Local Goods: Can we talk for a second about DF Mavens Vegan Ice Cream?

Holy shit, yes we can. I think my favorite part of DF Mavens Vegan Ice Cream is probably the sorcery involved with making it. Sure, the base ingredient is always either coconut milk or soy milk. And yes, the other ingredients include things like roasted pecans, vegan caramel swirls, pieces of cookie crusts, hazelnuts and […]

Mushroom and Spinach Tart

A few weeks ago, my dog and I visited one of our best friends in Atlanta, GA. (That’s right, my dog and I have a mutual best friend. And he’s not even a pomeranian or anything because is anyone really friends with pomeranians? They are such lone wolfs.) While we were there, we (my friend […]

Amazing Meal No-Bake Protein Bars

Listen, I’m not going to beat around the protein powder bush here. I’m not one to beat, punch, strangle, or assault any bushes (I think I’m missing the point of the word “beat” in this context? Or I’m just anti-plant violence? Probably?). So here’s the straight up warm handshake directly to the bush (nope, I definitely […]

Citizen Chef Chipotle Adobo Tofu and Pickled Slaw Salad

Free things are the best things. Free drinks are my favorite drinks that are definitely not laced with date rape drugs. Free-for-alls are my favorite emotional and physical states. And free food has always, forever been my favorite food. I’ve even gone to great lengths for it: I’ve shown up to work for it, I’ve […]

Cherry Poppers and Zulka Morena Pure Cane Sugar Giveaway

There are a few classic lines from movies that I just can’t get enough of. “This screen’s getting all blue-y on me.” “How long have you been a robber?” “Four foot one, sir!” “Leeloo Dallas Multipass!” “Now I’ve popped both your cherries.” skip to the recipe skip to the Zulka Morena Pure Cane Sugar Giveaway […]

Local Goods: Beyond Sushi – Union Square, NYC

If you’re looking for the crib notes version of this post, the cheat sheet, the drool report, the wet dream in your mouth short-cut (too far? not far enough?), here it is: go eat at Beyond Sushi and do it now. Do it right now. I put this off for a year because apparently I […]

Gwyneth Paltrow-ized Baked Power Oatmeal PB+J Squares

I am not reading Gwyneth Paltrow’s cookbook. I am not reading Gwyneth Paltrow’s cookbook. I am not reading Gwyneth Paltrow’s cookbook. (I am reading Gwyneth Paltrow’s cookbook. Fuck. And I totally love it. Double fuck.) I blame New York Magazine. And society. And buckwheat. And her delicate prose that I can’t help but read aloud […]

Food Review: Smari Organic Icelandic Yogurt

So, when I shared my Tabouli recipe a few weeks ago, I made mention of my master grocery list. It’s evolved over time – I’ve learned more about my own personal nutrition goals, I’ve tasted a lot of different kinds of ice cream (frozen kefir! frozen kefir!), I’ve gotten into celery in a big way. […]

The Search for the Best Cookies in New York, February: Blue Sky Bakery’s Oatmeal Chocolate Chip and ‘Snice’s Vegan Maple Oatmeal Raisin

Round 2! And 3! Fight!! This morning I woke up quite satisfied in a post-Oscars haze and little else. And then I ate no less than 3 breakfasts. In rapid succession. There was some yogurt in there, some peanut butter, some tabouli/hummus/babaganouj leftovers, and yes, some Vanilla Protein Cake with Peanut Butter Frosting. I also […]

The Search for the Best Cookies in New York, January: Baked in Brooklyn – Chocolate Chip & Walnut

I love cookies. I think this is part of the reason I am so health conscious and so into avoiding carbs. You kinda have to be when you live for cookies. It’s a non-negotiable. I don’t deny myself treats and my treat of choice is always, 100% of the time, a cookie. So much so […]
