Being Plant Strong

I think Rip Esselstyn is great!

If his Dad isn't convincing you with science and research (aka Forks Over Knives and The China Study), then manly athlete and fire fighter Rip is going to show you the results in a practical way.

I really want to get our local fire station onto his Engine 2 diet. I think they would feel so much better for it!

Sunday Night Test Kitchen: Hot Toddy Cake

A new favorite website - Maple Spice - inspired me to make this cake.

It's a Hot Toddy cake and it combines cloves, lemon and whiskey. Irish whiskey, of course, as she's in Ireland.

I used almond milk instead of rice milk and used the Wilton frosting (with lemon extract instead of vanilla) instead.  It turned out delicious and very pretty with the lemons and yellow frosting.

I can't wait to try out more of her recipes. They all look so delicious!
