I hope you’re looking forward to these wonderful bars!  I mentioned them in my pumpkin hot chocolate post because they were in the background.  Although I changed the recipe a little bit before sharing it with you, so they look a little different.  I wanted them a little more oaty, not to mention I wanted […]

I have big news!  OK, it’s not big to anyone else but me, but I have to share with someone…  I’m completely done my tomatoes!  I was just waiting for the last batch to ripen, and I think all but a couple that may still ripen are now ripe and being cooked down as I […]

Today is a rainy, cold, miserable day here.  Although I’m sure it is far more miserable elsewhere in the world and I’m keeping those on the east coast in my thoughts.  I did think that some hot chocolate would be a nice thing to share today.  I think we could all use a mug of […]

This is one of my favorite meals.  I should say that this is what a lot of my meals look like.  I quite often cook up some kind of rice-and-beans type dish to keep in the fridge and reheat as needed for weekday lunches for the kids and myself and then I roast some veggies […]

Raw Vegan Coconut Brownies

Have you ever made a raw brownie?  Or any kind of raw dessert?  Of course they’re different in taste and texture, and it’s not like I don’t enjoy the real deal, buttery and sugary brownies(even if I do like them a little less sweet now), but I will gladly choose these as a very healthy […]
