Vegan Christmas

VEGAN CHRISTMAS!! I had so many delicious vegan dishes for Christmas this year! I’m just going to dive right into it because it’s all so exciting. However, it needs to be said that I didn’t make any of this stuff. December is really busy for me at work and otherwise, so I knew ahead of…

The Most Important Meal of the Day

When you hear that phrase, you know what I’m talking about – breakfast, of course. Apparently, it’s extremely important. But I have a confession; I very rarely eat breakfast.
