Comments from the (chocolate-covered) Peanut Gallery

I love eating delicious food. And I love creating new recipes. But I don’t think I would consider myself a foodie: what I like about blogging and about making up recipes is the creativity involved.  I don’t watch cooking shows, don’t read cookbooks in my spare time, don’t spend hours upon hours thinking about food, […]

Soy-Haters Rejoice

Super-short post, because then I have to run. A few of you asked about a soy alternative for the Whipped Cream in a Bowl. Rejoice, my friends; an alternative does exist! Simply sweeten the plain Agar Pudding Base to your liking. Just because you don’t like soy shouldn’t mean you’re left out of all the fun.

Like Eating a Bowl of Whipped Cream

Remember 5-Minute Chocolate Mousse? It now has a baby sister. And just as decadent is the paler sister of  5-Minute Chocolate Mousse. This stuff is a-mazing! Seriously, it’s like eating an entire bowl of whipped cream! And although I’ve never had Greek Yogurt, I’m thinking that Vanilla Cream Mousse would make for a good vegan […]

Help for Haiti

I’m really short on time, but I wanted to quickly pass along a way to help raise money for those in Haiti: Donate to the Red Cross or text the number 90999, which charges $10 and goes toward the Red Cross as well. Sorry this post isn’t aesthetically-pleasing; I don’t have time for fun, fancy photos to enhance […]

The 3000-Calorie Post

2011 Edit: Recently, I discovered that some people have been using this post as a guideline for how (and how much) to eat. That made me really uncomfortable; I’m not a doctor nor a nutritionist, and I never made any claims that the food from this post represented a balanced daily diet. Also, as the […]

Two muffins are better than one ;). . Speaking of carbs… I’m finally getting around to posting the recipe […]

Describe your Perfect Date

Miss Rhode Island: That’s a tough one. I would have to say April 25th. Because it’s not too hot, not too cold, all you need is a light jacket. Vegan Thursdays Where we sit around and eat foods such as: Girl-Scout Cookie Bites Remember I told you the inspiration for Vegan Thursdays came from one […]

Vegan Thursdays, Take One

Cheated a bit and had this week’s Vegan Thursday on Wednesday so I could blog about it on Thursday. But of course I’ll still be eating vegan today (the real Vegan Thursday), too. Last night, I tried a new product and resurrected an old fave: Butternut fries! A big bowl of whole-wheat angel-hair pasta (tossed […]

Omnivores and Veganism

When I first started writing this, it was just meant to be a simple reply to a comment I received from someone interested in veganism (Hi Cecilia! *Waves*). But by the time I’d finished writing my answer to her question, I discovered I’d written so much that I should just turn my reply into a […]
