Saying Good Bye to My Number One.

Saying Good Bye to My Number One.

You know when you bring them into your life that it’ll end like this. That cats and dogs don’t live as long as humans and that it would take an honest-to-God miracle for them to make to the old folks home with you. But you […]

Sometimes you get a cold and sometimes a cold gets you. If you don’t know what I mean by that – I hope you never do. But yeah I think the stress of the book coming out next week, having a little baby and ya know […]

Vegan Beer & Cheddar Bread

Vegan Beer & Cheddar Bread

So I’ve been on a baking kick lately. Maybe it’s because I know summer will be here soon and I want to use my oven as much as possible before the infamous heat dome lowers onto New York City. Maybe it’s because I love bread. […]

When a blogger announces that they’re no longer vegan…

Simplest Red Fruit Salad ever & some of our favorite Summertime recipes!

Love is red fruit...
Love is red fruit…

Life, our book and travel to foreign lands have kept us away. We have a guest post and several recipes waiting to be posted and shared with the world but today I need to work on the book — so I’m posting a 4 ingredient treat in time for all those picnics, potlucks and BBQs coming up this weekend. This one is dedicated to that friend who always brings beer and salsa. This is a recipe* that even they can make.

But if you’re more of a superstar than that — you can click here to see a list of some of our favorite Summertime recipes and potlucking tips or you can check out some of these:

Cherry Cola BBQ Vegan Chicken Wings
Antipasto Pasta Salad
Curry Vegan Chicken & Potato Salad
Burger & Veggie Packet
The Cruelty-Free Crawfish Boil
The Chicago Beer Dogs
Apple Churros
BLT Crostinis

Of course, if you are firing up the grill this weekend we can’t encourage you enough to try The Beer Can Tofurky! I know it seems a little intimidating but I hope this appetizing post by The Redundant Vegan will encourage you to take this vegan wonder on!

I have a great post lined up for tomorrow that I still need to edit the photos for so until then… enjoy this simple pleasure!

 

Simplest Red Fruit Salad

  • 1 Small Watermelon (cubed – should make 3-4 cups)
  • 1 Large Ripe Pomegranate
  • 3 Tablespoons Fresh Mint Leaves (diced)
  • Lime Wedges

Open your pomegranate and gently remove all the seeds (arils) in a small bowl.

In a large bowl, gently toss watermelon, pomegranate seeds and mint and pour into an airtight container. Put the fridge for 3 hours.

Serve chilled and with lime wedges on the side to squeeze over the top if you’re into that kinda thing.

See you tomorrow! XO

* Feel weird calling this a recipe… it’s more like a tossed bowl of awesome combo.
