Vegan Week Day 3 – There is so much of cooking for me that is on automatic pilot. I reach for the same items in the grocery store and I cook the same things over and over again. Not because I love them so much, but because I am in a hurry and don’t have […]

I know the Kitchenarian has left a few notes here pertaining to my whereabouts, but I’ll say that I’m currently in Northern England, traveling around a lot day by day and seeing so many amazing sites. Of course, I’ve also been eating a lot of starchy, hearty food up here in the UK – it’s […]

Kitchenarian Flourless Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies

I have seen several recipes recently for flourless cookies on the internet and have really wanted to bake some.
