Christmas in the Raw.

Christmas in the Raw.

The holidays are typically a gluttonous time… the last hurrah of the year where many have a well-accepted excuse to dip into excess.  So this year, I choose to bring a raw dish to my parent’s home.  I made Raw Pad Thai using the list […]

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 […]

England’s Dreaming–High Tea and Tourist Attractions

England’s Dreaming–High Tea and Tourist Attractions

We are in London for many reasons. One of them is as tourists, another, for me, is as a vegan travel blogger. These two purposes would make up day one of our stay. Though jet-lagged and robbed of hours to sleep by the time difference, […]

More South Dakota and…State 47! V.V. in Nebraska!

More South Dakota and…State 47! V.V. in Nebraska!

First: The Sunflowers on I-90 in South Dakota. As I travel west on the I-90 a couple of days back, I noticed a dramatic yellow hue contrasting the prairie’s muted landscape on the eastbound side of the interstate. Sunflowers. I did some recon later on and […]

Another Long Island

Another Long Island

A visit to Elizabeth A. Morton National Wildlife Refuge in Sag Harbor is a walk back in time.  Trusting chipmunks eat from your hand.  Swans are shy and evade your camera. The tickling feet of bold songbirds perch your hand’s branch to select the best seeds.  […]

Summer Here, Berries

Summer Here, Berries

Pop-up Restaurants: Emma at Halyards

Emma, the vegan personal chef of Emma Eats Plants, does an all-vegan pop-up at Brooklyn’s Halyards Bar in Gowanus on Thursdays. (That sounds like some kind of mnemonic.) The weekly menu incorporates her Cuban roots and dedication to fresh, lively veganism. Thanks, Emma. Halyards is a […]

Streets of Philadelphia…

Streets of Philadelphia…

Enjoying a week off for winter recess, it was time to escape, however briefly, to new east coast vegan options. Philadelphia recently opened its first all vegan, all gluten-free bakery! And with the city being just a short ride away, CP and I made a […]

Vegan MoFo #25: Pacific Northwest Vegan Reporting: Seattle

Mighty O of Seattle. The best vegan donuts I’ve tried so far. Granted I have yet to hit any other solely vegan donut shop, I can’t see anyone having a more superior real donut than Mighty O. I got the glazed all the way to […]
