    Confession Corner: The Prom Heist

    Confession Corner: The Prom Heist

    Forgive me Vocal readers, for I have sinned. Wait! Forgive me again, because there is something I must do in order to be worthy your forgiveness. Yes, it pains me so, but I must first put my transgression, my crime, my utter shame into writing. I will not omit a single dreadful detail from the egregious episode for fear of damning my eternal, online soul. I have my reputation and the view counts on my subsequent articles to think about! After years of torment, carrying around a burden of guilt like the bloke with the chains around his neck from that Charles Dickens book (the one with The Muppets in it), it shall be a great relief to me to finally open up about this subject. I also hope that this article somehow finds its way to the person my friend and I wronged all those years ago because part of me feels like this magical, storybook scenario would bring a sense of closure and catharsis to everybody involved. The other part of me would probably just be grateful for the extra click on my article to be honest (free money and all that). So, without any further ado (not adieu), I shall relay my outrageous – but unfortunately very true – tale unto you all. This, my friends, is the story of The Prom Heist.

    How to Make Boxed Mac and Cheese Healthier

    How to Make Boxed Mac and Cheese Healthier

    We've all been there: idly staring into the depths of the cupboard looking for something to eat. You spot the Double Stuf Oreos (yes, it's spelled Double "Stuf") on the middle shelf, tucked under the Pringles and trail mix. You know that stuf will give you a stomach ache, a headache, or even worse... you'll eat a whole sleeve and STILL be hungry, but what other options do you have?

    What We Ate #1

    What We Ate #1

    I have been a southern girl my whole life, even before I actually lived in the south. Ask anyone that I grew up with and they will tell you that if they could place me anywhere as an adult it would be somewhere in the south.

    Homemade Vegan Pancakes

    Homemade Vegan Pancakes

    So, you’ve probably come across a ton of different vegan pancake recipes – some of them great, some not so much! This one is super tasty and super easy! I came across a recipe years ago (on Instagram, I think!) and tweaked it a bit. It’s a super simple recipe that allows for variety! I have created so many wonderfully delicious types of pancakes (I’ll add some optional add-ons below) with this recipe and they’ve all been hits!

    Dare I Say Chocolate Food Porn?

    Dare I Say Chocolate Food Porn?

    It’s been a long time since my last chaotic cocoa bean and culinary catastrophe and although I have enjoyed some chocolaty tryptophan highs, I have to confess to a selection box of fudging gastronomic lows where I’ve managed to make a complete sticky chocolate pudding of myself and not told a soul – until now.
