Vegetarian Hawaiian Sloppy Joes For Labor Day Deliciousness

The first time that I tried to make sloppy joe’s vegetarian style, I used tofu. I thought that I could just stir fry the tofu the way that I used to brown ground beef. That batch of “sloppy joe’s” was soooo wrong. I had no idea how to use tofu, so I hadn’t properly pressed […]


A Little Further Down The Rabbit Hole: Part 7

To think that I thought I would only be able to do this story in 2 or 3 parts…I must have been crazy to think that all of the medical issues that I have dealt with could only be described in 2 or 3 parts. That last part was quite a story though huh? It […]

Make Your Own Non-Toxic Oven Clay

When Silas was about 4 or 5 months old, his first Father’s Day rolled around and I wanted to do something special for Andy. (This was spring of 2010) After a lot of contemplation on what I could do that would be an awesome keepsake forever, I thought about all of the times that my […]

A Little Further Down The Rabbit Hole: Part 6

You’ll have to forgive me, (I am ALWAYS full of excuses, aren’t I?) I have been putting off writing this one for the last week because I have been reading, planning, and putting together my first home-school curriculum. Mind you, it’s for a soon to be 3 year old, preschool curriculum, but it’s busy work! […]

Mini Potato Skins Stuffed With Avocado Salsa

I got this recipe from Vegetarian Times (Pg. 52, August/September 2012) magazine. It’s actually a Chloe Coscarelli recipe also in her new cookbook, “Chloe’s Kitchen”. This was soooo good. We just ate it tonight and I am so stuffed just from eating these alone. I didn’t even end up making a side dish as this […]

A Little Further Down The Rabbit Hole: Part 5

I suppose that I was rushing through the last post of this story. That surgery was probably the one that I blocked the most memories out from because of the pain that I experienced right afterwards. I must add an addendum to the people that came to visit me for Thanksgiving Star Wars in the […]

Green Cleaning in the Living Room

Between writing about myself for you guys (because you all seem to be more interested in my personal story, rather than any of my other articles) and watching the Olympics, I have been a little slacker when it comes to my next installment of Green Living. It’s a day late, but you guys didn’t want […]

Spinach & Feta Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms aka AWESOMENESS!

I just LOVE, love, LOVE Portobello mushrooms. Well really, I just love mushrooms in general. When I order a pizza and there is a one topping deal, you guessed it, I order with mushrooms. Recently, it has been discovered the nutritional power of mushrooms. Most people thought that they were just nutritionless fillers for your […]

A Little Further Down The Rabbit Hole: Part 4

It has been getting more and more difficult to write this story. For so long I have said that I wanted to write my memoirs, but I just didn’t have the guts to actually go through with it. Until recently, I had no idea that I was avoiding certain emotions that are bonded to these […]
