    Kitchen Wishlist Items

    This week’s top 5 are the items on my wish-list for the kitchen. I’ve survived for a long time without them so I guess I really don’t NEED them but I feel like each of these items will make my life easier and my food taste better (that’s how kitchen appliances work, right?) 1. Zojirushi Neuro Fuzzy Rice Cooker –…

    VeganMoFo Blog Love

    This week has been a bit more hectic at work so I haven’t been able to do much recipe blogging but I’ve been making some recipes that I found on other VeganMoFo blogs. MoFo has been great at introducing me to some new (to me) blogs and I have loved seeing some of the amazing recipes other people have come…

    Red Beans and Rice

    One of my favorite foods is Red Beans and Rice. Growing up in New Orleans, I was not a huge fan of a lot of the traditional cuisine (and that was before I went Vegan) but Red Beans and Rice was always my favorite. I could probably eat this every day of the week and not get tired of it.…

    Cruelty-Free Products I Love

    It’s Top 5 Friday! Today I am building off an earlier post about living a vegan lifestyle, and sharing 5 more cruelty-free products that I’m pretty excited about: 1. Schmidt’s Deodorant in Bergamot + Lime – if you’ve been following along for MoFo you will know I just scored some of this two weeks ago when I went to Viva…

    Jackfruit BBQ

    Last night was my first night attempting to make jackfruit BBQ the results were delicious even if we just ate a big plate of brown. My initial plan was to make a more elaborate bowl with a bunch of veggies, sweet potatoes, beans and jackfruit BBQ, but I ended up getting home late and went the easier route of only…

    I’m a Former Salad Hater

    Just about everyday I eat a salad at work. This may seem like a perfectly normal thing to eat for lunch but until I moved to Los Angeles, I hated salad and refused to eat it. I can’t remember exactly why I was so averse to eating salads, it probably had something to do with the fact that I had…

    Dinner Share: Bun Dau Hu Chien

    My pal Alix set up a weekly dinner share with myself and our friend Susan, each week we make 3 servings of a meal and then meet up at one of our houses to swap food. So each week I get two amazing cooked meals that all I need to do is reheat, which is really great when I’m exhausted…

    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┬áin 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…
