These autumn-spiced pickles, created for Vida Vegan's holiday class last week, are my new favorite: full of warm, subtle spices in every bite. I'm talking cinnamon, star anise, cardamom, allspice, and ginger, all spices that would be just as welcome in mulled wine and pumpkin pie. Recipe inside.

Are you curious about this so-called "Hiatus, Hiatus" that's being referenced? Perhaps, you don't have an Instagram account...or, you've found yourself wishing you could see all of Jess and Julia's Instagram photos from their travels in one place but are slightly too lazy or not creepy enough to figure it out? You're in lu

It's my day on the Whole Grain Vegan Baking Blogtour, and I'm taking the teeniest, tiniest moment away from uh, week-of Vida Vegan Con-hyperdrive duties, before bed to share what I've made so far from this intriguing, wholesome book. Let's be honest, there are a lot lot lot of vegan cookbooks out these days (and well, seemi

Bit by bit, her favorite cookbooks and well worn recipes from newspapers (Sweet Potato Pie Casserole, I'm talking to you), impressive family holiday spreads, baking peanut butter fudge cookies, frosting cupcakes for class, using a food processor to puree the filling for her well-loved stuffed mushrooms (which she kept makin

Cold brew has become one of the savings graces of warmer days in my life, and it's ridiculously easy to make at home. You're essentially extracting the coffee into more of a concentrate (which is why you're typically see cold brew priced higher than coffee). The method I used comes from Cook's illustrated's Dan Souza, and

A combination of baketivism and plastic-wrapped nostalgia at its finest.   These were for last weekend’s Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale in Portland, inspired by a big ole vganized Zebra cake that J. Legume and I made a few months ago. I vaguely remember our conversation on what type of cake to make for a gathering, and

I’ve been perusing Serious Eats (and wishing they’d read my mind and hand over my own vegan column already, jeez) quite a bit lately, and had to borrow one of their regular features as a title here, and hand it over to the past two weeks in my culinary life.  As I’m a bit nutty …

The past week has hit my heart hard. Witnessing images, a midst bits of news, and reading words of support and concern across the internet, of tragedy at the Boston marathon and ensuing chase and violence from Kendall Square into Watertown later in the week, have us all trying to understand. I find myself reflecting on th

Apt title, swell visit.   A morning well spent.   Saturday’s visit to the Portland Farmers Market saw my basket full of early Albion strawberries, fresh kaffir lime leaves, purple kale, maitake mushrooms, heirloom carrots, and even more purple cauliflower during a visit early enough in the day to avoid most strolle

Tales of the Texas VegFest (starring jaw-dropping vegan funnel cakes, tacos, Capital City goodies, Ethiopian stews and more) this past weekend are still rocking the vegan internet, so consider me crazy jealous – and in taco withdrawal.

What better time to start putting together a recap about a visit to the Better Living Home and Garden Show than a Boltbus with shaky but semi-reliant WiFi out-of-town? I’m now back home and just last night, started a batch of chocolate liqueur using the organic Frontier Co-op cacao nibs I picked up at the show (yea

A funny thing happened yesterday morning….J. Legume and I woke up before the crack of dawn, to watch said crack of dawn rise over Vancouver’s West End, and realized we were facing the wrong direction. Check, mark. Here’s a quick check-in from our trip even further Northwest…..We’re now in Victo

That may be the scene of late Saturday afternoon, but the morning offered a slightly damp yet rain-free and welcoming trip to the first Portland Farmers Market of the season. I usually have something of a dramatic countdown in place, but a stop by the albeit smaller but year-round farmers market at Peoples Coop a …

I’ve been caught dreaming of warm days (which is so not me) and vibrant margaritas (which is the new me) since my trip to Austin, TX with Vida Vegan HQ last month. Give me a patio, a salted rim, dark sunglasses, chips and endless salsa, and you have the highlight of a summer day. It’s …

There’s sometimes a phrase you find yourself using against your better judgement. You find it entering your conversations. It’s suddenly there. You may become aware, and attempt to phase it out and substitute some other vocabulary (see: the contemporary, multi-generational faded overuse of ‘cool’). Y

Here’s a little story from the early morning pages…..of dear J. Legume expressing her silly concern of not waking up to homemade breakfast often enough, my flabbergasted reaction, and her brunchy dreams surely coming true with spicy scrambled tofu, diner-style potatoes, and the fluffiest biscuits I’ve made

One of the proudest moments in the early realm of my DIY mixology was one of the very first: taking on homemade Kahlua for holiday gifts. Once upon a time, a friend had brought a bottle of her own to a party earlier in the holiday season, and I found myself so dang blown away and …
