Edamame and Broccoli Salad (vegan)

I had a lovely moment of nostalgia the other day when something reminded me of the job I had in college at a pastry shop.  I started out as a fruit tarter (I think that might have seriously been my job title too, sometimes I wonder when my life when from pretty unusual to pretty

Roasted Tomato Basil Oatmeal (vegan savory oatmeal)

I used to be the kind of person who could have something sweet for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.  There were often jokes made about how eating sweet things are what made me so sweet.  Ok, ok, sometimes I still make super terrible hilarious jokes like that.  Like sometimes I sit on an exercise ball at

Vegan Brussels Sprout and Lentil Salad

I love mason jars.  A lot.  One could say I collect them, but I think a more accurate description would be that I kind of hoard them.  I often can’t resist buying them if I see them at the store.  We have a lot of them, but we also use them all the time, so

I love vegetables.  I could write sonnets about them.  If I had any talent for sonnet writing.  Food in general just gets me excited.  I am one of those people who would gladly sit in a corner at a party and just talk to someone about food for hours.  Even if they are just telling

Yesterday two things happened.  I wore long sleeves, and I put in the Gilmore Girls DVDs. I realize this probably means nothing you you.  To me, this means Fall is coming. I know I get enthusiastic about fall a little early.  Like, as soon as September hits I start suggesting we go apple picking, eat

Don’t. Panic.  It’s September.  Which is kind of scary.  Because.. um, didn’t summer just get here?  Am I turning into a stereotypical adult who thinks time flies too fast?  I am going to be honest with you here.  I am totally fine with being a sterotype.  I think that when I do yoga, slather on

May I nerd out for a minute? I love the Harry Potter books.  In my opinion they are some the best books ever written.  I caught up on the series right before the last book came out.  So naturally, when the book came out, I not only had to go buy it immediately upon release,
