    My Favorite Cookbooks + a giveaway!

    Every Friday during MoFo I’ll be doing Top 5 Fridays, where I will share 5 Vegan items that I like a bunch. I figured the great place to start would be with cookbooks, I use them all the time because frankly following someone else’s recipe is way easier than trying to figure out my own. I often find myself hungry…

    Cashew Alfredo with Soy Curls and Zucchini

    I definitely make a lot of the same dishes week after week for dinner mainly because I get better at making them so they only take a fraction of the time compared to making something new. One of our regular dinners is Cashew Alfredo but we mix it up by changing what we throw into it. My favorite version is…

    Viva La Vegan Grocery Review

    Scott and I spent the horrible L.A. heat wave this weekend in a car with no AC driving to Viva La Vegan Grocery in Rancho Cucamonga. It was worth braving the heat because I was on a mission to stock up on more soy curls and check out what new products they had in stock. We usually make 1 to 2…

    Soy Chorizo, Sweet Potato and Zucchini Tacos with Cashew Queso

    It’s Taco Tuesday! This super simple recipe features my favorite filling for tacos and Isa’s Cashew Queso which I’ve been obsessed with since she posted it on the PPK. I got the inspiration to make this taco filling after eating the delicious Soy Chorizo, Potato, and Zucchini taco filing vegan tacos at Hugo’s Tacos, and just swapped regular potatoes for sweet potatoes. You could…

    Breakfast Smoothie

    For the past two years, I’ve had a smoothie each morning for breakfast. I’m not the best about eating real food before noon so a smoothie works really great for me as it’s easy to throw together before I head out for work and I drink it at my desk while checking my email in the morning. I’m very much…

    Fun-employment

    For about the past month I’ve been unemployed while I wait to start my new full-time job (one of the downsides to working for film festivals is that most jobs are only contracted a few months so you usually have some employment gaps throughout the year), I’ve tried to keep busy and tackle some things on my to do list but still…

    Vegan Frankfurter Sausages!

    Originally posted July 5, 2012. For 4th of July our friends Susan and Lane threw a “Sausage Fest”, a BBQ with only sausage on the menu. I took this as a opportunity to try making steamed seitan sausages. Using this recipe from Isa at the PPK and a blend of spices from the PPK forums (I used the Frankfurters/hot dogs…

    Vegan “Roast Beef” Poboys!!

    My pals Shawn and Alix have the perfect house for movie watching and we prefer to watch our movies in marathon form. Last weekend we celebrated my better half’s early birthday with a marathon of the FAST AND FURIOUS films. I consider myself an indie, genre and foreign film fan so a big budget studio franchise is not normally the…

    Vegan King Cake!!

    Originally posted February 21, 2012. Today was Mardi Gras in New Orleans and the very first one that myself and Mr. Scott Green have missed. Feeling a little bummed to be missing the party, Scott made one of his amazing vegan king cakes. For those of you unaware, Scott revolutionized the vegan king cake market in New Orleans by putting…
