Daring Bakers

Strawberry Mirror Cake–July 2007 So it’s time I do this for good–I need to resign from the group. I haven’t been the best of posters, constantly too busy, too many emergencies, not enough money, and this month is a testament to that. I literally don’t have the money to make the cake this month–I spent […]

The Carbon-Free Home

I work for an independent book store, A Cappella Books, in Atlanta and, in addition to working in the store, I plan and execute book readings. Today I had the pleasure of finally meeting Stephen & Rebekah Hren, authors of The Carbon-Free Home: 36 Remodeling Projects to Help Kick the Fossil-Fuel Habit. Generally I’m not […]

Chocolate Chip Carrot Sunrise Muffins

Chocolate belongs in everything. That’s why mole was invented. And in baked goods, it’s even more of an “of course” type of thing. I had some carrots sitting around in my fridge that I needed to use up before they rotted and for some reason I really wanted a muffin with chocolate in it. Thus […]

NYC Recap & Dorian Gray

I’m back! Miss me? So down to the nitty gritty. New York was tasty as ever (as if it couldn’t be). I didn’t take pictures of what I ate because, well, I just don’t do that in restaurants. But here’s a list of all the vegan meals I had and where I had them at […]

New York! and Chocolate Pistachio Cream Cheese Danish Bread

Sorry for not posting in awhile. School. That’s all I have to say about that. However! I’m off to NYC for a week to visit friends, eat tasty vegan food, and pine over the fact that I couldn’t fly my bike up with me this time. Sigh. At least I’ll be hitting up the Siren […]


It’s my first veganersary! Granted, I was not necessarily (ok, at all) completely vegan (for full story see my meme post) last July 7, and I get drunk and eat cheesy food (pun intended), and I love to eat Taria’s pastry creations (she’s fruitarian but the best pastry chef in Atlanta, so again, humor me), […]

Chocolate Chip Pistachio Cookies

OH the things you can do with pistachios. Lemee tell ya… So a couple of weeks ago I was in a pretty major funk. Things on the school front were not looking well (my funding was pulled over an administrative mistake–it’s back, thank god), the poet was out of town and we’d had a tiff […]

Pistachio Crusted Tofu

Remember Shake n’ Bake? That glorious mix of bread crumbs and parmesean and god-knows-what-else-but-it-was-tasty? Yeah, I miss it sometimes. Who knows, maybe there’s a by-accident vegan Shake n’ Bake out there, but it wouldn’t be right without the chicken. Do I miss chicken? No. I just miss the baked crusty deliciousness of what’s put on […]
