Potato Soup For All Seasons

My husband and I have a running joke – after serving soup for dinner, he will eat his fill, compliment the food,  and then ask what’s for dinner. Soup is often relegated to the lowly position of side dish or appetizer  – Do you want soup or salad with your meal? – instead of main …

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 …

Out of the Loop

Until fairly recently I was an avid blog reader, following a variety of writers on topics such as vegan living, minimalism, homesteading and homeschooling.

The past two weeks I have been working to make all my baked goods with 100% whole wheat. …

Fall Gardening

I am going into my second winter here in San Antonio. Having lost my summer garden some time in August due to the heat and dry conditions, I am looking forward to some cooler weather crops. This Spring we had an overabundance of leaf lettuces, and this Fall I want to take advantage of our extended …

Chocolate Covered Pretzels


The nearest natural foods store is a 20-30 minute drive downtown, so we only make the hike every couple of weeks. We usually head to HEB Central Market and stock up on bulk items and perishables like Grain Co sausage (I need to just bite the bullet and make the darn things myself… I know) and …
