Episode 7 – Interview: Rósa Guðmundsdóttir

SHOW NOTES: Episode 7 (Air Date: October 26th, 2012) Our sincere apologies for our longest delay yet in between episodes.  Ben tried to invent a new way of recording phone interviews which only ended up in a huge editing nightmare which severely delayed production.  We are still aiming to get you two episodes per month:  one regular, and one interview.  Fingers …

Zen Palate

An ode to Ben’s favorite restaurant! Most people have heard how devastated I was when I got back from Iceland, only to find my local Zen Palate (and I mean LOCAL!  Like ONE block away from me!) had CLOSED!  Luckily there are still a few other locations around town. Today after a photo shoot in my studio, I had a …

Candle Cafe Frozen Entrees

 I know we all love to cook and eat out but sometimes you simply need a delicious dinner fast. Am I right or am I right?? I recently noticed these frozen entrees from Candle Cafe for sale in my local Whole Foods. Aren’t they tempting? I have tried all of them and my official opinion is YUM. My favorite is …

Artisan Vegan Cheese book launch party

Hey everyone! Laura was lucky enough to attend the Artisan Vegan Cheese book release party this weekend in San Francisco and she was floored by the wonderful food and the amazing cookbook! Yep, you read the book cover right. This book is an Artisan Vegan Cheese COOKBOOK. Sit down. The incredible Miyoko Schinner has just released this jaw dropping selection …

Amichi’s Pizza!

Laura loves pizza y’all! Always willing to travel the world and taste the vegan stylings…. For those of you who don’t know, I am a bit of a pizza junkie. Unfortunately I do not live in a particularly “hot” vegan pizza zone so I’ve been getting by on frozen Tofurkey pizzas and ordering cheeseless pies from the local pizzerias. A …

Way Out Waffles

Laura took her sexy butt up to San Francisco to check out the Way Out Cafe Waffle Party. She freaking loved it! Despite having convienantly let many people think/assume that I have moved to San Francisco, I actually have not. I live about an hour south so when I make the drive up I like to get my eat on …

Ben Goes Green! Episode 2!

Hey everyone! Ben’s green adventures continue………….. Today was a two-meal day. What I wanted to do was go to Blossom Cafe for pancakes and tempeh bacon. More brown, brown, brown… So I offered myself a compromise. I went to Maoz Vegetarian for a falafel sandwich (5 pieces of falafel on a whole wheat pita with hummus) and sweet potato fries, …

Basil Cashew Spread

Ready to get your drool on? Let’s talk basil cashew cheese. Absolutely one of the best things I ever tasted was Basilacotta, a new product The Regal Vegan was offering samples of at the NYCVFF 2012. I almost crapped my pants. Like seriously. Skip to 6:03 to see my honest to goodness reaction to my first taste of this ridiculously …

Talking Tofu Scramblin’

Hey everyone! As most our listeners know, Laura is a huge fan of eggs. (or is a recovering huge fan of eggs) She has spent the majority of her short vegan life looking for anything and everything that will remind her of eating her formerly favorite food. First things first. A scramble. When I first realized that I wanted to …

Wholesome Chow!

Laura made her first gluten free cake this week! Needless to say she was pretty nervous. I have never made a gluten free cake before. Frankly I haven’t tasted many gluten free treats that I like either. Barbara over at Gone PIe makes wonderful brownies and cookies and I’ve enjoyed many Babycakes treats as well, but overall I tend to …
