Saying Good Bye to My Number One.

Saying Good Bye to My Number One.

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…

I apologize for this long ranty post full of typos. I’m a little worked up. I have a recipe lined up to be posted today but I have to get this off my chest. Some of you who know me in real life have heard […]

Saying Good Bye to The XXX of XXXXXX Project… We hardly knew ye…

So Friday, a few hours after posting what we felt was very mildly-worded praise for an animal rights victory, we received an email with an attached pdf letter from someone representing The XXX of XXXXX asking that we no longer use their name on our […]

Citrus & Olive Oil Cake or Marmalade Cake if you’re feeling Old School

It’s been a bittersweet time in the world of animal lovers. Ringling Brother announced they were agreeing to retire their circus elephants from their traveling show in three years. This is obviously a remarkable landmark victory for animals used for entertainment. No more being chained […]

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!

  • Lime Wedges
Directions
  • Step 1 Open your pomegranate and gently remove all the seeds (arils) in a small bowl.

Chocolate Covered Vegan Coconut & Vanilla Bean Baby Doughnuts and an Open letter to Sylvester Stallone

Today’s post is kinda long. You can always just skip to the recipe at the end if you’re just here for the food. So it’s been over a month since we’ve posted but I swear we have a good excuse. If we’re friends on Facebook […]

Mini Pumpkin Spice Donuts with an Apple Glaze

I’ve been finding it really hard to explain what I did this weekend. I’m not sure where to even begin. I guess that’s why I’m posting this on Wednesday. See, I’ve been on the verge of an anxiety attack since last week… in a good […]

These are the Mini Chocolate-Covered Coconut Doughnuts you’re looking for.

These are the Mini Chocolate-Covered Coconut Doughnuts you’re looking for.

  We roasted our coconut but I think they would be just as good with raw coconut.   Note: Please see comments for some tips on this recipe. We recommend using coconut milk from a cartoon rather than a can in this recipe and if […]

Apple Churros to the Rescue!

Apple Churros to the Rescue!

Is there anything in the world as lovely as celebrating St.Patrick’s Day with a treat of traditional Spanish-style fried dough? According to Wikipedia (which as we know from watching Eddie Izzard stand-up, is extremely reliable): Churros are often sold by street vendors, who will often […]
