The weather's being weird again

Pin It!

Yesterday was nice and warm– I went for a long run outside, and a few friends and I even ate lunch in the sun. Not today, though! It’s pouring rain, and more snow is predicted. *Sigh* I wish the weather would make up its mind! Oh well, at least the cold weather gives me a […]

Wacky Weather/ Comforting Cooking

Pin It!

It’s official: Mother Nature has lost her mind. Yesterday it was 70 degrees here in Dallas, bright and sunny, and I was wearing shorts. Today? Why, today it is 39 degrees and snowing (just a few flakes, but still…). Yup, Mother Nature’s really lost it this time, the poor dear. When I got out of class […]

Loaf-ing Around

Pin It!

I enjoyed a lovely dinner the other night, thanks to Lindsay, the Happy Herbivore. Her mock meatloaf recipe has been on my “to-try” list for a long time, and I am so glad I finally got around to making it. The loaf firmed up perfectly, it was easy to make, and the taste was superb. […]

Sometimes you feel like a nut

Pin It!

I feel super-silly posting this recipe, because it is so easy… but it’s too good not to share. Roasted Pecans Take a bag of pecans (unsalted), spread ’em on baking sheet, and roast them in the oven. Not only will roasting them bring out a rich flavor, it will also make your kitchen smell delicious. […]

Sundae on a Tuesday

Pin It!

Yesterday, I went for an especially enjoyable run– the weather was warm and sunny, with a cool breeze. After the run, though, I was hot and hungry… now, what could I eat that would cool me off AND replenish my fuel storage?????? Vegan ice cream Sundae to the rescue! Now, since I was double-tagged,  I’d […]

Funny (and sometimes scary) searches that lead people to my blog

The good, the bad, and the downright weird (My comments are in parenthesis and italics) Things that should NEVER go together: 1. chocolate covered broccoli (a sure-fire way to ruin two great foods) 2. chocolate covered carrots 3. chocolate covered dog bone (sounds like a bad idea to me) 4. chocolate covered mushrooms (someone really […]

Curious about 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 […]

Little Vegan Quiche Dip

Pin It!

A few posts back on her blog, my friend, Vegmomma, made a quiche so gorgeous that it had me wishing I could fly to Canada just to get a piece. But since I don’t want to become “Crazy Stalker Blogger” I opted to stay put and make my own quiche instead. There was only one […]

The Ugliest Food You'll Ever Love

Pin It!

I’m in love… with my food processor. We’re together almost every day, having an exhilarating time by choosing random ingredients, hitting the switch, and seeing (and eating!) the results. But our relationship wasn’t always this good… When I first met Mr. FP, I didn’t like him at all! He was messy, he was scary, he […]
