Vegan Lasagna

Vegan Lasagna

Monday, April 26, 2010 Lane 6

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 [keep reading…]

Hearty Quinoa Recipe for Breakfast

Monday, May 26, 2008 Lane 9

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 [keep reading…]

At the beginning of the month Vegan.com 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 [keep reading…]

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 [keep reading…]

Looks Like Something the Cat Coughed Up

Thursday, October 18, 2007 Lane 3

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 [keep reading…]

Spanakopita

Saturday, October 13, 2007 Lane 0

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 [keep reading…]

Hearty Winter Fare

Wednesday, September 26, 2007 Lane 0

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 [keep reading…]

Palak Tofu

Saturday, September 22, 2007 Lane 4

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 [keep reading…]

What’s Cooking?

Saturday, September 1, 2007 Lane 1

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 [keep reading…]
