How Not To Die Cookbook Review

I never liked buying cookbooks… I felt like they were more of a decoration than actually useful. Most cookbooks have some weird ingredient that’s hard to find or way too many steps to follow in order to make one simple dish. So, I want to […]



The Ohio cabin fever has really set in and now I’m reminiscing on summer! My husband and I like to go on road trips as much as possible. We like to spend our money on experiences (and vegan food) instead of things!

So last summer, we went on our biggest road trip yet, over 1,000 miles from Ohio to Acadia National Park in Maine. It was such a fun time and I want to tell you all about our vegan stops in Upstate New York on the way to Maine and on the way back home. Stay tuned for deliciousness and make sure to save these places on your Google Maps for the next time you’re passing through!

“Why I Quit Being Vegan” and “Why I’m No Longer Vegan” videos are coming out left and right, so let’s counteract this negative attention to the vegan “movement” with “Why I’m STILL Vegan” videos. So today, I’m going to talk about why I’m STILL vegan. […]



 Pancakes are my FAVORITE breakfast food! What’s your favorite? I’m usually making them on the weekends and smothering them with MY version of “liquid gold”, 100% REAL maple syrup. They’re easy to make, delicious, and pretty nutritious if you use the simple ingredients in this easy vegan […]
