Tofu Salad Sandwich

Tofu Salad Sandwich

When I was in college in upstate New York, some of my veg-head housemates were obsessed with Bridge tofu, which we had delivered to our house in a 5-gallon plastic bucket. It may come as a surprise to some of you that different brands of tofu taste and feel different, but they do! And the...
Vegan Cadbury Creme Eggs

Vegan Cadbury Creme Eggs

You might wonder why a vegan atheist is reverse engineering Cadbury Creme Eggs, but look: my philosophy is that there’s (just about) never a reason not to party, okay?*
Easy Vegan Peanut Butter Fudge

Easy Vegan Peanut Butter Fudge

As with my mother and grandmothers before me, I spend some portion of every December preparing an array of sweet treats to share with (and send to) folks I care about. And sure, creating a dozen varieties of sugar-laden cookies and candies over the course of a weekend requires an iron stomach and a superhuman...
Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats

Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats

I know, I know: these pumpkin pie overnight oats really aren’t much to look at. Just hear me out!
Curried Coconut Lentils

Curried Coconut Lentils

I don’t know how the weather is where you live, but here in New Haven, it’s getting cold. Not that I’m complaining! Last night I got in perfect cold-weather form and whipped up a pot of curried coconut lentils.
Warm Cabbage Salad

Warm Cabbage Salad

Have I mentioned that I love cabbage in all its forms? Because I do. This warm cabbage salad is a beautiful, bright, and nutty salad certain to cheer you up when the weather gets cool and the leaves start to fade.
Garlic Broccoli Stirfry

Garlic Broccoli Stirfry

Is there anything Joy of Cooking can’t do? Obviously the answer to this question is a firm yes. Take, for example, the fact that my version of this book, published a mere 6 years ago, contains only two recipes calling for tofu as an ingredient.
Rancho Beans

Rancho Beans

It’s only autumn, and already I’ve caught the casserole bug. A few years ago, my grandmother gave me a copy of her church’s spiral-bound cookbook, a compilation of all the favorite recipes of the nearby farmers and homemakers. These books are incredible — I have been known to sit and read them aloud for sheer...
Cinnamon Kettle Corn

Cinnamon Kettle Corn

  The first time I ate cinnamon kettle corn was about a year ago, when Curmudgeon, super sweet folks in Boston who play super sweet powerviolence, played a show in Waterbury.  They went for a walk and returned with snacks to share, which included a bag of flavored popcorn. Someone is probably going to be...
Vegan Chocolate Pudding

Vegan Chocolate Pudding

Oh, the minutes I wasted trying to think up a clever way to tell you about this recipe for chocolate pudding. But y’know, if I really need to say anything more than “chocolate” and “pudding,” maybe this just ain’t for you.
Vegan Vanilla Pudding

Vegan Vanilla Pudding

As regular readers of my blog no doubt know, it is an understatement to say that I am pretty into chocolate. But sometimes you just want something simple, creamy, and lightly sweetened, and on those occasions, nothing beats a bowl of vanilla pudding.
Pecan Clusters

Pecan Clusters

There was a fancy chocolate store near the house I lived in in my teens, and some Christmases, if we were lucky, my father would bring home a sampler box of their offerings. I hate to play favorites, especially when it comes to chocolate, but for me, pecan clusters were always the highlight of those...
