Chocolate Covered Clementines

I am pretty excited Valentine’s Day is next week.  I will take any excuse to eat chocolate. I know chocolate covered strawberries are the classic at this time of the year, but these are better.  Clementines are a lot less expensive right now, they are fresh and super sweet and in season, and when you

Vegan Hot Chocolate Mix

Vegan Hot Chocolate Mix

What I love maybe the most about this time of the year is snuggling up with hot beverages.  Hot tea, the occasional cup of coffee, and hot chocolate.  Oh hot chocolate.  Is there a more perfect drink? And I have been all about Christmas movies (it feels like my TV stays on ABC Family the

Vegan Fruit Cake

Sometimes I sneak off to my happy place.  Last week was one of those times. I swear I don’t go that often, and since I was just there in October it probably seems like I go a lot.  I was just the luckiest this year because hubby had a conference a couple weeks before our

Crispy and Chewy Coconut Cookies

Thanksgiving is wonderful of course, I mean a holiday that is mostly revolving around food is something I can get behind.  But Christmas?  Its all about the cookies.  And really, where there are cookies there are smiles, so how can other holidays compete?

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies (Gluten Free, Vegan Option)

Halloween is over, but I am not over the whole pumpkin thing yet.   Can we make a pact to eat as much pumpkin related foods until Thanksgiving?  By that time I assume we will be so sick of it that we can give them up cold turkey until next year. Speaking of Halloween, I

I love holidays.  I love collecting fun little decorations that I get to haul out once a year and enjoy for a few months.  I almost always forget what I bought the previous year, and it’s like discovering things I love all over again.  It’s one of the reasons I love holidays so much. And,

Immunity Boost Smoothie

With fall in the air and kids going back to school, it’s starting to be the season for the sniffles.  And while being about being able to call out from work is one of life’s many pleasures, I prefer to save it for the times when I feel like playing hooky (which is good for

Gluten Free Crepes

Have you ever figured out a life hack that made you feel like an evil genius?  And then you said it out loud and you realized it’s actually maybe not as cool as you thought it was? That happened to me twice this week.  First, I started using my mouse pad (the rubber side) as
