Quick Mini Pizza


Finding one thing  I love so much that I drown myself in it until I’m near suffocation is pretty much always my modus operandi when it comes to work, relationships and food. Work until I want to cry? Sure! Love until I can’t breathe? Standard! Eat the exact same thing for two weeks and then never eat it again… Yep! Some might call this manic. I call it Tuesday.

What I’m saying is I’ve eaten pizza three out of my last four meals and I’m just not worried about it.

Homemade Vegan Nut Milk


What could be worse than pouring a bowl of cereal and discovering you’re out of milk? Or getting ready for a smoothie and finding someone (you) put an empty milk carton back in the fridge? The nerve.

Fret not. If you’re a drinker of alternative non-dairy milks and you’ve got nuts in the pantry and access to tap water, you can make your own nut milk in about 60 seconds. Seriously.

Caturday 8.24.13


It’s a lazy day over here at Caturday Headquarters. I’m packing to head to the beach–my first family vacation since… high school? Yeesh. Yeah, I think I can accurately say that all five of us have not been in the same place at the same time for that long. This will be a grand week indeed. And while I do that the cats are, not surprisingly, asleep.

BUT we do have a fairly major announcement to make. Guess who’s back…


Bistro La Bon – Charlotte NC


There are few things I love more than an unassuming diamond of a restaurant tucked away in the “rough” of a strip mall. Perhaps it’s the thrill of the hunt or perhaps it’s feeling like I know something others don’t, but I just can’t get enough.

I recently joined forces with Bistro La Bon, my favorite award-winning restaurant disguised as a Dollar Store, and I can’t wait to help them get the word out about their operation. Insiders will revolt, but I’m letting the world in on a little Plaza Midwood secret.


Vegan Peanut Butter Brownies


Both my boyfriend and roommate can’t eat chocolate and it’s totally cramping my style. Add to that the fact that I work from home and, thus, have no unsuspecting co-workers to coerce with brownies, and you see why I haven’t been baking with chocolate much as of late. Because you know what happens if I do? I have to eat the whole batch by myself. Life is so hard.

Don’t get me wrong; I eat a lot of chocolate. But it’s generally in the form of individual bars rationed for rational human beings rather than entire pans of brownies that must be consumed straight from the pan using a butter knife as a fork. (Not kidding.) A few nights ago I threw caution to the wind, returned to my chocolate roots and made myself some MF brownies. Related: Does anyone want some brownies?

Caturday 8.17.13


Well. It happened. I caught Ralph and Weaz running drugs out of our apartment. I knew it was only a matter of time.

I wasn’t looking for it. I was just going about my business putting away clothes when I found THIS in my sock drawer:


Chickpea Basil Rice


I’m a big fan of preparing a fat bowl of grains one day and eating it all week long. This is because I am a big opponent of doing dishes and if you make it all on one day you only have to wash that pot once. Laziness breeds ingenuity. That’s where the clap light came from. Also the Abtronic. “Don’t want to do crunches? Here! We will gently electrocute your abdominal muscles until they swell, thus giving the illusion of abs.”

Let’s just stick with saving meal prep time.
