Vegan Street Food in Penang, Malaysia

Vegan Street Food in Penang, Malaysia

I ate so much vegan street food in Penang, Malaysia that needed its own post. While at first I didn't think Penang lived up to all the (vegan) hype, the street food was a game changer. Of course it takes a bit longer to figure out which street food is vegan as most...

WTF are Collards?!: Easy Collards with Potatoes and Tofu

Vegan MoFo Day #1! This was literally something I threw together. I got a bunch of collards in my farm share, and while I think I've eaten them before, I had no idea exactly how to go about making them delicious. I tried Googling things, but everything was either...

Saucy Garam Masala Noodles

Vegan MoFo Day #6  Here is a quick meal idea for a busy Monday. I threw this together for a late breakfast (yes, I'm weird) a few days ago as a let's-use-up-what's-in-the-fridge kinda meal and ended up marveling over it's deliciousness. I am now obsessed with garam...

Bratapfel (Baked Apple)

Vegan MoFo Day #17! Last January, I worked on a smallholding in Kleinenhain, Germany for 2+ weeks through Help Exchange. Of the three farms I worked on, my time in Germany, by far, left the biggest impression on me. My hosts, Angelika and Axel, not only cooked vegan...

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...

Sourdough Cinnamon Raisin Bread

My first foray into sourdough bread making, and by extension sourdough starters, was during this winter break. Needless to say, I sort of failed. My sourdough starter just wouldn't get bubbly or active enough. I think it would have maybe with more time, but eventually...

Vegan Peanut Butter Mousse Cup Pie

I've been posting a lot of desserts lately. Can you tell I like chocolate and peanut butter? No matter, this is possibly the best dessert I've ever made. The best part is I made it up all by myself! Oh. My. Gosh. was this fabulous. Vegan Peanut Butter Mousse Cup Pie...

Vegan New Years Party Food

I usually throw a party for New Years and this year was no different. I think this one went especially well food-wise. At least, I thought everything was yummy. I don't have pictures for it all, but here's what I made: 1. Pecan Rocha from the Playing With My Food...

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...

Famous Tofu Scramble

When I tried tofu scramble for the first time, it was chunky and bland, resembling the large uncooked and "marinated" slices of tofu my dining hall likes to serve as food. Now that I'm older and wiser, I must say my scramble has come a long way too. I've finally got...

Vegan Truffles

If you thought truffles were difficult to make, think again. I was also under the same impression until I found this recipe off of Food.com. Now truffles fall under the "really impressive looking but actually hella easy" category in my repertoire. The hardest part is...

Chili Infused Vodka & A Firecracker Cocktail Just in Time for Summer!

Now, it's pretty rare I experience an entirely new flavor sensation, but man-o-man, this drink blew my mind. First discovered when checking out the amazing restaurant, Miya's Sushi in New Haven, Connecticut a few years ago. I ordered their cocktail called 'Bonobo...
