Who doesn’t love cake, or chocolate cake for that matter? Well, chocolate cake is pretty much my very favorite! I think I was still dreaming of the super rad vegan chocolate ganache cake from my birthday that I was thinking I must make some for Valentine’s Day. If you live in or travel to [...]

Without a doubt, one of my favorite breakfast meals is eggs benedict. This was a traditional Christmas morning meal in my home and a favorite to order out. Sometimes Jason and I use the excuse that Sunday morning is reason enough to make this wonderful meal. Well, I made it a whole new way last [...]

Finally, I am back! I want to share with you a new favorite recipe of mine. I took a favorite Holiday casserole that my Mom used to make and turned it into an appetizer. She would make a layered casserole with creamed spinach, wild rice and mushrooms. Oh, it is glorious. For Thanksgiving I was [...]

This dinner was fantastic!! I can’t wait to make it for friends and family that are curious about vegan eats. [...]

For me , it easier to take fun photos than it is to write a half way entertaining post to go with them. What happens is, I end up with way more photos than I ever post. Then when I sit down to actually write a post, I feel overwhelmed with where to start, or [...]

I haven’t met a hummus I didn’t love. Last weekend I made avocado-hummus. Those were baby avocados that I got at the local produce store near my house. They were 4/$1, how cute is that! I let the hummus blend in the food processor for longer than usual. It resulted in creamier hummus. Or maybe [...]

You know those days when you don’t get up in time to properly get ready for the day…Well, that was me on Wednesday. My back was so dang sore that everything I did, just happened at a slower and more painful rate. I did not fix a lunch for work the night before and told [...]

One of the best things about my day today, was when I completed Jillian Micheals, No More Trouble Zones. I pretty much enjoy all of her workouts, but I will admit they are tough. I usually find myself counting down the time until it’s over. It’s not that I don’t enjoy the workout, it is [...]

Skipped the coffee this morning and replaced it with some juice. I swear, it gives you the same feeling, only better. That is really a monster carrot! They are Italian carrots-cool huh. I made oats before my workout so they would be ready after. I have really been enjoying making overnight oats (no-cook), this was [...]

Today was a cloudy, dark rainy day. Jason had a surprise day off, so we slept in and went to see a matinée. Sherlock Holmes was great. Any Robert Downey fans out there? I had a left-over burrito before we went. That way I woudn’t have any popcorn or soda. The key is to go [...]
