This Friday marks the first round-up of the autumn season! If you've seen my posts from the last few weeks, you may know that I'm... not necessarily thrilled about that. However, I will reserve my fall blues for the post-Halloween season. I received a little festive pick-me-up earlier this week with the delivery of my… Continue reading Cannabis News and More: News Round-up for September 21, 2019 – September 26, 2019
Sometimes you develop a recipe idea from old ingredients you forgot were in the pantry. Last year, towards the end of winter, I found bags of Dandies Pumpkin Vegan Marshmallows in the clearance bin. Never one to turn down a sale, I bought several, gave a couple away, and promptly forgot about it until I… Continue reading Primetime Snack: Cannabis-Infused (or Not!) Vegan Popcorn Balls
Another week, another round-up. It's still before midnight on Sunday here in Seattle, so better late than never! This is my curated research on all the cannabis policy, health and wellness, fitness trend, animal rights, and vegan product news from the past week. I read the alerts and the newsletters so that you don't have… Continue reading Cannabis & More: News Round-Up for the Week of August 25, 2019 to August 31, 2019

This was before MySpace even, back when "blogs" were mostly just LiveJournal accounts on which you would divulge serious drama about… Continue reading Vegan MoFo Week 3: Spanakopita Sandwiches!
If there's any one food item that anyone expects me to be an expert in, it is most certainly the moist, white block of congealed soy protein known as tofu. Probably most people hear me say "vegan" and assume that this ubiquitous source of vegetarian protein is most of what I eat anyway.

Pho is my friend. No, pho is my family. Unfortunately not in heritage because as far as I know there is no Vietnamese in my blood. However, it has seen me at my worst, it has been there to celebrate my blessings, and I have introduced it to the people that I care about the… Continue reading my favorite munchies: vegan zoodle pho
