One of my struggles, as a new vegan, is what to bring to potlucks and parties.

I was also never a lover of deli meats in… Continue reading Vegan Sandwiches – The Struggle Is Real
In case you don't live on a rock in the middle of the ocean, like I do, you might be under the impression that it is, in fact, spring. Well, the view from my window would beg to differ.
