A Very Merry Vegan Christmas

A Very Merry Vegan Christmas

How did a whole year go by without me noticing? Well, I did notice, I just couldn’t seem to make it less busy, even though I think how I spend my time should be a little bit more under my control. A lot of it I bring on myself with grandiose plans that don’t match up with the time available to me. Not recommending this way of functioning – definitely going to think about planning a bit better in the …

This Vegan’s Plant Powered Christmas Party is Over

It was a lot of work and a lot of fun. It is, as a vegan and a fair to middling cook and baker, my absolute pleasure to showcase delicious plant powered food for friends and family.

I want to wish everyone a wonderful holiday season however and with whomever you celebrate. I will be spending time with my treasured family, as well as reflecting on what my vegan and AR advocacy will look like in the coming year.

My website, which …

Well, it is a New Year and and new day and the second time in 2017 that I am sitting down as Vegan Annie (formerly Vegan Grammie Annie) to write an article for my little website about AR activism and all things vegan.

A plethora of flyers about street festivals and craft fairs come regularly in the mail and there are just too many to consider attending them all.

I do admit to loving Xmas and  all the pre-season folderol and sometimes …

Tradition is defined as:

The passing down of elements of a culture from generation to generation, especially by oral communication.

Man, if I had a nickel for every time I heard the word “tradition” around holiday time, multiplied by my days on this earth thus far, I would be rich!  Well, maybe not rich considering the cost of living and the peckish health of the Canadian dollar at this moment, but a little bit richer, monetarily speaking.  People, myself included, …

Sweet Potato rice – Plant Based and Vegan Goodness

Sweet Potato rice – Plant Based and Vegan Goodness

I am a fair to middling cook/baker and have been known on occasion to experiment, depending on what is in my cupboard and fridge at the time. When I feel like cooking, I usually make three of four dishes at a time so that I can enjoy the convenience of having on hand what my daughter lovingly used to refer to as “leftunders”.  This is especially true at holiday and special occasion time when I am putting together menus and …
