Should we dress up our pets for Halloween?

Should we dress up our pets for Halloween? Dressing up on Halloween can be great fun for children and adults alike, but what about our furry friends? Just like people, dogs and cats are individuals, and no two animals are the same. For some pets, getting dressed up and the attention their costume brings, is

Halloween Themed Veggie Mini Pizzas

Halloween Themed Mini Veggie Pizzas

   

I shared this recipe on my Instagram a couple of weeks ago, and thought I’d share here as well in case you missed it. If you’re a regular reader, you probably recognize these as I did a plant-based/vegan of them a couple of years ago. This is the regular ol’ dairy cheese version (but vegan cheese works too!). I’ve also tweaked the recipe a bit since my original post. My kids and I love making these together, and they love eating. Best of us, they are ridiculously easy to create. 
Halloween Themed Mini Veggie Pizzas

Halloween Themed Veggie Mini Pizzas
Serves 6
INGREDIENTS 
6 english muffins, halved
3 cups shredded cheese (cheddar and mozzarella)
1 slice provolone or mozzarella
1 cup pizza sauce (the plain old jar kind works just fine)
black olives
green olives
green pepper


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Placed halved english muffins cut side up on a baking sheet. Top with pizza sauce until covered.  Top five of the english muffins with cheese shreds. On the remaining muffin, top with strips of the cheese slice, to look like a mummy. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until cheese is melted.  Use olives and green pepper slices to make jack-o-lanterns, spiders, mummies, and monsters!

Halloween Themed Mini Veggie Pizzas

These are perfect for Halloween parties (ya know, once the pandemic ends), lunch, dinner, or just a spooky snack.

Retiring this Space

WordPress has given me a new, very clunky editor that does not allow me to use this software the way I use it. I have been in contact with WordPress trying to get this issue resolved, but I am unable to.

I am in the process of getting a new site set up. For Premium content subscribers, this means that it may take some time for me to get everything squared away. If you have any questions, please use the contact form to contact me.

The new editor is design for people use use mobile devices to blog. And that’s not me.

The domain will still be up if you’re looking for older content, but new content will not appear at this site.

I was barely able to post this. LOL. It’s that bad.

I’ll update everyone with the new site when it gets established. I don’t know how long it will take. But I am working on it.

35 Timeless Halloween Costume Ideas

Classic Halloween Costume Ideas for Kids

Those of you who read here regularly are probably shaking your heads, because I do this post every. single. year. In my defense, I update it with new ideas each time. But even if I didn’t, I’d still share it, because I am a complete sucker for simple, timeless Halloween costumes. 

Over the past couple of years, my kids have started to choose costumes that are store bought, modern characters (and usually super low quality, but hey, they want what they want), but I will always appreciate the years that they enjoyed more old-fashioned costumes. This year, my daughter actually requested to be a witch (which was thrilling for me) for school. My son wants to be Spider-Man. But on Halloween, we’re doing our first ever family costume (I still can’t believe my husband agreed to it), and my classic costume loving heart is full, man. (I’ll reveal what it is on Instagram on the big day.)

A Vegetarian, Plant-Based, Delicious Frozen Food Grocery Haul

A Vegetarian, Plant-Based, Delicious Frozen Food Grocery Haul

This post is sponsored by ConAgra, Danone, Amy’s Kitchen, and Good Food Made Simple®. All opinions are my own.


You guys, I’m finally doing it: a grocery haul. I have been fascinated for years with people sharing their grocery hauls on social media and their blogs, and I decided it was about freaking time I did one as well. This isn’t your average grocery haul though. This is a very specific grocery haul that made me so happy I just couldn’t keep it to myself. 

As you know, I have been a vegetarian since I was fifteen year old. I share a lot of vegetarian and plant-based recipes here, but what I need to be sharing more often is that a lot of the time, I rely on good ol’ fashion frozen food, because, well, it’s way more convenient that having to try to whip up meals and desserts from scratch everyday. In the past, I’ve usually gone to specialty stores to find veggie and plant-based frozen meal favorites, but a few weeks ago, I discovered that Walmart has a plethora (yes, plethora) of them. From vegetarian and vegan to dairy-free to frozen goodies for those with specialty diets, Walmart has you covered (and at unbeatable prices!). Since I hit up Walmart frequently for, well, just about everything else, this made me extremely excited. And that’s where this haul began.


And now on to all of the goodness I got! 

A Vegetarian, Plant-Based, Delicious Frozen Food Grocery Haul

1. Amy’s Cheese Veggie Crust Pizza

I am a long time fan of Amy’s products, and Amy’s frozen pizzas are staples in our home. So I have been all sorts of excited to try Amy’s new Veggie Crust Pizza. Spoiler: it’s so, so good. Its crust is made from organic cauliflower, broccoli, and sweet potato, and it is topped with slow-simmered tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese. It’s vegetarian, gluten-free, nut-free, kosher, delicious, and only takes a few minutes to cook. So many wins!

2. Amy’s Mac & 3 Cheese with Cauliflower Bowl
This is genuinely the best gluten-free mac and cheese I’ve ever had. Yummy cauliflower is mixed with rice pasta and a delicious, flavorful three cheese sauce (cheddar, Monterey jack, and parmesan). It is ready in minutes and an absolute favorite of my little ones. I love that I can stock up at Walmart and keep a bunch in my freezer for the easiest weekday meal ever. 

3. Marie Callender’s Chick’n Pot Pie made with Gardein Chick’n

I can’t even put into words how excited I was to discover this at Walmart. Chicken pot pies were my favorite meal as a kid, but I hadn’t had one in many, many years, since before I went vegetarian. I’m a long time fan of Gardein products (so many delicious meat alternatives), but I had no idea this existed. Well, it did not disappoint, and I am thrilled to be reunited with my favorite comfort meal. Kudos to Marie Callender’s and Walmart!


4. Good Food Made Simple® Cauliflower Kung Pao

My husband loves Kung Pao spaghetti, so when I spotted this plant-based, gluten-free version by Good Food Made Simple at Walmart, I knew I had to get it. It turns out I love it just as much as he does. It’s sweet, spicy, and tangy all at once, and full of organic veggies and yummy rice noodles. So good.

5. Good Food Made Simple® French Toast

My kids love french toast for breakfast, so I was also excited to see that Walmart had these better-for-you version by Good Food Made Simple. They love the way both Oats & Honey and Oats & Ancient Grains taste, and I love that they’re simple, clean, and made with non-GMO ingredients.

6. Mocha Almond Fudge So Delicious® Ice Cream Bars  

I couldn’t leave dessert out of this amazing haul, right? Just like all of the other plant-based goodies I was so stoked to find right at Walmart, So Delicious® Ice Cream Bars have quickly become a favorite in our house. These bars are made with almond milk and rich fudge in a crunchy chocolate and almond shell. They’re also certified vegan and non-GMO verified. Any just like their name says, they really are so delicious.

I think I might have to do another veggie-themed grocery haul soon. Is that something you guys would want to see? In the meantime, head to your local Walmart (or use their online pick up or delivery services!), and bask in the glory that is their amazing selection of vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, and plant-based frozen goodies!
