilla bean pod
  • 6 ripe yellow or white nectarines
  • 1/3 cup sugar (or less)
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1 3/4 cups buttermilk
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
