Vegan Cuts Snack Box Review!

Vegan Cuts Snack Box Review!

Have you heard of Vegan Cuts?  They offer great deals on vegan products, as well as monthly snack and beauty boxes.  They were kind enough to send me the March snack box to review.  Let’s get right to the goods! Since I’m such a sweets addict I decided to start off the review with these [...]

St. Paddy’s Day Eats – “Shepherd’s Stew”

St. Paddy’s Day Eats – “Shepherd’s Stew”

Thanks to a brilliant idea from Ryan, I turned our Irish Steak and Stout Stew into Shepherd’s Pie last night.  I was going to top the stew with pastry crust and make Colcannon to serve on the side.  After making the stew and mashing the potatoes Ryan asked if it would be crazy to just [...]

Oscars 2013 – Part 2

Oscars 2013 – Part 2

Right on the heels of Part 1 of my Oscar post comes Part 2!  Here’s the “Argochoke Dip: Go Cluck Yourself”, which I posted about a few weeks ago.  This was a big hit.  We had a couple vegetarians at the party, but no other vegans.  In case you’d be worried to serve this to [...]

Betty Goes Vegan Review Part 3 – Girlfriend’s Mock Chicken Salad

Betty Goes Vegan Review Part 3 – Girlfriend’s Mock Chicken Salad

This recipe from Betty Goes Vegan was easy and SO delicious.  I loved the bright lemon flavor, and I don’t think I would have thought to use lemon juice in a mock chicken salad.  It’s so good!  I used to not be a fan of celery in pretty much anything, but it was great in [...]

Betty Goes Vegan Review Part 2 – Artichoke Newburg

Betty Goes Vegan Review Part 2 – Artichoke Newburg

I’m back with another recipe from Betty Goes Vegan.  Since I made something sweet last time, I decided to go the savory route this time. I should start by saying that I’ve never had Lobster Newburg, the dish that this one is based on.  Because of that, I can’t really speak to how similar this [...]

Quick Noodles with Kale & Tofu – Updated

Quick Noodles with Kale & Tofu – Updated

While making this the other night, I realized that I’ve changed a few things in this recipe but never updated you guys.  Ryan and I love this meal so much that we probably make it once every couple weeks.  I usually don’t mix it up too much, but I found myself out of the noodles [...]

Quinoa, Corn & Black Beans

Quinoa, Corn & Black Beans

Hi, guys!  I’m slowly coming out from under the craziness that is having a newborn baby to care for, and I actually have a minute to write up a post.  I hope to have more time before another two months (or more… ahem) goes by. Let me start by saying that if you have any [...]

Portland – Part 2

Portland – Part 2

In my last Portland post I brought you up to speed on the first couple days of our trip.  Sunday I was in workshops all day for Vida Vegan Con, and as a result, I was totally wiped out that evening.  So we ended up just wandering around the neighborhood near the hotel (which is [...]

Portland – Part 1

Portland – Part 1

Ryan and I got to Portland Friday morning, and after an early check-in, some unpacking and map-studying, we hit the ground running.  We started at Hungry Tiger Too and had some nachos and tofufuffalo wings (tofu buffalo wings).  Ryan was able to kick off his craft beer tour of Portland, and I was in heaven [...]

Vegan Pan-bagnat

Vegan Pan-bagnat

Before I was vegan, one of my favorite sandwiches was the Pan-bagnat at Vie de France.  I don’t think they offer it anymore, but it was basically tuna, green beans, and salad greens all drenched in an amazing garlic dressing.  The best part was the french bread it was served on – it was like [...]

Smokey Steak Sandwich with Garlic Spiced Potato Chips

Smokey Steak Sandwich with Garlic Spiced Potato Chips

For today’s Meatless Monday post I wanted to once again show you guys that just because you go meatless doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice the flavors and textures of the foods that you love.  You can very easily swap them out for much-better-for-you-and-just-as-tasty vegan versions! This Smokey Steak Sandwich is a perfect example, and [...]

Guest Post: Veggie Risotto

Guest Post: Veggie Risotto

For my second guest post I enlisted the help of my friend, Molly Erdman, one of the funniest ladies I know, and a great cook to boot!  You have to check out her fantastically awesome blog, Catalog Living, one of the only things out there that actually makes me laugh out loud.  Molly isn’t vegan, [...]

Lemon Asparagus

Lemon Asparagus

When it comes to aphrodisiac foods, asparagus is the king!  I think that we can all see why people throughout history have given this vegetable that honor, and I mean that literally… I debated serving the spears with the classic drizzle of a hollandaise sauce, but I just didn’t feel like having to wash the [...]
