What Your Oven Isn’t Telling You

IMG_8460

According to a test by Cook’s Illustrated in 2011, different ovens set to the same temperature can vary by as much as 90 degrees. Yes….90 degrees. If you are an avid baker or cook (or even just an occasional one), this news should be a bit concerning. Or maybe this news is relief; you now […]

Mini Peanut Butter Cups in a Jar

Allergy Info: No Bake/Raw

IMG_8867

Last week on Twitter, I asked you guys if you’d rather see a main course or dessert recipe for the upcoming Easter holiday. Of course, many of you vegan goblins said you wanted BOTH! I like the way you think. Actually, the majority vote was for the main course recipe, easily by a 80/20 split. […]

Lightened Up Spring Stuffing

Allergy Info: Low Sugar, Nut Free

IMG_8778

A couple weeks ago, a reader named Cara emailed me with a recipe request for a vegan spring stuffing. Her complaint with traditional stuffing was that it felt too much like autumn instead of spring; it tends to be heavy, instead of light and fresh. Cara is onto something here, don’t you think? I love […]

Rooms & Random Ramblings

Sadly, the super tidy “after” living and dining room didn’t last very long! Real life happened. Or should I say I happened. I always have good intentions when it comes to cleaning up clutter, but often, more important things just get in the way. I’m trying to start a daily habit to tidy up clutter […]

Back in 2008, I was a real Larabar junkie. As I walked to my car after work, I was often desperate for a boost in energy to fuel my 75 minute commute home. Larabars gave me enough energy to get through the long stretch until we had a late dinner around 8pm. I was rarely […]

Living & Dining Room: Before and After Pictures

IMG_8432

As promised our furniture arrived on Friday…it was quite the exciting day. This is the first living/dining furniture that Eric and I have purchased new in the 12 years that we’ve been together; everything else we had was a hand me down from family or bought on Craigslist. Exciting indeed. Oddly enough, all the furniture […]

Green Monster Vegan Overnight Oats & Getting Back Into Running

20100906IMG_2343

After a 1 week break from workouts, I finally felt like I had enough energy to get back into exercise yesterday. My body was literally craving a run! It was also a good excuse to take a much needed break from unpacking. For some pre-run fuel, I tried out a Vega snack bar that I […]

Did you guys catch this comment from Danielle yesterday? “In our last apartment our sneaky cat opened the bathroom cupboards under the sink, finding a small hole that led from our apartment to the neighbors. Imagine our neighbors surprise when he got out of the shower that morning only to find a strange cat on […]
