I love eating delicious food. And I love creating new recipes. But I don’t think I would consider myself a foodie: what I like about blogging and about making up recipes is the creativity involved.  I don’t watch cooking shows, don’t read cookbooks in my spare time, don’t spend hours upon hours thinking about food, […]

Soy-Haters Rejoice

Pin It!

Super-short post, because then I have to run. A few of you asked about a soy alternative for the Whipped Cream in a Bowl. Rejoice, my friends; an alternative does exist! Simply sweeten the plain Agar Pudding Base to your liking. Just because you don’t like soy shouldn’t mean you’re left out of all the fun.

Help for Haiti

Pin It!

I’m really short on time, but I wanted to quickly pass along a way to help raise money for those in Haiti: Donate to the Red Cross or text the number 90999, which charges $10 and goes toward the Red Cross as well. Sorry this post isn’t aesthetically-pleasing; I don’t have time for fun, fancy photos to enhance […]

The 3000-Calorie Post

Pin It!

2011 Edit: Recently, I discovered that some people have been using this post as a guideline for how (and how much) to eat.
