Diagon Alley and Homemade Pumpkin Juice

Easy Homemade Harry Potter Pumpkin Juice with no added sugar!

In case you didn’t know, Cheryl and I are huge Harry Potter geeks. I’m even re-reading the whole series again right now to get in the mood for Halloween. After all, I have a fancy Gothic dinner party to plan for the end of October! We waited to hear when they were opening up the new Diagon Alley […]

6 Vegan Apple Recipes for Fall

6 Vegan Apple Recipes for Fall

The weather has been cold and dreary here in Durham and I have loved every minute of it! It finally feels like fall. I’m looking forward to seeing the leaves change and wearing sweaters again. Not too mention eating recipes that are full of apples, pumpkin and butternut squash. I have a roundup of apple recipes for you […]

Sonoran Tacos from Vegan Tacos and a Giveaway!

Vegan-Tacos-Cover-feature

When I was asked to review Vegan Tacos by Jason Wyrick I didn’t imagine that a book on tacos could be this extensive. It gives the history of tacos, teaches you to make your own tortillas, a variety of fillings, toppings, sides and drinks too. Please note that the publisher did give me a copy […]

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. Today I want to give pecans in the spotlight. Don’t worry though, I’ll talk about apples, pears, sweet potatoes and all kinds […]

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! Today’s dreamy oatmeal recipe is actually not from the book. I’ve found when I do a single subject cookbook that it’s hard to snap out of it. My mind keeps thinking of […]

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 immediately fell in love with them. […]

Make Your Own Coffee Concentrate

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! It’s so easy to do that I forget that it’s not common knowledge. I first had coffee concentrate when I lived in New Orleans and you could […]
