Sweet and Savory Rice Cake with a Dippy Egg

Somehow, I managed to keep posting while on vacation, but totally let it slip once I’m back, whooops! I always seem to come back from a trip extra exhausted and needing a vacation from my vacation.

Bananas Foster Slow Cooker Oatmeal

Do you love a lazy weekend?  My favorite thing to do when I don’t have to work is literally nothing.  I briefly left my house to go to the bar, but mostly sat around, played silly games on my computer, did some baking, and watched Star Trek with a beer or two.  Aside from the […]

Vegan Banana French Toast

Breakfast has always been my favorite meal of the day.  Lazy weekend breakfasts are even better, especially when they’re carby and covered in syrup.  While pancakes will probably be my favorite forever, sometimes I just really want french toast.  I don’t often keep eggs in the house, so most of my french toast recipes end […]
