Cookbook Review: 350 Best Vegan Recipes That Anyone Will Enjoy

This new cookbook, 350 Best Vegan Recipes, covers everything from breakfast to dessert. But what I love most about this book is that it takes the cooking from scratch to a whole other level. While most vegan cookbooks call for processed ingredients found at your local or specialty store, in this book the author dedicates an entire section to teaching you how to make some of those same ingredients yourself.  She gives you recipes and instructions for making your own vegan bouillon, homemade tofu, sour cream (tofu, safflower oil, lemon juice, vinegar, sugar, and salt), vegan sweetened condensed milk...

Cookbook Review: 150 Best Vegan Muffin Recipes by Camilla V Saulsbury

Vegan cooking has come a long way in the last few years. What used to be thought of as a fringe diet is now more mainstream; because people are finding out that going vegan doesn’t mean giving up a lot of the foods they love. You don’t have to become a crunchy, sandal-wearing hippy to enjoy the health benefits of an animal-free diet. In fact, the more I learn about the vegan lifestyle, the more I think that perhaps someday I’ll make the move from vegetarian to vegan and this book, 150 Best Vegan Muffin Recipes is one book that...

Wine Review: Nipozzano Riserva Chianti Rufina

I am not a wine aficionado so please forgive me if you are.  I don’t know about tasting notes and I have never been able to taste what the experts do; I just know if I think it is pleasant to drink, or not.  For me, a wine is fabulous if it is something I can sip and enjoy with friends – yes, I probably have low expectations – but I know what I like. So since I’m not an expert, I’m going to rely a bit on the vintner’s description for this wine.  I’ll tell you that the...
