Recapping an Adventurous Weekend

Pin it

I spent the latter half of the week in Chicago on business. It was a very last minute trip, which although I enjoy, comes its own sets of frustrations and anxieties. By the time Friday afternoon rolled around, I was excited to be boarding my plane and heading home. The flight itself was uneventful. I …

Vegan Maple Doughnuts & Weekly Recipe Roundup

It was a pretty relaxed, albeit short, weekend here. Saturday was a run of the mill, utilitarian day. The highlight was my short run in the morning before the sun came out in full force. I love the part of town we live in because it means that I can pass by the State Capitol on …

It’s Pumpkin Time!

There is a Whole Foods close to where I work, so I eat there for lunch at least twice a week. I’m pretty addicted to their vegan “chicken” salad. Yesterday, as I was strolling in to pick up my regular order, a bright, orange display caught my eye. Before I could stop myself, a gasp escaped from …

30 Day Vegan Challenges

Y’all! I know this is hardly impressive, but Creature Free has received over 200 “likes” as of yesterday afternoon! I can’t believe that anyone is reading this at all, let alone actively liking my posts. Thank you. It means so much to me 🙂 I have a feeling that about 50-75% of my daily page views are my parents …

Adventures in Thai Cooking: Pad Kee Mao

Pin it

Happy Tuesday, lovelies! I hope you all had an amazing holiday weekend filled to the brim with vegan goodies. I know that I certainly did! Unity Vegan Kitchen‘s weekly special. A vegan Philly cheese steak with homemade onion rings, and of course, a pumpkin flavored beer! Homemade tofu scramble breakfast tacos. On Saturday night, JB suggested …

Hot & Spicy Tofu Stir-Fry

Yay! This is officially my 25th post! I know things were a little slow last week, but it’s so difficult for me to juggle my time when guests are in the house. I’ve mastered the art of time management in the context of work and school, but it seems I have much to learn when it …

Cara’s Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

If you’ve been following my blog from its humble beginnings (about little over a month ago, now), you have probably noticed a startling lack of yummy vegan treats being posted here. I love to cook entrees, but I am not very skilled in the baking department. When I went to visit my college friends a …

Easy Monday Meals

If you read this blog regularly (or at least semi-regularly), then you already know that I’ve been doing a fair bit of traveling this summer. While it’s been a blast and I’ve really enjoyed myself, it does make me cherish my meals at home. It’s so hard, even as a vegan, to eat healthy while …

JB’s Pad Thai

Wow, Sunday evening sure has a way of rolling around fast. Wasn’t it just Friday? The boy and I have a Sunday night ritual: every week, we eat pad thai together. We’ve done so ever since we moved to Austin a little over three years ago. The only Sundays where this recipe doesn’t get made are the …

Saturday Sweets

Happy Saturday, lovelies! I’m so glad that it’s finally here – this past week was a little crazy! I’m sure you’ve noticed that it’s been a slow couple of days on the posting front, but if you’re ever craving more Creature Free, be sure to follow me on Instagram (@creaturefreee). You can find more pictures there in the spaces between …
