Birthday in Ulster County/Woodstock Farm Sanctuary

Birthday in Ulster County/Woodstock Farm Sanctuary

New York’s Ulster County is rich with worthy day trip destinations. And it is just far enough from the City’s hustle and bustle without being too much of a roundtrip drive. Because I have been visiting since I was in high school (My first serious […]

Italian French Toast

Italian French Toast

Sometimes, you don’t eat the loaf of Italian bread soon enough and it turns into stone, like some food fairy tale. But there is a way to revive it, give it a metaphorical kiss and transform it into Prince Charming.  First you cut it into […]

The First Coast to The Lowcountry

The First Coast to The Lowcountry

Jacksonville, Florida has vegan credibility. This I state enthusiastically in my head while the locals in Southern Roots Filling Station discuss New York City vegan eats. I could chime in, I suppose, and tell them that New York City isn’t all that spectacular. Well, I mean […]

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). […]

Juneau, Alaska / Vegan on Holland America Cruise, Day 5

Greetings from the starboard side of the Oosterdam and our grand obstructed view. Yes, the floor to ceiling windows in the stateroom are on the same deck as the emergency life boats. But no fear, our priority was to have the means of seeing the […]

Jersey Day Trip

Jersey Day Trip

Treating my home, and its surrounding cities, like I would an unknown city—subject to the same fine tooth comb in search of vegan options—my list of vegan leads in the neighbor state New Jersey was growing. And preferring a random and mysterious lone vegan option […]

Holding On to Summer (Photo Release)

Holding On to Summer (Photo Release)

Though I am knee-deep in planning for September, I am holding on tight to the Summer. In the backyard, Black-eyed Susans attract the bees… and other bugs who take nibbles.  “She will feed you tomatoes and radio wires.” The garden is looking a bit chaotic. […]

Three Meals in Three States

Three Meals in Three States

Like I mentioned in my previous post, Portland is Vegan Heaven. The level of vegan eats available, both from all-vegan establishments and omni eateries, is truly daunting. Hours of operations helped me decided on Bob’s Red Mill Whole Grain Store, a outlet of sorts for Grain […]

Green “Irish” Toast

Green “Irish” Toast

Breakfast is my favorite meal. It probably has to do with years of eating cereal for breakfast… and dinner. So I’m going to make it for lunch for this upcoming week. But in honor of my Irish heritage, I’ll add coloring to my French toast […]

New Jersey || New York Vegan

New Jersey || New York Vegan

In one of those wonderful random gifts to the vegan world, Rutherford, New Jersey’s Rutherford Pancake House serves vegan breakfast options. They had me at “Vegan Challah” French Toast. I devoured the plate of moist halves of scrumptious French toast thinking, “Is this really vegan?” I get […]

Storm French Toast, Cats Inside, Snow

Storm French Toast, Cats Inside, Snow

What a delight to get a snow day on what would be my second day back at school! While we were snowed in, I took care of business. Like making a hearty breakfast: vegan French toast! Nevermind running out to the grocery store to pick […]

306 {vegan supper club}

306 {vegan supper club}

Every once and awhile, I splurge one of them fancy pants supper club dinners. And almost alway with fellow veghead CP. We find some justification for the splurge. Maybe there is a birthday that past a few weeks ago. Maybe there is some emotional epiphany […]

First Breakfast, Then Brunch

First Breakfast, Then Brunch

This weird article let me know that the 3 Brothers close to my home was not, in fact, the place to go to get Chef Jay‘s food anymore. The original owners sold the place. I am a bit relieved about this news as the place […]

West Coast Eating Extravaganza, Day 5

West Coast Eating Extravaganza, Day 5

How many times can someone have brunch in a week? With so many delicious brunch options to choose from the great city of Los Angeles, breakfast fare, maximized, made up a good portion of my eats. Today, on my last full day, is no exception. […]

Breakfast All Day {Or I ❤ Carbs All Day}

Breakfast All Day {Or I ❤ Carbs All Day}

Clearly I am on a quest to find more vegan options around my great city. A satisfying spot for each of the varied tastebuds of my tongue. Some refined and steeped in foodie sensibility, others nostalgic and in need of comforting. Carb-heavy comfort. B.A.D., an all-night […]

Heat Wave, Day 3: Berry Hot, Berry Hot!

Heat Wave, Day 3: Berry Hot, Berry Hot!

 yells Farmer Ted while dancing. The key to surviving a heat wave is to get everything you need to do done… fast! Before peak sun. So The Electrician and I hit the Rockville Centre Farmers Market bright and early. It was my first visit to […]

Out/About Vegan {Summer Edition 1}

Out/About Vegan {Summer Edition 1}

Vegan Divas makes decadent treats for the health-conscious vegan… or the not-so health conscious vegan. The ladies predominantly distribute their goodies at the city’s upper-crust health stores. I nabbed this caramel pecan brownie at Elm Health, the wonderfully stocked space on 7th avenue and 14th street. […]

In the 4-0-1

In the 4-0-1

Julian’s in Providence, Rhode Island has fantastic vegan brunch options. Traveling to another state for veggie dining adds a bit more pressure to the ordering process. There you sit with a long list of delicious-sounding options–sweet ones, savory ones, personal favorites–but you must only have […]

√ <i>To Do</i> Monday

To Do Monday

With the day off, the list of to-do’s was long and scroll-like, starting with two classes at the gym. I did the pilates stretch and alignment class. Given the early morning hour and Park avenue address, it was me and a studio filled with lively […]

[What I Am Doing on My Summer Vacation] {Part 1}

1. Watching the butterfly activity around the Electrician‘s butterfly bush. 2. Collecting hugs. 3. Trying to return to baking. Here is a two-layer orange cake with lemon glaze icing. For my Pop’s birthday. 4. Weekending in the Hamptons. That’s an outdoor shower next to the […]

Embodying Freedom

Embodying Freedom

Peace, rest, relaxation and pedicures involving American flags! It’s Fourth of July, Colorado family-style. Woken up by the dapper feline Kramer, Independence Day started with a deep long meow. It was a good thing too as top on the day’s itinerary was Om Time‘s Firecracker […]

Reuse: Fronch Toast

Reuse: Fronch Toast

My family had a few extra loaves of Italian bread delivered with our Father’s Day meal a few weekends back. With VwaV‘s Fronch Toast recipe in mind, I gladly rescued a loaf from my father’s characteristic penchant for hasty disposal. This trait, through the years, […]

I’m going to turn dining back into eating

I’m going to turn dining back into eating

I have been ingesting far more calories than I need these days, in light of my sedentary lifestyle. Weekends of horrendous weather don’t help either. Catching up… I headed to the East Village’s cramped lil’ Kosher counter staple, B&H Vegetarian Restaurant, after the person who […]
