Blue Ridge Parkway & Plant

Have you ever had a moment when you’re driving and you see a sign or a turn off and you say, what the hell, and take it, even though it’s going to add time to your route or maybe even take you off course? I’ll admit, I rarely do that. But on the way back […]

Atlanta Eats, Part II

While one and a half days is not enough time to eat all the vegan goodness in Atlanta, I certainly tried my best. After the uber filling dinner of Delia’s, I lost a bit of time Tuesday morning due to the whole keys-locked-in-trunk thing. Thankfully I was still pretty stuffed from the night before, so […]

Atlanta Eats, Part I

A day late and a dollar short–turns out my Atlanta trip got a little more exciting yesterday morning when I locked my keys in my trunk. Whoops. So my schedule (of eating–what else?) was thrown off and left no time for blogging. It happens, though right? (Oh, and AAA saved the day and broke into […]

Bean Vegan Cuisine & Cyclocross

Vegan MoFo hits the road! I haven’t shared this with you all yet, but exciting news in my world–I accepted an offer to work with Starlight Custom Cycling Apparel as a marketing/sales opps person! While my other job was a fine job, it was just that: a job. Starlight, I have a feeling, will be […]

The Enchanted Broccoli Forest: Cream of Tomato Soup

When I was little, my father’s go-to comfort meal was a bowl of Campbell’s tomato soup and a grilled cheese sandwich. Early on, I learned how to open the cans, dump the congealed soup into a pot, fill up the empty can with milk, mix the two together over low, and serve with a wheat […]

The Soul of a New Cuisine: Apple-Squash Fritters

I can’t do this book justice. At ~340 pages in length with recipes spanning the entire African continent, it’s impossible to represent it in one small recipe. But that’s the challenge I have, I suppose. Sadly, this, once again, is the first time I’ve ever cooked from Marcus Samuelsson’s The Soul of a New Cuisine: […]

Papa Tofu: Crispy Crunchy Stuffed Tofu Pockets

Now that we’ve had some Nice Ass Greens, how about some Crispy Crunchy Stuffed Tofu Pockets to go with them? (Some recipeless cheezy grits are on the bottom of the ensemble, by the way.) These little tofu pocket gems come to us via Kittee Berns of Cake Maker to the Stars. I’ve had the pleasure […]

Sunny Days in Texas: Nice Ass Greens

Week three, week three–let’s start with some Nice Ass Greens! Saturday found me with a little spare time, so I spent the afternoon cooking up a vegan Southern feast. Crispy Crunchy Stuffed Tofu Pockets from Kittee’s Papa Tofu zine will come tomorrow, but today I’m all about some awesome collard greens. At market, farmers are […]

The Joy of Vegan Baking: Chocolate Chip Cookies

It turns out that I’m kind of cheating with this recipe. I knew I’d already made it at some point over the last few years, but I didn’t know that I’d already posted a version of it on the blog! The fact that it was back in 2008 gives me a little wiggle room, though, […]

Down Yonder Zine: Summer Tomato Tart

A couple of years ago when I lived in Atlanta, I rented a house with two friends in the section of town called Old Fourth Ward. Besides the great perks of having my backyard butt up to the bike path or the bakery I worked at being across the street (makes stumbling to work at […]
