So where have I been? My sister goes to school in Boston, so my parents and I took a few days off from school/work to visit her. And a super-fun event just *happened* to coincide with our trip… . . . . . . . . . . First of all, kudos to Kati for […]
I won’t be blogging for the next week… but if you check back on October 26th, you’ll be rewarded with some great vegan-themed pictures to explain my whereabouts ;o) Anyone want to venture a guess?
As a college student, it sometimes feels as if I’m in a perpetual rush. There’s always another class, another party, or another study group to attend. I often find myself in need of a fast, portable snack… that’s where energy bars come in. Over the years, I’ve become quite the vegan-energy-bar connoisseur, having sampled a […]
Within 20 minutes of my house, there are two vegetarian restaurants with the SAME NAME! And no, they are NOT affiliated! Is that not one of the weirdest things you’ve ever heard? (Well, maybe not the weirdest, but still, it’s pretty weird!) I posted a few weeks ago about my most recent trip to Veggie […]
What to make on a rainy day, when you’ve been stuck in class and are in no mood to undertake some new frou-frou recipe? Time for a meal you KNOW won’t let you down– Pasta Marinara! My comfort food, with a side of perfectly-sautéed zucchini in olive oil and garlic.
Bananas for Bananas. This recipe has all the flavor and nutrition of moist, delicious banana bread, just in a different form. It also makes a great snack. . Nutritional Information: This banana version will have about 245 calories, 7 grams fiber, 7 grams protein, and 3 grams fat. The pumpkin version will have about 175 calories, […]
Although the plethora of cake posts on this blog may suggest otherwise, I am actually a very healthy eater. Above, dinner from the other night. I marinated a bunch of seitan in Jamaican Jerk sauce, then served it with quinoa pilaf, steamed broccoli, and a salad with tahini dressing. Healthy and delicious; no crumbs left. […]
As visions of Vegan Cakes danced in her head…
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 […]
