Peanut Butter and Jelly Linzer Heart Cookies

Peanut Butter and Jelly Linzer Heart Cookies

Valentine’s Day is next week, and whether you’re of the cheesy holiday-loving persuasion or the my heart bleeds the darkest blood sort, I’ve got something for you: peanut butter and jelly linzer hearts! This grown-up twist on the classic pairing of PB&J is perfect for those of you who are kids at heart… and for...
Potato Skins

Potato Skins

You wouldn’t exactly call me a football fan. My football-related credentials can be boiled down to two things: at a certain point in college I really enjoyed avoiding writing papers by playing 10-Yard Fight, and at one point in my life, I listened to that embarrassingly homonymous band. I really have nothing bad to say about...
Vegan Little Wieners

Vegan Little Wieners

Also known as little smokies or cocktail wieners, little wieners are basically miniature hot dogs, usually served in some sort of barbecue sauce, and intended to be eaten with toothpicks. (Because what’s more American than protein on a stick?)
Let's talk turkeys.

Let’s talk turkeys.

I don’t usually get very personal on this blog. Recipes are great and all, but honestly? I’m not just vegan for all the delicious, fun food. I’m really here for the animals, which is why I spent spring of 2010 interning at the aptly named Farm Sanctuary in Watkins Glen, New York. I think about...
Vegan Apple Crisp

Vegan Apple Crisp

In Connecticut in the fall, when the days become crisp but sunny and the shadows are long, apple picking is a time-honored tradition. Don’t even talk to me about those waxy specimens they sell at the grocery store — there is nothing like an apple picked fresh off the tree. I especially like collecting drops;...
Vegan Butterfinger Candy

Vegan Butterfinger Candy

When I was little, my brothers and I would go trick-or-treating together, and when we got home, we’d pour our respective hauls out of their pillowcases. We’d organize our candy by type, putting everything in order of personal preference. Then the bartering began. Piece by piece, we’d trade off the things we didn’t like until...
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 Sloppy Joes

Vegan Sloppy Joes

How have I never shared my recipe for vegan sloppy joes? My family hails from right down the road from the birthplace of these messy sandwiches, Sioux City, Iowa, so this is a food I grew up eating in massive quantities. Although sloppy joes are pretty ubiquitous and everyone does them a little differently, this...
Beet Salad

Beet Salad

When we lived together in college, my housemate Tessa loved avocados and beets. At the time, I had a serious aversion to both of these foods, and awaited Tessa’s assigned cooking night with dread. It felt like no matter what dish she cooked for our nightly dinners, she would find a way to squeeze avocados...
Peanut Butter Banana Shake

Peanut Butter Banana Shake

Now that summer has finally and undeniably arrived, let’s take a quick break from baked goods and anything that involves an open flame or heat-producing coil. When it’s as hot as it is in half of the U.S. this weekend, just thinking about cooked food makes me sweat. So instead of getting down with Vegan...
