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 […]

Neon & Steel [And Some Food]

I woke up in Cincinnati, Ohio and went to bed in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. This means that, likely, I will spend tomorrow evening in my own bed. New York. Though I am squeezing in brief stops as I pass through, this excursion is winding down. But […]

Vegan Cheese and Chive Corn Dogs

After a glorious gorgeous day at sea on the soft-sanded and low-key Brighton Beach, Coney Island’s quiet cousin, my new eclair “canoe” baking pan was finally utilized by way of cheddar and chive corn dogs. Sun-tired and hungry, CP and I pulled these dogs together […]

Winter = Chili

Winter = Chili

After a look at my finances, I put my foot down. No more runs to Zabar’s for lunch for their soup. If my brokeness weren’t enough, the recent cornbread recipe from the VegNews Recipe Club sealed the deal. It was time to step up to […]
