  1. SuperVegan was on hand for the Mercy for Animals hosted Free to Be: A Night for the Animals in the Hamptons on the evening of Saturday, June 22.

    Attendees were promised the chance to “meet and mingle with leaders from the entertainment, political, and animal protection communities” and MFA did not disappoint.

    Looking around the room, I saw NBA champion John Salley, CNN’s Jane Velez-Mitchell, MFA’s Nathan Runkle & Eddie Garza, designers Leanne Mai-ly Hilgart & Joshua Katcher, choreographer James Koroni, Cody Carlson, a former undercover investigator for MFA who exposed rampant abuse inside factory farms (you may have seen Carlson in a recent Daily Show segment on ag-gag laws), lighting and production designer John BroderickDefeat Christine Quinn campaigner Donny Moss, art curator Robert Aloia, Our Hen House‘s Liz Dee, writer Nell Alk, DJ Stretch ArmstrongSuite ThreeOhSix‘s Daphne Cheng, among other guests I likely pushed out of the way to get to the desserts.

  3. Matt Mims, sexy vegetarian.

    Matt Mims, sexy vegetarian.

    Guys! My boyfriend Matt is a finalist in PETA’s Sexiest Vegetarian Next Door contest! I entered him (with his tacit approval) a few weeks ago as a sort-of joke, because he would never, never enter himself in a beauty contest (modest!). Now he’s made it through the first round of voting! Whoa! If he wins, he gets a trip for two to Maui, and I’m not going to pretend that wouldn’t be the BEST.

    Besides being intelligent, funny, and strikingly handsome, Matt is sexy by virtue of his washboard ribs. If you’re not convinced yet (don’tchya want me to go to Hawaii?), here’s why you should vote for him:

    1. He is VEGAN. And HOT. (See photo.) Hey, stop looking at him like that, gosh!
    2. He plays guitar and composes music for vegan art rock band HERE, with his twin brother, Dan, on drums. As you know, vegan boys/musicians rock, and we need to get the word out about more vegan bands.
    3. He runs a vegan DIY music venue in Brooklyn with his brothers.
    4. He’s the only finalist from NYC. Represent!
    5. This vegan would be so happy if he won!

    Now that you are armed with these sexy facts, take your ballot-casting fingers and follow the instructions below to vote. And please accept my future posts from Maui/shirtless shots of Matt on the beach as gratitude.

  4. Vegan challah bread

    • Did somebody say VEGAN CHALLAH? Oh yes, VegNews just did! It’s going to be a good Hanukkah this year, Jews! (Is eggless challah possible?) Psst…I think I also heard them say “vegan gingerbread cookies.” Who’s up for a vegan gingerbread house bake-off? Hmmm?
    • Farm Sanctuary reminded us to sign their Petition for the Pigs, a letter that asks President Obama to demand that the USDA extend legal protection to downed pigs. Yeah, um, did we all just assume that pigs were covered like certain other large mammals?
    • Terry Hope Romero’s vegan Latin cookbook Viva Vegan is available for pre-order on Amazon. See how dangerous—and hot—that knife makes her look?
    • Metromix declared Dirt Candy‘s Amanda Cohen Chef of the Year. Amanda Cohen sounds like Samantha Cohen, which means THAT COULD TOTALLY BE ME ONE DAY.
    • USA Today reported on school lunch standards: somehow less stringent than fast-food standards! Even KFC won’t buy the chickens kiddies are eating as chicken plywood nuggets.
  5. Susan Asasto's blue-ribbon-winning Apple Pie with Crunchy Pecan Topping

    Susan Asasto’s blue-ribbon-winning Apple Pie with Crunchy Pecan Topping

    I’d like to nominate Susan Asato for Super Vegan status. This lady submitted several hand-cooked vegan creations to the Orange County County Fair and took home some distinctions:

    • Vegan Sun Dried Tomato Cornbread Muffins – 1st place Muffins, plus Division Winner for Quickbreads (muffins, scones, loaf pan breads, coffee cakes, etc.)
    • Vegan Chili with Beans – Honorable Mention, Chili Cookoff
    • Vegan Apple Pie with Crunchy Pecan Topping (recipe below!) – 1st place, Pie Contest
    • Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies with Pecans (recipe below!) – 2nd place, Chocolate Chip Cookies with Nuts

    Keep in mind, these competed against “regular” foodstuffs, not in some “special needs eaters” category, so kudos to you, Susan, for raising the esteem of vegan cuisine!

    Here are two of her award winning recipes for you to bake for me (double up and follow a “one for you, one for me” policy of vegan baking): Continue Reading…
