“`Oh, Courtney did it’ or `Oh, the Dreamachine did it.’ Everything pointing away from Kurt doing it. River’s death is open for some speculation. But everyone wants to go after River for his death, while on the other hand, everyone wants to alleviate Kurt for his death. River was Mr. Virtue and Kurt was very indulgent, and he was publicly indulgent, and River was trying to promote peace and love and animal rights, save the forest, etc. Kurt went along with those same viewpoints, but Kurt’s press was more about his own predicament. They were different test cases in public relations. And because River was a vegetarian he wasn’t allowed to die the way he died - by the press. They associated vegetarianism with an I-am-holier-than-thou attitude. And they went after him when it turned out that he wasn’t as pure as they thought”

It Started With A Waffle: Sweet Potato Nachos

“When it comes to the Super Bowl, I’m a big fan of sitting by the couch and nibbling on a table full of delicious snacks. What are my favorite snacks you ask? Nachos. Sweet potato nachos to be more specific. Layer them with all of your favorite toppings and stack ‘em however you’d like!”

It Started With A Waffle: Inception Cookies

“Inception Cookies are one of the items I became known for, especially selling at shows. People buy what they think is just a giant chocolate chip cookie, walk away from the table, bite into it and make some sorta pleasantly surprised face when they discover the harmony of the Oreo and chocolate chip cookie all in one package. Then, they turn around, point at the cookie, and give me a thumbs up. Make these cookies for your friends and don’t tell them what’s inside.”

It Started With A Waffle: Eggnog French Toast

“I used to be weirded out by eggnog when I was little. ‘What were eggs doing in milk?’ I thought to myself. I had never tried non-vegan eggnog, but I’m glad to say that I really enjoy the vegan versions nowadays.

I was shopping at the grocery store the other day and planned on to make French toast when I got home. Then… I unpacked the vegan nog, and the whole plot changed. Eggnog French Toast for the win! Since this recipe is vegan, I used applesauce and flaxseed meal in place of eggs.”
