My long birthday weekend is going well, I could get used to relaxing mornings to take the dogs for leisurely walks, go to the gym, drink coffee, go for runs outside, etc. It’s back to the grind tomorrow after another day of fun today and I guess that’s a good thing too. My niece made […]

Super Balsamic Basil Dressing

We’ve been enjoying that it hasn’t been as hot here with temps in the 80s and low 90s, Miko loves a little toy throwing time in the backyard. And I noticed our basil plant is going nuts, thriving in the crazy heat. Expect a lot of basil recipes from me over the next few weeks! […]

Creamy Chili Dressing

Miko is recovered from all the excitement on the 4th of family fun and fireworks. He took nap time very seriously between play sessions on our day off yesterday. But was not happy with me for leaving him at home this morning when I left for work. I felt the same after four fun days off with family, fun, […]

Fiery Ginger Dressing

Poor Leela, she has an irrational phobia of house flies, hates them. She turns into a nervous, shaking wreck whenever one gets in the house. So much so that she’s willing to cuddle up with Miko in their kennel safe spot to hide from them. Not Miko, he’s won’t stop until he catches them and spits them back […]

Summery Garlic Hemp Dressing

Sunday we headed to IKEA for lunch and a little shopping where I finally tried IKEA’s new vegan veggie balls. IKEA has always been okay to eat vegan at offering salads, soups, and veggie wraps, but hardly anything exciting enough to justify waiting through the long weekend line. I waited it out because I was […]

I’m so happy tomorrow is Friday, I’m looking forward to rest and fun after this work week. And catching up on laundry, eek! Miko has been cuddling up to hubby a lot this week looking for play time, he gets restless and bored with us working all day. I wish I could take Miko to work, […]

I’m sad the long weekend is over and it was back to the grind today, but we have more fun planned next weekend and a short work week! Memorial Day was very low key here, my mom came over with her super energetic dog, Dasher. All three dogs instantly started competing for her attention, she could not get […]

Raw Vegan Version of a Classic

Friday is almost here, thank goodness! And Miko is thankful for zucchini scraps he gets when I break out my vegetable spiral slicer. Summer approaching means soon zucchini will be everywhere here and I’m looking forward to loading up on massively huge ones at farmer’s markets just so I can use my spiral slicer for […]

Salads Can Be Gooey and Cheesy

IMG_7788

Miko is a little bored with me this week. I’m still feeling washed out with this cold, but it’s almost gone! Thank goodness, I’m ready after 5 days of it! Colds can cause some interesting food cravings for me, anything salty, fatty, and/or sweet which are bad options for energy crashes and feeling even more […]

How Hemp Seeds Can Be Creamy Comfort Food

IMG_7734

It’s been a feisty week here so far, the chihuahuas seem to have spring fever. Miko has been taunting Leela more to play chase. Leela wants nothing to do with it and turns into a growling tornado when she’s decided she’s had enough. That’s Miko’s queue to hide under the table for a bit while she […]
