So many vegan options available on the new menu at 8th & Roast, that I had a difficult time choosing one (so I got the soup and a banh mi to go, too)

There's some really good science in this (unlike many diet plans), but 7-14 days of irritability? Yeah no. No can do.…/why-intermittent-fasting-may-…

Fasting for 16 to 24 hours can help you burn fat and maintain muscle, and comes with minimal downsides, research suggests. Sound too good to be true? Find out for yourself.

Egg-less Aquafaba Meringue Cookies Lesley • January 24, 2018 • Leave a reply Once in a while, I get the itch to try something new in the kitchen. I’d probably act on that itch a little more if someone else would clean up after me, but whatevs. I finally decided to give aquafaba meringues a cha...

It’s time to make the best of this snow situation!

Snow Cream Lesley • January 31, 2010 • 5 Comments There are things that are common in other parts of this country that aren't so much in the south and when we southerners encounter them, it's with bemusement. Really thick yankee accents. Lacrosse. Men wearing Speedos. Snow. We like snow, though....

It me

Don't lie. We all know someone who orders like this.

New! Pineapple sweet potatoes, inspired by Nashville restaurant Jamaicaway Restaurant and Catering. Great alternative to sweet potato casserole for Christmas dinner (unless you ask Mini Eats, who disagrees).

Pineapple Sweet Potatoes Lesley • January 3, 2018 • Leave a reply Jamaicaway is a Caribbean style restaurant in Nashville that is one of my very favorite restaurants. They have an extensive vegetarian and vegan selection in addition to omnivore items and it's just like the traditional soul food ...

The only thing I'd change about this list is to give props to Denny's kale salad, which is my current favorite salad to have at home (massaged kale topped with vanilla yogurt, Craisins, and vanilla almond granola).

Tom Sietsema ate three times each at the top 10 full-service chains, and tells you what’s good — and what’s not

If you're looking for a new side dish for Thanksgiving (or just a new way to actually enjoy brussels sprouts), I *highly* recommend this recipe from Herbivoracious. I made it Sunday night and it was fantastic. Make it vegan (as I did) by using olive oil instead of butter and agave nectar instead of honey. If you don't have champagne vinegar, apple cider or rice vinegar should work fine.…/brusels-sprout-and-apple-hash-…

Many thanks to BuzzFeed for confirming that I don't need an air fryer. It's definitely this year's Instant Pot (the number of air fryer cookbooks is nuts), but it's not the versatile tool that the IP is and probably only good for people who 1) have room for another large kitchen gadget and 2) eat a lot of fried frozen food.

The Airfryer is supposed to fry foods in a ~healthier~ way. But how legit is it? I wanted to find out.|By Michelle No

I finally finished the wrap-up of our big summer road trip. This installment is even lighter on food content since good vegetarian food was not easy to come by. But we did find at least one wonderful "oasis."…/wild-west-road-trip-2017-part-3-ea…/

Wild West Road Trip 2017 Part 3: Eastern Wyoming and South Dakota Lesley • November 7, 2017 • 2 Comments Our last day in Jackson Hole was a sad one. We did not expect to love the area as much as we did and there was still a lot to do and see, not just in Yellowstone, but in the Grand Tetons as well....

This is going to be a fantastic luncheon (with a vegetarian menu!).

I wonder if the current owners of my old house will read this and think, "oh, so that's the deal with that extra bin..." 😁

Metro now has two drop-off sites for kitchen scraps: "great news for anyone who wants to help the environment by reducing landfill waste and/or doesn’t want rotting food stinking up their garbage can."

Two Metro drop-off sites now accept compostable kitchen waste, an eco-friendly step

Finally! Part 2 of our Wild West Road Trip is live on the blog. Narrowing hundreds of pictures down to just a few dozen is hard work!…/wild-west-road-trip-2017-part-2-ut…/

Wild West Road Trip 2017 Part 2: Utah and Wyoming Lesley • October 11, 2017 • 1 Comment After visiting Colorado, our next stop was Midway, Utah just outside of Park City in the Heber Valley. It’s where my sister-in-law’s parents live and was a great stop over the 4th of July holiday, which is the bu...

Don't forget! Foodblogger bake sale to benefit the Houston Food Bank today from 12noon to 4 at TailGate Beer 7300 Charlotte Pike. I made *vegan* chocolate midnight cupcakes and *not-veg*n* s'mores brownies. Everything is just $2 each! Many goodies that are much more tempting than mine, too 😆.

Many of Nashville's best bakers are getting together to raise funds for those affected by Hurricane Harvey. Come out and help yourself to help others. I'm planning to make some vegan chocolate cupcakes that are so good, you'd swear they were full of butter!
