Describe your Perfect Date

Miss Rhode Island: That’s a tough one. I would have to say April 25th. Because it’s not too hot, not too cold, all you need is a light jacket.

Vegan Thursdays, Take One

Pin It!

Cheated a bit and had this week’s Vegan Thursday on Wednesday so I could blog about it on Thursday. But of course I’ll still be eating vegan today (the real Vegan Thursday), too. Last night, I tried a new product and resurrected an old fave: Butternut fries! A big bowl of whole-wheat angel-hair pasta (tossed […]

Omnivores and Veganism

Pin It!

When I first started writing this, it was just meant to be a simple reply to a comment I received from someone interested in veganism (Hi Cecilia! *Waves*). But by the time I’d finished writing my answer to her question, I discovered I’d written so much that I should just turn my reply into a […]

Vegan Thursdays

Pin It!

I’ve never really taken seriously the tradition of making new year’s resolutions.  However, I have a friend who is serious about her Resolutions. And this year she called me, all excited, to tell me about her idea: After reading my post, Help for Omnivores interested in Veganism, she decided that one day a week, she’s […]

Make your own Liquid Crack

Pin It!

(Oh boy will I probably regret this title when I see the resulting Google searches it may get.). A few years ago, I ventured into a little, unknown cafe in NYC called Bonobos. Although the cafe was quaint, it was also very quiet.  My mom and I were the only ones in the joint for […]

Running In The Cold Weather

Pin It!

Upon seeing the title of this post, the following may have crossed your mind: “What on earth is a girl from Texas doing writing a post about cold-weather running?” Admittedly, I’m not forced to deal with below-zero temperatures, ice storms, or blizzards like those of you in locations such as Canada. But Texas winters can be […]

Hats off to the Christmas Season of 2009

Pin It!

You prepare for the Christmas season all year (the stores do, anyway!), and then just like that, it’s over… and you have to prepare again the next year! But even with all the rushing, the stress, and the mess, it’s hard to not love that time of year. So, until next December, hats off to the Christmas season. Hats such as… A hot […]

Christmas Cookie Crepe Cakes

Above, a full plate of Oatmeal Cookie Crepe Cakes Hmmm, but this looks too neat and tidy… That’s better. Above, with little Soyatoo dots and homemade Smashberry Jam. For the jam: It’s so easy!  Just boil your berries… and then SMASH them!! That’s it! After breakfast, it was time for presents! (Well-fed parents = Much happier […]

Have yourself a Chocolate-Covered Christmas

Pin It!

(I’m not really at my computer on Christmas morning. I scheduled this post!) Hope everyone who celebrates is having a very merry Christmas. Here in north Texas, we have our first white Christmas since 1926! Two days ago it was 78 degrees, then the next day it was 20 and snowing. Normally, I’d rather have […]
