Vegetarian Times’ Pluot Cobbler

Vegetarian Times’ Pluot Cobbler

Before moving to California I’d never eaten a pluot before.  I wasn’t sure if they just weren’t available in Chicago, or if they didn’t even exist back then, but I did a little research and found this article, which explains what they are as well as their origin.

Peppered Cashew Goat “Cheese”

I thought I’d kick off Vegan MoFo with some vegan cheese!  If it weren’t for cheese, I think a lot of people could easily go vegan.  I used to LOVE cheese.  Who am I kidding – I still do!  I just don’t let myself eat it anymore.  Growing up in the Midwest, so close to [...]

Grilled Zucchini with Almond Feta & Madison’s Garden Dressing

The title of this dish is a mouthful, but it’s actually much simpler than it sounds.  It’s really just a mish-mosh of recipes I’ve been wanting to try for awhile now.  The first recipe is the Almond Feta with Herb Oil from the April edition of Vegetarian Times magazine.  This recipe takes patience, but most [...]
