What’s summer without some crab cakes, amiright? Actually, I’ve never had actual crab cakes but my husband used to love them in his pre-vegan days.

We human beings are a complex, multi-faceted species. The consciousness that motivates us is a dichotomy in which a battle rages between the violent, angry, unreasonable, selfish, jealous, greedy, cruel part of our nature and the gentle, compassionate, kind, reasonable, just, empathetic, generous part. Whichever part we choose to nurture is revealed, [...]
A wealth of research in the field of motivation demonstrates the importance of long-term goal setting. Importantly, goals need not be easy to attain in the short-term.

I’m a huge fan of Vietnamese Banh Mi. However, I do hate how they all come with some sort of animal innard ass paste, also known as Pate. I prefer calling it ass paste.
