Labor Day Leftovers

I despise waste. So guess what, I’m still eating Labor Day leftovers! Personally, I don’t mind leftovers especially in dishes that get better as the flavors continue to marinate and marry. Plus, it’s great to have a night off and not have to fix dinner. Sounds like a win win to me! So as we near…

Treasure

A WordPress Writing 101 Assignment I approach many things in my life like a student. Studying a subject and then applying that knowledge to real life circumstances. My blog is no different. Not only do I want to share my vegan sweets, eats, and lifestyle with you but I want to do it well. So I’m…

Starting My Day Off Right

Happy Labor Day! There is no telling what I’ll be eating later but I’m pretty sure it won’t be as healthy as my breakfast smoothie. I generally have a smoothie Monday through Friday. It makes me feel good to know I’m starting my day the natural way with some fruit and vegetables. Plus, honestly I feel…

My Top 3 Reasons For Joining the Blogosphere!

Why I Took the Dive Reason Number 3: Before selfies and camera phones, I was the self-appointed picture taker. As far back as junior high school, I would borrow my mom’s camera to document life’s moments. In fact that’s why I selected the Spun theme. The home page emphasizes the pictures. Reason Number 2. I love entertaining. Planning,…

Kitchen Therapy 

I’ve always enjoyed preparing a good home cooked meal for my family but I couldn’t say the same for baking until I went vegan. Initially my interest in vegan baking was bore purely from a desire to have an occasional sweet treat. What I discovered was something I found relaxing. After a long day of…

I Had Them at DESSERT!

When I started this journey to veganism my husband and children were shocked and concerned to put it lightly. Shocked because we always embarked on nutritional changes after discussion as a family and I’d made this decision in isolation. Concerned because I couldn’t tell them at the time how far I’d go.  Vegetarian?  Vegan?  Raw…
