Vegan Cupcakes

A lot of the time, when I cook vegan, I simply substitute a vegan alternative for an animal product in a recipe. There are so many substitutes out there. I’ll include a list of my favorites in another post. Of course, there are also “vegan” recipes out there – yes, really – and my mom […] Read more…

But, after being a vegetarian for most of my life (I’ll admit to taking a few years off to cook meaty meals for my daughters and my husband, Pops), I’ve chosen to go Vegan.

Stanford

Pop’s and I go for walks everyday. We love walking and we’re so lucky, we live in an amazing town for walking.

Rascals

Here they are….Bubba (my baby bulldog) and Lucy…the rascals. Tusslers really. They have absolutely no idea that my life doesn’t revolve around them. They look cute and innocent, but don’t let them fool you. They’re both incredibly spoiled. Read more…

Hi There!!

I’m Lita and I’m very new to this whole blogging thing. I anticipate the look of this site is going to change often – especially with all the lovely themes out there to choose from. My goal will be to create my very own…we’ll see how that goes. But I didn’t want to delay in […] Read more…
