Kale and Mixed Bean Soup

dsc_13632

It's not very often I find a vegetable or fruit I don't like.  I'm lucky, the list is short.  Blueberries are on the list, and strawberries only came off the list a couple of years ago.  It's weird, I know.  Kale was on the list too.  I just couldn't Continue Reading

Coffee and Raw Sugar Scrub

So, it's practically May, which means it's almost summer, which means these cozy sweaters, leggings, and jeans I have been sporting for MONTHS are going to have to go into hiding soon.  I'm OK with that, actually I am more than OK.  I am a LEO, it's Continue Reading

Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies

Oh, Hello cookies I love you.  I love chocolate and peanut butter together.  Together in cookies, brownies, pie, shakes...oh  man.  Recess.  I need to stop the list.  I don't think anyone would argue with me on these two babies being one of the best Continue Reading

Snaps from this past week/weekend are, well, non-existent.  I could think of several reasons, but it's mainly just because I wasn't in the mood to be snapping.  And you can't force it, ya know!  The week seemed to speed by and the weekend was filled Continue Reading

Shrimp in my salad?  Yep.  But aren't you vegan.  Ummmm yes. Well most of the time.  About 95% of my diet is vegan.  However, occasionally I do eat fish.  I try to make sure it is high quality.  I guess I am more of a Pescatarian? I became vegan to Continue Reading

Zucchini Patties

I LOVE zucchini!  It's not joke.  L-O-V-E.  If you have ever lived with me or just been around me long enough, you could have witnessed me eating zucchini maybe twice a day for weeks straight.  I use to be pretty basic with it though.  Cut into small Continue Reading

Snickerdoodles

Sometimes my brain just does not feel like being creative.  Yesterday was one of those times.  After watching sunset with a glass of wine and some appetizers at the Rusty Pelican, Erik and me were craving some sweets, but I just couldn't get fancy. Continue Reading

Snaps!

There has been a long lapse in posts, but there's a very good reason!!  I am the clumsiest person ever!  No joke, Erik even tells people that, and he stresses the ever.  I had a bad fall last weekend while visiting my brother and old friends in San Continue Reading

Simple Vegan Black Bean & Corn Chili

dsc_12821

I'm not a huge fan of college basketball.  And by not a huge fan I mean I really could not care less.  The only thing I liked about the March Madness crapola was the socializing biz.  I liked having another excuse to get drinks, food, and explore new Continue Reading
