This is a recipe I made up with Jimmy in mind. My husband, the milkshake connoisseur, to my shock and awe, has agreed to do a 30-day Paleo challenge. For the next 30 days, we will be eating grain, dairy, and legume-free. No mac & cheese, no pizza at Cogan's, no frequent trips to Dairy Queen. We will be eating plenty of grass-fed and free-range meats, eggs, vegetables, fruit, nuts, seeds, and healthy oils. Last night, we stayed up past midnight talking of goals and dreams, and one of the Continue Reading

Some people thing vegan Continue Reading

VeganMoFo is the Vegan Month Of Food. Based on NaNoWriMo, our collective goal as vegan bloggers is to write about food for the entirety of October.

And now they're having Iron Chef Challenges. So clevah! I wanted to post about these awesome muffins I baked yesterday. I had to whip up something to take to the 7 Cities Crafters Continue Reading
