He had a rocky start to 2011, but his strength carried him through some very tough times and he enjoyed a happy and stable summer and fall season.

IMG_3764_thumb1

  Making a pie from scratch has to be one of the most feared tasks of all time. I would say it ranks right up there with bread baking, public speaking, and drinking something green. I always had this expectation that everything had to go perfectly for the pie to turn out. If my dough […]

Vegan Holiday Dinner Ideas + A New Recipe

IMG_4410

One of my frequently asked questions around this time of the year is always, “What vegan recipes can I make for my upcoming holiday meals that will impress the skeptics?” Eating vegetarian, vegan, or other special diet can be challenging, especially around the holidays. It doesn’t help matters when “Uncle Joe” is ranting and raving […]

So how do I put this nicely……..biscotti season is going to be slightly delayed. Well, this is a bit awkward now isn’t it. The biscotti recipe that we fell in love with and made twice already turned into a dry piece of junk when I attempted to make it for the third time last night. […]

IMG_4243

Before you tell me you hate eggplant and cast off this recipe, hear me out: I’m not a big eggplant fan either. I think Eggplant is pretty spongy and bland.

Imagine this scene: Last night, Eric and I got dressed up (me as the Queen of Hearts, him as the Scream character) and we stuffed 40 treat bags for the trick or treaters. They were bursting with candy and small toys like leap frogs and mini games. Last year we got around 20 kids, so […]
