The vegan egg

In my house we have egg allergies so we can’t always cook with eggs, and this little recipe has made my life so much easier.  It allows me to grab almost any baking recipe and just substitute the eggs for flax seed eggs.

I have used the baking flax seed egg for pancakes, chocolate cake, strawberry cake, gluten free cakes, banana bread, pumpkin, sunflower and chocolate chip cookies, gluten free muffins, etc. And the cooking flax seed egg for meatloaf, veggieloaf, meatballs and veggieballs.

So if you ran out of eggs, don’t want the cholesterol in your life or have an egg allergy, this is your holy grail!

2 tbsp flax seed

2 tbsp flax seed

add 1/8 tsp baking powder

Update on Sophie and is he our first volunteer?

español

I’m having the craziest month in history.  First my husband left to work out of state, then he came back injured… that alone was enough, but now the kids have what I guess is a virus, because they have fevers without any other symptoms and are missing school and home school, not to mention that Sophie and I lost the Son-Rise rythim we had… sigh… (I haven’t even had the time to play with my Julep and Ipsy boxes 😦 )

Oh well, is November the month to be thankful and I guess I have to be thankful for the challenges right? RIGHT?

First Review

español

fall park dayI don’t even want to call this my monthly review, because truth is I’ve been inconsistent with my daughter’s son rise therapy.

A lot of times I have felt awkward, not in the sense of feeling awkward with her, but with my self.  I can’t seem to be creative enough while playing and at times I don’t know what to do… how to build an exciting game or even how to feel excited.  There come times when I feel extremely sleepy inside the playroom.  And times where I have just been sick.
