I’ve loved all kinds of nachos since I can remember.  I distinctly remember some of the places with the best nachos on vacations, weekend dinners, and grabbing fast food lunches (Qdoba nachos take the cake for dairy nachos there).

How are you holding up through this cold and flu season? It seems like everyone is coming down with one form or another of a cold, the wicked flu going around, or something in between. My poor husband came down with a bout of it and I have been trying to avoid catching anything and everything for the last couple of weeks. My solution?

You know what I love most about Super Bowl weekend? Obviously, the snacks! I actually understand football about 40% more than I used to before I met my husband, but I’m not a superfan by a long shot. I can pay attention for a while, (more…)

There is always one basic-ish recipe that has always alluded me.  For a while, it was the vegan chocolate chip cookie, then it was the perfect vegan pancakes, but recently, I’ve been trying to conquer the perfect, fudgy dark chocolate vegan brownie.  I’ve tried a few renditions of vegan brownies, some coming out too cakey, other always coming out too dry, and I knew something was missing.
