Dear Women,

Dear Women,

It is so wonderful to see social media swarmed with images from one of the many marches for women that took place yesterday, to see so many coming together to speak up for our human rights. I hope that this is a start of something… […]

Cheese Your Hunger Away: Vegan Combos

Cheese Your Hunger Away: Vegan Combos

After updating this site’s F.A.Q., I decided I needed to veganize Combos, since no one else had. Much like meat ravioli, this is an untapped market in the vegan world. Using a recipe for hard pretzels and a non-vegan homemade vegan attempt from the world wide web […]

Nabisco Marshmallow Sandwich Cookies

Nabisco Marshmallow Sandwich Cookies

I’ve written about these cookies before, a cookie so ingrained in my memory that I can still vividly experience them. From the shuffling through the brown paper grocery bag, as tall as me, in the backseat of my mother’s car to find and be the first […]

First Love, Santosha

First Love, Santosha

Though this storefront is innocuous, I peer through its ground level glass and see the back of my head, 19 years ago. A fork in my mouth and a look of–well–contentment on my face. But with confusion. Tofu. Not a cold, wet yet strangely dry slab of […]

Vegan-ish Hiking Boots

Vegan-ish Hiking Boots

A lot of shoes are made from animals. With a trip to Yellowstone coming up, I needed some vegan hiking boots. Here is my research in case it helps. To note: I was searching for women’s mid-cut hiking boots, so my list does not include low-cut […]

TBT: National Parks

TBT: National Parks

My latest plan is to get to every national park in the country in my lifetime. At this point I have only seen 10 of 49. I’ve included my throwbacks to link to my Parks progress page from my homepage. Though some were visited in the […]

Ponyboy

Ponyboy

Falling back, the glorious autumn sunset coincides with my drive home from the train station. This sky had me snapping pictures towards my neighbor’s house in creepy fashion. It made me think of Ponyboy Curtis. {Then I thought about how lucky I was to come […]

Throwback Thursday: 2005 Vegan Restaurant Guide

Throwback Thursday: 2005 Vegan Restaurant Guide

Such a trip to look at this guide from 10 years ago. To see my checkmarks. I had to update it. It is nice to see that many eateries are still around!

Throwback Thursday: Oregon 2000+

Throwback Thursday: Oregon 2000+

Portland used to be a quick 2-hour drive from home when I lived in Seattle in 2000. Back then, the city was far less vegan-friendly to this vegan. It was Blossoming Lotus where I got a good meal, which is still going strong. But I more […]

Throwback Thursday: Thai Crepe, 2005

Throwback Thursday: Thai Crepe, 2005

When I started to like food a whole lot, Thai was one of my favorite cuisines. Excuse this glistening picture, but Thai Crepe, sweet turnip in rice noodle, is one of my favorite Thai eats. But the appetizer is rarely on Thai menus! Back in my Brooklyn […]

Throwback Thursday: Google Cafeteria, 2008

Throwback Thursday: Google Cafeteria, 2008

The Google cafeteria–amazing free food everyday. This was the way to push kids to pay attention in science and math class. I visited with a group of 9th graders back in 2008. But I signed something and never wound up posting all the pictures I […]

Throwback Thursday: My Dealings with Vegan Cake, 2004+

Throwback Thursday: My Dealings with Vegan Cake, 2004+

I specially ordered this banana-encased vegan cake and dropped it off at Red Bamboo for them to serve us after dinner. Unfortunately I don’t recall who I ordered it from. Are you out there, cake maker? My old co-workers got me this vegan cake back […]

Throwback Thursday: Chicago, 1999+

Throwback Thursday: Chicago, 1999+

I first ate at Chicago Diner in 1999 when I was driving cross country to settle in Seattle, Washington. Though I am not 100% sure I picked up this menu at that time, it’s all I got to remember this early visit. Before I blogged […]

Throwback Thursday: Foodswings, 2004

Throwback Thursday: Foodswings, 2004

n 2004 when I moved into my old apartment in Brooklyn, I tried to walk to Foodswings. The BQE got in the way and my phone was certainly not smart enough to tell me how to get there. I went back and ordered Chinese. I eventually […]

Throwback Thursday: ‘Snice, 2007

Throwback Thursday: ‘Snice, 2007

‘Snice was my favorite lunch spot within walking distance from my old job in Chelsea. I always got the Vegan Panini, which scraped up the roof of my mouth. Because it ain’t love if it don’t hurt a little.

Blue Backdrop, and one more meal

Blue Backdrop, and one more meal

The time-worn signage of cities less invaded by Big Box is like a living antique. Its hearkening charm is one of the many things I enjoy about getting out of the metropolitan area. The color combinations, fonts, materials hold character. They hold on to something that’s gone.  […]

Farm Sanctuary / Watkins Glen Vegan Ops

Farm Sanctuary / Watkins Glen Vegan Ops

Maywood Pancake House, in Maywood, New Jersey, is kind of a second location of Rutherford Pancake House (blog report on their vegan challah French toast is here). Both locations feature vegan breakfast options, which is far more a special than lunch or dinner options.  I was […]

Throwback Thursday: Bloodroot, 2007

Throwback Thursday: Bloodroot, 2007

I’ve been to Bloodroot, the feminist bookstore and restaurant in Bridgeport, CT, several times–the last being this time in 2007. I have never blogged about it because the food is pretty basic. But having visited the music store / vegan cafe, I thought I’d throw back […]

Throwback Thursday: Menu Mementos

Throwback Thursday: Menu Mementos

Back before I was as obsessed with vegan food reporting, I simply ate at vegan spots and didn’t write about it— I know: gasp! That and this here blog didn’t exist. But I still collected menu mementos of some of the spots I ate. Here […]

If this was the 90’s…

If this was the 90’s…

…when I didn’t know how to cook, I’d find Long Island’s vegan options much more appetizing. But, once in awhile, “90’s vegan” serves as a nostalgic reminder of my history. Take The Witches Brew in West Hempstead… Last time I was there, I looked like […]

Holding On to Summer (Photo Release)

Holding On to Summer (Photo Release)

Though I am knee-deep in planning for September, I am holding on tight to the Summer. In the backyard, Black-eyed Susans attract the bees… and other bugs who take nibbles.  “She will feed you tomatoes and radio wires.” The garden is looking a bit chaotic. […]

Sassy’s <i>Eat This</i>

Sassy’s Eat This

I used to check Sassy out at the library when I was a little girl. I eventually started a subscription once I got a checking account, which was the only way I could pay for mail order records. The magazine had a page at the end called […]
