Fast and Easy Vegan Alfredo
I have a funny story about Alfredo, well actually its not so much a story but a few sentences….one of my good friends was telling me how much he enjoyed Alfredo sauce. He happens to live in Spain and I guess they don’t sell pre-made Alfredo sauce in the grocery store there. So when he came to the U.S. and found that you could buy it already canned and ready to heat and pour on pasta,...

I Want a Girl with Short Shorts and a Long Jacket
I was inspired by the Cake song Short Skirt/Long jacket… I want a girl with a mind like a diamond I want a girl who knows what’s best I want a girl with shoes that cut And eyes that burn like cigarettes I want a girl with the right allocations Who’s fast, and thorough, and sharp as a tack She’s playing with her jewelry She’s putting up her hair ...
The Latest Pair of Shoes I Bedazzled
Easter Egg Hunt, a month too late!
Honestly, now that I’m looking at this outfit, it looks like I’m about to go easter egg hunting. My purse even looks like the little wicker baskets I used to carry with me while I was eagerly hunting for eggs! I know this is a long way off, but next Easter I want to have an adult Easter egg hunt and use those plastic eggs and fill them with delicious vodka shots. Every time you find an...
Vegan Caesar Salad (the best Caesar dressing I've...
All I can say is wow. I found this recipe for Caesar dressing on one of my favorite vegan recipe websites Post Punk Kitchen, it is the best Caesar dressing I’ve ever tasted, vegan or non-vegan. I highly recommend you try it. The croutons are home-made as well, my own recipe ;-) Croutons: 4 slices of bread, I used sourdough rye 3 tablespoons olive oil 1 teaspoon garlic powder ...

Street Style: Community Garden
I came across this community garden today on the Portland State campus. Im thinking about starting a mini garden out on my balcony. Who knows….if I can keep some plants alive maybe the next step is children! Hah, just kidding… Anyway, here’s what I was wearing… The lady at the coffee shop today told me I look “well put together.” I then proceeded in tipping...
No Need for Prozac
Its Friday! And I can’t think of a better reason for a margarita…This is a very easy and delicious marg that I make for parties and it’s always a hit! I tend to like my margaritas like I like my men- very hot and spicy, so if you have a low tolerance to heat I would add less cayenne pepper to this drink. Having it really spicy also keeps me from drinking it too fast, which I tend to...
These Shoes are Gonna Kill Me.
I’ve had five near death experiences in these new Jeffrey Campbells so far…it must be the four inch platforms. I’m pretty good at walking in heels, but these heels have made me their bitch.

Cant get out of winter
I’m jealous of all those people who live in places where they can wear cute Spring clothes.
Healthy Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Cookies
I dare you not to eat the whole batch at once. These are the most delicious little badasses I’ve ever eaten. I usually don’t consider any cookie healthy, but they are definitely a hell of a lot healthier than normal cookies since they don’t have any added sugar, eggs or butter, and have very little flour. I tend to like my cookies a little less sweet, so you can can add more maple syrup if...
Bitchin' Brussels Sprouts
Do you hate Brussels sprouts? Long ago, I used to hate them too, but only because a societal stigma against them lurked in my sub consciousness and told me to hate them ;-). I promise you will LOVE them after trying this recipe. Brussels Sprouts are one of the most nutritious veggies out there, not to mention they are PACKED with fiber…the porcelain God awaits. Ingredients: 1 lb...
