So, I was recently given my very first Crockpot. I have had so much fun with it. This recipe has been my go to soup. It came about, like most of my favorite soups, when I was cleaning out my fridge and using scraps of what I had left. It... Continue reading

I would love to be posting a recipe for you right now but instead I am here to write to you about something a bit more important - gratitude. It's Thanksgiving, the day is about being thankful and stuffing our faces. Which I was lucky enough to be able to... Continue reading

Howdy! I promise that I have not forgotten about this blog here. Life has been a whirlwind of wedding planning, parties, and various sicknesses! I have set aside time this weekend to bake/cook something special. Any suggestions? I am open! Continue reading

I'm engaged!!!! And not only to the most handsome man that I've ever met but also my best friend in the whole world. He asked me yesterday in the most perfect way that I could've asked for. It was casual, it was beautiful, it was us. I even got a... Continue reading

It has been so long since I posted! I would love to say that I have been too busy, which I have been, but I have also been a bit uninspired. But thankfully, the inspiration has been coming back to me in waves so here I am! Since we last... Continue reading

In case you haven't heard it's H O T up here in the North East. Turning on the oven is just not an option these days. Which presents a problem when all you want is a chocolatey homemade treat. So,I set out on a search for a no bake recipe.... Continue reading

Ok, so technically they are Jalapeno Cheddar Black Bean & Mushroom Burgers. But that just felt too long to say. Though if you are not fond of mushrooms you could sub out with your favorite veggie. Corn, peas, maybe even some carrots would work nicely. The essential ingredients are black... Continue reading

Were at Rockaway beach today! I am in love with this place. It's a beach close to the city that doesn't feel like a "city beach". Oh and there is a Babycakes NYC stand. How cool is that? I packed a nice little lunch. These are the sandwiches I made.... Continue reading

If you asked me a year ago how I felt about watermelon I would've responded with something akin to "it's alright. I am not really into melon." This is true - I am not into melon. At all. I always regarded watermelon as my favorite of them all but that... Continue reading

This recipe is an adaptation of one that my BFF Jamie posted on her blog recently. She posts tons of vegetarian friendly recipes on her site and I thought this one looked particularly delicious and easily made vegan. The only imperative substitution was the cheese which is pretty easy for... Continue reading

Last Sunday Matthew and I had our annual Memorial Day BBQ. Well, I have only been involved in the past few but he's had them for years. It's part of the social contract you sign with your friends when you are lucky enough to have a backyard in NYC -... Continue reading

That is what Matthew unexpectedly exclaimed as we ate the dish pictures above. And that is exactly what this was. After an unusually tiring trip back to the city from my Mothers house I didn't feel much like cooking but ordering out greasy food just wasn't an option. As usual... Continue reading

I rounded out my weekend with a Birthday Brunch at my Mothers house out on the Island. There are a gaggle of May birthdays in my family so it is usually a multi-celebration and this year it was for myself and my step-father Hal. Usually when I go to my... Continue reading

When I started my first recipe blog over a year ago I swore that I would never post a brownie recipe unless it was the best brownie that I ever had. I, like many vegans, have been searching for the perfect vegan brownie. I have tried so many different recipes... Continue reading

These scones were inspired by the most delicious grocery store scone that I ever consumed. A few months ago I was running late for work and needed something quick to grab for Breakfast. So, I picked up a soy cappuccino and a vegan "health" scone at Whole Foods. Needless to... Continue reading

Hello, my name is Victoria and I am addicted to Indian food. There. I said it. I love everything about it - the sauces, the breads, the vegetables! But besides being absolutely delicious I think what I love most about Indian is how you eat it. I am a dipper.... Continue reading
