Vegan Pumpkin Pie and a Gluten-Free Crust

I’m not crazy about pumpkin pie. Is that terrible to admit in my opening sentence? Maybe just a little. But my mother likes to make pumpkin chiffon pie for Thanksgiving and everyone else likes to eat that pie and so pumpkin pie must be good for something right? Plus she gave me the recipe for […]

Edamame and Black Lentil Veggie Burger

You should never sit idly by waiting for frozen edamame to thaw. It’d be silly to waste your time like that. Here’s a better idea: find a grocery store about 4 miles away and walk there. Your edamame will be good and moist by the time you get home. You will also have a wound […]

Strawberry Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies (An Eggless Cookie Option)

Remember when Billy Madison drew a blue duck and he told Ms Lippy that he drew the duck blue because he’s never seen a blue duck and he wanted to see one? Well today I used strawberry puree instead of eggs and tahini+peanut butter instead of butter in my chocolate chip oatmeal cookies because I’ve […]

Veggie Seitan Layer Cake

Ok it’s not really a cake. Sorry. But it would taste weird with icing. Not bad. Just weird. Actually… No. No icing. Savory layer cake. That’s what this is. And it incorporates all the veggies and colors you could want with a significant bunch of protein (31g a serving! crimony!!) you could use.

Quiche of the Week: The Love Song of the Corner Mexican Bodega

It’s been a whirlwind of a week. Marv Albert was commentating on an NBA game earlier this year and said at one point, in his very silly voice, “What a w(h)ild finish!” Pretty positive he added that “h” in wild. Ever since then, I’ve tried to add “what a w(h)ild finish!” as much as possible […]

In the Land of 1,001 Happy Hours

You know how I know I’m in Brooklyn? It’s 4:30pm on a Sunday and I’m sitting in a bar that will still be open 12 hours from now. I’ve walked 7 miles already today, run headfirst into a street fair, purchased the following: a variety of pickles (4 for $3!!), a couple of books (used!!), […]


Savory and Sweet Breakfast: Sunny Peanut-Butter-and-Jelly Side Up Egg over Cottage Cheese

It’s not hard to find savory oatmeal breakfast recipes that incorporate eggs. Mix it and cook, top it with a sunny side up egg, eat them really close together on a plate… Sweet oatmeal breakfast recipes are simple. Cook it with cinnamon and cocoa powder, throw some Splenda (is this what I’ve become? I don’t […]

BBQ Seitan and Crispy Potato Lettuce Wraps

I’ve had my heart set on making homemade seitan for quite some time now and this seitan ribs recipe from Fat Free Vegan has been haunting hanging out and not being intimidating or threatening my dreams at all. While zoning out on the metro today, I had this awesome idea that I should take that […]

Artichokes // Eggplant // Sweet Peppers // Seitan // Greens // Edamame // Sorta Spicy Quiche

“You can tell a lot about a week by its quiche.” That’s a popular old adage, right?
