Vegan Salted Chocolate Caramel Pecan Turtles

I dove into a whole pile of these when we got home from Pia’s School Christmas Pagent tonight. It was that kind of a night. Like the patent was adorable and sweet!!! But the shlepping the kids through rush hour traffic and walking 4 blocks in the mud and rain and listening to my kids […]

Christmas Quinoa Salad with Oranges, Pomegranates, Bacon and Pistachios

Hi guys! Hope you had a nice weekend. Ours was a little hectic (but what’s new!?) We had another charity dinner party at our house on Friday night. It was a really fun group, and I really enjoyed having everyone. I was telling Pete that I actually like to do these kind of dinners (think […]

Vegan Peppermint Patties

Happy Friday!! I’m home, happy and rested from my little jaunt to Utah. Moms will understand this: you leave for a few days and miss your kids the whole time and feel guilty for not being with them, and then within 2 minutes of getting home everything is right back to how it was before […]

Lime Meltaways (Gluten Free and Vegan)

So let me set the scene. Imagine a crazy, haggard lady that may or may not have red hair and quite a few freckles and the worst dark circles ever right now with a ragged top knot bun, old saggy stretched out yoga pants and copious amounts of gluten free flour and beet sugar and […]

Crispy Salmon with Winter Fruit Salsa

Hi guys!! I hope you had a wonderful weekend? Ours pretty much completely revolved around my girls musical theatre performances of “Cinderella.” They have been part of a program called “Broadway Bound” and they have been practicing with their cast of 5-8 year olds (!!) since September.

The Best Greek Chicken and Potatoes


Stuff is funny around here. The elf Toto (on the shelf) finally showed his face in an amazon express box after his predecessor somehow disappeared in our house work this last year. But seems like someone (ahem, ME) was a little rusty in moving that little bugger around each night. I get up really early […]

Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Truffles

True admission. I have never had the famous Christmas Cookie called a “Buck Eye.” Have you? I wonder if they are a regional cookie, as I had never even heard of it until a few years ago and the miracle of pinterest and blogger cookie round ups. But, there was nothing upsetting to me obviously. […]
