Spinach Linguini with Pesto and Avocado

This weekend hoofin’ it around the Capitol Square farmers market, I found a booth selling fresh handmade organic pasta. They only had two types that were vegan, so I bought a 9 oz package of their spinach linguini to use for dinner tonight. Of course, I hadn’t figured out what I was going to do … [Read more…]

Pesto with Spaghetti Squash

Start out with making some vegan Pesto like I used in my Spinach Linguini with Pesto and Avocado. Set this to the side and steam up your spaghetti squash. One the size of a standard American football should take an hour at 350 degrees. Don’t forget to poke holes with a knife to let the … [Read more…]

Kohlrabi & Beet Coleslaw

So this past week in the CSA we received a head of cabbage, my first kohlrabi ever and some beets. I don’t remember the last time I ate a beet. I have never been a big cabbage fan. But seeing these three things in the box, all I could think about was…coleslaw! The recipe was … [Read more…]

Jambalaya with Tofurkey Sausage

So this week, I had a craving for some good jambalaya, but I couldn’t find any recipe. I checked out a couple of non-vegan versions to see what kind of ingredients would be used. After reviewing a few things out there, I concocted this, which knocked my socks off. So I am here to share … [Read more…]

Homemade Maple and Brown Sugar Granola

One of the best things I did when I became a vegetarian is transition my family off of cookies and sweet, sugary cereals and onto to granola as our treat. We bought granola bars, granola cereal and I think I even tried a granola bread or two. Life was dandy.

Blazin’ Three Bean Chili

This one comes with a warning. If you make this recipe as specified below, you better like hot foods. This what I call a triple burner, once on the way in, once while digesting and once on the way out. Now, not everyone feels hot foods the same way, but if anything I make is … [Read more…]

Black Bean Burgers with Roasted Pepper and Garlic

Having to fed two omnivore children, especially when one leans to be more of a carivore, is always a challenge in a vegan house. One of the tricks I have found is to work with omnivorous meals and make them vegan. We have had the commercial burger patties in the past, but not all of … [Read more…]

Verizon iPhone 5 LTE issues

I am now on my second iPhone 5 and sim card from Verizon. I have been having issues with the time settings on my phone rolling back between 20 minutes and an hour (mostly 30 minutes). This prevented me from using some apps.

Remembering Those That Came Before Us

Yesterday one of my closest friends lost someone in her family that was a second mother to her. It was also the 12th anniversary of my father’s mother passing. For me, this isn’t a sad day. I’ve dealt with it and have been able to move on. But I wanted to share how I coped … [Read more…]

A Dream

At the very beginning of my career, heck as I was studying to start it, in web design and development I took a course on the laws surrounding web design. It was a short course and really only covered how Section 508 applies to building software for the government and their contractors. But during that … [Read more…]
