This Week in Green Shit: Vegan magic

This week was not without its clusterfucks challenges, but luckily I eat my feelings because it means I have some great recipes for This Week in Green Shit. We spent Christmas with Bogart’s family, and it was lovely (I made a loaf version of Oh She Glows lentil walnut balls without cranberries and a mushroom…… Continue reading This Week in Green Shit: Vegan magic

Out of the frying pan

If the key to a man’s heart is through his stomach, I might be completely fucked. The Tindude™ has made a reappearance, and last night I taught him how to cook something. No, you have not fallen into an alternate dimension where I’m a kitchen goddess; it was just pan-fried tofu.  I’ve been making strides in…… Continue reading Out of the frying pan
