A First Attempt At Fudge

Fudge is one of my favorite desserts. I’ve made chocolate fudge plenty of times and even a few batches of peanut butter; I try to convince myself that the easy, no-fuss microwave method of making it is just as good as any other. That’s just not true. Occasionally I go to a small beach town…

Banana Peanut Butter

I’ve always wanted to make a banana flavored peanut butter. It’s no secret bananas and peanut butter go well together. But one of the problems of a banana flavored peanut butter has always been that bananas just don’t last once you peel them. What you need is a shelf-stable banana—something like banana chips! This was…

A Nutty Spring Salad

Today my second recipe hits the Peanut Butter & Co. All Stars Recipe blog. What do spring greens, peanut butter, and white chocolate have to do together? Surprisingly, they make a terrific salad recipe. White chocolate used for savory recipes is something that’s always intrigued me. What better time to try out a chocolate recipe…

What I Miss As A Vegetarian

5 months ago yesterday was the last time I ate meat. I can still remember it, but wasn’t very exciting; it was grilled chicken from an airline meal on a plane coming back from London. At that point, I was already set on becoming a vegetarian, and wrote about it on the blog a few…

Dairy-Free Rum Raisin Ice Cream

My favorite kitchen tool is my ice cream maker. I could tell you how useful and multi-purposed the food processor is for making healthy dishes, but it just can’t hold a candle to an ice cream maker. It doesn’t churn out fresh, delicious ice cream. And don’t try and tell me “But you can make…

Home

Home is a funny concept. We all know what it feels like, but no one can define it. It’s not a building with a front lawn and a  wood porch. It’s not where the home fries burn and omelets come out perfectly. It’s not where you can watch endless hours of crappy Bravo TV reality…

How To Use Tumblr To Promote Blog Content

For the last two weeks, I’ve been trying out a new(ish) blogging platform: Tumblr. No, this blog’s not going anywhere anytime soon. Rather, I’ve started experimenting to see how a secondary food photography Tumblr blog can help food bloggers spread their content. Tumblr is all about posting and reblogging visual content between members. There is…

Reviewing The Marathon Roadmap

Hello, foodies! Today I’m taking a small departure from recipes to talk about my friend Matt’s new e-book, Marathon Roadmap: The Vegetarian Guide To Conquering Your First 26.2. Unlike most beginning marathoner’s books, this is the first to be written by a vegetarian for vegetarian. Now, I’m not vegetarian(though maybe I should coin No Wheat…

Food For Training

Saturday I didn’t want to get out of bed in the morning, because I knew I had to at least attempt a long run even after a less-than-stellar week of running. The plan was to shoot for 14 miles and—if I made it—continue marathon training for a week, and if not accept that I should…

How To Use StumbleUpon To Gain Traffic

I very well could have titled this post “How To Use StumbleUpon To Find Pictures Of Dogs In Sunglasses”. Don’t worry; I’ll teach you that, too. But I thought bloggers might gravitate towards this title more. StumbleUpon is one of those “internet fads” like Facebook or Youtube that looks like it’s here to stay. In…
