Divinely Decadent Avocado Pudding

Divinely Decadent Avocado Pudding

Sometimes I need to force my way through ease, like a bungling klutz, alcoholic binging set aside. When my body seizes up from the winter’s brazen rawness, I seek comfort.

As a team, we collaborated on and cooked a succulent vegetarian […]

Yummy Vegetarian Burritos!

When staying in Kitty HAwk, North Carolina, our driveway hosts offered to make us a lovely dinner. That night, with a sly grin on his face, David whipped out his handy dandy favourite cookbook, swearing by the recipes found in ‘The Moosewood Restaurant Low Fat Favourites’ cookbook. The Sweet Potatoes Black Bean Burritos were some […]
