Let's Chat Rothy's


Three fave improvements in the 'vegan scene' in the past five years. One, vegan cheese. I mean, there are SO many options these days. Two, vegan ice cream. Same thing. And so many mainstream brands now have vegan options. And three, vegan shoes!!

I spent many early vegan years feeling shoe shopping deprived. I wandered the shoe section at Bloomingdales or wherever and every single boot or heel was made from leather. I left, with empty arms and a sad face. Shoes are overrated anyways, right? But flash forward to today, I proudly have an over-stuffed vegan shoe closet and a big smile on my face when I look down at happy feet! From boots and heels to ballet flats and loafers, vegan shoes are diverse and sophisticated these days. I'll include a list of my favorite vegan shoe brands ahead, but....

Beer Brat Salad


Hope you all had a happy, chill, fun long holiday weekend! My cooking schedule has been filled with easy, hearty breakfasts followed by smoothie or sandwich/toast lunches and either summer-y dining out or an easy dinner. Lots of big salads to match the warmer weather and mood to not want to turn on my oven unless I'm baking cookies.

Well this plant-based Avocado Candied Nut Beer Brat Salad fits very nicely into that schedule. I have made this salad about three times now because I love it so much! And there are plenty of ways to tweak the ingredients. But really the special ingredients are those quick candied nuts and the beer brats.

Cowgirl Baked Beans


New fave bean recipe right here. This recipe for my Cowgirl Baked Beans was inspired by my love of traditional baked beans.
