Eating Vegan At Copper Dog Cafe

August 6, 2010

When my husband saw an article in the paper about a vegan-friendly restaurant opening up in Lafayette, we had to check it out.  So last night, we packed up our little family and headed out on our dinner adventure. Copper Dog Cafe is located in a historic downtown location and couldn’t be more beautiful.  The…

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…

Vegan In Chicago: Chicago Diner

June 16, 2010

Hi everyone!  I’ve missed you!  We spent Monday and Tuesday in Chicago with my dad and ate some awesome vegan food.  Oh, and we also visited a couple museums and the planetarium, but let’s stick to what’s really important here- the food!   Since we ate quite a lot at each place, I’m going to give…

Tofu Scramble And Loving Cafe Vegan Restaurant

April 25, 2010

Admittedly, this weekend is a blur.  I mean, all weekends go by too fast, but woah.  Friday night we drove to visit my family, stopping first at my grandma’s to make dinner.  I made a tofu scramble loaded with sliced portabella mushrooms and fresh spinach.  You can’t go wrong with a tofu scramble! Saturday morning…

Guacamole Dip And Vegan Purple Soup

April 23, 2010

Last night I went shopping with my sister in law and by the time we got home I was just too tired to blog.  Thank you, as always, for the comments on Your Thoughts Thursday; I was hoping even more people would have inspirational stories about influencing the lives of others, but since it was…

Vegan Yum Yum Pancakes, Moe’s, And No Impact Man

April 18, 2010

Yesterday morning we started off the day with Saturday perfection, vegan pancakes!  I made the “Weekend Pancakes Made Easy” recipe (page 32) from Vegan Yum Yum rather than my normal go-to memorized recipe.  They were a little thinner than I’m used to making, which I expected since it’s stated in the recipe it makes a…

Vegan At Moe’s, Potatoes, And More

April 2, 2010

Yesterday, my best friend from college was in town for business so we made plans to grab some lunch before her flight out.  Since we’re both vegan, the main requirement for where to meet is always a vegan-friendly menu!  Since it’s a rather non-vegan-friendly dining area that we were meeting up in our options were…

A Vegan Birthday Weekend

March 7, 2010

I haven’t gotten a chance to blog for a couple of days, but it has been an amazing weekend!  Our little boy turned two on Thursday, so we took him out for lunch and a little shopping to celebrate!  The night before, I did some research on vegan dining in chain restaurants.  We don’t live…

Loving Cafe Vegan Take-Out

February 17, 2010

Alright, I definitely had to make this two posts since we spanned it over two meals and a snack (First – Loving Cafe)!  The food was sent home in brown recycled cardboard boxes and still really good warmed up the next day.  The spring rolls we bought to take back to my mom’s weren’t as…
