     Oh, how I coveted other kids' Flakies when I was a kid. My mom would never buy such swill, of course, which only increased the allure of pre-packaged pastries.  There may or may not be beef tallow in Flakies, so if you are craving a treat from your Canadian childhood this recipe is for you.  The tang of the raspberry gets mellowed by the creamy filling, both of which are complemented by layers of buttery pastry.  I made my own butter this time--I use just a pinch of salt and it is absolutely  perfect for baking.  INGREDIENTS- 1 recipe easy puff pastry- 1…

    Fall has officially returned, and with it my penchant for soups. This broccoli tahini bisque is almost as easy to make as it is luscious. Yeah, “luscious.” You read that right! Restaurant Week wasn’t something I’d ever taken note of, probably on account of the fact that I’m not a middle-aged rich suburbanite foodie. So it was purely coincidental that the first time I went to G-Zen, a fancy vegan restaurant in Branford, was during Restaurant Week. Really, it was serendipitous, because G-Zen is expensive, and my partner and I got to try a half dozen of their dishes…

Finally daring to innovate beyond two chocolate wafers filled with vanilla ice cream, some very exciting developments are turning the marketplace into a very sweet scene, indeed. So Delicious has certainly been busy in recent days, and my backlog of photos provides ample evidence. This is only the tip of the iceberg when it…

    The tomatoes are coming in fast and furiously, from our garden and from the gardens of friends. We have big ones and little ones, red ones and yellow ones. We're eating them on salads, in sandwiches and many other dishes, but it's hard to keep up.  Yesterday, I slow-roasted a small tray of tomatoes of various sizes and varieties and knew I could do something with them for dinner that night.If you've never slow-roasted tomatoes, cut them in half horizontally if round, lengthwise if the long paste type.  Cover your rimmed baking sheet with foil and then with baking parchment.

    More kale!  These days I'm constantly looking for great ways to use the ever-abundant kale supply coming out of our garden. Today I give you my version of an old Martha Stewart recipe (from 2009), to which I made a few changes.  1.) I lowered the oil content from 1/2 cup to 2 tablespoons (and I used olive oil); 2.) I used julienned carrots instead of "coins"; and 3.) I "massaged" the kale-- which is just rubbing the sliced raw kale for a very few minutes to break down some of the connective tissue of the kale leaves so that it is softer. I really liked the idea of the peanut…

In addition, the perpendicular arrangement of the hinges causes an unequal quantity of pressure to be put in the hinges that are different.

Local agencies will also track them to report to the FBI. Now that animal cruelty, including animal neglect, is included in the FBI’s Uniform Crime Report, there is a real incentive for law enforcement agencies to pay closer attention to such incidents.

  • Importance of Relationships Counselors in Today’s Stress Filled Society

    3 Apr 2014 | 8:52 pm
    There is no doubt that relationships between individuals are many times decided by emotions alone rather than being guided by logic and practicalities.

  • Employment Strategies

    17 Mar 2014 | 10:01 pm
    Finding a job and building our career is not as straightforward and simple as we think. Universities and colleges spend time and money preparing their students for the job market and equipping them with skills that will put them ahead of other keen job seekers. The fierce competition for jobs has caused companies to put rigorous recruitment processes in place and consequently, candidates will require different skills to pass multiple stages of the selection process before they will finally be offered a job. Due to the stringent selection processes implemented by companies, some individuals…

Not all elected officials are in the pocket of the meat industry, though. Did you hear the one about the congressman who went vegan? No, for real.  Proving that investigative journalism is alive and well, Reuters had a very potent story this week about the poultry industry’s routine drugging of chickens.

  • Healthy Coconut and Macadamia Nut Treats

    Tracy Russell
    22 Sep 2014 | 3:20 am
    I got the idea for these healthy coconut and macadamia nut treats when I moved from Massachusetts to upstate New York this summer. I needed to eat up the food in my refrigerator before the move, and that’s where this tasty little treat idea came from. I had a bag of Macadamia nuts and cashews that were open and didn’t have a lot left in them. I use just one tablespoon of raw honey as a sweetener in this recipe, which I find to be enough. Make sure you use coconut butter and not coconut oil. They are not the same thing and coconut oil will make them too soft. It can be hard to find…

  • Why Do Green Smoothies Burn My Mouth/Throat?

    Green smoothies are delicious, nutritious super-meals. But for some people, certain ingredients used in a smoothie can bite back by inflicting a burning or itchy sensation in the mouth, or even causing blisters. There are three main reasons why drinking a green smoothie might give you a burning sensation in your mouth or throat. 1 – Oral Allergy Syndrome The most common is that you have an allergy to one of the ingredients you used to make the smoothie. Some of the most common allergenic fruits include bananas, mangoes, papaya, kiwifruit, apples, oranges, cantaloupes and strawberries,…
  • Chocolate Covered Cherry Green Smoothie Recipe

    I love fresh cherries! They are one of my favorite fruits. I buy them in bulk while they are in season and freeze them for later use. I also use the frozen cherries in my favorite vegan cherry ice cream recipe! Cherries are loaded with antioxidants. They also contain beta carotene, vitamin C, potassium, magnesium, iron, folate and fiber. Tart or sour cherries contain more beta carotene and slightly more vitamin C. I used cacao to give this recipe a chocolaty flavor. You can find cacao powder at most health food stores or online. If you have a sensitivity to caffeine, I recommend substituting…

    September 21 marked the 30th Annual International Day of Peace. Yoko Ono contributed John Lennon’s “Imagine” to be played on this day.

You may have even seen me at Strawberry Fields over the years, congregating with other people in the only way that makes me feel remotely comfortable; coming together for music.

I am financially responsible for this family, and I take that responsibility very seriously. I don’t have a large support circle, and I have intentionally set myself up that way.

  • More Than Your Average Oatmeal – it’s OATRageous!

    Emma Larocque
    11 Sep 2014 | 9:03 am
    Growing up I hated oatmeal. There, I said it. It's a hard thing to admit, oatmeal being such a healthy food that you should eat EVERY day, and all. As I got older, I started to realize that while overly mushy quick oats with brown sugar just were not my cup of tea, I COULD like oatmeal if I made it right. These days I like my oatmeal piled high with crunchy apple slices, raisins, cinnamon, hemp hearts, ground flax and almond milk. But I have to admit, though I love to cook, that's about as adventurous as I get with oats in the breakfast department. Skip all the main meals of the day, and…

Because they aren’t adoptable they have the highest kill rates in animal shelters, and though talked about and debated regularly, they are rarely seen.The Putsches’ photographs bring feral cats into focus, showing these…

  • Broccoli Tahini Bisque

    23 Sep 2014 | 6:18 am
    Fall has officially returned, and with it my penchant for soups. This broccoli tahini bisque is almost as easy to make as it is luscious. Yeah, “luscious.” You read that right! Restaurant Week wasn’t something I’d ever taken note of, probably on account of the fact that I’m not a middle-aged rich suburbanite foodie. So it was purely coincidental that the first time I went to G-Zen, a fancy vegan restaurant in Branford, was during Restaurant Week. Really, it was serendipitous, because G-Zen is expensive, and my partner and I got to try a half dozen of their dishes…
  • Banana Nut Porridge with Oatmeal, Quinoa, and Teff

    22 Sep 2014 | 5:32 am
    Overnight oats are my default breakfast in the summer, but once the temperatures begin to drop, I like to spend chilly mornings cozied up with a hot bowl of oatmeal. This banana nut porridge with rolled oats, quinoa, and teff is currently my favorite weekend breakfast. It’s kind of funny how enthusiastic I’ve gotten about oatmeal over the past few years. Growing up, I ate the same thing for breakfast every single morning before school: a slice of toast with cinnamon sugar or a bowl of instant oatmeal. I hated the monotony so much that I swore off breakfast one day and refused to…
  • Deconstructed Summer Roll Salad

    For the first couple of months of summer, I made fresh spring rolls like it was my job. By the time August rolled (ha!) around, I’d mostly lost my patience for assembling them. I got lazy, okay? And thusly was Deconstructed Summer Roll Salad born! With kale, mango, cucumber, bell pepper, cilantro, lime, and peanut dressing, this salad is everything that’s good about summer rolls, minus the annoyance of wrapping them up into actual rolls. In 15 minutes, you can throw together a bowl with all the flavor of fresh, crispy summer rolls and dipping sauce. It’s all going to the…

    So I’ve already taught you how to drink black beans and cucumbers. Next up? Beets. Enter this gloriously hued, brightly flavored strawberry beet smoothie. Do I qualify as a full-fledged weirdo yet? There was a time when green smoothies sounded weird and excessively healthy to my ear, but now that I’m fully immersed in smoothie culture, I’m well aware that just because you added a handful of spinach to what is, in essence, a milkshake, doesn’t mean you’ve made some sort of cancer-curing elixir. I love adding greens to smoothies as much as the next blogger, but a…

    Were yesterday’s gluten-free oatmeal raisin cookies still not healthy enough for you? Then perhaps these raw oatmeal raisin balls will be more your style! I know energy ball recipes are absurdly old hat at this point, but there’s a reason they appear on every blog on the Internet. Three reasons, to be precise: they’re easy, delicious, and good for you, too! Personally, I tire of putting dates and cashews in everything, so as with my raw almond fig balls, this recipe is free of both. They don’t taste like cookies, but they are seriously fantastic, if I may say so…

    I’m about a month away from running a half-marathon. I haven’t said a word about it here. The further I move into the vegan movement the closer I get to people who really push the health side of things – often to the point of shaming others. You know, the  “go vegan and get skinny” message. I’m right next to them – in events, at classes, socially – and I’m round and I feel judged. Often.

Luckily, as one of those lucky people whose job sometimes includes up to 2 or 3 business lunches a week, I’ve gotten a lot of practice. As you can imagine, there are very few downsides to getting a free lunch, but between clients, suppliers, and co-workers, I’ve had to reveal my vegan status to a lot of people – often much sooner than I’d be comfortable with in real life.

We started feeding her and set about finding her a foster family that could take care of her while she was carrying her kittens. She had 6 adorable fluffy babies, all girls. They named them after princesses and found them all homes. Afterward, they brought Porchy to a feral cat colony, but a few weeks later she miraculously appeared on our Porch once more.Porchy and her babiesWe were told that she wasn't indoor cat material.

    A blog reader recently emailed me hoping to see a gluten-free version of an oldie but goodie blog recipe – the popular Healthy Strawberry Oat Bars from way back in 2010. There’s something about this time of the year that makes me crave jam-filled oat crumble squares (or really, any kind of baked good, who am I fooling!), so she didn’t need to twist my arm. Not only is this version gluten-free, but it uses coconut oil instead of vegan butter (reduced by about half!), and showcases a new and improved crispy topping. The topping gets crunchy and golden, almost like a granola. Wowzers.

    Every year, the U.S. vivisection industry alone accounts for a spending of over $18 billion dollars on animal testing and vivisection. The U.S. National Institutes of Health is the greatest source that funds animal testing and vivisection, with an annual budget of over $13 billion dollars which, by the way, is greatly funded by our own tax payer dollars. Not to mention the over $1 trillion dollars spent annually on healthcare. Over 100 million non-human animals are experimented on  each year in the most gruesome and despicable ways possible.

If you stop anyone on any given day and talk to them about animal rights, almost everyone will not want to hear it. Most people will zone you out and once in a while even become enraged by what you have to say. I have found that the typical person just does not give a damn about animal rights.

However, no regard is ever given to the callous exploitation and horrendous treatment of our majestic friends.

  • Forks Over Knives Cookbook Project: Mac and “Cheese”

    My husband lives off of macaroni and cheese so I was hoping this healthy version would taste at least somewhat good so I would have something to make him for dinner during Lent and other fasting seasons. Unfortunately, he didn’t even try it because he did not like the smell. I do not blame him because I did not like it either. The final dish ended up being sweet and dense. The cookbook says that, after baking it in the oven, it gets crunchy on top without even having to add breadcrumbs.

    I’m sad to say that this was the worst recipe from the Forks Over Knives cookbook that I have tried so far. I had high hopes for this sauce because cheese is something I really miss when eating a plant-based diet. I knew that it wouldn’t taste exactly like real dairy cheese but this was just gross. The best way I could describe it was bland, sweet, and vegetabley. The nutritional yeast definitely gave it a slightly cheesy flavor but it was still gross. It might taste better next time if I left out the cashews, which I thought made it too sweet, and if I did not cook my onion first. Not…
