Tip of the Week: Almond Pulp

First of all, almond pulp is the result of making homemade almond milk. After soaking and blending almonds with water, the mixture is strained through a nut milk bag, a fine chinois, layers of cheesecloth, or cloth towels.

Weekly Update: May 10-16

This week has been all over the place! It has been good, but it has been really interesting. Business hasn’t been overly busy, but for once that is actually working in my favor. Last week, I left off with my Thursday dinners. I got out of town for Mother’s Day over the weekend. Monday was…

Tip of the Week: Patience is Key

A lot of times I have a problem with being patient in the kitchen. More often than not, I really just want to get a meal done as quick as possible. I will cook things faster on high heat, or cut vegetables smaller so they cook quicker. Most of the time, I don’t have much…

Product Review: Plant Snacks–Beet with Vegan Goat Cheese

Over the past two months, I have heard a lot of buzz about these beet with vegan goat cheese chips. During the Natural Products Expo West, back in March a lot of people were posting about them on social media. I didn’t think that they would make it to Casper this quickly, but to my…

Tip of the Week: Go Bananas!

This tip is very simple, but it always amazes me how many people don’t know what to do with brown bananas. During this time of year, I always find myself eating a lot of bananas. The problem is that I can never seem to buy the right amount. If I only buy a few, I…

Product Review: NuGo Dark Chocolate Chip

This product review is inspired by my crazy busy life. As many people know, I am constantly on the go! My average day begins at 4 or 5 AM and doesn’t end until around 9 or 10 PM. Most days I am running around shopping, cooking, or literally running. No matter how much I eat…

Weekly Update: April 26 – May 2

How has another month already gone by?!? I can’t believe how fast this year is going by. It has been an eventful year, but I guess the saying “time flies when you’re having fun” is really true. I have enjoyed working more in the last four months than I have in my entire life! Anyway,…

Tip of the Week: Sleep on it

Over the years, I’ve always heard about people soaking their beans overnight. I actually wrote my very first weekly tip about the benefits of soaking beans. I seem to have a problem of little space and time, though. This tip is simple, but it is my solution to this problem. For starters, I only have two large…

Discovering Vegans in Wyoming: Lisa Powell

It is that time again. Each month, I have the privilege of featuring the story of one of the many unique vegans living here in the Cowboy State! This month I am sharing Lisa Powell’s journey through veganism. Her story is interesting because she hadn’t met another vegan in person until we got together. Situations…

Product Review: Follow Your Heart Sour Cream

Another new product spotted in the refrigerator section of a local Casper grocery store! Actually, I am not sure how long this one has been available, but it was my first time coming across it! I found this at Albertson’s and I was really excited. I didn’t even know that Follow Your Heart made a…

Weekly Update: April 19-25

It has been such an odd week. I haven’t really been busy with dinners, but I have had a lot more dessert orders than I have had in the last month! It has actually been kind of nice. Until the last week, I hadn’t had a specific dessert order in a while, so has been…
