Complete Knife Skills


 If you have read my blog for any amount of time you know I have a passion for two things sewing and cooking. One skill they have in common is accuracy.  Have you noticed I rarely post pictures of my veggies cut up? Well, that’s because my knife skills are lacking! Ummm, actually lacking is […]

DIY Egg Replacer for Vegan Baking – Flax Seed ‘Eggs’

DIY egg replacer for vegan baking using flax seeds

I have been really itching to bake lately, but after my last failed attempt at baking cookies using powdered egg replacer, I have been sort of avoiding it (unless the recipe is totally egg-free in the first place, like this yummy vegan coffee cake). I was SO excited to find a recipe for an egg […]

Delicious Vegan Coffee Cake

Vegan coffee cake recipe - with delicious crumbled topping

A friend of mine used to bake for a small coffee shop, and she shared this coffee cake recipe with me.

Broccoli Soup Recipe

I have made this recipe four times now and it has come out delicious each time. The last three times I have increased the broth and decreased the milk; no one noticed. I like my broccoli soup chunky so I don’t blend all of it. Leftovers freeze and reheat without any problems. Ingredients: 2 tsp olive oil 1/2 medium onion, finely […]

I started working part-time last week and the first thing I knew I had to take care of was meals. My schedule will overlap when I normally make dinner sometimes so I will be relying on my crock-pot and the timer on my oven a lot […]
