Love, but…

I love them. They are so cute. The tofu scramble was so good!! Definitely have to try more of their recipes. But Mickey, please stop talking while yawning! It gets me every time. I listen at work and it always makes me yawn back! Lol

Love this couple!!

They are so adorable. Their laughs are so contagious. I feel welcomed into their kitchen when they talk about their recipes. They talk about what their young sons like, which is encouraging for parents who may want to raise their children vegan. And they not only give great tips, but they shout out vegan blogs, cookbooks and YouTube’s to follow as well.

Funny, Down-to-Earth Great Ideas

I hate cooking... it's usually a 50% chance that things I cook will be edible. So I absolutely LOVE this podcast. The hosts are funny and have great rapport. They are so down to earth and share so many great ideas and recipes that are EASY to do. Since they have two kids, they share lots of kid and family-friendly recipes which....truth be told...are just as helpful for those of us without little ones. I've learned a lot from these guys and look forward to every new episode.
