Vegan Nom Noms Travels: Bonn, Düsseldorf and Solingen Vegfest

Bonn is in the German state North Rhine-Westphalia and is the former capital of West Germany, before the capital got moved back to Berlin. It's about 5 hours from Berlin, or, in my case, a 50 minute Ryanair flight. I was in Bonn in late September to visit some friends...

Interview with Kristin Lajeunesse – Will Travel for Vegan Food

Vegan travelers and travel enthusiasts raise your hands! Today I'm super excited to share an interview with fellow vegan nomad Kristin Lajeunesse, author of the super brand spanking new book, Will Travel for Vegan Food! I've been following Kristin's journeys for...

Chocolate Coffee (Almost Raw) Dessert Cups

I have about 239495358 pounds of raw cashews in my kitchen so I've been doing anything I can to use them in just about everything. These were really good and pretty filling due to all the nuts. Definitely satisfied my dessert craving without that much sugar,...

Marzipan Semolina Pudding (Grießflammeri)

Last time I was in Berlin, I got a marzipan semolina pudding parfait at Goodies that was to die for. Ever since then I've been trying to figure out what was in it (semolina in a dessert...weird) and how to recreate it. I think I finally touched upon it! This is based...

Cold Brewed Coffee

Following the thought of "Things That Are Painfully Obvious", a friend sent along a link to me a week or two ago about cold brewed coffee. Now, I had heard of this before, but always assumed it was tedious or complicated and involved fancy equipment. Nope! Previously...

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...

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

The same day of pumpkin everything,  I was craving candy. Saying as it was the day after Halloween, I was feeling a bit left out compared to everyone that could go door-to-door filling bags with pure sugar. I wanted to gorge myself on candy too, dammit! Why are all...

Mustard Marinated Textured Vegetable Protein (TVP) Cutlets

 This recipe was hiding in my How to Use Dried TVP post, but it gets a bit lost in there so I thought it deserved it's own post. I just made these mustard marinated TVP cutlets again and remembered how delicious they are, so here you go! The picture above is before it...

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...

How To Use Dried Textured Vegetable Protein (TVP)

Maybe I am a bit slow, but it took me a really long time to figure out what the eff to do with dried TVP. It's one of those magic vegan things you see everywhere...textured vegetable protein...like nutritional yeast, and I wanted to be in the club too! Horrid...

Ode to Vegan Cherry Pie Oatmeal

Got this beauty at the Pullman Hotel in Dubai, where my colleagues are staying. The first breakfast I had there was a bit lackluster, except for this Pakistani-style Aloo Ghobi that was delicious (yes, for breakfast). After the disappointment with the first...

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. [amd-zlrecipe-recipe:12] After the...

Thai-licious Vegan Massaman Curry

I took a risk last time I went out for Thai food and strayed away from my beloved Pad Thai to try some Massaman Curry my friends recommended. It was definitely a good decision, this stuff was gooood. Sadly, my wallet keeps me from indulging in this delicacy as...

Raw Cashew Cheese

A bit delayed, lots of people mentioned that they'd be interested in learning more about how I made the raw cashew cheese. Though it takes a couple days, it's really easy! Most of the time you're just waiting for the cashews to soak and letting the finished product...

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...

Sainsbury’s Vegan Cheeses – Vegan MoFo Day 5

The prompt for today was about my favorite late night snack. I'm not a big late night snacker lately...if only for the fact that I'm usually passed the eff out by 11:30pm. So, I'm going rogue and writing about my quest to try all the new Sainsbury's "Free From" range...
