Sorrel Pesto

Anyone remember the early days of blogging? You know, back when we all had Blogger/Blogspot addresses (no self-hosting), simply talked about food and got to know each other–the days when none of us made money off it and everything was simple? I miss those days. (Not that I make money off this site. But…it has […]

Almond Noodles w/ Pickled Bok Choi & Fried Tofu

peanut noodles

Rain, you’re drunk, go home. I mean, all those years I’ve said, “Seattle would be perfect for me! I could wear black and grey and the people are all kind of jaded and hip and the food is awesome and I totally don’t care about the gloom, who needs sun?”…yeah, I was totally wrong. Seattle, […]

The Best Veg(an) Dish in Roanoke

Apparently it’s tofu week on the blog. Wasn’t quite planning for that, but, hey, why look a themed gift horse in the mouth? Or whatever that saying is. Anyone else notice that it’s Friday? (Trust me, I’ve been counting down the hours this week…) And what better day to go out and enjoy a fancy […]

Primavera Tofu Pockets

Remember back during Vegan MoFo this past year when I made Kittee’s kick ass Crispy Crunchy Tofu Pockets? Yeah, me too. I’ve been thinking about them all these months since. I mean, hello stuffed tofu goodness, youdabes. So why on earth have I not made a tofu pocket since? I think I’ve just been in […]

Totally Taco Friday & a Garden Update


It seems like a miracle that we’ve made it to the end of this work week. Between feeling down for personal reasons and the horrific events of Boston and West and the gun bill not passing even though 80% of Americans support it and the floods that are now ravaging the midwest, it seems like […]

Asheville: Part II

Anyone get hungry reading the first installment of our Asheville trip? I seriously did when I wrote it (WHITE DUCK TACOS COME TO ME). Thankfully, though, the eating and frolicking around the city didn’t end after just one evening–we still had Sunday to enjoy. For breakfast, we braved the crowd at Tupelo Honey, a little […]

Asheville: Part I


Is there anyone who doesn’t love Asheville? It reminds me so much of Portland, Maine–a town full of restaurants, breweries, outdoorsy people, and plenty of young families with cute pups in tow. Even though I grew up visiting Brevard, NC, on a regular basis (a mere 40 minute drive south, I never actually visited Asheville […]

Curry Feast


Confession time: I get really bummed out every year when Easter rolls around. While I’m not religious (raised to be, ‘fell away,’ if you will), I do miss the traditions my mother worked hard to create. Easter breads with chocolate or fruit (chocolate all the way, baby), dresses (I wanted so badly to wear a […]

Atlanta Recap: Sublime Doughnuts, Leon’s, Floataway Cafe, Ria’s Bluebird (and El Taco Veloz in Charlotte)


Oh these dreams I have of updating my blog on a regular basis… You know the drill. (smile) So. Atlanta. Hey, at least I’m finishing the recap before the end of the month (barely)! Post-food-coma, G & I met up with a friend for breakfast on that Saturday, but the food was incredibly crappy (seriously […]

Atlanta Recap: General Muir, Botanical Gardens, Zyka, & Soul Veg


A few weekends ago (I guess March 1 is a few weekends ago now, huh), G & I drove down to Atlanta for a quick weekend of eating, exploring, hanging out with friends, and poetry listening. It’s always tough to choose where to eat a meal (I still keep up with all the Atlanta restaurant […]
