Happy weekend, all. I want to thank you for taking time to read and consider Emilia’s awesome green recovery story. If you haven’t seen it yet, I do recommend checking it out; it’s incredibly powerful ....more

The Heart-Centered Path: Emilia’s Green Recovery Story

Hey friends. So happy you’re enjoying the Pacific Merchants giveaway so far — keep the entries coming! I’m sending you off into the weekend with one of the most powerful, harrowing, and touching green recovery narratives I’ve ever shared here on CR ....more

Acacia Wood Serveware Giveaway from Pacific Merchants

I’m so excited about today’s giveaway! Months ago, the lovely folks at Pacific Merchants Trading Company reached out to me, asking if I’d like to sample some of their products. To give you some background,...more

My Vegan Thanksgiving Menu, 2014

I should probably call this my *dream* menu, because, no matter how badly I might wish to, I won’t be able to prepare each and every single one of the delectable dishes I’ve rounded up for Thanksgiving this year. That said, here...more

This is exactly what you think it is: a big, hearty, generous, and delicious holiday salad. It features lemon and pepper massaged kale, a scrumptious broccoli, apple, and cranberry slaw, and–best of all–some super versatile lentil, walnut and sage crumbles. They are reminiscent of crumbled sausage, and every bit as versatile: you can stir them into pasta, serve them as an appetizer, or mix them into any salad of your choice ....more
