The recipe I want to share with you today was inspired by one that I found via everyone’s favorite time-suck, Pinterest. I took one basic idea from the original recipe that I had not previously thought of- infusing my own spicy Asian oil for the sauce! Brilliant, I say. Read more.

I have recently become enamored with rice paper. Admittedly, the strange and sticky papers seemed too intimidating to me for a while, and I hesitated trying them for far too long. Now that I have, I can’t stop making fresh rolls! Read more.

I know I’m not alone in my obsession with Pinterest. I have always been an internet surfer, and had 50+ pages bookmarked in my browser. Whenever I saw something I liked, I bookmarked the page, with the best intention of going back there someday and baking that cake, emulating that outfit, or trying my hand at _______ (fill in the blank).
You can guess the outcome; a crowded bookmarks folder and nothing to show for it.
This is why I love Pinterest. I can keep all the wonderful ideas I find in one easy-to-access, well organized place.
I’m not awesome at coming up with things to do with my toddler and preschooler. We spend a lot of time reading together, and both boys love helping me in the kitchen, but I’m not fantastically creative when it comes to activities. The internet introduced me to the idea of a sensory bin, and I absolutely love them!
To make a sensory bin, you pick a theme and then collect odds and ends which relate to that theme. I made one with a “spring time” theme, and was amazed at the educational value of such a toy and activity. I simply raided the dollar store for things I thought would look cute in a spring time bin. With supervision, my boys played with it for much longer than I would have thought, and my three year old really enjoyed learning about how bees take nectar from flowers, assist in pollination, and make honey.
While we love to dream of the warmth, sunshine, and outdoor activities of spring; it is unfortunately still very cold and bleak here, so a warm and comforting breakfast is most definitely called for.
I slightly adapted the banana bread recipe from Chocolate Covered Katie to make it gluten free. This bread is so good, seriously. It does everything banana bread should do; golden brown on the outside, gooey, warm and sweet on the inside. And it’s super easy!
Vegan Gluten Free Banana Bread
- 1 C. Oat Flour
- 1 C. Bob’s Gluten Free flour blend
- 1 t. baking soda
- 1/2 t. cinnamon
- 3/4 t. baking powder
- 3/4 t. salt
- 1/3 C. Non-dairy milk
- 1 and 1/2 t. vanilla extract
- 1/2 C. and 1 T. agave or maple syrup
- 1 and 1/2 T. lemon juice
- 2 c tightly-packed, mashed banana – I use 4 large bananas
Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients and mix well. In another large bowl, combine wet (all remaining) ingredients. Add to dry ingredients and stir until incorporated. Spray a loaf pan with oil, pour in the batter. Bake for 50 minutes.
I can’t believe it’s vegan!

You may think it would be difficult to enjoy a day traditionally centered around eating turkey as a vegan. I am here to tell you I’ve never had a more delicious and healthily satisfying Thanksgiving dinner. Read more.
