    Pasta is always a favorite. Especially when it can be loaded with fresh, seasonal veggies. In Europe, white asparagus are quite popular.  These sunlight-deprived stalks are a little milder and more delicate than their green counterparts. Here’s one of my favorite ways to eat them:

    Vegan + Gluten-Free Recipe | Boozy Berries & Cream

    by Erin Griffin on May 13, 2014

    eg_berries3 For months, my fridge has been stuffed with more strawberries than I know what to do with. I’ve been making chia seed jam and strawberry chocolate parfaits, not to mention slicing those red beauties up on our fresh greens and tossing them in to smoothies. I think I’ve actually come to take for granted that there will always be a quart staring back at me when I open up the refrigerator door. Alas, that is not the case. The end of strawberry season is upon us (here in Florida anyway) and on it’s heels I am starting to see other beautiful summer berries rolling in. To celebrate, this quick, easy, adult dessert marries my goodbye to strawberries and my hello to blackberries.

    IMG_0048During strawberry season, my favorite way to eat them is raw.  Hands down.  Sometimes I catch myself at the kitchen sink, popping them in my mouth as fast as I can rinse them off.  If I have a little time on my hands, perhaps on a lazy Sunday, I’ll go the extra step and roast them.  Just like roasting vegetables, roasting strawberries draws out the juices and caramelizes the sugars.  They become so tender that you can gently smash them onto a piece of bread instead of using jam.

    This past weekend, I wanted a little something sweet to enjoy with my tea, so I decided to fold some roasted strawberries into a cardamom-spiced quick bread.

    Vegan Beauty Regimen| Time To Check Your Oil

    by Haut Cosmetics on May 8, 2014

    oilcleansingClear, glowing, dewy-looking skin, free of blackheads, pimples, cysts, and other imperfections seems to be an elusive goal. The booming skin care industry would have you believe the same with their claims of the need to rid your skin of oil completely and apply burning chemicals in order to avoid these imperfections. Modern society has been so strongly influenced by these marketing claims that some find themselves washing the delicate and easily-inflamed tissue of their facial skin with “grease cutting” or “antibacterial” dish and hand soap only to find that their skin condition worsens. The anxiety that rises when yet another pimple flares up or another painful lump begins forming beneath the skin sends many into overdrive in attempt to counter the impending damage, but does it ever work? Does the panicked scrubbing, disinfecting, and drying ever work? Why is it that if something works for a few days, or if you get lucky, a few weeks, the long term brings the blemishes back? The cycle seems endless. It’s exhausting. It’s painful. It’s embarrassing. It’s expensive!

    earlgrey loaf cake title 1 copyI sometimes joke that I moved to the United Kingdom purely because I’m such a tea fanatic. I really am, though. Last time I moved, my mother was there helping me pack up everything; when we got to the kitchen, she put her foot down: ‘Who needs this much tea?!’ she said, aghast at the boxes, tins, bags and packets of loose leaf tea and tea bags. I had them in all flavours and formats. What can I say, I like variety!

    Wedding Series 2Last month we discussed the first few things to do when planning your wedding, such as pulling together your guest list and finding a venue. Today, I want to talk about two of my favourite parts: the theme and the stationary!

    While finding a wedding theme might seem daunting (it will dominate much of your wedding after all), it actually doesn’t have to be scary at all. I was very worried at the beginning, thinking that I had to have a specific and original theme that spoke volumes about my relationship with my fiancé, that was based on the perfect colour combination and that would have everyone talking for years to come. In actual fact, none of that matters. What matters is that you end up with a day designed in a way that makes you happy, feels comfortable and doesn’t make your hair fall out with stress.

    Vegan Recipe | Blueberry Crumble Coffee Cake

    by Alexandra Meyer on April 15, 2014

    Screen Shot 2014-04-07 at 5.10.39 PMAlex and I want to thank Vegan Housewives for featuring our recipe on their incredible blog. We feel honored to be a part of it. xoxo

    Spring is definitely on its way – finally!  Alex and I took full advantage of the sunshine and milder temperatures this morning and took our pup, Gizmo, on yet another six mile walk. Two days in a row for the little guy, he must think that he’s won the doggie lottery.

    Walking is inspiring. We planned out a lot of this month’s goals for Veganosity, and then talked about Alex’s college graduation in May. Life certainly moves at a quicker pace these days. It seems like the family moved her into her freshman dorm yesterday.

    Once the serious stuff was out of the way we reminisced about her childhood, and out of those memories she suddenly began craving the berry coffee cake that her dad used to make on Sunday mornings. We were at about the five mile point, and I was getting really hungry, so of course I told her to call home and ask her pops to get crackin’ on that cake. And, like the sweet man that he is, he happily obliged.
