I’m a reader, a food lover, a crazy cat lady, an animal lover, local shopper and local music supporter. You can find me in East Nashville most of the time, shopping, having a drink at a locally owned bar, or eating food at a local restaurant. I like cumin and smoked paprika way more than I should, winter squashes make me happy, and while I do like most fruits, I only *love* berries and mangoes. I’d rather have salty snacks than sweets, and the darker chocolate is, the better. I still think Earth Balance is the best fake butter, Vegenaise is the best vegan mayo, and Almond Breeze tastes better than *any* soy milk. Follow Your Heart makes better cream cheese and sour cream than the tofutti varieties. Chia seeds are my favorite egg substitute for the most part, and pumpkin tends to bind better than applesauce-especially in chocolate goods. I know a lot about food and nutrition, but that doesn’t mean I’m the healthiest person. I’m extremely creative and knowledgeable about food. I come from a family of foodies and it shows if we’re talking. I’m very good at veganizing recipes, and I can also tell if veganizing is the wrong way to go.
I am not a very physically active person, but that is something I’ve committed to working on. I’m running my first 5k on October 29, 2011 and I elected to do a 5k that requires you run the entire time. We will see how it goes! I’m an open book, if you want to know anything-just ask.
I like presents. If you want to send me a present, I have an Amazon Wish List Posted Here for your convenience. I don’t expect to get anything, haha, but I know I have family who read this blog 🙂

  1. Thanks for the comment on Vegan Man Cave re: the Rosepepper burrito. I’ll have to take your advice about modifying menu items next time i’m there.

    I dig your blog. I’ll add it to my Links list.


  2. Hey!

    We’re forAnima, an animal-friendly/vegan community marketplace that will be launching soon. We’re really interested in your blog and would love to have your content on our website.

    As you will see, our site is very elegant and includes lots of fun, interactive features such as “create your collections”, “Be the Buyer” (where anyone can upload images of items they want designed in an animal-friendly way, the community votes, and designers decide whether to produce), recipes, tastemakers, and so much more. We created in this way to attract a broad audience, and showcase the wonderful vegan brands that exist in the marketplace. Our goal is to partner with our brands and drive the vegan movement by showing that ethics and selection/quality are compatible. Once we launch, we plan to heavily market our partner brands on all social media platforms, at events, and on college campuses.

    It would be awesome if you wanted to repost your recipes and blog post onto forAnima for increased traffic, or maybe even mention us on your blog! Visit our website and check it out. We’re working with numerous other vegan brands, and think a partnership would be great! Let me know if you’re interested! Also check out our tumblr and facebook:
