Today I’m thrilled to share a recipe from my friend Allyson Kramer’s new book, Sweet Eats for All. Anyone who knows Allyson knows that she’s a spectacular vegan and gluten-free baker (and cook in general!) with three bestselling cookbooks under her belt. And anyone who knows me knows that books full of delicious sweet treats suit me just fine!
Before I get to today’s post, I’m excited to tell you about the free live webinar series I’m offering–starting tonight! (Thursday, February 19, 2015). Based on reader questions, I’ll begin talking about candida and why it’s more than just sugar cravings; then move to other topics such as how to deal with cravings or stick with it for the long haul. If you think you might be dealing with candida or just want to cut refined sugar from your life, I hope you’ll join me! There will be a live Q&A at the end. If people enjoy the videos, I’ll continue them as a regular feature. Get more details and reserve your seat here.]
The hardest part about this vegan split pea soup is saying the name out loud three times (go on, try it. . . betcha can’t). Tongue-twisters aside, this was one of the most delicious soups the HH and I have ever had. And it is so EASY to make–woop woop!
I’ve made split pea soup exactly one time before this one–when I was in my early 20s and had just moved into my very first apartment on my own.

Are you a romantic? I’m pretty sure I’m what you’d call a “hopeless romantic.” Did I cry at Titanic? Let’s just say I felt responsible for at least 50% of all that gushing water that swept Jack away from Rose while I was watching that movie. Do I hoard save mementos from my former beaux? […][Continue reading…]
If you follow a whole-foods or traditional diet, you’ve probably eaten your fair share of lacto-fermented sauerkraut (in fact, it’s probably fair to guess that you’ve even made some from scratch, right?). Lacto-fermented sauerkraut–and other naturally fermented foods, like kimchi–are staples on most anti-candida diets, too. They’re bursting with healthy probiotics and taste great as […][Continue reading…]
Some of you are no doubt already familiar with powerhouse blogger, speaker, consultant and vegan advocate JL Fields. On January 29, 2015 at 8:30 PM EST (5:30 PM PST), JL and I will have a lively chat about our blogs, how we became book authors, how that morphed into our current businesses (plus all that […][Continue reading…]
[photo: Nicole Axworthy] Okay, before I even begin today’s post, let me state unequivocally: I am not going to make any references whatsoever to the Super Bowl. (Oh, wait, I guess technically, I did just that. Harumph). As many of you long-time readers know, the HH and I have virtually no interest in football, or […][Continue reading…]
It may have taken a while, but I’ve finally come to embrace my inner nerd and display her proudly (rather than try to quash her idiosyncracies, as I did when younger). Maybe it’s related to the success of The Big Bang Theory, which makes nerdiness cool; maybe it’s the effects of menopause (after which you […][Continue reading…]
You likely already know that my diet is 100% dairy-free (a vegan diet is, by default, free of dairy). Though I grew up with milk as the primary beverage in our house, had cottage cheese for breakfast, ate cheese-laden pizza for dinner and scooped ice cream for dessert, once I switched to a vegan diet, […][Continue reading…]
If you follow me on Instagram or even just take a quick look through this blog, you’ll quickly surmise that I must love pancakes. (You’d also surmise that my tablecloth is made of newsprint. . . but that’s another story). Indeed, I am a huge fan of pancakes. I likely eat them at least once […][Continue reading…]
