  1. Time to put an entry in your iCal like a commandment etched in stone:

    VeganBakeOffposter

    The First Vegan Bake-Off is happening at The Bell House Sunday, February 10th at 3pm!

    “The event is open to 15-20 everyday bakers who’ve got the baked goods to compete for the title of The Bestest, as voted for by judges and attendees. From cookies and mini-cupcakes, to pastries, tarts, brownies, fudges and bars, the Vegan Bake-Off is sure to be a sweet, sweet sugar high.

    To help crown the earthy crunchiest of them all — and to award prizesjudges Chef Adam Sobel (owner of the insanely-popular Cinnamon Snail Food Truck and Certified Orgasmic), Sarah Gross, organizer of the annual NYC Vegetarian Food Festival and owner of Rescue Chocolate, and whip-smart comedian Myq Kaplan will happily indulge in the day’s delicious vegan spread.”

  2. Happy New Year, Super Vegans!

    The LA SV HQ packed-up the ol’ Prius and headed north for the holidays. We ate a lot of truly delicious things along the way. Here’s our foodiary:

    First stop was Sunnyvale, CA. We celefeasted at Great Vegi Land, whose owner stayed open late just for us, so we ordered half the menu! This is the kind of vegan restaurant that also abstains from onions and garlic, two of my favorite things:

    Top row: Hot & Sour Soup, Tofu Clay Pot, Mao Pao Tofu With “Fish”
    Bottom row: Dry Salted String Beans, Veggie Beef With Black Pepper Sauce, Kung Pao Veggie Chicken

    We sandwich’d at Ike’s and then tweeted with the man himself about getting a location for ourselves in LA:

    Vegan Captain Kirk, Vegan Pilgrim, Vegan Chocolate Chili Banana Cookie From Cake Monkey

    We ate until all the food was gone at Merit Vegetarian, my fav:

    Spicy Delight, Mocha Chocolate Cake, Strawberry Cheese Cake, and Vietnamese Crepe

    We left Sunnyvale and continued north to Hiouchi, where the food paled in comparison to the trees. We went on a hike through Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park and found Grove Of The Titans, a secret trove of trees the size of skyscrapers.We actually had a couple other dishes, but they were so good I forgot to photograph them!

  3. Have you tried Georgetown Cupcake yet? The name is singular, which is funny because they have approximately 80 billion cupcakes for sale. I went over there yesterday to get some celebratory vegan treats for my friend The Insufferable Vegan and failed…

    It had just started to rain in Los Angeles, and if you’ve never experienced what it’s like to drive here during even the lightest of sprinkles, imagine everyone on the road white-knuckling the steering wheel and screaming bloody murder at the top of their lungs and you’re not too far off.

    I walked in to the beautiful new shoppe on Robertson just south of West Third and looked in wonderment at the sea of attractive cupcakes before me. It looked good, it smelled good, but the people milling around looked shell-shocked somehow, which I attributed to the harrowing driving conditions.

    I was a wee bit disappointed to have my internet research confirmed — there was only one flavor of vegan cupcake available, cranberry spice. Hey, one is all I need… one is infinitely better than none! So I tried to order some, and the nice woman at the register told me they were out of vegan frosting. Out of frosting? The cake is just a conduit for the frosting! But there’s at least seven frosted ones on display– what about them? “Trust me,” she said, “you do not want to eat those.” I did not want dry cakes either.

    I turned to my trusty omni companion to let him order and he said he didn’t even want anything. What?! He is a grown man who subsists on a steady diet of Oreos and soda and it was his idea to seek this place out! He took another look around, “Do you have iced tea?” She said yes and I interrupted to ask if there was a restroom. The same nice young lady looked at me as though she had had the longest hardest day at Folsom Prison Day Care and I was asking her to read me yet another story and said, “Yes, but only the men’s is working right now.” “Wow, you guys are having a rough day!” She agreed, looking in need of a chair and a hug.

    Upon my return from the loo I found my omni at the condiment bar and in his hands were a little white bag and a cup of iced tea … “They’re out of ice.”

    A woman in an apron approached us and said, “V squared?” and handed us a pink box. If you’re confused, it’s because it was confusing. ‘V squared’ is a double vanilla cupcake, but he had only ordered one, and he already had it. She shrugged and walked away. We looked around at the other customer-refugees to see who they might rightfully belong to, but all we got were pleading looks, so we fled. I realize now we should have taken them with us.

    We made it back to the car, opened up the little white bag, and pulled out a cupcake … that was not the one he had ordered. And inside the box were two more cupcakes, frosting sliding off the cakes like an avalanche in Candy Land in winter.

    Running a business is hard. Really really hard. Running a business during the holidays? Madness! The kind of insanity where a fancy cupcake store is reduced to selling frosting-free cupcakes, iceless iced tea, something horrible has happened in the WC, and they get customers’ orders wrong three different ways. I have worked holiday retail, and I empathize with anyone currently doing so. So I guess I’ll have to try for my vegan cupcake and cold beverage again some day that’s no where near February 14th. Maybe I’ll call ahead. Congratulations, Insufferable Vegan?!

  4. Possibly the dumbest vegan recipe ever, this one. (Apologies to OP Chocolate Covered Katie, who certainly has better recipes, though they might use more ingredients.)

    Possibly the dumbest vegan recipe ever, this one. (Apologies to OP Chocolate Covered Katie, who certainly has better recipes, though they might use more ingredients.)

    Peggy Wang over at Buzzfeed has posted the most ridiculous recipe round-up I’ve ever seen, 34 Insanely Simple Two-Ingredient Recipes. Now, some of these would still require real work, appliance-use, and/or kitchen mess. But still: two ingredients. My first snobby thought was that these had to be awful but then I came around to thinking they could actually be pretty darn tasty.

    Amongst the already vegan or trivial-to-veganize, I spotted:

    • Pitted Dates + Coconut Butter = No Bake Coconut Cookie Dough Balls
    • Chocolate Chips + Coconut Oil = Magic Shell
    • Peanut Butter + Ripe Bananas = Peanut Butter Banana Ice Cream
    • Soy Yogurt + Sweetener = Vegan Pinkberry (pictured)
    • Yellow Cake Mix + Lemon Lime Soda = Soda Can Cupcakes
    • Self-Rising Flour + Eggnog = Eggnog Muffins
    • Granulated Sugar + Frozen Puff Pastry Sheets = Palmiers
    • Ripe Banana + Flax Seeds = Banana Flax Seed Crackers
    • Broccoli Florets + Garlic Hummus = Creamy Garlic Broccoli
    • Melting Chocolate + Cream Cheese = Chocolate Truffles
    • Nutella + Milk = Hot Chocolate
    • Ripe Bananas + Rolled Oats = Oatmeal Cookies
    • Spice Cake Mix + Can of Pumpkin = Pumpkin Muffins (Or Cookies)
    • Onion Soup Mix + Raw Almonds = Onion Dip
    • Medjool Dates + Oats = No Bake Energy Bars
    • Sliced American Cheese + Package of Crescent Rolls = Grilled Cheese Bites
    • Pineapple Chunks + Fresh Mint = Pineapple Ice

    (Don’t complain you don’t know where to find vegan white chocolate chips or vegan nutellalikes. This is the internet; it has everything.)

    I’m also totally game to try the marinades (whisky and balsamic vinegar, ginger ale and mustard), but those seem like cheats; you still need at least one more ingredient to marinate. Either of those would go real nice on some May-Wah meats, I bet.
