Brussels Sprouts That a Hater Loved

I was going to write about Non-Toxic watercolor paints today, but we are going to save that for tomorrow so that I can document Silas trying them out for the first time! Tonight’s dinner was so amazing, I had to share the recipe with you! I have NEVER once in my entire life enjoyed eating […]

Happy Independence Day Americans!

I am going to take a two day hiatus from writing articles, so that I can take the time to spend with my family! I hope you guys have a great 4th of July, and I will see you again on the 5th! Don’t forget to try out those no-meat burger recipes tomorrow!

Going Green With Your Laundry

Everyone has laundry to do. Some people do their own, while others do the whole household’s laundry. I am fortunate to have a Husband that does his own laundry. I do the household, Silas, and my own laundry. It is so nice not to have to worry about an extra person’s laundry!

Two Really Great No-Meat Burgers For The 4th of July Grill

The 4th of July is almost here and all that I can think of are burgers! I am a HUGE fan of grilling, even if it’s for vegetables. Yeah, you heard me right. I LOVE TO GRILL VEGETABLES. It is NOT blasphemous, so you should quit thinking that immediately. I was a griller before I […]

EASILY Make Your Own Non-Toxic Finger Paints At Home

After buying a whole array of finger paints from Hobby Lobby, for Silas, and setting them all up, I realized there was this stench coming from them. It was a terrible chemical smell! The bottles say non-toxic but they most certainly don’t smell like they’re non-toxic. This situation made me realize that I could just […]

Black Bean Chili with Quinoa

Andy LOVES chili. When I make chili, he takes the entire batch to work and eats it over a weeks period of time, all by himself. I find that hilarious, as I was never big on chili before we became vegetarians. I never really liked the flavor of ground beef. It always grossed me out. […]

DIY Upholstery & Carpet Cleaner That’s WAY Better Than Resolve!

Yesterday I got my Lavender essential oil (that I ordered from Amazon) in the mail. I was so very excited to see the UPS truck pull up to the house, that I nearly knocked my son over in the process to get to the door! I really wanted something that smelled less antiseptic than the […]

LENTIL LOAF…the better than meatloaf loaf

I am really big on comfort foods, and one of those comfort foods that my mother used to make me was meatloaf. I always loved meatloaf for what it is; a way to stuff all of your vegetables into a dish and hardly taste any of them at all! My grandmother (RIP) used to get […]

HUMMUS the Mediterranean bean dip

I love hummus because it makes for an AMAZING Mayo substitute on your burgers and sandwiches; but most of all it’s very healthy for you. Chickpeas (also known as garbanzo beans) are high in zinc, folate, and protein. They are also an excellent source for dietary fiber. Recent studies done, have shown chickpeas to aid […]
