To say the least, I’ve been eating well lately. Very well. Cooking has always been “my thing.” It’s always been a form of stress release that isn’t quite escapism but somehow functions in the same capacity. No matter what’s going on for me in my life (right now about 300-500 pages of reading a week and rapidly approaching deadlines for research paper prospecti) somehow in the midst of chopping…

Vanilla Pecan Cashew Milk

Vanilla Pecan Cashew Milk

IMG_3096Last Friday evening, I found myself without almond milk and definitely not wanting to leave my apartment. I’ve GOT to have some sort of plant milk for my coffee. What was I to do?Luckily, I had raw pecans and cashews in my pantry. Homemade nut milk to the rescue! (Oh the first rendition of Veganland. The tiny photos. The cuteness…)

It’s farmer’s market day! Happy vegans all across the country will be flocking to their local farmar to purchase veggies for the rest of the week, and I’m among them. I tried out the local farmer’s market for the first time last weekend. I was amazed to see not only the usual suspects (sweet potatoes, jalepenos, onions, peppers, garlic, tomatoes) but also Florida and Hass avocados and mangoes!

Life just got a whole lot better because… VEGAN QUESO!

Life just got a whole lot better because… VEGAN QUESO!

Really, there are no words. I mean. OH MY GAWD. QUESO. VEGAN QUESO! It’s like savory nectar from the kitchen gods. And is perhaps one of the best things I’ve made. Maybe ever?

Rich, savory, delicious with just the right amount of spice and umami, this dip got all manner of delicious things dipped and dunked into it. Even a dish or two got smothered by its deliciousness. The fact that it’s…

When I posted a photograph of this meal on Instagram, I said:

“In case you were wondering, bachelorhood is treating me very well, athankyou. #vegan #glutenfree mac and cheeze, Sriracha tempeh wangs, kickass salad. #vegansofig #veganfoodshare #veganmofo2014 #ladybachelor”

And it’s true.

NEW LANDSCAPE

IMG_2738 IMG_2739 IMG_2742 IMG_2748 IMG_2750 IMG_2753 IMG_2754 IMG_2684

Went on a hike last weekend to clear my head. Things have gotten quite busy for me around here! I’m so captivated by this new Florida landscape in which I am living. Live oaks, dripping with spanish moss and sporting tiny ferns on their huge branches, palm trees (EVERYWHERE), strange lakes and lagoons with beautiful blue birds who walk on lily pads and alligators in them. Lilly pads and…

OMG It’s Mofo, Oops… And chickpeas

A sinkhole that I went to my first weekend in town. The water is only emerald because it’s so deep. It’s perfectly clear otherwise.

So, Mofo has snuck up on my yet again. Oops. I really must change around my blogging sabbaticals so that they don’t coincide with the beginning of Mofo. So, I’m not technically on the blogroll for this year, but I’ll definitely be participating right here in my…
