Randomness 2015 – Series #1

Um, so you may have noticed there’s not a lot of posting going on here at the blog this year. I assure you though, there is more posting happening on other social media platforms and hope you will join me on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest and Google+. I’m finding that finding the time to post has […] Read more…

So, are you getting ready to create your holiday cards?! Or are you one of those people that have had them done and addressed for weeks now?? Hint…I’m not one of those early bird people. I’m still browsing through potential card photos to decide which one(s) I want to use. I feel like I have […] Read more…

Organix South – Theraneem Product Review

A little while back, I was contacted by the good people of Organix South asking if I’d like to try and review a couple of their products. I LOVE this perk in the blogging world and honestly love to share products I’ve tried and love – especially if they can be a benefit to any […] Read more…

Homestyle Breakfast

Some days, we really keep eating simple around our house…especially breakfast. Having tasty items available from the garden helps a lot, too. One of Pop’s (my hubby) favorite breakfasts are what he calls “Homestyle Breakfasts”. This basically means something hot, fresh, quick and tasty. For this breakfast, I simply added some coconut oil to a […] Read more…

Brain Food Bar

Today, my Conscious Box came!! Do you subscribe to this program? I’m subscribed to the “vegan” version and I’m always so happy when it comes and I can sample new vegan snacks and products to see what’s out there. Most of the items that come each month are items I have NOT tried – which […] Read more…

Lemon Rice

Look at this delicious – and easy to prepare – rice dish I recently found at Costco! It’s made my Sukhi’s Gourmet Indian Foods, is vegan, organic and, most importantly, is DELICIOUS!! Most evenings, by the time I get home from work and working out, all I want are easy dishes to prepare for dinner. […] Read more…

Vegan Lasagna (with Tofu)

Happy Meatless Monday! Happy Vegan MoFo 2013! Just happy HAPPY! Today I want to share the vegan lasagna recipe (well, kinda a recipe) that I made last weekend. When I say “kinda” a recipe it’s because most of the time I start with a recipe, but almost always I end up improvising due to a […] Read more…

Vegan Snack ATTACK

Yep, vegans love to snack too!! One of my FAVORITE nut snacks is Mrs. May’s Almond Crunch!! So stinkin’ tasty!!! I love having a couple pieces – especially while sitting at my desk in the afternoons. They’re so satisfying and yummy! Mrs. May’s makes a ton of other tasty, vegan snacks too – check out […] Read more…

Work Day Lunch Share 1

In following with my Vegan MoFo 2013 vegan shares…here’s my first office lunch this month. All the standards here – variants are usually what I add to the dish. Today though, I kept it super simple. Some salad and some cubed tofu a light dressing and….   a little watermelon – YUM! Sometimes I top […] Read more…

Garden Fresh – A Vegan Restaurant

This past weekend (after another fun bike ride), Pops and I tried a “new” (to us) vegan restaurant in Mountain View, CA called Garden Fresh. What a delicious find….a wonderful vegan Chinese cuisine delight!! First, we began our meal with the Basil Moo Shu Rolls. These were served cold and were a perfect treat after […] Read more…

Happy Labor Day

Happy Labor Day everyone! Aaahh how nice to have an extra “weekend” day. Today we’re having the kids over later for dinner and I’m making a vegan lasagna (which I will share photos and details of later). I used to make lasagna a lot, but haven’t in a while and this time instead of hunting […] Read more…

Vegan MoFo 2013

This year I’ve decided to give-it-a-go and participate in Vegan MoFo. What does that mean? …well, for the next month I will post a TON about being vegan…food, recipes, products, etc. AND it’s not just me posting throughout the month…many, many other very cool vegan bloggers will be posting a TON too – and I […] Read more…

HOME

Last week Pops and I took a mini trip down to Malibu and the Central Coast of CA (more on those stops later), so finding out today’s word for Susannah Conway’s August Break 2013 is “HOME” seems so appropriate. Returning home means we’re back with our little sweet potato – BUBBA! love this little stinker!   Read more…

PLAY (ball?)

RED

Day 10 of Susannah Conway’s August Break 2013! focuses on such a happy color…RED! Summertime red can truly mean watermelon!!! YUM! I also found this “red” photo that I took while visiting a shop in Pescadero a few weeks ago. I really love the color red…maybe that’s why the cabinets in my kitchen are painted that color! […] Read more…

Taste

Day 9 of Susannah Conway’s August Break 2013 – word of the day – TASTE!   What could be yummier than the Summer cook-out tastes? My summer favorite…corn and black bean salad – with chopped peppers, tomatoes, red onions, a little olive oil and salt and pepper….yes, please!   Raw veggie plates – pretty much a […] Read more…

Diagonals

WOW today’s prompt from Susannah Conway’s August Break 2013 was a bit tough for me….Diagonal! hmmm…browsing through my pictures, this one above is what I came up with – a shot from Thailand, near the border into Myanmar – in the “Golden Triangle”. Kinda works, right? How about this one…notice the angle of the streets centerline: […] Read more…

Close-Up

Ready for Day 5 of Susannah Conway’s August Break? Today, our prompt is “Close-Up” and I just happen to have these photos of a little squirrel eating some snacks out on our back deck. He’s a hungry little guy – in need of a manicure!  He’s really enjoying that piece of tortilla…and, suprisingly, he’s not being bothered […] Read more…

Love

Here we are at Day 4 of Susannah Conway’s August Break 2013 and the word for the day is LOVE! AND who doesn’t know how much I LOVE this little French wonder boy?!?! I have so many goofy names for him it would be hard to fit them all in here…but the all-time favorite (and one […] Read more…

Circles

Here we are with Day 2 of  Susannah Conway’s August Break 2013! Today’s theme “Circles” fits perfectly with these photos I recently took of Pops in his Scout Patch jacket. How cute is he in this jacket his mom made for him when he was a young scout? She sewed all the patches on herself! He […] Read more…

August Break

Sooooooo…I’m sure you’ve noticed I’ve been a tad bit of a blog slacker lately. Trust me, this is not due to having nothing to say! It’s truly due to having no time to write!! Since it is Summertime, I guess this can be expected. (excuses, excuses, I know) To try to keep things hopping and […] Read more…

Happy New Year!!

I’m hoping that everyone’s new year as been a very HAPPY one so far!! I’m (kinda) ready to get back into the swing of things – I will definitely admit this little break I’ve taken has felt very good and rejuvenating. I’m thinking this blog might be headed in a whole bunch of new directions […] Read more…
