Weekend Recipe Roundup | Vegan Recipes

Sprout has been teething (pushing out her last baby molar) for the last three days and we all are worn out.

I held her, I worked while I held her, we read … [Read more...]

Hope you had a great 4th of July, if you celebrate it!

Crazy?  Yes, totally! A couple of days ago one of the instructors at the gym where I teach texted to see if I would sub her class today.  Softie that I am, I said "YES", and my usual 2-hour workout Saturday turned into three, back-to-back, hours of teaching.  And, since I am all hands on and do everything that I tell my students to do, I am now relaxing.  Having burnt … [Read more...]
