There are a lot of things we have all been told that you shouldn’t do when you are upset…blogging may be one of them and today I am here to break that rule. Those who have followed my blog know I am not one to call people out, nor am I one who is quick to reply to the ever so common “I’m not vegan anymore” posts. Lucky for you, this isn’t a reply to a former vegan. This is a response to a couple of guys who I once admired greatly, who once prided themselves on spreading the vegan message in “Smalltown, USA” and who at one point actively avoided living in major cities to write a book that was going to reach the masses and prepare all of us for “Vegan World Domination”.

When I was asked to review this cookbook, I had no idea who Celine Steen was so naturally I was pretty curious about her and checked out her blog, cutely named Have Cake Will Travel. All I gotta say is WOOOOOOOOOOOOW!!!! Seriously…if you want to see vegan food-porn, go to that page! Don’t worry, I won’t be offended whatsoever if you stop right here to check it out 😉 And when you look at her intro page, she has been in the vegan cookbook scene for a while but this is her first solo cookbook and let me tell ya, I am beyond excited to share the recipe I am about to share with all of you!!!

Let me get something off my chest. I’ve been told that I am an awesome cook, but the deliciousness I create is often at the help of some amazing vegan chefs who create cookbooks that need to be in every kitchen. When I started this blog a few years ago, I struggled with this blog not becoming “another one of those vegan food blogs” and my goal from the start has been to normalize veganism- not by diet but also by lifestyle too. Staying on this path is hard because vegan food is incredible and whenever I create some kitchen magic worthy of sharing, I want to share it! I hope you like this recipe enough to share with others.
I decided to start this post with an amazing photo and also a memory to go along with it…All because it would be a crime if I didn’t tell you why I decided to post this recipe for The Easy Vegan Blog Tour! Continue reading
Follow along as we go camping for the first time!
One 4 year old
One 2 1/2 year old
One 1 year old
One big-ass tent!
We had pizza, corn on the cob, pancakes, hot dogs, s’mores and even a tofu scramble – all over the campfire!
I am still struggling to find a better word than “WOW!” to describe this book…This book wasn’t just created for vegan families but this was created for those who like to entertain or go to their local vegan potlucks and they want to provide a meal that is not only fuss free but also delicious. I’ll admit, casseroles have gotten a bad name over the years…Mine was an incident when I was seven or eight years old and my mother found a recipe for something called “Busy Day Casserole” and the meal was so nasty that I prayed the next time my mom decided to have a “busy day” she would just get take out instead! Well this book breaks the stereotype and now even in the vegan community, we have the best casseroles in town all thanks to the genius that is Julie Hasson! Continue reading
No one will ever tell you that blogging is easy…Blogging with kids running around the house and destroying things makes things even more complicated. Life gets distracting in my world and as a result, this blog has suffered. It shocks me that the last time I posted was when I was going to Veganmania in Chicago as a guest speaker on vegan parenting. While I had a lot of fun in Chicago and I would love to come back soon and hopefully do another Veganmania. Maybe next time I can bring my whole family. Speaking of whole family…Let me bring you up to speed on my life:
