  • Vegan Lasagna

    I’m a fan of the vegan brownies and vegan banana nut chip muffin recipes in The Joy of Vegan Baking, by Colleen Patrick-Goudreau.  So when we found out that she had a new cookbook out,  The Vegan Table, I rushed right out to get a copy.  (Okay, I ran to the computer and ordered it… […]

  • Unfortunately for our guests, it’s been “winter” here. By that I mean, the weather is not cooperating, and it’s been rainy and unseasonably cold here. The high yesterday was only 64°F. That’s actually cold for Los Angeles! And while we welcome the respite from the hot summer weather we know is imminent, our company would […]

    At the beginning of the month put together a list of of his favorite vegan cookbook recipes for the year. I must have been sleeping, somehow I missed it. But I also read the Vegan Planet blog, and Robin posted about it today. Having reviewed the recipes with Jane earlier, we feel compelled to […]

  • Grr. Some of you may have heard about yesterday’s disaster on the 405 (Los Angeles freeway near LAX airport). A truck overturned and traffic was absolutely abominable in the area ALL day!!!! Needless to say, my commute was unpleasant, in both directions. Alhtough certainly not as unpleasant as the poor truck driver who perished in […]

    Looks Like Something the Cat Coughed Up

  • Our new vegan lifestyle has led to a huge increase in our tofu consumption. Looking to replace meat with some kind of protein, tofu has been the easiest choice. Of course, there is conflicting information out there about just how much tofu you should be consuming. Admittedly, I have done only the most cursory of […]

  • We’ve been vegans for a little over three months now. Since we’re old dogs (in our 40s), it’s been a bit of a challenge to change our way of thinking about what a meal should be, and that’s been harder on Jane than on me, since she prepares most of what we eat. To date, […]

  • So, we went from brutal summer heat to winter overnight. We even had over an inch of rain (that’s slightly less rain than we had all of last year!), which is highly unusual in that we normally don’t have rain between April and October. It’s been like winter here. That was enough for us to […]

    Palak Tofu

  • In the past, Jane and I have truly enjoyed Indian cuisine. However, being vegan, we are a little reluctant to even try our favorite restaurants. Chicken Tikka Masala is not a vegan dish! And most of the dishes we most enjoy, even though they could be adapted with tofu, contain ghee and/or cream. Alas. Jane […]

  • Jane is the head of this household. So with her decision to become vegan, she took on the monumental task of re-learning how to cook. So far, she’s doing pretty well. In the month that we’ve been “doin’ the vegan thing” as she calls it, there’s only been one “let’s not do this again” meal. […]
