Weekend List with Dessert Inpiration


Yesterday we had a fun taco family gathering at my sister’s house with plenty of vegan options starting with whipping up the Whole Fruit Margarita recipe in the Vitamix recipe book. And I got brain freeze because it’s been awhile since I’ve had a frozen slushy drink! There was also tortilla chips with fresh made […]

Why Balsamic is Better Sweet


Thank goodness Friday is almost here! The chihuahuas are already getting their rest on! Rough life! I finally watched Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead 2 on Netflix this week and I was very impressed with it. The juicing healthy turn around method Joe Cross promotes isn’t necessarily my style, but it’s an extreme way to make a […]

Spicy Citrus and Ginger to Wake Up a Salad


Leela is getting revenge. She’s put up with Miko stealing parts of her dinners and breakfasts for years because she’ll only eat part and come back for more later … if there’s anything left. Not anymore! She’s been going after what’s left in Miko’s bowl this week and seems to have more of an appetite. Can’t […]

Weekend List with Dr. Pam Popper


So far it’s been a great and informative weekend here after a crazy week, hubby and I started it with a wonderful dinner at a local Thai restaurant with Blue Moon beer and spicy curry tofu which I will never get tired of. Yesterday we headed to the gym in the morning for a longer […]

This Turmeric Dressing Makes You Feel Alive


This week started off strong, I was feeling good about starting my mornings earlier for more productivity before work and getting to the gym after a focused vinyasa yoga class on Sunday. Then things started getting crazy at work with lots of projects, urgent problems, and overtime. The IT world can just be fun and spontaneous like […]

Sweet and Spicy Tahini Brings a Salad to Life


I’ve officially completed my second hot vinyasa yoga class at Zuda Yoga thanks to ClassPass and I’m starting to really like it and get the hang of it, I’m tempted to work up to an advance level if I can fit the classes in with my current gym/work schedule. There is something very therapeutic and relaxing […]

Weekend List with More Kicky Avocado


Weekend mornings are great for sipping coffee and enjoying a little quiet time in the office with this guy catching up on news and stuff from the week. After 5 days of rushing to get out of the house in the morning, slow mornings is one of the things I look forward to most about […]

When Avocado with Kick is Fabulous


We finally got a little bit of rain here this week. No where near enough to make a dent in the scary drought conditions, but enough to make the dogs protest going outside to do their business. Miko is so funny when he thinks it’s too cold and wet outside, he curls his tail and butt in, […]

This Nut-free Cake Pleases Everyone


I’m still recovering from the fun-loaded weekend after being on call for work, celebrating, running errands, and our Easter celebration. I need a weekend from the weekend! But it all went good and we had a huge and active Easter celebration at my sister’s house with family, friends, and way too much food. Thanks to […]

Weekend List


Happy Easter. It’s also a big weekend here since it’s hubby’s birthday, lots of fun and eating with a family party later. I created a huge, nut-free raw vegan chocolate mousse cake recipe for the event and will be posting the recipe soon if it’s a hit. I successfully maxed out our 14-cup food processor […]
