Summer Scapes


Garlic scapes, that is. Never heard of ’em? We hadn’t either until Amy recently stumbled upon them in a blog post (which we cannot, for the life of us, locate–thank you anonymous vegan blog–you are a true unsung hero). Garlic scapes (the long curly green stalks in the picture above) are the young stems from […]

Week of Raw Days 6 & 7: Taco Salad, Taco Night


After our awesome meal on Friday, and then awesome leftovers on Saturday, we finally started to settle into our raw diet. Things felt more easy-going and we started looking forward to dinner again. We’re huge fans of Mexican food and we’re huge fans of re-using meal ingredients creatively, so on Sunday, we thought we’d try […]

Week of Raw Day 3: Mexican Stuffed Peppers


On this, the afternoon of day 4, I can state happily that my caffeine withdrawal seems to be in check. I don’t think I’ve quite re-acquired my previous coffee-infused laserbeam-like focus, but things are looking up. Last night, we made another recipe from The Complete Book of Raw Food: Mexican Stuffed Peppers. We’ve been trying to […]

Week of Raw Day 2: Pad Thai


It is currently 10:15 am. I have been up since 8:30 am. What have I been doing with my morning, you ask? Preparing raw foods and cleaning up, of course! This is the sink load of dishes I’ve already produced this morning: This accounts for our morning breakfast shake, the raw almond milk we made […]

Week of Raw Day 1: Tomato Basil Cream Pasta & Carrot Cake


The first thing I learned about myself and my diet yesterday is that I am officially coffee’s bitch. Coffee, it would seem, is calling all the shots. Amy and I switched to half caf a year or two ago, so I thought I was in the clear, that I could just ditch coffee any time […]

Week of Raw: Day 0 – Plan of Attack, Blue & Bei’s Salad


Friends, forgive me in advance for what I’m sure will have to be a muddled, rambling, haze of a post. I haven’t had any coffee. In fact, I’m not planning on having any today or for the next 6 days; Amy and I are embarking on a week-long raw diet! When most people think raw, […]

Kale Chips


Over the winter holidays, our excellent friends Blue and Bei were in town. Catching up one afternoon, Blue brought over a batch of Buddhist-made kale chips, which we proceeded to inhale. They don’t sound like they would be as awesome as they are–they’re crispy, salty, and sort of cheesy-tasting–like a perfect popcorn, with just a […]

Easy Kale Salad


I fell in love with this salad as soon as I saw it.  I’ve made a few changes to the simple recipe and so am reposting it here for you. Easy Kale Salad one bunch of kale, chopped the juice of one lemon the juice of one orange (optional) one avocado, chopped one apple, chopped […]

From the Residency: (Mostly) Raw Kale Salad


As Mark mentioned I am currently at a residency at the Philadelphia Art Hotel, run by two amazing people, artists Krista Peel and Zak Starer. I am all set up in a the top floor of a row-house in the East Kensington neighborhood in a studio room adjacent to a kitchenette where, thankfully, I can once […]

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 […]
