Oatmeal Cookie Butter Sweetened with Raisins

2014-04-23-16.36.08

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 […]

Another day, another syrup/sauce for Vegan Mofo! Today I have a thick, rich chocolate syrup for you. It has a base of chocolate stout beer with a little full fat coconut milk and sweetened with coconut sugar. It’s not exactly on the good-for-you list, but you’ll only use a tablespoon or 2 per iced mocha. […]

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 I thought I’d give making […]

Making You a Priority: Exercise

Taking TIme Out

I tend to overdo it with work. Promoting a new book while working on book 5, doing recipe development and social media pr – my to-do list only seems to get longer. There are more days than I want to admit where I work from when I get up in the morning until I go […]
