Oh She Glows Every Day Cookbook Review

oh she glows

I love the Oh She Glows cookbook. And when I heard Angela Liddon was coming out with another one, I was so excited! I mean, I can honestly say there was not a single recipe that I made from her first book that I did not like. And come on guys, it’s a WHOLE BOOK […]

No Meat Athlete Cookbook Review

It’s no secret that my husband and I don’t eat a lot of meat. We’re flexatarian at best, eating meat if we visit a friend’s house or go out for dinner…but for the most part at home, we don’t eat meat. Eggs and fish are fair game so we certainly get our share of protein, […]

Thug Kitchen ‘Party Grub’ Cookbook Review

By now, you’ve definitely heard of Thug Kitchen. If you haven’t, you MUST check them out. Not only are they hilarious to read (without your children around), they are also incredibly talented at making delicious delicious (yes, TWO TIMES delicious) food. Oh-and did I mention it’s all vegan? I’m mostly plant-based but I probably forgot […]
