Ah, Valentine’s Day. For the boyfriend and I, it’s not really a big deal. I’m not at all a flowers or jewellery kind of gal- so we kind of just eat food. It’s pretty damn romantic of us.

Thankfully, because of the AGE OF THE INTERNET (mostly just Tumblr and it’s weirdness), the perfect valentine exists for everyone. Especially couples who don’t fit into the hallmark card bubble. Here are some of the funniest valentines to give to your significant other without making a big awkward deal about it this Valentine’s day!

RECIPE: Easy ‘Campbell’s Style’ Vegetable Soup with Alphabet Noodles! (Vegan)

vegan vegetable alphabet soup campbells

I’ve been sick with a cold all week. Nasty sniffles, fuzzy head pressure, throat fire,  general grumpiness- you know the the symptoms. And while rolled up into a blanket burrito surrounded by a snowwy scene of discarded tissues, I craved all of the sick foods that comforted me as a child. Gingerale, banana popsicles, and Campbell’s Vegetable Soup. Unfortunately for me, Campbell’s Vegetable soup is not vegan friendly. It has a beef stock base. Wump womp. …But where most people would see stop signs, I saw opportunity. Opportunity to forge my own soupy path! 


So here it is- a quick and easy veggie soup with the same comfortability of a can of Campbells soup, but with some added goodies for the next time your feeling the general grumpiness take hold..

The VEGAN CUTS January Snack Box!

If you aren’t already familiar with Vegan Cuts, they’re a great resource for vegans abound. Laid out similarly to a ‘group buy’ type site, they offer an array of veggie-minded foods, treats, and other great stuff at a great price- but only for a short period of time. They also offer subscriptions in the way of two boxes- a beauty box, and the topic of today’s post…. the snack box.

The Vegan Cuts snack box delivers around the 17th every month at $19.95 per box. Shipping is free to the US, $8 to Canada, and $15 Worldwide. You can order one box at a time, or subscribe for several months at a time. Each box includes 7-10 vegan-friendly treats, snacks, and beverages, many of which are gluten free.

We recently received a subscription from family this Christmas- so I was excitedly counting down the days until our first snack box arrived! Here’s what we received:

RECIPE: Vegan Mushroom Gyoza!


This past summer I went on a road trip through niagara falls and to Cedar Point in Ohio. One of the most memorable parts of the trip occurred before we even crossed the border. We visited the Smokin Buddha in Port Colbourne, a small town near my family’s old Cottage on lake Erie that I spent entire summers as a child. As you’ve probably guessed it- the Smokin’ Buddha not only served vegan-friendly faire, but some of the most scrumptious Gyoza I’ve ever tasted.

I’d been craving vegan potstickers for a while, and finally I found some time to whip some up! These mushroom gyoza are bite-sized so they’re perfect for sharing, serving as an appetizer, or along with another Japanese style dish as an entree!
