Organizing Your Vegan Potluck

Posted by at 12:01 PM | Permalink | No Comments

Vegan potlucks are a wonderful way to enjoy great food and great company, but more importantly, they also provide a terrific opportunity to reach beyond our own circles and expose others to the vegan lifestyle. I have read studies that say the average American eats 96 animals a year. Just imagine, you can save 96 animals each and […]

I know it’s not proper to start a meal with sweets, but yummy desserts are always a big hit at vegan potlucks. For years, the two desserts that have consistently been the favorites at our vegan potlucks are Rice Krispies treats and fruit kebabs. Both of these delicious desserts also have the added benefit of being finger […]

A Lesson From the Eagle Outside My Window

Posted by at 6:50 AM | Permalink | Comments (7)

There is a bald eagle who hangs out in a tree outside my window. I can tell when the eagle is around because my cat, Lucy, makes unique “the eagle has landed” growling sounds from her hiding spot under the couch. The bald eagle is beautiful and majestic, but I cannot stand to watch him hunt the ducks who I have […]
