Healthy, gluten free, potato free latke recipe for Hanukkah.
Hanukkah is a day away and that means only one thing: fried food! Lots of it. Yum. I love a good crispy latke, or just about anything fried for that matter.

Simple and creamy vegan butternut squash soup to warm your belly.
This vegan recipe for butternut squash soup is great for a cold winter’s day. We’ve had a lot of those lately. I haven’t worn anything outside but snow boots in 2007.
We just had our 7th snow storm in seven weeks. I don’t mind, I was raised in California where we pretended that a heavy frost was “snow.” Here’s some good grub for staying warm.
