For instance, a high school classmate reached out to me recently expressing the desire to add more plant-based foods to her diet. In particular she, like many others I’ve heard from, imagines the elimination of dairy will be a…

Final Main Street Vegan Academy Lunch with Victoria Moran and Joshua Katcher at Candle Cafe West

Gluten-Free and Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

Gluten Free Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

It was less than two years ago that I was preparing standard American fare from my large collection of recipes featuring meat, fish, dairy and egg ingredients. When I transitioned to a plant based diet, somewhat quickly and unexpectedly, I was completely lost when it came to cooking. So I turned to an on-line bookseller and searched for vegan cookbooks….
