Vegan/Vegetarian Recipes

All of the recipes I share are vegetarian, most are vegan, and many are gluten-free. All of them are healthy and delicious and perfect for feeding a hungry family or just yourself!

I have been vegetarian for 30 years and over the past several months I have been transitioning to a more plant-based vegan diet. Many of my recipes are time-tested and kid approved (I am also a mother of two boys), so you know they are good – and easy to make!

I am also on a weight loss journey, so many of my recipes are perfect for losing pounds and inches by adding more plant-based foods to your diet, without feeling deprived of all the foods you know and love.


Ever since my early 20s, I have looked for ways to live a lifestyle that has minimal impact on our planet and our environment, with maximum benefit for my health, body, and soul.

I am sure you have heard the expression “Reduce, Re-use, Recycle (and Respect)”? That’s my mantra! I am always looking for ways to Reduce waste, Re-use what I can, and Recycle what I can’t use anymore. I also Respect my environment, the planet, and all of those around me. I will share my tips and tricks for practicing the 4 R’s.

I also love gardening, spending time outdoors with my family, and living a healthy life that nurtures my body and spirit. I will show you ways that you can enjoy this kind of life too!

Archaeology and Going Back to College

I recently started a career as a professional archaeologist and I just received my MA in Anthropology in 2017. And I am 49 years old! 

I started a B.A. degree program at the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs when I was 40 years old and then went on to get my M.A. degree from the University of Colorado, Denver. 

So I know a thing or two about going back to college at an “non-traditional” age, and how to get scholarships, grants, work-study and intern positions, and more!

I can also provide you with strategies for staying organized, creating good study habits, choosing and applying for the school that is right for you, and how to balance your academic life with work and family life.

I got you covered! I did it all while raising two boys as a single mom!

I also have a passion for archaeology and I will share all my archaeological adventures and tidbits with you! If you are interested in becoming an archaeologist, I will share what it is really like, and how you can best succeed in the field.
