Back to School PB&J Bars

Well, here we are. Michael and I both started school last week. It looks pretty different for both of us. It looks pretty different than it ever has. I’m teaching four courses via online platforms, some with a live video component, some without. Michael is 

Vegan S’mores #aquafaba

Vegan S’mores #aquafaba

You know what I love about vegan cooking? Everyone can eat it. Most of you out there probably think the opposite of Vegan cooking. It’s exclusionary. You can’t eat any cheese, milk or butter? No meat? That rules out most people, right? Not really. If

Every fall, my son and I have an annual tradition. We drive out to Richmond Country Farms and go to the pumpkin patch. We gear ourselves up with boots (it gets super mucky out there!), take the little hay ride (and sing songs) out to
