Banana Bread (that eats like a cake)


This got this wonderful banana bread recipe from my dear friend and fellow artist Jennifer Bock-Nelson. Sorry I don’t have an image of the mini loaves themselves, but I did manage to snap a photo of it all wrapped up for Christmas giving. At the request of Bridget, one of the lucky bread recipients, here’s […]

The Mysterious Irreverent Vegan


Well, at least that’s what we hope you’re thinking. We’re not posting because we have a crucial, mysterious mission, of which we can tell you very little. You guessed right. That’s it. Our mission–well, one of them–was drinking this delicious Maple Sour. I’m a big bourbon fan, but not usually a sweet drink fan–not into […]

2nd Annual Breakfast Day!–> Spicy Tofu Omelette and Blueberry Muffins


Last year, when Mark volunteered to spend a Sunday doing our taxes, I decided to contribute by making breakfasts over the course of the day. The menu included Buttermilk Pancakes and Tofu Chard Quiche. I decided to uphold the tradition this year and make some breakfast-y comfort food in several courses. Since I had a […]

Tempeh & Wild Rice Hash


In Southeast Michigan, the veg community mainlines tempeh. When we moved here from Chicago, with a healthy, but manageable, appetite for seitan, we didn’t know what we were getting into. While seitan could rarely be had in a restaurant, it seemed like almost everywhere had at least one tempeh dish, often the ubiquitous (and delicious) […]

Reykjavik Roundup: Days 20 – 23, 25 – 29, Homecoming!


Greetings, friends, from Southeast Michigan! We have returned triumphantly from our sojourn to Iceland. It’s been wonderful to see our cats, catch up with our friends, and settle back in to the quiet life in our house. Of course, we miss Reykjavik and especially all of our new friends. Hope you’re all well! So here’s […]

Reykjavik, Days 5-7: Tofu Scramble, Leftovers, Pasta


On any extended travel, it’s inevitable that sooner or later you’ll hit that “need comfort food” point. This trip, it was a little on the “sooner” side. After a cold, snowy, but very social week, Sunday turned out to be a welcome rainy stay-inside sort of day. The perfect sort of day for a tofu […]

Makeshift Muesli


On my  (11-hour!) drive to the residency in August, I stopped at Quiet Storm and  the Mattress Factory in Pittsburgh as a break.  At Quiet Storm, I had a yummy brunch of what they were calling muesli, which was essentially cold (cooked) oatmeal, plain vegan yogurt and fruit and nuts–chopped walnuts, coconut shavings and chopped […]

Swedish Pancakes


On Sunday my most excellent residency hosts, Krista and Zak (at the Philadelphia Art Hotel) hosted the other resident, Jessica, and I for brunch.  It was super thoughtful of them to make a batch of Swedish pancakes just for me (the only vegan).  I provided applesauce as an egg replacer (1 tbsp as = 1 […]

Best Hot Weather Snack: Avocado and Grapefruit


I don’t know where I first came across this recipe (if you can call it that; it’s so simple), but grapefruit and avocado has been one of my favorite hot weather treats for a while now.  Chop a chilled ripe grapefruit and chilled avocado half (I like it when it’s still slightly firm) and mix […]

Abigail and Steven Waffles: Veganized!


We have attended many a brunch in the last couple of years- vegan and otherwise.  At almost every brunch, our friends Abigail and Steven descend with their heavenly looking (and smelling) waffles, but alas, they contain milk, eggs and butter.  They kindly gave us the recipe and this last Sunday they debuted in the IV […]
