Week of Raw Day 4: Falafel and Cashew Ice Cream


Victory at last! After a few days of good-but-not-great raw food, we have finally achieved greatness. After days of planning and preparation, the raw falafel we’ve been working on were finally done–and were delicious. We’ve been struggling for years now with homemade falafel–in any form and any way of cooking. We’ve never found just the […]

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 […]

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- Day 19, CURRY NIGHT!


Our new buds Nicole and Devon are also Americans living in Reykjavík, however they get to stay here for a whole year, as Nicole has sponsorship from the Leifur Eiríksson Foundation as well as the Fullbright Program to travel to various residencies and work on her art.  Devon is on a Fellowship from the University […]

Reykjavik Roundup, Days 15-18


On Tuesday, the soup craving finally hit. Not only are the days getting perilously short, it’s also been a bit murky here the last few days–helping to usher in the first soup of our stay: a hearty vegetable noodle soup. It looks complicated, perhaps, but like most of what we’ve been cooking here, it’s pretty […]

Reykjavik, Days 8-14: Quinoa Galore! and Southern Iceland


I hope Vegan MoFos average out. Our last MoFo, we posted almost every day. That makes up for the current dearth of posts, right? Right? Because we’ve been so caught up in everything, as well as outside our usual kitchen and food selection, most of our dishes have been really simple, and not necessarily worthy […]

Reykjavik, Days 1 – 3


Hello fello MOFOs (November is the 4th vegan MOnth of FOod) and non-MOFOs alike! In honor of this being the 4th MOFO, we decided to wait until the 4th day to post. Or not. Actually, as we mentioned earlier, we are in Reykjavik, Iceland for the month of November–so we’ve only just arrived and gotten […]

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 […]

Summer Grillin’


With the 4th of July right around the corner, the summer grilling season’s about to hit its peak. The 4th may very well be the actual peak for lots of people. For vegans and vegetarians fortunate enough to have a largely veg friend group, or a veg party/event to attend, this is always a great […]

Irreverent Vegan: Cooking For One – Pt 1


My sincere apologies to readers who visit IV for recipes. It’s been a bit scant lately, because of all the “arts & culture” posts. But think of it this way, if they ever release Trivial Pursuit: Vegan Edition, you’ll be golden. The pink/brown pie will be yours! Whoa…that sounded kinda gross. With Amy gone in […]
