In Residence


Hot on the tail of Mark’s “Cooking For One” post, I wanted to chime in with the perspective of cooking for one in my very particular situation: at an artist residency, in a shared kitchen, in a foreign country, as a vegan.  I been fortunate to have the time and space to reflect and observe […]

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 […]

Dinner For Breakfast: Breakfast Burrito & Breakfast Pizza


So, everybody loves breakfast for dinner, right? Like when you were 8 and you got to have Fruity Pebbles ™ for dinner? Well, this is like that–but the opposite! It’s about taking regular dinner-y foods, and converting them into something palatable for breakfast. So, we’re not talking about firing up the grill at 7am and […]

Green Smoothie


We found this power-packed smoothie recipe at Beauty That Moves.  We modified it a bit based on what we had on hand and what would fit in the blender. Green Smoothie 1 apple, sliced (we used a big crispy Fugi) 1 banana, halved (since we didn’t have any pear on hand) frozen strawberries to taste […]

Rainy Day Breakfast (Tofu Chili Scramble)


It’s a rainy sunday and we needed a scramble with an extra dose of heartiness. So, hot on the tail of my recent culinary upcycling kick, I whipped up a tofu scramble using our leftover chili and some wild rice from our wild rice and mushroom soup. If for some reason, you happen to have […]

Breakfast Day!–> Buttermilk Pancakes and Rainbow Chard Tofu Quiche


Mark agreed to do the dreaded task of mulling through the taxes today, so I wanted to take good care of him and feed him well all day.  For some reason, I feel like having breakfast cooked for you is one of the most comforting acts someone can perform, so I declared it breakfast day […]

Indigenous Scramble


No, this is not a hilarious dance performed by the natives to this continent–it’s a tofu scramble made with local ingredients, namely wild rice and acorn squash. I like to imagine this as the Thanksgiving Breakfast, pilgrims and natives alike feasting cruelty-free on tofu and native crops. No one gave anyone smallpox and everyone lived […]

French Toast (take 1)


There are a lot of vegan french toast recipes out there. For some reason, though, none of them has every really done the trick.  They’re always okay, but either (a) just create a crispy layer on the outside without really transforming or flavoring the bread, or (b) soak all the way through the bread, making […]

Breakfast for Dinner


When I was a kid, I always thought breakfast for dinner was a top thing. Of course, breakfast in those days was 3 bowls of Fruity Pebbles ™–essentially a bowl of candy with milk on it–so you can imagine why my nine-year-old brain would have delighted at this. That being said, I think it’s more […]

Baked Apple Cider Doughnuts


Let’s just start this with a picture: Every year when fall blows in and we buy that first jug of cider, a desire for apple cider doughnuts begins worming its insidious way through our brains. This is fueled largely by nostalgia for visits to the apple orchard as kids. Knowing this does not help quell […]
