Some Vegan Things I Like Lately

Some Vegan Things I Like Lately

My Canon PowerShot G9X is always with me.  It’s a lovely point and shoot with a throwback design that reminds me of my grandfather’s old cameras.  I was excited to find a faux leather case that suits its aesthetic.  I was also excited about this […]

More Vegan Stuff On Long Island

I am having a hard time keeping up with new vegan offerings.  And since “plant-based” was named the number one food trend for 2018, I’ll be very busy. Here is a quick run-down on some new-to-me vegan options on la isla largo. Real Food, Real […]

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 […]

Vegan Fest at The Refuge

Vegan Fest at The Refuge

With vegan options popping up and expanding all over the place, my vegan radar has a constant and continuous bleep-bleep. From new eateries to new options and special events, I wish my appetite can keep up. But when I saw the invite to The Refuge‘s […]

Birthday Outtakes, Part 1

Birthday Outtakes, Part 1

I had the chance to stop at La Bella Pasta in Kingston, New York to score some of their vegan pasta.  Fresh made vegan pasta is a new blog reporting passion of mind. I hope as more accept plant-based as normal, other pasta makers will […]

Superior Pasta in South Philly

Superior Pasta in South Philly

When I was a kid I loved ravioli. Meat ravioli. I remember joining my mother when she picked it up from the Italian market. I knew that the ritual was different than going to the generic grocery store a few doors down. And the meat ravioli […]

Dirt Candy Revisited

Dirt Candy Revisited

I went to Dirt Candy back in 2012 when they were a tiny, dark, bustling space. Sadly, the tiny, dark, bustling space was all I could remember years later. But now–Dirt Candy is in a much, much larger space. It was quiet and relaxed on […]

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. […]

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 […]

Vegan Toasted Ravioli

Vegan Toasted Ravioli

Deep fried ravioli is as good as it sounds. And easy. Next time you are in the mood for simple and delicious, let some frozen raviolis thaw overnight in the refrigerator. You’ll likely be in the the same mood the next day. Deep fried ravioli, […]

Vegan New England, Part 3: True Bistro

Vegan New England, Part 3: True Bistro

Trying to get to Boston’s True Bistro for brunch before the wedding hadn’t worked out. And unfortunately so. This all-vegan restaurant has one spectacular brunch menu. Considering there was no way I was leaving Boston without trying their delicious-reading menu of high end fare, we […]

2010: The Year in Food

2010: The Year in Food

In the year 2010, more than any other, the camera was angled down, capturing flicks of food. Sure, there are people on the other side of the table. Had the camera lifted its head, it’d see. But for a gal who sorts time through food, […]

Old World Italian with a Vegan Menu

Old World Italian with a Vegan Menu

John’s Of 12th Street in Manhattan’s East Village, is a landmark of authentic Italian dining that’s been around since 1908. Stepping off East 12th street into the long narrow procession of starched white table clothes and napkins, you become a part of the pulse of […]

The Aphrodisiac Prix Fixe

The Aphrodisiac Prix Fixe

The regular menu at Pawtucket’s Garden Grille, a vegetarian restaurant north of downtown Providence, was wholly promising. I very much looked forward to dining there, the most asterisked entry of my Providence hit-list. But in town for heart-day, we would feast on their special 5-course […]

Giving Thanks, Part I

Giving Thanks, Part I

I am thankful for friends who value food. Holidays, like Johnny Dangerously, are just another excuse to gather the gang and to eat… and eat well. The hiatus-ed FoodSparrow and her dapper gent hosted a wonderful vegan Thanksgiving potluck over the weekend in their gorgeous […]

Irrational Love of the Beet

Irrational Love of the Beet

Dear Beets, I like the way you stay on my hands for hours, how peeling your earthened skin reveals the most vibrant purple-red. I think you invented purple-red. If I were born a root in the ground I, too, would grow the most vivid innards, […]

Birthdays and Nights.

Birthdays and Nights.

Although I was caught in the act of sneaking in my vegan chocolate stout cake to be served after dinner, Wok Man played the clueless part as best he could. Birthday dinner was at Lodge, one of the many eateries in the hub of Williamsburg, […]

Vegan Arizona Report

Vegan Arizona Report

Green 2240 N Scottsdale Rd # 8 Tempe, AZ 85281 (480) 941-9003 This adorable 100% vegan cafe seemed to congregate hipsters from Arizona’s woodwork (different hipsters, ones that smile at you) and rightfully so! Their “new American vegetarian” menu was jam-packed with options ranging from […]

Momma Mia, Here I Go Again

In yet another flour-heavy recipe, CandyPenny & I embarked upon mastering her Italian grandmother’s recipe for homemade raviolis. From scratch, us two stallionesses created a delectable pasta filled with bright green pesto. May we soon pass the recipe on to our respective cat and weasel. […]

A recipient of their weekly emailing, the menus of 4 Course Vegan have long been textually tempting my tummy. My arrival back in the States was the push needed to finally make a reservation. The dining concept was interesting: a weekly changing menu at a […]

Food Homecoming

Food Homecoming

Throughout my 8-week stay in Southeast Asia, I pined for New York comsumables as if long lost lovers. Foods that supplemented my hungry senses short walks or subway rides away ranked high on the collective pang unit of my new daily life. But, arriving to […]
