    A few months ago we were offered a copy of Betty Goes Vegan for review purposes.  Jane agreed to cook up three recipes and we’d review them. In the meantime, we’ve suffered a series of unfortunate events, including a disaster with our refrigerator which resulted in a lot of eating out. (So far 2013 is not starting […]

  • Matzoh Ball Soup a la Vegan Table

    In the past I’ve written about certain foods we haven’t been able to successfully “veganize” — no matter what other people might say. One of the things we’d pretty much given up on was a Vegan Matzoh Ball Soup, but then two things happened… 1) We picked up a copy of The Vegan Table by […]

    If Jane ever leaves me, I’ll know where to find her. She’ll be back in NY looking for Mark Bittman. She loves the man, even if he’s older than the typical male who might turn her head. Why does she love him? Well, there’s his cookbook, How to Cook Everything Vegetarian. She religiously reads his […]

  • In honor of Chanukah, and the first day of winter, Jane made the matzoh ball soup recipe from Vegan with a Vengeance. This is the second time she’s made this recipe. The first time, the matzoh balls disintegrated.  The recipe suggests refrigerating the matzoh ball mixture one hour to overnight.  We were both excited about […]

  • RFDs Asparagus Soup

    I’ve been going to the farmers market to get my produce ever since I moved to California.  Over the years I’ve noticed a change in the “seasonality” of certain produce, notably strawberries and asparagus.  They used to be available only in the spring.  But not anymore.  The local growers have figured out how to make […]
