Vegan Desserts Make The Grade

Friday, February 13, 2009 Lane 8

I’m continually impressed with how mainstream veganism is becoming.  Sure, it’s not always easy to get a vegan meal at a restaurant without “working with” your server.  But it is getting easier.  And the number of vegan products seems to be increasing.  Now, we’re even getting representation in Gourmet magazine.   [keep reading…]

Tuesday, September 2, 2008 Lane 11

Many of you have probably already seen The Vegan’s Hundred list.  There are other ”Hundred” food memes circulating round the blogosphere (The Omnivore’s Hundred, which started the trend; and The Vegetarian’s Hundred).  Generally these a little bit of fluff we bloggers can use a way of introducing ourselves.  Jane and [keep reading…]
