I had plans to meet the lovely Gena for dinner at 7 — she came on gchat around 4:30 and asked if we could meet a little earlier since she wanted to go to a yoga class right nearby that let out at 6:30.

Whole Wheat Vegan Carrot Cake Muffins

Who says vegan baked goods aren’t awesome? Not me, that’s for sure. I can’t believe I haven’t posted this recipe yet!

I used to work for a government contractor back before I left to teach English in Continue Reading …

"Cheesy" Vegan Coconut Sautéed Chickpeas and Kale

I’d recommend hitting the grocery store immediately — because vegan or not, you will want to make this recipe ASAP. It smells and tastes like cheesy buttery goodness — but it’s vegan!
