SUMMER TIME... and the livin's easy

Guess what? I am officially on summer vacation! For Father’s Day I made my dad biscotti and we ate it with espresso (I have an espresso machine). The farmer’s market was up for the first time but it was pretty bare. I plan on going every weekend. Yesterday I went to the beach with my friends for the first time of the year. It rained but we still had a great time. We stopped at this great soft serve Italian ice place with ices that were so creamy, they tasted like ice cream.

Seven Things and Why I love My Brother

Sorry I have been MIA for a while. My teachers have been piling on the work at school and I just have not had a break. I have final exams this week and next week, but I am finally on summer vacation on the 20th!
Midwest Vegan tagged to say seven random things about myself:

1. I have no cousins. I love my family so much and I do not really mind not having cousins, but people always think it is strange that they have 20 or more cousins and I have none. My aunt has a dog so he is kind of my cousin.

2. I have never been on a plane. My dream is to fly to California someday.

3. I like going to the dentist. I love the feeling of getting my teeth cleaned. I have never had any major work done or had braches. It’s weird, but I really love my teeth.

4. I like black coffee.

5. My favorite shows are Gilmore Girls, Entourage, Little People; Big World- to name a few.

6. My favorite sport is skimboarding. When people think of skimboarding they think of 7 year olds sliding around on the sand. I take it to the next level and do it as an extreme sport. To learn more about it you can go to

7. My favorite bands/musicians are: AFI, Hellogoodbye, Jack Johnson, Jimi Hendrix, Acceptance, Dashboard Confessional, Eric Clapton, Led Zepplin, Sublime, Cream, Blinl-182, Ok Go, 30 Seconds to Mars, Dispatch, My Chemical Romance, OAR, Paul Anka, Panic! at The Disco, Taking Back Sunday, Yellow card, The Postal Service, Pink Floyd, The Beatles, Simon and Garfunkel, Phantom Planet, The Starting Line, The Used. Chevelle, Greenday (old stuff), Queen, Coheen and Cambria, Story of the year, Motion city soundtrack, Say Anything, Reliant name a few.

My brother is home from college and I came home one day after school to find that he had cooked blueberry muffin bread. We had no cow’s milk (only soy) and the only butter we have is Earth Balance so they were vegan! The next day he decided to make vegan banana bread, even though we had cow’s milk. I was so happy that he cared enough to make vegan food so I could eat it too. Both the breads turned out fantastic!

My brother is amazing!

Strawberries are in season! I also put grape fruit in the bowl with them.
