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 […]
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 […]
Raw buckeyes! Little bombs of deliciousness that literally burst in your mouth.

Sounds much yummier than The Princess and the Pea, right? And certainly much yummier than The Princess and the Knee Happy Birthday, little sister! With the pink hue and the princess decoration, it almost looks like a carbon copy of the cake I made for her last year My sister is a girl who knows […]
But first, a recipe update: I added 1/8 tsp of vanilla to the Raw Cashew-Vanilla Bars, which took the flavor to a new level. Plus, I wanted to show off the cute owl candle.

Here it is: A Candle Warmer! Looks rather boring, yeah? But it’s not! It’s a really cool tool, good for so much more than warming candles. You can use it to melt or warm coconut butter, vegan butter (yay—no splattering/popping, which is what happens if you try melting vegan butter in the microwave), peanut butter, […]
