I’m so Thankful

Yes, I know it’s not Thanksgiving yet. But it might as well be for how thankful I am. First of all, I am so extremely thankful that I started this blog because it’s enabled me to “meet” so many amazing people. Every little comment and every email message I get just makes me so happy. […]

Vegan Cupcakes take over my Spanish Class

Spanish literature classes can be pretty hard-core at times (imagine reading and analyzing Shakespeare… not in your native tongue!).

Sometimes you feel like a nut

Not only will roasting them bring out a rich flavor, it will also make your kitchen smell delicious. […]
