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…

Vegan Sesame Chicken Wonton Soup & Saying ‘Good Bye’ to Mr. Spock

Today’s post is long. So very very long. I wanted to post this recipe for Chinese New Year. 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.

Maybe we’d watch a video or two on how to make your puff pastry puff…

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…
