Vegan Pot Pie

My cousin and I have been scheming over a vegan Thanksgiving. You see my father and her mother would revolt and protest and eventually bring their own turkeys and hams if they knew. It does not matter what the menu is or how filling everything it is, the point is that they are not dirty hippies and they will not eat tofu on Thanksgiving!

Annnnd I don’t have to worry because neither of them read…

Haupia (Coconut Milk Jell-o)


I was attracted to this recipe because it seemed sooooo easy, plus it’s a Hawaiian dessert so I also thought ‘ooooh exotic’. Although I had to do everything twice, it was still incredibly easy.

I’m going to give you the second version to save you the time.

In a bowl mix:

1/4 cup sugar

3/4 cup corn starch

Then stir in 1/2 cup warm water

Then pour a can of coconut milk into a pot and heat on medium…

Vegan Shepherd’s Pie


Someone asked me the other day why I wasn’t working as much lately on the blog. Well my friends, I am famously (I think I’ve explained this so many times that I can assume that I’m famous for it by now) spontaneous….more like impulsive.

I’ve wanted to update this blog for a while to have all sorts of bells and whistles and recently felt like it needed to happen before I went back to work.…

Vegan Perogies

Perogies have been on my cooking ‘to-do’ list for a while. I don’t know if I’ve had any since I became vegan but I used to LOVE them. Come home from school, turn on some Ricki Lake and enjoy some hot perogies.

So when my in-laws brought over some spaghetti squash from a farmer’s market I though I could make some yummy filling for some perogies. The ones I had growing up were generally just…

Vegan Zucchini Pasta

I’ve been neglectful of you readers. I’m like that super fake friend you have who doesn’t respond to your text message inviting her for drinks but responds a week later with one that says ‘Miss you xo :)’ and you’re thinking ‘ya if you missed me then you would have returned my text you stupid smelly canker-blossom.’

But it’s too exhausting to get into it with her so you just respond with ‘Me too…

Pesto Lentil Stir Fry in Oven Baked Tomatoes

Pesto Stuffed Tomatoes

One of the most vivid memories from my sister’s wedding this year was my amazing and custom-made vegan dinner! (Besides losing some major tooth enamel while my daughter had a melt down during the vows…)

It was pretty simple but it was incredible, like I would do bad things to have it again. I figured it couldn’t be that hard to make so I set out to re-create the baked tomatoes with cooked veggies…

Text 13 Jul 1 note Tofu Laksa
Vegan Laksa

I wanted to call this post ‘White People Laksa’ because I made so many changes to the original recipe that it’s more ‘Laksa-inpired’ than actual Laksa. But I figured that might be offensive. So maybe ‘Laksa Fusion’? Isn’t that the PC way of calling something white-washed? Am I even allowed to say that? No matter, you will understand when you read the rest of this post.

I bought some rice noodles…

Vegan Juice Cleanse

I felt I was starting to develop some unhealthy habits and since I’m still trying to feel like my pre-baby self I figured I would try a juice cleanse. It seems to be all the rage on Instagram so I figured I would give it a try. Besides Instagram, I also went to another reliable source for health & nutrition, Pinterest. A 3 day cleanse seemed like a good fit. Rich and I would have one at breakfast…

Ask a Vegan Part 1


My cousin Tamara is at a really awesome (I was going to say beautiful but I’m on my second glass of wine and I questioned whether I would use that word if I was on my second glass of water…I digress…) phase of her food journey. (Sorry for the second tangent within a bracket but aren’t we all at some part of our food journey? It’s beautiful…HA I did it!)

Anyways, she’s looking to broaden her…
