Thanksgiving 2017

Thanksgiving 2017

I love to cook for hours. It’s true. Give me time, space, and the radio and I’ll happily create numerous dishes from scratch with loving care. This Thanksgiving my goal was to use a lot of the ton of pumpkin puree I have. So I […]

Yankees Stadium (V)

Yankees Stadium (V)

The last time I was at a New York Yankees game was 11 years ago in the old stadium. And though sports rivalry can raise the stakes in an enjoyable way, this Mets fan doesn’t project repressed and misplaced anger upon sports franchises…or their fans. […]

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 […]

Through the Night With the Light From Above {Backyard/Independence Day 2016}

Super Bowl 50

Super Bowl 50

I enjoy a reason to cook all day. Not only does the Super Bowl offer that opportunity, it allows the menu to be gluttonous finger foods. This year I also took the opportunity to do some pantry turnover. I based my menu on what had […]

Autumn Beauty, Vegan Oneonta/Cooperstown

Autumn Beauty, Vegan Oneonta/Cooperstown

Before setting out on a road trip, a vegan has to consider how long it may be until a proper meal is available. Like a marathoner, it may be appropriate to load up on carbs to anchor the behind in for hours driving (not running). […]

Where’s the “Meat” Ravioli?

Where’s the “Meat” Ravioli?

Although there are plenty of vegan ravioli options abound, most of the fillings are vegetable or tofu-based “ricotta.” In fact, in my almost 20 years of being an informed vegan, I have never seen vegan “meat” ravioli–either on a restaurant’s menu or at the store. […]

Home for the Super Bowl 49

Home for the Super Bowl 49

The Super Bowl is great reason to make a lot of food. Counter-clockwise: I made potato skins, blank canvases for assorted fixings. Cashew sour cream. Field Roast corn dogs. Mini omelet bites from leftover batter. Green onion. Nacho cheese from Oh She Glows. Sauteed sweet […]

Packaged.

Packaged.

Though packaged is generally a turn-off, I sometimes makes an exception for Field Roast. For one, its deli slices and sausages are seitan-based, less processed (and scary) than that soy protein isolate stuff. Field Roast is not secretly ConAgra, like that popular brand of meat analogs. They’re a nice company […]

Back to Lunch

Back to Lunch

Sundays in Fall means back to lunch. As the school year continues to kick my butt, I adjust slowly–feeling my best at some point on Sunday morning. In the middle of my making lunch for the week. Sweet potato mash, roasted red beets, and roasted […]

Crossing the Mason-Dixon: Vegan Eats in Richmond, VA (Day 2)

Crossing the Mason-Dixon: Vegan Eats in Richmond, VA (Day 2)

There is nothing more fantastic than a tofu scramble in the morning… especially when you group the classic vegan breakfast with a good cup of Joe and the freedom of having the whole day at your disposable. No errands. None of the normal routines that […]

Independence Day 2014

Independence Day 2014

I am glad to be back home for the 4th. Outside the Bennington flaps proudly. Inside, I get started crafting my 50 States Commemoration necklace that will celebrate my spending time in all of our 50 United States. I visit #48 next week… leaving two more. […]

Autumn comes and goes fast. In an attempt to slow down the season already pushed into streetlamp snowflakes and Christmas music, let us eat its bounty and keep in mind that the about a Winter Solstice is a month away. Autumn Dins is here. Lite […]

Autumn Cooking: Apple Sausage Wild Rice Stuffing

Autumn Cooking: Apple Sausage Wild Rice Stuffing

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! When glorious autumn is seasonal. Chilly mornings give way to bright, potent sun. This often short-lived delicate balance is my favorite time of the year. And autumn eats are my favorite, too. Heartier, Earthier… I ❤ autumn!So now, […]

Lower East Vegan

Lower East Vegan

Pala on the Lower East Side has a great vegan menu. It also has gluten-free options. Given its proximity to the Sunshine Theater, it makes for an easy option for a vegan and a one with gluten intolerance. So we, vegan and one with gluten intolerance, dined […]

Thanks.

Thanks.

I’d like to cook a proper Thanksgiving feast, but it’s not that simple unfortunately. It’d have to be a reheated prepared meal. And thankfully, that ain’t bad at all. With a Whole Foods near, it’s convenient enough. I ordered their Vegan Field Roast with an extra […]

Vegan MoFo #24: Vegan on the I-5 South

Vegan MoFo #24: Vegan on the I-5 South

I had some unfinished business in the Pacific Northwest. And by business I mean vegan food to eat. This time I flew into Seattle only to head straight to Portland, Oregon, thee vegan capital of the country. But after a long transatlantic flight, we weren’t […]
