Whole Wheat Bourbon Banana Bread

Vegan Whole Wheat Bourbon Banana Bread by Kathy Hester

I'm on a fall kick and it won't be too long before pumpkin gets me under its spell. But we all need to remember it's not the only fall ingredient to get excited about.

I'm not sure I can be any more excited. OATrageous Oatmeals finally comes out today and if you pre-ordered it maybe it's already waiting for you at home!

Maple Spiced Hot Toddy – Perfect for Fall!

Maple Spiced Toddy - bourbon, spices and tea brewed together for the perfect fall beverage! #toddy

I have to warn you that there is some gratuitous tableware in this post. I am drawn to steampunk things and that means lots of octopi (Octopuses?) and Krakens, not to mention goggles and crafty things. I got these dishes at Anthropologie last year. While they aren't exactly for day to day use, I … [Go to Full Post...]

Make Your Own Coffee Concentrate with your favorite coffee #coffee #coldbrew #coffeeconcentrate

I realized I've been teasing you with all kinds of coffee drinks, but I haven't shown you how to make your own coffee concentrate yet. Sorry about that!

DIY Fresh Blackberry Syrup

DIY Blackberry Syrup #vegan  #rootforveggies

There was a drink I used to get at Starbuck's that's long since discontinued. It was a blackberry green tea frappuccino and I really liked it. Over the years I tried to buy a pre-made berry syrup I liked. I couldn't find blackberry one so I tried a bunch of raspberry ones that I hated. Today … [Go to Full Post...]
