Great photos. The one with the kitty curled up looks like a Magic Eye puzzle. That is one mellow and well loved kitty. Thanks for sharing your photos. I am someone who is working on building a healthier life, although not necessarily a vegan one. I SO VERY MUCH appreciate your blog and recipes and sunny musings as they help me on my path every day.

Happy Easter! Beautiful pictures as always, I like your tiny feet in the 5th pic from the bottom ;) cracked me up!

Hi Ange,

I wanted to ask if you have ever heard of the Rebar cookbook? There is only one Rebar restaurant and it is in Victoria, BC (where I live) and their cookbook is fabulous. It isn’t entirely vegan, but all of the recipes are easily adaptable to your dietary needs. Seriously every recipe I have made has been amazing…it’s definitely worth trying out. Every time I see pictures of your cookbooks I always scan to see if it’s there and so far I haven’t seen it ;) Just thought I’d let you know! You can buy it on amazon.ca!

Reply

Angela April 7, 2012 at 8:52 pm

No I don’t have it, but I do think a couple readers have mentioned it to me before. I will for sure have to check it out. Is it available on Amazon or in stores?

Reply

Amy April 7, 2012 at 10:03 pm

Amazon Canada sells it for around $20!

Angela (Oh She Glows) April 8, 2012 at 7:43 am

Angela April 7, 2012 at 8:57 pm

We love it too…can’t wait to take the same pic in another month or so

Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat April 7, 2012 at 7:51 pm

Looks like fun! I’m trying to figure out what could have been going on in the photo with the bowl of limes and lemons, the books, the colour wheel, and… a kneepad? Lol! Great shots Ange – especially love the ones of you guys outside by the water. Happy Easter!

Reply

Angela April 7, 2012 at 9:01 pm

u calling me weird? hah. The colour wheel is for photography… kneepad is for icing my knee (I use it to secure the ice gel pack in place)…apples and lemons are a left over staging prop from when we had the house for sale. Im sure you will see more of the same next weekend. ;)

i get such a kick out of the fact you’re in oakville now…and random things from my life pop up on your blog i.e. the church i went to when i was little!

Reply

Willow April 7, 2012 at 9:26 pm

Haha – how wonderful! And would you look at that – we have the exact same zester!

Also, I love Sketchie in the baskets – my cats do that all the time, except my baskets are smaller and they barely fit. Still, they cram themselves in their and pretend to be comfortable. :P

Stephanie @ Legally Blinde April 7, 2012 at 9:51 pm

The picture of the harbor is beautiful! And your milky coffee (or tea?) looks so good. That’s a great picture of you on the swing – it’s been too long since I was on one. Love your boots, too! Looks like your weekend is going well. And your guests are lucky to have such a great cook!

Reply

Laura @ She Eats Well April 7, 2012 at 10:41 pm

Hi Angela !

It has been a while since I last visited your blog.
I never commented on any posts before but I feel compelled to this time round.

Thanks Angela, happy Easter to you ! =]
