Plant Based Veggie and Sausage Pasta Sauce

Plant Based Veggie and Sausage Pasta Sauce

You know the old saying that everybody is Irish on St-Paddy’s Day. Everyone loves the idea of the luck of the Irish, leprechauns and the pot of gold, four leaf clovers and let’s not forget green beer and green milk (plant based of course).

Cruelty Free and Vegan Pedicures

Cruelty Free and Vegan Pedicures

I have avoided writing about this topic because, to tell you the truth, I find it very confusing. When I first started to tell people that I was vegan, I was  talking mainly about my food intake.

ONE WEDDING, ONE ANKLE SPRAIN AND SEVERAL CHATS ABOUT VEGANISM!

Good Day,

Late, last summer we went to British Columbia to attend the wedding of my nephew and his beautiful bride. It was supposed to be a wonderful time, and it was, but it certainly didn’t start out that way.
Pretty tables at the wedding!

Family lore has it that at every big, family function, Anne (that would be me) will either arrive with or manage to acquire during said event, some manner of sprained ankle. Now, I will admit that has happened a time or …
