It is so nice in NYC today! You know what would make it nicer? Getting shwasted! So that is why I’m especially interested in these vegan cosmopolitan lime slice jello shots from More: A Vegan Food Blog. Plus, they are pretty and full of booze—just like me!

It’s Fat Tuesday! Let’s eat king cake!  »

I’ve seen Kittee Berns post multiple photos of her delicious-looking king cakes, so I knew it was time for me to get in my kitchen and try making one myself. She has recipes for both gluten-full and gluten-free versions, so I opted to make the XGXFX Peanut Butter Cup King Cake (because there’s nothing better than the magical combination of peanut butter and chocolate [Ed. note: I think that’s widely acknowledged as a fact now]). She even has a King Cake Primer for us folks who have no clue where this delectable treat originated from, along with very clear instructions on how to assemble and decorate one. So, what are you waiting for? Get to baking (and eating)! And happy Mardi Gras!

First attempt at baking a King Cake (gluten-free, nonetheless) was a (somewhat messy) success! And delicious!

Ooooh sexy sorbet from Perfect Circle Kitchen! It’s coconut vanilla bean. I do love a vanilla bean. Get the recipe here and make me some! I need a valentine! JK, love is for squares. 
I’m very interested in this Perfect Circle Kitchen blog. The subhead on the blog header is, “Vegan, vegetarian, and meat-inclusive meals, hold the fuss.” Have you ever heard of such a thing?! I was totally curious about a “meat-inclusive” vegan blog so I had a little email convo with blog’s creator, Eve Perlman.
So the base of all the recipes is vegan, but then at the very end there are suggestions for adding meat or dairy. I found this totally weird but then my friend Lizzy was like, that’s totes subversive! I mean normally it’s the vegan stuff that gets the footnote! Right? And if you have meat suggestions, maybe you will attract more meat eaters to recipes that are primarily vegan. They will see all this vegan food and be like OMFG that food looks good! Or at least they will get more used to it. I mean I doubt many meat eaters frequent vegan recipe sites; but if there’s a “meat-inclusive” option, maybe it can actually draw them in. AND THEN WE POUNCE!
That’s pretty much what Eve says the concept behind the blog is. Well there’s mostly two reasons; one is to help people transition to vegan cooking. The other is to help people figure out what to cook when there’s a vegan in the midst of meat-eaters or vice versa.
It all started when her friend asked advice on what to make for dinner when her meat-and-potatoes husband, vegetarian son, and vegan daughter-in-law were all going to be dining. She sent a recipe that could accommodate all of the different wants. After that, she “continued to write recipes for friends whose vegan children were coming home on a break from college, people who wanted to make a lifetime transition to a more plant-based diet, or dinner hosts who needed to accommodate everyone at their table.” And eventually, BAM! Perfect Circle Kitchen!
What do you guys think? Could this strategy help convert people? It’s definitely a new approach, at least to me, and I’m all for new approaches.

OMFG how is it snowing in NYC AGAIN?! All I want is to be home in front of the Roku with a nice bowl of this Leek and Potato Dumpling Casserole I saw on Kitchen Grrrls. This is pretty much my new favorite blog—it’s named after Riot Grrrls! And the logo is extra fun. And they love biscuits maybe as much as me. WHICH IS SO MUCH.
They adapted the recipe from Veganomicon so you’ll need that but you really should have that.

This recipe couldn’t be simpler and it couldn’t sound yummier. Let’s all thank Treehugger for bringing us the smashed chickpea and avocado salad sandwich! I’ve been really into avocado toast lately, at home and at a few restaurants in Manhattan. At home, I just plop some avocado on a pumpernickel bagel and sprinkle a little lemon and sea salt on top. But dang, adding chickpeas? GENIUS! And super healthy, right? 
I kind of want this right now but I’m kind of at my office desk and if I start smashing chickpeas, my coworkers will think I’m a weirdo. They already think I’m pretty odd after yesterday, when I informed them I’m on the NYC pigeon rescue street brigade.

Hold the phone! I’ve never seen anything like this before but I’m highly intrigued. Looks mushy but in the best way. It’s black-eyed peas and tofu ricotta deep dish pizza from Vegan Richa! With thyme. Thyme is the jam, right? I never used it that much until some recipe called for it a few years ago, now I love it. My mama grows it in her back yard—seems like a hearty plant!
In conclusion: get in my mouth, wacky pizza!

My sister Dear Cally and I HARDCORE LOVE muddy buddies! It’s an old side-of-the-Chex-box recipe we used to make. I’ve actually made vegan muddy buddies before, it’s not difficult, but I’ve never made muddy buddy COOKIES before! Amazing! Thanks Petite Panettiere! Imma make these and eat them ALL! And then imma make more and eat THOSE! Then, imma make even MORE and so on and so forth! UNTIL I TURN INTO A MEGAN MUDDY BUDDY!

A friend posted about this magazine Verily on FB yesterday, excited that they don’t hyper-photoshop the models. Well, I can certainly get down with that! So I clicked through, and look! They have some vegan recipes. Above is a Cinnamon Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal Parfait! Looks good, yes? YES! I think I’m in love.

What’s that? You want more Halloween fun? OK! How about Candy Corn Coolers from Paint and Tofu! Because, on a serious note, vodka is the only way you’ll get me into a costume this year. Because, on a serious note, eff that noise.
Who is this Kori character from Paint and Tofu? I like her because she’s hella funny and it seems like there’s a lot of booze at her house—two qualities I admire very much.
