The Top 100 Foods I Want to Cook

To go along with the omnivore’s 100 and the vegan 100, I’ve decided to write out the top 100 foods that I want to cook and as I fix them, I will scratch them off and perhaps replace them with something new.  Some of these ideas are pretty mundane, some not so.  Some are vegan, […]

Vegan Cheese Sauce Revisited

In this post on Nutritional Yeast, I gave a recipe for cheese sauce from How It All Vegan!: Irresistible Recipes for an Animal-Free Diet.  Well I got to chatting with Wordvixen, a Twitter buddy of mine, about the recipe. Apparently Ms. Vixen grew up on nutritional yeast (good for her) and said she would try […]

Bragg’s Amino Acids

 In my recipe for seitan, I listed Bragg Liquid Aminos as one of the ingredients.  Everyone’s favorite Domestik Goddess then asked what exactly they are. I thought it would be a good thing to talk about since until only the last few weeks did I actually become aware of how to cook with them.  Even then I went […]


The Vegan 100

In response to The Omnivore’s Hundred, Bittersweet has produced The Vegan’s Hundred. The rules are the same for this list as the Omivore’s.  I will bold all the foods I have eaten as I eat them, however I am only bolding them if I have eaten the vegan version.  (All links are Bittersweet’s because she deserves the credit) Last edited 9-10-08.

The Joys of Nutritional Yeast

I’ve been trying to branch out and try new ingredients, especially those typically associated with vegan cooking.  During my experimentation, I ran across Nutritional Yeast in several recipes (including my spicy “buffalo wings”.)  I had no idea what it was, so I consulted my friendly local Internet and found out all sorts of interesting tibits. Nutritional yeast […]


Kiva and Food Blogs

Heidi from 101 Cookbooks has again inspired me, though this time without a recipe.  After reading this post about setting up 101 Cookbooks as a lending team, I was inspired to log back into my Kiva account and make sure that all of my donations were allocated. For those of you unfamilar with Kiva, they make […]


Spicy Barbecue Seitan Wings

So last post, I talked about making my own seitan so that I could fry it up and make “buffalo wings.” Here are the seitan wings I made: It’s kind of hard to see, but they turned out really well.  There was something about the light, moistness of the homemade seitan that turned into juicy wings […]

Homemade Seitan

For over year now, I have been a fan and evangelist of seitan, sometimes called Wheat meat or Buddha Food, which is a dough made from the vital gluten of wheat.  But up until recently, I was using store bought packages rather than making my own.  However, I decided that needed to change.  Here I am, […]


In the Words of Ron Burgandy…

I’m kind of a big deal.  🙂 … or something like that.  I did want to say that I was recently given the opportunity to guest post on so you wannabee a Domestik Goddess? which was a great opportunity.  I really enjoyed reading through her site.  I got a lot of recipes and gardening ideas while my […]
