Happy Herbivore’s Vegan Rice Pudding

June 30, 2010

Happy last day of June!  That means my birthday is in 18 days (July 18th)!  I’m trying really hard to get psyched about it this year, simply because I miss birthdays being fun.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m thrilled to have lived another year, but ever since 21 it’s just felt like another day.  I…

Christy Robinson Vegan Jewelry

June 29, 2010

Ever since I ventured out of the food section into accessories on one of my favorite vegan online stores last year, I’ve wanted a Christy Robinson necklace.  Her fabulous designs use largely recycled materials and the majority of them incorporate a vegan or eco-friendly message.  And they’re very affordable.  Love, love, love. I don’t know…

The Vita-Mix Gets Nutty: Homemade Vegan Milks And Nut Butters

If you haven’t already checked it out, I’m so excited my guest post is up today on The Blissful Chef!  Thank you to everyone who stopped in to read it and to Christy for allowing me a few words on her space.  Christy also has a new ecookbook available today, The Blissful Chef – Cooking…

Keri’s Vegan Cookies And Other Treats

Do you ever eat something veganized and wish everyone could taste it and just understand all food is better this way?  Okay, that’s how I feel about everything I eat, but it was especially so with Friday’s lunchtime sandwich.  Replacing the saturated-fat-and-suffering-laden bacon with smoked tempeh strips only makes the classic BLT better!  I used…

Win Other People’s Stuff

June 25, 2010

And by that I mean, I’m not giving anything away.  I would love to and all, but I’m broke and I haven’t had any companies banging on my inbox trying to hock their wares lately.  (Note to companies: my people want your free stuff.)  Since I can’t currently provide you with free vegan awesomeness, I…

Raw Vegan Zucchini Noodles Alfredo

June 24, 2010

I have so much to do tonight, but I really just feel like crashing.  It’s been a go-go-go month and I’m ready to just stop, sit on my butt, and watch a good documentary or two!  We’ll see if the “house needs cleaned” guilt gets to me enough to rouse me out of this vegetative…

Peanut Butter Chocolate Pillow Vegan Cookies Invade My Cookie Jar

June 24, 2010

Remember a long time ago I had a dream?  Well, I didn’t forget about it.  Be my child a hoodlum, my career path come to a dead halt, but gosh darn it, I’m making all of those cookies!  No, I’m just kidding.  I don’t have a career path.  Anyway, I think these bad boys may…

ED&BV Teriyaki Quinoa And Creamy Vegan Cashew Dip

June 23, 2010

I feel so behind!  I have too many days worth of food pictures to include in one post, so maybe I’ll just do some highlights.  A few days ago I made a big batch of Averie’s cinnamon nooch popcorn to snack on.  It’s so good.  I wasn’t sure cheezy cinnamon sounded like a good combination,…

Vegan In Chicago: Handlebar

Vegan In Chicago: Handlebar

Tuesday morning we drove by Pick Me Up Cafe, but since it wasn’t opened yet, we headed over to Handlebar.  I immediately fell in love with the place.  Okay, we were the only people eating there because it had barely opened, but it was relaxed, comfortable, and friendly. I can’t lie, I was sad to…

Vegan In Chicago: Karyn’s Cooked

June 18, 2010

Monday night we chose Karyn’s Cooked for dinner.  When I asked Twitter where to dine vegan in Chicago, everyone recommended Karyn’s Cooked over Karyn’s on Green, so we went with what you guys suggested.  Upon opening the car door at our parking space to make the short walk to the restaurant, I was greeted with…
