The Tagine Project

If you’ve been following my Instagram, you’ll know that I’ve become obsessed with mastering Moroccan-style one pot cooking with a Tagine. Although I’m a pretty savvy cook, I bought a couple of recipe books because I’m always down to learn more things. I’ve decided that for the Summer, particularly given that I’m a lazy cook,…

Penne & Pesto with Kale & Leeks

I’ve discovered that I’m a fairly lazy cook. I guess I’ve always been that way, even before I became a vegan. The difference is more prep with sauces for vegan dishes (because I start with whole ingredients), but all of my meals still clock in under the half hour mark. I got a wild hair…

Nut Milk

If you’re tired of buying specialized ‘milks’ at the grocery store, just make your own! Here are my ‘lazy ass can’t be bothered to slow down and do things right’ recipes: CASHEW MILK: Raw Cashews Filtered water OPTIONAL: Vanilla beans (soaked and pureed) Sea Salt Soak raw cashews overnight. Toss them in a vitamix with…

Ode to the Leek

I have a confession: I am wholeheartedly in love with leeks. I don’t even know when I first discovered this miraculous vegetable. I think I was following some random recipe a billion years ago that called for a leek or two. I remember that it took me forever to find it in the grocery store…

Recipe: Creamy Chickpea Curry

I have to be honest… I never thought anyone would want the recipes for the things that regularly make their way into my body. I’m the laziest cook on EARTH. My only rule is that things have to taste good and can’t be ugly. But I’m not slaving away for 4 hours in the kitchen…

Curry Basmati Rice w/ Greens

Okay, this is the dish that I got the most requests for. Bear with me as I figure out out what the hell I’m doing… eventually there may be a ‘recipes’ section or some such. Right now I can’t even figure out how NOT to make those damn links look like… you know… LINKS. smh…

Still Vegan…

… but not as fluffy. MY GOODNESS. It’s been a lesson, this vegan journey. I learned a lot, and had to recruit outside sources to figure out some things: -Vegan does not automatically translate to healthy -You don’t have to be militant vegan to actually be healthy -Processed food is still a bad idea, vegan…

In My Fluffy Feelings

Ahhhh I survived what is affectionately known as Turkey Day without any meat-related incident. Not that it would be a problem, considering the culinary state of my in-laws. It turns out, with the exception of my brother in law, niece and nephew… no one else eats meat. So there was no shortage of vegan options…

The Taste Test

There’s common misconception that vegan food tastes like cardboard and poor life choices. Honestly, this reputation is well earned because there are way too many folks in my life who chuck a metric ton of romaine or kale down their throats wrapped in Ezekiel bread (worst.stuff.ever.I’m sorry y’all, it is. And got the nerve to…

Vegan Bullying and Recreational Outrage

So I’m scrolling through Instagram and I see this post from a yoga teacher: Interestingly enough, before I actually read the accompanying copy on her personal post, I thought she was talking about this: The Real Story of Thanksgiving As a member of the Eastern Pequot Tribal Nation, this is not an unfamiliar story to…
