In the Gray of Things

In the Gray of Things

And just like that, 2018 is 1/12 done.  Here’s to the color in the gray. 1) Fire in the sky. 2.) A complicated vegetable sushi roll with greens and pickled things  3.) Summer-inspired vegan macarons from Confectionery! in the East Village: orange creamsicle, mango-lime, strawberry milk, […]

A Fond Farewell to Summer: Turns of the Season

A Fond Farewell to Summer: Turns of the Season

The Farmers Markets end.  I eat dinner in my classroom on Back to School night. (Kiku Sushi) Things get organized into colorful bins… …and I spray paint other things. The sunset grows more potent, weeping for the fall of its crown. (Long Beach, New York) […]

Bites of Time

Bites of Time

This picture was taken in June as a teacher pal and me rebelliously snuck out of a PTA-sponsored lunch for sundaes at Van Leeuwen. In some ways June seems like years ago. In other ways it remains piercingly vivid. I think I was in denial […]

Yankees Stadium (V)

Yankees Stadium (V)

The last time I was at a New York Yankees game was 11 years ago in the old stadium. And though sports rivalry can raise the stakes in an enjoyable way, this Mets fan doesn’t project repressed and misplaced anger upon sports franchises…or their fans. […]

Pretty London

Pretty London

It was a beautiful day in London. I had to step onto our balcony to see the bright blue. We let her tell us which way to look. A pretty litter… followed by sushi off a conveyer belt. (YO! Sushi) And the always-appreciated vegan options.

January Recap

January Recap

2016 is 1/12 complete. January is new routines inside old comforts, like the best vegan chocolate chip cookies: your own. It’s taking care… with a Long Island rec. center membership bonus: nobody in the sauna with you. It is having fire with the snow… with tempeh. It’s inspiration from […]

Walking in a Vegan Wonderland: Bryant Park Winter Village

Walking in a Vegan Wonderland: Bryant Park Winter Village

It isn’t a coincidence that there are a tons of vegan vendors in Bryant Park’s Winter Village. The owner of the company that organizes this annual set up of holiday shops around Bryant Park’s ice rink is a vegan. I found my way nearby and […]

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 […]

Heading For the ‘Frisco Bay / These Are a Few of My Favorite Things: <b>Bison</b>

Heading For the ‘Frisco Bay / These Are a Few of My Favorite Things: Bison

I never really spent much time in San Francisco. As a reporter of vegan food all about this great country, why wouldn’t I have spent more time in the very veg-friendly Bay Area? It just didn’t sit right with me. No need to fret. The […]

New (to me) New York City Vegan Eats

New (to me) New York City Vegan Eats

The Vakery is New York City’s latest vegan cupcake supplier! Though founder and pastry chef L.A. Brandon’s operation is via online ordering, I caught wind of her goodies being at Atlas Cafe in the West Village. I set out early for my cupcake breakfast, needed fuel […]

Forever West

Forever West

Cutting through the northern tip of the Rockies and passing over the Continental Divide, the I-80 west cuts through Wyoming’s southern mass in an predominantly undeveloped two-lane highway. For a gal used to the bustle of Brooklyn, the expanse of open space is unbelievable, almost […]

Food Love {Never Eat Your Heart Out} {Half Kidding}

Food Love {Never Eat Your Heart Out} {Half Kidding}

See this food? I have eaten it and it has helped me to move from here to there to have me here typing this to you. See it? I put it in my mouth and chewed. Yeah, so what but: Have you ever paid attention […]

VeganMoFo #6: Nosh/Notes From the Field

VeganMoFo #6: Nosh/Notes From the Field

Here is one you don’t see everyday. Soy & Sake‘s Hawaii roll has got fresh banana, avocado and Korean pear wrapped in sticky rice and topped with slithers of mango. It’s a great happy ending. This pan-Asian West Village spot also has a ton of […]

Neighborhood Eats

Neighborhood Eats

In my head, I’m still just visiting Brooklyn but I am reclaiming my home bite by bite. Williamsburg’s Alligator Lounge gives out free personal pizza pies with every drink purchase and has long been my compromise of convenience. But the flaked fixings still leave the […]
