EZ Tofu Press Giveaway 2014

Wednesday, December 10, 2014

Two and a half  years ago we wrote our first review on the EZ Tofu Press, a simple and very affordable kitchen gadget that helps press excess water out of tofu. Last year Mauro wrote an updated post on how it was holding up and that it was still working well for us. We’re happy to report that we’re still using it to press tofu. It still looks pretty much like it did when we got it, the bolts haven’t rusted, the boards are pretty much straight (just some minimal arching). As we mentioned before, it’s...

Vegan Casseroles – Review & Giveaway

Wednesday, December 10, 2014

Before I get on with the review for Julie Hasson’s Vegan Casseroles*, I have a couple of confessions to make. 1) I love one-dish wonders/casseroles. They’re hearty, comforting and make the house smell great when you’re baking them. They’re also great to take to potlucks and holiday parties. 2) I have a soft spot in my heart for Julie Hasson. She’s a sweet the sweetest person ever and she makes amazingly delicious vegan food. When I was transitioning from vegetarian to vegan, I found Julie’s...

Plant Power Cookbook by Nava Atlas – Review

Thursday, November 13, 2014

I’m a big fan of Nava Atlas’ cookbooks. I had a few in my bookcase already and love how straight-forward and easy to make her recipes are. I had the immense pleasure of meeting Nava in person last year, and again this year, and found that we have the same style of cooking. Her books are so intuitive to me, but I also found that they’re intuitive, period. When I received my copy of Plant Power: Transform Your Kitchen, Plate, and Life with More Than 150 Fresh and Flavorful Vegan Recipes, I was completely...

The 6 Top Myths About Plant-Based Diets

Thursday, November 13, 2014

Guest post by Nava Atlas Would you like to consider a plant-based (aka vegan) diet, but find yourself confused by all the conflicting information? Let’s look at some of the most persistent myths, one at a time. You’ll never get enough protein on a plant-based diet. While longtime vegans regard the “Where do you get your protein” question as an annoyance, I look at it as an opportunity to enlighten the curious. It truly isn’t difficult to get sufficient good-quality protein on a whole-foods plant-based diet. It’s...

Tofurky Vegetarian Roast for the Holidays

Sunday, November 9, 2014

Tofurky Roast in the box The holiday season is a merry time of the year to spend time with loved ones and friends, catching up, reminiscing and enjoying a delicious holiday meal together, but it can be a lonely time for some vegetarians and vegans. For years, people who chose not to eat meat have been left out of the holiday meal celebration (or had to bring their own separate meal), but that all changed with the introduction of products like the Tofurky Roast. Now, everyone can share a special meal minus the cruelty...

Ayindé and Zoë share their experiences of past failed relationships with non-vegans, what worked, what didn’t work and why, their lusts both in the kitchen and in the bedroom; general advice on how to approach different types of relationships; and they pair it all with a collection of...

Sunday, October 19, 2014

Omni on Vegan: Tips for Omnivores Guest Post by Ayindé Howell and Zoë Eisenberg You’re not a vegan. And let’s face it: you may never call yourself a vegan. If you’re down to date a vegan, then good for you. The reality is, once it’s past the fun hook-up-on-a-Friday-night phase, and past the awkward “soooo, what are we?” phase, and into the comfy “we” are an “us” phase, then it’s time to know how to handle your vegan. With infatuation comes a willingness to try new things. You hit some vegan-...

Vegan Tacos Cookbook Review

Tuesday, September 30, 2014

One of my favorite go-to and easy meals is tacos. I always keep some corn tortillas in the freezer for those nights when I really don’t want to think about making a big meal. I generally use a combination of leftovers and other items in my fridge. I also prefer corn tortillas over wheat, because they are more flavorful authentic. Now, Jason Wyrick’s Vegan Tacos* cookbook has helped me take tacos to a whole new level. This book offers truly authentic and inspired recipes and techniques, vegan-style. Want...

Product Review: Dansko Sanibel Vegan Clogs

Dansko's Sanibel Vegan Clogs in black.

I’m admittedly not much of a shoe person. Maybe that’s because my feet grew quickly as a kid, and I was wearing a size 9 by the time I was in middle school. I looked ridiculous in the trendy shoes of the 80’s (does anyone remember those little black fabric Mary Janes that were so […]
