Will The Real Garden Volunteers Please Stand Out? Back in my June 15 blog, I introduced you to my garden volunteers, who at that time had yet to reveal their identity to me. Well, fast forward to today, and I now have fun and exciting answers. [gallery link="none"...
It’s A Wrap

It’s A Wrap

With summer approaching, I love making quick and delicious wraps. They are so versatile, from what you put in them to what you choose to wrap them. They get in and out of the kitchen quickly, pack well for a hike or picnic, and are very nutritious and satisfying. So,...

Weeds! Aargh–no more! All Natural Weed Killer

When I bought my home just outside of Sedona, Arizona, I was thrilled that I had rocks instead of grass. Living in the desert, landscaping that required irrigation was of no interest to me, both environmentally and in terms of the time commitment. No grass! WoooHoo!...

Vegan T-Shirt Advocacy Series – #2

Two palettes for the price of one.  Yesterday was the front of my t-shirt; and today, let's take a look at the back. This t-shirt is definitely one of my favorites, if not my all-time fav. I love how it boldly states that I am VEGAN, and then uses widely-recognized...

Vegan T-Shirt Advocacy Series – #1

Vegan T-Shirt Advocacy Series – #1

I love how I can literally wear the message of my lifestyle “on my sleeve”, so to speak, without having to say anything. I am sort of a t-shirt queen, so having the opportunity to wear one with a vegan message becomes a form of education and advocacy for me. It’s...

Wacky Wiener Wednesday – November 9, 2016

Hump Day is here! Today is Wacky Weiner Wednesday. That’s right. It’s not just your plain old vegan hot dog on a bun with some mustard and sauerkraut. Not that there’s anything wrong with that dog, because every now and again I get me a real hankering for one of them...

National Pigs in a Blanket Day

National Pigs in a Blanket Day

The only pigs I wish to see in a blanket are sweet, cute, cuddly sentient beings lovingly lavishing and basking in the warmth of a fleece blanket. Yet, today is a national celebration of a food item which exemplifies the tolerance of phraseology, etc., which minimizes...
