The Procrastinator’s Guide to a Vegan Thanksgiving

So today is my first day with my repaired laptop. I have my photos back and the ability to edit photos. You could say we have our blog back (it’s OK to say that)… just in time for one of the USA’s most beloved food tradition: Thanksgiving!  Some of us (me) might have fallen behind…

The Fakesgiving Feast Dogs

So I’ve been buried the past week in trying to fix all the little bugs with the new layout. Yes the menu is still wonky and there are a handful of duplicate past posts with crazy margins and fonts… but we’re getting there. I’ve also tried to re-enter the world the world again in way…

Seitan Stuffed Cabbage Dumpling Soup

I need to post about how we spent our weekend doing a cooking demo at The Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary July Jamboree. We have such great photos of the animals and people like Woodstock’s fabulous Jenny Brown and Gretchen Primack, author of Kind Poems. It’s coming I promise but instead I had this thing happen this…

Vegan Caldo Verde

So about a week ago we returned from our trip to Portugal. Why Portugal you ask? I mean it’s a legit question I guess. The story goes something like this. A few months ago, I was in the middle of a storm. Let’s call it that. A storm of everything. I was trying to figure…

Simple Vegan Italian Sausage & Pasta Dinner

You might know Michelle as the poster girl for Herbivore Clothing Company but honestly I consider her my good luck charm. Every time she comes…

Belgian Vegan Sweet Potato Stoemp with Sausages

They want to know if they will someday meet that one special someone Hollywood promised them in a million romantic comedies because they’re anxious to live that “how did you meet” story they’ll tell…

Herb de Provence Roasted Tofurky

  This is not news but it is very real. I am a hopeless Aaron Sorkin addict. Now this might seem strange considering he’s up there with Hemingway* when it comes to creating childish and confusing female characters** but I am shamelessly in love with the Sorkin universe. I want to live in a world where…

Smoky Hungarian Holiday Roast and Vegetables

2012 has been a pretty remarkable, confusing, kinda scary, sometimes magical and at times heartbreaking year. While 2013 will always be the year our book comes out and maybe when we finally take that trip to China, 2012 will be a year in my life that kinda felt like five. Ever have one of those…
