Fudge Babies for $100

Pin It!

[Insert Jeopardy theme song here] Remember the Last Chance Bake Sale? I offered fudge babies to help raise money for charity. Well, I’m thrilled to say that the batch of fudge babies brought in $100! The pressure was certainly on to create a batch of extra-special babies for the winning bidder. She requested two kinds of babies […]

This New Product is a Hit

Pin It!

Have you ever been to a baseball game? What comes to mind when you think of baseball food? Hot dogs, nachos, cheese fries?  Not exactly vegan-friendly. For some reason, I always associate chili with baseball. So, in honor of my Texas Rangers, I incorporated chili into yesterday’s lunch. Normally, I don’t watch tv while I […]

Vegan Piña Colada Pie

Pin It!

. Can I interest you in a slice? Thumbing through Living in the Raw Desserts, by Rose Lee Calabro, I encountered a dilemma: how would I possibly choose what to make first?? Blueberry cheesecake, German Chocolate Cake, Fudge Brownies Supreme… Oh how I’d love to have 5 million sous-chefs so I could try all of […]

Vegan at a Wedding

Pin It!

If you have a special diet, does this sound familiar? You receive an invitation to a wedding, and the RSVP portion asks you to check off one of two things: chicken or fish. Well, obviously vegetarians do not want to be served chicken or fish. And people with allergies or special dietary needs also can’t […]

A Post About Boobs… And Chocolate!

Pin It!

I give, to you, the 32C cups. The 3 stands for “3 steps” and the 2C stands for “chocolate and coconut.” What’d you think I meant? 😉 Yes, the title might be a stretch, but when I thought of cups and then remembered it was National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I had to tie the […]

Cravings

Pin It!

People ask me all the time: Are you ever tempted to eat non-vegan food?     For the first month after I became a vegetarian, meat cravings definitely hit! In fact, I can remember one specific time where I had my nose right up to a hamburger, thinking “Maybe I should just give in and […]

Soup for the Italian Lover’s Soul

Pin It!

Happy chocolate-covered Sundae… oops, I mean Sunday. Here was my lunch yesterday: Italian Kitchen Sink Soup, an organic peach, and two slices of buttered (Earth Balance) Ezekiel toast. Just like with some of my stir fries and salads, this soup came about due to a need to “save” a bunch of veggies in the fridge. […]

Your turn to Talk

Pin It!

Happy Saturday, Chocolate chippies! . I’m so glad y’all liked the idea of the Almond Butter-Pom Sandwich yesterday. Speaking of fun ideas, I’m having a bit of a problem: There are so many recipes I want to share that when I go to my computer to write a post, I’m overwhelmed. I don’t know which […]

A Free Trip to California

Pin It!

And I can’t even go! 🙁 About a month ago, I received a really cool email from the Pom Wonderful people, inviting me to visit their factory in California, all expenses paid. In my mind, my bags were packed and I was already there… Until I remembered school. Darn school. My mom kept saying, “Katie, […]

I’m a Lazy Butt today

Pin It!

It took all my strength to not run today, as the weather was gorgeous, once again. But, like I’ve mentioned before, part of my exercise philosophy includes not running every day. And it had been a while since I last took a rest day. So back to beddie byes it was for me. Well, not […]
