I bake vegan sweets professionally and write on Vegansaurus for kicks! Sometimes I even recipe-test for VegNews magazine and cookbook authors. The most elegant person in sweatpants you know.

 

I made fun of my mom for leaving my niece’s poopy diaper in the kitchen (wrapped up in a bag, ready to go in the garbage outside, but I was freaking out that my cat had an accident out of the blue), and she shot back, “I smelled something funny when I was laying on the couch, and I noticed your new shoes were under the coffee table. Do they already stink?”. 

yes. 

The 10 Best Vegetarian Restaurants In Chicago, 2014 Edition

Can I tell you a secret? 

I’m glad The Handlebar made this list, and slightly relieved surprised The Chicago Diner didn’t. 

THE HANDLEBAR IS FUCKING AMAZING. In terms of comparing some same-price shit, It’s like Weird Fish vs Saturn Cafe in the Bay Area. 

The author is wrong though, when she says don’t make seitan at home. It’s best made from scratch! How is she going to judge a 18/19/20 year old’s cooking? PRODIGIES DON’T COUNT.

I’m really glad I’m moving to LA at 32, as opposed to 22. 

It just feels better, now. We’ll see though, won’t we!

I’m reading like a “I dunno, whatever, some fucking” article about an actress and they do that thing where they go “But don’t worry ladies! Even SHE has parts of her body she hates” like they’re throwing me a fucking lifeline but all I wanna do is scream NONONO STOP IT YOU DO NOT NEED TO TELL ME…

I just made my first batch of vegan fudge, and I’m really into it! I used this recipe, and added a handful of semi-sweet vegan chips and some pomegranate liqueur. I guess I didn’t expect it to turn out, so I didn’t measure out my changes. I melted the liqueur (A shot? Half a shot? Who knows!) and chips down with all of the other ingredients. It’s super delicious and easy, so go on and give it a whirl. Next time I am going to try it with coconut milk, and maybe half a cup less of powdered sugar* because it was very sweet and just a little bit grainy. But otherwise very good! 
*I know sugar is a hot topic, so here are a couple resources on finding vegan sugar! 

As for that pomegranate liqueur, darling, we all know I have a heavy-handed pour.

In which Buffy meets Hannibal, figures out he eats people and then decides to outpun him.

So brilliant. So very brilliant. I’ve never even seen Hannibal, but it doesn’t matter.
