Hey there! How was your week? Mine was busier than usual so I am BEAT!! BUT...I did get to spend the holidays w my fam and got to see movies, eat yummy food, and snuggle with all my faves, so it was ALL worthwhile!!

My Vegan Pinwheels were a huge hit for the Holidays!
One of my fave apps (that is short for appetizers, not applications) growing up is the pinwheel. I didn't know that is what it was called until today, but it's when you mix cream cheese with something and roll it up in a flour totilla and slice it!! YUM!!! So I wanted to make a vegan version for all the holiday parties we attended this year. No parties we went to had any other vegans, and ALL my pinwheels were gobbled up quickly! SUCCESS!!!!
Here is the recipe to make 10 total wraps...
I make half w olives and half w jalapenos.
-10 large flour tortillas (Make sure they don't contain lard or any other animal products. My fave brand is a local one they make in my small town, so I'm no help. Mine only have 4 ingredients though, so the fewer ingredients the better in my opnion)
-Two 8 oz buckets of vegan cream cheese (I know Daiya and Tofutti both have vegan cream cheeses, there may be more out there, but those are the ones I have tried and like them both)
-1 medium can of chopped jalapenos (I think it's about 5-6 oz size)
-1 medium can of chopped black olives
-Mix one tub of cream cheese with the olives
-Spread 1/5 of the mixture evenly on a tortilla
-Roll it up
-Slice the roll into about 8 pieces
-Eat the ends since they are so uneven ;)
-Repeat w other tub of cream cheese and jajapenos
for more easy vegan meals and snacks!

What 10 Years as a Passion Parties Consultant has Taught Me
HAPPY PASSIONANNIVERSARY TO ME!!
So I started looking online for things I could do to make money with skills I already had, without having to invest a lot of time or money to get it going.
I was already maxed out on time (worked at the gym 5am-5pm 7 days a week) and money (everything we made was already spoken for). This brought me into the world of direct sales and network marketing. Now all I had to decide is what I wanted to sell??
Everything that I knew about (candles, lotions, makeup, cooking stuff, supplements, etc.) all seemed like a hard thing to sell. And that is when Passion Parties came across my screen. It seemed like it would be easier to sell, if for nothing else, curiosity would bring women to a party, and once they are there, they will want to buy at least a lube or something to keep them out of "those stores" or avoid a loudspeaker announcement at Walmart "price check on K-Y lube for the woman in checkout lane 4 please".
I was sold.
