I’ve been going through some personal things lately and have naturally had ups and downs or as they say, peaks and valleys. While I currently sit in a valley I looked over at my overripe bananas on the counter….again! For the past few months I keep buying bananas, not eating them, freezing them, then throwing… Continue reading When life gives you brown bananas.
My bestie had one wish for her 40th….she wanted all her friends to go away together for a weekend, so that we did. We found a house in the Poconos that slept 20 people and 20 people headed up for a weekend celebrating Heather. As you could imagine there was a lot of planning that… Continue reading Two vegans and 18 carnivores walk into a house….
Dinner parties with friends are always fun but since going vegan I feel that I have to take some precautionary steps to prepare for a fun and worry free night. I try very hard not to impose my beliefs or choices onto other people, so when I am a guest I have to just prepare. There is… Continue reading A Dinner Party Delight

I LOVE getting people to try yummy healthy, vegan food and watching them enjoy it with surprise. It’s been a good week already and it’s only Wednesday.

It was a definite… Continue reading Till next year NOLA

One of my favorite things about living cruelty free is how I know people are always thinking of me. This sounds narcissistic so let me explain: almost every day I get a post, email, text, or call from someone I either talk to all the time or someone I haven’t spoke to in months.

When I first decided to be vegan I read something that say, “if you can be vegan expect for one thing then be vegan except for that one thing.” My one thing? PIZZA! I LOVE pizza and everything about it. Even bad pizza, I like. So I used to have a slice every month. Then… Continue reading Oh, how I love pizza!
Nothing like starting a day with a 2 week old baby goat in the Catskills and ending in NYC for the night. We were lucky to have a visit from Kathy Stevens, founder of Catskill Animal Sanctuary, during our delicious breakfast at the Homestead. We had tofu scramble, coconut milk pancakes, and delicious banana bread.… Continue reading Baby goats, blow outs and bars
