New Product Review: Vegan Egg

I found a local source of Follow Your Heart’s new product VeganEgg. I was quite excited to try this! Typically when I bake I use either EnerG Egg Replacer or Flax Seed, but it was interesting to see a vegan egg replacer that can actually be eaten as an egg, and not just serve as…

Down Home

    You may have noticed but there have been a lot of changes around here.   The biggest change by far is the name.   While I have loved writing at The Vegan Bee, over the past year or so I have felt the need to move in different directions with the topics I…

Three Weeks In

We purchased a cottage on 1-acre in the woods of the Florida Panhandle three weeks ago. It’s a real fixer-upper, but each day we make a little more progress. The first week, running water was the biggest task. Some of the water pipes had cracked during the period the house sat uninhabited. The first few…
