A Grain of Salt

IMG_7263

In my last post, I opened the floor to you to ask some questions about body-image, weight, and eating topics that you wanted to explore.

Lessons in Self-Love

IMG_7263

I’m currently fighting a terrible sore throat and cold that crept up on me all week and hit me full force yesterday. My appetite is shot. My kitchen tools weep. I sound like Kermit the Frog. And the most I can manage to get down is banana soft serve, Green Monsters, and other cold liquids […]

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 […]

IMG_1921_thumb

Some of you might remember last May when we bought a CSA share from Plan B organic farms. It was our first time ever buying a CSA share and we were excited for local and organic food each week. Well to clarify, it was mostly ME who was excited…but excitement is contagious and I think […]

Vegan Carrot Spice Muffins for Grandpa

IMG_4250

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? […]

Friends, Beer, Sun, & More Beer

There is a significant increase in Reno happiness when one has four things: 1) Friends to help 2) BEER 3) Warm weather and sun 4) More BEER :) We spent all day Saturday outdoors in the gorgeous sunshine and warm weather!  We could not believe our luck because we were planning all-day work on the […]

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 […]

Energizing Protein Power Salad

As my mom always says, Good things come to those who wait! Because Eric was such a good sport about my April Fool’s Prank, I made him a batch of The Ultimate Oatmeal Raisin Cookie (with CHOCOLATE chips!) on Saturday. He claimed that he is ‘bringing every single cookie to work’ and he ‘just might […]
