Wonder no More!

Pin It!

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 […]

Mysterious Absence

Pin It!

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?

The OTHER College Bar Scene

Pin It!

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 […]

A different Veggie Garden

Pin It!

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 […]

Sometimes, simple is best

Pin It!

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.

Muffins and vegan cheese and brussel sprouts… Oh my!

Pin It!

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. […]

Vegan Gumbo

Pin It!

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 […]

I am Cheesecake; Hear me Roar!

Pin It!

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 […]
