I’ve allotted exactly thirteen minutes for this post amidst studying, which I’m afraid won’t begin to do justice to the beauty and taste of the recipe I’m about to share. Fortunately, this recipe happens to be very simple, as well as very delicious, so it won’t take much verbiage to convey. In fact, I’d almost […]

First of all: wow. That vaccine discussion was one of the best we’ve recently had, wasn’t it? I was blown away by the comments: the ones in favor of vaccines, the ones opposed to them, and the ones that expressed my own bag of mixed feelings.

Thanks for such nice comments on my wedding posts (part one and two). I was especially pleased to hear an outpouring of comments on my closing thoughts about Blue Hill, and other farms like it: a mixed bag of emotions, to be sure, but I’m glad that the loss of animal life still reverberates with […]

A few weeks ago, when Valerie and I had dinner at Open City, Val ordered the tofu scramble and pointed out that the restaurant’s addition of tahini to the scramble gives it a distinctly “feta” like flavor. Curious, I took a bite: feta was one of the animal foods I used to enjoy, and I […]

As Promised, Summer Corn and Coconut Soup

August 15, 2011

A few days ago, I shared the last meal that I threw together before my final exam descended and kept me out of the kitchen for a week. It rightfully earned the title of a “hurry up vegan” meal: though filling and heart (a soup, a salad, and a bean burger) it was also stunningly […]

Thank you all for welcoming Dr. Seale to CR with such enthusiasm! I loved the curious responses to yesterday’s post on Vitamin B-12. I can’t wait to see what other conversations Dr. Seale and I can get started. Keep sending me ideas, if you like, about health questions (I already sense that a Vit D […]

A Second Chance for Café Green

The first time I went to Café Green, I wrote what is and was probably the most scathing restaurant review I’ve ever posted on this blog. I hate critiquing vegan restaurants, but I also believe that they have a duty to show the world how fantastic and delicious vegan food is. When they fall short, […]
