California Baby Vegan Bubble Bath

February 26, 2011

Our poor little guy was feeling under the weather today. He seemed in good spirit most of the day, but he had one major case of runny nose and watery eyes that got him very frustrated a few times. This is only his second time ever being sick, which leaves me without much mom-experience in…

I saw this ABC “game”  on Lindsay and LJ‘s blogs today, and since it seemed like a fun Friday post, I wanted to do it too! A. Age: 26 B. Bed size: Queen C. Chore you hate: I can’t say I hate it, but washing the dishes definitely isn’t my favorite. D. Dogs: I love…

Vegan Becomes Obsessed With Juicing

February 24, 2011

If this was a newspaper about my life, that would be the headline of the day. In the past 24 hours I’ve juiced everything green I could get my hands on. I mean, really only the green contents of my refrigerator, but that was a kale, purple kale, rainbow chard,and arugula. My first juice, last…

Vegan Cake Truffles

Do you ever accidentally fall asleep in the evening and then wake up wondering if you should go about the tasks you had planned to accomplish or just call it a day and go to bed? I just did that. I even chose “just crawl in bed and worry about it tomorrow,” but then the…

Meet The Vegan Lover’s Pizza Casserole

We’ve read to our little man since days after he was born, but I remember when I couldn’t wait for the day he would sit through an entire story, sitting on the edge of his seat instead of mentally, and often physically, wondering off mid-book. I guess I got what I wished for because now…

Vegan Toddler Tip: Eating Their Veggies

February 18, 2011

Although my little one had been eating vegetables with ease the first year of solid foods, something changed when the second year came around. Maybe it was the gradual switch from purees to more steamed vegetable pieces, but he started spitting vegetables out, pushing them aside on his plate , or refusing them altogether. I…

Broccoli Slaw And Perfect Vegan Cheesecake

This morning, while my little man ate his oatmeal with organic blueberries and green juice, I decided I just had to organize my pantry right then and there. There I am, it’s 5:30am, in my yoga pants and tee shirt pulling out flours, oils, and ingredients galore, left and right, running out of places to…

“They’ll Think It’s Homemade” Vegan Chocolate Cake

Do you ever get home late on a holiday, a primarily dessert-centered holiday, and realize it’s too late to bake anything? I guess these things happen on, say, a Thursday too… But anyway, last night I found a solution! Needing a Valentine’s Day dessert in a hurry, I pulled out an Amy’s Chocolate Cake I…

Vegan Sweet And Sour Peppers With Tender Bites

February 14, 2011

Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope yours was as great as ours! The little man was so excited to put on his new Valentine’s Day shirt displaying a sweet puppy with a heart reading, “Sloppy Kisses 25¢”. After a breakfast of banana and peanut butter hemp seed toast, he went to play in the living room,…

Alicia’s Vegan Rustic Pasta

February 11, 2011

Ever since I arranged my cookbooks neatly on their little shelf at our new place, I haven’t even touched them. It’s just so unlike me to go a whole week without cracking open one of my favorite vegan cookbooks, let alone a whole month! So after catching up on some blog reading, including a few…
