Monday Musings… Crabby Cakes NOT!

I shared this picture in my post last week when I featured my Vegan Wine Weekend Culinary experience. I already knew that I wanted to make these little gem of a spin on Crab Cakes. My journey of eating plant-based had left me missing some seafood, crab cakes being one of them. With Mother’s day…

What get’s you out the door?

Yesterday I procrastinated a run. The sun was bright but the temps registered between 28-30 degrees brrrr. Usually I don’t mind running in the winter, but my lame excuse yesterday was that my toes were already cold! No I don’t wear cotton socks, smartwool or icebreaker for this girl. In all honesty it was just…

… is it the “flu?” lots of thoughts

I sit her cozy in my kitchen sipping tea, fireplace going, listening to Passion 2013 and reading a lot about the flu. I know I take a risk opening up this topic, but so many people have been sick at work. Reports on TV state it’s the worst flu season in a long time the…

Resolutions, Goals, it’s day 3! How’s that working for you?

I have never been one to really “do” resolutions, literally! Yes, there were years I sat down and wrote them out, or shared them with other people, because of course that is what the experts tell you to do, share, have accountability, easier not to fail… Day 3 hits, and it hits that your goal…

Monday Musings… sometimes ordinary is extrodaniary!

Sometimes the ordinary can be made special. I experienced that this past weekend just hanging out with my siblings and parents. We didn’t do anything special, but in my heart it was such a special treat. The recipe I share at the end of this post is made with Summer Squash…

Why I hung up my stethoscope and picked up my knife

That title might be a little alarming and more so in light of a lot of recent events, but if you have followed this blog for any time, then you know how I can roll and that I try to be as witty as the rest of my groovy family. I have been in transition…

It’s a New Year, why not?

“I have made reservations for us at ______, for New Years, I hope you will go.” He assured me that they had “things” I could eat as he had explained that there were dietary needs in his group. This was a text I got from my friend a few days before New Year. My mind…

Timely Tuesday

I haven’t blogged in a while. There a few things that have been put on the “back burner”. I could use the excuse that my house is torn up, literally and that will be the one today! I finally decided to get new flooring… 11 years later. When I got this house, I hated the…

Monday Musings…. Cheesecake make over

The origin of cheesecake is uncertain, but it is believed that it was served to athletes during the first Olympic games in 776 BC. A recipe for cheesecake was found in a Roman treatise around 200 BC. Centuries later, cheesecake is still a favorite dessert, however if you are trying not to eat dairy, what…

I’m musing, even though it’s not Monday

Yesterday was Labor day, and while I “labored” over almost 30 miles on my bike, I otherwise took a break, rested, chilled! I ate a huge plate of yummy dairy free nachos covered in black beans, greens, avocado oh my!Saturday I had the pleasure of hosting a little Not so Cheesy workshop. What a fun…

Monday Musings… Bacon, Bacon, Bacon! Maybe

This past weekend where I live, the annual Bacon Fest was held. Vendors gather at a local venue with live music, and everything bacon. Other meats wrapped in bacon, bacon ice cream, chocolate bacon, I’m sure bacon beer, you get the idea. For obvious reasons this is one festival I have never attended. Don’t get…
