apple cider floats + homemade vegan caramel sauce (4) this apple cider float is truly the most amazing autumn treat. at first, i thought ‘i don’t think i’m much of a float girl’, but boy was i wrong. this dessert drink is fall at it’ best. spiced to perfection, it warms you up from the inside out!

apple cider floats + homemade vegan caramel sauce (1)


- spiced apple cider (try my favorite mulling spices)
- dairy free ice cream (like so delicious or coconut bliss)
- dairy free whipped topping (like soyatoo’s soy whip)
- a sprinkle of nutmeg
- cinnamon stick
- vegan caramel sauce (see recipe below)

once you have your ingredients together, simply serve the hot cider in a mug or glass. top with a scoop of ice cream, whipped topping, homemade caramel sauce and a sprinkle of nutmeg or cinnamon. serve with a cinnamon stick on the side and enjoy!

halloween has never been a holiday i pay much attention to (though i do love handing out candy to all the neighborhood kids!). i never know what ‘to be’, but i always feel like i should put at least a little effort into, right? masks are usually my go-to costume, so i was excited to make some this year. these woodland animals are longing to be invited to your party!

each week our csa box seems to be bursting with all the ingredients i need to make this sumptuous shepherd’s pie. carrots, kale, potatoes and tofu make this a meal on it’s own, perfect for chilly fall nights. i like to serve it with homemade bread and a dollop of vegan sour cream. yum!

the bar for bar program - help support your local women's shelter! (1)

hey lovelies! today i’m really excited to share with you a very special company: poppy soap. they make beautiful, organic soaps using a unique blend of organic oils. it’s obvious they really care about the details, from their ingredients to the hand-stamped muslin bags each bar of soap is packaged in to the carbon offsets they purchase. but that’s not even the best part!

since it was founded in 2012, poppy soap has been empowering a give-back movement called the bar for bar program where for every bar of poppy soap purchased online or in stores, they donate an additional bar to a women’s shelter in their customer’s local community. to date, they’ve donated over 3,000 bars to women’s shelters across the country!

how can you help? poppy soap co.  just kicked off an indiegogo campaign to raise some much needed funding. the poppy soap team is currently working out of a studio in founder lindy laroche’s garage. they’re thrilled to be taking large orders from customers like the four seasons, but in order to fill the orders, they’ve got to have the space and equipment to grow their production. by supporting their crowdfunding campaign, you can help provide the funds to do just that!

more importantly, the funds will help keep the bar for bar program alive. until now lindy has been financially supporting the program out of her own pocket. as support for the program has grown, it’s time for the bar for bar program stand on its own two legs so poppy soap co. can continue making donations to shelters on behalf of their customers.

i hope you’ll join me in supporting this amazing company. by supporting poppy soap co. you become part of a give back movement and a supporter of women in your local community. you’ll also get your hands (and face) on some awesome poppy soap perks as well as become part of a story that proves it is possible to do business that is good for earth, good for people and good for our communities.

disclaimer: i’m proud to be an official ambassador for poppy soap co, which means that in addition to helping spread the word about this amazing company, i get compensated with some free soap. all opinions and ideas, however, are my own. :)
