Happy Meatless Monday. I have a recipe to share that is going to change the way you enjoy peanut butter cookies forever.  My friend Katie made these cookies she found on TreeHugger.com and they were  insane enough to share with me.

12/16 Apple Beet Ginger Juice

Happy Meatless Monday. On our most recent trip to Florida I got re-addicted to fresh juice. There was the most bizarre cafe/store/gas station by our hotel that was cranking out some serious fresh juices.  My new fave flavor combination is apple, beet, ginger. It is sweet and earthy with a slightly aggressive ginger bite. Now [...]
