Common Questions and Comments - Vegan - What about insects? |

CQC: What about insects?

Common question:  What about insects?  There are really two sides to this question. The first:  A spider, for example, is gliding down your door jamb on a thread of silk.  What’s a vegan to do? Many people understand, on some level, why vegans and vegetarians don’t want to eat cows or chickens or pigs; but…

TCBY's Silk Vanilla Almond Frozen Yogurt |

TCBY’s Silk Vanilla Almond Frozen Yogurt

When I was a kid, hopping into the family car with my parents and making the short drive to the nearest TCBY was one of my favorite treats.  Stark, bright interior, maddeningly sweet smell.  I don’t even remember what I used to order (my money is on something vanilla with lots of sprinkles), but it…

Lemon & Cayenne Water |

Lemon & Cayenne Water >> A Natural Detox

These days, my mornings usually start with my new liquid addiction. Coffee?  Nope.  I can count on my fingers the number of cups I’ve ever had, with the last one being at least five or six years ago.  Tea?  Not that either.  I make a cup of tea every few months, but even then it…

Garden Grill Cafe | Wichita, Kansas

Last week, I took two days off work to travel with my husband to Wichita, Kansas.  He was in the area for business and I tagged along.  In the interest of simplifying and packing as little as possible for an overnight trip, I decided to leave my camera at home.  Bad idea, because once there,…

Top 10 of 2013 + GIVEAWAY (The Peanut Shop!)

One of my favorite things about the end of the year is the list-mania that takes place.  The top tens, the round-ups, the reflections of the previous year.  I can spend hours getting lost in such lists.  And, of course, I love creating my own list of the top The Vegan Crew posts, according to…

Oatmeal Toffee Cookies |

Oatmeal Toffee Cookies

Christmas and cookies, they just go together.  As a young child, every year I’d bake cookies for Santa in my Easy-Bake Oven with my dad.  After our Christmas Eve festivities, I’d pull on my Christmas pajamas and then join my dad in the kitchen, where I’d crawl onto the counter next to the oven.  We’d…
