A Date with Cookie Dough Bites

The other night at the Daiya Cheezecake launch party, Marla Rose from Vegan Street went on a rant about raw vegan desserts that made me pee my pants laughing. It’s not that they can’t taste really good – they do, for the most part. It’s just...

The Plantpower Way: Strawberry Mint Cacao Cheesecake

Rich Roll and Julie Piatt are pretty cool. He’s an entertainment attorney-turned vegan endurance athlete, motivational speaker and plant-based nutrition advocate, and she’s a plant-based chef, healer, musician and yogi. Together, they are two people who...

Crave Eat Heal Blog Tour: Butternut Squash Queso

I am a very big fan of Annie Oliverio and what she does at An Unrefined Vegan. She makes the kind of food – healthy, delicious, satisfying and nutrient-rich – that I actually eat day to day that enables me to dream up things like Doritos-Crusted Tofu and...

#SheikClass Vegan Sabzi Polow

Even though I love doing weird things in the kitchen (like changing Agnostic Front lyrics to make them about cake – “it’s my, it’s my, it’s my slice!”) I tend to stay pretty close to my comfort zone. I know Italian, I know white...

Native Foods’ Vegan “Eggs” Benedict

I started typing up this whole long thing about why I don’t eat eggs because recently, I was called “an extremist” for that very reason. I started writing about how maybe, when I post vegan recipes as I have been strictly doing since 2011, (you will...

JuiceXCore 101: A Crash Course in Drinking Squished Produce

I love making juice. I love drinking juice. I love making vibrant colors and sweet and spicy flavors and I especially love how I feel when I drink a really good juice. Whenever I come up with a really great juice I Instagram it along with a list of all the ingredients...

Boston Hardcore Pie – Happy Birthday CM Punk!

Natalie’s note: Digging this one out of the archives in honor of Pie Day! The other day (October 26, to be exact,) was my friend Phil’s birthday. Most of the world knows him has the lovable jerk CM Punk, harasser of bosses and The Best in the World. I know...

Vegan Deep Dish Breakfast Pizza

My husband Tony recently acquired two items – a wok, and a cast iron skillet. Therefore, as he does most of the cooking, everything we have eaten in the last three weeks or so has been cooked either in the wok, or in the cast iron skillet. This has been...

A Love Letter to Americoke

Tony and I played hookie this past Friday the 13th to go see the Vodou: Sacred Powers of Haiti exhibit at the Field Museum. We kicked off the day with giant plates full of vegan biscuits and gravy from West Town Bakery and then spent about two hours poking around the...

Viva Vegan Pasta Carbonara with Shiitake Bacon

Once in a while I get my hands on a cookbook that I just cannot stop using. Julie Hasson’s Vegan Casseroles is one of them, and Chloe Coscarelli’s Vegan Italian Kitchen is my latest. I’ve tried a handful of the recipes, each of which I would...

Keep It Vegan Review + Macaro-no Cheese with Crispy Kale

I recently received a review copy of Keep It Vegan: Over 100 Simple, Healthy & Delicious Dishes by Aine Carlin, and am sharing my favorite recipe, mac n’ no-cheese with crispy kale because if there’s one stereotype about vegans that rings true, it is...
