atovegan_tofurky_roast-platter1

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),... Read More

Adorable bunny shaped tomato

I know the timing of this post isn’t the best, but, hopefully, it will give you some food for thought for next year and what to do with all those delicious tomatoes. Look at all these lovely tomato varieties I got this year from our market share, produced by one of our many local, organic-on-a-handshake, CSA farms—Barefoot Gardens. This is the advantage of buying from a... Read More

I am not creative when it comes to food. I pretty much live by the myriad of cookbooks that litter the top of my fridge. I’m grateful to all of those adventurous cooks who write them and I admire them for that.

Vegan Pão de Mel – Brazilian Honee Cake

Lydia and I decided to split it and each come up with a recipe that would normally use traditional honey, substituting it with this new product. I decided to make some granola bars, which are really simple and take less than an hour, from prep time to clean up. I also wanted to make something portable... Read More

Vegan Zucchini, Basil, “Cheese” Muffins

atovegan_zbcmuffin

I prefer something savory as a snack or for breakfast and they certainly hit the spot last, this morning, and possibly many more times today. They’re so irresistibly yummy Mauro and I just can’t stop noshing on these buggers. I doubled the recipe when I made them... Read More
