Iao Valley State ParkI’m Amber. I write a vegan blog — and my husband Duc and I run a B&B in downtown Ithaca, New York. Come stay with us!

Here’s some more about me:

I am vegan, an educator, and an activist.
I like to bake, eat, and support animal & human rights.
I’m a certified natural chef from the Natural Kitchen Cooking School.
I love all animals, especially cats!
My first love was a tuxedo cat named Mittens.
I rescue cats who have feline leukemia virus (FeLV) to give them a good life in the time they have on this Earth.
Please note: I have my own small home colony and cannot take in any additional kitties at this time.
I love Halloween and have a dark, snarky sense of humor.
I am an East Coast/Jersey girl at heart who has relocated to upstate New York.
To quote Steve Martin’s character, Vinnie, in My Blue Heaven, “It’s not tipping I believe in. It’s overtipping.”
