My Unhealthy Habit

Pin It!

But first, a healthy habit: eating breakfast. PB-maple sandwich, with soy-free Vegan Greek Yogurt. Then: a quickie clean-up, ‘cause I was due outside to bask in the rays with a friend.  Errr, make that two friends. Where there’s sun, Henry follows. As I type this, in fact, he is sleeping right in front of the […]

Redefining Fast Food

Pin It!

Lately, I’m needing to come up with even quicker meals. Katie, your recipes are already quick and easy. How much simpler can they get? What about a meal in 5 minutes? Sorry to Rachael Ray, but 30 minutes to dinner sounds like a long time to me. Sometimes, 5 minutes is all you’ve got! The […]

“How to eat Fried Worms” (vegan-style)

Pin It!

Does anyone remember the book from elementary school: How to eat Fried Worms? That’s what came to mind as I assembled today’s lunch. I started out with a monster salad (mixed greens, spinach, and lots of chard), with sesame-ginger dressing and crunchy almonds. So far so good. But then, when I cooked up some of my […]

Kisses you DON’T want!

Pin It!

Happy Friday, chocolate chips!   What was the best birthday present you ever received? The best birthday present I ever received came from this guy. And since our fateful first meeting, he’s continued to shower me with gifts every single day! (Sadly, some of these gifts are wet and slobbery and I wish I could […]

I didn’t eat Birthday Cake?

Pin It!

No. Instead, I had pie. And, shock of all shocks, it wasn’t chocolate. I wanted to change it up a bit from last year’s chocolate mousse pie. So, this year I chose velvety, homemade Raw Key Lime Pie. (For the recipe, click on the link and read the optional ingredients). Yeah, it was as good as […]

Cinnamon-Raisin Breakfast Pudding

Pin It!

Do you resemble a certain member of your family? But first, another shot from dinner at the Clay Pit. And a close up, because when I was looking at this photo, I saw something that made me stop short. It’s super-obvious who takes after whom in our family: I am my mom and my sister […]

My Birthday din-din

Pin It!

Because we had a Labor Day Barbecue to attend on Monday, my parents treated me to a birthday dinner Sunday night. Hey, I was born in England, so technically, it was my birthday at the exact time we celebrated… Not that I didn’t celebrate on Monday as well. Two birthdays are better than one. Tell […]

"Peanut Butter and Honey" is sooo over

Pin It!

It’s all about peanut butter and maple now. . I’m so so happy that you all liked the “Liquid Oatmeal” recipe. D’ya know what goes well with oatmilk (or any milk)? Peanut butter! Yesterday, I made a sandwich that I’m now planning to recreate many times in the future. For the sandwich: I first warmed […]

How to Milk an Oat

Pin It!

First, position yourself so that you’re under the oat. Next, pull really hard. Really hard. Ok, backtrack. Milking an oat is nothing like milking a cow! . So many of you were interested in the Raw Cashew Milk the other day that I figured it’s high time to post another “milk” recipe onto which I’ve […]
