“Mexican Hat Dance” Tortilla Soup

¡Hola chispas de chocolate! Do you like Mexican Food? As a little girl, I hated it! Even after we moved to Texas, the home of Tex-Mex cuisine, I still loathed tacos, fajitas, and guacamole. Don’t get me started on jalapeños. And I don’t think I’d eaten an enchilada in my entire life! However, tastes change, and […]

Bread-free Vegan Stuffing

My Thanksgiving main dish was amazing! The mashed lentils acted almost like a thick gravy over the flavorful veggies.   Really, this is more like pot pie. But I already have a Vegan Pot Pie Filling. So for the above recipe title, I needed to get creative. Got creative with the actual recipe as well. […]

Does Harry Potter like Sweet Potatoes?

Are you excited about the new Harry Potter movie? I am! A few of my friends and I started an HP-watching marathon, where we’ve been getting together once or twice a week to watch the first six movies in preparation for the seventh (which comes out on November 19th). Last night I invited them over […]

Healthy Halloween

Dear litttle chocolate chips, Halloween is a scary time. And when I say scary, I’m not talking ghosts and goblins. With an overabundance of sugary sweets, Dracula isn’t the only fearsome foe for those trying to stick to a healthy diet. Below, some healthy Halloween recipes. So you can leave the scaring to the creepy crawlies! […]

Cravings

People ask me all the time: Are you ever tempted to eat non-vegan food?     For the first month after I became a vegetarian, meat cravings definitely hit! In fact, I can remember one specific time where I had my nose right up to a hamburger, thinking “Maybe I should just give in and […]

A recipe, but NOT for Peanut Butter

Fact: I love Butter. Huh? How exactly is that vegan, Miss Katie? No wait! I’m talking about the likes of Hot Chocolate Butter, not the dairy stuff. Then, there’s peanut butter, cashew butter, banana butter, almond butter, and—of course—coconut butter. Don’t forget cacao butter, which is not only an ingredient in many chocolate confections, it’s […]

Redefining Fast Food

Lately, I’m needing to come up with even quicker meals. Katie, your recipes are already quick and easy. How much simpler can they get? What about a meal in 5 minutes? Sorry to Rachael Ray, but 30 minutes to dinner sounds like a long time to me. Sometimes, 5 minutes is all you’ve got! The […]

Soy-Free Vegan Yogurt

No, I don’t eschew all soy. I believe that all most foods in moderation are perfectly fine. But that’s exactly the point: moderation. The problem with soy is that these days it’s in everything, from beverages to vitamins to Fritos! And unlike the Japanese, who have been reaping the health benefits of soy foods for […]

High-Protein Spaghetti??

I love little health-food stores. You can find things you’ve never seen before at the big ole Whole Foods. Case in point: spaghetti made entirely from black beans! Strange pastas just seem to find me; I’ve even seen chocolate pasta before. And you might recall my “mushroom spaghetti” post. Seeing how much I love pasta, […]

Vegan Dinner At Angelica Kitchen

NYC continued… Soon enough, after eating at Whole Foods, walking around Times Square, and exploring the amazing hotel, it was time for din-din. We journeyed to Angelica Kitchen, a vegan establishment in the East Village, for an early dinner (5PM). This left us plenty of time to get to Jersey Boys at 8. As soon […]
