I made these stuffed mushrooms on a whim the other day, because I had this amazing Miyokos ‘double cream’ vegan cream cheese laying around. I know, right?? Like… read more

Twenty-Minute Oats + How to Be a Crunchy Hippie Mom

I have an amazing recipe to share with y’all today. Get ready! It’s pretty much straight from the garden of Eden, but first I need to confess something. I don’t like oatmeal. I know, horrors! The self-proclaimed crunchy Mom doesn’t eat the staple, the basic essence of the whole-food-crunchy-hippie-Mom movement, the god of the grains, oatmeal??… read more

Barefoot-in-the-Garden Salad.

Now that it’s April and it’s not deathly cold anymore, I’m feeling lighter, which means I’m EATING lighter which means… I’m living on fresh, crispy green things. Like this fresh crispy salad.
