Sweet BBQ Dressing


Whew, happy Friday eve!  Popping in with a quick recipe because it’s been a busy week! We’re still going through a lot of corn here, I love that the fresh stuff is in season and cheap and I got more in the farm box. I decided to use it in a fresh, BBQ themed salad. But […]

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, […]

Weekend List with Summer Fun


I hope everyone that celebrated it had a great 4th of July and no burns or hangovers today. It’s nice to get some rest time today after planning, shopping at Costco, and cleaning for yesterday’s party. We hosted a family party at our house where my nephew was the only kid there, but he had […]

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 […]

Weekend List with Gardening


Hope everyone is having a great Sunday. I’m feeling relaxed this morning with cooler temps and overcast sky outside, perfect conditions for a run shortly. I also caught up on a lot of house work yesterday including a lot of vacuuming which the chihuahuas do not like. It’s been cooler this weekend and cloudy, a […]

Simple Sweet Dressing


Leela is still not happy about the triple digit heat here, she kind of wanders around the house restless and seems a little more on edge being stuck inside. But it’s too dangerous to take them for long walks during the worst of the heat. Miko agrees, he’s still fine with chilling inside. I’m fine […]

Fermenting & Getting Inspired by Dr. Neal Barnard


The week is chugging along here, sweet Miko was sitting in the office with me this morning waiting for something exciting like walk time. My exciting week-long wait for home fermented sauerkraut is over and now I have two huge bowls of probiotic garlic dill sauerkraut stashed in the fridge. I’m sad to say that I have […]

Weekend List with New Protein


Miko has been happy to chill in the air conditioning with triple digit heat temps this weekend. Not Leela, when she gets bored and restless and wants a walk, she will tell us. It doesn’t matter that it’s uncomfortably hot and she’s just been out to the backyard, when she wants a walk – I […]

Nacho Avocado Dip


This week is almost over, whew! I’m looking forward to some fun this weekend too, the last few days at work have just seemed to drag on. I think I have summer fever, road trips and adventures sound much better in the sunny, warm weather than being in an office. So does having outdoor parties […]
