I’m back! I can’t believe March has passed so quickly! My life this month was consumed with work travel, personal travel and moving into my new place, and haven’t had a chance to post as many recipes *ahem* any *ahem* as I’d like.

It seems like there is a theme right now in my recipes where I use two particular ingredients: bananas and chocolate, and my many ways in which I have the combo for breakfast! 😉 This recipe came about by some morning creativity when I realized I was out of blueberries, and only had banana to … Continue reading

This year for Christmas Eve dinner, we re-thought what “traditional Christmas dinner” meant.  The memories, for me, are not in the food, but in the company and the feelings.  Sure, others will disagree – you like how sleepy you are after eating Turkey, or look forward to that one dish that Grandma makes just at … Continue reading

The first year I was vegan, I noticed a huge change in my immune system. When I used to get sick maybe once a year, I started to get sick constantly. If I got too little sleep, I got sick; if I went out for a night on the town, two days later I had … Continue reading
