  • It’s been unseasonably cold here in So Cal.  There’s snow to 3,000 feet.  Which means, when the rains stop and the clouds clear, we’ll see lots of snow on all the mountaintops around here.  I might actually know, visually, that it’s winter here! Tonight, we had the perfect winter fare, a hearty soup that Jane […]

  • After all the last few posts on Proposition 2, I thought it might be time for something a little lighter.  It’s still a little early, but Jane is starting to think about our Thanksgiving menu.  Thanksgiving is one of our favorite holidays and last year was our first Thanksgiving as vegans.  We will very likely […]

  • Before Jane and I were married, the only time I ever willingly ate red cabbage was when there were a few pieces in a salad I ordered at some restaurant. I’d never found it worthy of eating, there were always other options that were much better. But Jane loves the stuff. Typically she doesn’t make […]

  • We occasionally get mail from people new to veganism, asking for meal suggestions. We’ll often have a tofu and veggie stir fry, especially during the summer months, when the farmers market is overflowing with fresh, ripe offerings. Now okra is something we hadn’t tried until about two years ago. We had seen it at the […]

  • No, that’s not a typo in the title. Here’s the rap… , the hummus recipe is below. I found this video on YouTube the other day. It’s stuck in my head, and I’ve been tormenting Jane with it. Now I’m sharing it with you. Enjoy! (It’s not terribly P.C., but I don’t think anything is […]

  • It’s February and it’s still cold here. I realize that sounds ridiculous to most of you; February is the dead of winter after all. But here in Southern California, it is often warm enough to have turned the heat off already, and the windows open. Not to mention the fact that there is a definite […]

  • Jane has always loved to bake. And I have always loved eating her baked goods. Times have been lean since eggs and butter are out of the picture, but today when I got home I was greeted by a heavenly aroma wafting out of the kitchen. I sniffed my way in, and what did my […]

  • As I’ve mentioned before, sometimes it’s a bit difficult for Jane to come up with new things to make on the fly since we’re still new to the vegan thing. If she’s been busy and hasn’t give any thought to what we’ll be having, and if there are no leftovers from a previous meal, she’ll […]

  • We live in Southern California, and because of that, we have “Summer” sometimes through November! But that doesn’t seem to be the case this year. We had a brutal heat wave last week, but that’s a distant memory. High temps of “only” 70 with HEAVY rain the past couple of days…. You can feel an […]
