New Zealand Adventure – Wellington

03.04.17 / no comments

After leaving Abel Tasman behind, we drove through the night to a hotel in Nelson so we would be closer to Picton for our ferry the next day. Scott was a real trooper for getting us safely to the hotel despite being exhausted. This was a first time driving on the rather remote southern island […]

Chocolate Cookie Butter King Cake

01.07.17 / one comment

Yesterday was the official start of the Mardi Gras season in New Orleans and we decided to make a king cake. While gathering supplies at the store, we decided to experiment and fill the king cake with Trader Joe’s Speculoos Cookie and Cocoa Swirl spread. The results were pretty delicious and as a result, I’ve […]

Twin Peaks Birthday

12.17.15 / no comments

For my birthday we took a trip that had been on my list for ages. We went up to the PNW to visit the town of Twin Peaks. Now of course Twin Peaks is a fictional town made up for TV but the real town exists in Snoqualmie Valley, Washington right outside of Seattle. We […]

Bay Area Food

07.23.14 / one comment

I had so many food pictures from our trip to the Bay Area that I decided they warranted their own post. The last time I visited the Bay Area Cinnaholic did not exist and I was anxious to try it. Given our limited time we only had a few chances to eat out and so we […]

Vegan King Cake 2.0

03.03.14 / 4 comments

Happy Lundi Gras! Yesterday, Scott and I spent nearly all day making king cakes and decided to revise our recipe a bit in trying to recreate a Randazzo’s king cake. Everyone in New Orleans has different opinions on which bakery makes the best king cake but Scott and I agree that Randazzo’s is our favorite. We had already […]

Seabirds Kitchen

This past Sunday, Scott and I were in Costa Mesa and had the pleasure of eating at the new-ish Seabirds Kitchen. I had no idea that Seabirds had grown out of their famous food truck and into an actual brick and mortar restaurant so I was very excited when I discovered that we were less than a […]

Fall Catch Up

Here are some highlights from the past two months. Halloween Movie Massacre 666 Shawn and Alix threw their 6th Halloween movie marathon in October, where we watched movies and consumed massive amounts of vegan food for 24 hours. I made Isa’s cashew queso, pumpkin spice mini donuts and mini crunch bars with peanut butter shell drizzle. […]

VeganMoFo Blog Love

09.18.13 / 4 comments

This week has been a bit more hectic at work so I haven’t been able to do much recipe blogging but I’ve been making some recipes that I found on other VeganMoFo blogs. MoFo has been great at introducing me to some new (to me) blogs and I have loved seeing some of the amazing […]

Red Beans and Rice

09.17.13 / 3 comments

One of my favorite foods is Red Beans and Rice. Growing up in New Orleans, I was not a huge fan of a lot of the traditional cuisine (and that was before I went Vegan) but Red Beans and Rice was always my favorite. I could probably eat this every day of the week and […]

Cruelty-Free Products I Love

09.13.13 / 4 comments

It’s Top 5 Friday! Today I am building off an earlier post about living a vegan lifestyle, and sharing 5 more cruelty-free products that I’m pretty excited about: 1. Schmidt’s Deodorant in Bergamot + Lime – if you’ve been following along for MoFo you will know I just scored some of this two weeks ago […]
