Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies-1-6

Congratulations to Katie C. the winner of the Uncommon Goods Giveaway! I know you will enjoy the gifts as much as I did! Hi friends. It has been way too long. I am back from vacation in San Diego and totally behind schedule. I planned on blogging while I was there but I took my lap top which I don't usually blog from and it was so slow that I couldn't handle wasting precious vacation time trying to post. I didn't take many real photos but if you are on instagram you can see a few of the ones I did take while in San Diego (click on the IG button up top). We hit up Disneyland, California … [Read more...]

Carrot Muffins-1

This week I am excluding all animal products, including meats, diary, eggs, honey (although my husband argued that this is from an insect and shouldn't count) and any grains made with these ingredients. Since I am only doing this for a week, it hasn't been bad at all. I … [Read more...]

Vegan Pancakes & Meal Planning Monday!


Whether you are vegan, cooking for friends and family who are vegan or just run out of eggs and cow's milk, this is a fantastic pancake recipe. A friend posted it on her family blog a long time ago and I filed it in the back of my brain because I love pancakes and love trying out new recipes. Then when another friend recently switched to a vegan diet in efforts to help alleviate some medical issues she is having, it made me think of this recipe. I had to google vegan pancake recipes until I found the one I thought it was the suggested recipe.  I tried it and loved it. You can hardly tell the … [Read more...]
