New Breakfast Recipe: Pumpkin-Carrot Pancakes

Hi all! Phew, the past couple days have been quite hectic over here: I’ve planned on publishing today’s post earlier in the week, but on Tuesday our landlady found out that the wiring in the house we’re renting from her has gotten pretty bad, so she turned the power off in the house and asked us to spend the night in a hotel.

Well, that recently happened to me: I recently started a new job, got lots of new opportunities for my blog (the new Everyday Heroes series taking off was awesome!), continued to explore our new surroundings in the Northwest Washington and almost got used to this new rhythm of life – and in the meantime, completely forgot that it's been over a year since I ditched all animal-derived foods and went vegan!All is not lost, so I’m going to celebrate my belated Veganniversary (yes, that’s a real word) today!
