Everything Bagels

On a recent visit to Trader Joe’s I discovered the everything bagel seasoning blend.  I decided it was a great excuse to try making my own bagels!  I used the recipe from Vegan Brunch by Isa Chandra Moskowitz.  We can purchase bagels locally at Collegetown Bagels, but nothing compares to the ones we could get… read more

Blueberry Pie

I bought an extra flat of blueberries from my CSA share.  Blueberries are my favorite berry of all the berries.  I knew I had to make a pie as soon as I got them home!  The rest I may just eat by the handful.  The recipe for this pie came from Vegan Pie in the… read more

Also, its nice to have something sweet for a coffee break.  The recipe was very easy to veganize as well because the only non-vegan… read more

Ithaca gets a food truck

I have been having a very busy weekend, so this post is extra short. I have to say posting every day is a lot of work! If you have ever visited Ithaca, NY you probably already know we don’t have many vegan food options. Many restaurants are vegan friendly, but none are 100% vegan. This… read more

Today is one of those chilly, grey and rainy autumn days here in Ithaca.  It is a common theme in upstate New York as summer ends. The perfect day to laze about the house, and to catch up on reading. With the cold and damp weather outside, I found myself wanting to make something warm… read more
