My buddies Brittany and Terrence Roche, the Plant Power Couple, are Philly vegan superstars. They’re married bloggers, inventive recipe creators and the founders of an ever-growing Facebook group, “Plant Power People w/the Roches,” a friendly forum for new and seasoned vegans. They took the coveted “People’s Choice” title at the first ever Philly MAC-Down, a local vegan mac and cheese contest, and won “Most Original” … Continue reading Plant Power Couple Releases New E-Cookbook (And Trust Me, It’s Awesome)
My mom is famous (okay, maybe just in our little circle) for her blonde brownies. She’s made them for every party, bake sale, and celebration as far back as I can remember. One friend even strongly suggested she package and sell them. Yes, they are that good. So of course I had to put my vegan spin on them and make them my own! She’d … Continue reading Recipe: Vegan Blonde Brownies
It’s the end of the summer season and, if you’re anything like I am at this point, you’ve exhausted nearly all of your summer veggie recipes. There’s only so much zucchini one can eat, right?

I have my go-to vegan products and foods. You know, those items you make sure you always – always – have on hand. For me, it’s stuff like Vegenaise, rice milk and Sriracha (that’s my dream team in the photo above). Plus, nutritional yeast (those in the know call it “nooch” ’cause we’re that friendly with it), whole wheat flour, Earth Balance spreads. My list … Continue reading What’s The Best Vegan Thing Out There? I’ve Got Answers!
If you’re like me, you are already beginning to plan your Thanksgiving menu (okay, I dream of Thanksgiving dinner all year ’round).

I’ve made pineapple-upside down cakes. I’ve also created tasty vegan versions of my mom’s Jewish apple cake. So, I thought, what would happen if those two worlds collided? And how about if I throw in a handful of fresh cranberries from my CSA farm share – aside from cranberry sauce, what in the world do you do with those little suckers anyway?
