Vegan Oatmeal Cookies-2

I had a terrible day Friday.  I got a speeding ticket while driving to a gyno appointment.  So lame.  I was going 10mph over the speed limit on the freeway.  You know, just moving with the flow of traffic.  There were 3 cars ahead of me and 2 cars behind me going the exact same speed.  I thought I was going to make it through the whole ordeal without crying…that didn’t happen.  I’ve only been pulled over one other time.  I was 18 and I rolled through a stop sign in my neighborhood.  That cop was awesome.  I was balling because that’s how I handle things and he was like, “If you keep crying I’ll give you a ticket!”  He let me go without a ticket even though I was crying my eyes out.

Andrew got home from work Friday and then I had a cry fest because sometimes I just can’t even deal.  And then I made cookies.  And then stir-fry.  It was all backwards but it worked.

So obvi Friday was a cookie day.  And now Monday is a cookie day.  Yay us.

Meal Planning-3

How I Meal Plan.

I get the most emails with questions about how I meal plan.  I figured it’d be fun to do a post on my weekly eating process: from meal planning to grocery shopping to recipe making. Food is my hobby.  So I really don’t mind spending money on it.  Plus, food is important.  So again I…

Baked Apples Stuffed with Oatmeal Cookie Granola

I found fall… …and I found it in baked apples topped with crumbly oatmeal cookie granola and maple cream cheese frosting<3. It started raining outside while I was eating these and I was so cozy eating my cinnamon baked apple that I almost (almost) forgot it was 90 degrees outside.  So baked apples, I never…

This is the ultimate slumber party girl food. Why don’t grown ups have more slumber parties? I would have to say that it is my least favorite part of being an adult…or 24. Whatever you are considered to be at 24. The best part of being an adult is getting to decide what you want…

Zucchini Coconut Rice with Crispy Cheese & Chickpeas

A new very favorite thing. Well, not really new because I’ve been eating fried cheese all my life.  That would be thanks to my mom’s mom who used to serve us fried cheese toast for breakfast.  Just toast cooked in a pan with cheese until the cheese melts into every little bit of the toast…
