Vegan Crepe Recipe + Vegg Giveaway

I had a chance to check out Vegg, the plant-based egg yolk replacer that’s been simultaneously sweeping and weirding out the vegan community. Yes, there are lots of whole food options for egg replacement in your recipes (click here to download my handy egg &...

Favorite Holiday Recipes + A Pretty Giveaway

It seems I’ve developed somewhat of a reputation for being a Grinch. Just because I hate everything about the holidays doesn’t mean I don’t want you guys to have a good time! So, not only have I rounded up all of my favorite holiday recipes, but...

Teno’s Good Morning Apple Muffins & A Challenge Check In

Today is day 21 of the 28 Day Healthy Eating Challenge and I can honestly say this experience has changed the way the Slaters eat for good. Not only that, but I currently have two other sets of friends officially starting their challenges this week and I’m sure...

Heart of Steel Cut Oat Bars

Are you looking for a breakfast bar fit for the sons of Odin? Well look no further, my brothers and sisters of metal, for I have clashed swords with our enemies fat and cholesterol and emerged victorious, with a heart of steel cut oats. This healthy, hearty...

Eternal Pizza Party Cupcakes + A Seibei Giveaway

I haven’t made a cupcake in a long time. Maybe I was feeling a little typecast as “the cupcake blogger.” Lately I’ve been making doughnuts, brownies and whoopie pies galore… but very, very few cupcakes. So when my friend David from Seibei...

Teno’s Snow Day Muffins

So far in Chicago we’ve gotten about 20 inches of snow and it’s still coming down. The trains aren’t running and our car is buried so we had ourselves a snow day. Teno was quite upset that I still had to do some work even though I was at home so I...

Honey Lime Donuts

Yesterday it was so hot the thought of eating anything besides cold, fresh fruit made me want to lie on the bathroom floor and cry. I realize it’s August in the Midwest, and I am normally the first one to say, “Shut up you baby!” when people complain...

Crouching Corn Bread, Hidden Broccoli

I think most parents are convinced, at least for a short while, that their toddlers are going to starve. How on Earth could a growing body possibly survive on little more than juice boxes and goldfish crackers? Tony and I do everything we can to introduce Teno to...

Vegan Kitchen Sink Muffins

Every baker has found him/herself with awkward amounts of ingredients left over. A 1/4 cup of mini chocolate chips, a 1/2 cup of coconut, a handful of pecans… no one wants to throw this stuff away because it’s expensive, but how do you use it up in...

Vegan Berry Chai Muffins

Today was an unseasonably warm 56 degree day in Chicago – the sun was shining, the snow melted away revealing three months worth of dog crap and garbage strewn about my neighborhood, and white people everywhere were prematurely wearing shorts. It was too wet to...
