Kale and Mixed Bean Soup


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

Weekend Recap!


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

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



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



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


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
