VEGAN TACOS by Jason Wyrick: Roasted Poblano Guacamole, The 4 Essential Components of A Good Taco, & A Giveaway

VEGAN TACOS by Jason Wyrick: Roasted Poblano Guacamole, The 4 Essential Components of A Good Taco, & A Giveaway

At first glance, Jason Wyrick’s new cookbook, Vegan Tacos: Authentic & Inspired Recipes for Mexico’s Favorite Street Food, looks like – well, a cookbook. But even a quick glance through the opening pages reveals that it’s much more. It’s like a history of this humble yet delicious and infinitely customizable food. It’s obvious that Jason has made a thorough study of his subject matter – and we…

My friend, Angela of Canned Time, put together a post of recollections from September 11, 2001 from food bloggers – The Fit Vegan Ginger, The Road to Serendipity, Ordinary Vegan, Bunny Kitchen, The Vegan 8, VeggieGirl, as well as her own memory of that time. I share my story, such as it is, there as well – which you can read below. The amazing photos were collected by Angela from Animal Planet…

Virtual Vegan LINKY Potluck 11

A quick personal note here. I haven’t been as attentive to some of your blogs as I would like and that’s because my cookbook manuscript deadline is only a couple of weeks away. I’ve still got SO much to do! I hope to reconnect with you all – soon – not only via commenting, etc., but to announce the date and timeline for the next (big!) Virtual Vegan Potluck!

We had a super turnout last week for…

Sugar- & Oil-free Creamy Pumpkin-Coconut Pie.

Sugar- & Oil-free Creamy Pumpkin-Coconut Pie.

I’m one of those people who stocks up on canned pumpkin and enjoys eating it (and butternut squash and sweet potatoes…) all year-round, but I appreciate that for some folks, there’s only one season in which to consume this low calorie food: Fall.

That’s the sign-in spot for something called Typepath, currently in beta version, that is a way for blog commenters to chat in real-time across blogs.  Along with Your Daily VeganVegansaurusThe Vegan Chickpea, JL Goes Vegan, For…

Virtual Vegan Linky Potluck 10

Welcome to VVLP10!

Before we dive into last week’s most popular recipes, Angela, Poppy, and I have made one small change to how to Potluck works: you will no longer be asked for a back link when you submit your recipe(s). This requirement caused problems for some, so we’re going to see how the Potluck goes without that requirement. Please DO continue to include a link back to the Potluck,…

Decadent Gluten-free Vegan Baking Giveaway and Meet Cara!

You know that panicked feeling you get when a special person is coming over to your house and you look around and realize that dust has settled over every flat surface, there’s a pile of clean laundry waiting to be folded and put away (in fact, it’s been waiting for about a week), the kitchen floor looks like the aftermath of a paintball battle (in which your team lost) and then… And then your…
