Babycakes Friday: Peach Pie

Confession: I’ve never made pie before. Ever. I’ve eaten a lot of pies, but something about pie crust intimidates me tremendously. However, upon perusing through my trusty Babycakes cookbook, I decided this would be the week to change all that. Being gluten free and vegan, this wasn’t your traditional pie crust. But it turned out … Continue reading

Baked Eggplant Fries

Want to know why Adrienne is drooling? Eggplant. I know, eggplant isn’t normally a drool worthy food. In fact, he’s kind of a frumpy little vegetable. But when sliced up and baked at searingly hot temperatures, eggplants become fries, and fries are drool worthy. The secret is to soak these suckers in ice water prior … Continue reading

Sugar-Free Chocolate Sauce

Yesterday was an empty day. You know the kind…no matter what you eat, not matter how much, you’re still hungry. So, I was foraging around the pantry looking for something to fill me up when I stumbled upon a very old bag of pretzels. I think they expired last year. I’m not a huge fan … Continue reading

Veggie Burger Salad

We have a really good problem happening in our back yard. The lettuce is growing out of control. Which means I can’t stop making salads. Even if I wanted to. Today’s salad was born because of an impulse purchase I made at the grocery store… Without a doubt, the best veggie burgers I’ve ever had. … Continue reading


Hello and happy Monday! Babycakes and I started the week out with a hike this morning. But not without some fuel before we left. Dates stuffed with peanut butter. Nature’s candy. When we got home, I was hot and sweaty. All I could think about was something frosty for breakfast. 1/2 cup unsweetened soy milk … Continue reading

Susan from The Great Balancing Act was recently diagnosed with Lymphoma, and since she is stuck in the hospital, she has no way of making money to pay for her chemo. Talk about a double whammy. The blogging community is pulling together … Continue reading

Drier than the Gobi

Good Morning!! This is the face I looked at while eating breakfast this morning. Good, indeed. These are the coffee beans I ground to make coffee this morning. Also good. This is the pancake mix I received from Swanson Health Products to review. Unfortunately, it wasn’t good. Meeker’s description… These are drier than the Gobi … Continue reading

Babycakes Friday: Banana Bread

This week I tackled banana bread. Tackled? How hard can banana bread be? You ask yourself. Well, you have to understand that Meeker’s sister makes the best banana bread you’ve ever had. And kind of like his mom’s lasagna, I don’t touch those recipes. I don’t want them to be compared to mine (which they … Continue reading


My day was pretty simple. A fun, easy food, a couple of walks, a thunderstorm, and a lot of reading. Breakfast Look at that peanut butter oozing out of the date. What a way to wake up (also included handfuls of cherries, two slices of toast, and a large cup of coffee). Lunch Sandwich with … Continue reading
