Vacation in New York City

Vacation in New York City

Oh that? That’s a steak tartare from the all-vegan French place in the West Village, Delice & Sarrasin. I took a vacation in my city, making an occasion of booking a hotel room in Times Square for a friend’s birthday celebration. On the way in… […]

“But you’re still the one pool where I’d happily drown.”

“But you’re still the one pool where I’d happily drown.”

Sometimes I go to… New York.  And, despite our long history, I treat it like someone new–like how you are at the start of a relationship. I give it a new chance to win my heart (which, admittedly, I fork over and over and over […]

The Canon G9X reminds me of my grandfather’s old camera, especially in this nifty case. It’s a great camera, but there’s no viewfinder… which kind of kills the whole nostalgic feel of it.  But it sure takes a pretty picture. Another go at the Sprinkles […]

And after peeping her menus from her multiple vegan restaurants for many years, I was finally sitting in Karyn’s on Green, ready for Saturday brunch. I had the Breakfast Sliders: two delicious Belgian waffles for a bun, their yummy butternut squash “bacon,” a […]

Sweet Teeth

Sweet Teeth

The week is easier with sweet snacks.A baby vegan cupcake from Sprinkles… And a bag of almond cookies from High Hopes Vegan Bakery, the ridic-delish Etsy shop based out of my own Long Island.  Besides being the type of gal who orders herself a bag of […]

Manhattan Vegan Option Cupcake Crawl!

Sometimes–in the world of restaurants–a lone “vegan option” beats an “all-vegan” menu. But would this be true of bakeries too? On a bright Saturday afternoon, a friend and I accumulated research on this query, visiting 6 omnivorous bakeries in the isle of Manhattan in the […]
