Silk-y, Chocolate-y Goodness

Saturday, June 21, 2008 Lane 8

Jane and I have become addicted to Silk’s Light Chocolate Milk. We probably go through a half gallon every week or two. It’s our “dessert.” Someone even suggested to us that it makes a great hot chocolate, although it’s been too hot to try it since we heard the suggestion. [keep reading…]

BBQ Grill – Vegan Style

Tuesday, May 27, 2008 Lane 4

Yesterday was Memorial Day, and as is tradition, we grilled. As I mentioned previously, we grilled for some omni friends and family and their children. Everyone knew upfront that they would be consuming a vegan meal, and everyone seemed to be willing to give it a go. We were pretty [keep reading…]

Vegan Burgers For Memorial Day

Tuesday, May 20, 2008 Lane 12

It’s that time of year again here in the United States. It’s the unofficial start of summer. Actually, I’m a little premature. Monday will be the Memorial Day holiday, and this weekend is when most of us break out the grill. Now living in Southern California, I have truly lost [keep reading…]

Jane’s Addiction

Saturday, May 17, 2008 Lane 8

Jane is an addict. There I’ve said it. She’s not in denial of her habit, and they do say that admitting you have a problem is the first step down the road to a cure. But I’m not sure that she’s seeking a cure! So what is she addicted to? [keep reading…]

Trader Joe’s Chicken-Less Strips

Thursday, March 27, 2008 Jane 13

Hi everyone. It’s Jane writing tonight. Lane and I realized that he’s hogging all the spotlight, so tonight I’m getting the byline. To tell the truth, we often collaborate on these posts. I tend to spend time in the morning researching what we’ll write about (time permitting), and put together [keep reading…]

Eating Meatless and Loving It

Saturday, March 8, 2008 Lane 3

Tonight, we had a few friends over for an impromptu dinner. Typically when company comes over, Jane goes all out and prepares a more formal meal something akin to the Valentine’s dinner that we had recently. But tonight we ate what we would’ve eaten if Jane was just cooking for [keep reading…]

Trader Joe’s Vegetable Biryani

Sunday, February 17, 2008 Lane 6

Jane was planning on making this recipe for dinner tonight. It’s an Indian dish that looks rather intriguing. We have all the ingredients on hand and so I was looking forward to a new and (hopefully) delicious meal. Alas, it was not to be. It was gardening weather out there [keep reading…]

Gardenburger’s — Black Bean Chipotle Burgers

Wednesday, February 6, 2008 Lane 5

One of the hardest things about being vegan is a lack of convenience foods. Jane doesn’t always feel like cooking, and even though we live in Los Angeles, a place known for its culinary diversity, restaurants can be problematic. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining, I know we have [keep reading…]

Home Made Almond Milk

Monday, February 4, 2008 Lane 15

All I can say is wow. This stuff blows away what you can buy in the store. Jane received a Soyabella Milk Maker for Christmas this year. So far, it’s been amazing. The milks you can make are far superior to what you can buy, as is often the case [keep reading…]

Vegan Baked Goods

Friday, February 1, 2008 Lane 11

So far, it’s been our experience that baked vegan desserts leave a little to be desired. Bread doesn’t seem to lose much in translation as often bread recipes do not call for non-vegan ingredients anyway. Most of the baked desserts we’ve tried however, have paled in comparison to their non-vegan [keep reading…]

That’s a Wrap!

Friday, January 25, 2008 Lane 2

Tonight we had Yves Lettuce Wraps for dinner. This was the second time we’ve had this product, and both times we’ve really enjoyed it. It’s been over six months since I’ve had chicken, but this product tastes exactly as I remember the non-vegan version tasted. The package claims to be [keep reading…]

Whole Foods – Vegan Chicken Curry Salad

Sunday, January 13, 2008 Lane 10

Yesterday, Jane and I went to Whole Foods to stock up on some of the vegan supplies we can’t get at our local Trader Joe’s. While we were there we also stopped at the prepared foods counter. We picked up the vegan chicken curry salad and some fresh hand-made tortillas. [keep reading…]

Vegan Eggnog

Thursday, December 13, 2007 Lane 6

If that doesn’t sound like an oxymoron… About a week ago Jane bought a quart of Silk Eggnog. We’ve enjoyed the Silk Coffee-Milk and Silk Chocolate Milk, so Jane figured we’d give this a try for the holidays. One of our guests to this blog, Shannon, commented that this product [keep reading…]

Season’s Eatings

Friday, November 23, 2007 Lane 4

Thanksgiving is all about traditions. This was our 10th Thanksgiving together. Our first holiday together was Thanksgiving. For us, it has become a day we recommit to our relationship. As part of our tradition, we have our dinner alone, followed by dessert with our relatives. So this way we have [keep reading…]

Mmmm…. Riblets

Wednesday, November 21, 2007 Lane 1

So yesterday I was whining a bit, and feeling deprived. Today I’m doing much better. Jane made us BBQ Riblets for dinner. They’re a Gardenburger product and quite tasty, if I might add. It’s the barbeque sauce that really makes the dish. It’s got a really nice peppery tang and [keep reading…]

Whole Foods

Tuesday, November 13, 2007 Lane 1

Whole Foods, an upscale “healthy” grocery store, opened the doors to its largest Whole Foods Market west of the Rockies here in Pasadena. It’s a monstrosity of a building at 76,770 square feet. And it’s not just a store — it has a gigantic food court including a Wine and [keep reading…]

Cream Cheese Alternative

Monday, November 12, 2007 Lane 14

Jane and I read labels now, religiously. Adopting a vegan diet has ensured that we read labels because who knows what they’re sneaking into your food! The thing that makes me most insane is the milk product in most soy cheeses. If you’re not manufacturing a dairy based cheese, why [keep reading…]

There’s Some Weird Stuff In My Kitchen

Monday, October 8, 2007 Lane 0

These days there are some weird things in my cupboards. I was going to make myself some oatmeal for my breakfast yesterday morning, actually I did. But before I got around to making it, I had one of those “what the #$@#%! this?” moments. I reached into the cabinet to [keep reading…]

Mocha Frappuccino — Who Needs It?

Thursday, October 4, 2007 Lane 0

So yesterday Jane brought me home the Silk Coffee flavored soy beverage. Yummy. It’s like a Starbucks Mochaccino. Ok, I don’t really know if it’s like a Starbuck’s Mochaccino, but it certainly makes a nice iced afternoon snack. Jane’s not fond of coffee, but she had a sip and decided [keep reading…]

Veggie Burgers – Yum!

Sunday, September 16, 2007 Lane 4

So Jane’s been a little reluctant to try to make a vegan burger on her own. We’ve had a few when we’ve gone out for dinner, but they tend to be a little crumbly. She’s been making Dr. Praegers Tex Mex burgers on occasion at home. Last night we had [keep reading…]
