These delightful little gems are straight from our garden. . . . . . . . . . . . . After brainstorming all sorts of possible uses for the peppers, I decided on something I’ve been wanting to try for a while– Gumbo. I found a recipe in one of my mom’s cookbooks and […]
Hello to everyone in Blogland! My name is Cheesecake… except I’m not really cheesecake, because I am made out of tofu. But please don’t discriminate against me, as I taste even more delicious than “real” cheesecake (and I am much healthier for you!). Here I am in all my glory. Don’t pay any attention to […]
I have an affinity for arts and crafts. I also happen to love cake. Sometimes these two interests combine, and when they do, here is the result: Above, a cake I decorated for our new neighbors Happy Easter! A Jungle-themed party I threw Cupcakes for my mom’s class (she’s a Special Ed teacher) Red velvet […]
This little vegan went to market. This little omni stayed home. This little vegan had chocolate cake and a creme-filled cupcake. This little scavenger had none. This little vegan got 4 chocolate bars. And these little piggies got none. (Do you see a trend?)
I’m hungry! What do you have for me to eat? Sorry, Henry. Nothing for you. My friend and I tried out a new vegetarian restaurant this past weekend, called New Start Veggie Garden. The small plate has noodles cooked in sesame oil, and the big plate has red bean soup with rice balls, tofu lasagna, […]

Just had the most amazing vegan Ethiopian food! See all of this food? This is the Vegetarian Sample Platter. By the time I was done, it was ALL gone (including the rather large sourdough crepe– called “injera”– on which the food was served). I also ate some of the veggies on my dad’s plate. I […]
…Just kidding! Maybe someday ;o).
What do you serve on those days when you’re soooo busy with everything else that there’s no time to even think about—let alone make—a gourmet meal? The following are two recipes I know I can count on; they’re both easy, quick to make, and taste delicious. (Of course, stir fries and pasta marinara are two […]
I’ve loved learning more about some of the other bloggers out there, so now it’s my turn to share about me by listing a character trait for each letter of my first name– Katie. K is for kind. As a vegan, I guess this one is a given. In my life, I’ve rescued and nursed […]
And life in the Kingdom is gooooood! Our first Royal Subjects are Mr. and Mrs. Coconut Cake, a.k.a. my snack from a few days ago. They hail from a local vegetarian restaurant. Let’s meet our other Subjects, shall we? Today’s snack– Mr. and Mrs. Chocolate-Hazelnut cake, who hail from the same county as The Coconuts. […]
Dinner tonight: New Farm Mac and Cheeze (with some spinach mixed in), sauteed mushrooms in olive oil and garlic, steamed green beans, and a glass of chilled mango juice (not pictured). My macaroni of choice tonight was Vitaspelt baby shells. I loved every bite (and sip)! And for dessert… Amazing homemade peanut butter cookies, baked […]
Presenting the mini tofu quiches from fatfreevegan.com! I’m sure you’ve all seen these before on other blogs. If you haven’t made them yet, I highly recommend you do so (and you’ll want to make a double batch because these babies go fast)! Here they are, uncooked and ready to go into the oven. And here’s […]
My parents aren’t vegetarian, but they’ve been so supportive, over the years, of my lifestyle. They’re always up for tasting vegan food, and my soy-o-phobic mom recently switched to Silk in her coffee!!! I’m the luckiest girl in the world! I know I’m supposed to be the animal lover… but there’s NO WAY I’d let […]
