What’s “The Platter”?
The Blooming Platter offers a growing collection of recipes for creative appetizers, beverages, snacks, soups, salads, sides and entrees with a tendency toward ethnic fusion dishes, lightened-up comfort foods and updated classics with a twist. A baker since childhood, I also include a burgeoning selection of dessert recipes that will tempt even the staunchest dairy-lover. Here's to compassionate plant-based cooking and eating!
About Betsy DiJulio
When Betsy—an award-winning art teacher and practicing artist—is not teaching, making art, reading, writing, or walking her new dogs, Patsy and Urban, she can often be found in downward dog on her yoga mat.
And after that? A little food, a little more wine, and a lot of communing with friends, family, and students (well, no wine for her students).
In addition to authoring The Blooming Platter Cookbook, Betsy is a regular contributor, columnist, or featured writer for:
- Coastal Virginia Magazine
- The Virginian-Pilot
Look for the occasional link here on her website.
Besides art and cooking, Betsy admits to being a little obsessed with:
-Anything eco- or animal-friendly
-Artisanal and small business ventures
-Design in its many forms, especially interiors and landscapes

I appreciate that so much, Kristina. And I’m very sorry about your loss, as well. How fortunate we are to experience a bond that causes so much sadness when it is no more.

So sweet, Aimee; thank you. I miss him terribly, but feel so fortunate, as you say, to have had the relationship we did. One of my friends who lives far away said that in every photo he could tell that Huff loved being loved by me. That just about did me in. Happy holidays to you!
