Vegan Kuala Lumpur – A 4 Day Layover in Kuala Lumpur

This is not a guide, so much as a post about how to do a short layover in Kuala Lumpur as a vegan. KL is a major airport hub, but it's worth stopping over for at least a few days for the vegan eats alone. I didn't really think much of KL at all, but decided to stay a...

Vegan Bali – What I Ate During A Week in Ubud

Vegan Bali, I've been following pictures of amazing-looking food for ages. Even so, I cut Bali out of my itinerary at first. There is just so much hype, and this contrarian can't handle it. Then I realized it would cost be the same in flights to stop over in Bali on...

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...

Recipes

Did you know this page started out as a vegan food blog? Here’s some of my vegan recipe posts. You can check out my Vegan Recipe Index, or my Readers’ Favorites too.

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...

Raw Chocolate Macaroons

Another delayed recipe from my Raw Food Week Challenge. When I originally made these, I used a recipe I found randomly on the internet and didn't save. This recipe called for keeping it in the freezer to keep them solid enough, so I had this stowed away for about a...

Chocolate Banana Almond Butter Pie

Bananas, chocolate and almonds make a good combination. This was another one of those raw recipes that I ended up un-rawifying, but it was delicious as I'm sure its raw counterpart is also. I got it from the blog Adventures of Raw Goddess Heathy, which I am a big fan...

Ghanaian Red Red Stew (Gluten-free)

Here's a recipe for you all after tons of travel posts! I actually made this during the winter, after being inspired by a similar dish at the Berlin Street Food Thursday. I had some black-eyed peas sitting around and I didn't know what to do with them. I found this...

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...

Mochi Truffles (Riceflour Truffles)

Vegan MoFo Day #15 All credit for this goes to my friend, Gulliver! I believe we are kitchen soulmates as everything he makes in his kitchen wants to be in my belly. Last November, he posted on my Facebook wall asking me to test a recipe for him, which was born during...

Vegan Cappuccino Muffins

Vegan MoFo Day #4! It took two tries to perfect this recipe, but holycrap are they delicious. The first time they came out tasting good, but didn't rise at all, which I attribute to a wet:dry ratio with too much, well...wet. Oops! I didn't account for the fact that...

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...

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...

Tofutti-Free Vegan Cheesecake

I've had some good vegan cheesecake before, but virtually every recipe I've ever come across has used Tofutti Better Than Cream Cheese. As this stuff is up there on the processed scale, I've been searching high and low for a Tofutti-Free recipe. At first I tried this...

Sweet Potato Salsa

This is a really easy recipe that I stole from my friend Lizzi. Seriously, every time I make it and take it somewhere everyone freaks out over it. It's actually kind of silly because it's one of the easiest things I've made. People never believe it is vegan either,...

Peanut Butter Filled Chocolate Cookies

  I made a second attempt at these peanut butter filled chocolate cookies from the Mac & Cheese blog a few days ago and they came out really well. The first time I tried to make them, I didn't have peanut butter so in a fit of cooking-craving mania I tried to make...

My Carry-On Only Packing List (Europe Friendly)

I've been holding back on this post as I wasn't sure if the world really needed another packing list. However, as someone based in Germany, I was SO tired getting excited by an item on someone's packing list...just to realize it's only available in the United States....
