Cooler Weather Means It’s Tea Time!

I always say this, but it doesn’t make it any less true: time flies. I just sent my eldest off to her first day of 2nd grade and my littlest is already 5 weeks old – where does the time go!? Even though I’m sad that my littles are growing up so fast, one thing that always comes with the Autumn season is cooler weather, and with the cooler weather I can finally get back to my tea time. I generally don’t let the warm weather deter me from a nice cup of tea, but since I was pregnant for the majority of the summer I...

Fresh From the Garden

Fresh From the Garden

This summer is passing by so quickly, I’ve hardly had time to stop and smell the roses – or in my case – the dill! I am a flower killer, sad to say, but it’s something I’ve come to terms with. Even with my uncanny ability to kill anything that has a beautiful flower on it, I have somehow gained the knowledge and luck to be able to grow edibles magnificently. Which, if you ask me, is much more practical anyway. I digress… This year I tried some new things in my vegetable garden and I’ve  had a lot of...

Berry-Herb Smoothie

Berry-Herb Smoothie

Happy early 4th of July (and a late Canada Day)! I know not all of us get a long weekend, but since most of us do, I thought it would be a good time to post this recipe I’ve been hoarding all to myself for a while. Normally I like to enjoy an ice-cold cocktail or beer while I relax over the long holiday weekend, but since the little one hasn’t emerged yet (I suppose it does still technically have a few weeks left to marinate, technically), I have to find other , non-alcoholic ways to cool down this weekend. This berry-herb...

Vegan for Fit Review

Hi everyone! I hope your summer is going swimmingly so far! We’ve had lots of rain and flooding here, so it hasn’t been all rainbows and kittens, but overall it’s been an excellent summer break so far. We went to Door County again this year, though we had to move it up due to this little making its arrival soon. It was a little cooler than usual, but we still had a great time and avoided bad weather. Right when we returned, I had to jet off to Vegas for work, which is much less glamorous than it seems. Anyway, my point to...

Vegan Eats World Cookbook Review

Side Note: I realize that most of my content lately has been cookbook reviews, but that’s a direct reflection of how I’ve been cooking lately, so it’s not bothering me in the least. If you enjoy my original recipe posts more, do not worry your precious head, I’ll be back full steam soon! On to the main show for today! Recently I was given the opportunity to review Terry Hope Romero’s newest cookbook, Vegan Eats World. Now, I’m going to get off-track a bit and brag at the same time: when I was at Vida Vegan...

Potato and Black Bean Burgers

While I was on hiatus, one of the things I enjoyed the most was not having to create new recipes. As much as I love creating in the kitchen, constantly feeling like I had to come up with something new every week – not just something new, but something good – was a bit stressful with everything else I had going on at the time. However, what I did enjoy about my time away was cooking out of my out of control collection of vegan cookbooks. I plan on posting a round up soon, but for now I’ll just say that I cooked out of at...

Vegan Unite Marketplace Launch

Hey ya’ll! Just wanted to pop in quick to tell you about an awesome website that’s officially launching today. Vegan Unite is an online marketplace for vegan and cruelty-free items that go well beyond food. This marketplace is similar to Etsy, but it is solely for vegan products. I really love the products available so far on the site, and it’s easy to navigate to specific items you may be looking for (and maybe ones you didn’t even know you were looking for!). They are continuously adding new products, so I encourage...

Cocktail Time: Cucumber Blackberry Tonic

Cocktail Time: Cucumber Blackberry Tonic

Hey kids! The sun is out and the weather is warming up (well, I assume it is for most people – just not here), and you know what that means – it’s cocktail time! Even though I can’t participate in a true cocktail time this summer, I love mixing up drinks and new concoctions for the husband. Plus, most of the cocktails I make are mocktail friendly, so I can at least enjoy the ambiance that comes with cocktail time. This cocktail was inspired by a project that my friends at RedEnvelope have going on right now called...

Mayim’s Vegan Table Cookbook Review

Hello my lovelies! I am coming out of my self-imposed retirement this week (and perhaps for good), to bring a review of one of my favorite new vegan cookbooks: Mayim’s Vegan Table. I also have some other fun stuff in store for the coming weeks, so stay tuned! Anyway, back to the whole point of this point – the review! This book was pretty hotly anticipated in the vegan world, and with good reason: it’s a great book for transitioning to veganism or just a more plant-based diet overall. Mayim is incredibly approachable, both...
