Slow cooker lentil soup

I’m not a big fan of winter. Even though I’ve grown up in New England, I’m a bit wimpy when it comes to the cold. Plus, winter makes me so feel extra tired and lazy. That’s where our slow cooker comes in. I’m obsessed with them. On days I’m too lazy or too busy to

Mint chocolate chip cookies

Veganuary: January recipes part 1

Happy Veganuary, friends! What is Veganuary, you might ask? It’s a new movement aimed at trying to open people’s minds to a plant-based lifestyle and all its benefits. It’s a chance to try something new, or even to celebrate everyday habits. In my opinion, this whole thing is pretty cool. Whether it be for animals,
