The Season’s First Chili!

The Season’s First Chili!

Sure, it’s freezing outside. Mounds of snow complicate walking and driving and dressing. ….But it’s chili time!   What I love about chili is how you can throw the kitchen sink in… then throw the kitchen sink on top of it.  It is a vehicle for […]

Out & About London on my Birthday

Out & About London on my Birthday

After two days of walking about London, we bought an Oyster Card and went to the underground. Our room is just a couple of minutes from Baker Street station, of Baker Street (the song) fame, which plays eerily from some unknown source. The London Underground is […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Midwest Vegan, Day 3

Midwest Vegan, Day 3

Morning in Sparta, Wisconsin started with a much anticipated roadside attraction: the fiberglass mold graveyard on the grounds of FAST (or the Fiberglass Animals, Shapes, and Trademarks Corp.) The owner is fine with you wandering around at your own risk—perusing the molds and taking pictures–and so we did. […]

{Super Bowl 48 Eats Pictorial}

Guacamole on guacamole action. I made more of that spectacular date caramel from Fork and Beans because I had a ton of dates staring at me every time I opened the fridge. and because I’d be partaking in a ton of savory bites. I fed the […]

Inside-out Arepas

Inside-out Arepas

I recently bought a huge thing of corn flour. I needed to use some for a gluten-free recipe and was left with a ton. Since I don’t like things sitting around the pantry too long, I looked into how to use a whole bunch of […]

Super. Vegan. Products.

Super. Vegan. Products.

Instead of looking at Tom Brady’s big head, I am blogging during the Super Bowl. I made killer nachos with some goodies from Vegan Essentials knowing things would be a little hectic at The Electrician‘s. First, Wayfare Mexi Cheddar cheese… this was the only flavor that […]

Vegan on the Jersey Shore, Part 1: Karma Cafe

Living in the shiny apple of the Tri-state area, I don’t get to New Jersey very often. But in the search of sun and sustenance not-so far from home, I was surprised at how plenty the Jersey Shore was with vegan options. It was time […]

Holy de Mole

Holy de Mole

It was time to find more vegan options in Queens. With a good friend moving to Woodside, we took occasion to explore a vegan lead for dinner… Woodside’s De Mole. As we entered the dimly lit restaurant, I was eager to sit down. For squeezed between […]

7 Layers of Mexican-inspired Stuff [Mexican Lasagna?]

Loving the way I cut last week’s lasagna into four perfect sectors for the week, I wanted to this week’s lunch to also be a visual representation of my count-down to week’s end. Next week is mid-winter recess and I am off. So here it […]

New Years Eve Dinner: MMX meet I

New Years Eve Dinner: MMX meet I

he couch is a nice place to welcome in the New Year, especially when one has drastically altered their sleep schedule since the start of winter break. Head-bobbing by 11:15 p.m. and already hung over, dinner in was a deterrent to an unproductive morning after: […]

Na-cho Ordinary Nachos

Na-cho Ordinary Nachos

  Whipped up a batch of vegan nachos… mostly to utilize the cheese whiz-type stuff I made a couple of weeks back for the Phillies ballpark jaunt. Although I completely forgot to ground up some Amy’s burgers for the protein, they were very good! I […]

Food… Kind of a Big Deal

Food… Kind of a Big Deal

As a lover of food, I need to know it deeply. I want to. I’m reading Stuffed & Starved, The Hidden Battle for the World’s Food System. It’s moving me in many ways. Firstly, it has been awhile since I have had the opportunity to read […]

Vegan in the MKE

Vegan in the MKE

I’ve blogged a good deal about vegan options in Wisconsin, the land of cheese and fish frys (see here and here). Contrary to the state’s license plate, there is plenty to eat for dairy-free cheeseheads. Particularly, the small city of Milwaukee continues to impress my […]
