Brunch at Double Zero

Brunch at Double Zero

A new Matthew Kenney restaurant is kind of a big deal. His food is nearly perfectly composed, flavorful and looks beautiful. He is creating an empire of all-vegan… whilest not watering down his brand. Each eatery has a distinct style of cuisine. Today’s: Brunch at […]

I want S’more

I want S’more

Sometimes I make enough cupcakes, enough that I have to drive to work. With a staff potluck and a bake sale that I organized, this was the case this past week. Both events called for a special load of cupcakes. I opted for the nostalgic s’mores […]

Vegan Amsterdam

Vegan Amsterdam

Maybe it’s Europe or maybe it’s seeing Before Sunrise in my formative years, but train rides are pretty romantic. The moments of building inertia then the surrender to a lulling undulation of the train car back and forth is evocative. Still inside the motion of […]

Good Things I Ate Recently

Good Things I Ate Recently

Tofu is only going to be as good as you make it. It’s ready to suck in flavor and build its texture–but that takes you. After creating a powerful marinade and letting these Lincoln logs bathe in it all day, I build texture, roasting each side 25-ish […]

Sun Sandwich

Sun Sandwich

Isn’t it amazing how days are neatly organized, bookended by the rising and setting of a bright, hot, great ball of fire? Goodness. Gracious.  Inside them, other good things that bring you joy and sustenance, like a cracked chocolate-encased marshmallow… …Spring baseball in front of a plate […]

V.V. Does A.C.

V.V. Does A.C.

It seems the world gets more and more vegan-friendly everyday. As a vegan food blogger, the surge in vegan options near, kinda near, far and very far is overwhelming. From big cities to small locales, I can’t keep up. But I try… And I looove […]

Two Brunches in New Jersey

Two Brunches in New Jersey

I am delighted to kick-off the first V.V. report that highlights the vegan wonders of my neighboring states: the Tristate area. As you may or may not know, New Jersey has a lot to offer a vegan.  To start, take these two wonderful eateries… Vital Dining, […]

Draft Outtakes (from Summer)

Draft Outtakes (from Summer)

Flashback to summer & the butterfly bush. Monarchy. “And the one big eye just blinked…” Oreo pancakes were a bit of a fail… Morning pink.

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). […]

The Gorge and Vegan Cheese Boards

The Gorge and Vegan Cheese Boards

Besides being beautiful, New York’s Finger Lakes Region has some spectacular vegan options. Like Veraisons, the restaurant located on Glenora Winery in Dundee. Honestly, this place was our main reason for this trip. After discovering the vegan options on its seasonal menus, I have been watching […]

Farm Sanctuary / Watkins Glen Vegan Ops

Farm Sanctuary / Watkins Glen Vegan Ops

Maywood Pancake House, in Maywood, New Jersey, is kind of a second location of Rutherford Pancake House (blog report on their vegan challah French toast is here). Both locations feature vegan breakfast options, which is far more a special than lunch or dinner options.  I was […]

{More} Freshwater Life / Vegan in the Poconos

{More} Freshwater Life / Vegan in the Poconos

Hawley, Pennsylvania is a resort town in the Poconos Mountains Lake Region located just far enough from the thriving metropolis New York City to feel like you’ve entered an entirely different habitat. Though most of the area resorts are for various outdoor adventuring, The Lodge […]

Bizarre Eats & Treats in the Bay Area

Bizarre Eats & Treats in the Bay Area

SOMA StrEat Food Park sets up next to the I-80, South of Market. Thanks to the rain (and the holiday?) we enjoyed this space with minimal crowding.  The apple of my eye? Hella Vegan Eats, “festive” all-vegan cuisine.  I had to get the bizarre Birthday Burger, a dense beet-based patty […]

Sweet eats for me on Valentine’s Day: Box of Divine Treasures chocolates. Red velvet pancakes at Champs Diner A box of Dun-well Doughnuts Happy Valentine’s Day!

January is a blur.

January is a blur.

I feel like January always flies. In the gung-ho of setting productive routines for the new year, time is used optimally. And so it is moves swiftly. Here are some photos of its food choices. I did a week of gluten-free-ness, which started with these gluten […]

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 […]

Asbury Park, Vegan Style

Asbury Park, Vegan Style

The reach of vegan keeps extending… and I am thankful for these opportunities of discovery and… sustenance. My latest discovery, Goldie’s in Asbury Park, is an all-vegan and all-respectful-of-food eatery on the renovated Cookman Avenue in downtown in the Jersey Shore destination of Asbury Park. […]

Midwest Vegan, Day 6 [Chicago-style]

Midwest Vegan, Day 6 [Chicago-style]

The first full day in Chicago, Illinois on my own started at West Town Bakery & Diner, a spacious eatery with that ol’ diner feel… and a stocked bakery case with vegan delights. Breakfast was in order, and a sweet one at that. Sweet indeed. The […]

Long Weekends

Long Weekends

The Beninngton flag waves on Memorial Day weekend. As does the Stars and Stripes on the beer. On the plate: my favorite summer side: corn grilled in its husk, Field Roast apple-sage sausage topped with the kitchen sink, and a delicious potato salad that The Electrician made. […]

Breakfast for Lunch Again

Breakfast for Lunch Again

When I get a pancake craving, it’s hard to disseminate. Do I want the ultimate vehicle for sweet and savory? Do I want several airy, thin cakes with crispy browned corners? It depends. Whichever the case, I can certainly half my pancake recipe so as […]

Brunch Lunch (A Turnover Fairy Tale)

Brunch Lunch (A Turnover Fairy Tale)

Every now and again you need to use what you already have–make some movement in the refrigerator. My crisper drawer runneth over. It is not permanent storage. So for my week’s lunch, I’d use it all. It would be brunch for lunch. What better an idea to use […]

A trip to Brooklyn

A trip to Brooklyn

Scenes from our “trip” to Brooklyn… The view from our room in the highrise. On the way to Monte’s, Brooklyn’s oldest Italian restaurant, for a rehearsal dinner. The Electrician wore Gucci, me–polyurethane. After way too much wine, the morning after was tough. Brunch at Sun […]
