Vegan Irish Soda Bread

There are a lot of half Irish people in my life: my brother, his wife, my boyfriend… So, I feel a kinship with the Irish culture and its delicacies. One of my favorite treats is¬†Irish soda bread, which I haven’t been able to eat in years… until today. ūüôā Whaaat?! Believe it or not, making…

Review: Hella Vegan Eats

After a long day hiking, Jill and I took a non-vegan friend to Hella Vegan Eats in Oakland. The ambiance is open and rustic with a back patio equipped with large picnic tables and string lights. And they allowed our dogs! I ordered the “chicken” and pesto mac & cheese with some extra “bacon” (pictured…

Sunday Feels: Bonjour Monsieur Croissant!

I’m in Berkeley. I walk into the Butcher’s Son and see a fresh pile of vegan chocolate and croissants. I freeze. I can’t believe my eyes. A real croissant that I can eat? That I will be able to enjoy that is plant-based?! Gimme.Gimme.Gimme. As I am paying for my impossibly flaky and tender croissants…

All the Things Potato Pancakes

Sometimes you have a bunch of random ingredients in your refrigerator, and you need to make sense of them. For me, this is¬†a regular occurrence. I’m 27 years old, and I still haven’t been able to go on a successful grocery shopping mission. I usually end up¬†buying a bunch of random plants and vegan goodies¬†and…

Restaurant Review: Shizen Vegan Sushi

In the beginning of this vegan journey, I would visit my friends and family back home and they would constantly ask me, “what?

Everyone Knows That Ikea Has Vegan Food And You Don’t

On my recent excursion to Ikea, I looked at my husband in the parking lot and was like, “dude, we gotta hit up that Ikea Cafe!” and he looked at me and was like, “obviously” but with his eyes- you know that look. Anyway we got into the line and I usually just get the…

Review: The Purple Carrot

The best part about getting portioned out ingredients for your meals delivered to your door is… everything. For months, Brenden and I have envied our friends who were using Blue Apron to get fresh ingredients delivered along with fun recipes. We couldn’t join the party because¬†they don’t offer vegan options. But alas! Over Thanksgiving my…

You’ll Thank Us Later- Papayas and Pineapples for Dinner

If you have ever looked at a fresh papaya and thought, “what do I do with this?”, you’re not alone. I passed by a fruit market in the mission a few months ago and was like what?! Papaya for $1?! SOLD! And I got in the car, and my husband looked at me and said,…

Reasons Why We Love Local Farmers Markets

First of all, the people. Jillian and I are chatty gals. We like to know where you’re from, how your day is going, how long you’ve been growing produce, and what seasonal veggies you recommend. So, one of our favorite reasons for going to Farmers’ Markets is to talk with the farmers! We meet a…
