Pink Pops

I’ve pretty much always loved summer, but moving to the Midwest made me truly appreciate the summer months.  During my short stint as a Sconnie*, I came to realize there are two modes of life in the Midwest: winter, and not winter.  It might sound silly, but when winter weather lasts almost 6 months you …

Mushroom Stroganoff

Stroganoff was one of my favorite dinners growing up, so when I went vegan I KNEW I had to veganize it.  This dish is extremely creamy and rich and is loaded with tons of deliciously meaty mushrooms.  Serve it over freshly cooked pasta with a side of your favorite veggies and you’ve got yourself a …

Cajun Chickpea Sammie

Well, summer is officially over and I’m not sure if I’m ready to let it go.  Last week was the official start of fall which means school is back in session and I’m back at work.  That also means I am now packing two lunches, instead of one, during the week.  Brady loves taking leftovers, …
