Happy weekend! I’m popping in quickly today to share a winter citrus quinoa salad that has been a staple for me the past few weeks. In an effort to keep with my intentions for the year, I wanted to find a salad that is filling, easy to throw together and hearty enough that I won’t be hangrily tearing through the cupboards for a snack in an hour. Mixing in a handful of pre-cooked quinoa and drizzling over a creamy lemon tahini dressing that even a tahini hater like me can love all seem to do the trick. (more…)

As with many years, I started out 2017 with a set of goals and intentions. Not really resolutions, since those are kind of not my jam (or anyone’s it seems) and they seem to slip to the wayside as soon as February (aka Valentines and Easter, aka candy season) roll around. Mine include things like ‘drink/eat something green everyday’, ‘set and meet goals for the blog (!!)’ and ‘drink less booze’. While I’m not a lush by any means, I can tend to (more…)

Let’s take it all the way back to last summer, when it was balmy outside and walking around without a coat was the norm (it always seems so distant when it’s the winter!). In Milwaukee, we are notorious for having a festival every weekend between Memorial Day and Labor, whether it be a huge music festival or a festival to celebrate all the different cultures that collide here, we’ve got it all! One of the most fun festivals we have here is the Bastille Days, (more…)

Vegan Baking Basics: Cornstarch + Water Egg Substitute

If you are looking for an easy vegan egg substitute, this basic cornstarch and water egg replacement works in almost any vegan dessert!

Today is short and sweet, because cornstarch + water egg substitute is one of the most basic and easy vegan egg replacers around, but I always seem to forget about it! In light of making batch upon batch of cookies over the holiday season, I realized that a few recipes I was testing out weren’t coming out quite right, and I wasn’t sure why. I adjusted the oil, added more flour, tweaked the baking time and still, things just kept coming out really…meh. (more…)

It’s been a minute (more like 2 weeks!), right? Between the holidays, needed time to chill out and trying to get over two nasty colds, a break was well needed. I have the whole month of January already planned out, so I am excited about the recipes that are coming in the next few weeks! My goal is to start trying to incorporate more savory recipes too, since a girl can’t subsist on waffles and cake alone (much as I might try). My past self must have known that my future self was going to need this power packed matcha (more…)
