Vegan Chocolate Bites

Sometimes I come across a recipe that’s very vegany and it tastes like rocks and sticks and dirt. Usually, I’ll eat it anyway because I know it’s good for me and really, vegan kitchen fails can be pretty pricey! This one though, it’s not at all like rocks or sticks or dirt! It’s actually sweet… Continue reading Vegan Chocolate Bites

Farmer’s Market Haul (with meal ideas)!

Last summer, I fell madly in love with the Torrance Farmer’s Market. I love it because it’s big so there is a lot of selection, but not so big that you can’t get to know the vendors. I looooove that it’s a year-round market (since you know, 2 weeks of rain is ‘winter’ down here)… Continue reading Farmer’s Market Haul (with meal ideas)!

Vegan ‘Goldfish’ Crackers (Thank you Mama Pea)

Ok so, as you are all painfully aware by now, I’m the biggest fan girl there ever was for Peas and Thank You and for Mama Pea’s cookbook. I will have to tally it up but I think I have made almost all of the recipes now. However, since Mama Pea (aka Sarah Matheny), is… Continue reading Vegan ‘Goldfish’ Crackers (Thank you Mama Pea)

Menu Monday with Some Peas and Thank You Love!

Today, I’m linking up with Organizing Junkie Sometimes I fear that if I post any more about my unending love for Mama Pea or her cookbook, she will think I am officially insane. Or like, get a restraining order or something. But I’m not crazy obsessed, I’m just smitten by a book filled with vegan… Continue reading Menu Monday with Some Peas and Thank You Love!

‘Cream Cheese’ Filled Strawberries

Generally, a bowl of strawberries doesn’t need any dressing up around here. All of the kids will devour a bowl without any sugar on them, without them being dipped in chocolate (though that never hurts, especially if it’s dark chocolate). Sometimes, though, I feel like a little something and these little somethings are just the… Continue reading ‘Cream Cheese’ Filled Strawberries

Peas & Thank You Beg Worthy Banana Bread (& Menu Monday)

As I sit here, listening to The Andrew Sisters (yes, really) and planning out the menu this week, I’m already thinking of the banana bread I’m going to make this afternoon. The rant about it is after this week’s menu plan and no, I didn’t post the recipe. I swear the book is worth the… Continue reading Peas & Thank You Beg Worthy Banana Bread (& Menu Monday)

Searching for the Perfect Picnic Basket

Today I’m linking up with Dandelion House, Happy Go Lucky Blog, and Chubby Cheeks Thinks. I have had a love for all things vintage and slightly chipped and worn and almost matching for as long as I can remember. I used to beg my department store-loving mother to take me downtown to Toronto’s Kensington Market… Continue reading Searching for the Perfect Picnic Basket

Peas & Thank You’s Whole Wheat Ginger Pear Waffles

I know I have been singing serious praises for this cookbook all year but it really is everything I’m hyping it up to be and no one is even asking me to do it! Another winner from this book, this time a breakfast treat. Even one of me wee ones that isn’t really into pears… Continue reading Peas & Thank You’s Whole Wheat Ginger Pear Waffles
