Pieces of Downtime

Pieces of Downtime

Flying over the sandbar that is home. Raspberry alien hands: I’ve always wanted to do this. Delicious vegan Halloween candy from Justin’s and Unreal. Soup weather–or at least it was last week: Red Pepper and Corn Chowder.

Teton Chaser

Teton Chaser

Everything in Jackson, Wyoming revolves around the Tetons. And proving this, I spent my day finding a variety of ways and circumstances in which I could see the Tetons. Starting at the crack of dawn. The striking hues of a beautiful sunrise can do pretty fantastic things to […]

Bountiful

Bountiful

With autumn comes a whole new set of seasonal veggies. I anticipate this change in the fruit and vegetable racks in my local grocer like how some other do clothing lines, a new sneaker, or tickets for whatever millennial-deep (puddle) marketing exec-made “musician” who doesn’t […]

Soup Season Starts Now!

Soup Season Starts Now!

If you’re like me, you follow strict soup seasons. And autumn is the start of soup time! So I am finally making a recipe from Nava Atlas’s Vegan Soups and Hearty Stews For All Seasons, a years-old gift from The Electrician. I started with a parsnip […]

Final Day: Vegan Eats on Holland America Cruise Advice

Final Day: Vegan Eats on Holland America Cruise Advice

With one more day of being vegan on Holland America’s Oosterdam, I made sure to try everything I could for you, dear blog. And because I would have loved to been able to know this vegan intel prior to boarding, I’m going to lay it […]

Haines, Alaska / Vegan on Holland America Cruise, Day 4

Haines, Alaska / Vegan on Holland America Cruise, Day 4

After several days at sea it was very exciting to disembark finally. The first port was Haines, Alaska, a sleepy, small city (number of graduating high school seniors in 2015: sixteen) with plenty of natural beauty and wildlife. The kind of stuff people come to […]

It’s a Helluva Day at Sea, Sir / Vegan on Holland America Cruise, Day 2

It’s a Helluva Day at Sea, Sir / Vegan on Holland America Cruise, Day 2

Today was our only day at sea without Alaskan scenery, not counting the glorious expanse of lapping waves that we are riding on. It was a day to explore the ship, to relax, to eat. The cruise seems far less booked than the other cruises […]

Bit by Bite

Bit by Bite

One can measure the the veg-friendliness of a city on many things. I suppose I have my own algorithm. Part of my measure: if vegan options penetrate mainstream “normy” places, like sports stadiums and airports. So in both of these arenas, San Francisco is decidedly veg-friendly. AT&T […]

Sweet, Sweet Indy

Sweet, Sweet Indy

Some stops I just can’t resist. A mostly-vegan bakery inside an office building in downtown Fort Wayne, Indiana, a city with a dearth of vegan offerings, was one such stop: Pembroke Bakery & Cafe. Being this was my first bite of food today, I bought […]

Vegan Borscht

Vegan Borscht

Ever notice how most good recipes being with olive oil, chopped onion and garlic? It’s like the holy trinity. Ok, maybe not. Then–beet. Chunks of the magenta gems sweating it out with good company. Since I got a personal sized crock pot for work I’ve […]

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 […]

Summer in Paris, Lovely Lagusta’s Savory Dinner Series

Summer in Paris, Lovely Lagusta’s Savory Dinner Series

It seems like eons ago that Ms. CP sent me a link to chocolatier Lagusta’s (of Lagusta’s Luscious fame) savory dinner series. Since then I have been occasionally pouring over the menu highlights of our reserved Summer in Paris dinner. What can be better than being […]

Live Free Or Die.           (Vegan New Hampshire, Day 2)

Live Free Or Die. (Vegan New Hampshire, Day 2)

I love New England. This I knew but had forgotten. As the hours of watching the scenery went by, I remembered. Here are some food highlights from our Day 2 in New Hampshire. Spoon Revolution is Concord, New Hampshire’s only all-vegan eatery. They offer a […]

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. […]

Dumpling Soup

Dumpling Soup

This week’s lunch needs to be simple and hearty. It needs all my servings of vegetables; it needs carbohydrates. Most of all it needs taste. With Herbs de Provence, a vegetable bouillon, rosemary, fresh parsley and more basil, the thick soup packs a flavor punch […]

Food & Song

Food & Song

The cold weather means a weekly batch of soup. Soul-warming soup. We’re still here in autumn so here is a preview of my looming soup-a-thon, a scrumptious carrot and coconut milk soup in autumn’s color. Acorn squash stuffed with wheat berry, pecans, cranberry and green […]

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 […]

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 […]

Bare Pantries, Part 1

Bare Pantries, Part 1

It’s time to clear out the pantry and put to use the season’s leftover ingredients. This is first in a series of pantry cook fest postings: Pumpkin coconut and shallot soup, from the ton of puree from processing my Halloween pumpkin. Seitan loaf, stir-fried. I […]

Br♥♥klyn Vegetarian, Part 2: Prospect Heights/Prospect Lefferts Garden

On a blustery December morning, the first of its kind, 3 intrepid souls wandered into the depths of Brooklyn by hoof for Part 2 of a thorough borough scour of veggie delights. Congregating at the gorgeous Brooklyn museum of Art, we headed down Washington avenue […]

Le Pain Quotidien (say like Pepe La Pew)

Le Pain Quotidien (say like Pepe La Pew)

It is most definitely soup weather. Rustic, roof-scratching bread weather too. Luckily Le Pain Quotidien, the global high-end chain, is a few doors down from the mysteriously closed Peacefood Cafe and was able to satisfy my hankering. I meant to include La Pain’s Upper East […]

VeganMoFo #19: Medieval Times?

VeganMoFo #19: Medieval Times?

Yes, Medieval Times has vegan options. It was mostly irony that compelled me to partake in their Birthday Fellowship deal, which entitled me to free admission. And luckily I knew an enthusiastic group willing to partake in the tournament and dinner show in the castle […]

Must-eat Day Trip series, Number 3 A blog series featuring the country’s best upscale vegan restaurants. There is a New York that is not New York City, not a surrounding suburb and not within the its commuter path. Many call it all “upstate”, simplifying it […]
