10 Favorite Vegan Potluck Dishes & Cookout Foods

Last year at Vegan Mania I saw in the “Ask an Expert” booth for a bit and had a great time fielding questions about everything from replacing eggs in cake recipes to how to talk to your family about being vegan without starting a fight. One question I got...

BurgerTime Whoopie Pie Recipe

BurgerTime, for those of you who are too young to be reading this book. is an early 80’s video game featuring Chef Peter Pepper’s quest to assemble giant hamburgers by running over the ingredients while fighting off killer hot dogs, pickles and eggs. It’s one of the...

Vegan Taco Lasagna Recipe

This is my absolute favorite recipe from my cookbook, which is why I chose to share it in the Virtual Vegan Linky Potluck. In third grade I used to spend all my Scholastic money on Garfield books. It bummed my mom out, but those books taught me two important life...

Vegan Nacho Chee-Zee Sauce Recipe

Pour it over nachos and baked potatoes, dip your chips in it or bake it into a casserole. This zesty version of my vegan Chee-Zee Sauce has just enough heat to let you know you’re eating nacho “cheese,” but not enough to blow your taste buds off. Of course, if you’re...

Down Yonder: Memories Gone Vegan

A few nights ago my friend Leigh Saluzzi posted a link to a couple of recipe zines she’d created. Recipe zines are the best – for somewhere around $3 a pop you can get some really great new ideas and often times, a personal story about each recipe that...

Mouthful O’ Midwest Sandwiches

Just in case my “midwest” knuckle tattoos (complete with a tiny ear of corn on one finger) and the tattoo of a Chicago style hotdog on my shoulder didn’t tip you off, I would like to officially disclose my status as a Midwesterner right now. I grew...

Donut Salad or Droutons or Something Equally as Stupid

First came the cronut. Then the donoli. I just heard about wonuts here in Chicago. Earlier this week on my Facebook page I wondered what the next donut hybrid might be. Dalad, perhaps – donut salad? So how does one make a donut salad? Make a mixed greens donut,...

Vegan Crepe Recipe + Vegg Giveaway

I had a chance to check out Vegg, the plant-based egg yolk replacer that’s been simultaneously sweeping and weirding out the vegan community. Yes, there are lots of whole food options for egg replacement in your recipes (click here to download my handy egg &...

Vegan WrestleMania XXX Menu

Full disclosure: I’m not watching WrestleMania this year. Long-time Bake and Destroy readers probably get it – but for anyone who is new to the site, CM Punk is a dear friend of mine. For that reason, and also because I would rather watch my dog eat a used...
