The Vegan Street Fair was Fantastic!
We got home from VSF yesterday, and what an adventure it was. Ready for a long post?
In the month leading up to the fair, we were simply busy busy every single day. In addition to the VSF items, we updates all three websites, created new flavors, started new consulting projects, and more. However, the final week before the fair was simply crazy. We were working 20 hour days on average, and boy were we tired. Read More
A Little Bit of Shopping
Just wanted to share a few things that I saw recently at the store. I did purchase the cassava sweetener to mess around with it when I have a little extra time. I’m very pleased with the ingredients listed on the Jovial products, but they do contain corn. Since we have other mixes that I’ve put together without corn, we won’t be trying this product; mainly because, well, corn.
We’ve been using the Tiger Nut Flour (NOT a nut, a tuber) for a while now, but the Pamela’s is a new product I hadn’t seen before. I’m hoping someone out there will find this useful because I didn’t purchase it since The Papa has a coconut allergy.
Happy shopping everyone!
Grapes are Growing, and Here are Some Cupcakes
The kids are really excited to see the grapes in our backyard doing so well. It’s nothing short of a miracle considering how bad we all are at gardening. I have to admit, it’s fallen off of my ever-growing list of things to do. These grapes didn’t let our poor treatment stop them from growing, and that’s just way cool. Also, cupcakes, because, well, cupcakes. It’s one of the new things I’m working on for the bakeshop at freeandfriendlyfoods.com.
Cupcakes and Cinnamon Rolls
Since I’m the type that tries to keep things honest and upfront, I want to take another moment so share some things that didn’t turn out so well. The items are in the try again pile.
I’ve been trying to perfect white cake, and The Papa insists that it’s the perfect corn free cornbread. These are some variations that I tried to make, in an effort to reduce the corn bread taste. It didn’t work. I’m still kind of upset about this. It’s white cake… white cake (that looks yellow). Read More
The Organic House Party was a Ton of Fun
The house party in Montera was great this past weekend. We had the opportunity to meet many new people, who have really great businesses. One of the Hostesses was Petalyn, who has a business called Heart Fueled. The other, Patty, sells Neal’s Yard Organic skin care products. Kid Four was with me, and she even had a facial! Two other ladies who were there were showing off their Tower Gardens and Juice Plus programs.
It was simply good fun, and I look forward to being part of their next event!
