Merry Christmas from Wheeler’s Frozen Dessert Co!

Pin It!

What? What’s that you say? You say that Christmas came and went almost a month ago? Au Contraire, my blogging friends! Christmas showed up at my house just last week, in the form of FIVE containers of vegan ice cream! The company is based in Boston, but the super-friendly Wheeler’s folks felt so sorry for […]

Get in the Game

Pin It!

Some of my friends are avid football players (and football fans). So, last week, when the New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys were in a playoff game, one of my friends decided it was a good excuse to throw a party. I saw it as a good excuse for something else– making cupcakes!! Those burly, […]

Genghis Grill

Pin It!

I consider myself fortunate to live in Dallas, with a bounty of fabulous eateries mere minutes from my apartment. So on a busy day, when there’s no time to cook a gourmet meal, I can still eat well by dining in one of these vegan-friendly establishments. Among the aforementioned restaurants is Genghis Grill, an omnivorous […]

Better-n-Rice Pudding

Pin It!

Me Want Pudding! One day last week, this chocolate-covered vegan woke up with a sudden urge to make rice pudding. So she rose groggily from her bed, put on her bunny slippers, and ambled down to the kitchen. Soon the counter was piled high with pudding ingredients—cinnamon, raisins, soymilk, vanilla… now where was the rice? […]

Sunny Days

Pin It!

Texas weather is weird. Case in point: it was in the 20s three days ago, but today it’s 77! We took advantage of the warmer weather by going for a long bike ride and then sipping tropical smoothies in our backyard. Molly enjoyed the warmer weather, too. Rubber Ducky, you’re the one… You make bath-time […]

S is also for Soup!

Pin It!

I love soup– all kinds of soup; and I’m happy to eat soup in any sort of weather (yes, even in the 105-degree Texas summers). But the best time for soup is on those blustry winter days when all one wants to do is snuggle up in front of a fire. When the temperature dropped […]

S is for Santa

Pin It!

Yes, I know it’s past New Year’s already… but I still have Christmas photos to post.                         Above, Molly, tries to sniff out her presents… where could they be???                   I found one!       […]

Will the Christmas-Cookie Posts EVER end???

Pin It!

I promise that my next post will NOT be about Christmas cookies. But until then… more cookies! The pictures below are of my mom, sister, and me making vegan linzer thimble cookies.               Above, Omni-sister has a cookie, hot from the oven.   Omni-sis and me, rolling (in) the […]

Vegan Cupcakes Take Over My Christmas

Pin It!

As fun as cookie-baking can be, I was pretty tired of it by the time the bazillionth batch of cookies came out of the oven. So I decided to redirect my energy into cupcake-making (and decorating) for a completely different style of fun. I brought the finished products to a party and watched as they […]
