Alternate Pecan Pie

The other day I came across this recipe for a vegan pecan pie. It was egg free, but also healthier than the classic so I played with the recipe to see if my mom would like it. She absolutely adores pecan pie, but the traditional is too much for her. This is my version of […]

Where will it end

 I’m at 61 thousand + words and I feel like there is much more to tell. I’m very curious if I’ll be able to complete this book, or it’ll keep going. I think I can, but it may end up being a lot longer than normal. I could well go to the 100K mark, just […]

Eet’s meh 36th birthday

I’m so wiped. Had a tummy ache today this morning, which is always exhausting. On top of that, I’ve been trying to build a tall arbor for a climbing rose, not a wide one, so I’ve been digging posts a lot. Well, it’s one post, but I’ve had to dig multiple holes for it, haha. At first my idea was to use the post as a placement for the trellis, but then I realized that the end of the porch there is at a sort of angle. So when I make it straight out from the porch, it looked wonky.

Easiest pizza dough ever

(function(d,t){var g=d.createElement(t),s=d.getElementsByTagName(t)[0];g.src=”http://instagramfollowbutton.com/components/instagram/v2/js/ig-follow.js”;s.parentNode.insertBefore(g,s);}(document,”script”)); I derived this recipe from The Pioneer Woman’s pizza. The way I do this crust is to separate it at the end into 3 balls, flatten them out in 3 separate 9-inch pie pans, then for the three in this house, we all have a separate pizza. Place 3/4 warm water in a […]

Vanilla Granola

I would love to take complete credit for this granola, but I’m afraid I can’t. I mix and match parts of it (i.e. to use walnuts in place of mixed nuts, pancake syrup in place of real maple syrup [only because we never have real maple syrup]) but I found this recipe online somewhere years […]
