Been going there for years! The owners are very kind people and not to mention the food is just delicious. It's a great place to bring your friends who are not vegan/vegetarian to show them not all vegetarian food is created alike. It's by far the best tasting vegetarian food I've ever had that captures flavors seemingly identical to bacon, chicken meat....

Thank you for another vegan-oriented post. But, "and to cook vegan, you need creativity"? On the contrary; unlike meat and dairy, vegetables don't have to be overly cooked, processed or seasoned to taste phenomenal. Not to mention that everything tastes better when no animals are harmed in the making of your meal.

To go along with the theme, we served gluten free cupcakes decorated with constellations at our Astrology Picnic. They’re a fun and fairly easy cupcake to make at home – not to mention sinfully rich and chocolaty for a gluten free option.  Here is how to make them yourself. Read more »

Kinfolk Dinner Series

Last weekend FP Brigette and I got to attend an amazing dinner put on here in Philadelphia by the people at Kinfolk! For those of you who don’t know what Kinfolk is, it’s a magazine produced by a group of artists “advocating the natural approach to entertaining.” The pages are filled with amazing photography, inspiring articles, and an emphasis on art, design, and spending time with friends.

I bet the decor and details at the dinner was beautiful. I just visited Terrain in CT for the first time this weekend and was blown away by the design there! Looks like a fun time :)

Post image for Miso-Glazed Sea Bass

They say that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, but I think that the way to mine is through miso-glazed sea bass. After hours of marinating, the miso mixture keeps the fish tender and then, when cooking, it caramelizes on the surface. Read more »

These cup cakes are delicious!! I decided to make them a little healthier and substituted non-fat plain greek yogurt for the sour cream, whole wheat flour, and cut the butter amount in half by using half butter and half unsweetened apple sauce! They still tasted amazing! enjoy :)
Megan -May 13, 2012, 3:00PM
These are so cute!! I just don't like oatmeal and raisin mixed together..maybe coconut and chocolate chip :)

Post image for Cinco de Mayo: The Recipes

In the spirit of Cinco de Mayo, today we’ve got some tasty fiesta-inspired treats – and just because you’re partying Mexican-style doesn’t mean you can’t still eat clean and healthy. Ditch all that heavy cheese and sugary margarita mix for vegan taco dip and homemade mango margaritas.  Read more »

"just because you’re partying Mexican-style doesn’t mean you can’t still eat clean and healthy." So real mexican food is dirty and greasy? If you seriously believe this, then don't eat our food and/or appropriate it. It's disrespectful. You guys should really think about what you say before you post it up. Thanks.
Alexandra -May 06, 2012, 8:42PM
Thanks so much for the wonderful recipe! Totally made the margarita tonight and it turned out great :)
