One of the most popular wines in the world, and definitely one of my favorites, is the good ole’ Cabernet Sauvignon. But what do you know about this staple wine? Personally, I knew very little. So I did a little research and am here today to share what I found. Continue reading

A Melancholic Day in Austin, TX

I was born and raised in Austin, yet, there’s a part of me that just doesn’t feel like I belong. Which is a bit surprising, even to me. I mean, I’m vegan, I love music, I love quirky vintage things, so what gives? Austin should be a haven for me!

Maybe it’s the surge of people moving in who have changed this city. Maybe it’s the Continue reading

Vegan Potato and Onion Pierogies

One of the best meals I’ve ever had was at a restaurant called Vegemiasto in Warsaw, Poland. Completely vegan potato and onion pierogies with a glass of lemonade on the side. Oh my goodness ya’ll… I don’t know how they did it. They were soft and light, not too heavy, but certainly very flavorful and delicious.

I can taste them like it was yesterday! So ever since then, I have been trying to figure out Continue reading

Old World Wine VS. New World Wine. Wait what?

I’d heard the terms old world wine and new world wine many times before I actually knew what it meant. Was one a medieval way of making wine? Is one just a fancy new technique? Not exactly. Let’s get into it.

The difference between old world wine and new world wine is pretty much just where Continue reading

Exploring Barcelona

“Baaarcelona I still long to hold ya once mo-o-re.” Oh Barcelona, you hold so 11403400_10204438925476418_517426218050448971_nmuch. Amazing markets, busy beaches, and absolutely delicious food. I mean the tapas people, TAPAS! Who doesn’t like tapas?

As cheery as I may sound, I’ll be honest about something, I wasn’t the biggest fan of Barcelona. I know, I am one of the few. In my opinion however, it seemed so over saturated with tourists, which is to be expected at any tourist destination, I know, but still… Continue reading

Let’s Talk About Veganism

Just over 3 years ago I made one of the best decisions of my life. I decided to go vegan.

I know what you’re thinking, “oh please, you’re just saying that. Nothings changed.”. But let me tell you, everything has changed.  Continue reading

The Hills are Alive in Salzburg

11703144_10204518758872203_1601807759616980948_nWhen I made plans to go to Salzburg it wasn’t so much of a conscious “I’ve always dreamed of Salzburg, I must go!” as it was that it was the cheapest place to fly out of to catch my plane in Oslo back home. So arriving there I didn’t have much to expect. Had I seen the Sound of Music? Well, before this European adventure, no. Funny Continue reading

Chilled Cucumber and Avocado Soup

August is here, a heatwave has hit, and I’m just so ready for colder weather.

I mean, hot weather is great but… I need cold. I need those gloomy days where it’s too cold to go outside, a big cozy sweater wrapped around me and a big cup of something hot in my hands. Perfection.

Yeah, good luck finding that in Texas Sarah…

Anyway, at least I can eat cold refreshing foods in the meantime to cool off from this atrocious heat.

If you can’t tell from it’s bright green glow, this soup is seriously healthy for you. With cucumbers and avocados making up the base, it’ll make you glow just as well.

Enjoy!

Exploring the Shire

I always find it amusing what people associate with different countries. The United Kingdom is reduced to London, France is all wine, cheese, and beautiful Paris, and as of late New Zealand has been known as the land of the hobbits. If you are a fan of The Lord of the Rings or The Hobbit, New Zealand is a must stop for you.
