Disneyland Vegan Road Trip Snacks

Summer is upon us! And you know what that means–the season of road trips is officially here. I have a very complicated relationship with road trips.

THE BEST OATMEAL COOKIES I HAVE EVER MADE

Sundays are my zen days. I love waking up early for mass, and taking the time to indulge in a nice brunch with friends, or even just my parents.

How is Dennis? I’m so glad you all asked: I just got him a new toy and this morning, once my alarm went off and I pressed snooze, all I heard was a series of meows telling me to get up. When I tried to fall back asleep, they got louder. I opened my eyes…

Pancake Tuesday

I absolutely love Easter. I love the pastel colors. I love the warm spring weather. I love the blooming flowers and that everything becomes branded with cute baby animals. But what I love most about Easter is the anticipation surrounding it, well at least if you’re Catholic. Lent is the time between Ash Wednesday and…

This year my father’s birthday just…

It’s taken me so much energy to get through this post because I didn’t know that I didn’t like miso until I made this. Anyways – this miso bowl was the next thing on my list! The recipient called for soba noodles (buckwheat) but I couldn’t find them ANYWHERE. So I just ended up using…
