Almond Milk Cookbook Review & Give-away

atovegan_the-almond-milk-cookbook_cover

We’re at the golden age of plant-based milks. Most supermarkets in the US now carry at least one type of plant milk. Be it coconut, almond, soy or rice, for the basic types, or cashew, flax, oat, hemp, sunflower, or quinoa for the not so common varieties. I’m sure I’ve forgotten some, but you get the point. “Ditch the dairy without giving up milk”. I’ll... Read More

Book Review: The Good Karma Diet by Victoria Moran

The-Good-Karma-Diet-Post

The first time I saw Victoria Moran was at Vegetarian Summerfest in Johnstown, PA back in 2011. My family and I were there for the 3 day program and I saw Victoria every day; whether she was the master of ceremonies on the main stage or leading her own class, I could tell this woman had an abundance of energy. In the years since, Victoria has been incredibly busy—most notably... Read More

Becoming Vegan – Review

becoming-vegan

I’ve heard it from many people that when you become vegan you also have to become an expert in nutrition, because everybody you meet will ask you a multitude of questions about it and will expect you to know the answers. As far as my personal experience goes, I agree with that assertive. Obviously you are under no obligation to become an expert on the subject, but since... Read More

The Vegetarian Flavor Bible Review & Giveaway

atovegan_vegetarian-flavor-bible_cover4

Around the same time Mauro and I were becoming vegan, I was also in the midst of becoming a foodie. 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

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
