The Best Vegan Cheesecake

Hi Y’all!  The inevitable finally happened.  My baby, Minda, started Kindergarten.  As we walked to the school on the first day, I had to force myself to put on a brave face and hold back the tears.  On day two when she cried and didn’t want to go inside the school when we arrived, IContinue reading “The Best Vegan Cheesecake”

Peach Pizza with Arugula, Gorgonzola, and Balsamic

Hi y’all! I realize that my posts have been few and far between. I hate when people go on about how busy they are because let’s be honest, who isn’t busy! I will say I also believe that we all have time for the things we make time for, and I just haven’t made bloggingContinue reading “Peach Pizza with Arugula, Gorgonzola, and Balsamic”

Linguini with Beets, Goat Cheese, and Walnuts

Howdy folks! I have to admit that there are so many vegetables that I have only discovered since getting into cooking.

With so much attention going toward the babyContinue reading “Cinco de Minda!”

Our Courtyard Container Garden

I haven’t done a gardening post in so long.  I really did not even plan on having a garden this year.  Our backyard is not huge and the dogs have run of the place, so it just didn’t seem worth the effort, especially since I was really pregnant at the time.  Around Mother’s Day, MattContinue reading “Our Courtyard Container Garden”

Scalini’s Labor Inducing Baked Eggplant Parmesan

The last few weeks of pregnancy can be a stressful time.  When labor could start at literally any moment, every pain or twitch gets me thinking “is this it?!”  I am not quite desperate to have the baby out, but just looking for a little something to speed things up naturally at this point.  IContinue reading “Scalini’s Labor Inducing Baked Eggplant Parmesan”
