Now that the cold weather is here in some parts of the Northern Hemisphere, many of you are flocking to week-long resorts in tropical destinations. Lots of you read on the beach — there's even a sub-genre called "beach reads." If you're thinking about what to bring and you've been shying away from the "literature" or "classics" sections of your bookstore, fear not: this English literature graduate has some great classics you can polish off quickly while soaking in the sunshine.
Yes, buying almond milk at the store is oh-so-convenient… but it's not nearly as yummy or good for you!And if you want it to be REALLY tasty make it with coconut water instead of plain water (if coconut water isn't your thing, you can always use plain water and this still tastes good).
My partner and I just bought our first house. We love it. However, we didn't get the first four we tried for, and we almost didn't get this one at least 372 times throughout the process. I found myself on an emotional rollercoaster where I had to constantly prepare myself for a possible "it's just not going to work."

This is my Crock Pot Tomato Sauce. I adapted it from a recipe I saw online somewhere forever ago. My nearly three-year-old daughter loves it and it's hearty enough that my carnivorous hubby-to-be doesn't notice when it doesn't have meat. But you can totally add meat to it later, especially if cooking for vegans, vegetarians, and omnivores alike. And it is SUPER easy!
