Another birthday-themed post? I have birthdays on the brain, thanks to my upcoming one next month. What can I say? I get excited early!! But this post isn’t about my birthday. It’s about my mom’s, which was earlier this year. We weren’t late in celebrating; I just forgot to post about it. That simply won’t […]
Yup, the boy and I had another date! This one didn’t involve a meal, unlike our first date. SSH usually works all day. (It’s a summer job. More about that later.) But he took off a few hours (just for me!!), and we went down to the beach. Don’t worry, y’all: as romantic as it […]
There’s another guy in my life, and his name is: Dad! Because our family was apart for my dad’s birthday in June, we waited to have a big celebration. Said celebration finally took place yesterday. And it began with a stack of vegan German Chocolate Pancakes. (The above photo is from last year’s Father’s Day […]
Smashing Chickpeas (serves 1-2) This recipe is one of my go-to ideas for when I don’t have much time to cook. 1 cup canned chickpeas a little under 1 cup spaghetti sauce or pizza sauce (about 200g) salt, if desied Combine and smash with a fork. Looks weird, tastes terrific!

The other day, I walked into a local sporting-good store, intent on scouting out the Nike running gear. But when I chanced upon the clerk in the shoe department, said running-gear-scouting was forgotten. We talked for over an hour—first about running (which, it turns out, we both love), and then about basically every other topic under the […]
The other day, when I spotted the new Larabar flavors at the store—chocolate chip cookie dough, chocolate chip brownie, carrot cake, and peanut butter chocolate chip—my hand involuntarily reached out to snatch them. (Well, I only got these two, so I did manage to not buy all the newest Larabar flavors.) I love to make […]
Great dessert stories yesterday. And I had no idea that Disney was so accommodating to vegans! I’d always heard it was hard to find vegan food at Disney. Guess that was old information. In terms of vegan desserts, I’ve been pretty lucky in that most of the ones I’ve tried have been yummy. Hello from […]
