Last night’s Birthday bash was a good time! I was a bit slow moving when I got up this morning, but it was nothing a little juice, water, hot yoga, and Union Square Café Bar Nuts couldn’t fix… Eric asked me to make the famous Union Square Café Bar Nuts -a double batch! Everyone always […]

A Mother Is…

IMG (3)

A Mother is…selfless in every way. A Mother is someone who lets you cry in her arms after your boyfriend dumps you and tells you that you don’t need a boy to be fabulous. You already are. A Mother is someone who gets up early to make your lunch for school and sneaks in a […]

We had a wonderful time with our family this weekend, but our trip was shortened by a pesky website hacker! Part of Eric’s job involves supporting a couple major websites (that receive between 1-15 million hits per day), one of which got hacked on Friday. He spent all night Friday, Saturday morning, and Saturday afternoon […]

I was looking for a dinner that could be prepared ahead of time and was laid back & fuss-free…Mexican food fit the bill. This week has been insanely busy with bakery orders, so I needed something that would […]

Vegan Carrot Spice Muffins for Grandpa

To say that I had baking indecision yesterday would be an understatement! Whenever I am time-crunched and baking for someone special, my mind just draws a blank and nothing seems right. I looked over my recipes page for a quick + easy recipe that was calling my name… Snickerdoodles? Too Christmas-y. Pumpkin Gingerbread with Buttercream? […]

Vegan Lentil Walnut Loaf with Sweet Potato

IMG_4015

Despite what you may think, living with a food blogger is not always peachy! Aside from the new dishes, plentiful leftovers, and a freezer packed with goodies, there are dishes, messes, computer troubles, steep grocery bills, minor breakdowns, and taste-testings gone wrong. Despite all of this, Eric’s biggest complaint is that I rarely make the […]

Hey guys! The technical issues persist on!! I thought I lost all of my pictures from the meet-up last night because I went to load them on my laptop and all I got was a memory card error. Gulp. I tried to stay calm because I know Eric would save the day- and he did! […]
