Check out what arrived this week… 2.5 cubic yards of triple mix soil for the veggie garden. :) Thrilling, I know. After weeks of looking at different types of soils, I went with a triple mix from Van Beek’s. It’s made from composted manure, black loam, and sandy topsoil. I couldn’t find ‘certified’ organic anywhere, […]

On Tuesday, Eric said the Enchiladas with Cilantro Avocado Cream Sauce would be the best recipe all week. Today, I politely disagree. :) (And I secretly thought he would be right!)  After making this recipe yesterday, I announced it was the best recipe of the week. Eric rolled his eyes.

The Meal Planning Monster Returns

IMG_1256_thumb

As you may know, I’m not normally a meal planner. I like to cook by the seat of my pants and just make what speaks to me on that day. I’m the same way with my blog posts too. I rarely know what I’m blogging about until I sit down to write and I don’t […]

Whole-Grain Vegan Carrot Cake Loaf with Lemon Glaze

IMG_4746

Growing up, I was always taking pictures. Of everything. My love affair started with a classic pink Polaroid camera and I would save up my allowance to buy new film. Once I got my first point and shoot digital camera, I rarely left home without it. My family would always teasingly call me, ‘the little […]

IMG_4603

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.

There are 4 words I never thought I would hear in the same sentence: ‘Thirty Thousand’ and ‘Deck quote’ We had a decking company do a quote on our deck because we wanted a professional’s opinion on whether we should replace the 25 year old deck beams. We were also just curious what kind of […]
