Everybody Loves Grains

(Everybody should, anyway.) Something (er, someone) else everybody should love? Heather! “Excited” doesn’t even begin to describe how I felt when the mailman brought me the following package from Heather: Old favorites (Chocolate love-in-a-jar spread, Jocalat bar), as well as some new fun finds. I was especially intrigued by the truffles… and boy, those babies didn’t disappoint! Chocolate-Covered […]

As visions of chocolate bunnies danced in her head…

Fondant did indeed make an appearance at my Easter. Saturday night, we went to a neighbor’s house for a pre-Easter gathering, and Blushing Bunny Cake tagged along. My mom and I worked together to make the Bugs Bunny Carrot Cake. She cooked it, and I decorated. Without a good vegan vanilla icing recipe, we came […]

Easter Round-Up

I don’t have time to write a fancy-schmancy post today, but I wanted to get something up for Easter. Easter Round-Up: 1. For all the vegans out there, as well as for people who just don’t want to be bothered with hiding real eggs (and hoping the kids find them before the dogs do!), check out […]

Call a Doctor, because I Falafel

(The jokes on this site get lamer every day.) Thanks to my friend, Near East Falafel Mix (pictured below), I’ve enjoyed quite a few yummy meals in the past few months. It’s fun to make the burgers, as you get to use your hands to form patties. Gives new meaning to the phrase “finger food.” The box claims to yield ten […]

(Book) Reporting for Duty!

When my friend Alisa asked me to review her cookbook for her, I excitedly agreed to the task. A well-known cookbook written by someone I actually know?!  But Alisa’s book, Go Dairy Free, is so much more than a cookbook. It also boasts an extensive guide to dairy substitutes and how to use them in recipes, a checklist […]

24-Carrot Gold

For the past few years, I’ve been volunteering as a dog-walker at a local shelter. Sadly, due to a time conflict this semester, I’ve given up that job.  But I feel incomplete if I’m not helping out somewhere.  Therefore, last week, I signed up to volunteer at a nursing home for an hour each week.  It’s not much, […]
