Cook: Salisbury Steak with Tomato Gravy

On January sixteenth, I plopped a plate of greasy fried okra in front of J-Fur. It felt like a momentous day as we had finally moved past the halfway point of our January New Year’s resolution. Everyone else was going healthy, we thumbed our noses at that. Our goal was to ingest at least a helping of fried food each day for a month. After the […]

I took a brief  (12 minute) hiatus from vegan bacon grease wrestling this week to scour the web. Here’s some of what I found: Happenings: Going Vegan: Mexican Gray Wolves Can Be Killed For Eating Too Many Deer and Elk Casa Diablo, the Vegan Strip Club in Portland, is Getting Sued Vegan eBook: For the Dairy Free College Kid California Foie Gras Ban is Overturned […]

Drink: Sweet Potato, Banana and Strawberry Serum

The plump little fat kids have returned from their summertime adventure at weight loss camp and, thankfully, the regimen didn’t work. Florida’s strawberries are bigger, plumper and more out of shape than ever. This means that the next few weeks are going to be filled with gorging on anything (and everything) that mingles nicely with  one of nature’s fattest berries. Now I’m a morning smoothie kind […]

Food Pairing 101: What Goes Well With Chickpea and Dumpling Stew?

For years I was dating this girl who, how should I put this nicely, was very plain looking. Nothing stood out about her except that she had an amazing ability to absolutely disappear in a crowd. On at least a half dozen occasions I had to page her in Wal-Mart when I was ready to leave.  The two of us had a decent time together. We […]

Where We Eat: Cafe Hey

Cafe Hey is the restaurant version of Pretty in Pink. It is my Andie Walsh. Inside the little shack, located right near 275 in West Tampa, a bevy of vegan coffee, baked goods, soups, salads, vegan sandwiches and breakfast items are slung together with ease. The restaurant walls are made of exposed brick that is worn and faded from years of sun exposure. These walls […]

Cook: Vegan (Paleo Friendly) Green Bean Casserole

I try my hardest to treat my classroom like an airport. No bags left unattended or the hammer falls. I’m talking TSA, FBI, ATF, Girl Scouts, I’ll call them all in just to bring the threat level down to zero. I hate to be the bearer of bad news but, mommas, you can’t trust those elementary school kids. Who knows what kinds of things might be hiding […]

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. Here is that, and other stories, that caught my eye this week. Happenings: Jessica Chastain Buys Her Mom a Vegan Food Truck Why not lab grown milk? Whole Foods […]

Cook: Back Alley Pasta

I spent a large portion of my childhood in the back alleys. These alleys were dim, smoked cigarettes by the carton and blasted Billy Ray Cyrus from their speakers. They had big hair with lots of hairspray, rolled pants and coffee that came from vending machines. They also sold french ticklers and other weird sex items in the bathroom. I watched North Carolina lose in the […]

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 […]
