My mom was in town for a few days and rather than do the typical ‘every man for himself’ breakfast I figured I’d make her something special.
There was a neglected container of tofu in the fridge and some spinach that was about to go bad so I decided on making fake scrambled [...]
Every time I tried making a tofu recipe the flavors were right but the texture was wrong. I wanted crispy tofu, not a mess of tofu falling apart and sticking to my pan. Cooking it seemed tricky and not worth my frustration so I didn’t try it again.
Over the summer I tried a tasty [...]
“I said I’m going to do this, I can do this, and I just did it.”
That is what 17 year old Angie Fuentes had to say about running in her school’s cross country team despite the fact that she is blind. The Washington Post wrote a great article on this inspiring [...]
I have a HUGE sweet tooth. Matter of fact, desserts and pizza are pretty much the only things that were holding me back from being vegan. With any other food I’ll make an effort to stay away from animal products but if you offer me a slice of cake or a brownie, I’m not going [...]
Yesterday the temperature dropped and it was raining a bit while I was cheering on my son and his cross country team. It was that cold wind and rain that makes you uncomfortable and I had gone straight to the race in my work flats, big mistake. After about 20 minutes my feet were [...]

Kale is an iron and calcium rich super green that should be a part of everyone’s diet. It can be sauteed like spinach with a little olive oil and garlic or chopped up and added to a salad, pasta or a hot bowl of quinoa.
To make the kale leaves into chips they are [...]
1/2 marathon: check!
When my husband asked me if I wanted to do the Baltimore 1/2 marathon back in the spring I reluctantly said yes. I really don’t like being out of my comfort zone and he knows that. I’m thankful that he pushes me though because otherwise I’d be on my couch watching [...]
