Adventures in Eggplant Bacon

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 life caught up with me. When you get sick like…

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. I had this whole post planned for today about how…

This recipe really is a very special soup we made using Upton’s Naturals NEW chicken seitan product (that is hitting stores this week) and I was eager to share it.

Everyone warns you that romance evaporates when you have a baby. They caution you to keep the spark alive in your marriage and to not let the baby darn you of that will to live. Seems a little dramatic to us but then again that hasn’t been close to our experience. Yes, we can’t dote…
