Northern New Jersey’s Best Kept Vegan Establishments

| March 3, 2012 | 4 Comments

I’m from NJ, born and raised.  Sometimes, I am ashamed to admit this fact.  Fortunately, I have the luxury of voluntarily revealing this often-irrelevant piece of information or not because I have (since I made my escape back in 2000), lost the notorious NJ accent.  Thus, I can usually remain incognito.  However, I’m back visiting […]

Vegan Hope

| January 17, 2011 | 0 Comments

Part One (Written 11.7.10): I know, I know.  It’s been a long while since my last posting. I apologize.  And—if you will humor me with some tolerance for excuses—I have some great reasons why I’ve been in absentia.  Part of those excuses has precipitated this posting. As of late, I have met people who fall […]

Peace o’ Pie Gourmet Vegan Pizza: Food Review

Yes, it has been a while since my last post.  Feel free to email me some chastisement.  But no worries, this entry is well worth the wait! What is more fun (and tasty) than grabbing a pizza on a Friday night and then some drinks afterward in a hippie, fun, cool part of Boston called […]

Тиквеник (for those who can read the Cyrillic Alphabet and/or speak Bulgarian) Following the Bulgarian specialty dish motif, here is another recipe to tempt and expand your palate.  If you thought the Bulgarian Fried Dough was great, you’ll love this dish too.  What can I say?  Clearly, the Bulgarians know how to do it right, […]

Season Favorites–New Vegan Skittles and Pumpkin Tapioca Pudding

| November 2, 2009 | 1 Comments

The word has gotten around.  Skittles are now vegan–no more gelatin added.  And also gluten free to boot.  This news traveled fast, although ironically not by the makers of Skittles but by the vegan community.  I figured as part of that community, I’d help spread the word too.  Albeit, from a health perspective I’m not […]

Bulgarian Fried Dough

| October 26, 2009 | 3 Comments

This weekend my friend (who is also vegan) and I partook in one of his favorite childhood memories—fried dough for breakfast.  Being an American, my breakfast childhood memories (which were “pre-vegan” for the record) center on weekend trips to IHOP; pancakes; waffles; bagels with cream cheese, lox, and whitefish salad (thanks to those Jewish roots); […]

Vegan Stuffed Squash–Last Night’s Epicurean Delight

| October 25, 2009 | 0 Comments

Last night, I cooked an alternative version of the traditional stuffed acorn squash with rice dish.  Instead, I replaced rice with millet, an uncommon but nutrition powerhouse ( and gluten-free) grain. Before I tell you about my delicious and aesthetically pleasing, eye-catching dish (and there is a picture to prove it), let me give you […]

The Tasty Triumvirate–Items Not to Be Missed

| September 29, 2009 | 1 Comments

In my very first blog posting, I would like to take this opportunity to inform you all of three staple food items that I rarely do without.  These aren’t necessarily “essentials,” but they are darn tasty, healthy, and easy to prepare (for those of us who are on a tight time schedule and need convenience).
