Vegan Apple Pie Recipe

I grew up in a town that's known as Apple Hill. It's where all the people from the valley go to pick apples in the fall and Christmas trees in the winter. It's a tourist town. I can't count the number of times I heard people describing Apple Hill as adorable, rustic or earthy. I guess, it's all of those things & more. Every town has its own history & heartache. There is something...

Vegan Cinnamon Rolls Recipe

I love the train, maybe it's because I grew up in a town with 1,000 people or the manifestation of my childhood obsession with Thomas the Train. Last night, we took the train downtown to see a movie. The weather was, in some strange way, all kinds of movie beautiful. After moving to the east coast, I realize that a lot of my childhood movies have traditional New England architecture. There...

Couples Yoga

Pneumonia. The final diagnosis for Kevin's bizarre sickness. We are both stubborn about going to the doctor, so it was one of those tea and positive thinking isn't going to help any more kind of moments. This weekend, he finally started to feel better and we slowly put the house back together from a week of running around like mad. We had two Thanksgiving dinners this weekend & we are...

Spiced Apple Walnut Muffins + Vegan Cookbook Giveaway

Kevin is a cookie lover and I guess I am too. This week, I put a big glass jar next to the door and I think it tempts the both of us to grab a cookie every morning on our way out. I think we all need something sweet to put in our pocket as we head out the door in the morning, whether that's a letter from a loved one, a kiss or a chocolate chip cookie. Something familiar to greet the day,...

Coconut & Vanilla Vegan Birthday Cake

Step outside, breath. Run hard enough to feel your legs bow. Pour a tall cup of tea, simmer. My great granddad passed away a few weeks ago in his nineties. A long and beautiful life. I wasn't able to make it home for the funeral, but that is the hazard of living 3,000 miles away from your family. It's strange, when people pass away it's as though all your memories of them come flooding back...

Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies & Coconut Cream

Time feels like it is moving quicker than ever. This weekend, I had a big work project and didn't get to my usual rest, relaxation, cooking & friend time. I launched straight into this week with half of a menu plan and my birthday fast approaching. I am turning 25 tomorrow - woo! I remember during my childhood wondering what it would like to be 20, 21, 24, 25 etc. I wish I would have written...
