Since I've been trying to keep up with Ice Cream Tuesdays, I was particularly excited about reviewing Vegan Ice Cream by Jeff Rogers. I was invited to be in a review group by the publisher and received this book for free. My opinions are my own and I was not paid or required to write this … [Go to Full Post...]
This year I was determined to grow some yellow squash and zucchini in my tiny garden. I have a ton of sun in my backyard but no good place to put an in-ground garden, so I have an Earthbox garden.

I must warn you - there are gratuitous cute doggie pics in this post. Personally, I think it should perk up your day because these are pictures of my two dogs enjoying a few things out of the Dog Lovers Box from VeganCuts. They kindly sent me one free to try. Well, for Max and Brenna to try … [Go to Full Post...]
