Kitchen Science: I will become a Kimchi Master!

Today was the day that I made Kimchi! Day one of becoming a Kimchi Master! I’ve been wanting to do this for a really long time. Most Kimchi contains either shrimp paste or fish sauce and well, neither of those are Vegan. I also wasn’t a huge fan of Vegan Kimchi, the store-bought versions always tasted…

Kitchen Science: Soy Milk

Today I successfully made soy milk from scratch. It’s a bit more of a process than cashew milk… but it was truly worth it and it tastes amazing! (recipe below) The difference in taste between store bought and homemade is huge! I did unsweetened because I am going to be using it to make yogurt….

Under Pressure!

When my slow cooker broke a few months back, I swore I wasn’t going to replace it and convinced myself that I would just use my cast iron dutch oven instead. Who was I kidding? Seriously!  I was able to trick myself into thinking this at that time because it was spring and warming up…

Philly Cheeeeeze Steak

As a vegan, one of the things that used to gross me out was seeing the horrible sign above a certain establishment that made Philly Cheese Steaks.  It turned me off. Then when my partner explained what was inside of a Philly Cheese Steak, I figured… why not Veganize it! So I did. Below are…

Meet Clara Bow

Where have I been you ask? Oh, I’ve just been over in a corner of my kitchen drooling over the newest addition and something I have been wanting for a very long time… my KitchenAid stand mixer. Oh… and by the way, I named her Clara Bow. Why? Because, just like the real Clara, she is…
