Food Pairing 101: What Goes Well With “Sleep City” by Radio Birds?

For this year’s cookie exchange I decided something new was in order. I had wowed with my chickpea cookies, played lead fiddle with the iced up whoopie pies and smacked them upside the head with a crack pie. What haven’t I done? Gone simple. Gone easy. Taken someone else’s recipe and just moved along. So, that’s what I did. I flipped through the pages of Vegan […]

There were some really disturbing stories and hoaxes that hit the news circuit this week. Thank God for the world of veganism where no one tried to kill anyone. Oh, wait. I forgot about Whole Foods.

Where We Eat (and drink): Naga Tea

Thanksgiving is a time of gluttonous delight for most Americans. We overeat to the point of discomfort and then spend the days afterwards wallowing in the aftereffects of our poor decisions. This year, I preplanned better than in the past. I went on a diet. A tea diet. It worked like this. Eat no breakfast, drink a tea filled with boba for a lunch time meal, […]

Cook: Tempeh Ramen

So there’s this vision that has been running through my mind for the last few hours. It is me, walking up to the edge of a gigantic river that is full of man eating piranha-sharks. A whole slew of bloggers are about a half mile behind me and they are running as fast as they can. On their hands. Now running fast on your hands isn’t […]

Thanksgiving is closing in. The amount of articles about “dealing” with vegans as Thanksgiving dinner guests has increased exponentially. Must mean the animal product free style is making some waves. Here are some things, aside from those damn vegan dinner guest articles, that caught my eye this week: Articles: How to Cope with a Vegan Guest at Thanksgiving Free Advertising: Unilever Sues Vegan Mayo Company […]

Food Flavored Artist: Open Your Eyes by United Fruit

The United Fruit Company was a US multinational that flourished during the early to mid 20th century. The company dealt mostly with bananas but also had a bit of a soft spot for dictators and monopolies as well. They enjoyed enormous privilege in Central America thanks to their willingness to oppose organized unions by backing the authoritarian governments that quashed labor unrest at any cost. The company has […]

Cook: Vegan Loose Meat Sandwiches

Nell Frizzel, a UK contributor for munchies (VICE’s food channel), recently spoke to Essex-born artist Matthew de Kersaint Giraudeau about his “Communal Juicing” exhibit. The idea behind the exhibit is that juicing takes a piece of food, extracts juice from it leaving behind a “shitty pulp”. Mathew questions why anyone would do this? It makes no difference to the world or to your life if you […]

Where We Eat: The Corner Store

I have to admit that what initially drew me to The Corner Store, located in the historic downtown of Plant City, was their bold and memorable motto, the logo it helped create and their brand new brunch menu (only four weeks old) which has consistently included vegan biscuits and gravy. The motto, EAT WELL OR DIE, represents a number of The Corner Store’s most important philosophies. First and foremost, […]

Cook: Apple and Sausage Casserole

It was just after midnight on Halloween night when I heard a rap, rap, rapping at my front door. Only thirty seconds before I had clicked the off button on my television effectively erasing all signs of the blood, guts and senseless acts of violence that had been swimming before my eyes for the last hour and a half. I feared the unknown in a way […]
