We had started eating more local foods, eating seasonally thanks to our CSA shares and I was interested in becoming a better cook and baker. I would hit up my local library on a weekly basis in search of the best vegan cookbooks. On one of my weekly trips I stumbled upon The Flavor... Read More

atovegan_eztofu_inpress

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.

It still looks pretty much like it did... Read More

Vegan Casseroles – Review & Giveaway

Vegan Casseroles

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... Read More

Plant Power Cookbook by Nava Atlas – Review

Curried Chickpea & Escarole

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... Read More

Vegan Tacos Cookbook Review

atovegan_taco

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... Read More

Better Bean Review

atoveagn_better-bean_canape

Mauro and I love all types of beans and we cook them from scratch for the most part.

Better Bean is now one of our favorites to keep on hand. They have 5 types of prepared and well seasoned beans that are ready to heat and eat. Of... Read More
