Vegan Grilled Cheese

Here is a simple how-to for a not so healthy sandwich. Using Daiya is healthier than using actual cheese, but when it comes to overall nutrition, there isn’t a lot going for it. If you like the taste of Daiya cheeses, this sandwich is an amazingly delicious treat! It took a while for the taste of…

Lazy Homemade Marinara

Why buy a jar of marina when you can make your own fresh, delicious, organic (if you want), and personalized-to-your-own-palate marinara sauce for much cheaper? Alright, so this recipe isn’t exactly fresh when it comes to the tomatoes, that’s why I’m calling it “Lazy” Homemade Marinara. You can use fresh tomatoes. I normally do. But this…

Homemade Chocolate Milk

I’m basing this recipe on one invented by Heather Elliott and posted on her blog. I’ve been buying Silk Chocolate Almond Milk lately. I was out today, and the idea of chocolate milk was all too appetizing for me to pass up. So I decided to make a vegan version of Heather’s and share it…

A Labor and Delivery Story (#2)

My second child was born two weeks and two days late. Since my first was 2 1/2 weeks late, I wasn’t worried when we got to two weeks after my due date. I was positive baby two would be born earlier than baby one, and she was. Labor, delivery, and post L&D was a completely different experience…

Wanting ALL the Food

You know you are getting over the “morning sickness” phase of your pregnancy when you spend all day thinking about food and being vaguely hungry. Thanks to this blog, I’ve started finding other vegan bloggers. One that I now follow mentioned being on www.findingvegan.com which I of course had to check out. Oh man! the pictures…

A Labor and Delivery Story (#1)

My first child was born two and a half weeks late. That’s right, two and a half weeks. My due date was June 5th, and on June 21st we went to the hospital to induce. Baby boy ended up being born on the June 22nd. I had wanted a completely natural birth (in a birthing center)…

11 weeks, a few notes

Throwing up apples is the worst. Throwing up peanut butter and syrup (waffles) isn’t so bad. This week I officially found out my due date! It is July 17. It is my best friend’s birthday, which is AWESOME. My first child was due on my birthday but was born two and half weeks later. Child two…

Vegan Broccoli Chee Soup

This is one of my favorite soup recipes. One of the great things about it is that I have yet to ever mess it up. You can alter it quite a bit and it is still delicious. It rests squarely in the ‘quick and easy’ category for us, but you might find it complicated if…
