The 10 Lunchtime Staples You Should Have in Your Office Drawer

I cannot speak for everyone, but I can imagine a few of you are like me and have a drawer at work neatly labeled “personal” which we all know is really just code for “my food stay out, I mean it”. I learned early on in my corporate career that if I didn’t keep my desk stocked with a few key lunchtime staples, that I would end up splurging on full Snickers bars and sour cream and onion chips when 3pm rolled around…not a pretty picture. I have really realized that a well stoked “personal” drawer is key to staying…

Peanut Butter Cup S’mores Dip (Vegan) + A Giveaway **CLOSED**

A special congratulations to our winner Dandi D! 🙂 Is there anything more nostalgic than a delicious, classic, campfire s’mores. With summer in full swing this is typically one of my go-to desserts, unfortunately it wasn’t until recently that I discovered that marshmallows are made with gelatin…which is disgustingly made from boiled cow bones.

Happy 1 Year Blogiversary + A Yummy Vegan Chocolate Cake

 I was blown away this past weekend when I looked back through my old editorial calendar and realized that today was my one year blog anniversary (you can see my first highly mediocre post here). To be one hundred percent honest, I never thought that my blog would take the direction that it has and I must say that not only am I proud of the shape my blog has taken, I am also so excited for what is lying in wait on the horizon. If you told me a year ago that I was going to work with Aveda,…

My Take on Becoming “Vegan” + a Delicious Vegan Pizza Recipe

Recently I have gotten a few messages inquiring as to my dietary preferences in relation to meat and dairy. As seen here, here and here, I have been posting a lot of baking recipes that are either vegan or include vegan options and this has gotten some readers asking if I am a vegan. Here’s the thing, I never want to be the person who is hard to cook for or the one who doesn’t have anything to eat on Thanksgiving, I would never want to feel like my dietary preferences were an imposition on anyone. Also, not eating meat…
