Come on people, we all occasionally eat junk. I’m just being honest about it. This is what I ate the other weekend, in bed, while watching Neflix. Annie’s organic Mac & Cheese (at least it wasn’t Kraft) topped with crunchy vegan bacos and a healthy number of pickled jalapenos. I probably dumped some hot sauce on it, too. Gross, right? But it was sooo good. … Continue reading Junk: Mac & Cheese, with Bacos and Jalapenos
Another winning recipe from Super Natural everyday, this quick dinner involves soaking the mung beans ahead of time (canned would be way to mushy).

AND a dedicated brunch menu – hurray! … Continue reading Shirred Tofu at Local 44
What a long, strange trip it’s been. In the last month I’ve traveled to Indiana, New Orleans, Berlin, Michigan and Ohio, and I’ve made good friends with the Detroit airport. Needless to say, I’m behind. But I promise to catch up fast, both with my travels and with some of the delicious spring lunches and dinners I’ve been enjoying. A few weeks ago I received … Continue reading Dilled Green Beans with Seitan
