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.

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...

Raw Cranberry Vanilla Vegan Brownies

I've always had an interest in raw foodism and like the idea of adding more raw fruits and veggies into my diet. While these are not as rich as their cooked and sugar-laden counterparts, they were tasty and made a great snack. Plus, they're pretty easy to whip up if...

Raw Strawberry Cheesecake

I'm back. Mostly I've just been cooking stuff I've already posted on here, but I saw this recipe on the Post Punk Kitchen Blog and it looked really interesting to me for some reason, so I had to try it. Thus, this is not my recipe at all, but it's pretty tasty! I put...

Vegan Chicken (Seitan) Salad

Vegan MoFo Day #21 - Vegan Chicken Salad So I thought I was done with MoFo for the year, but then I sort of accidentally made vegan chicken salad and voila! I was in Whole Paychecks, I mean, Whole Foods yesterday because I heard Tofurkeys were on super sale after...

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...

Yummy Apple Tartlets

We just picked 1/2 bushel of apples, so there are a lot around to use up! I really wanted apple pie tonight, but I knew if I made a whole one I'd eat it all, so I improvised these little wonders in some cupcake tins. They came out surprisingly well given I pulled the...

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...

Vegan Cheesemaking Guide – Vegan MoFo Day 6

So you want to make your own vegan cheese? Today's MoFo prompt is to write about comfort food - and vegan cheesy things are certainly a comfort food for me! I've had this post sitting in my drafts for ages, so I figured it was finally time to finish it up and post it....

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...

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...

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...

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...

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....
