My favorite.

I woke up this morning in my own bed, half slanted to the right and thinking about how we need to fix that bed leg that we broke before we left for California. I lifted myself out of bed to find myself in front of the bathroom mirror; my hair reflects relative...

“Egg” Seasoning the Veganing

Just about the only thing I think we really miss having is egg. As luck would have it, there is this amazing spice called Kala Namak and it tastes just like hardboiled egg yolk. Kala Namak is also called Black Salt, Indian Black Salt, or Himalayan Black Salt. You...

Coffee Date with Lovey

Yeah, he's cute and all, but there are pastries to be had. And mama ain't foolin'. Beautiful, delicious, amazing vegan pastries. But, I'm cheap, and Wildflour is not, so I always buy their "day old" cookies, 3 for $5, which is still kind of steep, but definitely more...

All Signs Point

Oh. My. Stars. My friend, Petra, invited me to go with her, her husband and her sister to Niantic for their annual pilgrimage to the 30% off book sale at the Book Barn.  So first of all: The Book Barn. My first visit to The Book Barn was with my dear friend Eggie a...

The Storm Has Passed

Well, it is January, and we had a storm. It is New England, after all, and we've been pretty lucky with a reasonably warm winter thus far.  I heard the total accumulation was only 18" or something, but some of our drifts are waist-high, as you can see here: Really,...
