Melbourne is Vegan Junkfood Heaven – A Semi-Guide

I spent three weeks in Melbourne in February 2018 and let me tell you, vegan Melbourne is on POINT. Especially the vegan junk food. I'm not a clean eating kinda person by any means, but after three weeks even I was craving salads. Not to say there isn't good healthy...

I got in touch with my inner hippy in Pai – Vegan Pai Guide

I loved Pai. Like, really really loved Pai. I actually think some of my best food in Thailand so far was from there, hence this vegan Pai guide. Now, people love or hate it, and most people visiting Chiang Mai seem to end up there at some point. I think how you find...

Vegan Chiang Mai Guide

Vegan Chiang Mai? I got you covered. I spent almost 2 months in Chiang Mai in January - February 2018, and I LOVED it so much I came back again in May. I wasn't sure if it would live up to the hype, but ultimately it did. My first month I wasn't sure, but by the...

Vegan in Bangkok, Thailand

Hellooooo vegan Bangkok! I've been in Thailand since January 4th, and my first stop was Bangkok to chill for a few days and get over my jetlag! I've been stalking all the vegan bloggers' Thailand posts for aaaaages, so it was exciting to finally get over there myself...

The Noms are Back!

Oh hey. It's been awhile. I know I've neglected the blog over the last months, but I have good news...I am BACK! Some big life changes are afoot. I've quit my job, sublet my flat and bought a ticket to Thailand, where I am now. I'll be working on switching over to...

Vegan in Las Palmas, Gran Canaria, Spain

From April 1-10 I attended the Digital Nomad Girls Retreat in Las Palmas, Gran Canaria, which is a Spanish island off the coast of Africa. It's pretty much perfect weather all the time. It was warm enough to swim in April, without being too hot. In all honesty, before...

Get Shit Done: Cafes in Berlin with Wifi and Vegan Options

So, updates! I switched to part-time in December and now work 30 hours per week and have Fridays off. I'm trying to learn to code, so every Friday I've been parking myself in some cafe to work on the freecodecamp.com curriculum. This means I've been going in search of...

Vegan Jewish Apple Cake

This cake was sexual. Oh my goodness. I went apple-picking with friends and am still trying to use up apples. This cake used 8, which seemed like a solid number to use up. I'm not usually a big cake person, I prefer brownies and all the ooey gooey stuff. But, my...

Finally Fudgy Vegan Brownies

It took me for-freaking-ever to find a vegan brownie recipe that lived up to my expectations. I've tried a lot of recipes and this one doesn't even have any weird ingredients like tofu or soy yogurt. After playing around with this VegWeb recipe for a year, I finally...

Vegan Dumplings and How to Steam Things without a Steamer Basket

A week ago I realized the obvious: You don't need a steamer to steam things. Also, you can use wonton wrappers to make things besides wontons! The novelty! This made the possibilities of my wonton wrappers endless! Not only could I make dumplings, I could make...

Sweet Potato Coconut Garlic Mash

This happened by accident this morning. I'm experimenting with eating more gluten free things, or rather, trying to drag myself out of the spaghetti-filled haze I got stuck in since winter due to lack of time and brain space! I'm not usually a big fan of sweet potato,...

Pizza!

A bit of a delay due to moving back into school and all that, but here I am with the first of not one, but two posts! First, some pizza! Okay, so all I did for this one was chop up the veggies and grate the "cheese", but it came out so well! I think I finally mastered...

A Good Cuppa Chai

Vegan MoFo Day #16! I had the best chai ever yesterday morning. Previously I'd just throw a chai tea bag in some hot water with milk and call it done, but taking the extra few minutes to simmer it really makes it amazing! I'd love to mix my own chai, but I'm not that...

Apples To-Go: Vegan Apple Hand Pies

Vegan MoFo Day #6! We've been getting a ton of apples in our farmshare, so when my housemate brought back a box of apples from apple-picking, it got a little apple-crazy around here. Afraid that they were going to go bad, one night we sat down, peeled all the apples,...

ANZAC Biscuits

I'll let Wiki speak a bit about what ANZAC biscuits (cookies) are for the uninformed: An Anzac biscuit is a sweet biscuit popular in Australia and New Zealand made using rolled oats, flour, desiccated coconut, sugar, butter, golden syrup, baking soda and boiling...

Sourdough Bagels

Okay, so this recipe isn't really my own making as I followed this one over at the Fresh Loaf exactly, but as a pretty amateur bread-baker a lot of the stuff on that post is over my head, so I thought I'd summarize it here with my pictures. For more details, you...

Vegan S’mores Sugar Cookie Bars

You guys, I've discovered the vegan goldmine. You know all that sugar cookie dough you have leftover from the holidays in your freezer (or is it just me)? Make this. Do not hesitate, just do it. Yes, it takes some time, but within it you find chocolate, vegan dulce de...

Butterscotch Rice Pudding with Toasted Hazelnuts

Vegan MoFo Day #5! First week, yeah!  Right before I moved away to university, there was an awesome little rice pudding shop in Northampton, MA, that has since closed down. Of course it closed down before I finally lived there, but alas. They had some 20 varieties of...

Steel Cut Oats Pancakes & Documenting a Pancake Adventure

For those who don't know, I spent most of my year abroad. In fact, these travels have continued now that I'm back in the US, which is what led to this pancake feast in Mystic, CT with a friend who was working there. You can't have brunch without pancakes and there are...

Last Day of Vegan Mofo 2016

I kinda fell off the Vegan MoFo bandwagon, oops. Lots has happened since my last post! The US took a sharp turn towards imploding (election), Thanksgiving happened, my blender started spitting out metal shards, I bought vegan camembert mold cultures, attended my first...

Far Away – Vegan MoFo Day 8

I had nothing for the close to home prompt yesterday so I decided to take a break. "Where is home?" is certainly a complicated question these days, and my answer tends to be along the lines of, "Which one?" Now, Vegan MoFo asks me, "If you dug straight down, where...
