Cook: Pulled Tempeh Pizza Salad

Last Tuesday I visited Eats American Grill in South Tampa and, due to circumstances out of my control, I ate a whole basket of fried pickles with no help from anyone around me. Alright, alright, someone did sneak one from my grasp, but the rest of the basket was all me. The following night I visited a vegan pizza place and kindly offered to dispose of […]

Record Store Day at Mojo Books and Records

  Happy Record Store Day! Z-Bot and I decided to celebrate 2014′s version at Mojo Books and Records in Tampa. Why Mojo’s? Because inside they sell records and outside they hold a vegan bake sale. It is like Mojo had me in mind when they originally set this thing up. I stepped inside to get my fix of music first. I was most interested in picking […]

Cook: Beet, Pear and Avocado Salad with Onion Vinaigrette

After months and months of nothing but a liquid/mashy diet, the Z-Bot has finally started eating real human food. I’m talking tofu, rice, yogurt, fruits and veggies. This really changes things. Now when I settle in for a bit of cooking, I no longer need to prepare two completely different dishes. Instead, I can make one dish and tweak it to meet the tastes of […]

Cook: Quinoa Chorizo, Garbanzos and Pineapple Coulis in Pitas

I bought some expensive red quinoa last week with the intent of turning it into a vegan variation of chorizo. My ultimate goal was a pita stuffed with quinoa chorizo, garbanzo beans and pineapple coulis. This dish seemed a bit safe. Not that it wasn’t going to be tasty, just so easy to make. Where was the danger? So I decided to add some. I […]

Artist’s Cookbook: Raw-vocado Key Lime Pie Courtesy of Alice Brightsky

The road hasn’t always been easy for indie folk rock artist Alice Brightsky. In 2009, citing “creative and logistical roadblocks”, the overwhelmed artist walked away from the music world, leaving a partially finished solo debut album lying on the floor. After three years away, Brightsky returned with a renewed passion and determination for finishing the album. With the help of friend/producer Brandon Wilde, she was able […]

Kaleisia’s 9th Annual Gifts of Love

You’d be hard pressed to find a Tampa restaurant that is as invested in the community as Kaleisia Tea Lounge. For the past nine years the tea lounge has hosted an event called Gifts of Love. The premise behind the event is to raise money for a local non-profit (100 percent of all the proceeds raised at the event goes to the non-profit). This year’s […]
