After transitioning to a plant based diet, and establishing a regular rotation of plant-tastic recipes, I’ve never really “missed meat.” But, I’ll be honest, I have missed specific tastes and textures. One of those top textures is that of a super stuffed, super fantastic, super delicious […]
Recently, a few friends of ours went camping at a local state park & invited us to drum with them in a small sunset drum circle they were having by a beautiful lake. We were delighted to join-in & jam but we were even more […]
When I was growing up, I wouldn’t have touched a Black Bean with a 6 foot pole (nevermind with a 6 inch fork).
For some strange reason, I was under the impression that Beans were to be banished to the wastebasket.
(I’d pick around every. single. one.)
Bean there, but never going back to that!
I don’t know about you, but when I hear the word “cookie” I automatically think, “Yes please!” You say the words “Breakfast Cookie” and I’m even more excited! If calling it a “Breakfast Cookie” gives me the excuse to eat it before 8am, I’m all in! […]
After Quinn was born sleeping, not only was my heart broken, but my arms were left literally aching. Aching for a six pound, three ounce, little lady who was lost from our (physical) lives, but not our minds. Not merely in our memories were there […]
While I was taking my premeditated “morning meditative walk” with my son and my rescue pitbull, Penny, today, we stumbled-upon two off-leash, un-tagged dogs roaming around our neighborhood.
This got me thinking about being in the “right place at the right time.”
If I hadn’t decided on a whim to “do our workaday walk backwards” by turning right (as opposed to our likely left) while leaving the driveway, I wouldn’t have been the one who stumbled upon these freed fidos.
Who knows what could have or would have happened to these doggies without my immediate intervention?

You had me at “Pico-de-Gallo.” 😉 One of my absolute favorite foods is Pico de Gallo! When I was in college, there was this small, hole-in-the-wall Burrito place that was close to campus that made fresh, in-house, Pico de Gallo that was out of this […]
I don’t know about you, but for me, the time after I wake-up but before my son wakes up is a terrific time to get to a few toddler-free tasks. On an ordinary day, with him being one, I have anywhere between 30 minutes (semi-regular) to an hour and a half (rare & golden) before he wakes-up.
That’s the perfect amount of time to throw together a Crock-Pot meal!
(Or, let’s be honest, for me to finish-up playing around on Facebook. Then, just as I realize exactly how long I’ve been scrolling, he will wake-up and I wind-up wearing him in my ergo while I cook.) 😉
These Veggie Fajitas are one of my personal favorite set & forget meals!
You know how every superhero has their “secret weapon” or their “super power” that they use to beat the bad guy or to swoop-in and save the day? Well, one of my secret weapons, that adds a supercharged, savory flavor to any recipe that it’s added […]
