Homemade Vegan Yolos…and an ode to experimentation

As we leave behind 2014 and begin setting intentions for 2015, I am deciding to commit myself to more experimentation in the coming year.

For me, that means trying new things and getting the hang of failure. It means scaling my grand schemes

to make that failure a little less scary.

Going out on a limb 

and feeling less attached to the outcome

than the process.

Expanding my horizons 

and throwing caution to the wind…

if even just a little bit.

So here is my first experiment:  making a little video recipe instead of my usual blog post format.  Though it may not be perfect, I had a lovely time immersing myself in a new creative process, learning something new, and feeling the rush of excitement that comes with completing a little project, and wondering what I could try next.
