    Your comments on my Kitchen Quirks story were quite hilarious. They also led to even more funny stories here at home and among our friends and family. I got a text from a friend shortly after posting. “I’m reading your kitchen quirks post aloud to my husband (because he is absolutely nuts about the dishwasher just like Eric is). I finish reading it to him and he goes, “Ugh, I wonder what some of Eric’s tricks are? Did he write specifics?” There are many inquiring minds as to what Eric’s dishwashing tricks are, it seems. Eric is in the process of penning an e-guide for dishwasher…

    Hi, I’m Michaell and I am a tea-aholic. Especially the tea that comes out piping hot and scented with the rich aromas of East India Chai. This Vanilla Chai Chia Pudding is the perfect breakfast with a small dose of caffeine to start your day! If you are unfamiliar with the history of chai, it has evolved quite a bit in the past 5000 years. Many believe this drink was created for a royal court long ago and made with spices. But once tea was introduced by China and Britain, chai evolved into scalding milk poured over a black tea bag with spices and sweetener, then strained for the…

  • Chocolate Chip and Walnut Cookies

    3 Jul 2015 | 5:55 pm
    Most of my forays into aquafaba have been failures, but these are a smashing success. I don't know why the magic bean juice acts just like an egg in this recipe and not in others, but it does. These are thin and crispy and yet still chewy--exactly like a chocolate chip cookie should be. The recipe is adapted from The Essentials of Baking.INGREDIENTSMakes 18-24 cookies- 1 1/4 cups (200g) all purpose flour- 1 tsp baking soda- 1/2 tsp salt (only if using salted margarine/butter)- 1/2 cup (125g) margarine or butter- 1/2 cup (105g) packed brown sugar- 1/4 cup plus 2 tbsp (90g) white sugar- 3 tbsp…
  • Pressure Canned Beans

    23 Jun 2015 | 6:35 pm
    This is the first post in a series of three on pressure canning. Pressure canners are relatively inexpensive (around $130) and can save you money in the long run by providing an economical way to can vegetables, beans, and other low-acid foods. Also, you don't have to worry about BPA in cans, and you can control the amount of salt that goes into the canned foods. This first instalment is canned beans--a convenient staple for any pantry. INGREDIENTS/EQUIPMENT- 8 to 10oz dried beans per 1 litre/1 quart jar (see note below)- boiling water- canning jars with lids and rings- pressure…

  • Eggless Pasta

    7 Jun 2015 | 6:39 pm
    This is the aquafaba version of my Fresh Flax Pasta. I'm not sure it's any better than the original, but it is durable yet tender and tasty. The trick here is to add flour as needed when you are rolling out the dough. The final product should be smooth and satiny, not tacky at all. This is most important if you are cutting the dough into thin noodles with a pasta cutter. It is a little less important if you are cutting the dough by hand into broad noodles. Give the noodles a good drying before you cook them.Makes 1 lb INGREDIENTS- 2 cups all purpose flour- 1 tsp salt- 1/3 cup plain soy…

They have lots of flavour, and are sturdy enough to hold up in a sauce without going soggy. INGREDIENTSMakes 24- 2 19oz cans unsalted chickpeas, drained, rinsed, and well-drained (about 4 cups)- 2 tbsp low sodium tamari (or soy sauce)- 1 tbsp tomato paste- 1 tbsp soy milk- 1 tbsp smooth peanut…

    Eyed Click Beetle, photo Sally KneidelSaw this beautiful big click beetle on the deck a few days ago, about an inch long. If clicked away after one picture, disappearing into the brush. The two black spots are fake eyes that startle birds and other predators and give the beetle a chance to get away. Lots of butterflies and caterpillars have fake eye spots for the same reason. Click beetles move by suddenly snapping their body at the middle -- they do that by pulling a peg on the thorax out of a tight groove, sort of like pop beads. When they do that, their body flips away, accelerating faster…

    The simplest elements of a meal, those unassuming side dishes that are all too often overshadowed by flashier, more expensive, or more complex mains, serve up far more nuance than they’re given credit for. A perfect example of this is the humble ear of corn. As summer marches on and those golden yellow kernels swell larger, juicier, and sweeter underneath the hot sun, truly sumptuous fresh corn is a rare treat despite its ubiquity. That’s because few cooks truly value this starchy staple as more than just plate filler. A whole world of flavor can be found within those pale green…

    Dense, silky smooth, capable of melting so slowly and seductively across the palate that it seems to linger far beyond the average taste; cashew ice cream has certainly come a long way. Once a mere glimmer in the eye of the mad kitchen scientist who dared venture outside the standard arsenal of readily available dairy alternatives, cashew ice cream has finally hit the mainstream, and in a big way thanks to So Delicious. Textural superiority provides the unshakable foundation for all of these nutty frozen desserts, unburdened by excessive gums or stabilizers like so many commercial options.

    It was such an early spring and summer, and the weather has been so warm, that my basil is doing wonderfully well.

The salad was comprised of home-grown freshly-picked lettuce with snap peas, oven-broiled Crispy Tofu (or B of T- recipe at the end of this post but this time I crisped it under the broiler instead of sautéing in a skillet);…

    My late mother-in-law, Ruth Stuhr Clark, was very fond of Hot German Potato Salad,which I had never heard of before I married her son, my late husband Wayne Clark. It just wasn't part of my mother's culinary repertoire. Ruth was half Irish and half German and from a very large family, so I'm sure she grew up with this tasty and economical dish, which utilized leftover cooked potatoes, with little bits of ham or bacon-- a good meal-stretcher!Southern German Potato Salad ("Kartoffelsalat") is one of a number of warm (or room temperature) potato salads from various European, Balkan, Middle…

    This is the time of year that I switch from making soup several times a week to making hearty full-meal salads with whole grains, potatoes, pasta and noodles, or sweet potatoes, with beans or tofu or other vegan protein and lots of vegetables (and sometimes fruit-- fresh or dried-- and nuts).  This ensures that we have something ready-made, nutritious and tasty in the refrigerator at all times for quick meals or snacks.These recipes are two that we have enjoyed recently-- one an old favorite, and one new, made up to utilize what I had in the freezer and fridge.NOTE: About Szechuan chili…

    Animal Rights: The Abolitionist Approach

  • A “Movement” of Relentless Narcissism

    Gary L. Francione
    16 Jun 2015 | 1:16 pm
    The “animal movement” attracts many people who are emotionally sensitive. Indeed, it is this very emotional sensitivity that provides the moral impulse for many people to care about the animal issue in the first place. Unfortunately, there is a machine represented by the large groups that preys on those emotions. So those concerned about animal suffering are drowned in a sea of hideous images, animal torture porn, and “undercover investigations” and told that we must do “something.” And that “something” is to promote welfare reform and…
  • The Anti-Hunting “Ban” in the UK: A Great Business Opportunity for Animal Welfare Groups

    Gary L. Francione
    18 May 2015 | 7:25 am
    In 2009, I wrote about how the supposed ban on fox hunting was very seriously flawed in a number of ways. After raising a great deal of money, welfarists succeeded in getting a “ban” that prohibited using hounds to hunt foxes but, among other things, allowed hunters to use hounds to follow a scent and to flush out a fox (or other wild animal) and and then shoot the animal or use a falcon to kill the animal. Those who supported fox hunting flouted the law and encouraged exploitation of all loopholes with the result that more foxes were being killed than before the…

    I regularly get newsletters from the Global Animal Partnership (GAP), about which I have written before.

  • “Journeys” Into Speciesism

    Gary L. Francione
    14 Mar 2015 | 5:35 am
    For some reason that eludes me, some animal advocates believe that because it took them a while to go vegan, the position of the animal rights movement should be that individual “journeys” are just fine. But that is absurd. Imagine someone saying, “It took me a while to stop being a racist so I think that the civil rights movement should promote the idea that it’s fine for everyone to learn to embrace equality at their own pace. If someone thinks that it’s okay to discriminate against people of color, we cannot make judgments. To say that equality is an…
  • The Ringling Circus Elephants: Another “Victory” That Isn’t

    Gary L. Francione
    8 Mar 2015 | 8:31 am
    According to the animal welfare corporations, the decision to remove elephants from the Ringling Circus in three years represents a victory of monumental proportions. In fact, I received this email (my email program thought it was a “scam”!) from Paul Shapiro of HSUS, who, quoting no less a figure than Nelson Mandela, declared it to be a “historic announcement”: (click to enlarge) I have been expressing my view that to call this a “victory” is beyond absurd and I have gotten the usual reaction from “animal people” who are so taken in by the…

    Millions of Americans support the work of The HSUS and our agenda to pull out animal cruelty by its roots. Photo by iStockphotoIn 2006, scholars Brendan Nyhan and Jason Reifler presented a paper to the American Political Science Association about the “backfire effect” – presenting evidence from a series of studies to show that “when your deepest convictions are challenged by contradictory evidence, your feelings get stronger.” In short, rather than change your views when presented with incontrovertible evidence that you are wrong, you just charge ahead with your preconceived ideas…

    America's Test Kitchen lists a large skillet as one of the top essential kitchen equipment and the most important pan in the kitchen. It certainly is in our kitchen.  We use it to sauté vegetables, make sauces, and to make risotto pasta.Last year, it was time to buy a new skillet (a pan with slopped sides that allows for evaporation) or sauté pan (a pan with straight sides that are usually higher than those of a skillet). My electric skillet has a none detachable pan and is too awkward for day-to-day use and the non-stick finish was wearing off my everyday pan.So I researched the…

    What is more nurturing to us on a daily basis than good food can be? What has always made Grandma's cookies or favorite home-style meals so special? It's not just the physical ingredients - it's the vibration of love that makes it so unique. And so Christina Ross's new book Love Fed: Purely Decadent Simply Raw, Plant-Based Desserts came to me at a good time in my life.

  • Unique Attractions and Vegan Ice Cream Across New England!

    VeganWorldTrekker
    21 Jun 2015 | 4:36 pm
    The six northeasternmost states of the USA are known collectively as “New England”. This region that I call “home”, offers scenic beauty during every season. Because the earliest settlers in the country inhabited the area, historic residences and museums abound here as well. Fortunately, more and more places across the New England states are offering vegan ice cream options nowadays! My experience devouring incredible vegan ice cream varieties in this region is worthy of sharing, so that other vegan travelers will enjoy it as well! In addition, I would like to share…

    On day two of my Arizona adventure weekend, I awoke bright and early. My tour guide and group would arrive around 6:45am. As a well-prepared traveler, I had purchased my breakfast the previous day and stored it in my hostel room. My breakfast from the vegetarian/vegan-friendly Bragg’s Factory Diner(Bragg’s Factory Diner) in downtown Phoenix was a delicious Spiced and Sliced Almond French Toast with cinnamon-ginger spiced citrus. After eating my fabulous vegan breakfast, my tour van had arrived and I was on my way to a day tour of Sedona’s Red Rocks and The Grand Canyon! As…

    Every Memorial Day weekend, I enjoy traveling to a part of the USA that I have not seen. Thus last week I spent the long holiday weekend in the state of Arizona. My limited time permitted me to visit two destinations: the Goldfield Ghost Town and the Grand Canyon region. The evening flight time allowed me to grab a bite to eat at Boston’s Logan Airport. Fortunately, Au Bon Pain now offers a vegetarian sandwich that can be made vegan without the cheese. The veggie and hummus wrap contains hummus, cucumbers, roasted tomatoes, carrots,chickpeas, romaine, field greens, basil pesto, and…

    I never need an excuse to visit Nantucket. It is my favorite destination in the entire USA! However, I had never attended a particular annual Nantucket event. The Daffodil Festival is held every April on the island of Nantucket, off the coast of southern Massachusetts. “Everything that is daffodil” can be observed during this weekend festival! This year, I decided to visit the island to experience this time honored ritual. The fast ferry from Hyannis brought me to the island in about one hours time. As we pulled into the harbor, the first sight that caught my eye, was the daffodil…

A little known fact is that the state of New Jersey can boast of having the greatest number of cherry blossom trees in the entire country! Newark, New Jersey is home to Branch Brook Park where the vast majority of these trees reside. A thousand cherry blossom trees are being planted this year, bringing the grand total to 5,000! These blossoming trees have always piqued my curiosity, so this year I decided to pay a visit. My journey began from the bus station in Boston, Massachusetts; arriving four and a half…

  • Vegan Banana Bread

    claryn
    16 Jun 2015 | 6:06 am
    I’m pretty sure there’s no produce grocery stores love throwing out more than bananas. And as I have spent a significant fraction of my life inside grocery store dumpsters, I can say without an ounce of hyperbole that I have made fourteen million loaves of banana bread in my life. (Okay, fine: maybe one ounce!) This being the case, I have kind of unwittingly become a connoisseur of banana bread over the years. This recipe is one of my all-time favorites, but it’s taken me an enormous amount of hemming and hawing to share it with you. See, I didn’t buy bananas for years…
  • Blueberry Pineapple Kale Smoothie

    claryn
    9 Jun 2015 | 5:43 am
    Yep, this one’s exactly what it sounds like: blueberries, pineapple, and kale. If that doesn’t scream “DELICIOUS” to you, you should probably get checked out by a doctor. Someone I trust advised that I give this murky-looking smoothie a real good name so as not to sell it short: Blueberry Sunshine! Amethyst Ahimsa! But what can I say? Cutesy, culturally appropriating names aren’t really my style. Just one more thing to add to the (very, very long) list of reasons I’ll never get a cookbook deal! Looks aside, though: this is a smoothie worth making. I lifted…
  • Easy Chocolate Almond Butter

    claryn
    2 Jun 2015 | 5:50 am
    Years before vegan chocolate nut butters were widely available in stores (and before I became allergic to hazelnuts!), I came up with this recipe to sate my cravings for Nutella. While delicious, it called for soy powder, which readers always seem to have a hard time tracking down. At some point I stumbled across a much, much easier way to make chocolate almond butter, so I feel obliged to share my good fortune with all of you! The concept is simple: when you grind nuts into nut butter over the course of several minutes, your food processor generates a lot of heat. Chocolate doesn’t…

    Attentive readers will note that I do in fact only ever eat one of two things for breakfast: oatmeal or pancakes. Cereal’s expensive, toast is boring, vegan yogurt is constantly being discontinued, waffles are inferior to pancakes, and a worthy bagel is as rare in Connecticut as a respectful mosh at a Hatebreed show. For those of you out there who think oatmeal is boring, check it out: I do not mess around when it comes to breakfast. Loaded with blueberries, dusted with flax meal, drizzled with maple syrup, and topped with cashew cream, this is oatmeal‘s version of an ice cream…

    2 Feb 2015 | 11:46 am
    A few years ago, I came across a recipe for a cashew-based vegan eggnog on a blog I was following. I was intrigued, but noticed right away that the recipe called for a high-speed blender, which I didn’t have. Having once attempted to soak and puree cashews in a regular blender to lumpy, gritty results, I accepted that homemade nog was not in my future, and glumly scrolled on by. But in the last days of 2013, I broke down and bought one of those newfangled high-speed blenders that I’d previously eschewed.* Hey, I’ve never owned a cell phone or a car, so I probably figured…

    Last Thursday I hopped on a plane for a short trip to Southern California. The point of the trip? To officiate my cousin’s wedding! I flew to San Diego and stopped by Native Foods for a bit to eat before making the quick one hour-ish drive to Temecula. I stayed at an Airbnb “retreat” (small cottage house) on a farm. I don’t know why I was so surprised to find horses, a goat, chickens, roosters, and breeding dogs on site. I think sometimes we get caught up in our own world (vegan, vegan, vegan) that we assume everything is the way we want it to be. Because, in my…

It’s lightly sweet, super filling (it packs 8g fibre per 1/2 cup!), and has this irresistible silky, smooth texture. I love just eating it on its own as well as making it into this shortcut “yogurt”. Adriana on the other hand…well let’s just say when I let her try some of the yogurt (a version with just coconut and water), she made a…

    So you log into Facebook, Twitter, or even into your personal email account and WHAM! You get hit with a large cluster of petitions to fill out. And because you care about animals and because you believe that petitions help the animals and assist in manifesting a vegan world, you feel almost instinctively inclined or compelled to participate in filling out as many petitions and/or attending as many protests ad you possibly can. However, most petitions, protests, and other campaigns focus on single issues that, directly or indirectly, pose as problematic for the animal rights movement. For…
  • Want A Vegan World, Yet You Are You Still Innocently Promoting Animal Welfare Regulations? But Why?

    Christian Sanchez
    22 Apr 2015 | 1:32 pm
    If you believe that it is wrong to unnecessarily harm and kill animals under any circumstances then you are morally obligated to abolish all use of animals by becoming a vegan. If, as a vegan, you decide to promote veganism then you must only promote veganism and nothing less. Years ago, as a new vegan, I had noticed that it was easy to get carried away and focus on the treatment of animals rather than promoting that they not be used whatsoever. I’ve also noticed, as a vegan, that it’s very easy to be impressed or happy anytime veganism is spoken of as well as any campaign…

  • Paradigms And The Pre-Vegan World: The Most Widely Accepted Wrong Throughout History

    Christian Sanchez
    8 Feb 2015 | 4:35 pm
    “If we are ever going to see a paradigm shift, we have to be clear about how we want the present paradigm to shift. We must be clear that veganism is the unequivocal baseline of anything that deserves to be called an “animal rights” movement. If “animal rights” means anything, it means that we cannot morally justify any animal exploitation; we cannot justify creating animals as human resources, however “humane” that treatment may be. We must stop thinking that people will find veganism “daunting” and that we have to promote something less than veganism. If we explain the…
  • Becoming A Vegan

    Christian Sanchez
    6 Feb 2015 | 4:19 pm
    Do you think it’s wrong to harm fellow animals unnecessarily? If so, then you already accept the vegan ethic as truth. The next step is to live accordingly which means living as a vegan. All animal use is forever unjustified, which means that all animal use IS unnecessary because we can live healthy, fullfiling lives without using fellow animals. If you can live optimally healthy and happily without using, exploiting, and harming others then why not? Becoming vegan is not only easy, but is the best decision anyone can ever make. It’s the most important step anyone can take in…

  • Cowspiracy: Environmental Impacts Of Animal Agriculture

    avatar
    21 Jun 2015 | 8:52 pm
    In New Zealand, animal agriculture is huge business. According to government statistics, there were nearly 3.7 million beef cattle, over 6.4 million dairy cattle, and over 30 million sheep in New Zealand in June 2013 1. Another vitally important industry in New Zealand is tourism, and our marketing image is that of a clean, green and unspoilt haven. However, these two industries are ultimately incompatible, and New Zealand’s heavy investment in animal agriculture increasingly comes at the expense of our pristine image. One prevalent example, waterways loaded with farm waste do not serve New…
  • But Plants Feel Pain Too

    avatar
    6 Jan 2015 | 12:12 pm
    Many antagonistic meat-eaters love to jeer at vegans and vegetarians and say lines such as “what about all the plants you’re murdering, they feel pain too”. On one side of the coin, it’s a bit of a cop out because they don’t want to think about the signficant pain and suffering they’re causing animals; on the other side of the coin they have got half of a reasonable argument. Recent discoveries into the sentience level of plants1 has raised concerns over whether they’re able to feel pain and discomfort. This of course raises a difficult conundrum – is it therefore just…
  • The Horrific Life Of New Zealand Bobby Calves

    avatar
    7 Jul 2014 | 6:17 pm
    Most people believe that the way a cow produces milk for humans is as natural as a bee pollinating a flower. The majority of dairy food consumers don’t realise that these cows are typically artificially impregnated each year and that over one million young babies (called “bobby calves” by the farming industry), are considered to be an annoying waste product. The fact is, that while cows naturally produce milk, it’s only as much as is needed to feed their offspring when they have them. In order to produce it in the vast quantities demanded for mass human sale and consumption,…
  • Health Benefits Of A Plant Based Diet

    avatar
    29 Jun 2014 | 2:27 pm
    Living a vegan lifestyle and eating a diet free from animal products can not only be rewarding in terms of ethics, it can also pay off in terms of health1. Fruit, vegetables, whole grains, nuts and pulses all have huge benefits beyond merely keeping a healthy body weight. An increased intake of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients, including antioxidants, can help prevent a number of conditions. Significant studies have proven that people eating a plant based diet live a longer life than the average meat-eater2. This is not something that the powerful meat industry likes to be heard and…
  • The Unsustainable Use Of Grain Feed

    avatar
    18 Nov 2013 | 6:39 pm
    When counting the cost of meat production there are many factors to consider – money, environmental impact, water expenditure are obvious, but one major cost that is sometimes forgotten about is grain feed. While water and environment have localised implications for New Zealand, grain has become a more globalised issue. It is often produced in third-world nations and shipped overseas rather than being used to feel local populations, or produced in the west and never exported for the inexpensive and efficient source of nutrition that it is. The new middle class in emerging nations…

  • My Top 10 Recipes to Make For 4th of July

    3 Jul 2015 | 2:51 am
    I’ve been racking my brain the past 36 hours on what to post about. Don’t get me wrong. I have recipes on the back burner, but it’s almost the 4th of July and I thought my recipes should be picnic or BBQ appropriate. I had a recipe made…it was ice cream. Then I took it out of the freezer and lifted it out of its cute little container only to find that the ice cream was not firm yet and flooded my kitchen counter top when I pulled it out. Then I realized my showstopper of an ice cream cake was in a practically warm freezer. I have now turned my freezer down to -2…

    Hi, I’m Michaell and I am a tea-aholic. Especially the tea that comes out piping hot and scented with the rich aromas of East India Chai. This Vanilla Chai Chia Pudding is the perfect breakfast with a small dose of caffeine to start your day! If you are unfamiliar with the history of chai, it has evolved quite a bit in the past 5000 years. Many believe this drink was created for a royal court long ago and made with spices. But once tea was introduced by China and Britain, chai evolved into scalding milk poured over a black tea bag with spices and sweetener, then strained for the…

    Chocolate Covered Brownie Cake Pops that are no Bake (& Shhhh! Raw Vegan!)? Just wait for the children to come running to your refrigerator! In fact, I bet children that aren’t even yours will mysteriously find these. I’m sorry if your fridge gets robbed. I can attest that these won’t last long and you should definitely consider doubling the recipe. You know those guys that aren’t very verbal about food? It’s more in how they act. This is how I know my husband thought I had a “good” recipe. Me: There are brownie cake pops in the fridge. Mr.

In fact, this is so good I think it’s better than a beef burger! Don’t be mistaken, it doesn’t taste like meat. It isn’t trying to compete, the flavors are just so well paired together that it is irresistible. You know when you are really full, but it’s just so good that you reach for another one anyway?

    Did you know that a cucumber can wake you up and help you feel more alive, awake, and refreshed than a cup of coffee? It’s true.

  • Why Everyone Loves Kale and You Should Too

    5 May 2015 | 12:10 pm
    It seems like every year we see different foods come “into fashion” with nutritionists, dieticians, and the whole vegan community. Kale has been one of these popular foods for so long that it’s become the butt of a lot of jokes about vegans and trendy, healthy eaters, alike. The reason this vegetable is so popular, though, is that it really is a superfood that can boost your health in a number of ways. For example, did you know that the body can absorb more calcium from a serving of kale than a carton of milk? It’s so nutrient dense and so low in calories that you can easily…

They’re great raw or cooked, and they can be incorporated into all kinds of meals, too. Did You Know…? One of the things that makes apples so versatile is that there are so many different flavors and varieties of apples to choose from. In fact, the smallest apples are just slightly larger than grapes, and the…
  • Agave Syrup – A Healthy Vegan Sweetener

    If you’re like most of us, you have at least a little sweet tooth. You love putting sugar in your coffee and chowing down on some vegan chocolate cake after dinner. The problem is, though, processed sugar has a really high glycemic index. That spoonful of delicious sugar in your coffee or tea in the morning is going to spike your blood sugar now, only to let it crash later. So what can you do? Thank goodness for agave syrup. This natural sweetener has a low glycemic index, so it provides a more stable source of energy and is safer for people with diabetes to consume than regular sugar, too.

This is why making your own granola can be rewarding in more than one way; you get a nutrient-dense treat that is just how you want it. Now, it’s almost embarrassing how easy this recipe is, but I have to tell you, it is SO good.
