The Season’s First Chili!

The Season’s First Chili!

Sure, it’s freezing outside. Mounds of snow complicate walking and driving and dressing. ….But it’s chili time!   What I love about chili is how you can throw the kitchen sink in… then throw the kitchen sink on top of it.  It is a vehicle for […]

Happy Hydrongenated New Year!

Happy Hydrongenated New Year!

Did you know that Pillsbury Crescent Rolls are “accidentally” vegan? This I learned after realizing I didn’t have enough time to make vegan puff pastry dough from scratch to make Pigs in a Blanket with the Field Roast breakfast links we picked up. So I took […]

Live Free Or Die. (Vegan New Hampshire, Day 1)

I am very excited to have the opportunity to do some summer traveling! The season commences with a weekend in Concord, New Hampshire with The Electrician. Bright blue skies and white cotton candy clouds, covered bridges and affirmations of beauty on the bathroom stall doors, it […]

West Coast Eating Extravaganza, Day 1

West Coast Eating Extravaganza, Day 1

Planning this trip, an extravagant foodie frenzy of all the west coast vegan eats I have craved and bookmarked through the years, was a bit overwhelming. Time is sometimes a cruel thing… time and the whole getting full thing. With so much to eat in […]
