Why do I hate cooking?
I’m terrible at it.
I have a very specific diet, eating mostly Raw Till 4.
However, inspired by Trader Joe’s Whole Wheat Cinnamon Rolls and living at a petsit without a working oven, I attempted to make my own relatively Raw Till 4 Vegan Stovetop Cinnamon Buns with these guidelines:
First, boil 2 cinnamon sticks with a banana, and a cup of water for 5 minutes.
Next transfer this to a mixing bowl and add apple sauce and vanilla.
Flour your work surface.
Roll out your dough.
Mix cinnamon with sugar and sprinkle mixture all over dough surface and smooth it out until evenly distributed.
Roll up the dough into one hunkin’ chunk.
Slice dough into 1-2 inch thick pieces, depending on how thick you want your buns.
Tuck buns tightly next to each in your pan, after liberally spraying the pan with cooking spray, if it is not non-stick.
Place a damp paper towel or towel over the buns to keep them moist.
Place a lid or a similar sized pan on top to trap in heat.
Heat them slowly over a low flame, so they have time to cook from the inside out. As one side starts to brown, flip them over, so both sides cook. You can flip them again on their sides for more coverage.
I might have cooked them a little too long on one side. Oops!
But they are delicious, and it was too cold for me to leave the apartment – and I wanted to make this with what ingredients I had – so I made these without yeast! Gasp! With yeast, they would have turned out even less dense, more fluffy!
I’m going to try making them again, but if you’re ever in a pinch – without an oven or yeast – cinnamon rolls are a distinct possibility.
And here is Sandy’s review of the Vegan Stovetop Cinnamon Buns!
Overnight Oats are a delicious treat for breakfast or dessert.
Sweet, heart healthy carbs, they are ultimate sweet treat.
I have only a few more days in NYC with Sandy before I head back to the West Coast to Visit San Francisco for a week and then Hawaii, and I’ve been sick with a cold. Sandy has been busy getting back into the groove of work after unexpectedly being away for a week, stuck in Vegas because of the snowstorm that cancelled our Monday flight.
In between sending some job applications out, writing on here, fiddling with youtube, and taking Olive out for walks, I’ve been trying to find one thing to cook each night to ensure my honey has something delicious and healthy to come home to, with enough cooked for him to bring leftovers for lunch the next day.
3 years into paying off our 15 year mortgage on the Hoboken condo, we received an inquiry from our current tenants as to whether whether they could purchase the condo from us.
Sure is tempting, considering I co-own it with my ex. It’s a little messy needing to deal with each other whenever we need to find new tenants or deal with mortgage costs and renovations…
Trying to dodge paying for access to the Tecopa Hot Springs at , we decided to try out the lakes you see on your way to the Tecopa Hot Springs Campground and Delights Hot Springs.
However, walking into the lake, you’ll find that your feet will sink into the ground. Before you reach the lake, your feet will have sunk at least a foot into mud…
We booked a 2012 Smart Car fortwo from Andrew through the Car Borrowing App – Turo.
It was a wonderful experience!
The car is a little small. Picking up the car we were a little unsure whether we would be able to fit all our camping accoutrements in the back…

Why are there sand dunes in Death Valley?
The sand dunes of Death Valley are in specific areas not because the sand was generated where it has fallen, but because these are areas where the sand has become trapped. The sand comes from eroded canyons and washes, and when the wind blows them to these areas, it gets caught and creates sand dunes…
It’s weird, 3 months ago, to think that I was heading out on a work tour through the end of May. Animal rights activism. Living in a van.
Seems so far away now.
It’s been 20 days – 3 weeks – since I quit that job. I haven’t looked back once. No regrets about quitting. It has been an unexpectedly warm, interesting, welcoming life I have stumbled into since leaving the tour.
Sometimes I wonder, “What is happening to Grace (my tour partner)?” I know she is back on the road, but I have no idea who she is touring with. I wish her well and hope that the tour has significantly improved since my form of protest in quitting.
Since leaving, all I do is look forward…
